Nice Olympics You Got Here... Be A Shame If Something Happened To It

Can anyone there tell the difference?

So supposedly Lance Armstrong's in hot water because he says he'd rather see Paris get the Olympics in 2012 instead of New York. Good for him.

I remember when I used to watch the Olympics to see far away lands. Places like Barcelona, Sarajevo, Munich and Lillehammer. Now it seems like every 4 years either the winter or summer games is in the U.S. somewhere. I already knew that Salt Lake City and Atlanta were boring places, I didn't need Juan Antonio Sammaranch and his band of corrupt blowjob recepients raping the local taxpayers to find out.

And corruption is why I don't want the Olympics anywhere near New York. I've lived in New York, I've worked in New York, and there's no more corrupt city in this nation than New York. You can't put up a new mailbox in front of your house without greasing the palms of ten guys named Vincent, so what exactly makes anyone think that stadiums and venues would go up overnight without screwing the people that live and work there out of even more money than the city already does?

Did you know that when you live in New York, you have to pay a 'city tax' at the end of the year? It's about 5%. So when you tack that on to Federal Tax, State Tax, your $2500 per month apartment and one of the highest sales taxes in the country, it's ALREADY expensive as hell to live in NYC. Having the Olympics there would make a bad situation worse. Viva la France!!

Are you kidding, the Olympics and New York would be perfect together. A corrupt institution in a corrupt city? What could be better?
