If my opponent moves his army from Tuscany to Piedmont and I convoy my Piedmont army to Tuscany via the gulf of lyons at the same time, will they swap places?

Interesting read
I'd like to hear what the right wing thinkers (and not trolls) think of this article, as well as the liberals here.

Mostly a criticism of market liberalism: https://jacobinmag.com/2017/05/handmaids-tale-margaret-atwood-trump-abortion-theocracy

Tax dodging and capital flight
Ok, this youtube video discusses it. In brief, company extracts mineral wealth, sells for a low price to parent company based in a tax haven, declares no/very little profit. ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8ocm42ytXto )

Probably not in the Bible but...
Before Jesus took over John's ministry what did people think of the fact that a man in his upper 20s wasn't married and had no children? Wouldn't that have been exceedingly rare at the time?

I am retiring from Trolling
I will henceforth focus my efforts on promoting games, offering opinions on actual issues and an occasional contribution that may be amusing. My goal was never to see the forum overrun with nonsense. Sadly its becoming unreadable and the threads are so abundant that trolling is now all thats happening. Sorry webdip for ushering in this era.

Completely unrelated thought
You can easily walk out the door and abandon your life, start over and become a new person. But can you do the same to your mindset? Can you drop all previous prejudices/perspectives/opinions, (but not facts) and build a new world view? A new model for interacting with reality?

I seriously lost my cool last night, and I'm quite sorry. Although we discuss very serious, and sometimes life or death issues for some, that tone is way out of bounds.

About those earth rays..
Years ago, I started a discussion (and an infrequently used meme) about how I used to have severe headaches as a small child until a small metal device that my parents can't describe very well was buried in the frontyard and my headaches disappeared overnight. My parents cited mythical earth rays as the cause of the problem. The brilliant minds of webdip saw a placebo effect as the only possible answer. I found another possible explanation and would like your thoughts.

JY, you forget that countries join the EU *knowing full well* that they are bound by the rules and regulations. It is a federation of sovereign states which have agreed to a large set of common laws (but not all).

Kind of how the United States works...with the exception of fiscal and electoral unity.
Ogion (3982 D)

Actually, I know a number of military folks including friends and in my family. Why do you think I'm skeptical here? They're just people and will behave quite unpredictably. The culture isn't as bad as cops, but these are institutions that threw up no roadblocks to torture, chemical weapons use or bombing civilians. If they'd told Bush and Obama to stuff it, I'd have more confidence, I guess. When the military hangs people for water boarding and then turns around and does the same thing itself and insists it's ok, I get understandably skeptical

James, in your analogy, which is wrong by the way, the governor of California has a veto. And that governor represents his government, not just himself.

Your pro-EU rhetoric isn't working. The ONLY argument people make to stay in is access to the common market: essentially free market, no regulations to get in. But The conservatives in Britain just say "Brexit" and they're DESTROYING Labour.

And in the EU all votes count, with equal representation. No funny stuff with electoral votes where the minority of the people gets it's president, and not the majority.

For some reason, your making a rebellious anti government military out to be a sort of successful model. Read history. From Caesar to Napoleon to modern day Nigeria, isolating the military from the common folk and government does not work

Furthermore James, the EU has no army nor police. These are at the country level, each with their own democratically elected governments. So the EU cannot even enforce anything. And if you don't like it, you can leave (see Brexit). US states cannot leave the Union, EU countries can.

Someone's not typing emotionally at all. Except I think it's kind of racist and transphobic to describe black and trans people as CONPLETELY unfunctioning in society. You should really try to be less bigoted

Well, France and Germany are about third of Europe by themselves. So yeah, the U.K., representing about a tenth of the population of the EU, wants out by the barest of majorities and might split apart in the process. That does really say a lot since there are a lot more countries interested in getting in than in leaving

And combine that with NATO and defense funding, and things change. Besides, it doesn't take a military to control the people

Seriously James, if you were here I would knock half your teeth out. I am sick to the death of puerile assholes like you threatening my family and make it so that I have to worry about my kids. Maybe if you were part of a group that gets beaten up and murdered with regularity you'd understand, but right now you're showing all the complete assholeness that is so fucking typical of asshole white guys.

Barron von Trump just got admitted...
to middle school at St. Andrews Episcopal in DC. "Melania Trump cited the school’s diversity and academics as the reason behind the selection"
This was reported by Time Magazine.

Is anyone here aware of what kind of diversity a school with 38k tuition has? Even CAPT_Brad can't afford that!
