Giving loans does not give anyone the right to interfere with commerce. That's just a moronic statement. When you agree to lend money, you agree to terms. If you don't agree to terms, you don't lend. Period. When you cut the check, you expect both parties to honor the terms. That's how lending works. Your bank cannot tell you "oh we lend you money for your car but now we want you to wear a green shirt to work because our new CEO is Irish and since we lent you money, we'd appreciate it if you showed him your support". No. That doesn't happen and you're a moron for even suggesting it.
LOL, and you call my statement moronic. You're comparing a private bank giving out a car loan to an individual, to the government (a public entity) loaning tax dollars (taken from the public unwillingly) to a city government (another public entity) so they can build a stadium to benefit a mostly private business (the NFL), who can build the stadium themselves with their own money or by raising the funds privately. Really? You don't see the difference in those two things? The money that bank is giving out for that car loan is from others who've put money into that bank willingly. If I know my bank is giving out loans for people to buy German cars and I hate German cars, I can take my money out of that bank and put it into another bank or CU. I have that option. But tax payer money used to partly build a NFL stadium are from people who have had their money taken from them unwillingly. In this instance if you are a person (like myself) who pays taxes to the federal gov't who thinks the Redskins should change their name and the gov't gives the city of Landover, Maryland X amount of tax dollars to upgrade or build a new stadium, you have no choice but to help fund that stadium after Snyder gets those funds. I can't take my tax dollars and give them to another U.S. federal government if I don't like who this gov't is giving them to. So in this case I can't take my tax dollars to another federal government if I don't like terms they and Dan Snyder agree to. I don't have a choice, unlike where I choose to bank at.
My only option as a tax payer is to complain to the people who make the tax laws (congress) to change that. Because congress has influence. Kind of like a group of people who don't like the Redskins name complaining to congress to push for the changing of that name. Again because congress has influence (they help fund NFL stadiums).
Do you understand the difference now, or did that go over your head too?
