You Shouldn’t Be Surprised Lance Armstrong Doped & Lied

Really. Nobody should be surprised that Lance Armstrong doped and lied about it. Why? Well, let’s look at the guy’s history …

Exhibit A: He left his wife of 5 years (who had born him 3 children) for singer-songwriter, Sheryl Crow. In fact, he began dating Crow very shortly after he filed for divorce with his wife.

Exhibit B: He left Sheryl Crow about 2 years after that.

Exhibit C: 2 years after breaking up with Crow, he announced his new girlfriend, Anna Hansen, was pregnant.

Now, if a guy is willing to treat his wives and girlfriends that way, why not a competitor? Why not a business associate? A sponsor? A friend?

I’m not saying all divorcees are dishonest or bad people. Obviously, that’s not the case. There are perfectly good and justifiable reasons for ending a marriage.

But when a person has a track record of cheating or abandoning those he professes to care about … those he’s sworn to love, honor, and care for until death do them part … that’s a glaring red flag.

This popular fiction that just because a person’s personal life is messy doesn’t mean their business life is tainted (or vice-versa) is quite frankly a fairy-tale.

A liar is a liar, is a liar, is a liar. It makes no difference whether they’re lying to family members, political constituents, fans, business partners, clients, or coworkers.

Don’t be surprised when a liar lies to you. Don’t be astounded when a cheater cheats.

Anyway.

That’s my two cents.

My hope and prayer is that this scandal doesn’t negatively impact LiveStrong too much. They’re a wonderful organization run by many good people. I’m so sorry for them having to cope with this. It’s got to be a nightmare.

Taxes: What George Harrison & The Beatles Thought

Let me tell you how it will be,
There’s one for you, nineteen for me,
‘Cause I’m the taxman. Yeah, I’m the taxman.

Should five per cent appear too small
Be thankful I don’t take it all,
‘Cause I’m the taxman! Yeah, I’m the taxman.

If you drive a car, I’ll tax the street,
If you try to sit, I’ll tax your seat,
If you get too cold I’ll tax the heat,
If you take a walk, I’ll tax your feet!

Don’t ask me what I want it for (Aahh Mr. Wilson)
If you don’t want to pay some more (Aahh Mr. Heath)
‘Cause I’m the taxman. Yeah, I’m the taxman.

Now my advice for those who die,
Declare the pennies on your eyes!
‘Cause I’m the taxman. Yeah, I’m the taxman.

And you’re working for no one but me.
