  • Commented on Someone please sack the script-writers
    481: You wrote: "The change that it does NOT make (as far as I can see) is that we are tied into most of the EU's regulations until we have negotiated a future arrangement." That's the key point here. If...
  • Commented on Someone please sack the script-writers
    Well, seems as if Bozo really is a lot smarter than his American role model, Trump. What his deal amounts to, basically, is Brexit for UK with Northern Ireland essentially staying within the EU. For him to throw the idiots...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE
    2418: The Democrats can certainly impeach Trump in the House, though the talking heads in the media, remembering the Clinton fiasco, mostly think that would benefit Trump during the 2020 election, and House Republicans as well. But the idea that...

    2132 again (one of the more interesting posts. Question asked, how can you make capitalism work if you are confiscating capital by force? Answer is that you can't of course. The question is whether you can make socialism work through...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE
    2132: "Most ordinary Americans would oppose confiscating capital by force." Well, there hasn't been much polling on that so it's hard to say. Best indications are that the fairly large swathe of Americans who *own* capital would. As for the...

    1945: Dave, just what are you on about? You did write that nasty irresponsible 1921 comment I replied to, didn't you? Which I objected to, but did not "mock." As for not understanding big words, besides being wrong (I have...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE
    1921: C'mon Dave, let's try to be a bit more honest here, and do a bit less "mansplaining" of your own. I wasn't talking about what Cromwell did to Ireland, but about cutting off the head of Charles I. Your...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE
    Cynic: The Donbass movement started as a Donbass autonomy movement with leftist trimmings, though I didn't care for all those Stalin banners. But then the Russian nationalists and Putin's people took over and various lefty types started being banned and...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE
    1896: Speaking as the author of the Holmes Law of Wikipedia, according to which the accuracy of a Wikipedia entry is in inverse proportion to the inherent importance of the matter it concerns, I am not impressed with Wikipedia as...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE
    1890: Not sending military aid to the genocidal Nazi-infested Ukrainian regime is one of those very few things Trump has done since he was elected that he doesn't deserve to go to prison for. Hey, I've been to Ukraine, both...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE
    1856: What was my source for saying the DNC was involved in paying for the report, and that Mueller repudiated said document? That notorious right wing media outlet, the New York Times. Granted, they didn't emphasize it and you had...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE
    1809: Greg you are definitely behind the times. These days any wanker of an MP, allegedly Marxist or otherwise, of any gender, who is against women's rights is a pariah. If there is anything definitely not "politically correct" these days...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE
    1827: Cromwell had the proper solution to annoying monarchs, though he shilly shallyed corbyn-style about it for too long, to the annoyance of the Levellers, who were more or less the Trotskys of the English Revolution, whereas Cromwell was the...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE
    1790: If there is one thing all Bible scholars agree on, it's the transformative role of Paul, that Christianity became a different thing after Paul converted, moved in on the early Christian communities and basically reshaped them according to his...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE
    1798: Yes, absolutely anything other than permanent fence wavering and Mr. Honest coming off as dishonest is absolutely the worst thing electorally Corbyn could have done. What would have been the best thing? Everybody knows that Corbyn at heart is...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE
    1775: Rewritten? With the possible exception of Revelations, *none* of the gospels were written down before Paul's time. That BTW is something just about all serious Bible scholars agree on. The earliest Christians were not a literate lot. Given the...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE
    1498: Actually, the anti-usury thing as part of anti-Semitism goes all the way back to Roman Empire paganism and beyond. Because of the Babylonian Diaspora, Jews became a commercial population in the ancient world, hated as merchants and moneylenders in...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE
    Whitroth: You still take that crudely obvious forgery that the Democratic Party paid for seriously? Even the Mueller report said it was nonsense. I read it when it came out and I instantly knew it was a fraud. Why? Because...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE
    1490: And who was the Mayor of New York at the time? Benito Giuliani, that's who. *Of course* there was a coverup, and *of course* what was covered up was extreme corruption in the New York construction industry and so...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE
    1755: does it even have to be pointed out that the pilots get blamed because (1) airlines always blame the pilots as the pilots are workers and they are capitalists and (2) as it happens, the suntans of said pilots...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE
    Ah, Bonewitz. Met him once I think. I do know one of his druids pretty well. Said druid, who used to go by the monicker of "the wizard with the lizard," explained to me why they are called the "reformed"...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE
    1338: Corbyn's waverings on Brexit have a much simpler explanation. Labour voters (though maybe not Labour members) are divided on Brexit, so he is desperately trying not to alienate either side. With the usual result in such cases of alienating...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE
    1355: Yes, nothing Corbyn puts in his platform is inconsistent with being in the EU. In fact, he has come out in favor of keeping the "human rights" clauses in the EU Constitution, in which the only one that ever...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE
    Folks, all this stuff about how BoJo is trying to be a dictator and ripping up democracy and all that looks pretty silly now. Yes, he might like to do that, being Bojo, but nobody's letting him. Why is he...
  • Commented on Normal service will be resumed eventually
    Deep sympathies. When my mother died unexpectedly a decade ago I fell into a weird state for months. Even missed a phone appointment with the unemployment office, which is a Real Big Mistake, took months to get my unemployment payments...
  • Commented on Whoops Apocalypse!
    Heteromeles: All good points. The most romantic version of corvee of all was Trotskys "militarization of labor" to Try To Build Socialism Right Now In The Middle Of Apocalypse Now" idea, which Lenin shot down, preferring to go partway back...
  • Commented on Whoops Apocalypse!
    Bring back the draft? In the US? When Reagan floated that one in the '80s, it had to be dropped because it was clear it would have revived '60s style student protest, with unforeseeable consequences. Briefly, there was a pretty...
  • Commented on Ask me anything!
    The discussion of "race" a couple weeks ago was pretty sad, but nonetheless, I'll try to throw in a little common sense. Particularly bad was the idea that the beating of Reginald Denny represented "black oppression of whites." Trouble with...
  • Commented on Story time!
    In fairness, one would have to teleport the sheep too. Who probably would not mind, though it's hard to tell. As for Gibraltar, Spain didn't have a whole lot of choice in signing that treaty. When you lose a war,...
  • Commented on Story time!
    I meant *Theresa* not Jessica May. A slip on my part, I'm getting old. Not an attempt to ascribe an interpretation of just who a certain figure in the books was based on. Not consciously anyway....
