For this WTFHH moment.
Can some-one please explain to me why the Senate version of the bailout plan has a giant chunk o' money going to automobile race tracks, oh excuse me, so sorry, motorsports racetrack properties?
Our economy is circling the drain. Part of the problem is sky-rocketing GASOLINE and DESIEL costs.
And the Senate thinks this is a good time to tack on a couple million (NBC this morning had a graphic of 125 million, but I can't find it on-line) for some idiots to clear cut land, pour concrete over it and have people come to watch stupid cars drive around in circles at high speeds, burning through thousands and thousands of gallons of fuel while spewing noxious pollutants into the air.
Think about that NASCAR junkies next time you bitch at the pump. That your favorite driver blows more in one race that you probably use all year.
Auto racing is as stupid and as pointless as boxing.
Thor sez: About time, crazy human.
The new toy.
