Re: US Foreign Policy

"US withdraws from UN Human Rights Council" http://www.channelnewsasia.com/news/world/us-withdraws-from-un-human-rights-council-10449488 A good start . . . Once the US has subverted the UN in the way it did the League of Nations, we may expect the same consequences... By "subverted" I guess you mea...

But you've long since proven capable of ignoring anything that doesn't support an anti-American narrative and believing anything that does, no matter how gull...

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...

I must remind my black liberal Friend who is always reflexively complaining about discrimination. The only groups facing institutional discrimination are Asians and whites.

Re: The woes of Italy

No, never fail. Populism means promising popular policies regardless whether it is good for the people. Who decides what is "good" for the people? Intellectualy superior people like you?... :D That's why the wise Greeks decided that people would be chosen for office by lottery, and could only stay ...
