  1. Friends, It's been a week since the US general election, and a new page in American politics has started. Let's put the other thread to rest, because it escalated into personal attacks, so let's respectfully discuss the new president's tenure and related matters here. Let's remind ourselves that the point of this forum is to welcome a diversity of people and ideas, and to have a good time, even when we disagree with others; and, it'll be fun, because we'll be having a civilized discussion, right?... So, president-elect Trump.... We'll be watching but who can say what he'll act
  2. A record number of Democrats are lining up and declaring themselves as Democratic candidates for the 2020 Presidential Elections in the USA. Pete Buttigieg caught my eye the other day in a town hall meeting televised on CNN. I thought he was a well spoken young man, with ideas and values that I agreed with. He needs 65, 000 donors to be invited to the Democrats debate. I would like to see him there, so I donated to his campaign.
  3. Former President Barack Obama delivered a rousing eulogy celebrating Lewis' life. "He, as much as anyone in our history, brought this country a little bit closer to our highest ideals," Mr. Obama said. Consider it a lesson in leadership and human values. Topic is locked to keep out trolling (we'll deal with all the exotic trolls in these forums in the coming days).
  4. This is from BBC: Vegan protests: 'Un-Australian' activists arrested, PM Morrison says Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison has criticised animal rights activists as "shameful and un-Australian" after dozens were arrested in nationwide protests. While - I have to admit - I'm note sure where PM Scott Morrison stands on issues, It looks to me like taking out a page from the Orange Orangutan's (Donald Trump) book. Divide the country in an effort to conquer. Pitch one group of people against another and start creating a condition that is hostile to people sharing values. Probabl
  5. Trump is not the problem; the DNC (i.e. the Democratic National Committee) is. When Carter (screwed by OPEC, unpopular thanks to OPEC, and sabotaged by his own party) was defeated in 1978, the Democratic National Committee decided that the plebe that voted Democratic could not be trusted to choose electable candidates. In the future the DNC would choose its own super-delegates who would enable the choice of good candidates. In 2016 those who read newspapers read that: The super-delegates were 15% of the total. Therefore, if the elected delegates were Sanders 49% and Clinton
  6. Inexplicable decision Online government portal Diavgeia turned out to be one of the most important reforms carried out in Greece over the last few years. A decision by today?s leftist-led coalition government to dismantle the transparency initiative program was based on absolutely unfounded excuses and represents a major setback. The government portal allowed citizens to have access to decisions regarding state recruitments and procurements, the expenditure of public organizations and other interesting information. In the absence of Diavgeia, what is more than certain is that the cor
  7. Thoughts? I think some form of campaign finance reform should be seriously considered.
  8. The hotly anticipated Jason Bourne 5 is now in filming and they selected Greece to play a major part in the film. Original director and team are back so this will be the smash of 2016. Sadly the Greek Government did not want the film shot in Greece, so they instead will shoot the Athens/Greece scenes in Tenerife.. :tdown: http://www.gazzetta.gr/plus/article/802525/dioxame-ton-mat-nteimon-kai-i-tenerifi-egine-ellada-pics Game of Thrones found similar problems.. and they also decided to go elsewhere.
  9. Was interesting, Tsipras was completely pro the Turkish deal. He did not have one red line. The Cypriots forced the EU to not open 5 vital EU Chapters on Turkey. The EU agreed and those Chapters remain closed. Tsipras could have asked for Turkey to recognise Greek borders that are constantly violated - sea and air and could have asked Turkey to recognise the Greek status of the islands of the dodeconese. Tsipras could have said Turkey has to scrap Turkey's causi belli against Greece if Greece moved is sea borders to 12 miles. Instead, Tsipras demanded nothing, except Poland, Hungary, Czec
  10. The British parliamentary election is only a week away now and it looks like it will certainly be a hung parliament. Hard to predict what will happen, but we could end up with some sort of rainbow coalition of miss matched parties. What is your guys thoughts on this?
