We're not talking about delisting a continent, only its media outlets. I can't think of anything more devastating.

I can think of one thing: Alphabet buys several small media outlets around the world, aggregates it all, makes it free for anyone to use and effectively makes the existing media outlet sites irrelevant.

I would love to see the look on their faces when they heard everyone was still getting news, just not from them.

It's still money.

Clinton didn't "fight" her way in, she just proved herself useful and showed she was a team player who could play ball with the best of them. The Clintons have always been the primo quid pro quo candidates, now once again calling in their chits. Not since LBJ have we seen so much political capital at play.

Trump is the designated distraction, playing pretty much the same role as Perot did. But it's just a coincidence, right? Party political platforms will hardly get an honorable mention while he's around.

How can the individual make up their mind when they are being sold fake (or even worse, adulterated) prescription drugs (as happens all the time in countries that don't regulate them carefully)? Unless everyone has their own home gas chromatograph that's just not going to work... nice troll, but no thanks.

Do you know WHY Canada, Europe, Australia, Japan, etc all have drugs at 1/10th (or less) of the cost of the US? Because they are single-payer. In a monopsony the buyer has a lot of control on the price, as opposed to the US where the drug monopolies have free reign.

Journal Journal: Establishment vs Establishment 1

The framing of the 2016 election is that this is the establishment vs the anti-establishment. Clinton represents Washington DC. Trump represents the masses.

This is bullshit.
