DUmmie FUnnies 08-10-08 (DUmmies Ashamed of US Winning in the Olympics)
DUmmie FUnnies ^ | 8/10/2008 | 28erl, DUmmies, and Paul Heinzman

Posted on 08/10/2008 11:59:25 AM PDT by Paul Heinzman



The summer games are underway in Beijing after no small amount of debate over whether the United States should participate due to China's human rights violations. That debate is over now, but controversy continues. Foreign journalists have gotten a first-hand taste of China's Internet restrictions, one American tourist was murdered and another injured by a Chinese madman who then killed himself, and three Americans protesting religious oppression have been detained and then ejected from the country.

However, for some DUmmies, the real controversy is how doggone good the United States is at winning medals, as you will see in this DUmmie THREAD titled "olympic medals - does anyone else finding it embarassing to take so many."

So let's take a break from counting Michael Phelps's gold medals to watch the DUmmies lament America's awesomeness in Bolshevik red with the comments of your humble guest narrator, Paul Heinzman, in the [brackets].

olympic medals - does anyone else finding it embarassing to take so many

[It's right up there with misspelling embarrassing.]

we walk in with a 'crowd' and then seem surprised to get so many - it would be nice if some of the other 240 counties that are smaller got some - it always seems like a gang shows up when we walk in and then so many have to say USA USA - I mean - I just find it like the 'gang' is here and we are taking over - what are your thoughts? I know republics like the gangs and bullies to take over everything so they like being king of the mountain all the time - I just feel like others should get a turn more often


[Every game should end in a tie. That way, everybody wins.]

I know I got sick of winning all of mine that's for sure.

[Olympic pizza eating?]

no. i like winning. and i like winning in olypmics. sorry.

[Even if it makes everyone else feel bad?]

...and this is why I always supported the idea of sending ONLY collegiate competitors from the U.S. to participate. We try to turn it into a celebration of U.S. dominance in the world and we are rightly resented for it. I find it hard to root for the U.S. in any olympic competition.

[May we question your patriotism now?]

Yes, the Olympics should be a celebration...   
...a celebration of good clean spirited international competition and camaraderie. Not an effort on the part of the U.S. to take advantage of its relative size and dominance in so many sports to carry off a gargantuan medal haul every four years. This could be achieved by sending collegiate athletes instead of professionals.


[We'd still win more than anyone.]

What professionals do we send besides Basketball and if you haven't noticed the NBA has been globalized with players from all over world who are playing for their home countrys. Not to mention that Basketball is just one metal. What other sports do we have pros in? Football, nope. Baseball, nope. Guess what, that it. Those are the pro sports. Take your head out of your ass.

[You win the gold medal Kewpie doll for having a brief moment of mental clarity.]

What part of "collegiate athletes" do you not understand, Sidney?
 
[Since Sidney is probably a professional college student, my money's on the "athlete" part.]

And what kind of belligerent jackass gets worked up over a topic like this?

[Just about any DUmmie.]

The American empire is dying in case you hadn't noticed, genius. Don't guess that matters though -- as long as we can stomp Panama in thumb wrestling and pull down the gold. USA NUMBER ONE!!!! YEAH!!!!!!!

[It's "USA! USA! USA!"]

The young pros in the soccer tournament are often far better than the young men we can send, for example.

[Imagine the outcry when the United States finally wins a World Cup.]

I guess that is the part I feel - it isn't just a competition of athletes but the attitude of dominance - I do root for the people and yes I like to see how someone acts when they win - some are more gracious than others - I am not saying we should run slower, etc as someone else mentioned but we seem to have the funds to send more - some of these countries have good athletes but not the training facilities or opportunities - doing their best is nice - but it is that American arrogance - I remember when I traveled in europe I stayed away from some Americans because it was embarrassing the way they acted - that holier than thou stuff - I find that same thing with republics - they act like they are holy and great and yet so many are in the closet or infidelity but you would think the dems were the only ones when in actuality - those most against something are usually guilty -

[If there were a writing competition in the Twit Olympics, you'd take the gold.]

