Yay!! - Another Meaningless Olympics Games Are Over

~ Rio's poor slum-dwellers watching the Oympics spectacle from afar

It's a Monday in mid-August and happily those rotten, awful Summer Olympics are over

We've always hated the Olympics - All the nations of the world gathering together and pretending to like one another as 5 nations gobble up 90% of all the medals and the event usually economically destroys the home nation who hosts it

Summer.. Winter.. does not matter
NBC will always find a way to shit up the coverage by making the sports entertainment as non-sports focused as possible.  Targeted demographics show women need back-stories and 'feel good' moments in order to watch

Real sports programming advertise beer and trucks; the Olympics advertise family SUVs, cosmetics and fabric softener

Hard to ever take this bullshit event seriously when the Lebanese Olympic team can get away with denying Israeli athletes board their bus without repercussion or some other Muslim piece of shit from Egypt yells 'allah akbar' before a match with an Israeli in judo which is what terrorists exclaim before they murder
There's a quote from the Oscar winning film Gladiator we always think of during sports spectacles like Olympics, World Cup and Super Bowl meant to entertain and distract the masses from all things of importance.

The Senator speaking to another refers to the Roman Emperor staging 150 days of games and all the money diverted to the purpose instead of helping his people in need --

"I think he knows what Rome is. Rome is the mob. He will conjure magic for them and they will be distracted. He will take away their freedom, and still they will roar. The beating heart of Rome is not the marble floor of the Senate, it is the sand of the Colosseum. He will give them death, and they will love him for it."

You don't think amateur and professional sports are condoned and promoted across the globe by accident or mere will of the people do you?
In 1912, twenty eight nations met in Stockholm, Sweden to participate in the Summer Olympics.   All those  participants oblivious to the social, economic and political tensions of the countries of their allegiance toward one another as they pretended they were above it all..

The 1916 "Olympics" were held in the muddy, bloody trenches at the Somme, among other Western and Eastern front locales.

It is not just America that is very bad economic shape..

In western Canada, the economies of (Calgary & Edmonton) Alberta and Vancouver (British Columbia) is plunging thanks to continually low oil prices which popped their real estate bubble, effecting the rest of the nation that somehow escaped the economic pain of the 2008 global crash.
In Germany the continued simmering tensions from the people being forced to taken in these inferior Muslims from Syria and other nations as they work to destroy the social and economic fabric of the nation is slowly reaching a real breaking point..

For the first time since the end of the Cold War, the German government is publicly telling its citizens to stockpile food and water in case of an attack or catastrophe (Muslim, no doubt) and the German Federal Bank (Bundesbank) said in its monthly report on Monday that by 2060 Germany should increase the retirement age to 69 from the current 65.

The rest of Europe is still a complete mess...
As we wrote earlier, Brazil is in its worst economic recession in 80 years and will continue to suffer thanks to the billions Wasted by hosting these Games along with the 2014 World Cup.

Brazil's national debt is $709.5 Billion when converted into US dollars which seems low in comparison to our nearly $20 Trillion but 28% of their GDP is debt and their yearly interest alone is over $71 billion..  Understand, that's annual Interest on debt!

Over in Asia, Japan's economy is still in a 2 decade-plus rut and are in the process of wasting billions more dollars (or trillions more Yen) as they prepare to host the 2020 Summer Games.  $7.3 Billion is already earmarked and historically, ALL games cost more than expected

China which hosted the Summer Games in 2012 will be hosting the Winter games in 2018 as they continue to devalue their currency

Who said Asians are always smart?
Did you know Boston had made a serious attempt to host the 2024 Summer Games here in the US?

However, US Olympic Committee killed Boston's 2024 Summer Olympics bid barely six months after backing it when public support for the bid dissipated over concerns about cost overruns and new construction.

The final straw came when Boston's correctly refused to immediately sign the standard host-city contract that puts taxpayers on the hook for any cost overruns.

Had Boston been chosen, taxpayers would have been on the hook for at least $5 billion and that's simply estimated totals.
So many problems around the world that could politically, economically or militarily blow up into something global and so many oblivious.

Just want our fun and games and summer vacation

Which normally is nice and good but after nearly 8 years of that mulatto parasite in the White House, the nation and world is in a really bad mess

The rich keep getting richer, the corporations keep getting stronger and those in the middle classes keep getting screwed..
As long as there's American football and global football (soccer) and baseball and basketball and hockey and NASCAR and golf and MMA (mixed martial arts) and Olympics and every other sport under the sun, people will gravitate attention to that

Sports is the great Distraction; it allows people easy escape from reality while being a conduit to sell everything from product to ideas; from soft drinks and sneakers to concepts like imaginary globalist Utopian concepts like tolerance, coexistence, cooperation and peace

Which is nice..

If it wasn't so incredibly untrue.
