A great Olympic Gold medal winner on the 5k!
Very bummed out about the error by Coach Kemkers (one of my personal favorite speedskaters) in this 10k race.
We have 4 years to try again Sven! Let's do it!
Je bent een toppertje!”

“lets just not do "it" again
"it" meaning being a cocky little jerk, and an american hater.”

“Instant karma for a cocky dutch skater. Sorry to burst your dutch bubble.”
“He did an interview with the Dutch press indeed....
if you youtube Shani Davis .... you can see more interviews with him.
he is an amzing talent, works by himself, keeps to himself... and the people of the Netherlands LOVE HIM!!!!!
He is bringing the art back to speedskating :)
(apparantly he picked an appearance on a Dutch Children's program over Oprah!)”
“nothing rude going on here....
just being to the point...
the guy just won gold.... had a big race behind him... is laden with emotion (did you see him run into the audience.... know about his family life....
nothing rude about this move, just to the point...
her questions was a complete time-waster!”
“Due to the fact that we are a small country with only a few olympic athletes we cover every race (!) and at least the top 3 of every race. And ofcourse being Dutch we value the story of the 'underdog'. As far as I know the Studio Sport journalists do their homework...
Interesting that Shani Davis (US Athlete and LOVED by Dutch speedskating fans) said ok to an interview with Dutch media... and ignored NBC.
Eric Heiden Thumbs up all the way! Knows his athletes, knows their training and their races in the past few years.... He should have been conducting the interview, but alas...”

“have you actually watched any of NBC's Olympic coverage?
your comment that they only cover American athletes is false”
I wonder if OK wants a list of women who have had an abortion if they keep tabs on how many men impregnante women... just wondering....”

“Right-wing men never cause pregnancies. The women get pregnant all by themselves, because of their sinful, liberal ways and desire to go on welfare. They need to take responsibility for making themselves pregnant, not expect to get maternity care, and be for public education cuts so their children don't get indoctrinated with talk about contraceptives.”
“It is sad to watch the greatest nation come to its demise.... over 1.5 million people are now below the poverty level.... How many people are without healthinsurance...? And you have a discussion about this with those who have a fabulous healthcare plan & DO NOT want reform .... seems a lil backwards to me....”

“Wasn't that 1.5 million more people below the poverty line? Giving a total of 40 million below the line?”

“this is the new caveman mentality that the elite want for the working class. they've separated themselves enough from mainstream society, with their private neighborhoods, private clubs, private schools, etc.
meanwhile they bought up all sources of media: tv, radio, text book publishers, etc. and they've slowly changed the content to where people try to justify kiddie porn as free speech and bloodsport as entertainment.
soon there will be a nation of savages and the elite in their high towers, manipulating world finances from the internet and watching us fight over basic resources like food and water.”

“We have the means to help the uninsured without destroying quality health care for the rest of us. Congress and the Administration are derelict in their duty of working out a truly bipartisan solution.”
“Despite lower than expected profits, insurers are not holding back. The industry already set records from January to March, “when health-care firms and their lobbyists spent money at the rate of $1.4 million a day” on campaigns designed to influence the health care reform legislation now moving through Congress”
“To campare Obama to Hitler as in the picture should be a felony .... what on earth are these people thinking!! Come Bergen Belsen or Auschwitz and bring your sign!!! We'll show you the history of it all! No seriously!
From a European point of view ...: Take your flag out of your churches... think on your own 2 feet and understand that there are people out there who NEED health-insurance..... and if you are okay with the way things are then you just opt out of the plan... but dont come running to us when you cant pay your bills!
“I think your mother hangs out with my inlaws.... they too are convinced that President O (and the entire hippymovement for that matter!) has been the end of the USA...... highly frustrating...
Additionally we ... their INFORMED daughter and me her partner are told we need to watch FOX as they are the only ones telling the truth.... "you need to get your information from a different source" ... how on earth can I inform my inlaws (their other kids are all FOXers as well) of the POSITIVE changes President O is bringing to the USA????
Being European, getting my news from ALL OVER THE GLOBE... fox has proven to be an insult to the intelligence my inlaws have underneath it all....”
“I had some respect for her..... can't blame her for making it work.... but it wasn't just one woman... it was PLURALwomen......
in the end still their decision... it is the decision of the people of South Carolina to kick him out, and they apparanlty agree with the guy....
not moving to SC anytime soon that is for sure...”
“Saw some comments that stated "understandable" but in my opinion as Unexcusable as the leaflets! Can we say the same thing to immigrants that have come to the other countries? Nortern Irish immigrants in the USA?”
