Ah, its time for modern Bread and Circuses. Otherwise known as the start of the NFL season.
Although, here in modern times, its more just circuses. They can't give us 'bread'. That would be considered, well socialist. We can't be giving bread to people just because they are hungry. Of course not, feeding people is so anti-American that most cities are passing laws keeping people from doing this on their own.
So, we just get circuses. I guess they can sell expensive tickets to the circus. Millionaires become bigger millionaires by selling expensive tickets to their circus. And, by getting us poor plebes to put up our tax dollars to build them the biggest, grandest circus tents ever made.
But hey, that doesn't mean I can't enjoy the circus. After all, that's what they are there for. Its better than spending the night worrying about not having a job when the unemployment checks are a fading and distant memory. I guess I'm ready for some football!
