Tim Smith commented on the post, Egypt Reportedly Set to Pass Law Criminalizing Atheism 3 weeks, 1 day ago
This is an indication the religiots are getting rattled by a growing number of unbeleivers.
As the article points out 866 is hardly the truth.
Still nothing like making it illegal to make it more popular. Atheism […]
Ha! The most anxious of moslems are probably those with the least faith, they really know it’s just a few thousand year old con trick.
Most likely these government officials themselves.
It’s only going to get worse for them, eventually a tipping point will be reached and suddenly followers will be leaving in droves.
The more government has to…[Read more]
Was just making this exact observation on the article about Trump pulling out of the paris agreement. Well this really is proof of the ‘predictability of stupidity’. If Trump and his republican idiots think everyone has stopped laughing at the circus clowns then it’s only because it might be they cause real damage with their horsing around in…[Read more]
Modesti, think you hit the nail right on there. USA needs to be liberated from it’s own dictator before worrying about anyone else.
We are about to have an ‘election’ in the UK and it looks like we will get a dictatorship by default. There really is no effective opposition and what there is gives me little inspiration to vote for it. Could be it…[Read more]
If this is a gesture, then quite clearly this gesture is being made towards North Korea. They are also busy gesturing back in much the same way. Only difference is there really is very little substance behind them.
I get the feeling from the Chinese that they have just given up hope for NK and are preparing for the worst outcome just in…[Read more]
People always fear what they don’t understand. I would suggest, therefore, there must be an awful lot Donald Trump doesn’t understand. Especially when it comes to science and technology.
Hence he has gone into denial by surrounding himself with those he hopes know even less than him. Although we are talking about science here I suspect his…[Read more]
When I read articles concerning Donald Trump I always get the feeling he may be more open to persuasion than at first appears. The two difficulties are that he is often starting from a position very different to the average politician and has a somewhat unusual world veiw that is somehow parallel to much conventional wisdom but not necessarily in…[Read more]
Most of the smart money moved out of fossil fuel based investments a few years ago.
Dinosaur Trump is trying to return to the fossil era. I suspect it’s partly because he’s still upset they built a wind farm right next to his golf course in Scotland.
Looks like he’s out of touch, out of date and is just trying to regress into history. So long as…[Read more]
Just saw your catalogue of phobias there. Think I, along with many others, must suffer from
Islam has no monopoly on fanatical stupidity, it just seems to be in the lead at this point in time. Otherwise it would be special and unique, which it isn’t.
I agree Trump didn’t cause the problem. But he’s in the driving seat now to get it fixed.
And there’s the worry, the first step to fixing a problem is to admit it exists. If he’s starting with denial then he’s making the same mistake as the liberals have in their approach to Muslim extremism.
That will get him voted out, but what…[Read more]
`banking on scandal’
Yes, he seems to be very busy trying to distance himself from many of his past activities and not just the business ones.
Might also be ‘got to’ by one of his own countrymen. It’s happened before, it won’t help if he’s not too popular with the security staff. A sign of that will be if he starts to use his…[Read more]
Great, this will get rid of them even quicker, and he’s backing them into a corner so they get stuck with it. The only way out needs backtracking and humiliation.
I thought they’d learnt not to do this when they avoided taking a position on the authenticity of the Turin shroud.
Well can’t say I’m unhappy if they want to be the authors of their…[Read more]
So it’s the old story. Politician’s only real skill is to get elected. They aren’t trained to solve problems, this time they have created a huge one they don’t even understand, and by extension, even if there are positive advantages to brexit they may be unable to realise these, unless they stumble upon them by chance.
On top of this they run…[Read more]
Comment #3 Alan
Looking at the ability of politicians to cope with EU reform or brexit makes me think we have no chance when it comes to biodiversity and climate change the whole thing is just too complex for our political systems to deal with.
All it will take now is for Trump to be elected and we’ll be finished.
Sorry if going a bit off topic.
Thanks for those comments Alan.
What you say makes me feel even more that most of the more prominent remain campaigners were either some of the most arrogant oeople who ever existed. Or were closet leavers deliberately sabotaging the remain argument.
I was very surprised we had the referendum when we did as Cameron originally said 2017. Almost…[Read more]
Like it or not it would appear very unlikely we will have any further vote on brexit.
Although it isn’t unknown for politicians to go back on what they say. However what is being said at the moment on all sides is, the decision is made and the UK will be leaving the EU.
Exactly how this is acheived is not very clear and I am sure there is some…[Read more]
This is far more complex than you are trying to present, under the rules of the EU Greece should never have been allowed to join, so that is a failing of the EU. In fact the books were deliberately fiddled to get them in, just makes it worse.
The Ukrainians were actively encouraged to become more militant in favour of ties with Europe…[Read more]
Interesting reading the comments on here, the supplementary polling questions about the EU found that most ‘leave’ voters were not motivated by just economic arguments. Whereas ‘remain’ voters were looking almost exclusively at the economic part of the debate. It was/is certainly true that Brexit will at the very least cause issues in the markets…[Read more]
