  • A Conservatives, by definition, loves their country. They want to preserve the political, economic and cultural systems that make it what it is. Leftists, by definition, hate their country. They hate the governmental, economic and cultural systems that make it what it is. Leftists are like someone saying they love a person whose appearance, habits and personality they dislike. It makes literally no sense. Oliver looks at a few abuses and excoriates an entire system- one which works well far more than the isolated exceptions he chose to appeal, well, to idiots like you incapable of research or logic. It's the one thing he knows how to do to ve funny. What Oliver knows, being of British birth, is that coroners go back a very long way. What he also knows, being an intelligent if profoundly dishonest man, is that entrenched systems usually are workable if only because they've been in place serving a necesary function a very long time. People simply wouldn't put up with incompetence here past viability

  • Here is a fun thing that happend This past may i was accepting votes in the eu elections when someone showed up with both their and their parents voting card stating that their parent had died and this should not have received a voting card for this election Turned out this was a standing problem since they died in the us during early 2000 and there was still no official death certificates the electoral authority still cannot count the as dead and strike them from the voter roll Since the voting age is 18 people born in May of 2001 had the right to vote in this election people who died before some voters were even born still can be used to commit voter fraud in Europe because the us administration is so massively inefficient

  • Seeing so many U.S. citizens in the comments angrily responding to non US citizens when the latter point out how problematic things in US seem to be,is the very reason why this,and every other country in this world,is going to CONTINUE to be run by assholes,incompetents and greedy people,and progress will come slowly and at great cost. Instead of throwing the good,ol' ''well,your country sucks too,so...'' bullshit rant,maybe try and focus on becoming a BETTER country? Crazy idea,right? But I guess you'd be content on living in hell on earth,as long as everyone else lived the same way,too. Exactly how far removed are you from middle ages simpletons and peasants? Think about it.

The fact that there was an uncovered and unrefrigerated body in the corner that there was no big deal about. These are people’s bodies for fuck sake! We have to have proper doctors, facilities, and autopsies.
