‘Thank you very little’

What we have here is an unholy convergence of people who are too lazy to golf, people who are too smart to spend their own money fleecing them, and people who are desperate to bring the Duke City a few jobs, even if they cost nearly $5 million of the public’s money and suck.

C’mon. We got golf out the wazoo for the chumps who enjoy spoiling a good walk. And everyone who likes to eat, drink and play games already does that, with their phones, in their cars. Our streets are their driving range. “Duck, hon’, here comes a GMC Titlist.”

This thing will follow the Beach Waterpark and the ART debacle into the Malodorous Dumpster of Bad Ideas and all the wrong people will make money. Ask any economist:

“Politicians dangle incentives because voters want them to. And voters want them to in large part because politicians say that incentives make a real difference. ‘The dirty big secret,’ said Greg LeRoy, the executive director of the group Good Jobs First, ‘is that they don’t.’ ”

    “Topgolf is a fast-growing operation that most everyone agrees would be an asset to Albuquerque” I always wonder if these things are so great and popular, WHY does the public need to cough up any dough? What about the power and wisdom of the free market? Will people ever wise up to the con of “socialize the risk, privatize the profits” that these sharks use over and over again? It would be cheaper and more efficient to just throw the public’s tax dollars out of the a__-end of a C130 over the city if the goal is to help the citizens instead of enrich the developers.
