|Our Tax Dollars at Work!|
(For background information see our article, "Pentagon Funds NASCAR.....", dated February 15, 2011.)
YES! It's so. The U.S. Military has been funding NASCAR for a number of years now to the engine roar of about $50 million a year.
The above picture of the 14-car crash early in the race (Hendricks Motorsports had a bad day) shows not only how taxpayers dollars are spent by the U.S. Military, but is also metaphoric to how other taxpayer dollars may be spent by our government in other areas.
Hey! We like NASCAR! We just don't believe taxpayer dollars should be paying for it.
The winner was a Justin Beiber contemporary. Trevor Bayne, barely 20 years old, is this years DAYTONA 500 champion driver.
Congratulations Trevor! Your 'win' was impressive. And Hannah Montana thought so too!
