Brilliant! You bring so much to the discussion.
not my fault you don't like the fact that Europe owes us their vert existence.
"Sorry I missed that" No problem, you're forgiven.
Nothing dubious, everything factual. I'm almost starting to like you. Almost.
Months You guys freezing your ass off up there?
Germany gets 40% of its energy from coal a true beacon of renewable energy you can't see through the smog...
So the European countries operate nearly 200 nuclear power plants
@Peyton00 advertising his IQ... still funny.
The Euro's the left so fawns over has nearly 200 active nuclear plants... where is the outrage?
Lol, double ought strikes again.
funny he ignored the previous guilty ones.. politically motivated?? yup.
We've had an incredible rise in the stock market since the election and really do need a correction. The DJones is now over 25/K with no end in site. A 10% - 20% correction should be expected. Corrections do spawn new investment opportunities. Hopefully you're fully invested. Be wary of advice from some economists (including wannabe economists that roam the WFF). Here's just three:
"It really does now look like President Donald J. Trump, and markets are plunging. When might we expect them to recover? We are very probably looking at a global recession, with no end in sight." Paul Krugman of the New York Times, the day after the election."
"If Trump wins we should expect a big markdown in expected future earnings for a wide range of stocks – and a likely crash in the broader market." Eric Zitzewitz, former economist with the International Monetary Fund, November 2016."
"Under Trump, I would expect a protracted recession to begin within 18 months. The damage would be felt far beyond the United States." Larry Summers, former chief economist to Bill Clinton and Barack Obama, June 2016."
Damn that Obama, taking a financial crisis and then making the economy too good for Trumpsterfire to inherit. Thank god trump is selling our environmental soul even if it doesn’t help. I’m sure the financial institutions regulation roll backs will prevent the economy from doing too good again.
Why are they mutually exclusive though? We can't invest in clean energy without sacrificing national security?
No one "allowed" it, we fought and won wars to establish ourselves in that position. Helping the French in SE Asia was about fighting communism as far as I can recall. And I'm not sure the French were the target of what I was talking about, and it definitely isn't about colonialsim. Nazi Germany taking over Europe wasn't colonialsim and that's what we intended to prevent. But this is off topic and doesn't really matter because we can't change the past. We are where we are now, but where will we go from here?
Laughable? How so? He provided data; you provided a single anecdote. In case you don't understand how scoring works, you lose.
Sorry, the second time, it is defenSe
