Re: What does Britain hope to gain from this?

The UK is an aged toothless bulldog. It should stop dreaming of the good old days when it could impose its will on the "natives"... It can't do that any more. These days the natives can bite back. However, it would seem that the 'natives' sometimes invite them back. In the case of Brunei the govern...

Re: The top 1% of Socialism - featuring Tony Castro

Actually nowhere does the article say that he is rich. And virtually everything you see on Instagram is faked. New York City has an apartment solely for Instagram influencers to take pictures in https://www.independent.co.uk/life-style/village-marketing-new-york-city-instagram-penthouse-villagestudi...

Re: Impeachment!

That might even be true cass. But it still does not exonerate Trump from a deserved impeachment should he be proven as guilty of even half the lawbreaking and committer of improprieties in public office as are alleged. My one and only regret is that it had to await the arrival of a Democrats majori...
