  TEJADA REMORSEFUL FOR LYING TO CONGRESS

TEJADA REMORSEFUL FOR LYING TO CONGRESSMiguel Tejada, shortstop for the Houston Astros, is being charged with perjury for lying to the Congress of his knowledge whether Rafael Palmeiro used performance enhancing drugs or not. But an official from the Justice Department filed a statement that defended Tejada, saying he should not face jail term for lying during a hearing in the House of Representatives. On March 26 will be receiving his sentence. Instead of incarceration, according to Jeffery Taylor, the baseball player should receive probation. Taylor is a US attorney in the District of Columbia.

According to Taylor, Tejada has expressed that he was remorseful and contrite for giving a false statement. The counsel said the baseball player is not likely to repeat his offense saying that he understood the gravity of what he did.

The charges against Tejada was not about his falsified statements for personally using steroids rather he was being charged for his discussions with Adam Piatt, another baseball player who was allegedly used steroids and human growth hormones. Piatt opposed Tejada’s claims saying that he bought PED’s for Tejada from Randomski.

  What do USA Taxpayers think about Steroid Investigations in congress?

steroids-in-baseballThere has been a lot of interest lately into finding out what the average mom and pop taxpayer thinks about steroid investigations in congress. Let’s face it, almost 8 years of ongoing investigations into who stuck a needle full of testosterone into Barry Bonds’ ass gets old even to the biggest patriot. Well, with the latest gloom and doom scenario in the USA economy, and people losing jobs left and right while losing their house and going bankrupt, people really started to pay attention to steroid probes in congress, but not in a positive way for sure!

Now, in case any of you think we are bias in favor of steroids (we are guessing the domain name isteroids .com gave it away), here is real people talking about real issues. This is from the opinions page of the Pocono Record (a Pennsylvania newspaper, very mainstream):

I find it funny that Congress is worried about Roger Clemens and others who take steroids.

Why don’t they bring these company CEOs in front of Congress?

Let them be accountable for this predatory lending practice that has been going on. Those who use steroids will only hurt themselves. These lenders have hurt millions of homeowners. Where are your priorities? Our Congress better wake up, now we have to bail them out.

As you can see the USA taxpayers want USA congress to investigate the economy and, of course, War in Iraq NOT investigate whether steroids are used in baseball!

Congress certainly gets sidetracked with things they have NO BUSINESS getting involved with. The only reason these lenders can get away with their predatory practices is because of the Federal Reserve and their flawed policies. They offered loans of new fiat money at extremely low rates of interest, which caused the housing “bubble”, which caused the market to inflate prices which unscrupulous bankers took full advantage of. Then, when everything crashes, they pump more of their fiat money, created out of thin air, backed by nothing except the “full faith and credit” of the US government – in other words, we the taxpayers – which only creates more inflation by diluting the number of dollars in circulation. It’s a vicious cycle which is bound to crash. Oh, excuse me, it already has. Please vote for Ron Paul. He is the only candidate with real common sense and the courage to do something about it, like abolishing the Fed and the IRS.

So what does the USA taxpayers want, more investigations into who stuck a needle with steroids into Roger Clemens’ bad shoulder when he was playing baseball OR investigations into the economy and war in Iraq? why not let the taxpayers and voters decide!

  Roger Clemens and Steroids – FBI Probe

Posted By
Pin it Share on Tumblr

clemens-steroids-baseballSteroid Nation recently brought up a great question. “How many governmental agencies does it take to unscrew a light bulb?” It seems now that congress has spent countless taxpayer dollars on useless steroid probes, they have forced the FBI and IRS to get involved. How exactly does Roger Clemens possibly lying about steroids warrant a tax audit? On top of this, it seems the FBI has been forced into dealing with this steroid issue. It’s evident that the FBI clearly doesn’t want anything to do with anabolic steroid probes, they have other things to worry about, like terrorism. However, our guess is that congress has pushed the FBI into dealing with anabolic steroids, rather then keeping on their regular track. We consider the FBI a very upstanding organization, with an amazing amount of dedicated individuals, so it is a shame to see them forced into a ludicrous investigation into whether Roger Clemens used steroids as a baseball star and then lied about it!

  Steroids in Hockey – NHL (why not NFL?)

Posted By
Pin it Share on Tumblr

hockey-steroidsIs hockey (NHL) the next target for congressional steroid probes? possible. It seems that a few representatives from NHL have been called into numerous meetings in political arenas to answer questions about possible anabolic steroids use as well as human growth hormone (HGH) use. Will this amount to new probes into Hockey/NHL instead of baseball steroid probes? we don’t know for sure. But, to be fair, the steroid probes should be pushing to target NFL players (if the true nature is to get to the bottom of steroid use) as NFL has the highest rate of Anabolic steroid and HGH use in any sport, just 2nd to bodybuilding. On any given day, you will find an NFL player (from any team) jacked up with at least 1000mgs of testosterone and at least 5-10 IUs of human growth hormone.  Why is NFL not on the target roster of steroid probes YET? simply because NFL is a big money maker, between the many football teams there is over $1,000,000,000 USD in revenue (that’s over 1 billion USD)

NHL Hockey and steroids discussion:

 ”The alleged benefits of steroid use — significant large muscle development – are not consistent with playing hockey at the highest level of the sport, and the resulting bulkiness attributable to steroid use simply is not the desired characteristic of skilled NHL players.”

NFL and why steroids will NEVER cause a problem for American Football:

 The National Football League is the most valuable and profitable team sport in the world. This year the average team is worth $733 million, a 17% increase over last year. Operating income (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization) for the 32 teams came in at $851 million on revenue of $5.3 billion, an operating margin of 16%.

  Media against Steroid Hearings in Congress

Posted By
Pin it Share on Tumblr

It seems even the media has been fed up with steroid hearings.  They are now against steroid hearings and probes in congress.

The Mitchell Report, conducted by former Sen. George Mitchell, was done at the request of Major League Baseball, not Congress. Whether or not Clemens is telling the truth or lying about his steroid use is a matter for Mitchell and the commissioner of baseball to fret over.

Yes, Congress does have a role in establishing the laws when it comes to drug use, but this hearing wasn’t focused on public policy. It was simply a high profile “he said, he said” confrontation involving one of the best and most popular baseball players in America.

  Steroids in the eyes of the USA Taxpayer

Posted By
Pin it Share on Tumblr

This is an open letter from an average mom and pop USA taxpayer, this is what he has to say about steroids and steroid investigations by congress (especially into baseball):

************************************************************************

As a taxpayer, I am completely flabbergasted at the audacity of the U.S. Congress and its investigation into steroid use in baseball and its threatened investigation of the NFL “Spygate” by posturing and pontification. Ye Gods!

Advertisement
With all the pressing problems facing our nation, literally too many to list in this space, are taxpaying citizens not outraged over the waste of funds trying to police professional sports?

What, after all, is important anymore? Is it just so easy to put time and effort into such a superficial, topical endeavor that it enables Congress to sweep aside the difficult tasks at hand like education, health care, tax reform, terrorism and national defense, and myriad other national concerns?

Is the theater and media exposure of the steroid investigation simply so appealing to these feckless impostors of statesmen who have interminably squatted in the halls of power that they have lost their sense of responsibility to the electorate?

I ask readers to remember such wasteful, irresponsible behavior the next time they go to the ballot box.

  Congress continues steroid investigation / waste of time

Posted By
Pin it Share on Tumblr

Congress, steroids, baseballCongress has again issued a subpoenas to a baseball player. Sounds like Barry Bonds’ legacy on steroids continues? The waster of taxpayer money continues!!! Now many of you might be very skeptical reading a blog about steroids on a steroids related site, but I assure you the intentions here are honorable. Let me show you the real truth about steroids in congress and your tax dollars:

Have you heard about H.R. 2565?

H.R. 2565 is a bill to reauthorize the Office of National Drug Control Policy Act and to establish minimum drug-testing standards for major professional sports leagues = steroids testing

do you know the COST for these steroids tests to the USA taxpayer?

CBO estimates that implementing H.R. 2565 would cost nearly $2.5 billion over the
2006-2010 period, assuming appropriation of the necessary amounts. (source: cbo.gov)

So you do the math, do YOU want to spend $2,500,000,000 of tax dollars on testing baseball players for steroids or should this money be spent on boosting the USA economy? why don’t you think that one over!

