    Without some unified approach such as a mid-term convention, the party not POTUS will gain. And that is before Voting Rights Abuses, many aimed at the kids. I'm surprised Snowden isn't coming up. This would be a better cover for the RINO Obama.

    No it would not.
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    I say Olympics should be boycotted from being kept in Russia as a protest. They would lose a lot of potential income because of their foolish laws.

    I assume you mean a pin that says something like "gay pride"?

    What if our athletes don't have any gay pride? I know I don't. And if some decided to make fools of themselves in front of TV cameras in an overzealous attack of gayness or stupidity and get arrested, what is our incompetent President to do? Send the incompetent John Kerry over there to make things worse? Send Hillary Clinton over on a special assignment to insult them and fall flat on her face yet again?

    This is all a nonissue as long as special interest groups don't make it one. There will be no problems as long as people follow the law over there for a couple of weeks. But I suspect those that place sex in front of everything will want to create and design as many problems and cause as much trouble as they can. They do it on other issues. This one won't be much different for them.
