PEDs for Congress


I feel sorry for A-Rod and his compadres who decided it was best to use drugs to enhance their performance. I think the biggest crime is that they didn’t share these PEDs with Congress.

Surely these drugs would awaken all parties – Republican, Democratic and tea party – to the fact that they are elected to protect the people who elect them, and maybe it would improve their performance. Just think if PEDs were administered to House Speaker John Boehner, Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and Rep. Paul Ryan. What would happen? Maybe we would accept this “don’t play well with others,” or maybe they would actually do something.

Whose battle is this? The politicians’ or the people’s? It is time. Stop this madness and stand up for what you want (need to live). Insurance? Taxes? All good debates, but let’s be honest. If you really want things, it costs all of us money. The world has changed so much since 1776, so get on with it and do your part.
