The Houston Astros were punished in a severe way for cheating to win the 2017 World Series. Major League Baseball suspended the team’s manager and GM for a year. They took away the Astros’ top two draft picks for the next two years. They also fined the team $5 million.
And then the Astros fired the manager and GM who led them to a World Series win.
That’s how you deal with cheaters — short of a prison term. That’s how you send a message that cheating will not be tolerated. That’s how you prevent the next scandal. Bravo.
Government reacts the opposite way: It covers up scandals. It buries the story in collusion with its media buddies. It condones cheating — by liberals who support big government.
Enter former President Barack Obama. Obama and I were born days apart in 1961. He became my college classmate. We both went into politics. When Obama ran for president on the 2008 Democrat ticket, I ran as vice president on the Libertarian presidential ticket.
But we are different in one major way: I am diametrically opposed to every policy Obama has ever stood for. I believe Obama was among the worst presidents in American history. I believe his administration was among the most corrupt in history.
I’m shocked and disgusted that Obama got away with it all, but he had the biased, liberal mainstream media on his side.
