Aww, that's too bad. What was it that made him not qualify?

Not posting the required sum. About $0.25m I think.

I wish he had built a Death Star and brought us all to peace.. :(

Ah, that would do it. That's a rather high amount for Ukraine. I bet it was set up to keep normal people out of politics >:(

Well.. Those were(and are) and most likely will be at power, as those set by oligarchs of the state. They can afford that I guess.. Besides I would assume they ally and get their representatives represent interests of a group of wealthy guys.

That is how government and politics tends to work sadly. They want to keep it to themselves.

I wanted to add "that's how it works in any other country", but thought I rather don't :P

Nah, its perfectly accurate. Power begets power.

Well, the point is that people generally suffer from this. But in Ukraine they do a lot more than in the U.S, although it seems rather clear to me the theft in U.S. is in a lot larger scale, but nevertheless the "simple people" still get enough in the U.S. to accept this.

And in Russia, due to the disappointment in westernization people although see & understand this corruption(& suffer form it way more than Americans do, I'd assume) still vastly support the power, as they see no immediate alternative.

People still justifying anything that ever happens by saying "yeah but America done it too"....boring.

What do you mean? I mean I understand you, but how is it related to the few recent posts, if it is?

Sorry, you are right, it hadn't been mentioned for a while. I work with 2 Eastern Eurpeans and am SICK to the stomach of hearing "yeah but America have done worse" as a means to justify their warped right-wing views on how amazing Putin is. So now I'm all RAAAGGGGEEE and stuff. Got carried away.

I've been told good THC is great for ADHD and Anxiety. I'm tempted. But it's still a crime here :(

No. When I was high, I was always "What did I come in this room for?" so ADHD is out, and it's easy to get paranoid. It creates euphoria and exaggerates emotions, well it's hard to get very angry, perhaps because you forget what you're mad about.

“Throughout history, poverty is the normal condition of man. Advances which permit this norm to be exceeded — here and there, now and then — are the work of an extremely small minority, frequently despised, often condemned, and almost always opposed by all right-thinking people. Whenever this tiny minority is kept from creating, or (as sometimes happens) is driven out of a society, the people then slip back into abject poverty. This is known as "bad luck.”

― Robert A. Heinlein

Arthur, I disagree with nearly everything you've just said, and I speak from 18 years experience. The paranoia can be an issue for first timers, but it depends on the person. Everything else you said is horse crap.

I think its a personal thing. What works for one person, may not work for another. I have experienced that with prescriptions, and I assume it's no different with "under the counter" remedies as well ;)

That's funny, as my 22 years of experience pretty much echoes what he said. So where does that leave us?

It leaves us knowing the pair of you are paranoid lightweights with social issues and other mental problems.

They make me feel like a virgin. Well, almost. I tried once, about five or four years ago.
Append: actually twice. 2nd was bad. It was some synthetic crap.
