    Re: 10 years at TWC

    Checking in after a long while. Sad to see the Curia lose its own subsection of the forum. I suppose that's been the direction of the last decade.

    Anyway, what's up y'all?
  2. Re: Macedonia approves constitutional amendment to change country's name to Republic of North Macedonia

    I'd say so, yes. The region of Macedonia has such a rich history of demographic and cultural change. Macedonia is of course not alone in this respect, but this region is perhaps more complex than...

  5. Re: Macedonia approves constitutional amendment to change country's name to Republic of North Macedonia

    Speaking about ethnic "continuity" in the Balkans is a risky proposition and you should be careful playing this game. I always like to use the example of Pella, which was the capital of ancient...
  6. Re: Macedonia approves constitutional amendment to change country's name to Republic of North Macedonia

    It's a shame that Greece made this an issue to begin with, but at least it is over.



    Greek and Macedonian nationalists both hate this deal. Which means it's a good deal.
  7. Macedonia approves constitutional amendment to change country's name to Republic of North Macedonia

    BBC | NPR | NYT | MKD.mk | Ekathimerini

    Macedonian parliament has ratified constitutional changes that will change the name of the country to the "Republic of North Macedonia." This is the most...

    Re: Macedonia Naming Dispute: Solved?

    I really dislike boycott campaigns in general. To me, boycotting an election or referendum implies that you think your opinion is in the minority and your only defense is to delegitimize the entire...

    Re: Nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to Supreme Court

    I was shocked by Kavanaugh's testimony... he was openly partisan, unprofessional, and lying through his teeth about his past. Not what I would expect from a high judge. Even Trump was convinced of...

    Re: Macedonia Naming Dispute: Solved?

    I will vote yes tomorrow. ;)

    Big question of the referendum is if turnout exceeds 50%. I think it'll be successful (there's really no good reason to vote against the name change), but I wouldn't...
  13. Re: The Putin - Trump Controversy: Here to Stay-Links between Trump and Russia are being officially investigated by the FBI

    It is worth mentioning that he accepted a plea agreement, which implies that Mueller had more dirt on him than just the one charge that Papadopoulos pled guilty to (based on the unsealed documents,...
  14. Re: The Putin - Trump Controversy: Here to Stay-Links between Trump and Russia are being officially investigated by the FBI

    Have you read Papadopoulos' Statement of Offense? It actually contains an unnamed individual who is literally termed "High-Ranking Campaign Official." A second high-ranking official is mentioned in...
  15. Re: The Putin - Trump Controversy: Here to Stay-Links between Trump and Russia are being officially investigated by the FBI

    That's a puzzling reaction to an investigation that appears to be entering a new, much more serious phase.
  16. Re: The Putin - Trump Controversy: Here to Stay-Links between Trump and Russia are being officially investigated by the FBI

    He was arrested in July. He accepted a plea deal earlier this month. This was unsealed today, which is why it is news now.

    He was an advisor from March 2016 til the end of the campaign, which...
  17. Re: The Putin - Trump Controversy: Here to Stay-Links between Trump and Russia are being officially investigated by the FBI

    Honestly, Manafort should have been the free spot in the middle. This indictment was a no-brainer. Just the fact that he was well-connected in Yanukovych's Ukraine tells it all.

    And yet, the...

  21. Re: Charlottesville : Car runs into crowed amid violence at planned far-right protest - Discussion

    That's a stupid offhand remark by Blitzer, but the rest of the segment makes a good point. The use of vehicles as a weapon to target large groups of people is definitely a worrying trend, and...
  22. Re: Charlottesville : Car runs into crowed amid violence at planned far-right protest - Discussion

    Violence should not be used at these or any protests, but keep in mind that Nazis as a group don't attract much sympathy, which is why many don't care when they get whacked.



    This guy...
  23. Re: Charlottesville : Car runs into crowed amid violence at planned far-right protest - Discussion

    To be strictly accurate, it was 1808, and it wasn't the Constitution itself that banned it, but rather a federal law. The relevant clause of the Constitution actually barred any consideration of a...
  24. Re: Charlottesville : Car runs into crowed amid violence at planned far-right protest - Discussion

    Based on Jackson's reaction to secessionist sentiment in South Carolina, the South is really lucky that Jackson wasn't president in the 1860s. Mr. Jackson didn't take kindly to traitors.
  25. Re: Charlottesville : Car runs into crowed amid violence at planned far-right protest - Discussion

    The Confederate battle flag and the many monuments erected during the Jim Crow era certainly comprise an integral part of history - eras where the white South attempted to reassert social control...
  26. Re: Charlottesville : Car runs into crowed amid violence at planned far-right protest - Discussion

    It's not a monument, but it's also worth pointing out that the Confederate battle flag returned to popular use in the 1950s as a symbol of opposition to the Civil Rights movement. Culture.

    This isn't a new and sudden phenomenon. The movement to remove these statues started in 2015, after a racist terrorist shot up a black church in Charleston, SC (wonderful city, by the way, highly...

    Re: Charlottesville : Car runs into crowed amid violence at planned far-right protest - Discussion

    Would you like to read primary sources from Confederate leaders about the rationale for their secession? Spoiler alert: slavery figures prominently.



    This is perhaps venturing too close to VV...
  31. Re: Charlottesville : Car runs into crowed amid violence at planned far-right protest - Discussion

    These statues were mostly commissioned during the Jim Crow era (~1910s-1930s). They represent the efforts of Southerners to minimize African-Americans in society and romanticize the "Lost Cause" long...

    A lot of Americans stick their heads in the sand when it comes to the racist and traitorous legacy of the CSA, but seeing neo-Nazis and white nationalists so brazenly cling to Confederate symbols is...
  33. Re: Charlottesville : Car runs into crowed amid violence at planned far-right protest - Discussion

    Trump's press conference earlier was supposed to be about infrastructure, but he ranted about "both sides" again. White House staff were caught by surprise, and nothing is more telling than this...
  34. Re: Charlottesville : Car runs into crowed amid violence at planned far-right protest - Discussion

    Well, excuse what I said here. Trump just had a bit of a meltdown where he reaffirmed his initial statement in response to this incident and compared George Washington to Confederate generals.
  35. Re: Charlottesville : Car runs into crowed amid violence at planned far-right protest - Discussion

    First impressions are everything. If that was his initial reaction, he would have won some brownie points. Instead, his approval ratings have taken another hit. Even more disappointing is that Trump...
  36. Re: Charlottesville : Car runs into crowed amid violence at planned far-right protest - Discussion

    I just object to Lee being described as fighting for "states' rights." I think that notion has contributed to the screwed up view of the CSA that some Americans hold today. You seem to recognize...

    Trump really botched his response to this. I don't know how he managed to do so, because this is almost free points for a president. A neo-nazi rally where one of the participants decided to go full...
