    > "Oliarchy" [mitch672]

    LOL, you almost got it right: 'oilarchy'!!

    When BabyBush started babbling about '(US)Democracy' we sensed that whatever it was that he was referencing had already been replaced with something else.

    Nice find.

    The sad aspect is that the oligarchs have convinced many who will never be prosperous, that an oligarchy is better than a democracy.

    Yes, they have done a good job convincing many average income people that "they might be wealthy/rich" at some future time, so they should support policies that help the 1% now, even though it hurts the average income person (them) now and in the future.

    'Tesla is having so much trouble': Au contraire, these 'troubles' are miniscule, and just sufficient to keep TM constantly in the (free) media eye.

    I did not read the full report but the headline itself is fallacious the US is not a democracy nor has it ever been one, it is a constitutional republic
