What Do You Think 
of the 
RYAN LOCHTE 
AFFAIR?




Do you ACCEPT the media’s assertion
that he is, indeed, guilty of a crime?

If so, what should be his punishment?

Go ahead speculate to your heart's content. 
This is not a courtroom, and no one 
is on trial here today.

But please observe our rule that

  1. Since the swimmers filed no police reports, what "crimes" can they be guilty of, other than "gross immaturity"?

    1. For the record, Lochte appears to deny nothing of his original story.

      Gross immaturity and stupidity.

  3. Lochte is old enough to know better than to carry on like a frat boy -- especially when he's representing a nation at the Olympics.

    Filing a false police report is a crime here in the United States, but I don't know if Brazil has such a statute.

    1. He never "filed" one with the police, only family and the media. And if lying to the media were a crime, DC would be a ghost town. If lying to family were, we'd ALL be in prison.

  4. As much as I dislike defending offensive frat boys vandalizing toilets there is a possible at least partial defense for Lachte.

    Brazilian police may operate a little more efficiently in these situations and demand payment on the spot. No middle man.
    In that case the clown may in fact have thought he was being held up.

    The only thing that's definitive is that Katie Ledecky is a much classier representative of American swimming.

    1. Lochte is THIRTY-TWO, and already has GRAY HAIR! Hardly a "Frat boy" image.

      Katie Ledecky may have finer character than Ryan Locate, but her achievements are irrelevant to the content of this post.

      Rio di Janeiro has been consistently depicted in our press as a filthy, disease-ridden, down-at-the-heels sort of place with all the charm and character of an open septic tank that no sane person would want to visit.

      Whether that be true or not, I have no idea, because I find it IMPOSSIBLE to believe ANYTHING the enemedia says about ANY-thing or ANY-one anymore.

      What seems to have escaped most is the enemedia's OBSESSION with making a SENSATION of a trivial event such as the Lochte Affair while they studiously do their best to ignore or blithely GLOSS OVER the egregious LIES, DISTORTIONS and HALF-TRUTHS pouring like LAVA from the foul mouth of KLINTONA, the KACKLING KROOK –– the Democratic Party's Korrupt Kandidate for PRESIDENT of these United States.

      THAT –– to my way of thinking –– is –– or certainly should be –– the REAL story here.

  5. Hes a lying criminal and should be arrested for filing a false crime.

      Stop shooting off your mouth when it's so painfully
      obvious that you really don't know a thing, girl.

      Shutting your mouth and opening your ears for a few months would do you a world of good.

    No one seems to have understood that the reason this trivial story got so much play in the enemedia had to do with its power to DISTRACT the public from the consistently outrageous behavior of scofflaw Hillary Rodham Clinton and the scandals surrounding her deeply flawed candidacy.
