If giving large amounts of money to politicians isn't bribery, then I suppose giving large amounts of money to a police officer isn't, either.
Interesting how elected, bought Republicans think paying poor people money to survive makes them "dependent", but when corporations pay politicians like them money, they just do that out of the goodness of their hearts.
Ich hab gerade rausgefunden dass in Deutschland Firmenspenden an Parteien komplett legal, und sogar unbegrenzt! WAS???!
If in 2016, Russia had unilaterally decided they want to release for example the "I grab her by the pussy" tape, to give Hillary better chances of winning, honestly what would you have thought about that?
The US basically has the UK political system - as it was in 1776: The moderately powerful king is elected and called the President, the people elect the House of Commons/Representatives in districts.
When a Constitution says for instance "You can't pass an Amendment taking away the right to vote", couldn't you just repeal the Amendment and then take away the right to vote?
Parteitage sollten direkt von den Mitgliedern gewählt werden, und nicht durch mehrere Ebenen von Ortsvereinen, Unterbezirke und Bezirken gehen, die jeweils die höhere Ebene wählen.
This is a graph of the yearly increase of CO2 in the atmosphere: As you can see, it is getting worse, not better, we emit more CO2 every year today than we did ever before
This is just an idea I've had a few minutes ago while thinking about something different: What would happen if there was a mandatory "waiting period" before buying stocks, maybe 24h? Would that help to curb market instability and crashs? I mean technically speaking buying stock is supposed to be an investment, right? So why would you care so much whether you buy it now or tomorrow?
AfD ist im Durchschnitt knapp vor der SPD, Rot-Rot-Grün hat mit 44% (48,5% für Bundestagsmehrheit) genauso viel wie die Groko, und RRG ist mittlerweile meilenweit vor Schwarzgelb mit 38%. Und die Grünen scheint eine Chance zu haben die SPD zu überholen, bedeutet wir könnten echt einen grünen Minderheitskanzler sehen, Wagenknechts Aufstehenbewegung scheint anzudeuten dass sie sich langsam RRG annähert, vorrausgesetzt natürlich das Programm stimmt.
Anstatt darauf zu warten dass Firmen sich langsam an grüne Energien gewöhnen, wie wäre es mit einem staatlichen Energiekonzern der nur Grünstrom produziert?
What if I held an auction, where the highest bidder gets a 100$ bill from me. Except there's a catch: The second-highest bidder also has to pay me
To everyone who is for a tax-funded army and police, but against single-payer healthcare: So you want everyone to be protected from criminals and other countries, got it. What about wild animals attacking citizens? What about Ebola?
Wenn die Groko aus irgendeinem dieser Skandale vor der nächsten Wahl zusammenbricht, würde das entweder eine Minderheitsregierung oder Neuwahlen bedeuten. Bei Neuwahlen bekommt die AfD definitiv keine Mehrheit, also gäbe es auch da höchstwahrscheinlich eine Minderheitsregierung, weil die ja wohl kaum dann doch plötzlich wieder die Groko machen, nach den Wahlen die es nur gab weil die Groko aufgelöst wurde
If 99% of astronomers agreed there was a giant asteroid headed to earth in 30 years, would you also be like "We don't need this silly space craft to fly up there and save us from the asteroid, it's just a way for [insert group you don't like] to make money. China made it up to hurt our economy"?
Hold on, why is dividend income taxed LESS than labor income in the US?
Organist means somebody who plays the musical instrument "organ". It doesn't mean somebody who organizes, or somebody who has something to do with organs in the body
Because I agree, it needs big reforms. I'm going to tell you my ideas in a bit, bit first here is how the EU currently works, in a nutshell.
How about a "Negative Tax", where for every net dollar you lack to 2000$/month, the government gives you 50ct. That means nobody ever falls below 1000$/month, but we also don't waste money on the upper middle class, giving everyone 1000$ (that'd be UBI)
Man kann doch auch wenn man schon in einer anderen Partei ist zu lokalen Parteitreffen von zum Beispiel der CDU oder FDP gehen, oder?
Quick, somebody make this into an attack ad against Beto O'Rourke, this one will surely bring him down:
New meme, just originated from a discussion I had
Do you think it would be "undemocratic" if the UK ever joined the EU again, if the majority of the people want that? I assume not, but then why would it supposedly be "undemocratic" if the public got to vote on whether or not they accept the final deal or not?
So I was on Reddit/historymemes again
What are the three most pressing issues that can be solved through politics in your country, in your opinion?
The two co-founders of Bitmain, Micree Zhan and WU Jihan, clarified to Sina Tech on November 13 that it's Beijing Bitmain Technologies Limited, not BitMain Technologies Holding Company, that has recently made some changes to the board of directors.
