That is quite possible but no, I'm not giving up a thing. FWIW my political stance nowdays is that the question is no longer about left vs right. Instead its about 1% vs 99%... hence support for Bernie. He's already breaking some funding records, over 4 mil from small donors so far as we speak

Yes, especially when some or all of said product was made overseas by a supposedly US corporation. I become deeply ashamed of such purchases. But then again, my ENTIRE INDUSTRY was offshored back in the 80's for the most part. The only guys left stateside are the specialty niche players and the extremely innovative. So innovative that 2 men now do the jobs of hundreds. Some 60,000 factories have gone bye-bye... so yeah, I know about the effects of cheaper purchases.

I've noticed that soclopaths can't seem to tell the difference between jealousy and anger. For some reason they also seem to need black-letter law for guidance, instead of morals.

Sure. Vote 'em out. Politicians should not be so easily corruptible (which is why I support publically funded campaigns and term limits) .But what about the ones who are *doing the corrupting*? Just let them off scot free? I don't think so... unfortunately the SEC and the FED is so thoroughly compromised as to be worthless.

+5, insightful (although I admit bias as a US skilled blue-collar worker).

Unfortunately I doubt they will ever do away with these so-called free trade agreements for the simple reason that there's so much money being made. It the corporate lobbyists that write those things.

+ - Police officer suspended for slapping citizen for refusing a warrantless search 6

Yesterday police were contacted in regard to a video posted online which appeared to show an inappropriate interaction between an on-duty member of the Sheriff’s Office and a civilian, resulting from a suspicious vehicle complaint in the Town of Halfmoon.

The Sheriff’s Office has identified and interviewed all parties involved in the interaction and as a result, the police officer has been suspended without pay effective immediately, pending the outcome of the investigation and possible disciplinary action.

Make sure you watch the video. It is very clear that the officer did not know he was being recorded. It is also clear to me that his behavior in this situation was not unusual, that this police officer is quite used to using violence to get his way, regardless of the law. Had the recording not existed, however, he would not have been suspended, and would not be likely to lose his job.

The recording did exist, however, which has forced the Saratoga police force to take action.

Entropy isn't what it used to be.
