Technically it is correct to call them leeches if the standard of productivity is creating something tangible

As they produce no physical goods, nor move any, they only work with financial ideas and digital resources

Stock purchases and sells are almost always several years ahead rather than several years behind. Brokers are not waiting around to see a drop before they sell and they aren't waiting around to see a surge happen before they buy. If you're waiting to see the raise or fall you're late and you're losing money.


And because a lot of people are selling, everyone else sells too. Or if a lot are buying, everyone else wants to buy too. This turns any sort of big transaction into a self-fulfilling prophecy as long as it's backed by someone rich enough
Funny how that works

solution: restructure the economy so it doesn't require wall street (surprise: this is actually quite easy), then glass the financial district

Commies go home

Nothing about a market economy requires a bloated cadaver of a "financial industry" dangling off of it and occasionally releasing a plume of foul-smelling corpse gas that tanks everything else despite the same amount of goods and services actually being produced.
(Now, personally, I support far-left, labor-favoring viewpoints, but saying that the statements "the financial industry is a parasitic leech on the economy" and "workers should own the means of production" are the same is disingenuous.)

"Bloated cadaver"
"Dangling"
"foul-smelling corpse gas"
"parasitic leech"

You understand this convinces literally only people who agree with your viewpoint and advances no other argument right?

yeah i'm not trying to be persuasive right now man
i'm just being pissed
Also, the new American paradigm of advancing viewpoints is riling up your lukewarm supporters, rather than convincing your opponents, due to low voter turnout. I'm sure I've mentioned this before but it bears repeating: 42 percent of eligible voters simply didn't vote in 2016. Statistically, about half of them agreed with you (or at least preferred you to the alternative) but didn't vote. (Note: actually more than half of them if you are a leftist, because voting left-leaning parties correlates with things that also correlate with being unlikely to vote, such as being young, poor, or black.) Which do you think is easier: convincing the lukewarm supporters of your position to vote, or turning people who actively oppose you enough to vote against you to your side?

Pending a redesign of the american electoral system, time spent trying to argue your viewpoint to people who disagree with you is wasted effort. Meanwhile, words like "foul-smelling corpse gas" do an excellent job appealing to the emotions of people who agree with me but don't vote.

I'm pretty sure the US has more problems with its political system than a low voter turnout

How about getting some actually reasonable people to vote for? As far as I can tell the entire thing is "I don't want X to get into office so I vote Y" rather than actually agreeing with the ideas presented

I thought Manning was the diplomatic cables thing several years before Snowden leaked something people actually gave a shit about, the same leak that lead to Assange being all "THE US IS OUT TO GET MEEEEH" and hiding in the ecquadorian embassy forever after jumping bail over some charges in sweden that the swedes wanted him for because he thought the US were going to extradite him which is somehow in his mind easier to do from sweden than the UK because ?????? and now he's carrying on like he's a political prisoner in hiding because the swedes have since decided they don't give a shit about him the the UK are still saying "no fuck you you don't get to jump bail and just carry on like nothing happened" so he's turned into the diplomatic version of the guy who slipped an officer and instead of serving his three minutes in the brig is spending the rest of the round holed up in an autism fort in maintenance screaming about shitcurity out to get him

Technically the charge from Sweden has been withdrawn because the one that filed it withdrew it or something

But now he's stuck in the UK which would still just hand him over to the US so I guess it doesn't matter anyway

I think Sessions has said he doesn't give a fuck about assange either

the hilarious part is watching assange's twitter account where he keeps putting emojis in because twitter haven't given him a verified checkmark, it's like the saddest thing

like "watching a puppy drop its favourite ball in a slow-moving river and be scared to jump in and get it and is forced to stand helplessly on the shore and bark plaintively as it's carried away on the current" sad

Explain, out of my curiosity and lack of knowledge of rokkit science. All the BBC have said is "THEY CAN SHOOT A ROCKET SPECIFICALLY AS FAR AS US!" then "Their rocket sort of fell into the sea" then "One went up ~4,000km and then another ~10,000km"

Well they can probably hit the British Isles, so the BBC is right about that. The latest tests had a very high and steep trajectory which means the rocket could go very far in a regular ballistic trajectory, it was estimated as far as Washington D.C. and Europe. So the Hawaiian Islands are definitely in range. They obviously can't test the rockets on a >10,000 km horizontal distance (because all the overflown countries would shit their pants) so they shoot them high up and use math magic to get the results.

I don't think they would hit Washington or Europe anyway, the west coast is the most likely target for a retaliation in case of US invasion. A win-win for Trump: Kim either doesn't retaliate and gets rolled over, or he retaliates and a huge chunk of Democrat voters (packed in the big coastal cities) are wiped away and California is once again a guaranteed source of Republican electoral votes.

