So like, now its all fun and games that the olympics are starting.
Are the human rights issues actually still being discussed at all?
:shrug:

Seems like now that everyone had his little anti-chinese moment, people are going back to looking forward to the games, advertising their products, looking forward to making money off of it. Where is the enduring movement to expose those games as the hoax that they are?

1. I'm personally boycotting the Olympics
Not a second of them will grace my television. Then again I always boycott the olympics.

2. I have never missed the Summer
Olympics, particularly the track and swimming, since I was a kid ( I still remember Ali and the Rome Olympics). This is the first time I simply won't watch any of it.

3. The games are not a hoax
They weren't a hoax when they were in Nazi germany either.

Supporting the athletes =/= supporting the heinous Chinese regime.

I have a friend who is on the Olympic Team, and there is nothing hoaxlike about her and what she went through to make the team.

I will watch it, and simultaneously condemn the Chinese Govt.

But they aint a hoax
