The Political Salary Cap
by Regis Boff
The NBA salary cap is the only other minimum wage scheme in the American workplace. The other, of course, is that prize bull of the Democrat party that gets marched out every so often to certify they are the party that sides with hamburger flippers. This mighty increase gets approved quickly as Republicans assume that to argue might lose them the pivotal beef flipper swing vote.
The NBA has the cap to protect the Democrats. Oops! Pardon me, the owners, because the cap shields their profits. No one pays to see the owners play basketball so without the players busily trying to increase the cap they might decide to throw the owners out.
Mind you, this is all too clever for any flipper understand. They should just be grateful to the party and begin building a new life around their salary bonanza.
