As if the government has nothing better to do…

Afghanistan costs the American taxpayer $57,000 a minute.  The national debt is at $13 trillion and shows no signs of slowing down.  Our foreign obligations cost the American taxpayer over $1 trillion dollars a year and the deficit is at $2 trillion dollars and climbing.

Now with that said, Armando Galarraga was on his way to pitching a perfect game…that was until umpire Jim Joyce botched a call and called Cleveland Indians Jason Donald safe at first.  Galarraga accepted Joyce’s apology and now there is talk of Major League Baseball instituting a replay examination system like that of the NFL.  You would think that would be the end of it.  A one-hitter game, human error, no feelings hurt, and baseball will take care of it.  The world keeps spinning.

Not on the guv’ments watch.

Rep. John D. Dingell, Democrat of Michigan, today announced that he plans to introduce a resolution calling on Major League Baseball to reverse its decision not to award Detroit Tigers pitcher Armando Galarraga a perfect game.

Galarraga was robbed of a perfect game by a blown call by umpire Jim Joyce with two outs in the ninth inning….

Now I like baseball, in fact, I like to catch a professional game as often as I can, but this goes beyond ridiculous.  I’m a Cincinnati Reds fan and even if this happened to them I would say, “stay out of America’s past time, Big Brother!”
