ZK, surely you realize that without the tax incentives and benefits for companies investing in communities, the free market system as we know it would come to a grinding halt.

You may want to rethink your definition of “free market.”  Do you understand that I am the one actually making the free market argument here?

Are you saying you want that system to end? Where would that end up? The USSR in the 50-80s? Is that what you would like? (Not that I'm calling you a communist LOL)

God, I hate Rashid Tlaib.

--Hey Israel, can I come and visit?

--Well, it's not a real visit.  All you're going to do is talk shit about us and make as look as horrible as possible, so... No.

--Okay, well then can I just visit my grandma?  Promise I won't be political or try to make you look bad at all?

--Well okay then, yes.  You can come see your grandma if you promise not to make it a public way to badmouth us.

--Oh yeah?!?  Well, I've decided not to see my grandma because Israel sucks so bad!

Seriously?

Providing tax incentives and benefits to companies making big investments is the nature of the game, it goes on everywhere, not just here but around the world. You may not like it a bit that is the way it is. I see it up close in my job (as a corporate lawyer).

Yes, crony capitalism happens everywhere, and I remain opposed to it everywhere it happens just like murder, rape, theft and all the other bad shit that unfortunately happens all over the world.

I never saw or read the claim you make that MLS is wanting to be the "top league of the world  in 2022". Do you have any backup for that? In any event, that is an insane statement to make. And never gonna happen, obviously.

And yes, you are way too pessimistic about MLS. Would love to host you at an FCC home game so you can take in for yourself what is going on here. Heck, I'll even treat you the pre-game Taste of Belgium beer and food shindig.Heck, that goes for you too, Butter. I've got season tix. Let's do this!