  USA National problems all solved, Congress now talks steroids ???

steroids baseball congressHaving finally fixed the failed war in Iraq, and with the USA economy at it’s “best” levels in years, Congress has decided to attend to the most important matter for the USA: which baseball players are lying about steroid use.

The great USA legislators have decided that the huge threats posed to the US national security by baseball players using steroids cannot be handle by one government branch. Thus, the FBI has launched a separate investigation into whether baseball players used steroids then lied about it!

Thank god that America is now SAFE from terrorists, so FBI can now focus on steroid use in baseball! Just a suggestion, let’s get the CIA involved so we can send the U2 spy plane to fly over baseball stadiums and monitor possible steroid use in the baseball players locker rooms.

  Congress Finally Acts On Steroids!

Posted By
Pin it Share on Tumblr

THIS IS ONE OF THE BEST ARTICLES I’VE EVER READ LOL!

Congress has taken a lot of heat lately for its invertebrate behavior, but on one issue Congress has stood tall, hit hard, and Rambo-ed up. As a citizen of this fine country, I can only say, “Thank you Congress, for protecting our nation in its hour of dire need.” My gratitude is not misplaced. Congress has made up for unconscionably supporting the Iraq War, approving judges who are political and religious fanatics for whom the Constitution may as well be handi-wipes, for performing unspeakable acts (figuratively speaking) with special interest lobbyists, for buying whole-heartedly into the myth of Homeland Security (both as a concept and a Department), and – in the case of the House of Representatives – passing the already infamous Radicalization “Thought Crime” Act (HR 1955).

Yet all is forgiven because Congress has inserted itself between we the people and the greatest threat to our well-being since Carrie Underwood. I am talking, of course, about its ongoing investigation of the steroid issue and its response to that tome that has now taken its place alongside “The Pentagon Papers” and Isaac Newton’s Principia Mathematica: “The Mitchell Report”.

Now I know that the honorable Congresspersons on the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee aren’t only investigating steroids. But they are making a pretty big deal of it and spending quite a bit of time pursuing such critical national issues as Miguel Tejada, Roger Clemens, and just when Bud Selig “knew”. Hopefully, as the probe continues, we will find out Barry Bonds’s hat size, how many needles went into how many butts, and whether Jose Canseco used steroids in writing his book.

Fortunately, we can clarify these and other related issues by an interview with a committee member who agreed to meet with me on one of the side streets near Fenway Park where I myself have on occasion purchased Red Sox tickets from entrepreneurial scalpers operating in the best capitalist tradition of the old Boston merchantmen.

As I sidled through the shadows cast by the now empty relic of recent World Series glory, I felt the same thrill that many an undercover operative must have experienced as they played spy versus spy in the Cold War strasse of Berlin. Perhaps in this very square of sidewalk a visiting Yankee had met his shady steroid connection and purchased the forbidden ambrosial pharmaceutical before a key game with the rival Crimson Hose! How many muscle-bound, totally ripped sultans of swat had committed their crimes against the Republic just out of reach of the friendly Kenmore Square cop on the beat? And here I was, about to snare an exclusive interview with Congressperson…aha, sorry, the interview was granted only on condition of anonymity!

BK: Congress Person (CP), tell me, where does this steroid problem stand in terms of Congress’s top priorities? Is this your most important investigation?

CP: Well Bart, after steroids, we’ll be investigating protein levels in power bars, and then, if the public demands, we’re going to find out just how many NBA players were stretched by their parents so they’d gain an unfair advantage over other kids on their school teams.

BK: Are you aware of all the steps being taken to disenfranchise voters in the coming presidential election?

CP: I believe, and Bart, you can take this to the bank – don’t forget to deposit it in my campaign chest – that any voter whose name is in any way linked with steroids does not deserve to exercise his – or her – constitutional right to vote.

BK: What about voters who are poor, black, or elderly? Should they be forced to stand on line for hours to vote because old and malfunctioning voting machines have been purposely placed in their precincts? What about people with the same name as convicted felons – should they have to prove they are not that person before they can vote. Should anyone without a national I.D. be denied the exercise of their most important right as citizens? And what the hell is a national I.D. card?

