Can someone please explain to me why our Senate is investigating major league doping? I just don't get it. So they cheated - who cares? Last I checked, they didn't compromise national security, they don't get paid with tax dollars, there's nothing in the Constitution that says we can't take performance-enhancing drugs. Yes, it's disappointing to see that "America's pastime" is riddled with untruth, but isn't it more disappointing to think about how our senators are spending their time and our money?
I sincerely believe there HAVE to be more effective uses of our government employees' time. Like, I don't know, figuring out how to keep drugs out of the hands of kids or how to pay teachers more or taking care of our troops or taking care of our environment or insert pet cause here because I'm guessing no one's losing sleep over the doping besides the people directly involved. And they don't actually seem to care.
I vote we move on. You?
P.S. If there's a larger, more relevant, issue here that I'm missing, seriously please let me know. I might just be painfully ignorant (and now I'll have to admit it in this public forum. Horrors!) All you have to do is click on "comments" below and fill me in on the details. Thanks.
