War is doing a horrible job. Grinding poverty through a corrupt economic system is much more effective, and doesn't carry all the bad PR.
You are just repeating your same old bullshit. You really do make everything very clear. The brain is turned off. You may as well donate it to some study group.
It may seem illegal, but it doesn't seem to matter. The voters are letting it slide...
You ever watch Professional Poker on ESPN? I think one of the coolest things is to see the players, athletes, if you will, smoking cigars during a match. You don't see that in too many sports. Well, maybe football... You get my drift, right?
Why? Doesn't anybody understand who they work for? I, for one, fully expect this. In fact I would be surprised if they didn't do what they are doing. It is the voters who abdicated their responsibility to oversee their government. Democracy is high maintenance. It is not *set it and forget it* for two years.
Don't be so fast to write them off. The election results confirm they have lots of followers. You can *tell them so* all you want. It just doesn't matter, they are standing behind their boy, and Bill O'Reilly also, and all the other deviants and misfits that can rouse a rabble. Pay attention to the real numbers, they are not losing any ground. It is pure primitive animal tribalism. That's politics for you.
An 'emergency order' will extend the rule until Congress comes back from a very well deserved vacation from their hard work
The voters decide to keep the party in power. They (you) just follow along. There is nothing that compels them to. That's the way it works. Your continuous blame game is bullshit.
Just wait until Ted Cruz's 'self esteem' issues come to light. As is often true, the noisiest ones in this business are the least secure, and they are trying to cover up.
No. That is not how it works.
Well, it must be, if we are supposed crap like this:
Unfortunately Bernie can't raise enough money to be taken seriously by those who have the power to select a candidate...
It's the voters who select their candidates, or allow them to be selected by someone else. It's all very simple.
And your sloppy JE post is sloppy, barely legible. Your vote is not the only thing that reflects your laziness and apathy. Now, once again, let's hear you blame Slashdot.
If a guy can't raise enough money, you are prohibited from voting for him or taking him seriously? Can you tell me what is the compelling interest that could do that?
Call your bookie.
Turn off the equipment, and take up knitting...
Public relations... What was everybody expecting?
I think the red herring is the 'increased production'. It never happened. Prices are set arbitrarily, just like interest rates. And we all know how well Libor handles that little business. To think that petro/dollar rates are set any different is totally naive. The whole 'supply and demand' thing is a complete fantasy outside the itty-bitty local market.
Looks like you haven't figured out who the politicians serve. Greedy, lying, clever, conniving little rats with illusions of grandeur, absolutely, the only stupid ones are those that lose, or get caught. They don't need to 'know' anything. The lobbyists tell their aides (they all carry their own stories) who tell them who to speak with and how to vote.
