    Here is an exchange between me and sittarro. I still can't figure out what his problem is.

    Sitarro is right. There should be a $20 federal tax imposed on each and every sports ticket bought. That'll fix 'em!:razz:

    Why? Our athletic department doesn't get any federal funding. Or state funding for that matter. Or anything but voluntary contributions from citizens. Do you just want to tax culture or something?

    Tax tax tax and tax some more. Punish excess, punish success. It's not fair that poor folks can't afford tickets to live games and pay-per-view buys. TAX it, punish these rich, overindulgent bastards!

    That's not true. The working poor evidently can afford tickets to LSU games. Maybe not 50 yard line seats, but no one wants to sit in the snotty rich people section anyway.

    I don't hate sports.

    I think most die hard sports fans are sort of goofy, though.

    Does this board rule apply to you Tuba?

    PM Guidelines:
    If exclusively personal contact is needed, use the Private Message system. Do not post a topic where only one member is expected to answer. Posting and Language guidelines extend to the PM system. USmessageboard.com maintains the privacy of its’ users and will not access Private Messages unless ordered to do so by a Court of Law.

    Posting information gained through private messages is prohibited unless specific permission is granted in a public forum and/or to a USMB staff member from the member who is a participant in the PM conversation.


    Don't bother with the PMs anymore dickhead, they will just be erased and not responded to........... LSU is a fag school, you must feel right at home.
