Presently, we are visiting relatives in the San Diego area and a story, near and dear to my heart, has caught my attention. The San Diego Chargers are likely playing their last National Football League game in San Diego.
What If There Was a Funeral and Nobody Came?
There was a time when a professional team was going to leave a city, it was a very big deal. The 70,000 fans that go to each home game and the millions that watch across the country would be distraught. When a city is forced to leave its home city, it is a significant event, a “disturbance in the force” event.
The topic that has captured my attention is the National Football League’s failure in this wonderful city by the sea. The future of professional football San Diego is in real jeopardy and the NFL team, the San Diego Chargers are looking for a new home. San Diego has played host to the Chargers for almost 60 years (1961).
The team’s success has been mired in mediocrity, punctuated with some exciting season. However, the team has always had a loyal fan base that has tolerated the abuse of the fans by the NFL, while remaining loyal to the team and their favorite players.
San Diego Voters Embrace GLEXIT and Reject the Globalist NFL
San Diego voters overwhelmingly defeated a new downtown stadium plan for the San Diego Chargers in this last Tuesday’s election.
The Chargers’ stadium measure failed, 57% to 43%, after all city precincts were counted. Nearly 169,000 residents voted against it, and 127,000 voted for it, with provisional ballots still to be counted.Under California election law, the measure needed two-thirds of voters to approve the measure because it’s a tax hike for a specific purpose. And, now, it appears likely that the tam will leave San Diego for Los Angles and share a stadium with the LA Rams, a team that run out of St. Louis because fans stopped funding the owner’s demands for more of the public’s money to fund expansion.
The NFL Is Becoming a Victim of GLEXIT
What is GLEXIT? The term is a take-off of the term BREXIT, Britain’s exit from the EU. It is also a term also associated with the term Calexit, which is California’s attempt to exit the United States. The term GLEXIT, is the populist notion that globalism is inherently exploitive and evil and the rising tide of Trump-inspired nationalism.
Make no mistake about it, the NFL is a globalist organization and it is just as marxist-socialist and exploitive as any country in the world.
The NFL Receives Special Favor From Congress
Nothing is infuriating the country more than special favor for the 1% and this is what, to a large extent, the NFL is all about. And along these lines, the NFL does not pay taxes.
I know you are wondering if you read the preceding statement correctly. in that the NFL does not pay any tax? That is correct!
Did you know that the NFL made $9 billion dollars last year? Did you know that the NFL is a tax-exempt corporation and paid no tax on their $9 billion dollars of profit? What is wrong with this picture? Between state and federal taxes, most small business owners pay 45% of their income in taxes while we watch Warren Buffet, David Rockefeller and the NFL pay no tax. And now, they want us to pay billions for the privilege of watching their teams play as the owners watch from their million dollar luxury suites?
The NFL or the TSA, What’s the Difference?
The NFL has become the new 4th Amendment-violating TSA as they presuppose everyone attending a football game is a terrorist and is subject to enhanced body searches.
Please remember, as I have reported before, this is the same NFL which is participating in the violation of our constitutional liberties through TSA-type searches. My question to all NFL fans, do you have such low self-esteem that you would subject yourself to this unwarranted humiliation to watch a game? What is wrong with you?
