Disappointment About the Amazing Race- Bad Behavior

Just watched the Amazing Race. Globetrotters U-turned the cowboys even though they were  ahead of them. It was the rudest, nastiest thing I've ever seen on the show. Hoping karma bites them in the *$#. I hate rude people. They were going to win anyway. Idiots.
    Amazing Race Fans - REMEMBER that the Globetrotters purposely knocked Sam (of Sam and Dan) off the wooden walkway and into the marsh a couple of seasons ago? They cheated then to win, and they've proven that they're simply hateful by U-Turning the cowboys. If only there were penalties for being hateful.
   CBS Should PENALIZE people who share answers. The Race is about a Race of Talents - not cheating. It's become more like that stupid "Survivor" show. The cowboys have many fans because 1) They're never rude to another team 2) they haven't cheated - Therefore cheating should not be allowed. I Suggest 2 Hour Penalities at the finish line for Teams that share answers.
  TOM SAID: What disturbs me is that CBS allows the “cheating” in the first place. It’s almost like they’re condoning such behavior, which only perpetuates it. Like the author of the book I’m reading writes: when did our society become so “mean?” CBS’ airing of this show is perpetuating that stereotype – that liars and cheats are the American way, and that’s the way to get ahead. THAT is what is disturbing to me.  
  The Amazing Race thing bothers me greatly because mean people, and people who cheat are allowed to continue to behave badly. Mean people shouldn't be rewarded nor spotlighted. They should be penalized and face consequences.  The producers of the race are letting mean people and cheaters  get away with things. It's wrong and a bad example for viewers AND for the world to see Americans behave so badly.

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
