    I think we need to cut everywhere. We have to leave NPR and PBS alone according to Democrats. We have to let women write off breast-pumps. We have to keep all of the entitlements that keep Democrats in office, but we can't keep anything that helps defend this nation.

    What is the primary purpose of the government?

    Can anyone remember what that is?

    Well, this is the purpose:

    Personally, I think Obama is leading us into anarchy, but that's in another thread.

    Seems that being patriotic isn't cool. Being politically correct and assuring diversity, working for social justice, and collective salvation is the goal. Whatever the Democrats want is a priority while what this country wants takes a back seat.

    I'm still trying to figure out how putting decals on NASCAR race cars cost $100 million.

    Why don't we kick the UN off of US soil and stop paying them. How about ending our support of Hamas. Cut off all of the cash going to unions like the SEIU and ACORN.

    If NPR and PBS are worth watching they'll survive by selling ads. Why are we propping them up?

    So the Dems want to piss all over NASCAR and the military. Could it be because they think NASCAR fans are just a bunch of Red-Neck Tea Party members, and the military is just a bunch of mindless warmongers that just want to kill?

    I think so.

    Let's turn NASCAR into another Muslim outreach program like NASA has become. That should make them happy.

    Until NASCAR has a guaranteed crash night and PBS and NPR adopt the nude weather report I fully support defunding them all.

    NASCAR to me is just burning gas. They have some really cool jackets though.

    I actually went to a couple of races in North Carolina when I was still in the service. Too many damn caution flags. Stop. Start. Stop. Start. Ugh.

    But the crowd has awesome people watching opportunities and when the cars are actually racing it's fun to watch ... so going live is fun. Watching on TV ... ZZZZZZZzzzzzzzz

    The NASCAR sponsorships come out of the Militarys' advertising budget. The Money the government gives to NPR is for operating costs.

    Two different things entirely.

    Wouldn't mind getting into some of the former's operating costs either, but for the purpose of this discussion, nuke 'em both.
