Are you out of your f--king mind? Another Olympics boycott?! Give me a
break! The Olympics are *not* a political replacement for war! So take your
whining about "Anti-American Pinko-Commie propaganda" elsewhere. Maybe someone
forget to tell you, but Communism is dead (for all practical purposes).
And as for communist judges favoring their athletes. Well, yeah, and I
would have to say that every judge from every country will show bias toward his
countrymen, regardless of what you think.
As for a boycott? You're looking at the Olympics as a way to make a
political statement. It's not about politics, it's about people. As an
individual training for the 1996 Olympic Team, I would be *pissed* if *any*
country boycotted, simply because it would be another instance where politics
rudely intervenes in pesonal lives.
Let's say, hypothetically, that I do well in the 1996 Olympics, and
decide that I want to make the 2000 Team. The 2000 Summer Games will be held in
Australia. Let's say that sometime in the next 6 years, Australia and the U.S.
have a major falling out, and the U.S. Government calls for a boycott. You know
what I'd do? Find a different team - other athletes have done it.
Before you start screaming that I am a communist traitor, consider
this: I spent the last 2.5 years of my life serving Uncle Sam in the Army, and
was granted a security clearance. Knowing how well they go through your life
before giving you that clearance, I think it's safe to say that I'm not a
So take your silly boycott whining someplace else, where people
actually give a damn.
