I really don't care much if Tsipras wants to make symbolic appearences. And it's nothing to complain about either way. That said, it shows the way he wants to play and I think he overestimates his own position.

Greece is not in a position to blackmail us at this point anymore, and if they intend to go about this in an aggressive way which does seem to be the message so far, they stand more to lose than anyone else.

We'll see.

His opinions sound grumpier than our resident Grumps.

He hardly has any real opinions. It's just repetition of what has been heard elsewhere.

Moderate economy (moderate).

This is the only reasonable answer. I mean, a good economy is only good for some people, and a bad economy is just....bad. The middle road is the most sensible solution.

Guys, we're in Bushie's radical right-wing idiot phase now. This happens every cycle. It's best just to ignore the nonsense until he has different "views" in a few months.

Good, good. The Democrats need to fight against this right-wing madman at every turn, before he destroys the state of Illinois.

Thankfully, he won't be able to.

No. There's no reason to have "seperate but equal".

Pat Quinn appointed Frederick Ruiz to the office of Acting US Senator on January 26th 2012, three days after Kirk was admitted to hospital.  Ruiz, a Democrat, allowed the Democratic Party to temporarily expand their Senate majority during the 112th Congress.  He left office when Kirk returned to work in January 2013.
Funnily enough I can't find any results on Google for this.

Gee I wonder why...

Copenhagen, although Madrid is also lovely.

Thanks everyone for all the nice comments.

SYRIZA. Needs to happen eventually, and most of their fans will be massively disappointed with them.

Ignoring the role of low energy prices (which the article mentions) isn't particularly honest.

Detroit is pretty tolerable. Nothing really special, but simple and easy to deal with, especially for entering the US.

The only thing that can stop a bad toddler with a gun is a good toddler with a gun!

Yes. Idaho has been extremely irresponsible not allowing law-abiding toddlers to carry.

I obviously do not support SYRIZA, but I'm guessing they won't be the catastrophe they're made out to be. And I suppose even if they are, might as well get it over with.
23  General Politics / International General Discussion / Re: Germany: How the SPD wants to fight against an alleged voter fatigue ... on: December 28, 2014, 08:41:42 am
I oppose this as unnecessary, costly and problematic to implement. There's no issue whatsoever with being able to vote in Germany. If we want to increase turnout, the voters must be given a reason to vote.

How about the Brazilian solution (vote or face a legal consequences)?

I also oppose mandatory voting. I understand the logic behind it, but I disagree that having lots of people casting votes that don't want to be there is a good thing. And fundamentally, freedom to vote should also be freedom from voting.

I don't find 70% turnout all that problematic, but if we're really interested in raising it again, there need to be policy incentives for those that are uninterested in voting. Just passing a law doesn't solve the fundamental issue.