It's very unlikely that the king will be black lol.

Even if their child was directly inheriting the throne theres a very high chance that the baby turns out completely white considering meghan markle is mixed.

the whole concept of identity politics and race issues is at this point a manufactured issue to keep the masses at each other's throats instead of the movers and the shakers - Elected officials like the President and the PM are pretty much figureheads to take the blame for whenever something goes awry with their wheeling and dealing

CosmicScientist wrote:Unsure; I don't peer into celebrity fascinated circles. I feel he needs to be removed from the royal line as did the one who did the same prior to WWII. Marrying a foreigner? Understandable, perhaps. Marrying an American?

Less memes and more reals, I don't want to see the royal family becoming more associated with those across the pond, for every reason I don't like closer cultural impregnation between Murica and Britain and perhaps every reason Muricans don't like the reverse (Whovians, anyone? Or Brexit being in your news? Was it ever in your news? Trump is always in ours, all of ours).

More memes, Charles is weird, homeopathy and snob weird, William is ugly, Harry looks okay but time will change that. The royal family may have issues once the queen pops her clogs, in the sense that we have already begun to get royal scandals in tabloid rags that are mundane but exactly the sort of thing clickbait news needs (a recent piece being WORRA SCOOP, SOMEONE LEAKED TO THE NEWS THE ROYAL BRA SIZE AND THE HIRED BRA MAKER WAS FIRED! WE COULD MAKE A HEADLINE OUT OF A HEADLINE!) and yet we haven't got a pro-mass modern media head of state yet. A Trump style King or Queen would likely lead to it being harder for later monarchs to be respected.

If we wound up with a black King or Queen, I am unsure how it would go down. Assassination before it's even possible? Maybe. Though it might make a cheap splash as a progressive headliner "FIRST BLACK MONARCH IN THE UK!" which will likely avoid the questions of progressive inadequacy: black yet monarch. I don't think anyone would care except it could rally a stronger sentiment in the nationalist extremists that the ruling groups are taking them for a wild ride. Though the result might either be another non-white labour MP being shot or a replacement for the British fascist party the BNP UKIP rising up and cannibalising the last, though falling to leadership struggles and tabloid rag level gossip within the hour. Maybe they'll win more than one seat given the apparent vote share of UKIP in the last election, though they won't have an ironic MEP job to fund their leadership nor a Europe to rally against, which was probably the last big bad that was socially acceptable to hate whilst being influential in people's lives.

So, to summarize:

Millions of people would die, but it's okay because they don't agree with you on politics.

Are Muricans building communal nuclear shelters at all?

The number of Americans legitimately worried about nuclear weapons from the norks is roughly the same as the number of remaining diehard Hillary supporters.

We still have communal nuclear shelters from the cold war, though most are mothballed and would take a period longer than "nuke is inbound go hide" blaring over phones to make ready

Also, every metro tunnel in the large cities has fire doors and could temporarily support being a shelter

Millions of people would die, but it's okay because they don't agree with you on politics.

Billions more would die in the days following that, of course, because with how mentally unstable Trump is there's no way this wouldn't devolve into all-out nuclear war. Enjoy your red California until you die to radiation poisoning.

I'm not saying I personally support this, I'm saying it's a plausible reasoning. Keep in mind that the next census is scheduled for 2020 and the subsequent congressional apportionment and redistricting won't be effected in time for the elections, meaning that California will still grant 55 votes regardless of actual population. Hell, I wouldn't be surprised if missile defense systems at Vanderberg "failed" to intercept warheads inbound to LA or San Francisco. After all, intercepting ICBMs is hard, you know? It's sad that those got through, but we will survive as a nation and the enemy will feel our wrath etc. etc.

Short answer: Letting the Norks join in kind of goes against all the sanctions that have been levied against them

The fact North Korea is trying to open diplomatic talks means the sanctions are working, it just needs time, they shouldnt be handwaved for the Olympics

Americans have got the Chinese on film still conducting trade with NK, courtesy of spy planes even after they pinky promised they wouldn't go to the Hermit state.

"Government shutdown" means that the party not in power throws a wrench in the machine and the party in power complains that they shouldn't have for the greater good. Republicans did it to Obama and now dems are doing it to Trump.

True not sure if the leeches were getting paid at the time though because they failed to fund the very government itself.


More commonly we trigger double dissolution elections and send both houses to early election if the senate keeps being cantankerous which while it might seem prone to abuse on the part of the lower house which contains the government they can lose the election if their reason for dragging everyone back to the polling booths (mandatory voting) isn't good enough.

Pretty sure it will just happen every single time someone tries literally anything even remotely controversial. Wall, healthcare, whatever.
And it's always the other side's fault

Well, it legitimately is always the other side's fault because both sides are sore losers.
