    Ted Cruz's chances of becoming president

    I think he's probably gunning for a VP pick and/or just PR in general.

    Fox News the most trusted news source

    I'm pretty sure Kim's glorious behind is getting more attention. I mean, look: https://twitter.com/kimsass It even has its own Twitter account.

    Politics & War

    I created some account but never bothered to get into it. I honestly don't think it will reach any kind of critical mass nationstates or cybernations did, especially with all of the competition out there divvying up the hardcore (EVE) and casual crowd (CoC).

    The American Revolution

    The colonists had nothing to do with Prussia, to be asked to foot the bill for Prussia's ambitions to keep Silesia is unreasonable. Britain overplayed its hand and lost a valuable colony as a result. It's as simple as that.

    The American Revolution

    The ironic thing about all these taxes is that they are born out Britain's to financial desperation after the 7 Year's War. I call it ironic because it was due to the same reason France got into dire straits after the American Revolution-- subsiding an ally's war efforts. France greatly subsidized the Colonies, leading to its French Revolution. Britain greatly subsidized Prussia's war efforts, leading to its American Revolution. This was a poorly timed tax issued in 1764 (The war only ended in 1763). It was imposed right during an economic depression in the colonies. On top of that, it indirectly taxed rum which already had a slim profit margin. So it was a double whammy that caused much economic pain. Issued in 1765, this was in the same boat as the Sugar Act. This act's goals were more political rather than financial. Reaffirms legality of writs of assistance or rather unjustified search warrants which gave custom officials broad powers to search without probable cause for smuggle goods. Ties the salaries of colonial governors and judges to Parliament rather than the colonial assemblies Townshend said himself that this was merely an act to set a precedent to pave the way for future taxes (given that both the sugar and stamp tax were repealed after staunch opposition) And Britain really upped the anty after resistance to this act by occupying Boston. Same boat as the Townshend act, as it seeks to validate the taxing precedence the Townshend act tried to do. Again, these acts stoked political fires. All these taxes were because Britain decided to go deep into debt to fund Prussia's war machine in Europe, which has little to do with colonial security. Taxation without representation isn't simply a political ideal, it represented the fact that the colonists weren't able to voice their side of the story (i.e. Don't tax us while our economy is in the dumps, Economics 101). And it spiraled downhill fast.

    The American Revolution

    From what I understand, the British Crown lost a very valuable piece of territory because it caved to the lobbying of the East India Company-- who primarily sold tea. Also the UK, like all countries, tend to downplay negative and unfortunate events from history. America doesn't much like to talk about the massacres of the Native Americans, Britain tends to gloss over her past failings.

    Cars

    I can't recommend Toyota's enough. There's a reason why the most popular car company with people with a net value greater than 1 million is Toyota. The engineering is designed for longevity and they can take a substantial amount of abuse from your average Joe. I'm driving a 2002 Honda Accord, many things have just stopped working over time. I can't adjust my side mirrors and I can't even open my right rear window. The right windshield spray nozzle also stopped working and the left one doesn't work properly. The little annoyances are aggravating. Not with my old '99 Toyota Corolla though, the sugar just works. My old irresponsible roommate drove a '97 Corolla which he abused the sugar out of. He didn't change the oil for so long that it turned into sludge and took hours to pump out. It still operated! Not to mention Toyota's hold their re-sale value like no other. I regularly see dinky old '95 Corolla's, etc go for 5k. Insane! And I imagine European models are way better than American ones.
  12. Easy, 1) Use alien brilliance to start wildly successful businesses 2) Use the profits to lobby and buy political influence 3) Help install climate change denying leaders 4) Let the global warming sort things out Or they could just idly wait 200 years and claim credit for it.

    The End for the US Constitution?

    Hopefully an amendment limiting big money politics, but knowing the government as it is it would be an amendment promoting big money politics.
