    Armstrong Used Drugs -Did Taxpayer Dollars Fund It?

    USADA report "proves" Armstrong used drugs - Yahoo! News

    "The evidence shows beyond any doubt that the US Postal Service Pro Cycling Team ran the most sophisticated, professionalized and successful doping program that sport has ever seen," USADA said in a statement from chief executive Travis Tygart.

    "The evidence also includes direct documentary evidence including financial payments, emails, scientific data and laboratory test results that further prove the use, possession and distribution of performance enhancing drugs by Lance Armstrong and confirm the disappointing truth about the deceptive activities of the USPS Team, a team that received tens of millions of American taxpayer dollars in funding."

    "a team that received tens of millions of American taxpayer dollars in funding"

    Why exactly are taxpayer dollars going to a bicycling team?

    It's things like this that baffle me beyond belief. Why do taxpayer dollars go to bicycle teams, puppet shows, or painting a giant salmon on a 747? We're not sure, all we know is that we need more taxes.

    The USPS sponsored the team.

    Why? Well, why not? If they don't spend every dime they can't ask for more next year.

    He lost a testicle. How much more punishment can one suffer than that?

    Big Bird should do more riding and less watching. A little puffy around the waistline.

    The post office is primarily self-funded. The only taxpayer funded mail service is for overseas ballot mailing and some sort of disability-related mail service.

    So no, taxpayers did not fund it.

    This is the second post in a minute-and-a-half that makes absolutely no sense to me. WTF does the post office have to do with this thread??

    “No men are anywhere, and I’m allowed to go in, because I’m the owner of the pageant and therefore I’m inspecting it,” Trump said... “‘Is everyone OK’? You know, they’re standing there with no clothes. ‘Is everybody OK?’ And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.”

    Probably trying to promote their FedEx-UPS type services before they abandoned next-day delivery.
