Austrians thinking they can and should decide what's best for all of Europe, never a good idea.

Hamon.

But if Macron made the runoff and I were French I'd yell things like "MON ROI EST VIVANT" in reference to him.

You tend to think about this, from what you've said yourself, like it's a Democratic primary. Sanders lost, so you can get enthusiastic about Hillary, since she basically represents the same option. However Macron v. Le Pen would be more like Chirac v. Le Pen. It's not voting "for", it's voting "against". Oh yes, I could see myself being enthusiastic about voting against Le Pen, while still dissapointed it was Macron who qualified for the runoff (same goes for Fillon, of course). If Hamon is your Sanders, then Macron would be Susan Collins at best, preferable to Trump but still, not my cup of coffee.

"MON ROI EST VIVANT"
France can fix that!



Perfect case for electing Macron Smiley

This is the list of the top 15 studied foreign languages at American colleges and universities in 2013.

Wait, they don't study Polish? F**kibg outrageous... but reasonable. It's hard.

-There are fewer Polish speakers than Koreans.

Silly boy. With our present government glorious pro-family policies, there soon will be 100 million Poles.

Arabic. I took it for a year, and it kicked me in the butt.

Man, I've been studying it for years. It still kicks me in the butt.

Dave has been alerted.  As in, Iíve sent him an email explaining the ag situation, and added that to list of requested mod changes I sent him last week.  When will he act on it?  I donít know.  Sometimes he responds quickly, and sometimes it takes months.  The Leip works in mysterious ways.

But Dave is the only person who can add or subtract moderators, so there's really nothing that can be done until Dave responds to said email.

Fun facts:

-The last time I got an email from Dave about anything moderation-related was last summer, when he swapped around some board assignments, including adding TexasGurl.

-The last time he posted on the mod board was in April of last year.


This is waiting for Godot.

I say "Massa-choo-setts", not really with an "i" (and you barely hear the "e"/"uh"). So no Z.

This.

-Kalwejt, I know what's going on very well. Russia has zero concern over the Baltics. Their population is shrinking (unlike RU's), they're tiny, their soil is barren, their population is hostile to Russian rule, their language is foreign, and they're protected by NATO. Russia would have more interest in taking Alaska or Finland than the Baltics.

Russia is viewing former Soviet Republics as their natural sphere of influence or, at the very least, not a western one. No, I don't think Russia would literally "take" anything, but geopolitical realies are more complex than "just taking the land". 

-NATO members are almost by definition within the US sphere of influence.

Well, and Russians doesn't like it.

In your particular case zero would be the most desirable number.

That's right, Hillary Clinton is a PERFECT fit for the Sweden Democrats or Norwegian Progress Party. Can't believe I never realized that before!

You forgot the obvious: FN.

In us terms it's probably mild to extremely liberal. In world wide terms it's center right.
You do realize most of the world's population lives in countries where SSM is illegal, right?

You realize Hillary Clinton would be a far right candidate in many countries.
Name one.
Denmark, Finland, Sweden, Norway and Ireland off the top of my head.

Much of Europe would find her hawkish lean and non embrace of socialism to be to the right, in some of the more liberal countries she'd be far right

You do realize most of European countries are governed by non-socialist parties?

Iran, Iraq, and Syria are fighting ISIS, which gives them points in my book. Switzerland isn't part of the E.U. and has many referendums, which I like. The Baltics are there for the same reasons Cahcon points out, plus they keep unjustifiably fearmongering about Russia. Germany, Sweden, North Korea, and Cuba are all on there for the same reason: their governments keep shooting their people in the foot. The Philippines is there because of Duterte flipping off Obama.

What the f**k could you possibly know.

Seriously, are you aware of what happened in Eastern Europe?

Personally, I disagree with these laws, but "unjustifiably fearmongering" is a testimony to your ignorance.
