HIS OWN WORST ENEMY

Here’s another version of the “harrowing experience” of Olympic swimmer Ryan Lochte.

As more information comes out, there’s more material for entertainers life John Oliver. We have already covered Stephen Colbert.

Whatever your opinion and feelings may be, there’s no denying that Lochte is his worst enemy.

I have my own personal opinion about the behavior 32 year old adolescent in on of the world’s biggest stage: the Olympic Games.

It’s not a nice one.

Take a look at someone else’s take and point of view.

This time for John Oliver.

IT TAKES A BRITISH GUY

John Oliver addressed Ryan Lochte’s disastrous Olympic gas-station incident in a recent segment on his show ‘Last Week Tonight,’ and boy, he really goes all in on the swimmer. Among the names Oliver slings around for Lochte are “America’s sweet, dumb merman,” “the purest form of the chemical element ‘Bro,’” and several other words that are less repeatable here.

But the best point Oliver makes is that Lochte, who was once, in Oliver’s words, “America’s sweet, dumb merman,” is no longer fun. When he was harmless, his antics — such as his reality show What Would Ryan Lochte Do? and his line of sneakers — were entertaining.

But now, the 32-year-old who said he acted “immaturely” and fumbled through a cringe-worthy interview with Matt Lauer, is a whole lot less endearing.

“And so,” Oliver says, “As we say goodbye to the Rio Olympics, we must also say goodbye to one of America’s favorite idiots.”

LATE SHOW EXCLUSIVE … APOLOGY ACCEPTED?

I think not! 

By now, I strongly believe that, if they didn’t, the whole world now knows who Ryan Lochte is.

He’s not a secret weapon of the USA anymore.

How many people were watching the Río Olympic Games?

That many and more know who he is and not because of his career in swimming

but rather because of the “robbed at gunpoint fiasco” story he fabricated.

I call it LYING …. there’s no other word for it.

I saw his interview with Matt Lauer and didn’t buy what he was telling the public.

His teary eyes didn’t move me.

Then again, that’s my personal opinion.

I follow a dear friend who posted an excellent article about this.

I strongly agree with my friend.

I will cite some of his words and I will include link so that you can read his excellent post.

In spite of the seriousness of this situation, it’s always good to see some humor.

This humor is as the expense of the ludicrous, pathetic excuses offered by the

“creator of the fabrication”.

Leave Stephen Colbert to do that.

~Ryan Lochte Epitomizes White Privilege and U.S. Foreign Policy~

The harrowing tale of American Olympic swimmer Ryan Lochte and his fellow athletes being held up at gunpoint and robbed in Río de Janeiro by men disguised as police officers was all the rage in the media last week.

Not surprisingly, there was no shortage of excuses made for the cherished American Olympic athletes.

“These kids tried to have fun,” said Rio 2016 Olympic spokesperson Mario Andrade. “Lochte is one of the best swimmers of all time. They competed under gigantic pressure. Let’s give these kids a break. They had fun, they made a mistake, life goes on.”

Rio

Following the European colonial playbook, Lochte played on the perceptions his countrymen have of Brazil and Latin American countries in general as having nothing more to offer than crime and poverty.

The same way the white Christian settlers demonized the Indigenous Americans as “savages” and Donald Trump demonizes Mexicans as “rapists”, Ryan Lochte essentially demonized the inhabitants of Río de Janeiro as nothing more than a bunch of thieves.

In this way he is the perfect representative of his country’s foreign policy, showing no respect for international standards of decency, behaving as if we are the “exceptional” nation, caring nothing about other cultures, and fabricating evidence to make the U.S. appear an innocent victim while those we invade and oppress are tarred with a brush of criminality and terrorism.

THE DOOR IS GOLD NOW

I do not know if this picture is real.

I don’t know if it’s been photo-shopped.

I don’t really want to find out because, in my mind, this is the color it should be now.

If it’s still the original Puerto Rican flag colors or the black and white colors,

it’s still alright.

If it’s really gold, I commend the artist.

The color of the Olympic Medal which Mónica Puig won at the Río 2016 Olympic Games.

She’s a proud Puerto Rican who made the Island vibrate and resonate with her as she accomplished her gold dreams and dedicated her win to her country.

Thank you, Mónica!

The original story behind the door

By Andrew S. Vargas

 In San Juan’s historic center there is a giant colonial door bearing an image of the Puerto Rican flag.

Known appropriately as “La Puerta de la Bandera,” the mural boldly asserts its presence from the side of an abandoned historical building on a busy commercial strip, where on any given day a gaggle of tourists flashing peace signs can be found taking turns at photos.

Since it was first painted by local artist Rosenda Álvarez four years ago with permission from the building’s owner, La Puerta has emerged as an emblematic fixture of Old San Juan and a symbol of national identity.
