    I am allowed to vote but it does not count, Because the state I live in the Democrats outnumber everyone else, so if my vote is not democrat it does not count!

    It doesn’t matter anyway since American politicians are entirely depended hence owned by campaign donors. Whoever you vote for same people stay in charge. Instead of limiting influence of business on politicians your legislators give it more opportunity by removing donation restrictions.
    I wouldn’t care.

    Thanks for letting us know about some of the local prejudices going on there.
    You know what, every town, city, county, and state here do the same thing.

    For instance……up in Wisconsin they made a calendar…the “Beautiful Girls of Wisconsin”…some had to be used twice. ROFL.

    lol

    Lot of broad statements there guys, I for one try to avoid political stuff. Don’t paint all americans with such a broad brush.

    I didn’t mean Americans but USA government. Americans are like everybody else. Mostly naive and ignorant. And like I said America did some good stuff, but it is overshadowed by bad things.

    Yeah, we are naïve thinking that a bunch of sand dwellers want something better for themselves. We should just leave them alone…bUT, as Peanut knows, they’re not staying in their sand and rocks.

    Chopp, the problem is that you USA doesn’t try to help them just go there to do business.

    I agree, without becoming isolationists, I hope we stay out of affairs of other countries. There should be a balance and I hope we find it.

    USA can’t afford to be isolationists. You’re the only superpower atm and you need protect your interests all over the world. You just need to consider others opinion from time to time.

    Looks like there’s a soviet reunion going on, what happens if they come back for Poland?

    Poland wasn’t part of USSR. Anyway Russia is weak despite all that big talk. I doubt they go into full scale conflict with Ukraine. And last thing they need is clash with EU. However Ukraine may fall apart.

    EDIT: I’m really curious about USA response to Russian intrusion in Ukraine.

    It has put the American people in a huge debt.

    Dear Chopp you’ve put there entirely by yourself. Nobody asked to go to Afghanistan or Iraq, nobody wanted to go. You even lied you allies about weapon of mass destruction. I’m not sure why did you go Afghanistan but I think nobody has any doubts about Iraq – oil.
    Whetever the reasons you went because you wanted protect your interests. Which is entirely understandable, but lets don’t delude ourselfs about human rights and stuff like that. In fact you have no problems with dealing with worst dictators as long as they cooperate. Saudi Arabia is a good example (I wish I live long enough to see they run out of the oil). It’s medieval thyrany where slavery is practically legitimate and half of the society (women) has no rights at all. But it doesn’t stop you from making buisness with them.
    In 70s and 80s you supported worst dictatorships in Latin America as long they weren’t red.
    In 1979 you were surprised why your buddy Pahlavi were overthrown by Islamic revolution.
    Don’t expect people will like you after that.

    There is only few cases when USA intervened to protect local population. I.e. Yugoslav Wars. When conflict really started to go nasty and Europe didn’t know what to do. You came there, kick a shit out of the bad guys and went out. Job done.

    Frustrating part is the dumbazzes just go back to killing each other.

    It’s because in naivety you think democracy is like plant you just spread it out. You don’t have to be genius to know democracy will never work out in country like Afghanistan. But it came to you AFTER you went there.

    I am currently looking at a 120gb ssd on newegg, might just make the leap.

    I think every SSD will be just fine, look for one with the longest warranty coverage.

    No, I will not overclock this particular cpu, perhaps further down the road. (this is only my second pc build, and I feel the stock cooler might be inadequate)

    I was just curious, although modern CPU are fast enough without oc. But overclocking it’s old habit, I’ll do it even I don’t really need it.

    Anyway nice PC. Have you overclocked CPU??

    EDIT: And I really encourage you to install SSD (I know they’re still damn expensive), performance boost is HUGE.

    Hi PeanutsRevenge :

    Selling processed goods using our almost freely
    aquirred wealth of land and natural resources,
    along with the availibilty of free or nearly free
    labor were major keys to our rapid climb.

    Out sourcing ( Thanks Mitt ! ) has been a terrible
    blow to our economy and seems likely to continue.

    There is remedy for out sourcing – innovation. Create thing that cannot be produced elsewhere and make money from it before others get how-to.
    You’ve been most innovative economy in the world for many years. You still are (especially in IT sector) but world is catching up with you.

    That’s not what I’m seeing. I’m seeing China trying to stop the dollar being the international currency, which is big reason why the world in such a bad state.

    Chinese government will do everything it can to sustain high GDP growth. Otherwise the country will be torn apart pretty soon (or at least the government will be changed). They can’t do that without States buying their goods. That’s they can’t afford to USA Government go bankrupt.
