It has come to my attention seval times that men in sports are having to attend congresional hearings. First what is congress doing in these day in age sticking there nose in the buisness of sports, is the irag war over are they bored, no I do not think so. The first red flag I came accross is when HGH a supplement that poeple I respect for there health knowledge agree as being beneficial (althought it took time to get there) being lupped in with steroids. So yeah steroids is illegal and yeah HGH I believe is band in baseball but a congressinal hearing? So the bad rep HGH was getting was one thing, and it may be a wierd back end way of kicking off another anti supplement campain, or at least against HGH. But something else was there, and I did not get my clue till I heard about this book Free Lunch by David Cay Johnston, a New York Times investigative reporter that was exposing hidden inequities in the tax system, ranging from subsidies for professional sports stadiums to secret payouts to multinational corporate chief executives. It made allot of since it was another pattern of rome, and if the goverment is paying HUGE sums of money why would it not have a hearing on this topic. It also fits with the president that we have being that his family where, and maybe are invested in professional sport teams. YOu think any sports fan would trade there childerens schooling, housing, or food for millions being payed to sport stars? This ofcourse is nothing to the trillions reported missing by the pentagon. No hearings on that one?February 15, 2008 at 8:47 pm #27513
. . . when you can line the pockets of execs that will supposedly
keep the economic machine (i.e. monster) moving?
Besides–the wealthy have the most to lose if our economic system
collapses. Thus desperation and fear of losing helps to generate
under-the-radar shady deals and agreements.
As I mentioned in the other post, the more money you have and spend in
our economy, the “better the citizen you are” in the government’s view–even
if they don’t say so overtly. Thus they are more than willing to
grease the wheels of those that are viewed as being the “best citizens”.
In other words, this all fits the overall pattern.
Just make you sure you spend your $600 government rebate check on
junk to keep the wheels turning 😛
