This is one of the funniest things I have read in quite some time. Tulsa is not a real city and it is definitely not a venue for the Olympics. They have poor streets, a huge crime problem, nothing to do or see unless you want to go to casinos or Indian smokeshops and they have very few direct flights to and from TIA. These people are on crack. Tulsa does not have the infrastructure in place, roads, transportation, extra police and fire, hotel rooms, things to see and do. Tulsa has never been a destination city and never will be. When was the last time you heard someone from the East or West coast or from another country say" hey, I am head to Tulsa, OK America on my vacation this year. I hear they have ORU praying hands, some casinos, two museums and a bunch of smoke shops". Tulsans had better hope they are not selected because they would immediately become the laughing stock of the country. Its a nice place to be from, but to have pipe dreams of the Olympics is insane.

These t-evantalibanical rednecks will never get the Olympics. They don't come anywhere near representing America. Now if it's an old, fat, miserable, white guy olympics, they have a shot.

If they want the Olympics there, or want increased tourism of any kind, they'll need to hide the onslaught of Black on White hate crimes there locally. Vicious Black animals are terrorizing Whites routinely in Tulsa and something needs to be done about it. If Obama was interested in sensible race relations, he would address these and other Black on White vicious crimes and murders, telling the press to cover them and expose these animals for what they are.

Funny how the anti-government t-reds can't control their own back yard, but want the government to do it for them. Cutting the state budget means less cops, so brag about cutting taxes, then go home and hide because you cut the police force.

Odds of being a victim in Tulsa...1 in 100.

Another reason the dump won't be chosen.
