Similarly I have no particular desires to see what a charming muffin-top that your pajama pants give you. The answer as always is a disgusting one.
And lastly just because Death Race 2000 is a few years over due doesn't mean that you stop walking in the middle of the driving area of the parking lot to slowly dial your phone, it tempts some of us to begin beta testing the points scoring system.

Ancient Athens shows just how the people can become the mob, and how even the most enlightened cultures of their times can succumb to a suicidal collective hysteria. All due to a desire for the easy "fix" to problems. People vote for whatever short term satisfaction their collective Id wants: revenge, safety, or luxury. Eventually the processes of democracy are too slow to satisfy them, so they find a strongman who promises quick and easy solutions if only he is given the power to do them....history has yet to record this ending well.
Words to the wise.

According to Breitbart News, Byron York reported that "in a nearly one-hour speech, Trump railed against pharmaceutical companies. He railed against oil companies. And insurance companies. And defense contractors. And he set himself against a political system that he said allows big-money corporate 'bloodsuckers' to control the government with campaign contributions."
In case this confuses you: According to Trump, the problem is business, not government. No, government is as pure as the wind-driven snow. The problem with health care is big pharma and not the precious, amazing government bureaucrats.
And by the way, what kind of mathematical mind thinks big oil is gouging anyone right now? In 2011, Trump was obsessed with OPEC. Of course, it was American "big oil" and not Trump's negotiating Jedi mind tricks that made the cartel irrelevant.
Additionally, it seems the Donald thinks that big pharma and big hospital and big insurance went to Obama and begged him to totally ruin our health care system. Either that or he's just flat pandering and lying because he thinks the odd ball liberals in New Hampshire will lap it up. Obviously they did.
Oh, and for the record, underlying Trump's premise is that only rich people should run for office. Now there's a conservative principle if there ever was one.
Now I know that some of my readers disagree with me as far as Trump goes, all I can respectfully say is that I sincerely hope you're right about him and that I'm dead wrong.
