Hit them in the wallet

I have had it with the 2010 olympic games and all they stand for.

I am sick of our social safety net being systematically stripped to cover the ever increasing costs
I am sick of draconian legislation being imposed upon us to keep the IOC and Vanoc happy
I am sick of the sexism that will keep world class athletes from competing.

Yes, I should probably link to examples of all this stuff, but I am absolutely disgusted by it all and I just can't bring myself to hit teh google for it.

What I did do, was find a list of sponsors, partners etc of the 2010 oympics which I have listed below. I will be printing it off and checking it often so that I can be sure to give my patronage to businesses not on it.
