How do we do this? Once elected, many office holders become 'career politicians' and are able to build a system of support around them. Then the concern is more about re-election, fundraising, and quid pro quo with special/corporate/foreign interests.

Term limits has been suggested many times but you will never get Congress to agree to it. The voters could limit their terms but they don't seem to have the will to do so. Especially those who look to that candidate as a source of resource transfers for their benefit.

As far as abuse of power, hiding wrong doing, obstruction, and lack of action- look no further than the media. Our journalists are not objective and the media is dominated by the left. They either fear for their careers or willfully act as operatives for the preferred party. They fail to fulfill their traditional role. This is why alternative news sources are on the rise.

Nepotism is rife on both sides- siblings, spouses, children are given six figure salaries and that should not be. What about the close ties between the members of last administration and the media? There were quite a few siblings and spouses. Conflict of interest? I think so.

I need more information for this one. Let's use for an example, Trump's promise to build a wall. How far down the chain of command does this penalty go? Governors, mayors, dog catchers? Anyone who is a member of the same party?

Look at the activist judges blocking our president's Executive Orders- cha- ching!

If a candidate makes a legitimate campaign promise and has the support of their party, but is unable to fulfill this because the opposition party blocks it, refuses to fund it, or the promise turns out to take longer than projected- the president and X number of party members are forced to forfeit ten percent of their wealth?

After you confiscate this money- where does it go? Does the opposition get to dip into this slush fund? Do you cut a check for each voter? Wouldn't this be an incentive for more obstruction and encourage people to work against the candidate for profit?

Wouldn't this guarantee that only the extremely wealthy, well connected, and corrupt are able to run for office? Who else would be willing to take this risk?

Interesting post, Pud- but this does not sound like a Representative Republic or in keeping with our constitution.

I'm on my phone atm, so can't answer. But I will try to later.  :)

Willesden shooting: Police foil 'active terror plot'

Probably should be less islamophobic, Brits.  Then these peaceful muslims wouldn't get their feelings hurt and resort to terrorism.

Naturally it won't occur to you (because, well, it just wouldn't) that the intelligence that stopped any attack might have been garnered from other undercover Muslims?

Awww. No-one knew how complicated being POTUS could be...

Trump on being president: 'I thought it would be easier'

In his interview with Reuters, he's as articulate as ever.

I won't need to tell you. Even Alex Jones will know.

Well, changing the time to 11PM Eastern, is probably going to put me out of the live viewing audience, so I will probably only be listening to the shows that get good reviews on this thread the next day.

We all know you have a penis obsession but you should get schooled on trucks. A 1500 is a 1/2 ton cuck wagon, what you want between your butt cheeks is a big black Ford F650 6 Door.

Well you do naturally, because you wouldn't know which way up to hold a woman.

When did they say science does not matter? Site source

You think Trump's assertion that climate change is a Chinese plot to undermine the American economy has validation then?

Then there's the defunding of research..

What was the purpose of these protest's?

As far as I'm aware not so much a protest per se, but just a get together to publicise that despite what Trump and his ignorant cabinet say, science actually matters.

I don't doubt that estimate.  There  would be small enclaves or pockets where the survival rate would be much higher--probably rural areas where clean water could be found, fish and game were availabe, gardens could be grown, wood for fuel, etc. People in large urban areas would be well and truly screwed.  Some preppers would be okay if they coulld protect their provisions from human scavengers.  It sure would change our priorities in life.

Sure would. There'd be no cable, Burger king, queues for the latest iphone three days before its release or faceberk.

Russia Hysteria Is Making US and some Brits International Laughing Stock"- Chomsky

That will explain why the FBI, both houses, and now the Pentagon are investigating Flynn and others. The laughing stock aspect comes in because Trump sends Spicer out to try and spin a silk purse from a sow's ear when he's presented with awkward questions.

What I find hilarious, we rejected the English form of governance then kicked there asses out. Yet Here we are roughly 241 years later pud is bitching we did not listen then, not going to now.

