I'm Going To Stop Paying Taxes If This Continues

This is my elected representative, Elijah Cummings (D-Md.), sitting on a Congressional hearing listening to Roger Clemens. Guess who I'm not voting for?

This is Sen. Arlen Specter (R-Pa.) talking about Spygate and calling for an independent investigation of the incident. He also threatened Congressional probes.

If they don't [act], I think it's up to Congress to investigate and take corrective action.

I don't know about you, but I'm tired of this. I think its wasteful and plain silly for Congress to be sticking their overly large noses into sports like this. I'm not ready to fund some senator's overindulgent "investigation" into professional football's integrity. It honestly ticks me off. I'm tired of Spygate, and furthermore, I don't think we, as a people, should give Congress reign over anything they want. Roger Goodell and Matt Walsh don't have to "report" to Specter at all - no one made him World Police (warning about link: language).

I'm bordering on being serious here: If I keep seeing Congress take these silly ventures into sports and try to control every aspect of our lives, even our leisure interests, I'm going to stop paying for it.

Ridiculous. Be ashamed of yourselves and mind your own business ... like, say, ending the war.

Clean this post up and send it to Cummings as an e-mail. Their staffers do pay attention to the personal e-mails they get from their constituents (especially emails that are not the cut-n-paste "click here to email your congressman" campaigns). Particularly in Maryland, particularly at this moment, congressmen ought to be paying attention and responding, because it's an election year and what just happened to Al Wynn in the primaries should be fresh in their memories.

The unfortunate truth is that Elijah Cummings will be re-elected whether I vote for him or not. He always wins by a landslide in Baltimore.

Congressman Cummings is entrenched, but I am running against him. I am a Liberty Republican in that I am conservative, disagree with undeclared wars including the Iraq War, disagree with the Patriot Act, and love our liberties that we have left such as the 2nd amendment.

He can be beat. At least he has someone running against him this time.