CP: I’m not sure, but I’ll trade you one for a Barry Bonds rookie card and two Roger Clemens from his alleged steroid years in Toronto. Won Cy Young awards both years! And a baseball Beanie Baby doll to be named later.

BK: Let’s move on. This may just be me, but I seem to be hearing a lot more noise from Congress about steroids in baseball than I have about the widespread corruption in our occupation of Iraq.

CP: We have it on the best authority that al Qaeda operatives infiltrating Iraq are in fact pumped up on the very same hormones that were responsible for at least 647 documented homeruns hit between 1997 and 2004.

BK: Well, actually I was referring to the billions of dollars assigned to construction projects in Iraq that have just disappeared, the armory’s worth of missing weaponry, the money trail that disappears once it enters Halliburton’s coffers, the relationship of Blackwater to the Bush administration, the killing and rape and torture of untold numbers of Iraqis, and sexual violence committed against female American soldiers by male comrades. Just for starters.

CP: Bart, you seem like a nice guy. Ever play ball?

BK: Sure, I…

CP: Ever use steroids?

BK: No, but you’re not investigating me. I was asking about Iraq.

CP: Do you enjoy gladiator movies?

BK: They’re usually a little short on plot and character for my taste.

CP: My point exactly! Gladiators used to bulk up on steroids. Now if the terrorists use them, they’ll be that much tougher to get rid of! Bovine growth hormone is no different than a weapon of mass destruction.

BK: Is that why Congress is investigating Manuel Tejada and Roger Clemens? Aren’t their personal cases a matter for the courts and major league baseball? I mean, have you noticed that the economy is tanking and that other than selling off American banks to foreign investors, Congress and the President aren’t doing that much about it?

CP: What about mortgage relief?

BK: Too little too late but anything’s appreciated I suppose. What about New Orleans? Has Congress done anything to help people return to their homes? Is it true the powers that be do not want persons of color back in the city? What about schools? Health facilities? Their homes? Does it make sense to destroy city after city in Iraq and then appropriate hundreds of billions of dollars to rebuild them – not that they’re really getting rebuilt – while we ignore the destruction of one of America’s own great cities?

CP: Let me say, Bart, I am a strong supporter of the New Orleans Saints. And I almost wish – now don’t quote me on this, this is totally off the record – that Reggie Bush had taken steroids. Might have gotten more yardage out of him this year. I missed the spread three times because of that fella.

BK: Yes, but you see, CongressPerson, I think the public would really rather you looked into something substantive, like the distribution of Pentagon weapons to police forces around the country or the fixing of oil prices. Or the widespread corruption that shrieks from every pore of this odious administration. At least give it as much attention as you gave the stain on Monica’s blue dress.

CP: Great song, that “Devil With a Blue Dress”.

BK: Mitch Ryder and the Detroit Wheels.

CP: I love the Motor City. Notice that Romney won Michigan? Wonder if he takes steroids? I’ll ask Selig when I get him on the stand. Hey Bart, do you know that as a member of Congress I get the best health care available in America free for life – and my little dog too! Haha, not really Toto, but my whole family as well.

BK: Hmm, CP, can I ask you about health care?

CP: No single payer plans. We’re not a bunch of socialists here. Now I’ve got to go bail out a few more banks. Those fellas are just drunk on deregulation. Pumping cash through their systems like they’re steroids. After we give ‘em a few billion, we’ll be ready to go after Knoblauch and Pettite. Then you’ll really see Congress in action.

BK: I’m starting to think I’d rather see Congress inaction than in action.

The Green Monster loomed above as I trudged through shin-deep snow to my favorite watering hole. High overhead the Coke bottles shone in the moonlight and the Citgo sign bestowed its enigmatic blessings upon us all. I heard the flag flapping overhead and raised my eyes to gaze at Old Glory. WWJD, I thought. What would Jefferson do in the face of the steroid threat? Would Daniel Webster join Senators Charles Schumer and Chuck Grassley in grandstanding as they clamored for laws about steroids and athletes while war raged, the economy trembled, and New Orleans lay buried by neglect? Hmm, the same Schumer who folded on so many issues these past few years. But hell, if Congress gets to the bottom of Barry Bonds’s hat size, maybe it’ll be worth it after all.
