Don’t you feel safe? With all of the problems facing our borders and national security; With ACLU lawyers succeeding in getting the Prez to suggest shutting down Gitmo, so that terrorists can get more rights on our soil (the glazed chicken and rice pilaf dinners on Gitmo are not enough); With more and more illegals coming in through our borders unchallenged; With Homeland Security officials like Brian Moskowitz (Detroit’s top ICE official) looking the other way as thousands of Muslim illegals pour in; With all of that, the House Judiciary House Judiciary Committee’s Subcommittee on Immigration, Border Security and Claims is investigating . . . gymnast Paul Hamm’s Olympic Gold Medal! Because he had to sweat it out for a few days in 2004 before getting to keep the medal, we need a Congressional investigation? Gee, I’m so glad they have their priorities in order.
While they’re at it, maybe they can also investigate another equally unimportant topic, the brief thievery of Israeli Olympic windsurfer Gal Fridman’s Gold Medal, stolen by Arabs from the village of Fureidis. Whether it’s steroids or wasting billions of American taxpayer’s money on the Olympics, will somebody please tell the jock-wannabes in Congress to get out of the business of sports? So subcommittee chairman James Sensenbrenner represents Hamm as one of his constituents? Big deal. His subcommittee is supposed to be dealing with protecting our BORDERS from ILLEGAL ALIENS and the ACLU lawyers who lust for them. Not U.S. Olympians, who screwed up and benefited from faulty scoring, from South Korean Olympians, who didn’t.
