" Over the past decade Texas has convicted 51 people of voter fraud, according the state's Attorney General Greg Abbott. Only four of those cases were for voter impersonation, the only type of voter fraud that voter ID laws prevent.
Nationwide that rate of voter impersonation is even lower.
Out of the 197 million votes cast for federal candidates between 2002 and 2005, only 40 voters were indicted for voter fraud, according to a Department of Justice study outlined during a 2006 Congressional hearing. Only 26 of those cases, or about
And yet I'm sure you think having to wait 3 days to purchase a lethal weapon is a burdensome and onerous infringement on your 2nd amendment rights.
Gee, I wonder why? I'm sure billionaire oligarchs, and corrupt CCP members have no use for a new money laundering mechanism? (not to mention drug cartels and warlords)
I think the poster means Secretary of State for Defence. The difference being that unlike the American Secretary of Defense, the British secretary holds an elected
office (in the case of Philip Hammond, representing Runnymede and Weybridge), and does not need Parliamentary approval to serve. His US counterpart needs Senate confirmation to serve.
So on the one hand due to executive incompetence, product quality suffers, sales go down and the stock tanks, then some CXX suggest cutting down on office space and having employees telecommute to save on overhead, then due to executive incompetence and marketing/sales trumping product design and innovation, sales go down, and the stock tanks. Now they say they need employees to come in to the (now non-existent) offices, yet something tells me that it's just another example of executive incompetence resulting in poor sales, bad products and the stock tanking.
"The classical education (what you're describing) is dead," for the 99% But I can assure you that elite private schools in NY and LA DON'T focus on standardized tests
I guess the rulers do want their children to think (and take over).
"There you will see that despite blacks making up 13% of the population in the US, they are [arrested] for a significantly greater proportion
of violent crime."
That's a more accurate statement. Also, what's more likely. people with higher melanin levels are more violent, or laws written
by the majority population are biased against the minority population.
You're confusing cause and effect. Gerrymandering is an effect of the two-party system, not the cause.
For instance, Jeffrey D. Sachs attributes two-dominant parties in the US as a result of First-past the Post voting. "Members of Congress are elected in single-member districts according to the 'first-past-the-post' (FPTP) principle, meaning that the candidate with the plurality of votes is the winner of the congressional seat. The losing party or parties win no representation at all. The first-past-the-post election tends to produce a small number of major parties, perhaps just two, a principle known in political science as Duverger's Law. Smaller parties are trampled in first-past-the-post elections."

Arguably if Silk Road was truly underground and you had to know people who know people and use

" It's really, really okay to just have a show be for entertainment and not for social engineering."
And this is Doctor Who you're talking about? Let's see, 1) he doesn't carry a gun, is a pacifist 2) is ostensibly an atheist. 3) is anti imperialist. In other words, Dr. Who is an old-fashioned liberal.
"The Mutants was one of the most blatant of the shows run, hitting targets such as race discrimination, colonisation and apartheid head on and is, at times pretty heavy going."
So there's already plenty of "social engineering" going on in Doctor Who. It's not just entertainment (it's produced by the BBC after-all)
"Bachiller polled in 18th place when she ran for a seat with the People’s Party (PP) in the last municipal elections. She replaced another councillor, Jesus Garcia Galvan, who had to resign his seat a month ago on account of charges of bribery and malfeasance in office."
So really her nomination had more to do with the scandals of another Councillor, than with PC.
