"Layla Mohammed Mo Kelly. Here with you. The Olympics are almost here, and there's more controversy. In advance of it. Then I think I've remembered in many, many decades. As a matter of fact, a lot of controversy. Yeah, let's start with chef Cary Richardson. I mean, everyone knows the story by now, you know, testing positive for marijuana, and so she will be out of the 100 M dash. She's such a talented runner. I mean, this was her moment could have been. It could have been her moment. We know the International Olympic Committee. They're not going to Change their mind. They're just not us Anti Doping agency. They did this not going to change their mind at this point. This petition right now on move on dot org is asking to sign this petition to let her run nearly 500,000 signatures. The goal is 500,000. It's at 4 99 409. That's my problem with these petitions. They wrongly present the idea that if you just sign a petition somewhere that that's going to affect change, be a legislative be an Olympic. What have you is just a petition. And that's what I want people to understand. If you were to conversations, there's the conversation of marijuana. Is it an antiquated rules? Should it be changed for the purpose of Olympic competition? Let's have that discussion. But if you're gonna change rules and guidelines, you got to do it before the Olympics Well before. Right. And so at this point, if you know how how the Olympics work, they're just they're not going to change their mind. They're just not On this or any other things that are up for discussion. Not because everyone else has been competing with those same rules. You're going to say Wait a minute. You're gonna make an allowance for her weeks before the Olympics and I've been training this full time and been tested. Does it suck? Yes, is the rule old, especially if it's if marijuana is legal? Where was she? An Oregon. However, she if marijuana is legal, Yeah, it's old, but they're not going to do it today, but it's also it's about competition. And marijuana is not about what you do in your private life. It's about having a drug free competition. Let's not forget marijuana mass. Ped use mass steroid use, and it also is a pain dampener. If you want to train and recover, it helps in that regard, So it's not just performance neutral, and she had said that she used it as a way to cope with her mother's death. Which occurred a few days before the Olympic trials. I hate to see her miss out on this 100 M Dash. This was her moment to prove She's the fastest in the world. And, um, it sucks. I'm sympathetic to her. Yeah, it sucks. But but they're going to were positive move forward and say Nope, not happening. Not changing. So here's the other story. Speaking of the Olympics, why is that the Catholic on only for men? Uh huh. Don't have a good answer for that. It's a good question. I don't know. But there's no good reason. I mean, obviously, it must be steeped in chauvinism. I no pun intended. I was like, Is that a punch? People chase? Yeah, guy. Uh, but there was a movement that, uh, Jordan Gray, who wants to bring a woman's decathlon to the Olympics? Let women to Cath Alon. Nearing 20,000 petition signatures in favour of adding the event to the Olympic Games in the name of gender equality and track and field, which I don't have an issue with that. It makes no sense. Talk about antiquated. There's no reason why the decathlon, be it a javelin throw. What have you or hammer or whatever steeplechase Is somehow reserve for only men. It just makes no sense, hopefully moving forward. I mean, this is I think it's a valid point. They can compete in other things that just can't compete in this. Hopefully moving forward. They can make this happen. Uh, but think about it. The the events individually. The 110 M hurdles, the long jump, high jump pole vault. This was throw shot Put Javelin, Uh, with the exception? No, including the javelin. There are Women equivalent events individually. Just not collectively for the decathlon. Weird, right? I didn't know I didn't know this was actually a thing. But you mentioned the shot Put and discus, So I don't know if you were involved in track and fill in your younger years. I was up until, like, high school. And after that I was too slow. So I was the person in high school because I was tall. Everyone wanted me to do everything you know. I've been 59. You're still tall. I've been 59 since I was like two. And my head was the same size. It just kind of grew into it had this big head and I'm like 59. I digress. But I did shot putting discus in high school because I played basketball. Another one of those things that was thrown into in junior high because I was tall wasn't any good at first. Still not that great, but I could rebound and block shots. I was valuable. And so in high school, I go to play high school basketball. And in the off season we all did. You had two people. Even at volleyball. They did tracks I did track. Not because I could do like 100 M Dash, but because I could go hang out over with the shot putting discus people. I was actually kind of decent. I don't know if I ever placed in anything. I can't remember. I filled in for the hurdles once. And I think I came in third place. Um, but Yeah, I did shot put in this because I don't know if I did it right. I felt like I was on the team because I was just on the team. I doubt that you seem to be pretty athletically talented. You're just obviously track and field as a spring sports, So it's not Getting in the way of basketball this condition that's what it was. We would run, you know, condition every run, run laps, run one miles and stuff to warm up. And so we had to do something in the off season. So I did, uh, track and field and Yeah, I was part of the team with shot Put and discus. But let's connect these stories. I might have a picture for you Keep talking about just texted me Some pictures recently. Go ahead. I'm listening. But let's connect these stories. So if you're going to include that the Kathlyn for women You start now you start moving forward. And then maybe for the 2024 games of the 2028 games. Oh, my goodness. There's a picture of you doing the shot, but you know you gotta You have to put that on Instagram. Yeah, I know. I don't know if I was any good. It doesn't matter. You see my form and this is when I played basketball. Had I had the Holly Berry short hair cutting in high school. Look at you. Well, don't look like that. Because that girl you're looking at his old movie girl of 17. Please stop. Not like I'm just saying, like version, okay? Now you gotta make it weird. We can't say mm into the 17 year old version anyway, not playing..

