    It's communal. The Olympic Athletes from the US don't own it either.

    I'm sorry, but I'm failing to see whatever point you're trying to make.
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    How are our kids being threatened?
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    America still has plenty of issues to deal with at home than seeking those on a foreign shore.

    We should not ask those who worked so hard to sacrifice just so one President can get a few measly beanies.

    We are not between a rock and a hard place. You are the one advocating putting our hand between the grist and the millstone. Maybe you mean well, but the outcome will not benefit the gays in Russia.
    The gays in Russia have to take their stand, we have to take ours.

    The State Department can choose to deny the athletes their visas but I believe that it would just be a little mean.
