  • Russia has such a homophobic political agenda that other political dictionaries(dignitaries) feel they have to chime in....your absolutely correct, it's not about the politics it's about the athletes, and it doesn't matter what their private lives are about either, it's about their talent and gift to be able to represent their team, being at the top of their game in sports...they have more talent in their pinkies then politicians have in their whole lives, unless were talking about the gift of gab or technical aspects of political deception, they need to stay out of it, besides the way they are going we have all just about had enough of the do nothings. If they were doing their job they wouldn't have time to chime in at all.

  • Guess I was "wired" last night but when I overheard that on the nightly news, it just turned my stomach.

    These athletes have more than likely given up a lot of their young life to compete and succeed on such a high level. It should all be about them.

  • It's also a little media hype I think...The poor "Duck Dynasty Guy" is getting beat up now...before long he might even visit Putin like Dennis Rodman is visiting North Korea...my grandmother would have said "it's a look at me child's play".......your not alone my friend, I think it turns us all a little sick, especially when you can see right through their motive!
