Considering the joke that the legal system of the US has evolved into, I have a hard time making an informed decision whether this is the right or the wrong thing to do.
Or you're "too big to fail". Too bad his drug cartel didn't fund weapons deals with terror groups that "we" like, then he'd probably be celebrated as a true American hero instead.
If you follow that logic to its end, I guess a couple of gun manufacturers should now be sweating into their boots.
I think it's because of the freedoms that still exist.
He didn't use the money he made selling drugs to fund weapons deals to destabilize a few countries, and I think if you don't do that dealing drugs is illegal. Or something like that.
Next time if you want to rip off people, swindle them out of their money, flaunt your condescendence towards the law and be a scourge of society, run a bank. Not only is it far more efficient than some petty drug dealing, it's also safer. The worst that can happen if things go wrong is that you get bailed out.
I did. I told him about it and he asked me to stop talking, he has a sensitive stomach.
I stopped caring a while ago. Why should I? Most idiots don't care that they're being lied to. Those that do already noticed the same I did: It doesn't matter that you notice it. It's not like you can do anything about it.
Right now, I'm just sitting here, waiting for our economy to collapse in the vain hope that something better might emerge. I just don't really think there will be anything better. Different maybe, but better, hardly. Human won't change. And whether this or that asshole rules us, and this or that asshole lies to us, where's the difference? In the end it's like voting, you may only choose the person, group or entity that is given the right to fill their pockets at your expense. The option that you'd get someone who doesn't do it simply does not exist.
So apologies if I just sit here, relax and watch the world burn. Fighting windmills is more a pastime of the younger generations.
The problem about propaganda, especially in this day and age, is that everyone does it. I wouldn't be too surprised if the same shit goes down on our side of the fence. Just 'cause our media are "free" doesn't mean that they have to tell the truth. It only means their lies may be different from the government's.
Seriously, I'd pay for a halfway decent, balanced NEWS system that gives me news instead of propaganda of this or that flavor. How long 'til the definition of "impartial" is to watch both sides of the propaganda in the vain hope to maybe find the truth in the blend?
Journalism is dead. What matters is sensationalism and entertainment.
Propaganda is just marketing for a brand called a nation.
I can see how eating a burger and fruit at the same time makes you lose weight. I at least would certainly puke.
Of course, if you take in less energy than you expend then yes, you will have to burn whatever reserves your body has. True. Is it the most efficient way to lose weight? No. Is it something people can actually do? Hell no. You still have to work. And if you thought a smoker trying to quit smoking is kinda grumpy, just wait 'til you see someone not eating right for a few days.
Most people mistake a free press with a press that can (or even wants to) tell the truth. The only thing a free press means is that the press may tell different lies than the government.
By your body going into starvation mode. C'mon, it's not that hard to look up how to lose weight sensibly, it's all over the web. Some of those tips are even good. Hint: It's the ones that don't want to sell you their miracle cure crap.
Bar? If your chocolate is solid enough not to require a spoon because that's how it crumbles, it's not pure enough!
