The Nevada thing is one of those siding with the less-despicable.

Surprise indeed...
 
Surprise surprise. The US government does not represent the interests of the majority of the country's citizens, but is instead ruled by those of the rich and powerful, a new study from Princeton and Northwestern Universities has concluded.

After sifting through nearly 1,800 US policies enacted in that period and comparing them to the expressed preferences of average Americans (50th percentile of income), affluent Americans (90th percentile) and large special interests groups, researchers concluded that the United States is dominated by its economic elite.

So far, is anyone surprised?  Yawn.  Only then one asks the next question… why is half of the voting public just fine with this?  Why do they let oligarch-controlled think tanks and oligarch-run mass media tell them to rage against every OTHER elite  -- science, teaching, journalism, medicine… etc. -- that might stand up to oligarchy on our behalf, but never, ever question oligarchy itself?

In fact, there are reasons.  Similar to how plantation lords talked a million poor while southerners who had been victimized by that landed elite, to instead turn and fight and die for them.
Report by researchers from Princeton and Northwestern universities suggests that US political system serves special interest organisations, instead of voters

Israel jails Druze conscientious objector for the sixth time

Omar Saad, an eighteen-year-old Palestinian musician and high school senior from the Druze minority religious community, was recently handed down a sixth prison sentence for his ongoing refusal to serve in Israel’s occupation army. He stated his refusal to serve in the Israeli military at an induction base in Tiberias on 4 December 2013. He says, “I will refuse to serve in the army even if I’m jailed sixty times.”
