In what countries do you usually call an investigation on your opposition after you gain power?

Government rules are an absolute pain in the ass even at my level, and I understand wanting to dodge them just to get some goddam work done if you can finagle it within the law. Dealing with those rules ought to be part of the job description, even for people at the top, but I don't think it requires malice or criminal intent to see someone dodge them.

Jesus, with you and veni it's now 5 against 1.



For what it's worth, when I was with the government (which was during the time period we're talking about) there were all sorts of data security rules that a number of people used to work around because the systems people were supposed to go through were unwieldy or just wouldn't work. Admittedly, it was a very different context and generally didn't involve classified documents. But Ken's just mistaken if he believes that 2008-09 was so long ago that nobody without some nefarious purpose would look for work-arounds.

I guess the perception of winner is a function of the observers IQ

a) If you are sufficiently dumb to buy in the overwhelmingly made-up crap drooling out of "The Donald's" mouth, then Trump has won.

b) If you are capable to distinguish demagoguery from facts, then Trump was pure sadness to watch.

P.S.: I am not delusional enough to believe that there is a politician which does not occasionally spin facts, but Trump lives in a entirely different reality
P.P.S.: Can somebody tell Trump to button his coat and get rid of the cheap 1980s red satin ties (out of his own "collection")?

it happens quite often in Europe if there's a corruption gate during parliament term or after when opposition takes over, Parliamentary Committees is what they are called and I take they are more or less equivalent of Congressional Commission in the USA, often you need super-majority appoint one so if some retards from opposition want to launch parliamentary commission not always they will be able to do so if it's some benign shit and they don't have the majority.

Uhh... what? And I thought my reading comprehension was bad... Who the hell is Colin Powell?


I just wrote down 1,000,000 "work-arounds" that were readily available in 2008 and are better than hosting a mail server in your basement. PM me if you want the list. It's got some coffee stains on it.

Where Jacek lives great tradition is to execute opposition party after glorious elections results are decided by President for life.

Those Eastern European countries have a different standard of democracy than we do. Gotta give 'em a pass on conventional democratic norms.

at least we don't have legalized corruption, also we don't have presidential system so in fact ATM you have much more power in hands of one person than we do and you are much closer to being effectively an oligarchy

Is the physical location of the server really all that meaningful?

Nice attempt at a butthurt evasion, but that's not the point. Your assertion that it's somehow normal for the winner of an election to gin up a retributive governmental investigation of the loser is completely inaccurate with respect to U.S. national elections, which is what we're talking about here. Saying that it's common in other countries with different institutions and traditions is irrelevant.

If someone could just break into your house and take it? Yeah, I think so.
