While I agree with the sentiment of the following letter, even though it
would mean that the U.S.A. repressive regime couldn't host the Olympics, I
do believe that "whimpering ass" is a little out of the ball park of our
agreement on how to deport ourselves on this list.

Sorry,

Tell you what Charles. When the world powers allow the chinese to move into
Trinidad and reinstitute slavery
and put your whimpering ass to work out in the fields whacking sugar cane or
working in a cement plant
or worse then we will hear it from you.

I have all the respect in the world for the athletes; the situation in Tibet
is not their fault. There should be more
regularly scheduled international sports competition apart from the
Olympics. The Olympics should never be held in 
countries with repressive regimes. It is fortuituous for the Tibetans that
the olympics are being held in china as
they have a once in many years oppportunity to let the world know about
their plight at the hands of the chinese thugs 
that run the chinese government and military. We should do the most we can
to help the Tibetans make the most of it.

I ran track in prep school and think that it is the ultimate sport.

So: if the Nazis came to power in Germany again and started exterminating
Jews, or hippies, or blacks, or gays or 
gypsies, or permaculturists or if the Russholes did the same (which they may
indeed be doing unbeknownst to us and 
allegedly have been doing in Chechnia for decades and as they did in
Afganistan) then would we hear it from you?
from everyone the world over? What would happen then? Well, that is exactly
what is happening NOW in Tibet, in case you 
haven't noticed.

Boycott the Olympics in china!!!
Boycott all chinese imported goods!!!
