The 2008 Olympics are going to be damned joke.

There is a ton of messed up crap going on in this years Olympics.

I feel bad for all the athletes who trained so hard only to get gypped into going into a messed up country like China. I dunno who I dislike more. The Olympic committee that didn't take China's pollutions problems into consideration or the US corporations who have allowed China's ruling class to destroy their own country with pollution and ignorance.

So besides the obvious air pollution issues there is a bunch of messed up crap that going to possible ruin the games.

For some insane reason China won't allow countries to bring food for the athletes. This means that they will have to eat Chinese food which even by the lowest standards is sub-par.

A US caterer said this about the chicken "We had it tested and it was so full of steroids that we never could have given it to athletes. They all would have tested positive,"

It's a damn shame. Chinese protein sources are also full of insecticides and illegal veterinary medication. If you think the problems of Chinese goods shipped to the US are bad just consider what kind of shit they are serving to their own people. It's a lot worse than the stuff the US gets.

They are even having trouble getting enough ice for the competitors.

Such a shame for the athletes.

I thought the Athens Olympics were pretty good...?

e mascot was pretty messed up...

I mean would it had been any better if they had it in Rome?

Of course you had to be saddled with all that debt and building that might never get used again...

The debt, the police getting all brave, all the buildings built by public money being then offered to capitalist for free, 13 dead immigrant workers, at least 2 ecologically unique places destroyed, over-spending and a nice bunch of scandals... Ah, yes, those were the days... At least people finally understood what a bad idea this crime was. Now they bitch... Assholes, I'm afraid.

Oh, and I don't think the Italians are that stupid. Besides, I had the Olympics and everything they represent, especially since Hitler created their still-unchanged modern version.
