Looks like unfettered capitalism is working exactly as it’s supposed to in Texas.
Texas billionaire Jerry Jones is, of course, best known for somehow making me hate the Dallas Cowboys even more than I used to (in case you’re not a football fan, he owns the team), but in the past few days he’s morphed from shitty NFL owner into a straight up old-timey robber baron.
It’s not enough that Jones somehow hoodwinked local taxpayers into paying for the stadium his team plays in; now he’s gouging them senseless as they face one of the biggest crises they’ve encountered in decades.
