Lawsuits will $tick it
to dope Armstrong

New York Post, by Chuck Bennett

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 1/16/2013 5:29:03 AM

Lance Armstrong should expect a wave of costly lawsuits in the wake of his doping admission. The government of South Australia became the latest potential plaintiff to hint at legal action against the disgraced cycling champ, who confessed to Oprah Winfrey, in interviews airing tomorrow and Friday, of using banned performance-enhancing drugs. Armstrong took several million dollars in appearance fees from the Australian state to promote the Tour Down Under cycle race from 2009 to 2011, Premier Jay Weatherill said yesterday.

These people are insane. They paid him to promote various things and he did. And they profited from it. So will the Goobernment of S Australia give back the money people pumped into their tour? Will Trek reimburse folks that bought their bikes?

Armstrong should have followed the strategy of our crooked politicians... Deny, deny, deny. It works for them.

It´s not a justification or a defense of Armstrong to claim others do it bigger and worse.

Texans were hugely proud of him. He was our own and he betrayed us. Now, I don´t care if he loses everything.

Armstrong is a con artist,pure and simple.The reason for this mea culpa is so he can keep getting endorsements. Why in the world would the postal service pay this joker $30 million when they´re bankrupt. If he really only cares about cancer cures,why is he self enriching in the process?

There´s not going to be a cure for cancer anyway,it would put to many hospitals out of business.I remember many years ago interferon was the magic bullet.The concept for the cure is correct but billions of dollars later were still stuck on radiation and chemo.

Does anyone know a single person who was harmed by Armstrong´s bike riding wins?

He did show the world that you can come back from major major cancer surgeries and live well.

Should we punish him for being that inspiration to millions of people around the world.

Lance is a cheater and a liar. He should expect that those cheated and lied to might be miffed about it.

No, #6, don´t know anyone who was harmed by Armstrong´s bike riding wins, but I do know someone whose life was nearly destroyed by Armstrong´s vicious - VICIOUS - campaign to ruin this person´s life just because this person spoke the truth about Armstrong´s doping.

It´s all part and parcel. You can´t extricate the lying and deceit and viciousness of character as somehow separate from the wins.

Oh, and there´s the part about how he threw away his wife and kids. That´s not too inspiring.

The world...and professional biking is much safer now. Thank goodness this guy is finally outed for the cheat he is! And I´m s-o-o-o-o glad football, baseball, basketball and all the other ´balls,´ as well as wrestling, boxing and any number of other competitive sports are not involved in such shenanigans! s/

In a Hole, Golf Considers

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

It’s time for Western states to take control of federal lands within their borders, lawmakers and county commissioners from Western states said at Utah’s Capitol on Friday. More than 50 political leaders from nine states convened for the first time to talk about their joint goal: wresting control of oil-, timber -and mineral-rich lands away from the feds. "It’s simply time," said Rep. Ken Ivory, R-West Jordan, who organized the Legislative Summit on the Transfer for Public Lands along with Montana state Sen. Jennifer Fielder. "The urgency is now." Utah House Speaker Becky Lockhart, R-Provo, was flanked by a dozen participants, including

The Clintons´ ´conspiracy commerce´ memo
Politico, by Hadas Gold    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 4/19/2014 4:31:20 AM     Post Reply
The famous Clinton White House document known as "the conspiracy commerce memo" has finally surfaced. The memo, which details how right-wing conspiracy theories made their way into the mainstream press, was written in 1995 and first acknowledged by the White House in 1997. The idea of a “conspiracy” was also famously referred to by Hillary Clinton in 1998, when she cited a “vast right-wing conspiracy that has been conspiring against my husband since the day he ran for president.” The memo, part of the latest trove of documents released by the Clinton Presidential Library on Friday, outlines “the communication stream of conspiracy

President Obama signed an executive order today extending eligibility for the third-highest Defense Department recognition to foreign armies. “Executive Order 12019 of November 3, 1977 (Establishing the Defense Meritorious Service Medal), is amended by inserting, ‘or to any member of the armed forces of a friendly foreign nation,’ after ‘any member of the Armed Forces of the United States,’” said the short order.

Poland and the United States will announce next week the deployment of U.S. ground forces to Poland as part of an expansion of NATO presence in Central and Eastern Europe in response to events in Ukraine. That was the word from Poland’s defense minister, Tomasz Siemoniak, who visited The Post Friday after meeting with Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel at the Pentagon on Thursday. Siemoniak said the decision has been made on a political level and that military planners are working out details. There will also be intensified cooperation in air defense, special forces, cyberdefense and other areas. Poland will play a

AMSTERDAM -- Charlotte van den Berg was a 20-year-old college student working part-time in Amsterdam´s city archives when she and other interns came across a shocking find: letters from Jewish Holocaust survivors complaining that the city was forcing them to pay back taxes and late payment fines on property seized after they were deported to Nazi death camps. How, the survivors asked, could they be on the hook for taxes due while Hitler´s regime was trying to exterminate them? A typical response was: "The base fees and the fines for late payment must be satisfied, regardless of whether a third party,

MOKPO, South Korea -- A prosecutor says that the third mate steering a South Korean ferry at the time of a major accident was navigating those waters for the first time. Senior prosecutor Yang Jung-jin told reporters that the 25-year-old mate was steering the ship as it passed through an area with lots of islands clustered close together and fast currents. The ferry sank Wednesday. More than 270 people are still missing. Yang says that another mate usually took controls through the area. But because heavy fog caused a departure delay, the third mate was steering the ship through the waters. Yang says

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

The Folly Of The Bundy Ranch Rebellion

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent
