    I simply don't believe you, taf
    Never? Ever? Not ever? Not one lil' egg roll?
    Not one scoop of fried rice?
    Not one fortune cookie?
    No way, Jose!

    Boycotts don't work. I do wish the IOC had chosen a different '08 host, but the Olympics are the Olympics, above all else.

            Have you had a restaurant hamburger recently? Chances are good that animal fat imported from China was used to "juice up" the patty. Apparantly American beef is too lean. :shock:

                Are you saying that we should not have cracklings for breakfast when you visit? Unbelievable!

                  From an article on the front page:

                  "I could see the government wanting to do that again,'' Rudge said. "But we don't need (government support) to go to the Games."

                  Nonsense, of course. If the government decided not to let us go, we wouldn't be going. Period. Full stop. End of discussion. He is naive.

                      Are you sure? In 1980, the British government supported the US government's call for a boycott of the Moscow Games. The British Olympic people told the government to take a hike. They sent their athletes and survived.
