"The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter." -- Same
Blaming the tools.. when the workaround is so trivial that you can't be arsed, right?
I'm sorry... What is Sharpton's great 'sin'? Successfully exploiting basic instincts for a buck? Really, what's the big deal? I thought you were pro capitalism or something.
Sorry, your entire argument is bogus. If money doesn't influence me, why should it influence you or anybody else? You vote for the people you like. Pay no attention to the people trying to influence them with their damn money, no matter where they come from. It is totally irrelevant. Just watch who takes it. They are the traitors. And if you vote for them, then you are too..
I endorse nobody, as you should know by now after all this time. I provided my preferred method of dealing with this crap. Take it or leave it, I just don't give a damn. I only want my Köstritzer... My damn supplier cut out on me, so I'm in a bad mood... Sorry.. Maybe you can tell me why it's easier to get a bag of coke...
Just find a way to circumvent it.. and tell the rest how to to do it.
Please, forget that I even exist.... Excuse me for bumping into you. I'm playing a different game that doesn't seem to apply here.. Maybe tomorrow, when I'm sober...
Because they're just as full of shit as the rest... Look.. just ignore me, okay? I'm just venting.. I expect nothing in return. Go talk with people who give a damn... I don't...
What the hell.. got a golf clap in moderation...
Standing by for the booing and hissing into the abyss...
Come out, come out...
If they are logged and stored, they are impossible to protect without destroying the records. The best defense of privacy comes from spoofing. Unfortunate, but that's the way they want to play it.
That's just cultural bullshit that you post. The empire stands strong, and you for it... while heckling the emperor because he dresses funny.
No... Public, or private? That is the question.
You gotta elect people who will rewrite the law. Or you can call a constitutional convention. Either way, it's pretty straight up. If you vote for garbage, don't complain when you get garbage, and especially when you all reuse the same garbage for 20-30 years in some cases. And please, save me all the bullshit about money. Just tune it out.
Now, since we are dealing with a vast majority(98% at present) who will dance to anything, maybe it's time to consider alternatives to majority rule. Some sort of lottery system that would make political campaigns and party affiliations obsolete, and put an end to the career in public service. Everybody over 35 or 40 is subject to being conscripted in. Give them some time to experience life first. Make it like the military, do your three years, and then GTFO, with a small severance, of say six months pay, which would also be reduced to a less obscene level.. You'll still get the occasional Hillary Clinton and Sarah Palin, Pelosi, and Cruz, but they won't have the powerful financial alliances and the time to cause any irreparable damage. Regardless of what system you use, if you don't apply proper oversight, you are farting into the wind..
You can always bet against it... Betting is the only value you will ever derive from this game, unless you're an insider, of course. Considering your support for things as they are, that's a distinct possibility, aside from your present government job.
It's just that you guys are so fun to watch. Think of your audience! You might even have a shot at putting your little pajama party pillow fight on FOX. You'd both fit right in with the rest of the crowd over there.
What, should they be paid in bananas? I mean, what's the problem? If I'm going through the effort to help them tap into my line, I would want to be compensated also. Seems only fair.
And to all those people out there complaining about the government, and then turning around and reelecting the sons of bitches, I don't have any family safe words to say. I believe the proper British phrase is, Piss off!
