The Olympics Are an Expensive and Failed Statist Bread and Circus Show that is EMPTY

Empty stadium seats, a nasty militarized Nazified police state, friends and family members who are denied access to watch their loved ones compete and a hugely expensive taxpayer tab are all components of the London Olympics. The whole hideous Olympics affair is justifiably getting a whole lot of bad press. This photo went viral on Facebook:

There are very ugly sides to the Olympics. The Olympics expedited the severe financial distress of Greece and contributed absolutely nothing to the Greek economy despite costing the Greeks about $15 billion.

The Olympics are really nothing more than a taxpayer subsidized party for the elites, the rich, the politicos, corporate CEO's and celebrities of all stripes.

But there is also a mournful, deplorable and immoral human cost that is the real face of the Olympics. Poor folks are being forced out of their homes and entire neighborhoods are being bulldozed.

Brazil is hosting the 2016 Olympics as well as the 2012 World Cup. To construct 5 star accommodations to entertain and house the wealthy, Brazil is literally emptying out entire neighborhoods.
