    It's not that simple, not anymore.

    This guy doesn't care about the Olympiads or the Olympics. His gay agenda is quite clear. Some of these people are soooo delusional that it is the only thing they care about.

    He doesn't have to listen to anyone. It's not their call, it's his. When you go in the name of the USA at this level, that's how it works.

    We'll see. Somehow I'm highly doubtful that our country will choose not to participate because of this lunacy.

    You don't know the US very well I see? We are a nation of ideals, that's who we are, and our backs are to the wall on this one. I'm sure there is plenty going on to try and avoid this, but it's going to be very ugly very soon and when Putin digs in, we are gone. Been there, done that.

    Not so long ago it would not have been tolerated in most of the US either. Doing so now would still be considered hypocritical and morally obstinate.

    Choose something else to protest the law in Russia.

    We'll see how quickly Russia escorts them to the tarmac. Obama has set policy in stone and all lifestyles must live by the Olympic rules. I recognize the damage to Dems at the polls next year due to this.

    Not so long ago is still too damn long ago to have our athletes threatened just for being openly gay.
