Response to Grassy Knoll (Original post)

60. Ah, Jon, you beady-eyed asstrollop . . .

Jordan didn't pay the people coming to see his games; the people bought the merch, sold out the UC and made the people who signed Jordan's checks richer. Jordan was a product; a highly talented one, but still a product and one that was gained by luck of the draw (or an astronomically bad decision by Portland, whichever). The United Center would have still had a staff whether Jordan came to Chi-Town or not. The Bulls still would have had an organization whether Jordan came to town or not.

The CEOs only helped the other executives. Their wealth didn't trickle down to the masses. That was never their intent. There's no sense of noblesse oblige here. Their only intent was to get cheaper and cheaper highly-educated labor and pocket/bonus out the savings.

Trickle Down is a FARCE. Always has been, always will be. Jon Kyl sucks at governing, sucks at humanity and SUPER sucks at analogies.
