Waste

Its hard to think of something to say.. Waste, people are homeless and hungry, I don't know.. This is a slap in the face from the rich to the poor. They are laughing at them as they look out of the dark tinted windows of that $200,000 limo.. The poor can't see them getting the the middle finger as they laugh and drive away..

It's shameful isn't it. You'd have thought at the very least they could have found some homeless people to live in the abandoned athlete village.

And did you notice the security barriers and lights around the abandoned apartments? THey might not have money to do anything with these fcailities, but they do seem to have found the money to keep the people out of them.

Doesn't this always happen?
My city was a contender a few years back...I was so happy when we didn't get it, for a lot of reasons (I personally did not want to deal with the traffic/constructon/etc)....I actually like the Olympics, in general, but they just need a better system, from start to finish (the money, the trash, the waste, oh yeah, the human trafficking)...it's too bad that the human race, we have such great ideals, but such poor execution in the long run..
