  1. The United States will increase to $1.45 million funding for Steroids


    The United States will increase to $1.45 million funding for an organization that combats drug use in athletics WASHINGTON -, the head of National Drug Control Policy said Wednesday.


    AFP Slideshow: Sports Doping Issues


    The World Anti-Doping Agency is an international organization that receives $10 million a year from the Olympic Movement and world governments. Through this new formula, the United States will pay 50 percent of the $2.9 paid by the Americas annually and Canada will pay 25 percent with $725,000.



    The Americas_ the United States, Canada and the other countries including Central America, South America, and the Caribbean_ are responsible for $2.9 million, or 29 percent of the funding.

    "Since President Bush (news - web sites)'s State of the Union challenge to remove steroids from U.S. professional athletics, great strides have been made on this issue," said Director John Walters. "When athletes use steroids and other performance-enhancing drugs, they endanger their health, rob competitive athletics of their legitimacy, and set a harmful example for children."



  2. So let me get this straight, we, the taxpayers, will be funding a program that will help in the fight against drug use in the olympics....the same olympics that the United States athletes aren't allowed to wave their (our) flags if we win due to the international public thinking we're showing off....

    Jesus almighty....Kerry is looking better every single day..

  3. ...the more educated I get on this, the more frustrated I am at the direction this is going and how little impact my opinion seems to make.


    letter to your congeressman, what a crock.


    I actuažly favor bush's policy on aggressively tackling the terrorism isue, but what is his deal with bringing steriods into the political limelight?

  4. I actually favor bush's policy on aggressively tackling the terrorism isue, but what is his deal with bringing steriods into the political limelight?
    You can thank Mark Mcguire and the media hype for that, I like bush but this anti steroid thing pisses me off. WTF like there anre not other important things to worry about (much less pay for). Like they are ever going to stop it anyways gimme a ****ing break where will it end? These guys are already taking the next designer drug, this will stop nothing, morons.

    It's not really a Kerry thing. Kerry hasn't taken a stand on steriods. Kerry hasn't taken a stand on anything actually

    But honestly, I think moderates are slowly coming around to side with conservatives. It's one thing or another - people are seeing the reality despite the media bias. And its different than what I thought just two weeks ago.

    The far left bashing Reagan while the nation mourns.
    The far left bashing Pat Tillman.
    George Soros comparing Bush to Hitler.
    Ted Kennedy comparing Bush to Sadaam.
    The economy is looking very good - this isnt the "great depression".
    Kerry's oil solution: Don't drill here. Don't buy from the middle east.
    French president refusing to attend Reagan's funeral.

    (obviously these aren't the views of the majority of liberals -- but the average moderate will not side with this kind of campaign.)

    Give it a couple more months of 'democrat outrage hype' - the public is not buying it anymore...

  8. Find me a politician willing to stand up for personal responsibility and personal liberty in this country anymore. Ain't happening.

    Moderates, conservatives and liberals all need to create issues and platforms for which to take a stand on and get elected. No one is going to stand up and say "Let's legalize steroids."

    There is no voice for us in this government and there probably never will be.

    In a month or two we all will be made into criminals. Common criminals no matter if we have fought for this country, paid its taxes or protected its resources..our nation says we are no better than a common felon. So be it, but I will not forgive and I will not forget being railroaded for the political gain of a few democrats and republicans. My vote will be much harder to get from now on.

  9. ignorance among officials and the general public for sure.

    Bro, can you please tell us who bashed Pat Tillman. I'd like to give the idiot who bashed him a freakin peace of my mind. This man made the ultimate sacrafice to protect us. This pisses me off even more cause his mom was one of my teacher's in high school and I know his youngest brother, his family does not deserve to hear crap about Pat Tillman.

    BTW, wasting our money on catching some athlete with steroids is a true waste of our resources. I hopoe they realize this won't stop athletes from using steroids.

  11. The first who comes to mind is Ted Rall. He called Tillman a "coward" and "rambo want-to-be" he even went as far as to bash the Tillman family for raising a "stupid, arrogant" son.
    Rall's latest publication is a column attacking Ronald Reagan saying "he hopes he's turning a crispy brown" (in hell obviously).

    This is the 2nd time in a month that Rall has attacked persons and their families who have recently died. He is truly a lonely and dickless coward - he's making liberals look terrible. Obviously, not all Democrats share his views - but guilt by association - and hes not helping his guy 'John Kerry' for president.

  12. Rene Gonzalez, a UMASS Grad School student wrote an article calling Tillman a coward and fraud. He is not a public figure like Rall.

  13. Thanks Deoudes.

  14. I'm fairly liberal and have to say that this Rall et al do not represent my feelings nor those of any liberal I know..and I know many. There are talking heads like this on both sides who are essentially politico shock jocks. They should be ignored.

    Anne Coulter anyone?

    People like Rall and Coulter mix hatred into their political views. This is not only unproductive but dangerous for our nation.

