    Marketing Budget? Its still my tax dollars (as Mark)

    I keep hearing the defense that the monies going to NASCAR teams is part of the Pentagons marketing budget...as if that changes anything or makes it right. It is still MY taxpayer dollars being spent on SPORTS ENTERTAINMENT at a time when our society is crumbling under economic strain.
    The GOP is slashing funding for The National Weather Service and NOAA, Planned Parenthood, National Education Association, healthcare for women, etc. etc., all valuable needed services, yet think it logical to continue giving our tax dollars to NASCAR racing teams (I don't give a flip if its marketing or not).....its still my money!!! Come on people. Lets please get our priorities straight!!
