Re: Another arrogant billionnaire for president?

Maybe English speaking people don't like or look down on French speaking people? Or maybe Oprah simply was in a bad mood that day? I have experienced it myself Cass. I first went to France in 1975 and with the exception of a small number of notable Anglophile exceptions, the French had a strict rul...

Re: What happens when Socialists run out of other people's money

To clarify, then by "welfare" you're referring to Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid, not to programmes like AFDC and SNAP. You heard it here first: the Republicans don't have the political will to touch those programmes, and the Democrats don't have any interest in doing so. Not to mention th...

Re: What happens when Socialists run out of other people's money

Trump and his Republican colleagues must do welfare reform (ie cut welfare spending) next. Or the US will one day become like Venezuela.

Re: Another arrogant billionnaire for president?

Could Oprah Winfrey knock off Donald Trump in the 2020 US presidential election? http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/americas/oprah-winfrey-considering-president-donald-trump-bloomberg-a7607441.html If she does would she make a better president than Trump? Some Americans are strongly opposed to...

Re: What is going on in Iran - A new uprising?

Human soldiers will soon be as obsolete as horse cavalry. Learn the lesson of Sphacteria: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_Sphacteria#Attack_on_Sphacteria If Humans are no longer needed will they even be in the loop? I think AI will eliminate that fairly soon too. Well I guess we have solved...

Re: US Foreign Policy

The only reason why there aren't yet common European armed forces is that France and the UK still think that they need their own armed forces to back their foreign policies. Well, have not this proven to be true in practice? :) No. The Malvinas incident and playing second fiddle to the US can hardl...
