Cycle Dudes, just have fund-raisers and raise the money yourselves...get the needed permits from the city, just like everyone else does....WHY SHOULD the taxpayers help fund this?

Ya know I always wondered WHY WE TAXPAYERS don't VOTE on giving foreign aid to countries, or those asking for welfare. Now both of these have depleted our savings and now Iread, the Prez is concerned about the cost of making pennies and nickels. That little bit of change profit, will never make up for losses that perhaps could have prevented OUR BORROWING FUNDS FROM CHINA to keep America afloat. what is boils down to is, these countries will turn on us, oops some have and WE STILL are giving them aid. Also, the younger generation of single moms and leech boyfriends having babies are using welfare for every living need. Do ya think, they will have a trade to benefit the livihood of America? They are the LOST generation, they are drop-outs,breeding and drug users..gobbling up every FREE WELFARE OFFER out there. WHO IS PAYING FOR THIS...WE, JOE AND JILL TAXPAYER...Who have to use coupons and bike to work...CUZ, WE ARE GOING BROKE!

Ah, the "entitlement". The most pervasive, damaging, habit forming, and most abused drug. And the government is the distributor. In the 'war on drugs', they should turn the gun on themselves.
Remember Steppenwolf? Goddamn the pusherman!

Love Steppenwolf, the song Monster is very good also. They wrote their songs about all they seen with from politics to drugs. imagine them shaking their heads and saying "it didn't get better, but only worse".

How is this different from tax payer money being used to bribe companies or businesses with tax abatements for 30 years in exchange for moving to their city and creating 20 or 30 jobs that might might be gone after a year or two?

How about tax payer money being used to subsidize oil companies who made billion in profits?

How about tax payer money being used to rebuild highways, schools, bridges and water lines we have bombed to pieces in other countries while Republicans voted not to rebuild our failing infrastructure?

Maybe it's time crack down on the greed addiction in American and ween everyone off the government tit.
