nunz: but even in NZ things like having to produce photo Id to deposit cash into your bank account has become standard practice?

 

Wait, what? Is this really a thing?

 

Edit: Just looked it up. It's for cash deposits of $10000 or more.

Not for me with ANZ it's not; maybe large sums but I did a 4.5K drop a few months back after selling my partners car and I just needed my eftpos card.

Russia won the cold war - USA lost it. That's why so many other wars being fought all the time. gotta distract the plebs.

 

 

Nope. Russia didn't even exist when the Cold War was on. Given that the USSR and Warsaw Pact were dismembered, it would be difficult to claim that they were the winner.

 

Wars are more about gaining (or at least not losing) access to resources. USA has an inexhaustible appetite... that is why wars are being fought. There's plenty of circuses to distract the plebs.

 

 

 

 

Russia still owns a lot of the USSR and has a lot of influence in the warsaw pact countries.

 

Russia is really really really crazy oil rich among other things.

 

Russia still has a space program

 

Russia still has a massive active army

 

Russia doesn't have a gazllion dollars debt.

 

Russia has gone ahead since the wall came down - USA has gone backwards.

I believe that the trigger is $10k.

 

That's either quite a lot of money, or not very much, depending who you are in NZ

There are a few inescapable things that we know today:

 

 

Wow, that's quite some piece there.

 

So what do you say about one of Hillary's main sponsors George Soros?

 

I mean, why did she except money from a person who sent his fellow Jews to the gas chambers?

 

I suspect we are about to find out just how holy and just Hillary, Bill and their foundation are. Assange has a wiki xmas day present for her so I hear.

 

 

I dont think she is totally moral either - politics is dirty. Someone once told me politics is like a septic tank - the biggest lumps float to the top.

 

However i don't think she ever thought about boinking DT's daughter, hasn't ripped off billions of dollars, failed to pay her taxes etc. The BEST dirt DT could say about her is she used a private, non-govt email server to send emails on. The rest he had to do by getting at her via Bills peccadilloes.

 

No comparison.

Nope - $500 will get you there.

 

Also try cashing a cash, negotiable, not crossed, or bearer cheque for even $100 and watch what happens.

Anyways I think this thread has run it's course, at least for me, I pretty much expect the conversation from this point to head the same way all 20+ page political discussions do and end the same way.

Russia GDP per capita is below the world average, similar to Mexico.

 

35% of the wealth of Russia (140 million pop.) is owned by just over 100 people!

 

Russia ranks very highly for corruption - 28th out of 28 in Transparency Int'l reports.

 

Life expectancy at birth in Russia is more than 10 years less than in the USA

 

Murder rate in Russia is more than double the rate in the US, about ten times higher than NZ.

DT was quite relaxed about what he said about her during the debates. As they say, give em enough rope...

 

She has apparently been associated with devil worship and while that is not specifically a crime, it does not sit well with American voters. 

 

Hillary had hundreds of income sources and I bet you very few were taxed, this will all come out in due course.

 

The main difference in their wealth is that DT actually earned most of his wealth as opposed to having it donated to a fund.

 

When you look at Chelsea Clinton who gets paid $900,000 from the Clinton Foundation for a part-time job, you can see why they were so out of touch with their voters.

Oh please.  We've had Godwins invoked a couple of times in this thread, but that's truly the silliest thing I've read on GZ for a long time.

Agree completely. It has now reached the point of absurdity. I am unsubscribing.

Agreed, Initially i was interested in seeing peoples views on who would win and why. Got a bit into detail and then Godwin came out of hiding.

 

Election has run its course, The subject: The President Of The USA - Who do you think? has been answered.

 

 

 

 

 

On a side note, People in the office are having First aid training.

 

We just heard a whole heap of screams and laughter and concluded the world has come to an end.

 

Enjoy your Thursday.

That says a lot about the average IQ of Americans!

Emotional intelligence was the problem with America - not IQ.
