I have wanted to write an in depth diary as to why I am boycotting these Olympics and why I am amazed that the progressive/liberal/Democrat netroots have not called for a boycott, but... I have been way to busy.
So I leave you with some thoughts from a couple of comments I made on another diary.
"I am Boycotting these Olympics for many reasons.
I will NOT give china and credit and praise for what they do. This reminds me of the Nazi Olympics, but with OUR support and money helping to showcase them as the new economic, and soon to be, military superpower."
"As you revel in the spectacle of the Olympics, I hope you think of a few things like...
Darfur/Sudan, of the mistreatment of lower end workers and slave labor, of the 2.3 million jobs lost from the USA to China during the bush regime, the 1.4 TRILLION dollars we OWE china, of Fulan Gong (sp?), of TIBET, and on and on and on...."
There is so much more. We could probably list a thousand things and still not have 50% of a complete list.
What are your reasons for also boycotting these Olympics?
What are your reasons for not boycotting?
