    Senator Pushing Toward Tobacco ban in the MLB

    Are you kidding? Does worthless Dick Durbin not realize there are bigger pieces of the puzzle to deal with? And why is it any of his business what a professional baseball player does to his body?

    What is riskier? Rubbing a bit of tobacco while playing baseball or having the government send you to Afghanistan?

    Dick, I urge you to bring our soldiers home.

    Durbin is a slimy little weasel, there seems to be no freedom in this country he wants to leave alone. I cannot stand that dirtbag.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    This is preposterous. With all of today's problems, this is nothing.

    And the worst thing about it is he's using the "it's for the children" argument, that is such a ridiculously overused logical fallacy it's actually become a cliche.

    See, once you refuse to tell government to shove its rules up its ass, they know they always come back for more.

    Instead of getting a pie and throwing it at Durbin, perhaps a few dozen industrial chaw chewers should grab some Beechnut, Redman and others, spit into a bucket for a week or two and give Durbin a nice chaw-shower at his next public event. I think that'll get the message across to him.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Durbin is pretty thick headed it appears, I don't think any contrarial ideas would ever get through.

    If 5 gallons of tabakki spit didn't get through to him, nothing would.
