    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.

    Taxes are pretty low in many states actually. Most of those happen to be shitty though
    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.

    I can't wrap my head around how incredibly obviously made up this is. Its literally about Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin attending a Christmas Party in 2010, wherein they watch anime together, hire a bunch of prostitutes, and piss all over them because Obama slept in the bed and Trump hates Obama... and Putin decides to bribe Donald Trump by threatening to leak this story unless he runs for President and wins? How on earth did anyone in the CIA take this story as truth!?

    The CIA continues to work on building trust with the Trump administration.

    How do these people expect to still keep their jobs after he gets inaugurated?

    So it has as much evidence and has been debunked as much as say the idea that immunisations cause autism?

    Beyond the absurdity of the claims themselves, the whole thing does not fit the style of an actual intelligence briefing. It's written in narrative prose, refers to the CIA as "the company" (which nobody in intelligence services ever does in reality), and is generally about as well constructed as the story that got Dan Rather fired from CBS.