NHS is a worse than the VA yet you are going to lecture people on healthcare, fix your system first buddy. 


Is it? Think you'll find you're very wrong. The NHS is far from perfect, and gets abused and used as a political football. But the US (In the last twenty years) hasn't got close to the NHS in providing health care for all at a cost per patient that remotely compares. Out of eleven. The USA is eleven. The UK is about four.

My original question was-

Your reply was:

You made noise, Mr. Pud-you did not answer. Don't confuse effort with accomplishment.
If you need help- RoseGirl isn't the best spokesperson for your side. See if you can catch SV before he puts his thesaurus away and slips into his jammies for the night.

The question still stands in its original form.

We know what you don't like- why don't you tell us what you do like?

You're asking which system of governance? Hypothosis I suppose? One that treats everyone with equal respect, and doesn't elevate politicians (especially the incumbant leader) on the level of gods. They should all be answerable and not use position to either tread on the people or to escape answering their own failures and misdomeanors. Neither should said leaders hide, obfuscate or use nepotism. And for every pledge they make on a campaign they should forfeit 10% of their total wealth if they backtrack or fail to deliver, per pledge, per each member of that party's governance. E.G. 100 members plus leader. Each pledge lie in office is 10% each of their total wealth. Going into the coffers to provide for all except those 110.

Personal firearms aren't for keeping crime down, it's to protect oneself from crime. 

Ahhh, so firearms bought for defence are and have never been used to commit crime? Ever? Add in that you're more than four times more likely to be killed by a firearm if you possess one.

How retarded are you actually? 


You have literally zero skills at reading comprehension, or you refuse to acknowledge that firearms have actually prevented women, the elderly and others from being killed, raped, or assaulted.

And many many more firearms have been used to assist rape, murder, and assault. Or does a gun know how it is being used? Show your workings..

Would you be willing to go to each of those women, or elderly who used firearms to protect themselves from being raped or murdered and tell them you wish you could go back in time and remove the firearms from them, so they would have been raped or murdered?


And would you go to the families of kids murdered by those who have been watching too much hollywood and conspiracy websites, took their parents firearms and gone out to shoot the teachers and students they didn't like at the school they were expelled from because the staff aren't qualified to teach mentally ill? Or the family of the toddler who picked up a loaded handgun and shot their sibling or parent?

Are you that anti-women, and anti-elderly?

Oh spare me, misogynist in chief. Save your misplaced sancitimonious shite for someone who hasn't read your past on here.

Atwood's tale of totalitarian theocracy needs to be revised and updated.

The religious right has declined over the years- the old guard is dying out and there are few young ones waiting in the wings to take over. These are not the days of Ralph Reed.

Not a closed conversation, but it would be nice if Pud did answer.

Once again, I do not own firearms, nor am I member of any pro-gun clubs, or organization.

I am personally for people to be able to protect themselves, the elderly, women, and other's who are victimized the most from human predator's.

And how is the free for all with access to firearms keeping crime down? Roughly?

Seriously, Pud- most of us get that you do not approve of Trump to the point of appearing to be obsessed. You criticize, ridicule, and argue relentlessly. Don't get me wrong, it is your right to post your views as we all do, but I would sincerely like to ask you which system of governance would best serve our country?

One with Forrest Gump as POTUS? Just consider it. Thats all.

What are you struggling with? Aluminium or bauxite? To put it into an analogy you'd follow; You really wish you were a doctor and could find women to go to bed with you voluntarilly. No matter how much you want that to happen, it won't. You need bauxite to make aluminium. See?

Obama did.  There are millions today that had insurance before Obamacare that lost it because they either lost their employee plan, were knocked down to part time to evade Obamacare, or just can't afford it anymore. Millions have. Insurance that didn't have it before, but millions don't have it, that used to have it.

Even the Dems accept ACA needs revising and improving. The GOP (Some of them) don't believe healthcare in a civilised country should be a right, and that death because of being poor is an acceptable occupational hazard. Presumably because in the unlikely event they too would be destitute they'd think it okay to die from treatable conditions simply for being poor?
