Re: Banning violent ideologies

Over the last 40 years, US national debt went from 40% of GDP which is acceptable to a now dangerously high 105%. See graph. At some point, the US will go bust. The problem is military expenses, not social ones. With less warmongering and imperialism, the US would have a balanced budget, without sa...

Re: more fallout on massacre: this time from Turkey.

It took this unhelpful comment from the Turkish president and political strongman, Recep Tayyip Erdogan , to open my eyes to just what a low calibre of leadership the nation of Turkey is afflicted with The fake coup attempt designed to empower Erdogan to crush all opposition wasn't enough? He was t...

Re: Banning violent ideologies

The problem with your assertions about democracy Cass is that there are plenty of democracies that are not doing what you say they will inevitably do. True for now. But I see it sliding towards it. The western country I am most familiar with is the US. I see popular pressure as the cause of the gro...

Re: Food shortages in Venezuela

Unless you accept the fact(s) that millions of Venezuelans have left the country because of the incompetent and corrupt dictatorship of Maduro and that among them are a large portion of the people that actually know how to make things run like the power grid. Yes Sertorio, and guess what? They have...

Re: Lifestyles of the Rich and Shameless

I had a college Philosophy prof that could start with just about any argument presented to him make three logical arguments as a proof in response, and always conclude with "Thus proving the existence of God."

Re: Life inside a live shooting gallery?

Or how about - "This Muslim boy is going to buy a gun?" Peaceful worshipers should always have a few competent gun-toters among their brethren. If two or three people in the pulse gay night club in Orlando had been armed not nearly so many would have died. Why should you presume that Doc? Gun wield...

Re: US Foreign Policy

I may not be as optimistic, but I think that Europe will eventually rid itself of the US and US presence in Europe. The fact is that Europe does not need the US for anything. Trouble is that some members of the US dpendent European oligarchy are fighting a desperate fight against the inevitable. I ...

Re: Two destructive ideologies

The two most destructive ideologies today are Islam and Socialism. Not even nationalism can compete. Both Islam and Socialism are totalitarian in nature. Following both ideologies to their logical conclusions result in dictatorships. No one who laments multiparty democracy and calls for the banning...
