Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Dude - you have a country which is running around the planet blowing people up at random, torturing them, giving vast hand-outs to mil-ind thugs, which is riddled with insider corruption, is starving its citizens and depriving them of income in the run up to the Christmas season, which has officially sanctioned random wiretaps without serious cause, and has taken to sexually abusing anyone who steps on a plane...

And you're complaining my suggestion would make government unworkable?

Yup.  It also does a lot of the stuff a government needs to do.  And unlike you, I don't see the US as particularly bad except that its huge power allows for a greater scale of abusive behaviour.

You seem to have much lower expectations of sane, functional government than I do.

I, for one, welcome our new federal dick-measuring overlords.... ;)

Be nice to America. Or we'll bring democracy to your country.

Can't remember who first started calling the new TSA machines "The Federal Dick-Measuring Device," but I'm sticking with that.
