Well, the citizens didn't complain much, and they reelected most of that congress, and a president that lied when he promised to do something to correct it, so what's the problem? The numbers indicate a high approval of all this.
No effort required. People are marking their territory and protecting their turf. It's a perfectly natural reaction to one's environment. It really is automatic, unconscious, instinctive. Don't read anything into it. And definitely don't single anyone out, unless you're just trolling your buddy there, as he is you...
Why should the Pentagon have all the fun?
It's you and d_r trolling each other. I just like to put the occasional peanut onto the tracks.
Yeah, of dynamite... I definitely think the same tools should be applied to computers.
Chipmunks can sing Jingle Bells
One man, against all that wealth/power. Asking for a bit much, no? I don't see how he could survive any real attempt to correct that problem. Nobody ever has. The most it ever accomplishes is a shift. The finances will become more obscure and no less concentrated. It will take the backing of the entire Catholic clergy to make a dent, and they will have to do it in the absence of an easy to target leader.
Unfortunately that's all you're doing.. simply repeating the same old shit.
Pretty soon they'll all be stolen, kinda like land
I think that the corruption--we see it afoot in blue states today...
You are so completely bonkers, and fixated,and obsessed! That, or your sense of humor is superb..
If we are going to be in fishbowl, the big fish should also.
Apparently the mods disagree. They'd rather carry on with this little charade. They don't see that every anomaly and 'disturbance' is recorded and can be traced to a source. It is so naive to believe that there is any 'privacy'. The only argument left is what can be done with the info. Right now we give it too much power to too few people. So I'm always for those who can leak it all. Time for those who make the rules to feel the pain.
It's over, Johnny. It's over...
What has to be done then, is the opposite. Deny privacy to everybody... Make the whole world completely and absolutely transparent. Make information worth nothing, where the main reaction is, "eh".. Just don't let anything be used against you. The word has no power, only the act.
...what's the downside if the ancient mythology correlates with modern science?
One of the biggest industries on the planet would cease to exist. It would create economic chaos. Next thing you know, nihilism... and anarchy!
Yes, I did, unfortunately. Unless I'm missing some sarcasm there, you are obviously posting propaganda. And you didn't answer the question.
Yeah, two! What are you? A moron?
Why should I be forced to engorge some dick full of money when I know they will spend most of their time and efforts denying their payment obligations when I do get sick?
