[In an interview with the New York Times,] Levine actually tries to argue that Yankee Stadium is like some mom and pop shop, built with the elbow grease of businessmen like himself as opposed to the dollars of taxpayers ...These delusional assholes like Levine, with their hands so deep into taxpayers' pockets, trying to convince us they are grabbing money they inherently deserve, make it so easy to hate them.
Levine goes on to argue that other public assistance to the Yankees — the building of a train station, the granting them public parkland to build Yankee Stadium and the subsequent construction of another park to replace it — are all things that are good for the public. ...
