Can someone tell me why Alexander Emmanuel “Alex” Rodriguez, nicknamed “A-Rod”, is so important? All I’ve heard in the last few weeks are stories about his alleged involvement again with an agency that provided some sort of banned drugs. Mr. Rodriguez was suspended through the 2014 season on Monday when the league penalized 13 players following an investigation into Biogenesis of America, a shuttered Florida anti-aging clinic accused of distributing banned performance-enhancing drugs. Mr. Rodriguez’s union formally filed an appeal of his doping suspension today, August 8, 2013.
His case will now be reviewed by an independent arbitrator. The players’ association had no further comment. Thank God there will be no further comment until the arbitrator rules in favor of MLB’s ban of Alex Rodriguez from a GAME even little kids play.
Rodriguez is the majors’ active leader with 648 career homers. One of his accomplishments in New York was to help win the 2009 World Series, batting .365 with six homers and 18 RBIs in the postseason that year. I met Mr. Rodriguez once in Texas, when he was a shortstop for the Rangers or playing third base for the Yankees. He was attending an elementary school event at St. Vincent’s School. I didn’t recognize him. It was my brother-in-law who pointed him out to me. I still wasn’t impressed with this character who plays a GAME for a living. Needless to say I didn’t ask for his autograph. I’ve only asked one baseball player for his autograph and I’d hate to taint his name in this diatribe, by telling you who it was.
Thinking I had heard the last of Alex Rodriguez’s troubles with MLB, a former teammate and childhood friend, Johnny Damon said in an interview on MLB Network Radio on Sirius XM that the title in 2009 would be diminished if Rodriguez used performance-enhancing drugs during the playoff run. Mr. Damon said, “I really haven’t gotten to think that far, but if that’s how he was able to hit in the postseason, like he did that year, then yeah, absolutely, then you start going and saying, Well, was anybody on their team cheating?” In other words… How many more players of the New York Yankees were using performance enhancing drugs during the 2009 World Series?
So what is the big deal about using DRUGS to win? Baseball is just a GAME. Many other sporting nations have used drugs to make better Olympians. Who has been hurt by the use of drugs? Not I and I really don’t care if the health of these people who play games is affected in any way.
Does an American third baseman for the New York Yankees of Major League Baseball deserve more airtime, attention, and press than Major Nidal Malik Hasan? Why are we ignoring the trial of this killer who is defending himself?
Where are the celebrity lobbyists and high-profile advocates for the victims of the bloodthirsty Muslim vigilante Nidal Hasan? In his opening statement on Tuesday, Hasan (acting as his own lawyer) apologized to his fellow jihadists for not destroying more innocent life.
Why so much apathy for this man who didn’t use banned drugs to become a better shooter? The White House has downplayed the terrorist mass murders as “workplace violence, and has encouraged national apathy about his evil acts.
Hasan’s military colleagues and superiors were more concerned with being accused of discrimination than with ridding our military of this known deranged Islamist radical. In 2007, two years before he carried out his homicidal plan, Hasan laid out his murderous means, motives, and Koranic inspiration for all to see.
Major Hasan’s PowerPoint slide presentation to fellow Army doctors was titled: “The Koranic World View As It Relates to Muslims in the U.S. Military.” Hasan warned: “It’s getting harder and harder for Muslims in the service to morally justify being in a military that seems constantly engaged against fellow Muslims.” And: “We love death more then [sic] you love life!” by Michelle Mallkin, August 6, 2013 Major Hasan’s Death Spree Political correctness has trumped truth in the Fort Hood massacre.
Do you know that Major Hasan and Mr. Alex Rodriguez are still being compensated for their actions? One will continue to receive checks for his military service until he is executed. But will his family also receive any compensation after his demise? On the other hand, Mr. Rodriguez will continue earning millions, because the fans who adore him will continue paying exorbitant fees to attend baseball games.
Please go to National Review Online or click on the link below to sign a petition to change the White House’s assessment of this killer’s actions. Thirteen adults and an unborn child lost their lives, with dozens of others wounded. The government claims it was workplace violence.
Honor the victims of the Ft. Hood shooting rampage by signing this petition today. Major Hasan is a Muslim Terrorist acting on U.S. soil. His actions were not mere workplace violence. MajorHasan told a jury of senior Army officers that the evidence will clearly show that he is the shooter, and that he apologizes for any mistakes he has made in this endeavor.
His endeavor was not just “workplace violence” but TERRORISM.
