Lance Armstrong in One Word

As for the true name of his organization…

    I have two words to describe Lance Armstrong:

    Giant Douche.

    Phew, first I thought the Muslim world would be behind this.

    Phew, first I feared the Muslim world would be behind this.

    • Timmy

      Actually, the so-called Muslim world wouldn't be able to figure out th science involved in blood doping or other experimental athletic aids. It is a lie that they ever ruled the world in science, and as is obvious to anyone who can see, they are still utterly incompetent in all things requiring advanced science or learning. Islam destroys individuals, communities, countries, entire civilizations. Fact is, even in his disgraced state, Lance Armstrong is still a better person than he would be if he became a Muslim.

    So many people I've spoken with, regarding Armstrong, have summed their comments up with, "Well, he did so much good for so many…". Yes, he sure did. So do a lot of people/foundations. He also chose to cheat and lie, for years, and accepted many accolades falsely. He arrogantly led the world to believe that he won his races, fair and square, when he knew he didn't. To me that cancels out any good he might've done. It's a sad example of how this society is so willing to give someone a pass, simply because they did some good in the world, even as their character unravels. Do we not value morality anymore?

    I disapprove what Lance Armstrong did by using doping.Having said that: I like to point out
    that more than 90% of all the professional bikers took some kind of doping,like epo or other.
    Still from all those dope addicts Armstrong was still the best of them all.
    Starting the tour de France without some dope in your body you would have been a loser
    from the start. It is all about big ; very big money grabbing.

      That's the thing about EPO, is really is easy to get away with it. The levels they allow are up to 50% and after a particular amount of EPO is injected, it can be reasonably predicted how long the effects will be high. If my levels were 40% and I was in a 2 week race, I could time when to take the injection boosting to 49%. Later in that day, I could administer a test at home to make sure the levels held below 50%
      . If I messed up and went over, I would than have to avoid any potential tests until the next afternoon. When I was cycling in the early to mid 90's it was prevalent, but so were guys who just retired a year or two earlier dying of heartattacks
      . I was on a plan for only a month because a-I realized I wasn't going to stay in the sport and was honoring my contract b- I saw guys I had once admired having major health issues because at the time there was less knowledge on how to get it right.

    • Mary Sue

      It's not the doping that people are so pissed off about. It's the lives he ruined by falsely suing people.

      • Parenthetical Phrase

        Excellent point, Mary Sue!

      • Barb

        I agree, to an extent with you, Mary Sue. I would be livid if I had been a victim of his lawsuits, without a doubt, and would counter-sue immediately. However, I am still disgusted with how he cheated and lied, and accepted awards under false circumstances. I know a lot of cyclists and athletes dope, but that doesn't mean it's right or acceptable. It's not even the actual doping itself, that irks me. It's his total disregard for anyone who looked up to him, and towards anyone who dared to question the almighty Lance Armstrong, that made me despise this guy. I find his behavior not far from how a sociopath might think. It's stuff like that, I can't get past.

  • leeward

    so its okay as long as you keep the company of dopers and cheaters
    lack of ethics and principles is never ok, nor is justifying them.

  • Drifter

    Dopeing is and was wrong. But at least Lance did some good with his money. So lets show a little mercy here.

    Hey Bosch, I am happy to see your great artistic talent back again on a David Horowitz site and I hope to see many more of your works of art in the future….

      Thanks, waltjr

    Armstrong is a fraud and cheat. He would be a perfect fit for a position in the Obama administration.

    • JacqueShellaque

      Nah! Too much of an individualist and go-getter American.

  • Alex Kovnat

    As good a reason as any for the DHFC to uphold honest-to-goodness academic freedom is, what if some professor wants to write a book about Lance Armstrong that, while not approving of what he did, reminds us that bicycle racing was not honest to begin with at the time L.A. first started in that sport? In other words, although LA was corrupt, it was the system that corrupted him as much as the other way around.

    Perhaps too it was our fault, as society, that we hunger so much for athletic heroes that when a guy like Lance wins several races in a row after supposedly having been at death's door from cancer, nobody wants to ask if perhaps something was amiss. This happened too, with Bernard Madoff.

    Bosch Fawstin: This is perfect.

  • FPF

    I believe many athletes went through unnatural physical enhancement treatment during their career and many didn't get caught. But how many like Armstrong have the courage to confess to public and risk destroying his image in front of his son? His cancer history may be the result of his utilization of such substance. If he really repents, why not forgive him? I'd say anyone who did not lie once in his lifetime can criticize him here.

  • Jake Tobias

    I don't know anything about what is involved in checking the oxygen levels in ones blood, and I don't want to know. But he had too much OXYGEN in his blood??? Talk about an "invasive" exam. Oh, just a simple test, right? Give me a break. The whole regime is invasive! The training, AND the testing. Especially the testing. Athletes must feel like children, or worse, criminals, always having to prove they are not guilty of taking advantage of medical science. A science deliberately researched in order to enhance athletic performance! Is everyone crazy?!??

    I couldn't agree more with your first picture,Mr. Fawstin. I disagree with your second picture but not your first.
