Just because he will reach out to countries that the US has screwed over doesn't mean he's not right-wing.

...so presumably my name is being dropped in the pursuit of political capital, or...?

Why would mentioning your name gain anyone political capital?  This attack doesn't even make sense on it's own terms (although I do like how even you aren't disputing the substance of the OP).

You're implying I'm against fixing the game. Putting me and certain others on one side of the equation is a rallying cry for some; a way to accrue political capital for a cause. I haven't weighed in because it's an absolute custerfluck and people have knee-jerked historically against what I say and do on matters like these. Also, including that bolded part admits what you were trying to do here (otherwise, it wouldn't be a concern of yours worth noting) - you're so bad at this!

You are against fixing the game though.  Once again, regarding the bolded part, your attack/smear doesn't even make sense.  So in your mind, pointing out that you didn't even bother to dispute the point I made means...err...what exactly?

No, I'm not. I've been trying to fix it for years now, when many said it wasn't necessary and many others wanted to haggle over the most asinine of details. As far as I'm concerned, this recent dialogue is vindication! And again: you wouldn't have bothered to point out what I bolded (even if it's wrong, you thought you were making some clever point) if that's not what you were trying to paint by making this thread in the first place. You wanted to say "haha look, Griffin doesn't agree!". Fail. And it makes absolute sense.

Oh, and heads-up: the cool kids aren't going to like you any more for doing this.

If we want to classify Vladimir Putin in the left-right scale, we should consider him a right-wing, both on economic and social issues.

But on foreign policy, he is close to Raul Castro, Maduro and Tsipras.

You know, I was really hoping I wouldn't have a competitive primary, and then the only other West Virginian on Atlas forum comes along and decides to play as Bill Gates. Tongue

This should be fun.

He resigned because game theory people.

That's what his statement seemed to imply. Of course it's nonsense, but it's certainly a nice change from the "spend more time with my family" your people are so fond of employing.

I don't actually see the point in firing him, personally. To me it appears painfully clear that it is all over now, and that everyone is playing along with some pointless charade where all sides apparently pretend (or have deluded themselves into thinking) that some kind of agreement is possible.

The Greeks ought to spend every available minute working towards the reintroduction of the drachma. The Europeans ought to spend their time preparing for Grexit. Apparently, however, they all seem to be seeing something I don't.

Varoufakis will, of course, be all right. He'll sell a lot more copies of his book, write another, probably try to challenge Piketty for the title of "Most talked-about leftwing economist", get a column in some paper- the Times, perhaps, go on the conference circuit, and end up with a cushy visiting professorship somewhere. None of which, of course, will pay in drachmae. Probably won't do too many paid talks, though- neither the left-wing nor the iconoclastic thing to do.

Christie and Kasich have a better chance than people say they do.

They'd be dumb not to be at all concerned.

This year's Huntsman. He's got a ton going for him, but he has no chance of winning.

How dare you compare this fiend to Huntsman.
