Re: UK and the EU: In or out?

So, what trick do we think BoJo and the Rees Mogg will rely on to accomplish their goal of a no deal exit in two weeks? The supremacy of EU law over the Benn act?

Re: Trump -- the last 100 days

We are going to enter difficult terrain. At what point do you decide that it is unreasonable and/or inhuman to execute an imbecile? Todays meeting in the WH showed Trump at his worst, or close thereto.

Re: Trump -- the last 100 days

I think we need to go biblical or perhaps borrow from Hieronymus Bosch to come up with the proper treatment of Trump. Sadly, the best we can do is removal from office by impeachment followed by a criminal trial for treason and death by hanging. Which is a pretty weak remedy...

Re: Nobel Price 2016

The early reaction of the generally noisy, trolly and often mean spirited forum on EconJobRumors is nearly unanimous in the opinion that this is like the worst prize ever. They also dwell a bit on the history of the relationship between the two from MIT, where I guess a key development was revealed ...

Re: Trump -- the last 100 days

As far as Yanks go, they were really betrayed by a unilateral decision by Trump, against advice and without consent. This is what happens when all the grown-ups have been thrown out of the room.

Re: Trump -- the last 100 days

So, speaking to the " Values Voter Summit" today, Trump threatened to sue Schiff and Pelosi. Because, they don't make him look good.  Trump's attorney Jay Sekulow told CNN the President's legal team is "looking at all options" after Trump floated the possibility of a lawsuit against Schiff and Pelo...

Re: Boris Johnson - the last 100 days

I'm still taking the under on that one. But maybe I'm underestimating the desperation in Brussels.

Re: Trump -- the last 100 days

So, Trump can celebrate the Turks eradicating our Kurdish allies (funny - the US does not have allies!) and a few mass shootings, but probably not that much more for a while. Maybe some California blackouts and/or wildfires. That'll make him drool with happiness!

Re: Trump -- the last 100 days

Consider being a Trump whistleblower. If he finds out who you are, he will kill you. And there will be no consequences. Because, why would there be? Lindsey Graham? Background sounds of people throwing up...

Re: Global Warming - What We Can Do (Mitigation)

The trade-off seems to be medieval times for a relatively long time or modern times for a few decades. Of course, those of us with only a few decades left to live anyway, may be biased... But, then again, there is always the promise of technological progress. Which better happen in a hurry!
