The only thing worse than spending money on this debacle was the verdict.

GOOD!!!

I don’t care if he lied to Congress or anybody else
about what he put in his body.

This has been a trumped up charge and prosecution, to DISTRACT us from the fact that OBAMA IS STEALING OUR COUNTRY!!!!!

So, if lying to Congress is a crime, when does the trial of Eric Holder start?

Congress lies to us everyday. Why should we care if someone lies to them?

I view this as the jury saying “go get doing something useful” to the Feds. Frankly, I believe Clemons was guilty of perjury. on some counts. Not that I care. I really don’t.

Unfortunately, this probably means they are going to clean Zimmerman’s clock.

There is no doubt that that roided-out douchebag cheat Clemens lied to congress, but I don't know why congress ever felt that it was their job to ask him those questions.

And let’s hope that they get some competent prosecutors/litigators installed when the time comes for mass trials of the Obama cronies....

Let Major League Baseball police its own mess. Congress has no business interfering in private affairs.

This was another example of congress and the courts wasting the taxpayers money on issue that was best handled by the industry.

Now I wonder about all of them sportswriters that have said they will never vote for Roger to join the Hall of Fame .
