The funny part is how much more earned media/bandwidth consumption the Cruz campaign got out of casting a "woman of ill repute" for the video than if the advertisement had simply run.
I haven't heard anyone from the "left" describe the actress with porn experience in such a disparaging light. I for one question rather she really qualifies as "porn star" - as some have described her - but the notion that she is of "ill repute" (as you said) is not supported at this point.
Regardless, the Cruz campaign - by way of their superPAC and the various other superPACs that are moving towards them - would have bought that much media attention some other way. Your friends from the establishment will coalesce behind him in an effort to stop Trump from taking the nomination. Then we will find out who can really buy your part of the democracy.
Is buying a mouse or trackball too expensive for your budget?
No, but I am opposed to paying for a shitty pointing device when there exist laptops on the market that have really good pointing devices. Besides, if I buy a laptop and then an additional pointing device to go with it, I then have to find a place to set said additional pointing device when I am using the laptop, which means I likely won't be able to use it on the bus, train, or airplane. The weight and space savings of their design has also just fallen dramatically when the hardware selection is so awful that I am obligated to carry something else with me to make it a productive machine.
I'm not familiar with this strange new meaning of "making shit up"...
Yeah, you are kinda dumb, too.
Your mother's ugly.
If you'd ever like to have a discussion, please let me know. It would be quite a surprise, although I'll hold on to there being perhaps a nonzero chance of it happening.
China is due for a massive correction in the economy. Debt driven growth has reached saturation and from now on, we will see a lot of deleveraging and money being printed (ie. QE) to prevent deflation.
Acquisitions is one of the best ways to swap depreciating Yuan assets (to use as collateral) and turn them into foreign assets. As the likelihood that CNY will devalue increases, you will see more and more of these desperate deals.
