Does anyone else think that this country can really use a Summer Olympics here..... ASAP?

I don’t care what state it’s in! It just seems like we might just need an event that lifts everyone up.

Thoughts? It’s safer than a war.

The USOC has a money issue with the IOC and won’t allow bids until it’s resolved. Boston tried, and the USOC squashed the attempt before they could bid.

I really don’t think that’s a good option for our country right now. The political climate, violence, all the costs associated with it - it’s really not a good event to host.

Maybe so.... but it’s better than a military parade which would really cost a ton of money.

That logical makes zero sense. It’s not like we have to pick one and those are the only options.

And hosting the Olympics would cost much more than the proposed parade. I don’t think people realize how expensive it is.

I’m sure it is expensive. And I’m basically talking about something that most people can get behind. And who really doesn’t like the Olympics? At least the summer ones.

BTW..., I’m not trying to make sense! LOL I’m just wondering out loud.... thank you very much! :)
