Is Politics (Socialism) Ruining the Olympics?

I've been hearing about the Olympics and how things have changed. Apparently the rules have been changed so that they (Olympics Committee) can only take the top two from each country to compete in the finals. So in the case of the USA, there are three girls, and only two can go. Jordy Weiber has been left out, a girl that made it third in her group, because although she is excellent, only 2 girls can go on to the finals. This is what the Olympics Committee are saying: Quote: "We want to spread the wealth. We want to spread sports to other parts of the world." Sounds like Obama right?


I am reading this and wondering what else is going to happen in the Olympics. Everything seems to be affected by Socialism and its just the beginning.

LOL! "Obama's ruining the Olympics!"

I can just imagine these people sitting around fretting and occasionally shouting, "Damn Obama!"

Wow.. so.. leveling the playing field so that each country has a fair shot at the gold is.. wrong?

The Olympics were terrible long before Obama.
Huge fuckin' waste of money for a few weeks of extreme nationalism and putting a city under martial law, and it's done every four years?

Excessively populous China should be able to field 40-80 Olympic level athletes per event.

"Wow.. so.. leveling the playing field so that each country has a fair shot at the gold is.. wrong?


Of course it is. This is a clear reflection of those narcissistic idiots out there who don't care a whiff about anyone less fortunate than them and only look out for what's best for themselves. Why should anyone who's not me benefit from my work, even if those other people could actually use some help?

I got to the third one before realising those weren't real. Not because I'm that gullible, but because the Tea Party is that batshit.

Pretty sure Obama is left-handed tho? Too lazy to google.

You wouldn't know socialism if it handed control of the means of production to you.

Everything these raptards dont like, is "socialism" by default.

The olympics meanwhile, are still an elitist celebration of the privlege of wealth. (ie: capitalist), and now with corporate sponsorship.

Oh, and O'Bama is a corporate stooge.

Yep. America decides what the Olympic committee does. /sarcasm.

@mouse: he is, he is also a smoker. 2 things against the hitler comparison...

I'm pretty sure my kindergarten teacher told me to be fair and give everyone the same chance to play. TIL she was a socialist. lol freaks.

Oh My Dog!

You folks certainly like to make some strange connections.

We want to spread sports to other parts of the world

The Olympics are an international thing, you do realize this don't you?

Severe drought in the midwest...Obama's fault.

My slow internet connection...Obama's fault

Dinosaurs going extinct...Obama's fault

Yes, it's all Obama's fault

Yes, I bet it does seem that way to you. Why do you suppose that is?

8/10/2012 6:02:27 PM


Has this guy even looked at the corporate sponsors of the games? Granted they're not quite the 1996 Coca-Cola games, but "socialism?"

8/11/2012 4:24:23 PM


I stubbed my toe! Damn Socialist table leg!
