Heading to NASCAR anytime soon, maybe you should consider getting your shoots. At least our government thinks you should. Homeland security has informed there aids that before they head to the races – to do a study on large crowds and terrorist readiness, they have been instructed that they need to get shots for hepatitis A and B,” as well as tetanus, diphtheria, seasonal influenza.” WOW
Now, when I read this, at first, I thought they were talking about Guantonamo Bay OR Washington, DC the original home of the sickness that plagues us Americans. But no, a NASCAR race. If you have ever been to a race, you will know that NASCAR packs in a crowd of all sorts of people. No one can pack the seats of stadium like NASCAR. Not even Joel Osteen.
Now, I have been to many races and I can tell you that they may have a litter problem but disease, hmmm…Not possible. There is so much booze there that a germ could not live. I grew up with this segment of the population and the dirt under their fingers is what built this country. These are the hard working blue collars that don’t consider WORK to be a four-letter word. They work 9-5 or longer and all they want is for their government to keep feeding them the hopes of Mom, apple pie and an American car.
There is a BIG difference in a stain and dirt, oil and hard work has never come out of your fibers, even Washington knows that one, well at least the OIL parts. Cars are a way of life for folks like us. Mainly on the count of, we are always fixing ours. I have had more 500-dollar cars then there local used car lot and we consider it a sin to call an auto service for a flat tire. Show me one NASCAR fan that cant change an alternator or a water pump and I will change it for you.
If you want to see the reaction of a crowd at a NASCAR race for the purposes of terrorist readiness, you just need to do one thing, cancel a race and they will rise up like the Alamo. OR just go on calling them dirty, they will spit shin you and hang you out to dry. One thing that strikes me as odd is, if you were a terrorist and you wanted to target a group of people why would you hit folks that HUNT, carry guns, drive 4 wheel drive trucks, and thinks that WWF is conflict resolution.
Washington, stop sending your aids to do your dirty work, get out among the people and see what they do and talk to them and LISTEN. After all, you pay 100’s of millions of dollars to get our attention and we have to hear you tell us how we should… Eat, Live and SHOWER. Come get a little dirt under your nails it might look good and honest on TV.
Please don’t let this misunderstanding you have become an epidemic. Find a cure before you separate us anymore, as we say:
Git R Done folks, before you get a case of the Red White and Blues.
