re: Swiss billionaire interfering in US election - for Hillary - StringedInstruments
[quote] Let's just be real. There is one segment of the population groups like these target every election. They target this group because as a whole they vote 95% democrat. When you have a voting block that consistently votes this way, you damn well know who they are going to vote for.[/quote] ...

re: Swiss billionaire interfering in US election - for Hillary - StringedInstruments
[quote] I'm taking it that you didn't read the article. Hillary is for sale. She is the politician Bernie preached against. Yet, mainstream Dems refuse to acknowledge it.[/quote] To be fair, their other option is Trump. Maybe they have ill-conceived notions about who Trump really is and what...

re: EU leaders want Brexit to happen as quickly as possible. - StringedInstruments
[quote] yeah but they also want to negotiate a parachute before they jump out the plane. [/quote] I think it's more like they want to make sure they've buckled their seat belts in the life boats as they leave the Titanic. It might be a little bit of a ride to the yacht down the way. ...

re: Which is more important? Economic prosperity or sovereignty of a nation? - StringedInstruments
[quote] I think both are really important, but I think most people would prefer a job to telling a bureaucracy to frick off. But maybe I over estimating the desire for self reliance. [/quote] Well of course both are really important, but I'm referencing the argument against Brexit: Economic pro...

re: Could a US Representative actually leave it up to the people? - StringedInstruments
With current technology, yes, they could. It's possible. But votes would turn into Facebook likes. The upvote/downvote here would be our government. The true representative is someone elected to handle the government stuff while citizens go about their business. The average citizen doesn't h...

Which is more important? Economic prosperity or sovereignty of a nation? - StringedInstruments
One of the biggest criticisms I've read about Brexit (besides the typical racist, xenophobic, etc drivel) is that the UK just decided to send itself into a recession. That the pound will tank and struggle and take a long time to get back to its current standing. That the UK fell behind France in ter...

re: What's so bad about a "United States of Europe"? - StringedInstruments
[quote] Italy has only been unified for 150-ish years, so why isn't everyone clamouring for Italy to fragment? Why isn't Italian unity considered a smaller step towards "globalisation"? [/quote] If Tuscany were the 5th largest economy in the world with one of the oldest and most important cultur...

re: Hillary the hag responds to Brexit - StringedInstruments
Not really trying to insinuate anything here - But Trump released a press statement. We got every word and could see exactly what he meant. Why am I having to read about what Clinton hinted? What did she actually say? Either way, from what you posted, it's obvious that Trump had a focuse...

re: PuttaDaForkDown v2.0 - StringedInstruments
What do you all do when the going gets tough? Cut my calories from 2400 to 1900 to lose some weight. Also cutting out all sweets and adding in a lot more vegetables. I'd like to keep it up until January 1st and see where I'm at. I've tried losing weight in the past, but I always get "trigge...

re: Trump campaign's statement on Brexit - StringedInstruments
Trump seems to be trying to set the bait for Hillary to say something blatantly anti-American. She won't take it though. She'll just make some stupid claim like "Oh, was Trump really for trade, immigration, and foreign policies when he set up Trump University? Was that for our citizens? Come on,...

re: How will this affect Merkel and Germany? - StringedInstruments
[quote] I used to have the same problem then an English teacher told me, "Effect is a noun. Affect is a verb. Things can affect an effect." Once that sunk in my thick skull it's been easy for me to remember.[/quote] Using that strategy for remembering the affect/effect rules can really effec...

re: Why did David Cameron resign? - StringedInstruments
[quote] Someone has to lead the transition. Cameron felt like it should be someone else. [/quote] Which is really admirable. I feel like most of our recent leaders in the US would stay on just to frick over the country because they didn't get their way. That goes for both Republicans and De...

re: Anyone really think Scotland is going to actually vote for independence? - StringedInstruments
[quote] Scotland already tried this in 2014 and lost 55% to 45%. Maybe now that Britain is out of the EU, things will be different. I believe Scotland voted heavily to remain in the EU yesterday. [/quote] Did you read the OP? :lol: They did vote remain and the sentiment is that Scotland wil...

re: Anyone really think Scotland is going to actually vote for independence? - StringedInstruments
[quote]Yes they will and at some point the remainder of Great Britain should simply say good riddance.[/quote] Why is that? Genuinely curious. I know Scotland is only 10% of the UK's economy, but it seems like losing 10% would still be something you would want to avoid. ...

Anyone really think Scotland is going to actually vote for independence? - StringedInstruments
The UK won't leave the EU for two years, and it looks like other countries in the EU may have their own referendum (See the thread about France, Italy, and the Netherlands). The EU over the next few years could start to show signs of collapse or at the least economic weakness that would not be more ...

re: Why are all of the liberals against Brexit? - StringedInstruments
From what I understand, the propaganda machine on both sides were turbo charged. One of the talking points against Brexit was that Brexit was based on anti-immigration stances, which liberals labeled as xenophobic and racist. Brexit proponents were for a strong nationalistic identity, which is t...
