    It's so lawless down there, I'd just turn around and bust one of those little sewer rats right in the nose. Get the fuck out!

    customers should boycott the networks that air the olympics when they are held in lawless 3rd world nations. once the commercial benefits are removed they will stop being held in such places. our pocketbooks are the only way we have of influencing these things.

    if you want it to stop, then you have to withhold their sweets.

    I'm actually okay with it. The strong survive off the week. It's been that way for hundreds of millions of years.

    do they have NFL in third world countries?

    arizona doesn't count

    i'm just advocating pulling our support and tourist money from any place so uncivilized that our citizens cannot walk the streets safely. we have the money so we get to demand how we are treated by those we support. Rio wants us to spend money there, then they have to keep their streets safe. We do it here for our tourists; its about time we start providing an incentive for other countries to do the same.

    no i mean now: we disnefied times sq. you can walk thru it at night with no fear of muggings. its family and child safe now.

    its the most boring part of the city now. i don't know any residents who go there anymore because its depressing.

    i was referring to the muggers trying to rip off tourists in Times Sq now. the place is patrolled and under camera surveillance to protect the tourists and keep them vacationing in NYC. I dont think the muggers would survive the way the cops treat them should they try to steal from the tourists.
