Baseball Steroids and Senator John McCain

This dude is bucking for the oval office..its as plain as the nose on his face..he keeps his mug in front of the press by holding STUPID hearings on something which congress has no business attempting to regulate. Yes, the league should have harsher penalties..no, its not up to the government to waste MY and YOUR tax dollars on this issue..McCain sponsored the Clean Sports Act, a companion to the House bill introduced by Government Reform Chairman Tom Davis, R-Va. Sen. Jim Bunning, a Kentucky Republican and former pitcher elected to baseball's Hall of Fame in 1996, sponsored the Professional Sports and Integrity Act. Both Senate bills call for a two-year suspension the first time an athlete fails a drug test and a lifetime ban after a second failed test. The four leagues whose officials appeared Wednesday have less strict penalties, though all have toughened or proposed toughening their programs in recent months - in some cases, right before or after congressional hearings on the subject.

I just do not see the point of badgering the commish's of all Pro sports. Teams are owned privately AND do NOT recieve ANY government funds or subsidies. The government has enough to do and spend money on without pulling sports into the mix. I will never vote for John McCain based on his bullshit on this subject. The man is a drama queen of the highest order and evidently doesn't get enough press to warrant a run at the Presidency..so he holds worthless hearings to get his 15 minutes of fame..fucking jackass extraordinaire.

Well said. I'd never vote for the guy for other reasons. There's actually nothing I like about him. He's also one of the most heavily anti-gun people in Washington too.