In 1980 we won zero

[Not in the Summer, but in the winter there was one that ended in the chant "USA! USA! USA!" that was particularly displeasing to Will Pitt.]

Jimmy Carter made them wear sweaters to save energy and they were slowed down by it!

[BLASPHEMER!]

I don't know why any American whould be surprised - it's a big sports-obsessed country that gives out university scholarships just for being good at a sport.

[Yes, these kids who bring millions of dollars in revenue to universities should get nothing and like it.]

That is literally the stupidest f*cking thing I've read all day, and there are about 600 Edwards threads competing for that title.

[That's saying a lot considering this is DU.]

This isn't the Kumbayalympics.

[It's the DUmmie FUnnies.]

Hell, let's get rid of the contest and everyone can get a gold medal!

[Everybody gets a medal!]

But what would we call it?
Special Olympics is already taken....


[We'll call it the Oprahlympics.]

If there was ever a post that validates the RW stereotype of liberals, this is it

[And we have noticed.]

Is there any representation of this country which doesn't embarrass you?

[Just Democratic Underground.]

Men's volleyball right now...

The essence of liberalism, but very revealing.

A global agency that redistributed medals not according to performance but to "need" is (as DU commentators noted) a really stupid idea. But this is EXACTLY what they want to do with income and productivity. This is a perfect metaphor for liberal economics.

some of these countries have good athletes but not the training facilities or opportunities

Some of these countries are Socialist/Communist. The money isn't there for such frivolous stuff because it's hoarded by the elites.

I remember when I traveled in europe I stayed away from some Americans because it was embarrassing the way they acted - that holier than thou stuff

You mean, like you're acting here?

I find that same thing with republics - they act like they are holy and great and yet so many are in the closet or infidelity but you would think the dems were the only ones when in actuality - those most against something are usually guilty

Oh, republics=Republicans. I gotcha. Had me wondering there for a second. I'm one. I don't know anyone who's "in the closet" nor do I know anyone who's guilty of infidelity. Not to say they aren't there. But I'd bet they're a lot fewer than on the Democrat side. I mean, it goes with their territory, doesn't it?

Obviously you have never played the sport. It is the most physically demanding team sport in the Olympics.

Don’t think so? Knew you wouldn’t!

Just try to keep your body out of the water up to your waist just using an eggbeater kick.

The winning starts with the kids wanting to be their best. Perhaps this liberal can go to our schools and tell the kids that they should strive for equality, that besting others is a terrible thing to do....

oh, wait. That's exactly what the NEA does...never mind.

Top 20!

Hey! You need to reel it back, fella. It's not fair to all us others that you get into the top 'whatever' all the time. Just because we get here late doesn't mean we should be excluded. There should be a fairer system to where "Top X" posts are awarded throughout a thread regardless of when they are submitted.

After all, what you're doing smacks of domination over the masses.

Disclaimer: All the above in deference to the topic of this thread. No harm nor intention of harm is intended against anyone regardless of race, creed or party membership (well, perhaps the last). Samplings were made by assessing the number of finishes in the "top whatever" contest on every DUmmieFunnies thread (then picking Mr. Silverback at random). The owner of this post reserves the right to change his mind at any time (or not to if found most people concur).

Before reading the thread, allow me to say this about the subject: Libs are always whining about how we should use America’s “soft power” more and be more multicultural. Well, what is more multicultural than an event with 204 coun tries involved? And what is further from the hard power of a B-52 bombing an enem than a guy jumping in a pool and swimming a little faster than the other guys in the pool?

They were just showing that hottie Michael Phelps' silver medal swim, but it doesn't say "Live" in the corner of the screen or anything. I'm confused as well.

It's weird that we - seven to ten hours ahead of the States depending on the time zone there are getting the same feed. I guess we're getting the same NBC feed they're running back home.

One thing we're not getting is any commercials. Just military PSAs.
