        Hi Members,

        The announcement just in.......Chicago was the first one voted out in the possible four locations.

        Rumor was Chicago was a favorite to win. Being from Chicago i am of course really bummed. As I'm sure Americans are in general.

        Is there a political agenda for the top contender to lose? What do you think?

        It's all politics..it was heard that many people on the Olympic committee was not gonna vote for ANY US city for the Olympics regardless of what city that was.

        Congrats to Rio.

        Obama looked like a naive begger.  Also, being the host city for an Olympic games is a pain.  Yeah, lots of nice world wide perks, but it can bankrupt a city.  I am happy it is going to Rio!  Do they have casinos there???

        "Today, most of the good people are afraid to be good. They strive to be broadminded and tolerant. It is fashionable to be tolerant but mostly tolerant of evil and this new code has reached the proportions of demanding intolerance of good."

        Well, I wasn't keen either way, till I heard the price tag for the hosting.

        Estimated 14.4 BILLION.

        Dear God how many people could be fed, housed, clothed, sheltered??

        I think the "No" had an impact, but more so Rio's claim "It's time for balance in the Olympics Hosting" and I think that swayed them for this.

        On the bright side, though prices will possibly double, nows the time to start saving for tripping down to Rio and checking out the games, food and fun!!

        (Provided I'm alive and able to still go..I think $50 a week for 5 years or so should be a help...$50 x 4 X 65 months...$13,000 PARTY!!!)
