British Athletes Muzzled on China

As the communist regime in China prepares to host the Olympic games this summer, it won't have to worry about criticism from British athletes.  According to The Daily Mail, British athletes are being forced to sign contracts prohibiting criticism of the host government as a condition for participation in the games.

Once again, I'm happy and proud that our forefathers sought fit cut ties with England in 1776.  Let's hope that U.S. Olympic Committee remembers the First Amendment and that American athletes are brave enough to speak out in China.
