Re: Shotgun Wedding

I think British Royalty makes.a.good.tourist.attraction. It.gives.free.publicity and.helps.to.fill.up.hotels, restaurants and shops. When British royalty becomes no more useful that then it will be truly time for the country to become a republic. But they contribute to the country's gdp by being a ...

Re: Shotgun Wedding

Quite so, Milo. I have been traipsing around western Canada recently and got the distinct impression that in your country they take the HoW very seriously indeed. So much so that it the Brits decided one day that they no longer wanted to retain their monarchy the Royal family could likely take up r...

Re: Neverfail's North America notes.

What we saw of the Olympic Peninsula on way here yesterday was indeed picturesque. But that has been true everywhere we have been in North America so far. Even the flat Alberta prairie was pleasing to our eyes. This corner of the World is blessed with a surfeit of scenic grandeur. Very true. By the...

Re: Israel

Ah Sertorio, I was expecting your retort and surprisingly I agree with most of it except for your assertion that Bashar is the Islamic moderating Messiah. He is a ruthless tirrent locked in a survival battle with other Muslim factions being propped up by Putin, Erdugan, ISIS and Iran. Impossible to...

Re: Shotgun Wedding

A few thoughts: The House of Windsor is still around because they learn from their mistakes. Prince Philip in particular was of an aristocratic background but had to work for a living because his royal family got thrown out of Greece, more than once. Early on he started calling the HoW "the firm" an...

Re: Putin's garage

BTW It seems Putin want to get Iran out of Syria. That is why Russian anti-aircraft missiles did not fire on Israeli Missiles when Israel attacked Iranian forces in Syria. In the struggle between reality and fantasy, why do so many people keep prefering fantasy?... Russia, on a conventional weapons...

Re: Russia meddled in U.S. election: US Senate

"We assess Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered an influence campaign in 2016 aimed at the US presidential election.

Re: Israel

Those who support the Palestinian thugocracy are huge fans of 'international law', yet nobody has taken the Arab world to task for creating and perpetuating an enormous human shield operation, where the Palestinian people serve as a buffer for the Arab world and fodder for well meaning fools' outra...

Re: Israel

Also don't forget the refugees arose out of the first Arab Israeli war when 5 Arab countries attacked Israel in 1948 to destroy the nascent Jewish state because they refused to accept it. That was the original sin. Those who support the Palestinian thugocracy are huge fans of 'international law', y...
