Ron ( god all mighty I can't believe I'm actually trying to communicate....) what would you say was the highlight of the 1936 Olympics, by anyones standard?

Thats right, you guys sending a Black man to shove Hitlers own face up his own ass.


One can only hope that in this case, not only america will do the same, but every country that has any guts to make a statement against bigotry and oppression in a country that has the nerve to use the Olympics to claim otherwise

Do a bit of research before condemning Obama for not going to the Olympics:

WASHINGTON - President Bush is so emphatic about going to the Olympics in China that one might think flying halfway around the globe to attend the games is what presidents do.

But never before has an American leader shown up at an Olympics on foreign soil. And Bush is doing more than just dropping by. He is planning to soak in as much as he can, with large blocs on his Beijing schedule devoted to watching athletes compete.

Maybe the gay delegation is a bit of an insult, but not attending the games is not a meaningful event. Bush was the only one to do it and only that one time. It would be unusual for Obama to attend, and probably a security nightmare for him.

Bullwinkle,ill have you know , since the time i discovered Linda Perry was a lesbian i have been mad at them all. POPPED my bubble that.

But that isnt the point here. Its obama continuing the decline of the USA abroad is what it is really. Weve seen russian diplomats using the NUKE word recently too. This is just a political dig. It is obvious to all but a blind man.

Ron, the foreign policy genius. It's a wonder the State Dept. doesn't have a hot line to his house.

The President made the right call regarding he Olympics. He has not attended any others.
And Ron, he has made the US much safer. You're wrong again.

Ron -answer my question. In fact I'm upgrading my assessment of Jesse Owens dropping his drawers and defecating on the Nazi flag one of the finest Olympic moments of the 20th century.

Can you explain exactly what the difference is with Obama and his "lesbos" as you so contemptuously call them?

First Bruce, i call a friend a lesbo all the time and she prefers it that way.. So it must be YOUR feminine side twitching there.

As for obamas move it was cheap imo. Do ANY OF YOU remember just months back when he told NBC that he would strike Syria even without congressional approval? I hope the hell you do. Because he was going to strike RUSSIAN concerns. Why do you THINK the russians now talk about NUCLEAR responses to conventional aggression's? He has respun the wheels of the cold war and done nicely at it.

Fine - don't answer.

Let me tell you something aszhole, If we were in the same room right now I would have to exercize some restraint to avoid removing all three of your front teeth. I have lesbian friends and you clearly consider them as inferior to yourself and you are not shy about it.

Unless I am somehow mistaken? Explain.

Eat crap Bruce...

I NEVER inferred lesbians are LESS than me or anyone else. I said they do represent a sexuality minority which is fakt. I said they are a slap to Russia and that is also fact.

How does that differ from Owens and Hitler- not much. But then we ended up going to war with Hitler. Wanna go to war with Putin???

My Lesbo friend would kick the arses of all yurzzz...nanner nanner...

Your a SNAG of the first order...

Have you ever thought of going to A&E to start a reality TV series? You could call it entrails and homophobia Dynasty.

Bruce, I had a few friends who rented their places to the fuzz as well. Pretty sweet deal, I wish I woulda jumped on it but there was no way in hell I could get outta work for the month of feb. let alone during Olympics.

As for athletes village, a friend had the contract to frame them all. They seriously got to screw the pooch & took their sweet ass time, making sure to milk it for all it was worth. Deep pockets surround the Olympics like not many other things in this world.

BTW feb 2010 was some of the greatest times I ever had on Whistler mountain, ski tourists were non existent. La Niņa delivered heaps of pow & we had the hill to ourselves the entire time. Creekside was closed but there was an increased bus service (every 4 min) so I spent the month riding the south western aspects to the valley & catching the bus back to the village. We renamed $1,000,000 ridge $2 ridge & got to break a lot of trail into a lot of usually beat down, Aussie pillaged runs. Some great fun I wouldn't have traded for any amount of cash now that I think about it.



The thing that's funny is that Sochi is a summer resort, they might not even have any snow!

Into the xmas rum a little early sketch?


There's no surprise whats going on in Russia. It is after all one of the finest examples of right wing authoritarianism leveraging entrenched religious bigotry, ignorance and an adoration of cohersive force.

Please refer to your own Olympic thread to see how the majority view Russian politics ... which curiously enough mirrors Duck politics.

Dude, you can't be serious. Do you really think the majority of Americans
think that Russian politics is even remotely as important as Duck politics?
SHEESH!

And, furthermore, being a geographer I distinctly recall a poll done of
US college juniors which showed that only 40% could find Moscow on a map.

The real question about the Winter Olympics, as usual, is if team Canada is going to kick USA or Russkie ass in the gold medal hockey game.
