    I could give a rat's ass what Russian laws are concernging homosexuality. I don't agree with homosexuals being arrested simply because they are homosexuals, but it's their country. However, when they start threatening the safety of any gay athlete in the Olympics, yes, I think that should be boycotted. It's not about the "gay agenda" its about the safety of any Olympic athlete that's gay. If they change their tune, great. Otherwise, boycott their ass.

    Tell me, would you want the Olympics being held in a country that said "Women couldn't be athletes or they would be arrested, including foreign athletes"? I doubt you would, and I know I sure in the hell wouldn't.

    As for Snowden, while I want to see that little prick behind bars Russia is free to do what they like. How many Russian citizens did we take in that broke Soviet Laws? Plenty. My main concern with Snowden is I wonder if for "terms of asylum" he handed over his laptop and other media of classified material.

    Nope, he was a nice man, he was an honest man, but he was a lousy President. Admittedly that was a tough time, but his agenda was wrong.

    Thank you for being reasonable. And yes, some items on his agenda were wrong, but he did some things right that people tend to forget. Just image how much more powerful the US would be had the push towards generating renewable energy had the chance to develop?
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    I'd give him excellent grades on many areas of domestic policy, myself.

    His foreign policy not so much.

    Agreed. Though his foreign policy proved to be a big asset to his charity work.

    He was the first to try ME peace, but it eventually failed to materialize. Arafat was the wrong man, and didn't deserve a Peace Prize. Arafat was an instigator, not an administrator. He could never be part of a peaceful existence. So I give Carter credit for trying, but he was not a very good judge of character.

    That's actually a very good point by Fleming. It's kind of like watching a Broadway show that has a love interest. You know in real life that the guy couldn't possibly love her because he's boinking the guy next to her in real life.

    Versus what? Russia's last victory was over a country 35 times smaller than them. Tell me, how long did the wars in Chechnya last? A couple months before the 'Mighty' Russian military crushed them, or several years?


    Russia is a mess. A horrible crime rate, corruption at nearly every level. There's a reason Russian cars are so often carrying dash cameras.
