@flash, yes it would require some changes... But that is what my local version of webdip is for.

Re: The mass exodus

Cool, that is great to hear. I have to say I'm slightly surprised. I don't find the mobile experience particularly friendly; but then I'm not a search engine, so I guess Google can't use the same variables I use. Have you any knowledge of Progressive Web Apps?

Re: Multiculturalism Ruins Nations

At what cost? Progress is discussed at length in this video https://youtu.be/tmk47kh7fiE but my point is more general still. It wasn't just exploitation of women and people of colour which built the modern capitalist industrial society we all enjoy (because 'we' are all on the Internet). We have als...

Re: Multiculturalism Ruins Nations

This is such blatant racism. The Islamic golden age brought us some of the biggest developments in mathematics and astronomy in over 2000 years, culture definitely has an effect on discovery and invention, but not race/ethnicity. I never specified any race or ethnicity, nor did I deny that Arabs ha...

I just don't understand how declaring a national emergency is the same thing as Mexico paying for the wall... But the would make Trump a lier.

Re: Government Shutdown

I assume the 1.4 billion was in exchange for some changes to how migrants in the US at the moment are treated.

Don't know how Congress negotiated it. Some may even spin it as just repairs to the current wall/barriers.

Also the fact that it is for a fence not a wall may seem relevant to some...

Re: The Right's Denial of Climate Change Will Destroy the World

<snip> We are in agreement, but I don’t think you noticed... Climate change is disastrous for animals & plants living where it occurs (then subsequently for us if we depend on them). Humans might well survive the ordeal better (or at least some of them might). There was an element of tongue in chee...

Lastly, hydro has the massive advantage of ensuring water supply during droughts by using up the water in their reservoirs that would have otherwise flowed into the sea. Imagine if California didn't have any hydro reservoirs during their last drought, and all the water from the melting snow in the ...

Re: Poverty Sucks

It was kinda, but I also didn't get time to finish... The point would be, if taxation is actually destroyed, in order to prevent inflation (control the money supply); along with interest rates taking money out of circulation and into investments, as you alluded to; does it matter? I think the psycho...

Does it matter if taxation is used to keep the inflation down (limiting the money supply, thus keeping money 'scarce' and valuable...) interest rates have a separate function of encouraging savings/investments....

I don't live in the US either, but the fact is the US has basically created this debt, by printing I owe you cards, and continues to fund it's military by expanding it. It is the biggest counter example I can think of. The EU's central bank (the ECB) has just ended the 'quantative easing' program wh...
