Roads or Basebore?

The roads in my city are trashed yet the city government is spending tons of tax payer money on the local basebore stadium. Not one public vote and no out cry but hey it's basebore

ugh. when will people wake up and realize that the citizens are being fleeced by rich contractors and team owners? these things are not built because the builder has a heart of gold and wants to provide entertainment for the masses. they're built to make money. period. and most of the time, the owners get the city representatives to sign off on some kind of grant to fund part or all of the cost of the building. so the coliseum that no one asked for is built at public expense. it's a win-win for the team owner -they can't lose money. And where do the profits go from ticket sales? To the poor team owners of course, to help them pay for their monumental expenses. It's a lose-lose for the public.

I Hope We Lose!
