Both here and in England tax payers foot the bill for individuals (the Royal Family) and organizations (the NFL) that by no stretch of the imagination deserve or qualify to be subsidized by tax payers.

The Royals need to stop spending so much money, English officials warn, as Queen Elizabeth’s savings plunge from $58 million to $1.6 million. Buckingham Palace and Windsor Castle are falling apart, with ancient boilers costing $1.2 million each year.

Calling the NFL the “most profitable sports league in the world” -- and pointing to top officers who are paid tens of millions of dollars a year -- the petition says the NFL “should not be able to hide under a nonprofit status in order to avoid paying federal taxes.”

Politicians rant about spending too much on programs like unemployment or food stamps while at the same time turn a blind eye towards these mega-rip-offs.
