Tsipras appointed as his External Affairs Minister a well-known Putin admirer with ties to the infamous Aleksandr Dugin.
Splendid.



he isn't rocking the boat with EU sanctions against Russia:

THE FOLLOWING MOD LEAKS HAVE BEEN DECLASSIFIED TO BOLSTER PUBLIC OPINION IN THE WAR AGAINST SOCK TERRORISM

Anyone know where one gets roofies?

ask AHDuke

Your question was the topic title "If Obama is a failure, does that mean the end of American social democracy?" I responded, as well as others, by saying there never has been such a thing in an organized political force outside of being a faction of the Dems. It wasn't about how you think social democracy should evolve, or how effective social democracy is, or any other of your topics you like to endlessly philosophize on, it is the question of what social democracy "is" in relation to American liberalism and if it ever existed in the first place.

My point was, in relation to something you said, that it's silly to call Keynesian economics "social democracy-lite" when social democracy is a moderate form of another thing to begin with. There can't be a diet-diet-soda. Keynesian economics is Keynesian economics, Social Democracy is Social Democracy, American Liberalism is American Liberalism. If you want to play these incredible game of stretching definitions to loosely connect the dots between random ideologies, fine, but it basically makes the whole process of even applying terms to something meaningless, and thus this discussion becomes, meaningless.

Your ability to obfuscate semantics to avoid actually posting anything of substance will never cease to amaze me, Marokai. But as long as it keeps you from thinking too deeply from the real questions of the day, why, for the sake of humaneness I shan't keep you from continuing to do so.

Yeah, it's about all he is good for, the filthy scum.

I'm already a paranoid driver and I'm really slow at texting. Yay, the government is looking for my best interest... or is it!? They took away my liberty to run people over while looking at my phone and writing messages!

Obviously the freedom to run over people while texting is more important than the freedom to not be run over by people who are texting. And if you think otherwise, you are probably a statist or an authoritarian.

I hope they don't ban texting while driving in Austin or DC.

Mint, don't argue with the 20 year old virgin.

Resolution on the Moderators

1. The Northeast Assembly hereby recognizes the MasterNazi needs to keep his girl problems out of the Northeast Assembly Thread.

2. The Northeast Assembly hereby deports Gustafascist back to Sweden, and condemns his Presidency as the ultimate failure.

(this is just a small sample of a few posts I clicked on, the back ten pages of the Post Moderation board are literally all either reports made against Hamilton or by Hamilton against his haters)

The new government announced some measures today, but didn't see anything about its income tax hike to 75% on incomes beyond 500k euros.  Has it said anything about this yet?

That proposal was in their May 2012 platform and they have not mentioned it since. There was zero mention of tax increases in the platform they ran on in 2015

Well, unless they raise SOME taxes, how are they going to fund their spending - especially, as they are refusing to sell things off.

Honestly, if I were them, I would sell Western Thrace to the Turks. Erdogan would pay a fortune Smiley

Here's their 2015 platform:
http://links.org.au/node/4209

It's revenue neutral, with €12 billion from increased revenue, mostly to be earned from encouraging/coercing compliance with existing tax laws and the related debts that Greeks already owe

Hamilton's "Napoleon" account was supposed to already be on mod review, ban pending Nym's return online.

That error has been corrected and since Hamilton was able to make this thread it shall be repurposed into a memorial so that the community can pay their respects to the most successful sock account in forum history

It's very amusing that both Le Pen and Melenchon publicly congratulated Tsipras after the election
16  Questions and Answers / The Atlas / Re: A spooky coincidence on: January 27, 2015, 04:11:21 pm
So who was the person with five sock accounts (of which Maistre was one)?

The recently banned accounts Maistre, Chilltown, vytas1993, TDR1994 and OpinionatedGuy were created by Giovanni, who was banned from the forum in November 2013 alongside his sock accounts BobBaker, Hafez, Orthodox, Scabr and Gamecock.

Napoleon should be allowed to stay. Isn't there a statute of limitations? I say if you manage to successfully evade capture for 4 years, you should earn the right to not be banned.

unfortunately in these trying times, with constant attacks of sock terrorism, we have regretfully been forced to suspend the writ of habeas corpus

Nah. That doesn't make any sense at all.

The last time Hamilton logged onto the forum was the day after Napoleon started posting, and he logged in from the exact IP Napoleon was posting from

I regret to inform the forum community that Napoleon is a confirmed sock account of banned forum user Hamilton and an obvious one at that so it's kind of terrible how it took us this long. Nix's allegations here are not true but allowed me to uncover the bigger picture
21  Questions and Answers / The Atlas / Re: A spooky coincidence on: January 26, 2015, 10:58:12 am
I saw you mention this theory in chat but I thought it was a joke- I did not realize how peculiarly those dates lined up.

Tsipras's first act as Prime Minister: laying a wreath at a memorial where Nazis killed 200 Greeks

I'M SURE THIS IS NOT SYMBOLIC AT ALL

The more I think about it, the more I believe Tsipras knew exactly what he was doing by immediately seeking support from ANEL. This sent an immediate signal to the world that his government will take a hard and uncompromising line against austerity, and that he intends to be negotiating with Europe from a position of strength. An alliance with ANEL will prevent critics from being able to make a traditional "left vs. right" issue out of it, and instead he can claim to be leading a movement that's so important that it transcends traditional partisan boundaries. Also if he takes a hard stance against the troika he'll have an easier time keeping both ANEL and his own party in line- if they're playing hardball with Europe, nobody in that coalition is going to vote for new elections while the stakes are so high.

I'm not sure if this will work in the slightest but I definitely see the method to the madness

Let's not forget that he is one of few leaders who managed to keep all his MPs through the last parliament.

Actually the only one

Isn't KKE also kept all its MPs?

my mistake, you are correct! I was going through the different parties by memory and momentarily forgot they existed
