It would be strange to boycott these games after not having boycotted the 1936 Hitler Games.  Would be REALLY weird....

 

But we did boycott the 1980 games.  Go figure.

 

:rolleyes:

Russians film brutal video of attack on transgender woman

 

I did not watch the video, but still shots are disturbing enough.

So, if telling the gay and lesbian community to STFU wasn't enough, now Putin is telling everyone to STFU......

Seems like common sense to want to keep a major event like this free from outside activities that could interfere with the safety and security of the games, the participants and the fans.  It's nothing new.

Glad we are not boycotting the Olympics.

 

I heard Putin does not care that many people do not like their Anti Gay laws.  Putin only concern is terrorism attack.

 

 

 

While there are problems with equipment like bathrooms etc...  I feel the Olympics fails are a sneak peak into Communism.

I am surprised that you have not seen these.  These are all over twitter and I have seen quite a few stories on how poorly construction and services are for the Olympics.  See the following two articles and or the images from the below articles.

These pictures are sourced from Twitter but I did not see them there, I found them from the articles I copy and pasted.

 

But I did hear about these types of things happening on Twitter.  then I googled it and found this article.

I am implying this, yes.  Is it right? probably not, but that is also the sentiment in other media outlets.

 

A, eh, tis good enough (with terrible russian accent).  :lol:

Oh - silly me.

If other media outlets say it's true, then it must be true!

The Olympics and World Cup just suck public money for private profit in the name of sportsmanship.  A joke.
