Re: Frequent error... there is no country named "Europe" :-)

I agree that there is no country called "Europe". I even have doubts as to whether it should even legitimately be considered the name of a continent. I suppose geographically it's more of a subcontinent? As for whether it's a country, the existence of the EU makes that more debatable than it would ...

Re: Trump is a dangerous moron

In September 1939, some German soldiers dressed in Polish uniforms broke through the border with Germany, offering Hitler the excuse he needed to invade Poland and thus start WWII. It seems the US is willing to use a similar trick, by accusing Syria of a non-existent attack with chemical weapons, i...

Re: Facebook Bans Image of Jesus for ‘Excessively Violent Content’

No doubt in the decades after the death of Jesus there were efforts by some Jews to "stamp out even the memory that Jesus had ever existed," similar to efforts by certain Roman emperors to do the same. But to speculate that that forms the basis of Zuckerberg's management decisions today - two thous...

Re: Trump is no dangerous udiot.

What you are really saying is that the US should not spend taxpayers' money to protect Europe, South Korea, Japan and elsewhere. Yours is the view of an isolationist.

So much for social media monopolies banning crypto ads.

The hypocrisy of it is laughable, especially when the likes of farcebook still allow rogue accounts to disseminate scams on its platform.
