The government of Spain levied a 21 percent tax on theater tickets. The owner of a playhouse feared this ridiculous increase would kill his business, so he outsmarted the bureauweenies.

Hollywood Reporter – Two months after Spain’s sales tax hike bumped the rate on theater admissions from 8 percent to 21 percent, theater director Quim Marce came up with an idea for how to dodge the initiative by handing out one free ticket for his theater’s opening night show.

Purchase one very expensive carrot, taxed at 8%, and see a play for free.

    The central government raised the sales tax from a standard 18 percent to 21 percent…As a result, Spanish retail sales fell at the sharpest pace since 2006, with a 10.9 percent plunge in September compared with the year-ago period.

    But there’s no corelation between higher taxes and a bad economy!

    There’s an article in today’s WSJ about Spain’s ‘lost generation.’ Well educated twenty and thirty somethings can’t find work in Spain because of what the socialists did to the Spanish economy. They completely destroyed it.

    Everything the socialists did to Spain are what Obama is doing to us.

    Speaking of playhouses.

    The ISO, indianapolis symphony orchestra, was in a union dispute over wages and threatened a strike, they bargained for a delay until february.

    The condition was the additional 5 million salary increase be raised through private donations.
    Now these fucks are running commmercials about the deadline is fastly approaching and wanting people to send in $100 to meet the 5 million or they may go on strke…..Bwahahahahaaha, stupid liberal union progs…..break my heart, go on strike and join your union brethren at Hostess. Who the hell do these ignorant greedy fucks think they are? Asking for $100 from common people to meet their 5 million dollar increase.

    Raise the ticket prices to meet these greedy bandplayers salaries and when they priced themselves out of a job via no one wanting to pay to see them, sit back and once more laugh at the unions.
