    Why in the world would China want NK to put a military move on the US or our allies in the region? China's trade with the NK amounts to only about .5 billion dollars while trade with the US and it's allies in the region, South Korea and Japan amounts to more than a trillion dollars. The US, South Korea, and Japan are China's largest trading partners. Any military move NK might make in the area could serious damage the Chinese economy.

    Oedipus is always an application in the strictest sense. " That's what you really wanted, Jocasta!." That is why intelligence forces, having placed the legitimacy of the election in question with hacking by Russia, will now act as the Clinton's penis-shield when they attend the Trump inauguration. It is a symbol of autoimmunity just right for the occasion. The expelling of the 35 is a variation on the theme that the prisoners are not allowed to claim anything they did on their own, such as the 2016 election. The authoritarian project is to introduce sad effects, doubt and troubled spirit at every turn in lieu of the prisoners realizing what actually happened: desire itself is revolutionary, and can destroy entire sectors.

    Hmmm I suppose in their arrogance of godliness believe that the people will never see the truth in all this - and perhaps their ego's are somewhat justified given the reporting of the MSM, and true too the MSM does appear to be hanging itself these days. We can only hope the curtain falls soon on this modern tragedy heh

    . Do you understand the word PROXY ? Yes you do. It means someone does things on your behalf, but the targeted victim doesn't connect the needed dots in order to put the puzzle together afterwards.

    Yes, I'm not sure you do.
    Proxy

    1. the authority to represent someone else, especially in voting.
      "they may register to vote by proxy"
      synonyms: deputy, representative, substitute, delegate, agent, surrogate, stand-in, attorney, go-between
      "I am here to vote as Mrs. Carlson's proxy"
    2. a figure that can be used to represent the value of something in a calculation.

    . I'll use a different but allowed interpretation of this as well, and I will take one or a few of the words listed above, and keep them in context as well. Let's just use Iran for example, and let's apply the definition to how it uses proxies, surrogates, go betweens, agents, and substitutes that keep them from directly being charged or associated with the bad things that it advocates, wants or uses to project it's interest or ideals in the world.

    Are you saying you believe N.K. may act as a surrogate for China? If so, in what way? I can't think of anything N.K. could actually do other than attack South Korea, Japan or the US. N.K. launching a military attack on China's three largest trading partners and dragging them into a conflict that would destroy the Chinese economy would hardly be of benefit to China.

    You have to have the person give permission to fill out the absentee ballot or have given the person a legal proxy for them to walk in and vote their behalf. You can't just walk in and vote for someone else

    It is not as easy as saying I want so and so's ballot so I can vote

    You have to have notarized proof and it has to have been registered beforehand

    It is probably different in each state and perhaps even in each county

    it is not always possible

    Double-voting – even triple-voting – found in US elections

    . Regardless of trade with anyone, nations still are sovereign and powerful. They are always seeking more power, a bigger stake in the world, a plan to protect their people's economies, and their cultures in which make up the fabric of their lifestyles, cultures, identities, and their ideologies. These things can be threatened in many ways, and if you think trade is more important than what nations hold as sovereign and sacred unto them, then you are Looney Tunes.
