Here are the teams that paid lux tax on the 2016 payroll:
- Dodgers, $31.8MM tax bill
- Yankees, $27.4MM
- Red Sox, $4.5MM
- Tigers, $4MM
- Giants, $3.4MM
- Cubs, $2.96MM
I would imagine a game or two of concessions and parking will take care of that tax bill.
Wonder if Timmy’s ‘conditioning’ may not relate to his bust a few months back. People smoke for a lot of reasons. There are many different grades of smokum. Like the Indica is soporific, kinda like opiated quaaludes. Sativa is more of an activator/energizer. Maybe Tim is off his medicine. Maybe a lot of his hyperanxious teammates could use some good, positive, energizing but relaxing medication.
Fkkk the Feds, the Duponts, the Mellons and Big Pharma. At least you Californians have the chance to vote on it this fall by way of Initiative and Referendum. Democracy, baby. As for “bad influence on kidz” ~~ psssss on that nonsense. Ask any 16 year old. He’ll tell you where to get anything you want. It’s the hypocritical, corporate-serving attitudes that gets em thinking all forbidden fruits are good and then they go doing something stupid like taking hard drugs.
Ignore me if i’m “off message” and if you suffer from an acute case of cognitive dissonance. For a fact i know that my writing and the insights behind it happens to be one helluva lot better when i’m buzzed than not ~ which happens not to be now. I’ve been out in the sun hoeing weeds a bit long, my brain’s a bit cooked, the Giants lost last night and i’m in a bit of a pissed off mood.
This whole country needs a good reality check.
