To which I get confusing stares, and then I go on to explain.
McNabb spent most of his career with the Philadelphia Eagles and is widely regarded as the greatest QB to ever play for that franchise
Which is a super compliment until truly understands how mediocre to awful the rest of the QBs were to ever wear an Eagles jersey since the team's inception.. 75+ years of absolute collective garbage representing that city's football team.
So yes, McNabb is the 'best' compared to crap but when compared to QBs who were actually great, the guy was nothing special
For instance there are nations that completely deny their citizens the right the vote, and others that have rigged elections where the act of voting is allowed but only one name on the ballot..
Wonder who wins that election?
And both parties do their utmost to control who the candidate will be to ultimately represent them in the Presidential election..
For Democrats, it is super-delegates which are current and former politicians, lobbyists and others with no legal responsibility nor allegiance to select who the people want..
With the Republicans, they set up archaic and intentionally confusing rules for their delegate count so that even a candidate who crosses the number threshold still can not breathe a sigh of momentary relief
""The media has created the perception that the voters choose the nomination. That's the conflict here," Curly Haugland, an unbound GOP delegate from North Dakota, told CNBC's "Squawk Box" on Wednesday (3/16). He even questioned why primaries and caucuses are held.
"The rules haven't kept up... The rules are still designed to have a political party choose its nominee at a convention. That's just the way it is. I can't help it. Don't hate me because I love the rules.""
But I digress..
Now if Trump can actually survive all the sickening sabotage and dirty tricks by small-minded power-hungry men and women in his own party, maybe I won't look so negatively on the vote and lack of significance it holds for Americans..
Until then, I still keep my cynicism
Presidents of both parties have shown they do not have the slightest clue what true democracy is and never seem willing to learn
They also love using the power of the Presidency to meddle in the affairs of other nations, sometimes even starting up coups to destabilize regions until people are put into power that we like and can do business with
Once such incident occurred 40 years ago today in fact.. March 24th, 1976 and it happened in the nation that the little brown monkey President decided to visit with his family on the taxpayers' dime..
Of course the little brown monkey will lay a commemorative wreath which is as meaningful as the moment of silence in Brussels by the leaders responsible for letting the Muslims live in Belgium in the first place...
Argentine Nobel Peace Prize winner Adolfo Pérez Esquivel wrote in an open letter prior to Obama's visit that he would not be welcome on Thursday's anniversary because the U.S. “has been and is behind all the destabilization attempts on popular governments of our continent.”
So very true..
Why is the prick in Argentina?
Obama’s visit is meant to promote the Trans-Pacific Partnership and like all trade agreements we enter into, it is led by large corporations and filled with secret clauses which threaten countries’ sovereignty,”
The 12-nation TTP is one of the largest economic treaties to lower trade barriers. Concluded in 2015, it has drawn political opposition in the United States as well.
You didn't think the mulatto was visiting these nations as a good-will ambassador did you?
We also treat the Middle East as our stomping ground and pretend Israel is our friend and ally when its really treated by one Administration after another as our yelping dog to sit and fetch as we please.
If it was truly treated as a sovereign, independent State, then Israel would never be under any obligation to tell the US ahead of time of its desire to bomb Iran's nuclear sites just to have careful plans fall to pieces when the US intentionally leaks the secret to the media
A true sovereign, independent nation or state simply Does
Less than 10 months to go and then all that Presidential decision-making power will be taken away from this little brown monkey forever
Maybe American Democracy isn't so bad after all..
