    Big fat hairy deal.

    More proof that Nixon was one of the shittiest of shitty sellout republicans.

    The number of Olympic Gold medals earned by this country exploded because of that one piece of legislation.

    Title 9 was a disaster.

    Luckily for Stephen Neal, he was a good enough athlete that he was able to use his abilities to become a long-time offensive lineman for the New England Patriots.

    As for Title IX, what can you say? Just another shining example of politicians overstepping their legislative boundaries by forcing into law THEIR definitions of "fairness" and "diversity" and "tolerance" and "political correctness" and "equality".

    Look at the medal winners from 2008:

    United States at the 2008 Summer Olympics - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Then look at the medal winners from 40 years earlier:

    United States at the 1972 Summer Olympics - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Pretty much says it all.

    See how many Americans won medals in Gymnastics in 72:

    Gymnastics at the 1972 Summer Olympics - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    How many in 2008:

    Gymnastics at the 2008 Summer Olympics - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    That's ZERO in 72, 9 in 2008. Because of Title IX.

    Those are just facts.

    I'm sure that the USA winning more medals in the Olympic games has NOTHING to with the dissolution of the Soviet bloc countries, or the fact that many more Olympic events have been added since 1972. :eek:
