They elected Clinton for two terms which is all that any President is allowed to run. The choice wasn't Bush vs Clinton it was Bush vs Al Gore.

Gorann, ignorance is a burden for some but apparently it's not a burden for you. You seem to quite enjoy it.

I read that corruption is a problem in the public secton there in Croatia so maybe dishonesty on the part of DD is nothing new for you. We expect more however.

Do American's (per capita) consume any more chocolate than Croatians? Nestle is a Swiss company as far as I know. I'm sure there are no Croatian companies involved only because there aren't many Croatian companies.

I don't think you really know what you are talking about to put it mildly.

The truth is you just got offended like some little children, or  simmilar, over nothing. And also the truth is that you were again talking about and concluding about something (or someone) you know nothing about(thats like some kind of a trademark for lots of people in this part of the world)

I think you did okay until you started attacking the people who are pointing out the shortcomings of Dino (not to mention their countries and political system, which you are ignorant of: Clinton was impeached and found guilty of lying under oath, not for having an affair), which is what this entire subforum and this thread is all about. Here are the facts: Dino used pictures without permission for their website. Dino used beamshots of the wrong lights. One is stealing, the other is fraud. They are both illegal. And while it may not be a big deal to you, it is a *terrible* way to run a business. It is not whining to point this out or to say that it is wrong. Other sellers follow a higher code of conduct, even places like DX, so it isn't too much to expect Dino to do the same.

Thanks for the heads up. Did not knew that. So Al Gore never wins it seems. Not that i liked him better or anything... Obama kinda looked a "brighter" choice at the time. XD

That's a bit weird that a president can't be elected over and over if people liked him.  I guess it is a fail safe feature. Smile

It wasn't always the case. During World War II President Roosevelt was elected 3 times and the law was changed after that. Generally, change is good as even a "good" official can be a little too comfortable in power. We generally tend to go back and forth between the parties that are in power. It's a moderating effect.

Brted   IS  the  Dino!!  Laughing  LOL!!

All joking aside, I would hope that at minimum sellers would acknowledge the owner of the photo (if known) and remove photos as requested by the owner.  For me it's all about respect and trust...  DD needs to work on that.... Nutz

I wish most of our electors would see it that way. We basicly vote out clown after clown. Ali Baba' and the 40 thieves would probably be more honest in a long run. We excell at electing time proven liars. :/

Election time in my country is behind the door. Not even bothering to go voting since the candidates are all toilet flush worthy. :/ One thing you Americans have (at least many do) is the integrity to stay by your president even if he does something not relally in line with the population toughts. (very apparent during Bush's mandate)

American presidents are limited to a maximum of 2 terms in office, which made him ineligible for reelection.  Too bad, I liked him more than either his predecessor or successor.

Franklin D. Roosevelt was elected twice before WWII (in 1932 and 1936) and twice during WWII (in 1940 and 1944) for a total of 4 times...  But who's counting?   Wink

Term limits are kind of an odd feature of democracy. It's like saying "Please somebody stop us from voting for this guy!"

They are odd and I don't necessarily agree with them for most offices where they've added those laws but I actually agree with it for the Presidency. Can you imagine 4 years of Bush if for some reason he had the votes?

I think change it what is needed in that office continuously. If a state has a good governor and they want to elect him over and over ...I say go for it.

Georgia lets a governor serve two consecutive 4-year terms, then they have to sit out one term. Not many ever come back, but at least it gives them the right to do so. I think Russia does something similar which is why Putin could come back again.

It takes just one president to be effective at creating a nation of poverty and then following up with handouts, thus creating a desperate and reliable voting base. Look at Detroit: The example of economic failure and yet ONE governing party over the past several decades. Obviously they have term restrictions as well, but it's the status quo of the policy by one particular party. After all the mess over the decades that voting base seems to be complacent with what they have. Oh btw, Detroit's poverty level is the highest in the nation at over 36%. That's a pretty strong voting base when your influence reaches them. 

 

Wow, this thread kind of deviated from the original purpose. I mean, we already know politicians are corrupt and unethical. We can still have hope private business doesn't sink to that level permanently as well Smile

More proof Brted is the Dino ....

In his recent review of the Uniquefire 2100 Brted freely admits  he's a dino "shill for hire"

I like Japan ..

At least they have the good semse to quit when things aren't working well ..

U.S. presidents don't need to commit "Hara kiri" .they just should bow out gracefully..... Sumimasen.

Don't know how you get "shill" out of what I said. I was posting a link to Dino anyway as part of the review template, so I might as well see if anyone is using it by adding an affiliate code, and if I get any of Dino's money, then great. But it is kind of ironic that this post started commenting on Dino stealing my pictures and now I'm an affiliate (though I didn't sign up until after I wrote the review and well after this thread started).

I think Boaz was joking. Demand a free light (your choice) for stealing your pic's.

I suggest

I think *ALL* politicians should be limited to two terms; one in office, the other in prison.

Pass it around...

Vote anti-incumbent; you get to keep your party affiliation, and still vote the bastards out of office.

Pass it around...
