A survey revealed that Americans were asking: why settle for a mere 1/2 pound of meat when you can f...

The alternative is not to have these unaccountable organisations that threaten/kill/sabotage elected officials at home or abroad. It is pretty obvious who derailed the thread. The premise of Deep State is that there are career bureaucrats in the government who will do their jobs how they see fit re...

It is necessary to have career government officials? Why because no one gets good at anything without experience and restricting peoples experience to 4 years and turning over every government job with every administration is ridiculously impractical.

I think what is is, is this. Young people start to think for themselves, think they have all the answers. They get told by old people what to do, and resent it.
