Should You Study Engineering and Build Things, Anesthesiology and Put People To Sleep, or How to Hit a Ball With a Stick?

Top engineering salaries:  100 – 150k

Typical contracting rate: 60/hr  = 85,000/yr

vs. Anesthesiology

In the United States, an anesthesiologist can expect to earn on average about $343,000 each year and this can go up to about $425,000

 

vs. …. hitting balls with sticks 20-40,000,000.00 a year

 

Why is this happening? For one, taxpayers pay for the billion dollar stadiums. This is now money that can be used for player salaries. If we the taxpayers were not constantly paying for massive billion dollar stadiums, the players would earn much less.

Why do the rich invest in sports teams? Because its a tax writeoff on the losses, yet builds value as a entity.

Steinbrenner ran the Yankees at a 7 million a year net operating loss, a tax writeoff, while investing heavily in YES network. The YES network, 33% owned by Steinbrenner is valued at 3 Billion dollars and the Yankees has increased in value from 832 million to 1.5 billion.

Meanwhile, software engineers are told they are UNABLE to work for themselves according to IRS rules, and must give 30-50% of their contract income to Indian “recruiters”.

Does the government have an agenda of promoting a nation lazy and stupid and sports oriented? You betcha!
