    By all appearances it is.

    How fitting that it is at the core of the DNC.

    Are you at all bothered by the fact that you come across as a severely retarded teenager?

    Does it depress you that ad hominem was your mama's name?

    It was Hitler's middle name, BTW.

    Bwhahahaha!!

    It's just so very sad to be reminded that you are - apparently - a grown-up human being with quite a few years of life experience under his belt.

    Most people aquire a sense of maturity as they age.

    And then there are those like you.

    🙁

    I refuse to give you the last ad hominem attack.

    Speaking of adolescent, your mama never reached adolescents!

    BTW, thanks for the contributions to my thread. I would expect nothing else from you.

    Not one word about the topic at hand?

    Very telling.

    What do you want to discuss about corruption in New York and/or the U.S.? Your linked opinion article (from 2015, oddly) doesn't present any attempted quantification of corruption levels throughout various U.S. states.

    Interestingly, all three of the NY officials mentioned in the article - Skelos, Silver and Libous - were convicted but each had their conviction vacated on appeal (though Libous' was because he died while his appeal was pending and not on the legal merits). Skelos and Silver do face retrials (I believe Silver's has already started).

    Any reason why you're quiet on the fact that two of the three NY politicians mentioned are Republican? Or that the Republican leader, Trump, was born and raised there?

    Throwing around Latin phrases is not big or clever, particularly when out of context.

    Why do you think his reply was an "ad hominem"?
    It was simple name-calling.

    Just wondering why New York is so corrupt and devoid of morality.

    So you agree that corruption, this latest round of it, comes from the top?
