Why Silly Season Is So Much Fun

Filed under: The Disciple Blogs — Disciple of INDYCAR @ 12:22 pm

There are a number of reasons why silly season is so much fun on so many levels. One of the popular ADD-short attention span-snippet ‘news’ sites, TMZ, featured a blip yesterday that indicates dancing Helio is in trouble with Uncle Sam for allegedly not paying taxes on more than 5 million bucks. Evidently there is a 6-count federal indictment in Miami. His somewhat good looking sister is included as well. That will be an interesting case if there is any merit. He could get a few years in the slammer if found guilty. Perhaps his fence climbing talents will serve him well as he attempts to avoid the type of deviant prison behavior that befalls slightly built pretty boys. Hopefully it will not come to that.

 

Speaking of lawsuits, Paul Tracy has apparently sued ‘uncle’ Gerald Forsythe for the screwing he took at hands of Forsythe. My thought is that you reap what you sow. Tracy is talented, but he is now old. Forsythe is widely regarded as a whimsical loose cannon. His anti-Tony George stance during the cart boycott made him a cartoon character. It does not appear he is becoming any less laughably irascible. If Helio goes to jail perhaps he could appoint ‘uncle’ Gerald as his surrogate. Or Tracy.

 

Just when you think this kind of nonsense cannot get any more stupid we get word that loading pork into important legislation, in this case the socialistic financial bailout of criminals, is alive and well. Evidently a federal tax credit of $140 Million is being given to certain ‘motorsports racing track facilities’ of a certain size and construction date. It sounds to me like the France family needs money from taxpayers uninterested in attending their boring races. The revised bailout legislation also contains provisions for a manufacturer of wooden bow and arrow sets for kids. Retirement in Costa Rica or some other haven outside the lunatic state to which this once great country has devolved is getting more attractive all the time.

 

 

The government no longer works and should be dissolved immediately.

 

Just my humble opinion. At least we have racing for entertainment for now.

    Hopefully, the truth will be made known in Helio’s case.
