  2. I don't post here often but I've skimmed through this thread and just have to say... All of you Anti-Trumpers are idiots and really don't understand him at all if you think, for one hot second, that he's going to go down the "boycott the Beijing 2022 Olympics" road during a second term. His whole mantra is MAGA. It's about America WINNING. He's going to want our athletes going into Beijing and kicking some Chinese ass and beating them in the medal count.

  7. It was a sincere joke around here, but hindsight being 20/20.......in 2020, Almaty is unquestionably the safer choice of the two. China was obviously perceived to be the safer bet with a treasure trove of cash. I also was always a bigger fan of the Almaty bid frankly speaking. While no darling angels, their bid was compact and had those "mountain" things that are pretty critical to hosting Olympic events (that and an actual winter sports culture).