  15. yep I agree.
    when Rall follows up his words of hate with "don't vote for bush"
    It's not helping the other side.

    It does make me sick that these people aren't slammed by the mainstream media - and always pull the "freedom of speech" card whenever they want to insult someone or someone's family to attempt to advance their own careers.

  16. All in all I think the average viewer/listener loses their taste for people like that after a while. If they do continue to listen it's out of morbid curiosity. Rush and Stern fans listen to be entertained, not so much informed or taught. People that take every word of anyone's ranting to heart are mindless cretins anyway.

    But Coulter is kind of hot so she gets a pass

  18. haha,
    but the Fox News Girls are the best in my opinion.
    Laurie Dhue, Kiran Chetry, Dagen McDowell, etc. etc. - they are just news girls though, don't share opinions

  19. I guess compared to how much the government does spend on other things it's not that much money but it's still pointless. A large percentage of Athletes at the Olympics are taking performance enhancing drugs. For the most part they are always one step ahead of the testing and probably always will be.

  20. Kerry hasn't taken a stand on anything actually

    Do you think the reaction would be the same if that were conservatives doing that to liberals?lol Out of all of those the Pat Tillman was the one that really angered me. You can expect that from the French, Ted, and the rest of the far left but with Tillman really crossed the line.
    ignorance among officials and the general public for sure.
    It amazes me how little people know. People suport Kerry but have no idea what he stands for on issues.(which is hard because he can't answer a simple question). They think he stands for things that he doesn't. They have no idea about drugs and sports and many other issues either.

  21. You can thank Mark Mcguire and the media hype for that, I like bush but this anti steroid thing pisses me off. WTF like there anre not other important things to worry about (much less pay for). Like they are ever going to stop it anyways gimme a ****ing break where will it end? These guys are already taking the next designer drug, this will stop nothing, morons.
    The things that's annoying is Mcguire was supposedly taking androstendione which didn't work. It's more likely he was taking steroids. Athletes will always be one step ahead of the testing.

  22. As I said a few times on this board that they aren't going to stop with prohormones. I don't know if you guys have read some other recent posts about this ........

  23. Vitamin D is a prosteroid that is metabolized in the liver into the active form of vitamin D that is necessary for body growth and development. Will this be banned ? It should be if the new law is passed. Also, plants containing natural estrogen that are used in the over-the-counter treatment of menopause should also be banned because they do contain a steroid. Natural estrogen, like estrogen replacement therapy, has a body enhancing effect (i.e., anti-aging). Will these be banned ? They should be.

    No they won't be

  25. Anne Coulter anyone?
    What has Anne Coulter said that is remotely close to the Ted Ralls or Rene Gonzalez said?

    Very true.
    Kerry tries to stand for both sides. A true politican. And you can't have it both ways - you can lie about it and distort what you stand for so long. Americans won't buy it come election time.

    He better get a platform together and a vice presidential canidate.

    What sickens me the most is John Kerry accusing George Bush of misleading America about Iraq.

    George W. Bush said Iraq had Weapons of Mass Destruction.
    John Kerry said Iraq had Weapons of Mass Destruction.
    Bill Clinton said Iraq had Weapons of Mass Destruction.
    France said Iraq had Weapons of MAss Destruction.

    I believe they still do.
    but regardless the only one held accountable for their statements is president. Democrats are granted a free pass.

    So true. So true.

    That's a good point. It's pretty ironic that someone who can't even answer if he owns an SUV or not criticizes Bush for misleading people. Unfortunately the dems will always get a pass.
    I believe they still do.
    I believe that they are some where but have probably made their way out of Iraq.
  29. U.S. funding for steroids


    Kerry is not the ideal candidate. He has put his foot in his mouth many a time. His selection for VP will be important, very important. The Dems don't always get a pass. Just listen to Hanity, O'Reilly. and Coulter to name a few. Coulter has stated in her last book and on TV that " all democrats are treasonists, " "Kerry is a gigolo." to name a few. They all say that they "are sick about hearing about the Clintons," yet they bring up both Bill and Hillary constantly. This bickering will never end.

    Iraq obviously had WMDs at some point. Look what happened to the Kurds. I do not believe that the remaining weapons were all distroyed. If they are in Syria, it would not surprise me if the Bush administration gave Syria an ultimatum: Turn them over or we come in. Thus, we could add Syria to our list of new real estate.

    My primary concern in this war is not with Iraq. It is with Bin Laudin vs Saudi Arabia.

  30. We can argue over who is the best candidate till the cows come home. The bottom line is that when it comes to PH use we have next to no voice with either party. Bush isn't going to see the light any quicker than Kerry. Both stand to benefit by appearing "Tough on steroid abuse" and "Cleaning up sports" quack quack quack.

    With the exception of Senator Hatch, so called conservatives are not standing up for personal freedoms (ie our right to use PH) or the concept of personal responsibility (our right to do with our bodies what we wish) any more than so called liberals.

    If you all continue to slant your arguments to try to prove which party is better we'll never get anywhere.
