i need to stop pretending i know what i'm talking about indiscriminately. i was talking to that naked woman in her bath again, this time discussing arguing about what form of government we actually have. all i had was the oft repeated line that we are governed by a representative republican system. she responded that it is an oligarchy. not really understanding either one, i argued. that's what i do. i'm a virgo. anyway, it didn't take much searching to prove myself wrong, or at least farther from correct than she. despite the occasional typo and misuse of the apostrophe, this is a pretty good essay.
