W., my point is CIA gents have been f*#king around for years. This is news? What's to compromise? It's all puppetry anyway.

I love the cat fight backstory, though. Jealous woman emailing threats to new flame. Remember the diaper-wearing female astronaut who drove to Florida to confront her lover's flame? Same dealio.

Its funny, I just read an article recently were some military specialist was complaining that they don't fire generals anymore. It seems in WWII, if you lost one battle you were demoted, but now (so this guy argues) its all about looking out for each other's careers. Anyway, his last comment was that the only way a general could get fired in this day and age is if he had a relationship with a subordinate. then two days later the Patraeus thing comes out in the public. lol true enough, though there evidently is a bigger back story to the story....

Well, we know for certain that Lance is definitely hiding from the truth and refuses to come to terms with it.

As are some of his still very few loyal and denying fans.... Bullw.

Final straw came today when Lance's own Foundation showed him the door and told him never to return then slammed it on his ass as they shut it behind him.

Now Lance is banished to his own prison for the remainder of his life.

I doped extensively during my (amateur) racing career.

Carbonized herbal supplements administered through a tube and caffeine infusions.

Wow, I feel so much better now!

He is the Highest decorated Officer in the Military

He advocated, and should be upheld to the highest standard of the Military Code Of Honor

He has no excuse, he Must resign, or be Court Marshaled

Funny, General Colin Powell tells a pack of lies to the UN and gets us in an unjustified, illegal war that kills thousands and somehow the real demon is a guy who can't resist a little nooky

Odd, thought you did with a first name as yours, "Rotting". But then, you do live in Mammoth Lakes, CA. which in itself should be enough.

"Mammoth Lakes: A town without a clue."

EDIT: But then again you would probably enjoy a life of complete solitude which all you do is lie on a couch all day long in front of seven jerseys that mean absolutely nothing to anyone except yourself..

MH, what betrayus did to earn that name is he went along with Bush, Cheney, et al when it was crystal clear to the other military men, and should have been obvious to him as well, that it was a no-win situation. Betrayus was willing to do anything to further his career, including stepping on the necks of his brothers in arms.

The other miltary man you name eventually came to speak the truth in public, dead-ending his career. betrayus bought, literally, some temporary peace by paying out hundreds of millions in cash to the very groups that were targeting our soldiers. Isn't that how we created the terror groups that eventually attacked us on 9/11?

Of course, that was nothing new to his leaders who had sold out our hostages in Iran to buy some political capital against Jimmy Carter. Sell them arms, give the money to another terrorist group, the contra's, and make sure the Iranians won't bargain with President Carter. I'm not so sure that the ill-advised rescue mission they eventually sold him on wasn't sabotaged to ensure it's failure.

After all they were the same guys that also sold Sadam his WMD's and then let him use them against his own citizens. You know, the ones Bush sr. told to "rise up, and we will support you". Bush gave him permission to fly helicopters armed with poison gas and kill those very same freedom fighters. Junior and cheney used this event as proof of the weapons existence a decade later to get us into another disasterous war.

Betrayus lined up his star with those treasonous bastards and now the chicken has come home to roost. He deserves whatever he gets, but it wont be enough because he, both bushes, cheney, probably a half dozen others should be lined up against a wall and shot for selling out our country. Sorry, my country. I know you're from the GWN...

Bold by me.

So what you're really stating is that the yellow jersey means absolutely nothing to anyone, since Landis, Contador were doping, we know guys like Hinault, Merckx, Indurain slipped out quietly and discretely before the sh#t really hit the fan, etc.

In other words every winner of the Tour de France for decades has used performance enhancing drugs, some have been caught, but for whatever reason only Lance receives your scorn. Weird.

The whole enchalida is a sham, has been for a long time (doesn't mean that the riders don't train hard), and the only reason performance enhancing drugs are still involved are because the sponsors, race organizers, etc. (read the money and power behind the race) advocate it. If they didn't the races wouldn't be doing them (not that they should not be responsible for their actions).

Again, why do you continue to single out Lance?

Because Lance lies with less shame and more self-righteousness then all the others put together. He also made $130 million doing it - and continues to deny to this day that he has done anything wrong and insists that his accusers are simply pursuing self serving vendettas. It's all just so shameless.

So, having read only this page I get the impression that Petraeus outed Lance.

I'm pretty sure the chief hyperventilating over Lance is the main driver of CO2-induced global climate change.

Prison...Not. "Fortress" is a far more realistic title. And you of course know why.

Five County Sheriff's (Mono & Inyo), three Bishop PD's including the COP and two CHP's reside here. All active. Let's not go into the LEO and Military retirees. More weaponary resides here than you could imagine. Crime in the area of this community in the past 25 years.. absolutely ZERO.

Mammoth isn't that bad

Which one of the hundreds of rocks in town do you live under?? Really sad when the CEO of the local Ski Resort pretty much owns the town gov't and controls everything that happens. Even shuts down the neighboring town of June Lake with a snap of his fingers.

Oh, and how about them Chapt 11 proceedings your town council moved on for over six months in order to reneg from paying their obligations. Yet keep paying a non-local $490K annually to advise the town gov't how to operate from her residence in Camarillo.
