My Inaugural Blog - Congressional Steroids

I have read blogs and replied to many blogs, but this is my first to generate.

Let me first start off by writing about the waste of our tax dollars in action with the Congressional Meeting on Steriod use. This is entertainment, spend my money on finding a way to fix Social Security, our educational system, finding World Peace, term limits, or ethics reform. But the last place I want Government is in my sports. You already keep my TV under wraps, I would like to see a boob on the tube from time to time. Watching a baseball game on TV is laborous enough, don't take away the juice.

Seriously, I don't condone the use of banned drugs; but I want my elected officials taking care of the business that they were elected to handle. Let the leagues handle their own business and if they won't, then tax them to death. But, having these committee meetings is just a way to get press; not a d*mn thing productive will get done with Congress involved.

Look at the pandora's box that has already been opened, we have Al Sharpton calling for the termination of a Golf commentator for a dumb remark that had no ill intent. Our lives are full of sh*t already, we don't need Government or wanna be Government officals involved in Sports Entertainment. Keep on pretending to want to solve the ills of society and collecting a check for doing..............................
...................Not a d*mn thing and stay out of our Sports.

That was refreshing and theraputic. I think I am going to like blogging.

PETA is too worried about making sure that Michael Vick doesn't get to eat meat in Prison.


Now that's funny!

And Al Gore just claimed to have invented Satellite TV.

Al is also doing another movie about this. Maybe he can win an Oscar to put next to "The Nobel Peace Prize" he swindled out of the liberal morons of the world for the last flick. He couldn't get a Polor Bear to sink so he got a robot to do it and you win the Peace Prize. Are you kidding me? This is a joke right? Where's PETA when you need them?

I just heard that John Kerry changed his mind on the MLB deal. And Al Gore just claimed to have invented Satellite TV.

Just like Kerry and other elected officials threatening to get involved in having CBS/NBC air the Patriots-Giants game that was originally supposed to air only on the NFL network.  What a waste of time and money.

I hate Kerry to no end but the one thing in the world he has done that I like is to pressure sports to be avalible on different cable/satalite options. I used to have it when I had comcast but MLB cut a deal with DirecTV. On March 6, 2007, DirecTV signed a new seven-year carriage contract with the MLB. At first, it was to be an exclusive deal worth $700 million. However, as a result of viewer complaints and antitrust concerns - voiced by, among others, Mass. Senator John Kerry - MLB agreed to offer the package for renewal by cable systems and Dish Network. There it is. He has done something good in my book. OK I guess I am just a seamhead...

There was a vacuum left when Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was taken away from us and unfortunately there wasn't a person with the same heart of caring for all of humanity to take over the movement. He was concerned for all people. The 'leaders' that have taken the role of a Civil Rights leader have all proven to be out for themselves.

I am certain that if Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was still alive to continue his work, he would have tackled one important thing after the Civil Rights Act was passed; parenting our children to be productive members of society and have self-responsiblity. The 'leaders' that took over have been blaming the 'man' instead of working to resolve the ills of the under priviledged. We are now reaping the results of a misguided movement. People who are too willing to blame, accuse, and alienate others for the lives that they are living.

My wife and I have taken our responsiblity as parents to my children very seriously and have made it our purpose in life to make sure that our children will never blame their misfortune on others, but to take responsiblity of their own lives and strive to be a productive member of society. To live their lives in honor of our God. I wish I could say that this is the path that my country is traveling with their children, but I don't think that I will see this in my lifetime.

For a movement that within a decade got the Civil Rights Act passed, hasn't done anything since. The vultures have been fighting over the remains of the movement for the last 43 years.

Re the lynch "controversy".

Just to stake out my ground, I am never about ridiculing or taunting someone based on their physical traits, ethnic origin, religious affiliation, sex, or any of several other reasons.

I'll have to say, that remark was made on the golf broadcast as a good natured measure of envy, not as a racial taunt.

I can think of a few times in my life where I was involved in a discussion of someone's good fortune where the very same remark was made in a good natured manner, and drew laughs in the same spirit. I honestly cannot EVER remember being personally involved in a discussion where it was used as a statement of hate or revenge.

By this I don't mean to say that it can't be and hasn't, particularly in years long past it most definitely was. My point is that hateful references, and particularly of lynching, are simply not part of everyone's experience, particularly younger generations born after the successes of the Civil Rights movement. 

Having grown up during the movement, even I do not go out of my way to associate "lynching" as a hateful phrase toward blacks. In a word association test, if the tester said "lynch" I would pretty certainly reply, "Horse thief". I'll guarantee that there are many young blacks who might not associate the word with an immediate racial connotation if someone like Sharpton weren't around to 'educate' them about it in a very polarizing way.

Unfortunately, at a time when the black community needs leaders with skill and insight to lead them past some current societal problems, Al Sharpton instead chooses to seize any small opportunity to grab some headlines for himself. This marginalizes his ethical values in the eyes of everyone, and damages his ability to be an effective force when and if he tackles an actual problem.
