The presidency does not have anywhere near enough influence over the global economy to prevent that.

Central American evangelicalism is definitely of the vulgar, far-right, unmistakably American variety.

Robin Williams was great, though I oppose on principle any GIF that just consists of a person mouthing words with a caption over it.

I didn't find the thread for this. Uruguay 38% atheist, yay!

The biggest 'yey' should be the fact that not only are 38% atheist, but 41% are still Catholic. The alternative is a saccharin happy clappy nightmare.

The evangelical conquest of Central America is a disturbing prospect, isn't it?

Every response is now in except for Dereich's, and he's notified me that he'll be in soon. I will begin writing up the next turn.

Considering that the sentiment is aimed at ISIS and not the local Sunnis, probably not many.

ISIS consists of local Sunnis. A scorched-earth campaign would sour many of them to the United States.

That's really awful. What disgusting cowardly monsters. We need to kill or help the Kurds kill every single one of them.

That line of thought certainly won't win ISIS any new recruits, right?

If America never sent a single person to any country ever the world would literally be utopia. Every single bad thing that happens on this gay earth can be backtraced to Amurican Imperialism.

Well, the last positive intervention was against the Nazis. Maybe you could count Afghanistan had it just been an air operation against Al-Qaeda training camps.

Probably.

straw0man doesn't seem to understand that the protests are not solely about Michael Brown's death--that was merely the trigger. However, I wouldn't understand a reactionary troglodyte like him to understand the concept of things having root causes.

What's absurd about this? Cuba is by every measure massively improved due to the PCC's leadership--the HP-ness coming from the persecution of left-wing dissenters and the bureaucratic command economy. There is also a lot of internal democracy within the party, though this is plagued by very corrupt elements of the bureaucracy.

straw0man continues to be the forum's most consistent apologist for fascism.

Newark doesn't border NYC or the Hudson River.

Some of the least objectionable postwar suburbs in America.  FC.

Rich bureaucrat hive, HC

Montco is majority-minority.

Rich bureaucrats don't have to be white.

I will have the results of this poll on hand next time someone claims that the Atlas Forum is left wing.

Most of Atlas is under the very misguided impression that Teddy Roosevelt was some kind of leftist.
