Arlington makes us laugh

Snarky GoFundMe campaign has raised $5 of its $500 million goal for new Texas Rangers stadium.

From the MLB Texas Rangers Roof GoFundMe page (spelling left uncorrected)....

A citizen of Arlington, TX. Trying to raise money for the Texas Rangers' owners.  The money will build a new stadium with a ROOF because according to them it's become TOO hot to play baseball in Texas.  Funds are needed by Novemeber 1, 2016. The citizens of Arlington would be very greatful if you would help pay for this.  We, the citizens, have been paying and additional 1/2 % sales tax for 22 years building stadiums for the Rangers and the Cowboys.  We are tired of footing the bill!  Our additional tax will be removed in a few years as long as we don't build yet ANOTHER stadium.  The citizens would then be able to save roughly $200 to $500 a year PER citizen (rough estimate) if we did not have to pay this additional tax which we have been paying for 22 years.  It's time for the citizens to get a break!

I, and most of my fellow citizens, would deeply appreciate your assistance in this matter.

Thank you for considering a donation!
Help spread the word!
