    Yes, much better use of our time to talk about cartoon shows or spaceships or whatever floats your boat.

    I suppose you should make a post in the USA Politics Thread about it.

    Hands up if you thought that there was some hidden vetting process that prevented exceptionally compromised individuals from taking control over several thousand megaton worth of nuclear weapons.

    No? Maybe I was the only one.

    I believe the vetting process is called the Presidential Election. Unfortunately, Democracy doesn't work so well when you have an uneducated/highly propagandized voting population.

    This. The US has slowly made its self pretty much ripe for the taking over the last 50 years or so. Used to be the case that if you accused someone of being a communist people would stop believing what they said, now it seems to improve their public image. Times change. Perhaps the US really wants a dictator these days. It will mean they can stop caring about all this political shit they don't care about once and for all.

    Edit: They could be the most democratic dictatorship in the world!

    I now believe that we are closer to the end of democracy than we are to its birth.

    This came up years ago, I guess with pre-alistair herschel saying something about Canadian taxes. I always assumed from the rhretoric that we had it super bad, but it turned out otherwise.

    It gets all complicated because of brackets. Murica taxes their poor quite a bit worse than Canada does, for example. There's some bullshit graphs that cherry pick data like only looking at maximum tax rate floating around.

    But basically we pay less income tax and make up for it in other ways like high sales tax. Cost of living is definitely on the high end in the city.

    This is what happens when your government was designed during an era where people still sailed across the ocean on wooden ships and wrote with feathers.

    Yup. And it's time to format the drives and do a clean install of a new OS.
