Anyone who uses the words 'stupid', 'fucking', 'piehole', 'bullshit', 'fucks', 'assholes', 'shit', and 'asses', in one post, has lost control of themselves.THIS.
If Armstrong's Tour de France victories should be repealed, then a bloodlust of equivalent magnitude should be waged against anyone who has won that event since him (at minimum).
It is STUPID to think that by de-frocking Armstrong of his victories, that doping with PEDs in the professional cycling circuit has been eradicated.
Furthermore, look at the IOC's doping thresholds for athletes registering as using testosterone/androgens, etc:
Unless every professional/international athletic regulatory board is willing to investigate every champion alive to date, they should shut their fucking mouths.
To make one a pariah and villify them is a fucking joke.
You want only "pure" athletes to ever win a game or a medal in any given sporting event?
Then isolate random children at birth, raise them in bubbles (a confined and controlled environment) for the duration of their lives including their training and competitive years) and once they retire (by free-will, or force) disallow them from ever competing again.
Otherwise, shut your pie-hole.
Another excellent point.
Kenneth Lay might have died in prison, but it took about a decade to make any charges against him stick.
What about the other fucks in the mark-to-market economy buster?
Most of the went free.
What about the assholes that caused the sub-prime market to collapse?
They are offshore spending their embezzled fortunes and "too big to fail" bonuses while the rest of us sit here and wonder how in the fuck our great-great-grandchildren are going to payoff these most recent societal fleecings (of the populace, by the power elite).
"PRIVATIZE PROFITS; SOCIALIZE LOSSES" = BULLSHIT
Yet somehow we're supposed to feel grateful for all this.
And in the throws of it all, throw stones at Lance Armstrong to make ourselves feel better.
My response to the above is = "EAT SHIT and DIE."
It's not entertainment, although I greatly appreciate your sarcasm.
Here's what it all is.
What three things must ANY ruling party/government/regime do to ensure they remain in power?
(1) Convince the people they rule that someone OTHER THAN THEIR GOVERNMENT is their ENEMY.
(2) Keep the people you rule FED.
(3) Keep the people you rule ENTERTAINED.
"Entertainment" is actually not directly necessary, confusion will suffice, and is alot cheaper to levey.
KEEP YOUR ENEMIES CONFUSED and you can DO WHATEVER YOU WANT.
The media doesn't necessarily tell us "what to think"; it tells us "what to think about."
Heads up people: Lance Armstrong, Kim Cardashian, and Brangelina's latest adopted child ARE NOT what really matters in this world.
More people need to get their heads out of their asses and pay attention.
