Re: Neverfail's North American ruminations.

Other West Indian entities (I'm thinking St. Barts, Br. Virgin Islands, etc.) are evidence that it isn't necessary to be led by white folks to succeed. That runs counter to certain preconceptions out there. It's funny how no one ever finds it difficult to believe that a tiny country like Iceland is...

Isn't Bermuda located in mid-Atlantic? Well then, it cannot be defined as a West Indies Island country now can it?
You're confusing the West Indies for the Caribbean. They're not defined the same. In fact even the Bahamas are not in the Caribbean.

Re: Discrimination against Asians in University admissions

Yes, it is. Statistics show that half of murders are committed by blacks. So you can’t blame police for being cautious of blacks. Don’t forget their lives are on the line. A moment’s hesitation and ntheir lives are dead. A lot of the fear blacks have have been drummed up by the left. They want to k...

Re: Bitcoin and crypto currencies

Sure, there's a lot of VC money in it, so I'm not surprised you're hearing about it all day long! And yes, there are good possible uses for blockchains out there, like maybe student transcripts or certain sorts of registries. But the hype is stratospheric, like how a few years ago MOOCs were suppose...

Re: The Future of the World

The Chinese model, as it currently exists, is unsustainable long term . Strange! I sometimes get the impression that it is the the US model that is is unsustainable in the long run. :( The life on Earth is unsustainable in the long run. But hope abounds. Fortunately we have about a billion years be...

Re: Neverfail's North American ruminations.

And for all that, some parts of the West Indies are actually upper income. Bermuda and the Caymans are wealthier than, say, Australia. On paper? Nope. Bermuda is like if you put Beverly Hills on a rock in the middle of the ocean. Bermudians are so well off that they have to import people from elsew...

Re: US Foreign Policy

The UN represents the world as it is, and is the only place where people can talk before they start shooting. It's either the UN or nothing, and nothing will only make wars more likely and more frequent. That's false. There is also the option of multilateral talks, which historically have proven oc...

Re: The Trump-Fatty Kim summit in Singapore

Even if was taking Kremlin propaganda at face value - which I don't - I would never support my opinions on surveys using biased samples. When you habitually post it without comment, it's pretty tough to tell the difference. For instance, believing that Bashar al-Assad uses chemical weapons based on...
