$25,000 fine for an opinion; more conditioning?Submitted by PatriotsUnderGod on Sun, 03/10/2013 - 16:02
Just as military personnel can no longer speak critically of any commander in chief, so a NASCAR driver can't render an opinion about performance of the equipment he is provided...
We know our nation is only a few years from having biblical preaching against sin being lawfully deemed hate speech....(right behind Canada)...it just seems to me that we're being conditioned that if our speech offends anyone or any group, some civil magistrate will be lawfully ordered to PUNISH that act!
Within the context of this PRIVATE auto racing domain, NASCAR and their new "gen 6" car; I will say I am watching the Las Vegas race right now,.and what I am observing that 15% of the race complete, and 25% of the field is already a lap down. Denny Hamlin might have been right!
I wouldn't pay the fine either, he might get suspended if he doesn't; but what's $25,000 to a guy being paid .... ??? $$$
