    No, we've become used to the fact that democracy is a joke and that our self appointed elites do whatever it takes to stay in power. They can't even be bothered to hide it any more.

      Heh, heh...

      Here in Canada Trudeau became Canada's king on the promise of legalized dope. I'm actually looking forward to the next federal election. To remain king he' s going to have to do better. I'm thinking free pizzas once a week for everyone with a blowjob included...

In fact, all efforts to restrain me are only further proof of my oppressed condition.'

          Personally, I think I'd settle for just the pizza...

            Well, we've known this was happening, of course. This part interested me, however:


            In an email exchange that month, another committee official wrote to both Mr. Paustenbach and Amy Dacey, the committee’s chief executive, to suggest finding a way to bring attention to the religious beliefs of an unnamed person, apparently Mr. Sanders.

            “It might may no difference, but for KY and WVA can we get someone to ask his belief. Does he believe in a God,” wrote Brad Marshall, the chief financial officer of the committee. “He had skated on saying he has a Jewish heritage. I think I read he is an atheist. This could make several points difference with my peeps.”

            Mr. Marshall added in a second email: “It’s these Jesus thing.” Ms. Dacey wrote back, in capital letters: “AMEN.”
            This is "liberal?" I don't think so.

            Both parties have become corporate-conservative; this may explain why only half of registered voters belong to either party.
