Rio Olympics 2016

The last olympics I saw were the Olympics of 1992 held in Barcelona, Spain and I was just  a kid back then.  I saw this news piece on CBS Morning News that really put into perspective the Useless waste of money for an event that only last 17 days. Brazil is going through the worst recession in the last 25 years and according to a poll 67% of Brazilians think hosting the Olympics is a terrible idea.  They cut funds for Health and Education in order to build the oversize stadiums that most likely will be left to rot after the Olympics are over. Wasting (that is the proper word not spending) such exorbitant amounts of money, especially in a country in economic crisis is a not a good idea from my point of view.
