The Charity Founded By Lance Armstrong
Has Formally Dropped His Name

Business Insider, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 11/15/2012 5:50:47 AM

The Lance Armstrong Foundation has formally dropped the name of the disgraced cyclist from its title following the biggest doping scandal in the sport´s history. The foundation has been informally known for years as Livestrong - the word adorning its well-known yellow wristbands. It will now formally be called the Livestrong Foundation, after officials filed paperwork with the Texas Secretary of State for a name change that became effective on Oct 30, spokeswoman Katherine McLane said. "For most of its life, the organization has been known as the Livestrong Foundation, but making that change official is necessary and appropriate

I don´t recall Lance ever failing a major drug screening test while cycling and winning races during his many year career. I do recall the agencies who authored those drug screening tests using "state of the art" methods and equipment.

They just "knew" Lance was "drugging" some way or the other, only their "brain trusts" were not as smart as what Lance put together (in their minds)! They had to bring Lance down...one way or the other.

It´s the right thing to do in America these days...bring down the "top dog" any way you can.

Ask General Petraeus...

Armstrong failed at least six blood tests in the early 2000s and his bio passport data indicated doping in 2009-2010. There were 26 witnesses with first hand knowledge of his doping program.

Marion Jones never tested positive.

Sandusky was convicted with no DNA evidence.

Read USADA´s report; it is a fascinating read.

#2 has the facts. I´ve read and read and read and read all about this and I´m convinced of a few things:

1. Lance Armstrong has been doping his entire career

2. Most Americans have NO IDEA how much money is poured into cycling.

3. Everyone else was doping too (and many were caught and punished, or sadly, died).

4. The reason they persisted after Armstrong is that he is a nasty, nasty, vindicative, petty, egotistical jerk. He didn´t just dispute charges against him, he methodically ruined lives and turned on people. Remember, he left his wife and 3 children just ´cuz...and while I´m certainly NO FAN of Cheryl Crow, remember that cancer survivor, Livestrong Lance, dumped her after she was diagnosed with breast cancer. Everyone else was doping, but he was a dope and d!ck in his every day life.

#2 I believe the facts are these:

"´Armstrong never failed a drug test. He was tested in competition, out of competition. He was tested at the Olympics, at the Tour de France, at dozens if not hundreds of other events. And he never failed a test.´ Instead Travis Tygart, chief executive officer of the USADA, gathered a group of people who swear they saw Armstrong doping."

The USADA, with better testing analysis now, has gone back to 1999-2000 and re-tested samples, and there is speculation that EPO is present. So here are the facts:

1. At the time they were given, all his tests were negative
2. Everyone in the cycling profession "probably" used drugs
3. Most likely, the advertisers and the regulators KNOW THIS
4. The business of cycling benefits from everyone turning their heads away from the facts

It is hypocritical to think that WWE professional wrestlers, 350# NFL linemen, most Olympic athletes, etc, do not use drugs. It´s good for business !

I suggest we allow all pro athletes to use drugs if they want, and stop fooling ourselves that "Just say no" is a valid alternative.

#5 - The problem with the "everyone does it, so just let them do it" mentality is that at some point, after a few deaths or after a dozen deaths, there starts to be a public outcry to regulate the doping and put rules in place to keep people from doping. It´s the way of the world.

BTW, after reading all I´ve read, I´m also convinced that Armstrong (and his doctor) paid off quite a few people to keep positive tests under wraps.

WEST, Texas—Block by block, schools, homes and businesses are steadily being pieced back together here, a year after a blast at a fertilizer depot laid waste to much of the town. But the mental wounds suffered by residents are proving much harder to heal. Army veteran Joshua Zarecor was at an apartment complex near the West Fertilizer Co. facility, watching firefighters battle a blaze there last April 17, when the plant suddenly exploded, shattering glass in the complex and causing its walls to collapse. Misty Lambert, 38 years old, who had moved to West several weeks earlier, said she had invited Mr.

