Ralph Lauren & the U.S. Olympic Committee go to hell

Jul 13, 2012 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: Daily Kos

I am so angry right now that the U.S. Olympic Committee allowed Ralph Lauren have the outfits that our athletics will wear in the opening and closing of the London Olympics made in China.

Congress is going ballistic over Team USA Olympic Uniforms. The price, of all this made-in-China ‘young republican look’— if you for some reason want to buy it —$598 for the women’s blazer and $498 for the silk skirt. The men’s blazer is a staggering $795, flat front trousers $295 and nubuck shoes are $165. And that damn beret?$55. Now remember, these are the same guys who brought us the 16 Trillion federal debt – what a bunch of f-ing losers they are! At least the USOC is not spending tax-payers money ...

You are correct that this is not US taxpayer money, so why does the cost concern you? and no, the gov't officials that brought you our debt had nothing to do with this decision.
