Countries that host them never make much anyway. In recent years the Olympics is just a way for governments to displace the homeless from city centers and get great new infrastructure installed, but which leaves many countries in debt afterwards. The Olympic committee keeps all of the entrance fees that athletes pay and all of the attendance ticket sales. The host country only makes money from sales of food, hotel rooms, and souveniers which usually don't make up for the buildings and infrastructure. This is why CO turned them down in recent years and they went to Utah instead. We learned from the Vail games years ago.

Thank you fellow patriot.

This is a patriotic start to our Memorial Day weekend.
We still have so much to proud of in America, the greatest nation on this earth. We also still have so much that has not been taken from us, like our individual character and patriotic spirit that can never be socially engineered.
God Bless America and its exceptionalism and the fervent patriotism exhibited by this young man and millions of Americans daily.
Long live the US Constitution and may ALL our enemies, foreign and domestic, burn in hell.

Socialists like Obama accuse Americans of imperialism.
Yet, unlike the former imperialistic Japan, we rebuild countries after war at the expense of our own taxpayers.
Your point is on target.

Socialism, the baby step to communism, has murdered over 100 million human beings during the past 100 years.
Who speaks for those lost souls?
You got the right sentiment and well expressed might I add.

Hillary cannot afford to be dismissive.
In California Clinton polls 46% to Sanders 44%.
But then what do you expect from a woman of no accomplishment under CRIMINAL investigation by the FBI.
When you can’t close the deal all bets are off.

Probably, like most Muslim families in America, already enrolled in some taxpayer subsidized welfare program.

Millenial Muslims are a serious problem.
Time to play Wac-a-Mole with these ungrateful bastards.
How about a Trumpfer? -mandatory one way tickets back to the middle eastern country of origin.
They need to be relocated to the same place that bin laden went to.

How do you think Engels financed Karl Marx’s “Communist Manifesto”?
By liquidating his parents British publishing company.
Communism doesn’t grown in trees.
As long as capitalism thrives communism remains in check.
Our next president is an uber capitalist.

But communist revolutions cannot take place unless capitalism bank rolls it and that’s not going to happen in America.
If my opinion of Trump changes after he takes office I will be one of the first to admit I was wrong about him.
If Trump proves himself to be exactly what I expect of him, somebody that is in it for all the wrong reasons, where will you be?

Yes, how sweet it is.
In a matter of hours an entire chunk of the electorate will decide to vote Trump. Many of them too afraid to tell their friends, co-workers and family members.
It will result in a tsunami in November.
Millions of Hispanics, Blacks, Asians, Women, former moderate democrats…all voting for Trump.
So much so that It won’t even matter if the Cruzbots sit it out.
 May 26, 2016 at 11:01am
Time for voters to unite and permanently extinguish the political ambition of the Clintons.
Then we can focus on dismantling the political correctness that is choking American exceptionalism to death.
And for all the Cruzbots – last one out the door please turn off the lights….
You must be Trumps relative. You sound just like him.

The cost of doing business in NYC involves manipulation, calculation, immediate decision and greased palms. In the private sector there is no safety net. Trump is now operating within the parameters of public life.
The Clintons who were so called ‘great’ are not so great now. After the first successful term of Trump your opinion will also change.
Trump was always "operating within the parameters of public life." The things he said about the Clintons being great, abortion, Obama care etc. were all said in the public media. But its good to know that Trump finds it as easy to change his political positions as he does cheating on his wives. Either Trump has no real position on the issues or he is a liar. Either way, it's not good. I suppose it is possible he really changed, but if that's the case he should prove it. Saying "trust me" is not good enough.

In my humble opinion, although millions of Americans are hoping for indictment, I believe we are witnessing the end of the Clinton tenure in public life. The MSM, their protector of the past 25 years, can no longer shield them from a collectively and increasingly engaged court of public opinion.
We can no longer rely on jurisprudence in government.
Government does not eat its own elite.
It is the power of our ballot that talks loudest.
Unite together to defeat the Clintons and the system that has allowed them to feed for so long, unfettered, at the trough of public life.
