Just had a thought - if the UCI strips LA of his yellow jerseys on Monday, does Livestrong get stripped of its yellow logo?
lol yes, I knew an Amway guy and he was your typical brainwashed slightly creepy person..mewmewmew13 said:Rofl!!!!
wow, that is a creepy looking photo...like they are all standing around him in rapture....
I'm sorry but that is indeed cult-like
The Lance Armstrong Cult.
As Lance makes clear in his speech, the people on stage are employees of Livestrong, not financial supporters.ggusta said:These people look like moonies or scientologists or any other cult of personality. Lance is their Jimmy Swaggart. He could tell them anything (as if he hasn't already). They don't care, they will believe it and just keep writing checks. They're just desperate to hand over their souls to some third party so they don't have to do any heavy lifting for themselves. The ultimate outsourcing.

That said, what do you expect them to look like when they are watching their boss give a speech in which he is praising their work and calling them "the smartest people I know".
There is plenty about Armstrong to criticize without resorting to nonsensical interpretations of a photo of Livestrong staff.
I can recall occasions of at least 4 very large corporations which I have worked for that 'coerced' us to attend optional dog and pony shows when the head honchos breezed in from out of town. Anyone who asked pointed questions or spoke out of turn was dealt with severely. If you know what's good for you, you go to these things if your manager suggests it 'would be a good idea' and try not to let your disgust show too clearly on your face. They just want warm bodies there to salute the flag. If the boss sees a half empty room to greet his 'brilliant observations' and peerless leadership, my manager would catch he$l from the big boss and you know it all rolls down hill from there.Maxiton said:Yeah, they look enraptured in the photo, but if you watch the video they don't look that way. In the video they look extremely uncomfortable, and some are even rolling their eyes and making faces. These people are, I think, employees. This man is essentially their boss.
SHESSSH! THAT was funny!ggusta said:Lance: 'And for my final act of indecency after shamelessly invoking MLK to magnify this cruel charade, I am going to get wasted and boff a chick later on that will make that one that Tiger Woods nailed from Perkins look like a Victoria's Secret model.'
'Thanks for coming, it's nice to know you can fool some of the people all of the time. I'd like another double shot of anything and a shiner bock. Bottle? Where the eff are you !! ?? '
Travis has alot of credibility and he is very sincere. Yes, the difference is striking.Baroh1488 said:
