NFL, Super Bowl success: “Socialism” triumphs again

Many of you have probably seen this little video from a while back from the almost always funny and provocative Bill Maher, but it seems worth promoting again this morning in the aftermath of last night’s orgy of economic success/excess. Maher’s insightful point is one that I and a lot of other progressive sports fans have made over the years.

(And, as last night’s game demonstrated, the rich (i.e. the New York Giants) can still fare extremely well — even in a collectivist enterprise like the NFL).

    I’ve never found Bill Maher to be very funny nor as witty as he thinks he is. My guess is he will die as a lonely and cynical old man still pondering his own existence and still wondering why people never took him very seriously.

    It’s cool that all those greedy billionaires can play nice without the gummit telling them to.
