      St Paul, MN

The Minnesota Vikings, a privately-owned monopoly sports business worth $800 million, want the taxpayers of Minnesota to build an unnecessary $1.1 billion-dollar stadium and to give principal Vikings owner Zygi Wilf unprecedented development and revenue rights at a time when state services are being cut, taxes are rising and more budget deficits loom ahead. Stop the insanity! Just Say No to Wilfare!

      Ponying up hundreds of millions in direct construction subsidies and tax abatements to a billionaire while the state finances circle the drain is obscene. And yet family newspapers across the state have given such favorable talk-dirty front-page treatment, as if millions of people's day-to-day lives mattered less than eight Sundays a year.

      Billionaires don't need free government projects.

      Sign this one, too!

      Especially NOT in Arden Hills (should be in the central cities in this day and age, on transit lines) and especially NOT with a broad-based sales tax which would hurt the poor and working class. If it has to be publicly subsidized, do it with user fees for football fans.

      Sports in America went over the sanity cliff a long time ago. This is just another example of our grotesquely misplaced priorities.

      I am not a professional sports fan and prefer that my taxes go to help those who need it.
