I figured today I would post something that was bugging me during these Olympic events.  I dislike the new scoring and think its biased as well.  I watched an interview from some German guy basically saying it was open to let more biased scoring in for teams that have a higher political advantage towards others.  I think its pretty absurd that politics are ruining these games and creating such a buzz and poor publicity for these games.  The kings of poor publicity during this time has to be China.  That country has gone and dented so much of their reputation that it’s unbelievable how their country hasn’t had a revolt.  Maybe its just because society there is under so much repression it can’t do anything but bend over and take it.

The Chinese governement, in one simple word “sucks.”  They kicked a kid out of the opening ceremony because she didn’t seem like a good person to represent her country i.e. she was ugly.  That’s absurd.  The girl is 7 years old.  But, we can’t get a great opinion about a country because they are lying bastards who try and represent something they are not.   It’s just frustrating how much politics absolutely ruins everything in life.  In this article here. The Chinese actually defend it as a statement of “favoring one girl and making one sit on the bench.”  how so?  You had one girl sit on the bench and then had that girl that was riding the pine do all the work while you had someone else gain notoriety?  Piss on you China, your politics and what you want people to see earn you a spot in hell.

Next, another story that is so incredible I can’t believe it’s real.  A performer was injured during practice and was not attended to for 50 MINUTES!  Are you kidding me, seriously?  She is now paralyzed from the waste down and some speculate that it could have been prevented if the Chinese governement would have let parametics enter in a timely fashion.  Also, once everyone found out this person was hurt China went ahead and said that it was a broken leg. China, if we ever meet, I could shoot you.  I honestly feel bad for people that live there and have no way to escape their government.  Link to article http://au.news.yahoo.com/a/-/newshome/4898104

Haven forbid you talk about Darfur.  What’s going on there is so balls, one can’t even comprehend that their government is a piece of shit.  They revoked a visa of an American Olympian because he was an open activist for Darfur.  Well newsflash China, what your doing to them is fucking insanity, I only hope that someday someone can do that to you, and killing someone’s dream of being a medal winner in favor of your good face is ridiculous.  I hope the politicians die for it.

Their government is absolutly insane.  You can’t have an opinion, you can’t protest, you can’t live, you can’t breathe, and to the Chinese government if you live there, you certainly have no freedom.

To everyone who reads this and are of a foreign nature.  Please, don’t think I hate people of Chinese nature.  I simply am astonished that this government can destory someone’s soul, and dreams in order for it to always seem like its one giant land of OZ.
