The Olympics: An Olympic-Sized Scam
By Jack Perry
August 11, 2016

*** begin quote ***

So, no, I’m not watching the Olympics. And I don’t care about them. The world should be embarrassed by them. Especially holding them in a city with an astonishing poverty problem. So, stop lecturing. Haven’t you guys got another music video you can make millions off of and donate that money to a charity where the CEO makes a $500,000 per year salary? Didn’t think I knew about the “compassion scam”, did you? Oh, yes, I know what you liberals pay yourselves to guilt us into giving you money to “help” people you exploit the very real suffering of. I won’t name names, but there are several charities that are supposed to help the poor but help themselves even more as far as salaries go. Who do you think you are? The Pentagon?

*** end quote ***

What a shame. For TV ratings and “national pride”?

It’s an idea who’s time has past.

There is no peace during the “games”. No honesty — see doping and bribery. And, no “pride” in our pros beating their pros.

Or, how you can explain to the poor boy, who was in the opening parade, can’t get a ticket.

Or to the poor who see the opulence while they live in squalor.
