    Products do not give an athlete an edge. Technology does. There are many examples of this:
    1) wood to carbon tennis racquets
    2) steel to aluminum bikes
    3) swimsuits to wetsuits

    All athletes have changed their gear to keep up with the Jonses. Yet no one has claimed they jumped higher because of a pair of Air Jordans.

You know, they’re standing there with no clothes. ‘Is everybody OK?’ And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.”

    Because they CAN all choose the same equiptment if they want it...they are given a choice because whats good for me may not be good for you..your not taking anyones right to anything away your just giving them a choice..

    "Doping" is a fairly complex issue in terms of what is legal, what is not, what is detectable and what is not. Basically anything a person ingests is a "drug," meaning some metabolic effect. For example, oxygenating the blood increases speed, power, endurance - yet oxygen isn't on the drug list.

    Libertarianism sorely lacks integrity.
    The morality of abortion is not a religious belief, any more than the morality of slavery, apartheid, rape, larceny, murder or arson is a religious belief. These are norms of the natural law of mankind and can be legislated even in a completely religionless society.

    You may call it that, but I call it non-judging and minding my own business.
