    And all the politicians who support SOPA and PIPA are wondering why online piracy exists....
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    Taxpayers pay for the new stadium. Fans pay high ticket prices to support multimillion dollar contract for players.
    I have never supported the idea of public funded stadiums. I have even supported the effort to keep taxes low for everyone, including the rich. I now change my mind. Sports that use tax dollars to build facilites should have the players/coaches/owners taxed at an effective rate so income is no more than $250K.

    My friends from Minnesota are divided. Those in the Twin Cities are okay with still paying a boatload in taxes for the Twins stadium, others are not. The hypothetical Vikings Stadium would divide them even more in support (one expressed his happiness so far). Those who are further away from the stadium are pissed off as all hell they are putting up with the taxes for the Twins stadium alone.
