red flag Olympics

I am over the Olympics already and really, they have barely begun. I realize this is a slightly un-American viewpoint-but that's part of the problem to me. I am mad because it is China, saluting China and all their human rights errors. I am mad because it gives G.W. Bush a platform to be all "he, he, he, I am the president of the greatest nation in the world and if those Chinese would just get religion all would be better for them!! and shame on Russia for all that naughty violence...!! more he, he, he's" I even think Bob Costas couldn't believe rambling Mr. Bush. And my third complaint against the Olympics is that it really isn't an even playing field. Some countries can afford to pay their Olympic athletes, some cannot, some practice under extreme condition like the swimmer who has been training without an Olympic size pool. I just don't think the smaller countries come out ahead. Well, and the fourth thing is what a lot of money for pomp and look-at-me fireworks...the money spent on the opening ceremony alone could have brought good feng shui and food to many Chinese workers.
