Dude, you are just a guitarist who is full of shit himself.

Playing guitar is a hobby. I have degrees in several fields and experience in many more. Everything from designing missile and torpedo navigation/targeting systems to working on avionics and telemetry systems in the Enterprise space shuttle that were later incorporated into the working space shuttles.

As far as GWB, he's a Progressive and I despise much of what he did. You are correct he was a crony-capitalist just like every POTUS we've had for decades.

The rest of your post is nonsense and/or irrelevant, as the accusations against the US and what I was refuting were that we were invading Iraq to steal their oil. Which was and is utter bullshit.

Either way, the government sure goes out of its way to make sure people don't get high.

But at the end of the day, we all have our poisons. A college student has their weed, a business exec has their coke, a trailer park resident has their meth, and a hippie has their LSD. I of course, am a gamer, so my poison is sugary sodas. I got off of it for a while and thought my addiction was gone, but then I started using again recently, and strangely the DEA doesn't mind in my case.

Maybe not the DEA (for now) but the city of New York does. 20 Oz limit, citizen! And don't think you're going to find a salt-shaker at your table in a NYC restaurant, either.

Why shouldn't males and females be in the same pool? All people should be in one pool for maximum efficiency. The only way insurance works is for healthy to subsidize non-healthy. That includes pregnant and non-pregnant.

Hey! You've got a point there!

Who needs individual plans to fit individual needs and widely-varying individual financial resources? One size fits all, right?

In the interests of state efficiency, we should also have everyone live in identical housing units, wear identical clothing, parse news sources down to one official source, eat identical meals, and have cars only made in one model and color!

Yes, it's going to be awesome when you tell over half the country that they have no say in government at the national level. That will turn out well.

That's exactly what got Trump elected. President-elections-have-consequences-I've-got-a-pen-and-a-phone and his followers are responsible for Trump, along with the Republicans who are liberal-Progressives that fold the moment anything that requires a spine and/or principles comes up.

Between those two groups Americans felt they had no say, so they elected somebody they hope will burn the whole thing down.

Nice going, assholes!

Googled it for you. Halliburton alone made $39.5 billion off the Iraq war. Does truth matter to you?

How much have Russian companies who supply Russian military with goods and services profited from Russia's military aggressions? How much did British companies make from the Falklands conflict?

Why is the US the only one ever called out?

*THAT* is my point and what nobody will address.

If a company gets $1 when the taxpayers lose $1000, it's still pure profit.

By that standard, every war by every nation that went to war would qualify. What makes the US the exception to be dumped on? What about Russia's invasions of Ukraine and Crimea?

Such fickle and flexible 'standards'!

Anyway: you get a much quicker return on your money by invading a country like Iraq than you do investing in longer term clean energy.

Yeah, I'm pissed off! Where's all the riches and oil we were supposed to get from Iraq after we invaded? The US got snookered on that deal. We went and invaded Iraq and everything, and all we got was a deficit increase!

Or...maybe you're full of shit and spouting lies like a typical Leftist useful-idiot that is only capable of repeating the propaganda fed to you because you're too stupid or lazy to search out the truth yourself, or just so filled with hate and so caught up in your political/ideological pissing contest that truth doesn't matter, as long as you can *hurt* those you are told you're supposed to hate.

Ah yes, I forgot that criticizing someone's views means that you think they shouldn't be able to express them.

Random idiot makes a strawman out of people he disagrees with, news at 11.

Quite frankly, I could not give two shits about their views because their "views" are based on racism, hatred, and lies like 'hands up don't shoot'. Views, opinions, etc are like assholes...everyone has them and most stink.

What I *do* care about are the criminal acts they commit like inciting and committing acts of violence and murder. Dead cops and random white people assaulted do not a strawman make.

If you are unable to differentiate between the two you need to seek psychological help, as you are a danger to yourself and others.

Getting rid of Flash as a default, loaded-as-needed plugin is a good thing. I mean, it's one of the biggest sources of malware these days - it really shouldn't be allowed to run by default, especially when alternatives exist.

Yet some stuff on YouTube still doesn't work when I run Chromium (sans PepperFlash).

Google have your people call your people.

Pre-Obamacare, there were many plans that had a low annual cap.

That's because those rotten insurance companies didn't mandate their plans for males include pregnancy and breast exam coverage!

The sexist bastages!

Now, every male covered under Obamacare can rest easy knowing they're covered in case they get knocked-up. If it costs more that's OK because after all, all wealth is the property of the government and we're lucky they generously allow us to keep some of it for our own selfish needs like shelter, food, etc.
