Europe, Nationhood and Democracy

Europe, Nationhood and Democracy

Commented Dec 13, 2011 at 12:50:09 in UK Politics

“Very clever. :o)

You don't mention the sagging aspect of European demographics - an ever increasing aged population and few growth prospects aligned against a complicated and overburdened entitlement system that is even now unsustainable. Add to that the austerity measures imposed on the south makes for a disastrous outcome for the Euro.

It may have been a noble experiment, but the naivete on behalf of the decision makers in understanding what backing moves will make the Euro a long term viable currency is staggering. A very hard lesson for Europe is now in the making.”

“He wishes to repeal the Title 10 of the Civil Rights act and let business owners decide whether or not they would like to discriminate on the basis of race, creed or sex. He doesn't think the government should protect people from discrimination on private property. AKA a privatization of the Jim Crow laws.”

“No he is simply defending an individual's property rights. Just like people defend a person's freedom of speech. Should we take away the right to free speech because someone, somewhere may decide to say something racist? It is the same issue.”

“It's surprising to me that in this age of corporate malfeasance and financial ruin that two ex CEO's are even thinking of running for governor of California. One of them (Fiorina) who claimed that "Americans don't have a God-given right to a job." Astonishing.”

“We have Russian, Chinese, even Canadian illegals working here. How does the Arizona law address these illegals. Arizona has one of the largest Hispanic American populations in the states, how can they be sure their law will not profile. Furthermore, what research did they do into finding out what businesses were hiring illegals and what measure did they take to propose a temporary workers program. Why didn't they pilot test this law before passing it to see if it was sustainable, affordable and/or constitutional. It seems to me that they really didn't do much work here at all.”

“Napolitano stopped workplace raids. Since Russians and Chinese can't exactly hop over the ocean, seems obvious that main problem is the Mexican border. I'm sorry if the obvious is offensive to you. The law adopts what is already required at the federal level - maybe if the feds did their job and "pilot test[ed]" the standards, AZ wouldn't have been compelled to pass the same provisions at local level.”

“xenophobia is just so ignorant and ugly. We need real immigration reform: temporary workers' program, background checks, border control, employers of illegals cited once the first two are in place. We can do this correctly - why don't we?”

“Even better, thank you. People need to realize that such vileness can be real. I've personally known people who talk like this. Mostly incredibly insecure little men who were beaten when boys by their alcoholic fathers or cruel classmates. They spend the rest of their lives overcompensating for those feelings of powerlessness.”

“I would agree if, in fact, the specialists were using the free market to mark their product. What they did was sell a AAA rated MBS to unsuspecting customers then turned around and bet that the market for these securities would fail based on their knowledge that too much false paper had been created. This is criminal fraud - don't think they've escaped charges for it. It's coming.”