"The heavens reek, the waters below are foul ... we are in a crisis of survival." That´s how Walter Cronkite and CBS hyped the first Earth Day, back in 1970. Somehow we´ve survived since then, and most of life got better, although I never hear that from the worrywarts. Of course, some things got better because of government: We passed environmental rules that got most of the filth out of the air and sewage out of lakes and rivers. Great—but now we´re told that we´re in big trouble because greenhouse gases cause global warming. I mean, climate change. "Crop yields are

The Stupid Hounding of Condi Rice
Politico Magazine, by Rich Lowry    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 4/17/2014 5:53:10 AM     Post Reply
If Condoleezza Rice were as self-pitying and politically crass as Attorney General Eric Holder, she would be wondering aloud what it is about her race and gender that accounts for the hostility of her enemies. Rice’s recent speaking gigs on college campuses and her ascension to the board of the file-sharing company Dropbox have sparked protests calling for her to be disinvited, cashiered and generally isolated and shamed. Condi Rice is not a natural lightning rod. She’s such a disreputable figure that she’s on the board of the Kennedy Center and the Boys and Girls Clubs of America. She’s such a lightweight

Shoot Down a ´Government Drone´

As a "government drone" hovers over Matt Rosendale, the Republican House candidate from Montana tells the camera what he thinks of government overreach, regulation, and "spying on our citizens." Then, standing in front of an ATV, Rosendale coolly puts a rifle to his shoulder, looks up through the sight and "downs" the drone with a single shot. "The federal government is too big and too powerful," Rosendale says. "I´m ready to stand tall for freedom and get Washington out of our lives," he says. Rosendale is trying to stand out in a five-way primary for Montana´s at-large seat in the House. Sporting a barn

A story is told about Robert L. Bartley, late editor of the Wall Street Journal, and his penchant for long silences. He is supposed to have once taken a job applicant to lunch at which, though the two shared a meal, neither spoke a syllable. That is no doubt apocryphal; the job applicant probably said something. George Washington had a taciturn streak, as did President Coolidge, known as “Silent Cal.” (Snip)But rarely does anyone get as upset about it as Jeffrey Toobin of the New Yorker appears to be in respect of Clarence Thomas. Toobin came unglued at the disinclination of

Let’s say you got into politics running for office as a Democrat. You hate Rupert Murdoch and Fox News and the Wall Street Journal, and you really, really hate Bill Kristol. You despise bankers and got set up in activism by a group working on behalf of “the working class” and complaining: “Every day the rich tighten the chains . . . . They close the factories, the mills, the mines, and ship our jobs overseas.” You’re part of a group that endorses the Mearsheimer-Walt view that Israeli interests hold American foreign policy captive – a group that also wholeheartedly

The U.S. must stand behind

Washington Post, by Michael Chertoff    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 4/17/2014 5:09:09 AM     Post Reply
On the eve of Operation Iraqi Freedom in 2003, Gen. James Mattis admonished the 1st Marine Division to “[d]emonstrate to the world there is ‘No Better Friend, No Worse Enemy.’” That motto could serve as a guiding principle for sound national security policy. Regrettably, our allies wonder whether the United States is demonstrating the reverse. Since leaving as secretary of homeland security in January 2009, I have talked with officials from friendly nations in Asia and the Middle East. Increasingly, I hear skepticism about whether the United States remains a reliable ally our friends can trust for support against attacks.

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you

White babies just 15 months old show racial

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

Hank Aaron’s recent comments about the need for America to realize that racism is still very much alive and thriving — only now due to those who wear “neckties and starched shirts” rather than KKK hoods — has sparked an angry backlash and many fans are turning the tables, calling the baseball legend himself a racist. “Hank Aaron is a s*****g piece of [expletive] [racial slur],” one man said in an email to the Atlanta Braves’ front office, one of the teams Mr. Aaron used to play for, CBS News reported. “My old man instilled in my mind from a

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it
