  • Commented on Constitutional crisis ahoy!
    The lion’s share of revenue for the US Federal government comes from taxes on individual and corporate income. The majority of Federal expenditures go to retirees, medical care for the poor, and certain social-welfare programs. I would hazard to guess...
  • Commented on "Tomorrow belongs to me"
    IIUC "kike" is an Americanism. According to legend, at least, illiterate Jewish immigrants at Ellis Island refused to make a cross in the place for their signatures and drew a circle instead, and the Yiddish word for "circle" was "keikl"......
  • Commented on "Tomorrow belongs to me"
    So Northern Ireland are Scotland are both on the Remain side. I know that a significant faction, ahem, of the Northern Irish population don't see eye-to-eye with their neighbours to the south, but how do they get along with the...

    state enterprises [in the USSR] bore an eerie structural similarity to their capitalist Bizarro-world counterparts Lenin & Co. gave the capitalist system credit—perhaps more credit than it deserved—for having figured out how to get large groups of people to work...
