    The ECB institution is fine, or at least was how initially envisioned. But handing the reign over to some ex Goldman Sachs White Boys Club member (Draghi) who then proceeded to feed his ex Goldman Sachs friends all across all financial institutions, with support from the same lot in EU country administrations with cheap money for even more ruthless speculation, is the real culprit here.

    Careful, conservatives only have one joke and by appropriating it you might make them upset.
    Look, the wages you withheld from the workmen who mowed your fields are crying out against you. The cries of the harvesters have reached the ears of the Lord of Hosts. You have lived on earth in luxury and self-indulgence. You have fattened yourselves for slaughter.

    Can i still safely assume that Trump is made of teflon in the US? Giuliani is the fall guy for anything that nearly sticks? Imagine Clinton was forced, in office to pay a $2mil personal fine for using charity status to misappropriate funds, i cant even.

    Or has America woke up yet to their president blatantly disregarding democratic process in favor of gansterism?

    Right wing politics in modern capitalism is entirely teflon coated. They directly pander to the interests of the media industry to make sure nothing sticks.

    Also the boomer generation riding the gravy train is something that specifically is an American phenomenon and the "ok boomer" really doesn't apply anywhere else. Being born in the 60ies in an environment that was still recovering after the massive economic setbacks from the aftermath of ww2. We still had rationing on certain goods into 1960.

    Just my cents on that.

    There are definitely huge generational advantages for that age group in the UK too.

    Well maybe you should have tried harder to win the cold war so you can have your own entitled generation pulling the ladder of opportunity up behind them.

    In the us they have this weird hate for the state.
    They see Trump dismantling and tearing it down, they will defend him as long as he is "draining the swamp".
    Republicans are defending him, as long as he is promoting their agenda.

    Cracks are forming in his wall of defenders. Next few weeks will be interesting.

    Anyone that wants "smaller government" and all that other conservative nonsense, is basically saying " I hate where I live, I hate my form of government, and the way of life my country enjoys, and I want to destroy the country, our way of life, and I want to harm all the people living in the country with me..."

    And we need to start treating them like the domestic enemies they are...

    no, the construction of the entire eurozone is unsound.

    the generation that where born the early-mid 60's are literately going to drive the gravy train off the god damned cliff and up the retirement age to 75-80 before they check out.



    see that bulge ? it's skewing the entire voting demographic something fierce, see that 30-34 dip ? yea, that's my age group, how wonderful life is, funny how the ladder seems to get its rungs removed as i start hitting the points where i need em.

    Yet funnily you never had any trouble doing any of that yourself. Only now it's an issue when people dare use it back at your 'superior' ass.

    While technically true I think that's disingenuous since that applies to the left wing politics too. Rather I agree with the statement but I disagree that the media industry is the one pandered to, and that the media panders to the politicians (and often are one and the same). There's no separating the media from the ruling class since it's their primary toolkit to intimidate and keep power.

    Capitalism but with female billionaires or gay soldiers or black policemen isn't left wing.
