Vladimir Putin and the Horror at Canada House
Why are you even surprised, Simon? The fact that they are involved in the ‘owe-limp-icks’ tells you everything you need to know..they probably shop at MalWarts, and accept endorsement money from any PR hack from any company (can you say ‘Nike?) that gets waved in their faces..These people aren’t about making a statement re homophobia, dictatorships or anything else..the last time the Olympics showed any class at all was Berlin, 1936…since then it’s been nothing but a money-pit for taxpayers. Every time someone is shilling for our money for ‘athletes’ I want to vomit..Our tax dollars should never go to these hyped-up corporate welfare wannabes..
The extent of their ambition is to win a medal, not for their ‘country’ or their personal satisfaction, but so that they can get lucrative endorsement deals..just like the pros, except that we are asked to support them financially unless and until this economic windfall, minus anything like a conscience, comes through due to their good looks or ability to do something a fraction of a second faster than someone else…really?
This Western First World cult of celebrity is nothing more than a substitute for that other opiate, organized religion..and why be shocked and appalled that it’s ‘disciples’ are constantly shilling for mo’ money? Isn’t that what televangelists do in the name of their mythical gods?
