Clearly anyone reading some of the response on here would see the how much the decline of American decency.
I guess if my neighbors barn gets hit by lightening or blown away in a cyclone instead of helping organize a barn raising I should rejoice at the prospect that his farm will now do poorly now that he has no barn where as it will make my farm and its products that much more valuable. Maybe use it to force him out of business maybe pick his farm up for pennies on the dollar.
I dont know this blogger and he may be a left-wing wacko and I dont care, but I do know Rush and though he is pretty much right on the money on things anyone that doesnt recognize the fact that he at times is more than a bit of a blow hard has been worshipping at the dittohead alter to long.
What the girl here did didnt effect the competition as both girls were out of the running she merely came to the aid of a fellow athlete. I guess those people who cheer on someone in there 20th hour of a marathon race must be nuts because the person is clearly a LOSER! The winner had finished up hours ago so why cheer them on?
There is competiveness and there is sportsmanship and the problem as I see it isnt the lack of one or the other its the lack of balance of the two.
“What the girl here did didnt effect the competition as both girls were out of the running she merely came to the aid of a fellow athlete.”
Was it her job to do what she did? Weren’t there people present whose job it was to come to the aid of a fallen or otherwise distressed runner?
I sometimes wonder if these things don’t happen because one one or more of the people involved in what would appear to be (non-life-threatening) gallantry, are only in it for the impromptu photo op or other publicity they can use as a resume enhancer or self-esteem maintainer.
