Our Happy Socialist Paradise - Olympic Fever

The ancient Greeks believed fire was given to man by Prometheus, and thought it had sacred qualities. Eternal flames that burned in front of Greek temples, flames were lit from rays of the sun. And so.... The Olympic flame is lit in front of the ruins of the Temple of Hera in Olympia, shining light on the eternal connection between the ancient and modern Games. Light, in fact, is considered to be associated with the concepts of truth and upright morality, purity of spirit and mind etc....

Got That? Sacred... Gift of the Gods... Eternal...Rays of Sunlight... Truth... Purity...?




Of course .... the spirit of the Olympics is secondary to the opportunity for local yokels, who deem themselves your betters, to get their own fat faces out of the trough just long enough to take a picture with the symbolic Olympic torch.

From the Winnipeg Free Press:

During its stay in Manitoba, before heading further west to its ultimate destination next month, the Winter Olympic Games, several notable people will carry the torch including Premier Greg Selinger, University of Winnipeg president Lloyd Axworthy, former Olympian Eddie "The Eagle" Edwards, Ben Moss president Brent Trepel, Gail Asper and CTV/TSN host Brian Williams, who has covered the Olympics since 1976.


Yeah sure................... Manitoba's major Olympic sponsor is CanWest Media.



But ..... What's Eddie the Eagle doing here in Manitoba... with this bunch of turkeys??

My thoughts exactly. The who's who of pinko deadbeats, and then you've got Eddie. One more stab at his 15 minutes?
