Re: Belmont Club

What perplexes me is that the human condition is better than it's ever been. Yet people are coked up, nay, infuriated by the very fabric of life itself. Didn't see that coming..... or didn't take it seriously.....-_-.......

Night of the Demon.......

If anyone thought the 2016 revolt against the institutions was transient recent events may force a reconsideration. Instead of dying down open political war now permanently grips Washington. Abroad, time has healed no wounds; immigration issues have not dissipated in Europe, on the contrary riots a...

Re: "America’s Achilles’ heel " - Spengler's warning.

We can work now to reduce the cliff and soften the fall and there's no reason why we can't help ourselves by helping the future. Would that make a good tagline......"Helping Ourselves By Helping the Future"? Less truculently confrontational than "Don't eat the damn seed corn".......;P........ I had ...

Re: David Goldman: Will China overtake the U.S. as the world's leading superpower?

Yeah, in that the Administration uses sanctions as a bargaining tool to force a negotiation point which may have some relevance to why sanctions were instigated in the first place, but not really. Before the Trump presidency this was called 'flip-flopping' or such, but nothing like a coherent 'polic...

Re: "America’s Achilles’ heel " - Spengler's warning.

America's Achilles' heel is our demographics...... and complacency: Except in Africa and South Asia, the world’s population is aging rapidly. Between 2010 and 2050 the proportion of Americans over 65 will nearly double assuming constant fertility and immigration. By 2034 the Social Security Trust Fu...

Re: The Trump's incriminating collusion with Russia megathread.

There you have it, boys and girls: None of this has anything to do with paying off floozies who claimed to have done the dirty with a presidential candidate. No-one cares about that. It's about using the legal system to extract "confessions" from Trump's former attorney Michael Cohen that will keep...

Re: Crooked Trump!

What he seems to be and who supports him is not as important as you might imagine. His general modus is defiantly oppositional to the expected role of a legislator; to have a policy or proposal and to advance it by appeals to logic and the common interest and to work through opposition to an accepta...
