  1. If you know the right people in the Democrat Party, you get to use the taxpayer as your own personal bank account.

    Obama(a Million Man March organizer and attendee) needs to come out and say "If you have a concert at the expense of the taxpayer, you didnt build that, someone else made that happen".

    "Mayor Nutter skipped an important beat in planning the star-studded Made in America music festival for this weekend.

    The two-day extravaganza on the Benjamin Franklin Parkway will attract as many as 50,000 people to the city. The featured line-up includes entertainers Jay-Z, Pearl Jam, Run-DMC, Jill Scott, Drake, and possibly a surprise appearance by Beyoncé.

    But how much will it cost this cash-strapped city to host such a spectacular event? There has been no indication whether the city will make or lose money on the venture. Philadelphia will likely be on the hook for an increased police presence and cleanup costs, at the least."
     
  2. Whoa! Warren Buffet and Jay z, who'd a thunk? (cashin in on the taxpayer)
     
  3. "Overall, city officials expect 50,000 paying fans each day for the bill curated by Jay-Z, whose real name is Shawn Carter. Musicians include Skrillex, Drake, Afrojack, Chris Cornell, Run-DMC and hometown favorite Jill Scott. time."

    Paying customers, maybe some profit for a City that can use the help.

    There is no indication whether the city will make or lose money? I will help on this. The event was put together by democrats--it is going to lose money. Count on it.
     
  5. Yeah, those stupid democrats don't make any money. Hollywood is full of poor people, One little quick search came up with a list of 40 pretty rich people.

    I can see just hating the other side, but why the need to just make up stuff? This is the time of the Google, easy to use, really not that hard to try to back up what you say.
