    Its great isn't it? Congress going after a bunch of athletes who are pumping steroids, questioning the NFL on filmgate. I feel like I'm living in Alice in Wonderland.

    I hear you.

    I thought this was what the MLB's job was.

    Since when is a private sport the legal business of the Federal Government?

    Where does stupidity fit in?

    I wonder if they really think their tuff action on sports will take our minds off all the other shit they are ignoring?

    We the voters are to blame for the state of this country because enough of us weren't paying close enough attention. Do you write letters to your representatives? Did you complain to the education authorities when history and the constitution were scaled back in school? Did you vote for the real candidate of your choice or did you capitulate and vote for the lesser of two evils in your state's primary this year, thus insuring that evil would win? All these affect our country's condition. It takes true grit to save one's country.

    This year there will be the biggest number of seats in both houses of congress at stake for awhile, so if you don't like your current congressperson or senator, vote him/her out if the opposition is at least half-way decent and holds your views. Research them, because one can find more voting records and information on a candidate than ever before. Don't listen to what others say about a candidate, except as a starting point in researching them.

    No shit. :clap2:

    beem asking the same questions. Since when is it Congress's business to stick its nose into professional sports.

    Congress makes the laws and the President signs them into law. It is up to Federal and local law enforcement to investigate and enforce the laws. If they're guilty, burn 'em and be done with it. If not, let them go. Either way, this is a law enforcement issue and NOT a Congressional one.
