  1. Once upon a time he did just that. Then he started to support Trump.
  2. Very clearly bigoted comment. On the other hand it's also very clearly stupid.
  3. So I guess no negotiations are even necessary since Brexit means Brexit and it has a univ.ersally unerstood meaning. Good to know.
  4. Yes, Netanyahu won't be there forever. And given the devades-long drift rightward of Israeli politics, it's not at all unlikely that he'll be replaced with someone worse.
  5. Not if you do it to yourself.
  6. There aren'r many Sunnis left in Baghdad.
  7. I kind of missed his falsehoods, too. I kind of missed his falsehoods and empty assertion, too.
  8. One member of the team is not Robert Swan Mueller III /ˈmʌlər/ (born August 7, 1944) is an American lawyer and civil servant who was the sixth Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, serving from September 4, 2001, to September 4, 2013.

  10. "The country has a high level of debt. Where there is debt in any country. Corruption usually follows; because of human nature being what it is. The world is not full of pius honest religeous people." This is your quote, right? You are the one who posited a relation between debt and corruption. I just pointed that many highly indebted countries are a lot less corrupt than some with low debt.

  13. Well, look who's blinking first: Qatar’s Critics Scale Back Demands in Diplomatic Bid Four Arab nations locked in a dispute with Qatar said Tuesday that they have revised and curtailed their list of demands for Doha, in a diplomatic overture aimed at moving toward a solution to the standoff... Among the more prominent changes to the Arab quartet’s was a decision to stop calling for Qatar to shut down the Al Jazeera broadcasting network, or to expel people deemed problematic, such as clerics with extremist Islamic views. The new list also avoids imposing deadlines and casts a broader approach, asking Qatar to refrain from inciting violence and to aid regional and international efforts to combat terrorism.’s-Critics-Scale-Back-Demands-in-Diplomatic-Bid-.ByL2U2w3B-.html This is a link to an article that originally appeared in the Wall Street Journal. No firewall here. I wonder how long Jared of Arabia is going to hold on to his position.
  14. People who are suicidally depressed have something chemically or physically wrong with their brains. It's not necessairly something that can be helped. Severe depression is a very difficult and resistant thing to treat. Unless you believe in immaterial things like souls or minds that exist independent of our bodies, he's no more responsible for his illness or its consequences than any other person with a disease is.
