Nobody's Opinion

Lindsey Graham Wants Us to Pull out of the Olympics?

Nobody Knows–

How telling our American Olympics Athletics that by NOT going to the Olympics they will punish Putin for not giving back Snowdom to the United States. Like, Putin is really going to care. If the United States pulls out of the Olympics it only makes us look weaker than we already do.

Putin will laugh and say we were too scared to compete. And yes…Putin is the macho guy on the world stage now and the sad truth is we don’t have a Ronald Reagan to stand up to him. And Reagan would have stood up to him by INCREASING our nuclear arsenal. Lindsey Graham complains about Syria, and Iran, and WHY is that happening?

Because we have Barack Obama for President. It’s why Putin didn’t return Snowdon. He is all about power. Masculine power. And he wants to show off. And yes, he will show off at the Olympics.

CNN) — Russia is in the midst of its biggest war games since Soviet times, with 160,000 troops, 130 planes, 70 ships and thousands of tanks and armored vehicles participating in the country’s Far East, according to media reports.

So, Lindsey is afraid that Putin will show off his ‘strength’ at the Olympic games? What did we see in China?Putin war games

“If you could go back in time, would you have allowed Adolf Hitler to host the Olympics in Germany? To have the propaganda coup of inviting the world into Nazi Germany and putting on a false front?” Graham told NBC.

He said he’s “not saying that Russia is Nazi Germany.”

“But I am saying that the Russian government is empowering some of the most evil, hateful people in the world,” he said.

The Olympics are more about the government elites showing off how much money they can spend to impress everyone else on the planet, rather than the athletics getting together and just competing themselves. It would be better if they just picked two countries, charged a cheap fee, and have it at the same spot every year, because they spent billions of taxpayers money putting on these big shows. Look what happened to Greece. Look what is happening in Brazil, people are protesting the politicians spending so much money:

For the most part, research on mega-events believes they make a negligible (or unidentifiable) impact on long-term economic growth. “If a city is using an expectation of a financial windfall as justification for hosting the Olympics, past experience suggests that the host will be in for a rude awakening,” writes Victor Matheson, an economics professor at the College of the Holy Cross in Massachusetts, in the New York Times.

Likewise, the notion that mega-events lead to wild tourist influxes is largely a fallacy. The number of foreign tourists who visited the United Kingdom last August – the month in which the majority of the Games were held – actually fell by 150,000 people compared with same month the year prior. In Beijing, “the Olympic Games were a toxic event that crushed normal demand, both business and leisure,” said a 2010 report from the European Tour Operators Association.

On the bright side, some would argue that mega-events force governments to tackle much-needed infrastructure projects, like improvements to mass transit – something that Brazil’s protesters clearly want. Construction projects costing billions are tied to Brazil’s World Cup and Olympic vision, but as we’ve seen before, the country has a checkered history in making good on its promises.

All the mothers and fathers who sacrificed dental work, eyeglasses, new cars, new houses, and then spent years of their lives trying to help their kids grow up be champions, I’m sure, will be really pissed off when the U.S. pulls. out.

As I remember, Jesse Owens was a smash hit at Hitler’s games.

If John McCain and Lindsey Graham are pissed off at Putin, don’t take it out on our Olympic Athletics. take it out on the man who Putin thinks is a pushover: Obama.

  1. I got pissed at the mere mention of the RINO Grahamnesty and started to go on a lengthy rant, but I’ll save the spittle flecked keyboard for another day.
    This I will point out; Snowden brought to light the extensive spying Uncle Sam does on citizens and other governments. I need someone to point out if Snowden is a traitor or hero on that deal I don’t have enough info. So asylum for him? Who cares?
    Grahamnesty on the other hand wants to grant de facto asylum amnesty to 11 million? 30 million? Who most definitely will include ( insert repugnant human description here), and he’s pissed at Putin over Snowden!
    Graham needs to take some testosterone supplements and get over his Putin induced penis envy.
