Study Finds US Is an Oligarchy, Not a Democracy

bobbuck McCain Feingold (818 comments)

It's kinda funny that the people who rage about the Citizens United decision can't grasp that when Democrats and Republicans work so diligently together their goal is to protect incumbents. It should have been called the McCain-Feingold Incumbent Protection Act.

Study Finds US Is an Oligarchy, Not a Democracy

bobbuck Re:Are you kidding (818 comments)

Name ANY supporter of free market capitalism that supports or condones the sale of laws or people. You can't. In the USA, only the Democrats have done this.

New England Burns Jet Fuel To Keep Lights On

bobbuck Eco-terrorists! (230 comments)

Why do we let these eco-terrorists even live so far north where they have to burn up all the world's fuel? It's not like any of these people are actual lumberjacks who need to live there. They might as well be eating spotted owls on rye bread with mayo!

bobbuck Re:False equivalence much? (518 comments)

If your morals require more people to die for no reason while waiting for organs you might need to reconsider your morals. Just sayin'.

I don't know how good they are. They tried to sue me but the court couldn't access the complaint without agreeing to a 30 page EULA.

You're an idiot. If markets aren't forward looking, how the hell do 30 year bonds get sold?

By "subject to" you mean there may be products with her branding that you may freely choose to ignore unlike the whims of our president.

Obama Nominates RIAA Lawyer For Solicitor General

bobbuck Re:Palin (463 comments)

My point is this: does your opinion of Palin's intelligence have ANY basis other than her looks? Do you think she's stupid because she thought the US and France got together and kicked Hezbollah out of Lebanon? Because she thought the stimulus would keep unemployment under 8%? Because she said there are 57 states? Because she thought ObamaCare would make insurance less expensive? That heavy restrictions on firearms would lower crime? Those were all incorrect assertions of the administration, not Palin's. How many times does Palin have to be right when everyone else is wrong before we accept that she's actually pretty sharp?

Obama Nominates RIAA Lawyer For Solicitor General

bobbuck Re:Palin (463 comments)

No, you would not. I met a girl that was sharp as a tack and had and advanced degree. Her downfall was that she was a beautiful busty blonde. After a couple of years of abuse and sexism from people just like the ones ripping Sarah Palin she became a stripper. A good looking woman will not be taken seriously by our society.

There is no honest reason to believe that Sarah Palin is stupid. She made better predictions about policy effects than the president and all his advisors whether they were economic, legal, or diplomatic.
