"War is the parent of armies; from these proceed debts and taxes; and armies, and debts, and taxes are the known instruments for bringing the many under the domination of the few."

- James Madison

Your Representatives

You knew when you sent them to Washington it was for a purpose, but that purpose is overridden by their need to posture and play in the sandbox of Clear Politics:

Congress to Hear from Baseball Players


U.S. Steroid Hearings May Spur Call for All-Sport Drug Policy

Canseco may refuse to answer questions


These are your representatives in action? Then again, think how fortunate we are to live in a country where this is the most important problem for our government. Good thing we don’t have an oversized out-of-control deficit that calls for the streamlining of our bloated bureaucracy, otherwise our legislators wouldn’t have time to tackle the important issue of why athletes take performance enhancing drugs.

Consider: Is there a performance enhancing drug politicians could take? No, besides power.

Who requested the hearings? Rep. Henry A. Waxman (D), Ranking Member of the House Government Reform Committee. (Ranking Member of the House Government Reform Committee? This is government reform, or is another (D) off topic?)
