“There should only be one level of punishment for PED use in any professional sport:
-Lifetime Ban, contract voided
-All money earned as a professional is required to be paid back to the team(s) you played for.
-All corporate sponsorship and endorsement money earned as a professional is required to be donated to charity.
You wouldn't have anything if you didn't take the juice, so when you get caught you come out on the other side with exactly what you earned on your own......nothing.”
“Glad to see them handle it with grace and sportsmanship. I'd like to see the French team leave the gold medals on the stand. I wouldn't want to keep an award I didn't win.”

“I can see why you would say that but if competitors started doing that what you are saying is that the rules only matter when you agree with them. There has to be regs and they need to be followed. The American team accepted that.”

“How did they not win? America broke the rules and were disqualified. France won. There are rules in sports for a reason.”
“Why would Giants fans be shocked/upset about this? The man was a dominant factor in their World Series win, goes down with an injury, and the Giants say "no thanks". Why wouldn't he want to sign with a rival and come back strong to stick it right back to them?”

“Giants/Dodgers rivalry is one of the longest in baseball history. Dates back to when both teams were in New York- Brooklyn Dodgers and New York GIants.”
“All of the political comments on the thread are meaningless to me for this article. I'm more interested in digging deeper into the statistics reported. Is there any data on the college major choices of these young unemployed? What percent of these young people are without a college degree? What portion of these people are graduating with degrees in engineering, accounting and finance, and nursing? Rather than psychology, anthropology, and art history? You can use anything stat to make something look bleak if you spin it properly.”

“People with engineering degrees are really up the creek these days as the corporations are bringing in foreign engineers at half the salary.”

“Your thinking starts with a blockage. You seem to think that only business degrees are of value, and that exactly is how this whole mess started decades ago. Guess what? People with these exact degrees made sure that we are in the situation we are in. Bankers and mega-corporations are made up of sociopaths with business and economy degrees, which are worthless in terms of creating sustainable living and social constructs. Those degrees , combined with dis-regulation created hedge-fund managers and and other wanna-be's that pray to the green, but have no idea how to better people's lives; they are only in it for themselves, how you would expect sociopaths to behave. So, you are wrong and have not understood what is needed in order to change our collective ways. But, sadly and most of all, you have not understood what and who caused this misery.”

“If the point of this study is to figure out which option is healthier, why are they even bothering with comparing junk vs. junk?
With $15 worth of ingredients and an hour in the kitchen, I can prepare enough bread, meat, and veggies to feed myself for a month. People don't buy fast food because it's cheaper; they buy it because they are lazy.”

“It's not a question of raw vs cooked. Subway is no different than any other restaurant chain out there. They take scraps of white turkey meat, mix in a whole bunch of dark meat, skin bits, etc., add a bunch of salt to flavor it, add in some seaweed extract (for consistency), bake it into a tube, slice it into circles, and then serve it to you. Crap is crap whether it's cooked or raw.”
“I am thoroughly enjoying the surge in hard ciders into the beer market. Instead of having to choose between rotten water or light rotten water, I can finally have something with real flavor at any drinking establishment.”

“You know there are better beers available than what you can typically get in most establishments, right?”
“President Obama should appoint Charles Barkley the "Common Sense Czar" of America. That when somebody in Congress wants to do something stupid, Sir can step in and say "That's just turrible.....turrible, turrible, turrible."
I love Charles Barkley.”

“I'm 25 right now. I can only hope that I live long enough to see the day when Bible-thumpers are so small of a minority in this country that they are seen in the same light as those people who stand on street corners shouting about the next apocalypse. It's coming people.......slowly but surely.”
