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.

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.

Once again lawmakers don't understand the issue.

I hate it when you people say that! They have their orders. They understand perfectly well what they are doing. It is the voters that are ignorant and stupid and thus blindly follow them. And in that ignorance it is the voters that give value to the campaign dollar. The politician is not the idiot here.

If Slashdot closed tomorrow, would Dice notice? It's not incompetence, it's apathy. Slashdot is a hollowed out shell that the spammers moved into, and it's only part of a collection of trinkets sitting on Dice's coffee table. Look at their history, nothing but a very fluid series of mergers and acquisitions. It has to be a tax thing.

Air pollution is really making us pay through the nose.
