    1. @Wark Mahlberg I think everybody should participate in the Olympics and they should do away with medals altogether. Everyone should get a participation award and a gift certificate for Applebees.

    2. @John Clarke Yes, everyone should receive a participation trophy. We’ll all be equally mediocre.

  1. Leviticus 18:19-23 tells us of sins that are abominations, and defiles the land and when the land is defiled it vomits its habitants, So when you see tornados and floods and earthquakes AKA NATURAL DISASTERS. know that the land is defiled and programed to react that way when some sins defile it. Jesus Christ did not abolish the law he gave us grace for repentance. Love everyone as yourself but don’t encourage anyone to continue in sin.

  2. Wtaf?!! I’m a disabled person who understands how people like me are treated as less, but this was a horrible & ridiculous policy! Glad it’s being righted & they need to do more. Society already gives people permission to mistreat disabled folks & that’s gotta change. We aren’t less than anyone else, and you never know what might happen to you, so don’t be a jerk! I wasn’t always disabled. You just never know. Treat people better.

  3. They get more viewers than women’s basketball, and soccer combined, so they should, more viewers more money…

    1. Because it’s all part of the same back and forth show that turns the “united” states against each other?

  4. Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, was buried and third day He rose from the death – 1Corinthians 15:1-4 (The Gospel of Salvation)

    Believe what He did for you on the cross and be saved!

  5. We have put together,I think,the most extensive and inclusive voter fraud organization in the history of American politics.- Joe Biden,Democrat

  6. They’re lucky they get anything. Pay them in gold tin foil chocolates. JK. They deserve the same prizes as the wnba- magnetized trophies they can stick on their refrigerators.

  7. Maybe, back when this first started, lower compensation may have made sense. But lately, they deserve every bit of what they have earned. And they’ve got the viewers to back it. So, yeah.

  8. Okay MAGA KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK KEEP GOING
    I just received a bid for one of my oil paintings… Way more than I expected. Thank you for impersonating me. This is so much better than paying for promotions myself.
