If you think that your providing a few websites here for the first time since 2006 Chris well get you kudos, think again.
A lot of us pointed out the questiuoinable problems in cycling, while you refused to help with the research and you sure as hell didn't provide any solutions as you had already quit cycling for your hiking, which we could understand up to a point.
In the beginning I had stated that the sponsors had a big part in the problem of doping, while the rest of you ignored that as you only focused on the riders and the teams.
It also wasn't very hard in identfying which federation was really taking the fight to rid cycling of doping seriously as those who just played dumb, not to mention that operation Puerto a large section of the listing of non-cycling athletes, which I suspected were French and Spanish, but British as well.
I think that it's quite clear by now that everyone's turning their guns towards the UCI and that sin't going to accomplish anything unless they clear everyone from the TOP down out of there.
As for the British horsey riders, horse doping is older than all of us here, but I'n curious as to why you provided that article here in a cycling forum that you keep nagging about.
Riders do get seriously hurt in this profession and I can see where they might be using medications for helping them keeping the pain under control and also for helping them maintain their stammina through each of the races.
We have Horse race tracks here in El Paso and up in Ruidoso, NM, which is about a three hors drive from here.
1 I don’t need Kudos
2 I did not need to research to much, you did and got it all wrong, FL was guilty
3 I don’t know where you got that from, we all said that EVERYONE was guilty
4 That is just YOUR opinion, wrong as usual
5 So?
6 See below
7 So doping is OK then?
8 Good to hear that, and so you should know how to spell ‘horsy’ also :… You’re…Questionable…Identifyin g.,,,…Isn’t … I’m…. Stamina … Hours

You stated: "Crime is crime and it doesn't mean shit to me as to what a person's position is if they commit the crime."

I can make a very convincing argument as to why your statement can easily be perceived as that of a person who would stop at nothing, including taking the law into his own hands, to avenge a crime.

As it happens, I just recently had an occasion where I had to point a gun at another man as he was commiting a crime, while I was also on my cell phone with the 911 disptacher, dirtecting the police to my location and when the police should up, they examined all of my credentials and my pistol as well. My pistol wasreturned to me and I later left. Along with the police there was also an ICE agent who assisted me in aprending this individual.
Damn! I didn't realize that a weapons permit was so irreverently handed down in Texas. I would think the State of Texas would want to be assured that the people to whom permits were issued could, at least, spell committing, dispatcher, directing, and apprehending, properly.

I said the military is mission oriented and it was far more reasonable to the mission of the military to save the career of a line officer than that of a typist. Yes, I said that. And I won't apologize for it, no matter how badly it rubs you.

I was also on "go" pills when I was flying F16's for the Air Force; prescribed by the Flight Surgeon. I'm still here, despite of being shot at many times by the enemy. And, I never "bent a prop." So what's your point?

The societies in our three countries are more alike then they are different. But, I suspect that you may not even know if it isn't reported through the news media that most people depend on getting their daily information.

Where our military personnel are far more on the go between depolyments and redepolyments to Iraq and Afghanistan along with returning to home bases back here in the US, we find all of them carrying latops for attaining the news and international news.

They actually stay more current with the local, national, and international new far more then the local communities. Most likely the same cases in both of your countries as well.

1. What I was referring there was in response to your point about which was more important a position in saving CD. You pointed out a squadron commander in comparison to a low ranking clerk typest.
My point is that I don't care which of the two commited the crime, the criminal needs to be arrested and brought to court. So, if the criminal is the squadron commander, then arrest them and bring them to court.

2. And as a mental health therapist who knows and understand human nature far better then you do, I can also input a counter argument to your argument and I have already done so in the courtroom once before to where the prosecuter lost his case there in what we call "Veteran's Court" that deals with Iraqi and Afghanistan veterans. You may have the same process there in Florida as well.

3. If that is the best argument you can provide here CD, then I know you're a shitty lawyer.

4. There you go again with the "anti-woman' thing CD. There are some really good mental health poeple there at your nearby Dept of VA faciity CD. Looks like you really could use some help from them.

5. It only allows me to see that you're a crooked (dirty) lawyer
and I took the time in contacting the Florida Bar Association in bringing you to their attention.

