Hint: You are pretty much always going to be enriching a douchebag somehow. If you spend your life trying to only give money to people whose politics align with your own, it's going to be the only thing you have time for. (And you'll fail anyway.)

Do you pay your taxes? Enriching douchebags.
DO you look at ads? (Of course you do, it's impossible not to.) Enriching douchebags.
Do you buy anything online? Enriching douchebags.
Do you buy gas for your vehicle? Enriching some of the biggest douchebags on the planet.

Don't have much choice about paying tax it's that or prison. And that's not really enriching someone. Unless you're a cave dweller taxes are a necessary evil. It would be a lot more fair if we got to pick and choose what our taxes support.

I'd wager my ad watching is minimal. Don't own a TV or cable service. I use adblock and ghostery for browsing. I'm very anti-logo. I go out of my way to buy clothing that doesn't advertise. I'll promote other peoples products if they pay me for it, but certainly not the other way around where it can be helped. For example, a beer rep once gave me a really nice $500 Italian leather car coat. Sure it has a small logo of their product on it, but that's fair trade.

Buying online is the same thing. It's about who you buy from. I buy from artisans/small business people where possible. Besides, online shopping in Canada is more of an afterthought compared to the US.

And again, I can't help buy buy gas. I travel too much for work for it to be practical to cycle and they don't allow people to ride horses on the highways now do they? So yeah, I have to do it, but I don't have to like it.

So as I stated, I at least make the effort to make my consumer dollars count for something better where possible, and everyone else should too. That's how it starts being a better world. When people just bend over and take it because they don't think it makes a difference that's when it becomes a shittier world. Our last municipal election here in my region saw a 29% voter turnout. That's fucking beyond pathetic. And then all these assholes do is sit around and piss and moan about how bad things are, as if it's supposed to somehow automagically get better by itself.

$120 million? What is that, like 3 tanks?

Wow, only $8.28 M per according to Wiki -- so 14 tanks.

It's wholly indicative of the overall problem. Like when they waste 5 billion on crap like the Crusader artillery program. Or 140 million for a fighter jet that'll never be used. The list goes on and on. You're talking about $650 billion per year for shit you don't need. And that's just the operational stuff, not even the black budgets which are known but also flow into the the 10s of billions. And the 100s of billions for Intel and federal police agencies. Last count you had about 26'ish of them all overlapping each other. Basically you're wasting a trillion dollars a year on shit you don't need. Now, try going without water for a few days and see how that works out for you.

You have the same opinion as me about celebrities.. I don't give a shit if they're fucking 1000 lbs women on the side and eating donkey brains for dinenr. The only thing I care about is "Do they make good movies/shows/music/whatever".

You should care because you're otherwise enriching a douchebag. Where possible I try to spend my consumer dollars in-line with my politics. I used to buy Dominoes pizza until I found out their right-wing fascists. No longer am I a customer. I don't buy games from Stardock because Wardell is a right-wing idealogue. And if you're giving money to Adamn Baldwin to use then in effect you're making a political statement as well.

One can't always succeed at this sort of thing but they should at least make the attempt.

He said California is the breadbasket of the world. He must be getting senile as that belongs to Saskatchewan alone which supplies 10% of the world's wheat. The US combined only supplies about 10% of the world's wheat.

And desalinization is perfectly viable. You'd need to spend about 600B +/- to provide water for the entire state. That's less than the US military budget for 1 year. Slash your wasteful corporate welfare to the MIIC and you'll have plenty of money for things people actually need.

Perfect example: Congress Again Buys Abrams Tanks the Army Doesn't Want

Even the Army recognizes the need to scale back, but the GOP keep stealing from the taxpayers regardless.

QFT....

This is absolute evidence of a lawless government, or in this case a lawless segment of the government. The police's job and the entire purpose is to enforce the law and prevent crime.

Here are situations where they are willingly choosing not to prosecute crime, in order to protect their own power to spy, without restraint. Apparently what they do with stingrays so clearly out of line and illegal, it's like they are secretly entering in burglarizing homes in search of evidence. Maybe If the full truth got out what they do with the stingrays, they wouldnt be allowed to keep them so better let known criminals go free and hang onto their power to use over their "subjects".

Power corrupts, and absolute power corrupts absolutely?

I run everything maxed and whilst nice that's all it is. It really just uprezzed concole graphics and it shows. If you want to see really nice, just go to teh Youtubes and watch some Unreal 4 engine demos. Now if 5 was using that, it'd be worth crowing about. Oh but wait, consoles can't handle that sort of work.

Why?
He's ted assnugget level, batshit cray, cray.

anyone who uses "cray cray" in their vocabulary has no place to comment about another human being.

Anyone who can't construct a proper sentence shouldn't be criticizing other people for their use of slang.

Sounds like George is doing it more for spite than out of any altruistic notion. If the elites/big biz were paying their share of taxes to begin with there'd be no shortage of money for affordable housing/etc. to begin with.

Unlike that Avengers scheisse that Supes v. Bats looks good. I'm actually looking forward to Affleck doing Bats.

And lulz to that gorilla video! Same thing happened to me as a kid at the zoo once. Big silverback charged the glass and everyone must have jumped a foot straight up. I still remember the nervous laughter afterward and everyone hurriedly moving on.

Why didn't the bitch poke him with the other end of the pen instead of ruining a perfectly good shirt? And why is it people feel entitled to be complete assholes (especially women lately)?

I agree on that point. There was no need for that but it's just ink, it'll wash out. Kicking her off the plane is extreme regardless. So what are people supposed to do? Not complain at all? Pester the plane waitress every 2 minutes? They'd probably kick you off for that. I don't think that wanting to stop someone from snoring is what I'd consider feeling self-entitled.

Yeah it's a good flick. I love how it shows the engineers scrambling to find solutions to their problems.

Lamar's a clown, he makes me laugh. And yeah, Michael's kid is beyond annoying. You should be able to beat him to death on general principle. His whole family actually. He should have had the option to kick them out of the house permanently and never see or hear from them again.

And no, that video isn't remotely funny.

Why didn't they kick the snoring guy off? Why should she have to sit their listen to a guy saw wood for several hours? Fucking airlines totally out of control.
