DOES CONGRESS NOT HAVE ENOUGH TO DO?

Why in the hell is Congress worried about steroid use in major league baseball? Do these idiots not have enough on their plate with the war on terror and the war in Iraq and Afghanistan? Does major league baseball receive federal funds that warrant the input from Congress?

With everything going on in the world right now, I think our legislatures need to keep their fingers out of pro baseball. They cannot get anything else right, so what makes them think that they will succeed here?

I could understand Ted "hic" Kennedy being worried about the price of liquor at a game, but this is ridiculous.

I in no way condone the use of steroids. They are dangerous and illegal, but we are letting the media convict these guys based on heresay. He said, she said, he poked me in the butt, I poked him in the butt.....OMG, enough already!

Right now, it's just a couple of guys who have written books saying that they know players who used....could it be that book sales are the motive here?

I believe that use of steroids is a problem in pro baseball, but it is a problem that the MLB has to deal with and possibly law enforcement if anyone is caught, but Congress has no business in the business of pro sports. They can, in my opinion find more constructive use of their time, such as concentrating on much more pressing issues.

Sports are the opiate of the masses. Check out church attendance verses sports attendance on any Sunday. Look at how people call the happy clappy churches a bunch of nuts and then paint themselves half blue and half gold at a U of M game. Look at all the valuable talk radio we miss because of ball games. Politicians finally figured out that they can win votes and do nothing controversial by getting into drug abuse in baseball. So much for social security reform, national security, and killing the IRS.

I like sports AND religion! Politics takes a back seat to both of them. :)

Congress needs to put a scare into the players union. They think they can cover up illegal doings by shielding their players. These players make millions of dollars. Its about time the put some of their money back into the american judical system, by paying some heavy fines. Money can't buy you everything......
