Actually, I worked three jobs at minimum wage, topping out at about 80 hours a week, moved back in with my dad, and still couldn't make ends meet. Of course, that was with student debt and a car payment, but it's insulting that working double-shifts on a regular basis at minimum wage can't pay for a car and an education. It's actually why I joined the Navy.

You make some good points, but the principle behind paying representatives minimum wage works if you also forbid them from taking donations. I can't decide which one of these prospects will more definitely and absolutely never happen ever, but it's nice to dream.

By the way, though "Deez Nuts's" campaign successfully highlighted the inane mockery of U.S. governance, it turns out he's 20 years short of the minimum age to be elected: he's actually 15 year old Brady Olsen from Iowa. One must be 35 to run for POTUS.

On the upside, with Repubs shedding their non-greedy and non-racist members, the U.S. will have a one party system soon! Like China! yaaaaaaaaaaayyy.... (move to Costa Rica, maybe Denmark or even Australia)

I give it two election cycles. If something doesn't change for the better by 2024, I'm leaving. (for aforementioned locales)

The Matriarchy of The Three Moons wrote:It is meaningless to give low salaries to politicians.

The fact is that in order for a person to stay in a job he needs one of the following motivations:

1) A High salary that he believe justify his qualification and professionalism.

2) The Satisfaction he is getting from the job.

If we were living in a perfect world where everyone get satisfaction from their jobs, then the idea of "same salaries" could have worked (btw socialism work on that idea but mostly on the point of everyone is a working unit).
Satisfaction on the other hand is rather rare to find among the public sector.


Paying high salaries to politicians only encourages them to do whatever it takes to try and stay around for as long as they possibly can. Politics shouldn't be a career, you should do your duty and move along.

Isn't that age discrimination? Why aren't the civil rights lawyers jumping all over this? Would be funny though if a 15 year old made it in to office. Just picture Brady Olsen getting bullied by Putin.

It's probably based on philosophies that state that nobody under 40 knows anything, but someone they wanted in office was 35 when the constitution was being written up. Age is not necessarily a measure of maturity or wisdom though, from what I've seen. An intelligent 19 year old might be wiser in their 40's, but a clown will just get a redder nose over time. You'll constantly hear people tell you they are right, by saying that they've been doing something for ten years, when it's pretty clear they've been spinning their wheels for ten years without learning a lot. Given how out of touch many of the elderly are with technology (snowballs in Congress as proof climate change is a lie or the internet being a bunch of tubes), keeping younger people out of higher office (Congress, Senate, etc) isn't always in a country's best interest.

In Canada, the Prime Minister only has to meet two requirements: be a Canadian citizen and be of voting age (18 or more). It does make sense that someone old enough to vote, go to war, drink (except in provinces where the drinking age is 19 to keep kids from drinking in high school), and do all kinds of other adult things be able to hold public office. Do they have a lot of life experience? No, but some silver spoon, sheltered, trust fund kid might only have self-indulgent experience by the time they are older too, so results will vary. So far though there haven't been any Pitt the Youngers in Canada, but you don't have to be an aging fossil that holds up a cross every time they see a smart phone either. The problem in Canada and most democracies is that by the time a politician makes their way up the food chain, they're much older and much more corrupted than when they started out (with their hands tied by special interest groups and corporate backers), instead of older and wiser to make good policy decisions.

Would anyone like to see my halloween flag variant now?

The Cross Regional Tennis Association is happy to announce that the 4th Tennis tournament this season will be opened around the week of the 7th.

The Greenwood Financial Taracco Open will be hosted in Taracco Hills Tennis Center, Taracco, The Grand Duchy of Iyari, Wysteria

This is an Hard Court surface, both men and women, Normal ranked. and will be sponsored by the Greenwood Financial.

Its going to be an interesting tournament and hopefully with epic moments.
It might even help some of us committee members forget the ranking incident 2 weeks ago, when we had to degrade one of the players ranking points
after he was granted false points during the Fothair Aonghais Championships In The Green and Pleasant Dominion of The Bruce, several months ago.

Sure.

here's my halloween flag. What do people think?

Isn't it the same as the old one, but with different coloured/toned horizontal bars?

Yes, but I said it was a variant originally. I wanted something that looked like the tokuopolis flag but also "halloweeny", so I kept the red top part of the flag, as well as the green bar, and recoloured the tupuxuara partially black, turned the pink into dark red/brown, blue into black & yellow into dark grey.
