Here is the Olympic Charter:
"The practice of sport is a human right. Every individual must have the possibility of practicing sport, without discrimination of any kind and in the Olympic spirit, which requires mutual understanding with a spirit of friendship, solidarity and fair play."
After reading that, can someone of sane mind and heart explain to me how in the FWORD Russia was selected to hold the Winter Olympiad? With Putin's stance on homosexuality, what crooked SOB's took the pay-off and said, "Yup, Sochi is PERFECT for this." Now Russia's contribution to humankind is undeniable. Lenin, Stalin, Khrushchev, vodka, Gulags, poverty, unemployment, the Molotov Cocktail and nesting dolls. But come on, just search #Sochifail on Twitter and the stories are hysterical. And sad. This crazy meerkat Putin spent 51-BILLION to get the winter games. This from a leader of a country where some people consider coal a major food group. The IOC is so corrupt and shady, it really has soured me on the Olympics. Do I want our athletes to win? Yes. But these games are tainted. People being displaced because they lived in areas that Olympic venues needed to be built on, a contractor buddy of Putin’s getting 4.5-billion to build structures that never got built??? And now we get word a drunk-ass tried to hijack a liner out of or into Istanbul and redirect it to Sochi. That's great! What a shining star for the world to behold the next two weeks. A huge shout out to the idiots of the IOC!
