I read recently that the U.S. Postal Service spent $41 million sponsoring Lance Armstrong and the U.S. cycling team. What was the rationale of our government in spending such a sum on a crew of dopey bikesters?
One out of six children in this country go hungry through no fault of their own. The country’s infrastructure is crumbling. The list goes on of projects in need of doing. Who was in charge of approving such a boondoggle? And those funds were squandered in Europe, not this country.
I really do not mind paying taxes, but I am infuriated that the money goes to such projects, plus senseless wars, plus bailouts to banksters and corporate welfare. Enough! Where are the wise men and women, when we need them?
