4alarm’s rants of the day.

Posted in culture,politics by rdkaye on 24 February 2006

1. since when did “national security” justify xenophobia? now, not only do brown people have to be humiliated in airports, but now they can’t even conduct legitimate business in the US? come on people, the parent companies of the Dubai port management company haven’t been conducting good business for years to dupe us into thinking they’re safe. they’re trying to make money, here, people. gah.

now, i might be concerned about the administration’s connections to said multinational corporation, but that’s an entirely different issue. better DP World than Halliburton.

2. what the hell is up with our society that winning a silver medal at the freaking olympics makes one a loser??!?!?!

For Cohen, her silver is another reminder of potential squandered.

last time i checked, that means that on that one day, she was the second best figure skater in the WORLD. ugh. she’s a 21 year old kid. leave her alone. get some olympic spirit, people.

According to the Olympic Charter, established by Pierre de Coubertin, the goal of the Olympic Movement is to contribute to building a peaceful and better world by educating youth through sport practised without discrimination of any kind and in the Olympic spirit, which requires mutual understanding with a spirit of friendship, solidarity and fair play.
