Olympic Security (Or: Tanks a Lot)

January 23, 2010 at 9:25 pm 5 comments

Oh the boys and their toys!!!  The security is beefing up in Vancouver and area as things gear up for the Old Limp Pricks in February.

For months now the chopper activity in the sky has been annoying, the frigate that’s been cruising the inlet, daunting, and the invisible forces, cameras etc. llike an itch that won’t go away.

Are we supposed to be afraid?  Good question because maybe, just maybe if the public knew how many of the security guards are addicts ‘under control’ , maybe , just maybe their fear would translate to keeping their wallets safe on a chain or in a purse with a non-rip handle that zips tight , tight, tight.  How about the biz of money belts  and those other safety stashes?

This is just so strange.  Ya, of course I know some addicts who were hired but in today’s job market and with harm reduction #1,  and the amount of  unemployment out there, let’s just call it a strange marriage of crack meets tracks, junk meets trunks, methadone meets super dome.

Some guy for the Vancouver Sun estimates the billion dollar security cost breaks down to $60 per canadian, and $120 for every British Columbian.  And for what? So we can watch the world’s top winter athletes compete, while what’s REALLY going on sports wise is all the rich people attending doing a giant icebert schmooze-fest.   Hmmm.

Good luck, security personell…remember, for a salary that’s still under the poverty line and only there for a month, we are depening on you to keep the Three Piece Suit Terrorists IN , and let the tourists back out.

    You might as well take $1 billion and flush it down the fucking toilet as far as I’m concerned. This is really obscene and offensive. Today, as the torch comes through Rossland,I will be out protesting. My sign says “housing and health care, not Owe-lympics.” I hope I don’t get arrested! I’ll keep you posted on my blog.
