Is there anything you can't use the formation of America as an example of in an argument essay (AP English style)?

I do. First impressions are important and overdramatizing socialism in order to gain a large audience won't do it any justice.

Or even worse it might exclusively appeal to the reality tv crowd who overdramaticize IRL.

First impressions are important for what?
It's a TV show.
And how the fuck is this dramatizing socialism in any way shape or form?
This is dramatizing 6 year old punks in the work place.

And again who the fuck cares? It's a TV show.

The impending revolution. People will be like "maybe we should try worker co-ops?" and then they'll remember how bad this show was and then try to be more like Cuba instead.

It's mass media. It plays a role in shaping attitudes.

Seems that the premise of the show is the dramatization of worker democracy in the workplace.

I'll make sure to shoot you first.

It's mass idiocy.

If you think for one second that the morons that watch this crap can make a leap to politics I'll shoot you last.

So we actually have to renegotiate the financial system. All the debt in the world would be wiped out and we would start from square one.

So to answer your question, it is very practical and necessary to reset the world economy. The only other alternative is to destroy your economy while you try to repay. What sense does that make?

ron666

Can you explain to us the bretton woods system?

I have read the wiki entry among others.

I'm asking for his interpretation of the system because I don't get how a system of fixing the exchange rate implies an accumulation of debt (and a subsequent forfeiture of it). I don't get where the 50 year figure came from, and I don't get why this should matter considering that - according to the wiki article - the BW system was already abandoned in the 70s when Nixon departed from the gold standard and as other nations free floated their own currencies.

We just need to use the economic system from Harry Potter. Just use bronze, silver and gold pieces.

This is brilliant.

Talking about yourself in the 3rd person, eh?

Bit annoyed that it made me go and read her posts again though. The sooner she properly disappears from politics in this country, the better.