6. I'm fully aware of what the pilots have gone through and that they were perscribed "GO Pills." Glad you made it CD,
By the way CD, F-16 don't have "Props." And any decent Grunt alreday knows that dumb ass.

7. I challange you to go into any American Legion, DAF, Marine Corps Leagur or VFW post/chapter anywhere there in Florida and talk that SHIT there to the members CD!
You're the one who seems to have issues with the Grunts from what I've been redaing in your writinbg.

8. Glad to hear you're in good health. But, your mental health isn't so good.

You're the one who twisted everything around here through your attacking GeeMan and then me CD. So, I 'd have to ask you what you got going on with you that has you so twisted up since you not only ever re-read the threads in order to bring you back on topic, but you sure as hell seem to disregard everything else as well.
earlier here you made the comment that you were shot at while flying your F-16!

What type of fire and where did that happen at.
Reason I ask is that the last time that I was able to talk with an F-16 pilot was at the Joint Fire Course there at Elin and it was before we all went to Saudi Arabia for fun and games.

So, it's a tank jockey talking with an F-16 jockey!

2. It's actually more important for you to go back through your writings and review them for youself. I'm not your errand boy and I'm not doing your home work for you.

Two other cycling lawyers here in El Paso read these forum threads and they were the ones who also pointed out your attitude towards women and it was they who recommended in contacting the Florida Bar Association.

3. I can only tell you that it was from the DOD and Dept of VA. I never wrote down the names simply because our Women's Veterans coordinater who attended as well wrote all of that down and she has since married along with moving to another state to where we lost track with one another.

If you check out today's news media, you'll see that the US Air Force is again in trouble because of Sexual Harassment again!

If you are married CD, does your wife know about your attitude towards women or do you with hold it to yourself.

David Hackworth interviewed my "Tank Crew." That would be as in a tank crew of a battle tank like that of an M1A1HA tank. Are you able to comprehand now or are you still that stupid.

2. YES CD. David Hackworth died of cancer there in Mexico! So, you did comprehand that after looking it up on the Internet. Well done dumb ass!

3. Only referenced that any decent commander or officer with any real leadership skills doen't have to resort to "Direct Orders" when working with their NCOs.

The F-16 pilot that I met at the Joint Fire Course there at Eglin was some what high strung as you too. That was till he actually relized that we had more in common then in differences considering that the pilots needs us gound combatants to destroy the missile sites, so that they can help us out as well.

The rest of the course he and I had a great time in comparing our two professions and in working together.

4. Actually CD, I don't even think about the rounds that my tank crew and I shoot because it's not that important in comparison to hittin the target and destroying the enemy while moving through the desert.

But, I do understand your point as I have learned that many pilots
have that same feeling as they're not able to actually see where their minitions drops or what they destroy without feed back of the forward ground operaters. I do hope that you were able to make peace with that.

During Desert Shirld and Storm, it was our understanding that many of the Iraqi pilots either flew their aircraft to Iran in order in not to having to fight you guys in the sky or they stayed on the ground. So, how many Iraqi pilots stuck around and actually fought your guys considering that there were UU Navy and Marine Corps po=ilots as well as the British piolts fighting in that war?

5. I can only say as God is my witness that I never gave any POW camp a thought because that only takes place once you're actually caught by the enemy and luckily that never happened as I wasn't a ground pounder. I was in the 1st Aviation Brigade at the time as it was my very first assigntment straight out of AIT.

Being scared is an automatic part of the human system. By the time of Desert Shield/Storm I had already developed a mental process that takes over, which enables one in doing their job and since we had two full sized ground combat divisions in fornt of us (3rd Armored Cavalry Regiment), by the time that we had found any enemy positions, they had already been rolled over by those two divisions and there were no enemy around.
But, them I'm pretty sure that you're read as much as I have and know all there is to know about that short war.

6. Actually CD, I don't remeber you ever making any mention that you were a pilot in the Air Force and I would never deny the Air Force their credit in any war becase as the waiting for the ground war to even begin, we all were beginning to think that you air jockeys were going to win the damn war by yourselves and leave us with nothing to do.

So, get your nickers back in place CD.

Of course he has many other faults (don’t we all?) He seems to life in a ‘Walter Mitty’ world.
