It took a Princeton study to say what Dan Smoot said in the 1960s.. TV was black and white back then..

Looks like the "world leader" in "democracy" (or leader of the "free" world, if you will) has sort of failed at Job One.

Asking "[w]ho really rules?" researchers Martin Gilens and Benjamin I. Page argue that over the past few decades America's political system has slowly transformed from a democracy into an oligarchy, where wealthy elites wield most power.

Using data drawn from over 1,800 different policy initiatives from 1981 to 2002, the two conclude that rich, well-connected individuals on the political scene now steer the direction of the country, regardless of or even against the will of the majority of voters.

"The central point that emerges from our research is that economic elites and organized groups representing business interests have substantial independent impacts on U.S. government policy," they write, "while mass-based interest groups and average citizens have little or no independent influence."

A new study from Princeton spells bad news for American democracy—namely, that it no longer exists.

Arnold Schwarzenegger on one knee screaming encouragement in your ear is probably the most encouraging thing that can happen to a person.
With Arnold Schwarzenegger—a seven-time Mr. Olympia, former Governor of California, onetime Kennedy-by-marriage, and regular Terminator—by his side, strongman Eddie Hall set a new deadlift world record when he cleared a 1018-pound barbell. If it wasn't clear before: Arnold Schwarzenegger on one ...

In America, the best-paid 1% of workers earned 191% more in real terms in 2011 than they did in 1980, whereas the wages of the middle fifth fell by 5%. Similar trends can be observed all over the world. What can explain the growing disparity in wages? http://econ.st/1Cskoyf
SINCE its publication last year, Thomas Piketty’s “Capital in the Twenty-First Century” has ignited a furious debate about inequality in the rich world. He...

Had I known that the theater and the seats were so filthily, I would have defiantly thought twice about coming to this location. Actually considered leaving midway through the movie because of the smell. Lets just say if you were going to catch Ebola in a theater, it would be this one.
