Our Electoral System

Not only am I pissed off that I'm not allowed to vote in my state's primary, I think this whole "super delegate" thing is very undemocratic.

Why should governors and other elected officials get these "super" votes?

Screw the delegates...

I remember after the nightmare of the 2000 election that I hoped something would change as far as our election system went.

All primaries should be open and there should be no electoral college. One vote per person period.

Isn't that the way it should be?

NOTE: CNN has ruined my night of "pure politics" because they have me thinking impure thoughts about Campbell Brown.

swift_trader must not be retarded, he's only being charged the $10k.

DT, does my account have a gold star next to it because I paid $20k?

DT,

zlati.shalaverov@abv.bg

could u explain me in more details about the VO and the corresponding fee :)

thanks

Dinosaur Trader said...

Retardo,

I told you when you wired the money...

That extra $10,000 means I'll always alphabetize you with "R" instead of "T" as in, Trader Retard. It puts you ahead of Sanglucci on the list instead of behind him.

Money well spent.

Swifty,

That email looks more like some kind of virus...

Anyway, the main requirements of VO inclusion are that:

1. You trade everyday, as a living
2. You update your blog daily with an explanation of trades made
3. You link my blog and heap praises upon me, my blog, and my investing prowess.

As it stands, your blog will need to mature for a week or two, just so I see that it's interesting. Otherwise, any idiot could start a blog and get thrown in the VO mooching like 6 or 7 clicks a day from my esteemed readership.

And I don't like to waste my readerships time. Those people trust me...

C'est tout.

I will totally pay $10k to get behind Sanglucci, rrrrrrr.

Dinosaur Trader said...

jerome,

I'd watch out about Sanglucci... he's the loose canon in the VO.

Nice site swifty - I like the clean look (having text on a blog only clutters it and distracts from the visual elegance of the design.

I have a sneaking suspicion he might be a viagra salesman.
