Son of billionaire blasts rich elites

John Angelos whose two achievements in life are being born to billionaire asbestos and tobacco lawyer Peter Angelos and negotiating nearly $70 million in corporate welfare from Florida and Sarasota County used the Baltimore riots as an excuse to blast "an American political elite have [has] shipped middle class and working class jobs away from Baltimore."

Before buying the Orioles, Daddy was a Democratic member of Baltimore City Council.

From Sonny:
Brett, speaking only for myself, I agree with your point that the principle of peaceful, non-violent protest and the observance of the rule of law is of utmost importance in any society. MLK, Gandhi, Mandela, and all great opposition leaders throughout history have always preached this precept. Further, it is critical that in any democracy investigation must be completed and due process must be honored before any government or police members are judged responsible.
That said, my greater source of personal concern, outrage and sympathy beyond this particular case is focused neither upon one night’s property damage nor upon the acts, but is focused rather upon the past four-decade period during which an American political elite have shipped middle class and working class jobs away from Baltimore and cities and towns around the U.S. to third-world dictatorships like China and others, plunged tens of millions of good hard-working Americans into economic devastation, and then followed that action around the nation by diminishing every American’s civil rights protections in order to control an unfairly impoverished population living under an ever-declining standard of living and suffering at the butt end of an ever-more militarized and aggressive surveillance state.
The innocent working families of all backgrounds whose lives and dreams have been cut short by excessive violence, surveillance, and other abuses of the Bill of Rights by government pay the true price, an ultimate price, and one that far exceeds the importance of any kids’ game played tonight, or ever, at Camden Yards. We need to keep in mind people are suffering and dying around the U.S., and while we are thankful no one was injured at Camden Yards, there is a far bigger picture for poor Americans in Baltimore and everywhere who don’t have jobs and are losing economic civil and legal rights, and this makes inconvenience at a ball game irrelevant in light of the needless suffering government is inflicting upon ordinary Americans.
Yep.

That kids game, as he called it, is part of a multi-billion dollar industry that collects taxes from government, rather than pay taxes.

The Orioles threatened to leave Baltimore in the 1980 unless the city and state built it a $110 million palace called Camden Yards, which is an untaxed building gifted to the Orioles free.

Sonny's contribution is getting nearly $70 million to move spring training to Sarasota, Florida.

Button it, boy. You just beclowned yourself.

    The Ringling Bros. Circus Museum calls Sarasota home, too. Perhaps Angelos was just bringing the Orioles closer to his comfort zone.

  2. He's part of the problem, not part of the solution.

  4. Yes, businesses have an obligation to keep their assets where they can be looted or burned at the drop of a thug.
