  1. You are correct, most Muslims in Europe do not favor sharia law. The opposite is true for most countries with a higher % of Muslim people: http://www.pewforum.org/2013/04/30/the-worlds-muslims-religion-politics-society-overview/
  2. Beat It I'm Madonna

    it's from the same remixer who did this one: and this:
  3. Everything is always clear to the sectarian know-it-alls who smugly see the world in black and white, who divide it in bad guys and good guys.
  4. I don't care about big names, I care about issues, and issues should spark outrage, not individual statements (especially those coming from people who have pretty much nothing to do with the issues at hand). The Goren case is not a local case, it is a grave moral issue, that has not been properly reported by world media and that has remained mostly unadressed by the left. Criticising Lagerfeld is fine, but leaping from the bloated statement of this one person to a critique of the general political and ideological situation is highly suspicious as to motive.
  5. Wow, people sure like to get outraged these days. Let's just pretend there's no problem with the left in Germany, it's all the right's fault. It's more outrageous what some washed up designer has to say on tv for 2 seconds than the gang rape of politician Selin Goren, who lied to the police about her rapists' identity in order not to offend the public and be seen as racist. Fucked up times indeed!
  6. Do College Kids Know 80s Music...

    Dolly Parton? Oh yeah, she guest spotted on Hanna Montana.
  7. Trump / US politics thread 🚽

    It's comedy gold.
  8. The outcry from this tag of businesswoman seem to emerge from a perception of business success as something to hide, something morally unclean, etc. I see Madonna as a Renaissance-woman of the XXth century. She is a creative entrepreneur, investing her energies in a variety of fields that are all part of pop culture, including business. Capitalism is what structures all of pop culture and makes it possible. It is also an art form, and she excells at it as she does in other modern art forms. If some people or journalists use the idea as something degrading or to diminish M's artistic contribution, it's because they have no actual idea of what art was in the XXth century nor any idea of the history of art.
  9. MADONNA REWIND: Esther on The View

    I hated how she was so dismissive of her early — world-changing and artistically brilliant — career in that "lady" phase... Glad she's over that.
  10. This is all true. I do hope she'll move on from EDM producers next time. I understand why she did it, but that constipated sound is over now.
  11. 28 years ago the Berlin Wall was no more...

    One of the great symbolic and humanist moments of the 20th century. Do millenials even know about it?
  12. Trump / US politics thread 🚽

    Exactly. Actual belief in one's principles and ideas goes a long way. Obama had already exposed Clinton's doubletalk during the 2008 primaries. The recent wins for the Dems stem from grassroots liberal efforts, and the party has to get its head around that they can't just take for granted that they'll win, push away criticism and live in a bubble like the top-down approach which failed them. It has to be the other way around. In this video, at 1:16, you can see why the party is as it is now:
  13. Trump / US politics thread 🚽

    Maybe so but I think most people can see Sanders' trustworthy and consistent character (unlike Clinton), which is incredibly important, plus the general population is in favor of his ideas.
  14. Trump / US politics thread 🚽

    FYI: Favorable views of the Democratic Party have dropped to their lowest mark in more than a quarter century of polling, ... Only 37% of Americans have a favorable opinion of Democrats, down from 44% in March of this year. A majority, 54%, have an unfavorable view, matching their highest mark in polls from CNN and SSRS, CNN/ORC and CNN/USA Today/Gallup stretching back to 1992. http://www.cnn.com/2017/11/07/politics/cnn-poll-republicans-democrats-taxes/index.html And: Bernie Sanders is the most popular politician in America, poll finds http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/americas/us-politics/bernie-sanders-most-popular-politician-poll-trump-favorability-a7913306.html I hope he runs again...
  15. Trump / US politics thread 🚽

    Instead of wasting time and money on such nonsense both Democrats and Republicans should regroup and prepare themselves for the next election with new interesting and YOUNGER candidates with fresh IDEAS for a change.
  16. Does M have money off-shore?

    Obviously, if the elected officials actually had more morality than less, and if they actually worked to benefit society instead of themselves and their peers, populations would actually believe in this system of tax/public service, which they do not because of pervading corruption. And of course this was always so, the historian Ibn Khaldun described how empires have in common the pacification of a population and its imposition (literally). The endurance of social ills has not stopped humanity from trying to overcome them though. And here too, everyone tries to evade paying taxes.
  17. Does M have money off-shore?

    I understand what you mean, but I'm also saying there's a double standard here. If you are rich enough to hide money off-shore, you get excused, but if a lower class citizen decides not to pay taxes, they'll come for him and fine or jail him. People should be free to do how they please with their money, but to me claiming social justice and leftist values while garnishing foreign bank accounts à l'abri from the taxman is just as hypocritical as secretly-gay Republicans fomenting anti-gay legislation.
  18. Does M have money off-shore?

    Quite right. I find this is the same psychological imperative at work with people who obsessively collect objects, whatever they are (or worse, hoarders). A fear of death.
  19. Does M have money off-shore?

    I know this is how it goes, but I'm just saying it is hypocritical for one to hide fortunes out while claiming social justice (most especially politicians; not so much celebrities, who are notoriously flaky, and no one expects grand moral stamina from celebrities).
  20. Does M have money off-shore?

    That's mostly true, but especially in the US where to win an election you need hundreds of millions of dollars and ties to huge corporate and financial powers that insures you won't budge on socially sensible issues (and never take the side of Joe Blow).
  21. Does M have money off-shore?

    Well then why would anyone pay taxes if it's so useless? If putting billions of dollars more into government hands will not change anything and just preserve the statu quo, then diminishing the amount available to government will also preserve the statu quo and change nothing.
  22. This is disgusting, he threw her down the stairs, that monster!
