Time to Speak Up, America

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Roger Clemens' denial of steroid use warrants further investigation, Congress said Wednesday in asking the Justice Department to determine whether the star pitcher lied under oath in testimony to a House committee. House Oversight and Government Reform Committee chairman Henry Waxman and ranking Republican Tom Davis sent a letter to Attorney General Michael Mukasey, urging more scrutiny of Clemens' statements in a Feb. 5 sworn deposition and at a Feb. 13 public hearing where he said he "never used anabolic steroids or human growth hormone."

Why in the world is Congress chasing Roger Clemens when we have world-class treasonous war criminals right in our White House? How can our Congressional Representatives seriously pretend to seek vengeance against sports figures when our supposed President, VP, and his administration have committed high crimes and misdemeanors? They are guilty of TREASON folks, and we need to pressure our Senators and Congressmen to do they real job they swore to do - to uphold the Constitution and protect our democracy from all enemies foreign AND DOMESTIC.

I couldn't care less right now if Roger Clemens was shooting up, but I really do care if my government is shredding the Constitution. There is the real crime.

Go to to look up the contact information of your elected officials. We should all be completely outraged over this massive waste of time, and this blatant denial of serious impeachable offenses. Constituents have a job in this democracy too, and that's to hold Congress's feet to the fire.

You are right on the money here. Read George McGovern's letter in the New York Times from a few weeks back. Doesn't it just get your blood boiling! America's too concerned about who's going to win the next American Idol, they don't want to be bothered with the real, tough stuff. Until, of course, they've lost enough of their civil rights to finally pay attention. You'd think we're at that point, but Americans are pretty apathetic, it's going to take a strong swat with a brick up along side their collective heads!

Bingo. I will write to Norm and Amy to see just what the hell reason they can come up with as to why we care that baseball players are using steroids, particularly when the baseball organization as a whole doesn't care. But, you know, this is an election year and no one wants to take on anything of substance because their comments and votes could be used against them. Chicken shits.
