Re: United States is now a Third World Country.

Have you ever been in a 3rd world country?

That question is often asked of people that make the claim that the US is a 3rd world country. I haven't seen many affirmative responses.

Our lawmakers are behaving like those behave in a third world county. They are making decisions on behalf of special interests rather than acting on behalf of their constituents. Lawmakers accept payoffs campaign contributions from big corporate and write laws in their behalf. You do not have to live in a third world country with livestock running around in the streets to live in a country where lawmakers behave like those in a third world county.

So what is your experience in making laws in a 3rd world country? What 3rd world country did you visit and participate in their government functions? What laws in the 3rd world country you were in did you pass?

Jamaica 1973. At the time the government in Jamaica was corrupt. I was with a sales team that was invited to present our PABX systems to Continental Telephone. We gave up, because the local politicos wanted a significant pay off in order to allow our products to be imported to their country. The situation was so bad that Continental stopped all construction in the country. When the existing Jamaican government thugs were overthrown construction resumed.

Sounds like you weren't actually making laws in Jamaica, but thanks for trying, please drive through.

So he has to *make* laws to make an analogy. Are you daft? Why do you purposely ignore the relevance of his experience? What do you gain by keeping yourself in total ignorance?

There was a government with huge control over an industry. His company wanted to compete in that industry. With government help the incumbent made it nearly impossible for the little guy to succeed. The government officials received "contributions" for their efforts in return.

It's not that freaking hard to understand.

So you are in a 3rd world country? Really, better get away from that keyboard oh ITG, and go out and live on the tough 3rd world streets of Cleveland.
