Re: Theresa May survives no confidence motion

Latin civilization, which in many aspects is different from other contemporary civilizations, whether American, Chinese or Indian. In its post-colonial and post-imperial posture, Europe wants to be free and independent to try and influence the rest of the world in a positive manner. By helping to p...

Re: Marist Poll: Trump's Latino Support Jumps 19 Points

Run polls until one of them makes your guy look and only release that one. Sure, somewhat. But that there's even one poll that shows this result is genuinely newsworthy. And the bottom line is his support is down. Everyone's support is down due to the government shut down. This is in no way surpris...

Re: Theresa May survives no confidence motion

I had hoped some of you might have wanted to comment on this, but it seems that people from the "anglosphere" only care about their countries, and don't really give a damn about Europe. Which is fine, but supports my idea that Europe must go its own way, without any ties to the US... The US is not ...

Re: Trump’s steel tariffs have backfired spectacularly

It was exceptionally foolish because no one can say there wasn't warning, especially as free trade is the one area where nearly all economists across the spectrum agree. Free trade is good, except when it isn't... Less performing economies must retain the possibility of temporarily protecting some ...

So much for the oft-advanced anti-immigration argument that "they just want to come here and turn our country into the same Marxist hellhole that they left".

Re: Theresa May survives no confidence motion

Too pessimistic. Why should England lurch from one crisis to another? As for the mutual defence treaty, what I had in mind includes the US. The Royal Navy is no longer what it used to be. As China flexes it’s muscle Australia will need help. It’s not just UK as in the past but will now include the ...

Re: "Show me the man

Everyone still languishing in the American gulag at Guantanamo is an example. Steve, since Guantanamo is located on Cuban soil, why have not any of the inmates escaped over the fence into Castro's Cuba? Is that a serious question? They're incarcerated in a maximum security prison, they're not on ho...
