"Most of the stagnation of wages has just been from moving most of the jobs to exploited labor countries like China"

Not really. The stagnation of wages has also been from an ever increasing cut of the profits going to the owners rather than wage increases.

"People have no right to vote for guys with guns to go around stealing the wealth that taxpayers create just because they'd like free money"

Not sure what you mean.

"The new charge comes after the prosecutor dropped criminal trespassing charges. State’s Attorney Ladd R. Erickson filed the new charges on Friday before District Judge John Grinsteiner who will decide on Monday (October 17) whether probable cause exists for the riot charge. Goodman has travelled to North Dakota to face the charges and will appear at Morton County court on Monday at 1:30 p.m. local time (CDT) if the charges are approved. "I came back to North Dakota to fight a trespass charge. They saw that they could never make that charge stick, so now they want to charge me with rioting," said Goodman. "I wasn’t trespassing, I wasn’t engaging in a riot, I was doing my job as a journalist by covering a violent attack on Native American protesters."

No, I don't think they are breaking the law, but nice touch beginning of your FAA quote a capital letter "T" and finishing it before the "if" :

Federal Aviation Administration plans and policies, including this
subtitle, the Administrator of the Federal Aviation Administration may not promulgate any rule or regulation regarding a model aircraft, or an aircraft being developed as a model aircraft, if — (1) etc, etc

"democracy was only going to work if people stuck together and they didn't"

The "people" and "they" ? Foreign financed administration and politicians, foreign financed military, mercenary 'gangs', a part of the middle class, and some atheists ?

"And as for what Egyptians are hoping for themselves and their children, I try not to think about it too much. It's too discomforting."

That's the real "they". Secular and religious. They want democracy. They got more corruption and death instead because of ...

"The oil states are pumping tens of billions of dollars into Egypt to support the current regime, try to match that."

Last I looked the US were only putting in 2 billion yearly, but I agree, and it wouldn't be the first time they lost control to a monster they helped create.
