    Sorry, but the gay agenda is NOT what our country stands for.

    Why not? If it is not the US flag which is a petty protest BTW. The athletes can at least be seen as being from the States and the President can get his beanies a win/win deal.

    Tell me, when you don't cheat on a test and the guy next to you does and gets a higher score, maybe even gets ahead of you, was what you did by not cheating worthless?

    What if an athlete said you should be shot if you prevented them from going sounds to me since you are so willing to ruin their lives to make a stupid statement, it would only be fair?

    Nothing is more disgusting than those who want to ruin the lives of others-as you do-so you can feel good

    that's even more moronic than your demands that others pay the price so you can feel good

    This is not far left idiocy. It is just idiocy. It is what the Dems are stuck with in their big tent and it cost them dearly in 2010 both ways.

    Now which far right loons are helping your GOP tent right now? The MIZZOU assclown? Or the House assclowns? OR the shut-er-down limpoids?

    The Olympics is for Nations, not States, or Regions, or Provinces, or even Commonwealths within Nations.

    its not even the gay agenda. ITs about a few people feeling a need to be able to engage in public displays of homosexual sex in a country that doesn't allow it

    why isn't TiredofLife damning Muslim nations?
