The AP published the following story about the concern that people maybe reselling tickets for the coronation of Lord Barry Obama. The story speculates that some tickets may go as high as $40,000 a piece.
Sen. Dianne Feinstein believes that this should be a crime. After all the tickets were given away through members of Congress at no charge to the taxpayer. May I ask what is wrong if there is a demand for these tickets that they should go to the highest bidder? If Dianne wants only those who can afford it to show up on coronation day, then she should give her tickets to the unemployed bums that put her in office. If she was feeling really charitable, she could drop her allotment of tickets off at the soup kitchen or maybe the methadone clinic.
Feinstein's attitude is a type and shadow of the incoming administration and a more paternalistic congress. In all reality, if people want to sell there tickets they should be able to. If they want to trade them, use them or destroy them they should. Why is it that after Congress relinquishes control of the taxpayers' tickets that they feel inclined to continue to control their dissemination?
In all reality, Feinstein and her socialist friends are most likely upset that they won't be able to collect taxes on the selling of any tickets. That must be the reason for all the fuss about the free exchange of these tickets.
