That happened in 2016.
I think I've mentioned it earlier in the thread but in 2016 EIU's democracy index downgraded USA from "full democracy" to "flawed democracy" despite the fact that the index is mainly based on data from an oranisation founded by president Roosevelt and fully financed by the US government.
This had nothing to do with Trump btw. USA had been sliding downwards on the index for several years and it's just a coincidence that it crossed that border the same year he was elected.
Don't tell the Cheeto or he will insist on running a "perfect democracy".

They just decided to severly restrict press coverage...

I hate to say this but I guess the club of democratic countries just lost the member USA.
Our membership had already expired. Just a lot of people had not realized it.

I expect to see a lot more Sergeant Schultz type responses as more of the bottom of the barrel is exposed

I sincerily must question the senators fitness for office if they need stuff like this:
This is ridiculous.

Start here and scroll up:


:LOL:
He quotes his hourly rate, which works out to $66.9K/year. That's just below the 75th percentile of individual income, not the top 1% (99th percentile). To be in the top 1%, you need to be earning about 5 times as much.

Anyone who brags about their hourly rate isn't in the 1%. In fact, people in the 1% rarely talk about their income, because it pisses off all the people who make a lot less.

And he was being 100% entirely serious. You should get on the Tweeter and fix his math for him. I'm sure the world needs to know for sure.

Who brags about their hourly rate? Whenever I need to know mine for something I have to look it up.

I am sure it is low for my field and title but whatever.

Not to mention, nobody in the top 1% is earning an hourly wage.
