Why on earth should we be spending money on trying to say “gotcha!” to a guy who wore spandex for a living?
Somehow, someway, the government of the United States of America is extremely concerned that a guy on a bicycle used steroids so he could win a race in another country.
The United States Anti-Doping Agency (yes, that’s a thing) has been investigating Lance Armstrong, the seven time Tour de France champ, for taking illegal substances.
Keep in mind, these are not criminal charges. If “found guilty,” Armstrong would retroactively be disqualified from the races he competed in, and banned from future competitions.
I just have one simple question … who cares?!
The American people have already been robbed of millions upon millions investigating steroid use in baseball and trying to catch Roger Clemens in the act of perjury, all with the predictable government standard of incompetence.
Why on earth should we be spending more money on trying to say “gotcha!” to a guy who wore spandex for a living?
Add the United States Ant-Doping Agency to the list of things that should be immediately cut from the budget. This is nothing short of infuriating.
In a statement, Mr. Armstrong said, “I have been notified that USADA, an organization largely funded by taxpayer dollars but governed only by self-written rules, intends to again dredge up discredited allegations dating back more than 16 years to prevent me from competing as a triathlete and try and strip me of the seven Tour de France victories I earned.”—Wall Street Journal
