  1. Re: USA's supreme court lifts campaign funding limits

    Would you not wanna get rid of all that?




    Sure, it's a dream. Doesn't make it impossible. It's very possible. It's only improbable to happen soon, but, the same was probably said by certain...

    Re: Ukraine and Crimea development thread

    Once this is all done and over, it's gonna create a Ukraine, albeit smaller, that is anti-Russian, pro-EU and possibly a key NATO ally. Russia is just making an lifelong enemy for the sake of a few...
  3. Re: USA's supreme court lifts campaign funding limits

    It's not. This is in no way a reasonable argument. Salaries for politicians doesn't make them favor anyone.

    Just take money out of politics. All together. You really don't money and it...
  4. Re: USA's supreme court lifts campaign funding limits

    It's an extreme use of public or private funds in a way that is divorced from governments function. It could further be seen as public assistance. That's why I pointed out that it can be bribery...
  5. Re: USA's supreme court lifts campaign funding limits

    I never said that that is the case GED laid out. I'm merely giving a more extreme example.
  6. Re: USA's supreme court lifts campaign funding limits

    What statement of mine shows that I don't get that? A bribe doesn't guarantee that an official will act in the desired manner as well. There is never 100% certainty.
  7. Re: USA's supreme court lifts campaign funding limits

    Giving defense contracts in return of campaign funds shouldn't be.




    It could certainly be bribery in certain conditions. If any presidential candidate goes to Ohio and declares that he will...
  8. Re: USA's supreme court lifts campaign funding limits

    Which is as relevant as me pointing out that US dollar is green.
  9. Re: USA's supreme court lifts campaign funding limits

    I don't see any relevance in your explanation of the law of diminishing returns. It's simply an irrelevant to what we're discussing here, especially given the fact that you've raised that point...
  10. Re: USA's supreme court lifts campaign funding limits

    And this is relevant to what we're discussing because?




    Contractor's money helps the politician get elected, giving the politician a whole level of new power. The politician helps the...
  11. Re: USA's supreme court lifts campaign funding limits

    You're gonna have to word out its relevance.




    The example stands. If you're qualifying my example as a corruption than you have to qualify others as such too. Money corrupts politics the same...
  12. Re: USA's supreme court lifts campaign funding limits

    Well, congrats on making yet an other irrelevant attack. This is what happens when someone jumps in to make an opposing point just for the sake of arguing. My analogy stands.
  13. Re: USA's supreme court lifts campaign funding limits

    Bribing is often an ethical issue. It would be a technical one if the engineer actually change the numbers. Similar to how a doctor could recommend certain drugs or procedures because s/he received...
  14. Re: USA's supreme court lifts campaign funding limits

    Care to point which statement of mine warrants such a question?
  15. Re: USA's supreme court lifts campaign funding limits

    It's not paranoia. It's merely stating a fact. In this case, especially, it made your inquiry sound pointless. Reporters in no way have the same authority as an ethics community. They can't suspend a...
  16. Re: USA's supreme court lifts campaign funding limits

    You really need to stop making such unwarranted attacks. This is the second time in this thread. It only hurts your own position. The very point of me using that number is to show that there are...
  17. Re: USA's supreme court lifts campaign funding limits

    Nope. Everyone can create such a sign. Even the homeless people can create signs.




    I do but it's hardly relevant here.
  18. Re: USA's supreme court lifts campaign funding limits

    Any amount will do. The amount merely changes the power you buy. The point of an election is that each person has the same amount of say in it. Money changes that.

    Just curious though, are you...

    Re: 4gb vs 2gb Graphics Cards

    The model number is Asus N56JR-EH71. I bought it from Amazon. i7-4700HQ, 12GB RAM, 1TB 5400RPM HDD. They still have 2 in stock.
  22. Re: Abandoned RTW2 features to allow an early release?

    Catering to the demands of the players doesn't mean they will cater to every demand. It's likely that they added it in because it didn't require much programming. Of course, they thought about having...

    Ended up with getting a relatively light laptop with Nvidia GTX 760M 2GB. Boy, my settings for Rome II jumped from medium with some lag to ultra with almost no lags.

    Christopher Titus is one of my favourites. Neverlution, the one I could find in full on YouTube, though I prefer Love is Evol (Needless to say foul language, be warned!):

  29. Re: USA's supreme court lifts campaign funding limits

    I was recently told by an ex-Army officer that candidates could use the remaining amount of those funds in any way they want once their term is up and not running again. A nice way to retire...
  30. Re: Abandoned RTW2 features to allow an early release?

    Well, wonders are not features. The only feature I can think of that was added after release was the "fight in formation" one and the "loose formation" one. Let's add the wonders models to those as...

    Poll: Re: Why are generals so unimportant in rome 2?

    It's 1 turn per 1 year system that makes generals largely irrelevant though they might be leveling up faster than it was in previous titles. What you get in exchange is the army traits which is a...

    If features were removed to rush the game release why would those features be put back after the release?

    Poll: Re: TWC's Rome 2 Total War Rating Score

    It's a reboot, not a sequel.

    It's wrong to compare ratings of two games 10 years apart. Rome I has the first comer advantage. If both games were launched 6 months ago ratings would be...
  34. Re: Ex Special Forces operator kills three outside Jewish community centre in Kansas.

    He's from a sect of Islam that Westerners don't make much of a fuss about. They're called Christians.
  35. Re: Some unrelated recent military procurment storiess since I am getting bored of the Ukrane

    Aren't those sensors on those tanks way too much in the open?

    They might be building it for a new C&C game though.
  36. Re: IS the rise of fundemetalism in the west risking becoming another Al-Ghazali moment?

    Still, that doesn't change the fact that it's more fundamental than those sects. I'm merely pulling you back to the proper definition of fundamentalism. On the other hand, when you and many others...
  37. Re: USA's supreme court lifts campaign funding limits

    And, commercials support or oppose candidates. I don't get the point of your senseless attack. Maybe I'm missing something. I don't know. Campaign commercials are rarely used to inform people of a...
  38. Re: USA's supreme court lifts campaign funding limits

    Candidates have nothing to do with political campaigns? Good luck with that. I'm not sure what I'm spouting off about. If that's what you get from my post then it's not me but you who needs to read...
  39. Re: USA's supreme court lifts campaign funding limits

    Money pays for attack ads. You don't need a lot of money to have a Twitter account or to run a website. Town hall meetings shouldn't cost anything. If a candidate has to pay to get interviewed by TV...

    Yet, I've already did reject them. I don't have to rely on them. In fact, I see Hadith as a betrayal of what Quran teaches.
