Olympic Stupidity

If you have watched any TV in the last couple of days, you can’t miss being beat over the head with the Winter Olympics in Canada. I accidentally watched a few minutes of the opening and that was all I could stomach. Never in my life have I heard such corny, unadulterated hype! It was silly to say the least… Do people actually buy this hyped up over blown romanticized BS? 

At one time I guess the Olympics could be taken seriously by the few muscle heads that enjoy such drivel, but now with all the high tech gear and commercialized hype it seems more like a sick comedy or soap opera. The poor idiot that got killed was a wasted life….what purpose is there in sliding on your but down a slick channel of ice? 

How can you consider these fools real amateur athletes? They spend their entire life from childhood being pushed and brainwashed like sled dogs to make other people billions in revenue. Someone has to be footing the bill to keep these dumb kids hypnotized into wasting their entire lives focusing on their own bodies. This is amateur? In times past it was countries like Russia that bred kids to be nothing but Olympic contenders for propaganda use. Now the US seems to be turning out jock robots to sell tampons, expensive cars and booze. 

What’s really bad, in this world people are starving and suffering and the money used and generated by the Olympics could save millions of lives. From old people locked up in clapboard shacks and filthy big city apartments owned by slum lords with no heat or food or medication; to poor children in third world countries dieing every day, their lives could be so greatly improved with just a portion of the money being spent in relation to the Olympics. 

Millionaires and the idle rich spending billions in plane tickets, booze and hotels to sit on their rumps and watch stupid little schmucks damn near kill themselves because they don’t know any better. Then millions more hypnotized in front of their TVs sucking in all the brain washing crud that is fed into them while their brains are slowly turning to mush. It’s a sickening sight. 

How do all these people let themselves be so suckered and obsessed with such pointless and idiotic ideology and commercial propaganda? Its just junkies watching junkies while the fat cats sell tickets and stuff people don’t need. 

I wouldn’t be surprised if I was arrested by this soul-less society for even speaking up. 

Go ahead and trash me all you want…. but now you know the whole world doesn’t buy this crap, there are a few of use with our own minds left out here!

 

I am not the only one I guess,  read this article from Newsweek:

Quote from George Orwell in “The Sporting Spirit,”
 
I am always amazed when I hear people saying that sport creates goodwill between the nations, and that if only the common peoples of the world could meet one another at football or cricket, they would have no inclination to meet on the battlefield. Even if one didn’t know from concrete examples (the 1936 Olympic Games, for instance) that international sporting contests lead to orgies of hatred, one could deduce it from general principles.”
