Yippee! The 2016 Olympics are going to be in Rio!
Good for Brazil…
Yahoo! The corrupt president of America didn’t get the Olympics for the lobby in his most corrupt town of Chicago, where such anti-Christ candidates as Zbigniew Brzezinski, and Henry Kissinger bred him to be president!
Good for Earth…
But let’s look at this reasonably.
Why aren’t the Olympics going to be in America in 2016?
The same reason, I would imagine, that the World Trade Center isn’t being rebuilt in a hurry. The global powers that be know there won’t be a United States standing by 2016. Why waste the money building stadiums, aquatic centers, malls, city centers, and other temporary and extraordinarily expensive landmarks for one event that only lasts around three weeks. Nobody will want to travel half way around the world to enter a horrific police state in a 2nd or 3rd world, completely indebted country as the future America will no doubt be, whatever its name by then or how many parts it gets split into.
The Olympics lost any appeal it might have had for me when it was instituted many years ago that professional athletes could compete in lieu of amateurs. This dashing of Olympic hopefuls who work their whole lives to get onto the teams that go to the games really angered me. I was extremely happy when the Dream Team got beat. The ideal of the Olympic Games has been swallowed up by pomp and circumstance, corporate advertising, and something other than dreams.
And as for Rio… well, I imagine a wall will be built to hide the slums from public view – similar to China’s Olympics – but not high enough to obscure the mountaintop art deco statue of Christ the Redeemer (Portuguese: O Cristo Redentor) as he no doubt frowns upon the corporately sponsored games. And in 2020, after the wall is removed, and as the once grand, now abandoned and unused structures are decaying in the humid ocean air, the beautifully downtrodden and hungry people of the Morro da Babilônia favela (Rio slums) will no doubt wonder at how much that billions of dollars in Olympic funding could have helped the real economy of that country on a more permanent basis.
And O Cristo Redentor will no doubt continue to hold out his hopeful but empty hands over the Rio slums… in a permanent state of false hope.