"Here. I know a lot of folks have already left the office today. I think we shut down already. Strangely enough, though, on Friday it's not much different than any other day. After about one o'clock in the afternoon. All right, so we go to chef Cary Richardson, who qualified for the Tokyo Olympics, having around 100 M and 10.8 seconds during the Olympic trials that is really fast. I ran the 100 yard dash. Last time I time myself at anything. I think I ran in 14 4. It was pretty slow everyone. I think they were using a calendar the time me Then she said her trial results that had been a race, but she's now ineligible. Why? Because the United States anti Doping agency announced that she tested positive for marijuana. She smoked pot. And she said in her apology, and I guess you've got to do this. You train your entire life to get to the Olympics and you find something like this happening. And you have to. You can't go out there looking for sympathy. You can't go out there. Trying to play the victim card in this, she said. I want to apologize for my actions. I know what I did. I know what I'm supposed to do. I'm allowed not to do and I still made the decision not making excuses are looking for any empathy and in my case Now, the funny part about this is you know if they tested her, and they found her. Well, she's loaded with testosterone or something like this. She's loaded with a performance enhancing drug. Well, you know, you can kind of sit back and say I kind of get that. Yeah. You're not supposed to do that. You're you're out. I get that. Don't think marijuana. I don't remember anybody saying I'm gonna smoke some pot. Going to smoke my weed, and that's going to give me a boost in the weight lifting competition. Now. I don't think that's how it works. She is suspended for a month. She still may have a chance to do something at the Olympics, but More than likely it might be a little bit too late for that. It just seems very hypocritical to me. She said. She was in Oregon. She smoked it there. It's legal in Oregon. But that doesn't matter. And that's something that I think a lot of these professional leagues, especially going to have to deal with this. You know marijuana is legal in this state is not legal in that state. But is it allowed via the rules of your sport? And can the rules of your sports say you can't in just a legal substance. I suppose so. I guess I mean, if that legal substances a steroid or something along those lines, I guess they can say that. But the whole thing just seems hypocritical to me, because once again, it's all for show. The reality of it is you take Yeah, I remember reading a story with one of the one of the big stars in the NFL years ago and he was saying half the people in this league smoke pot on a daily basis is the only way we can deal with the pain of getting smashed around on a daily basis. I mean, if if they really wanted to test people They would have no league left. I don't know if that's true or not. I kinda have to believe that that probably is, they would certainly no more than I would But is that really a problem is seriously I I smoked a joint and I now can't participate in the Olympics. Well, those those are the rules. Yeah, well, they're stupid rules. And they need to change in the meantime, and this is one of the biggest Hypocrisy is I've seen in all this, so she uses a legal substance smokes a joint. Test positive for something that's not going to help her performance whatsoever. Meanwhile, you have Laurel Hubbard, a male to female transgender weightlifter, now set to make quote history unquote as the first openly transgender person to compete in the Olympic Games. The man former man now a woman competing in the women's category. Transition. Back in 2013. The Olympic Committee changed the rules in 2015, allowing transgender athletes to complete to compete rather as long as the athletes testosterone measured below 10. No animals per liter. At least a year prior to competing. This is the stupid party got to be below 10 so you can have 9.9. That's that's testosterone level. That's almost a man's testosterone level. Normal testosterone level for women is 0.5 to 2.4 in animals per liter. So they're letting somebody compete who has four times the level or is allowed to have four times the level of testosterone in her system? Than other women. And clearly has an advantage and they're not going to let Shakeri Richardson run because she smoked a joint in Oregon, where it's legal. Is it? Is there it some point? Yeah. At some point do we just say, you know, most of what we do in this country that is supposed to be is supposed to move us in one direction or solve this problem are we're going to put an end to this type of behavior. Is it time? That we just finally recognized that it's all a bunch of hypocrisy. It really is. Me too. Me too, but only if it's not somebody inconvenient to me. No. I want to vote for Joe Biden, who cares if he has a credible accuser of sexual assault with five witnesses and fall? Who cares? I want to vote for him, and I'm going to pretend it didn't happen. But that's me too. Now. Sikari Richardson smokes a joint. She's out. But somebody with four times the level of testosterone that Other women have is in And that's fair. That is what the illogical left will do for you. It's all just anybody with common sense can step back and say what in the hell is going on here? Suddenly due process is out the window. That we're going to convict because we don't personally like you, and we've heard terrible things about you. And I don't like you personally, So I'm gonna I'm gonna get you nailed to the wall. Who cares about due process? I'm going to accuse you and that's all it takes to ruin your life. But other groups. Oh, the other groups that we're just going for equality. Uh, well as we've learned, some are more equal than others. As example, here by this Weight lifter and New.
