    Even Gold Medals have Dark Clouds

    We've always known he's an idiot, but this is a new low.

    Even air rifle sports suffer from the libtard mentality.
    Guard with jealous attention the public liberty.
    Suspect everyone who approaches that jewel.
    Unfortunately, nothing will preserve it but downright force.
    Whenever you give up that force, you are inevitably ruined.
    -Patrick Henry, Virginia Ratification Convention, June 5, 1788

    From the TownHall link
    Naturally, Piers Morgan had to try to take away from her incredible victory by making fun of the sport she played, tweeting that it was the "least surprising breaking news ever" that an American athlete had been victorious in a shooting sport.
    And from USAToday today
    The sport of shooting has become caught up in discussions over gun rights and the associated political debate. Thrasher’s teammate, six-time Olympian Kim Rhode, spoke earlier this week about how new gun measures in her state of California had affected her training because she must complete extensive background checks to buy ammunition for practice. Rhode is an outspoken member of the National Rifle Association and previously spoke on the matter at the 2012 Republican National Convention.
    Thanks NOT for wasting our time.

    Actually this is an opportunity (and the lib-tards have fallen for it) to show just how retarded they are.

    Piers Morgan and even 'Wil Wheaton' had stuck their foot in it. He tweeted something disparaging and then had to backtrack and say he was joking.

    Here it is:

    America's first gold medal in the 2016 Olympics was won by a teenager for shooting. Because we now live inside @TheOnion.

    Right. No, he's just showing his ignorance. Oh, and even though he was good in 'Stand by Me', I take issue with the press calling him 'Actor' Wil Wheaton. He's a has-been. Hopefully now, more than before.

    Thank you, Nightmare, for providing the Fair-Use-Quotes of the articles for discussion.

    I'm curious, though I'm sure I can guess the correct answer, even though I don't have TV: Was America's first opportunity at a Gold Medal even televised here? Or were we instead forced to watch two other countries play to a 1-1 tie in a qualifying soccer round or something?

    The media only shows you what they want you to see....even of the Olympics.

    Today we had Ping Pong.
