Re: Trump -- the last 100 days

It's actually quite funny for a foreigner to watch Americans wetting their pants over Russia doing to USA what USA has done to many other countries (including Russia in 1995).

Re: Trump -- the last 100 days

Indeed, it doesn't look good for Trump. But... politicians like Obama or Clinton are also heavily dependent on extra-national powers: global capital, international elites. This is why they are flocking to Davos, Bilderberg meetings, this is why Obama's first public photo after he quit the White Hous...

Re: Trump - the first 100 days

National security-wise, Poles would be far more trusting in their European allies. Trust barbarians? http://www.dw.com/image/39606357_303.jpg I remember similar scenes from Polish towns when the opened first big electronics supermarkets with hugely discounted sales offers (Saturn, etc).

Re: Trump - the first 100 days

Any thoughts? et vincere nemo dividat A kind of Balkanisation IMHO. National security-wise, Poles would be far more trusting in their European allies, if Germans dropped their habit of doing bi-lateral energy deals with Russia. It's been a sore point of Polish-German relations for years, but so far...

Re: Trump - the first 100 days

It's summer, people are lazy because of the heat, bored and looking for entertainment. Of course they will flock to Trump. They'd also flock to Bono, Ozzy Osbourne or Lady Gaga.

Re: UK General Election 2017

I did wonder whether to go for "Large Labour Ladies," but in speaking that the initial caps get lost. So I put large and Labour the other way around, I thought better for branding. Of course, "Large Ladies of Labour" is quite good too. Rather like Merry Wives of Windsor. But I r...
