The Republican-American U.S. not as bad as depicted
- There has been a subtle undercurrent throughout this two week Olympic run that has been basically ignored by NBC. The network shouldn't feel too bad, however, since the same notion is commonly downplayed by almost every politician and media pundit in the public sphere today.The theme? That our country is not such a bad place to live after all.And how do we come to this conclusion after watching the Olympic Games? Did you notice how many athletes from different countries live here, go to school here, train here ... basically want to do anything in their power to come here?
