    U.S. Politics: 5.7 Billion Problems But The House Ain't One

    Now Pelosi will have to let him give the SOU address, right?

    US Politics: Shutbound & Down

    Americans use that term differently, I believe. As in, worthless person, lowlife...

    US Politics: Shutbound & Down

    The first one is a quote from this musical: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Threepenny_Opera - "The Ballad of Mack the Knife"

    regarding AOC: https://www.theonion.com/fox-news-debuts-premium-channel-for-24-hour-coverage-of-1831814505 ETA: Weird. Just a couple of days ago, I looked up what had become of some of the actors of the mini series Holocaust. Of course I knew Wood, but I was sorry to read about his political views. The guy who played Dorf seems to hold similar opinions.

    That's a very interesting theory, even though I hope it's wrong (I'm not into Divine leadership).

    No wolf statues with either Jon's or Arya's statue... Dire-what? :(

    Jorah also touched Tyrion right after he got infecte, and at the time I expected Tyrion to get the disease... So I think we can safely assume that Jorah didn't infect others just by touching them.

    Most importantly, those reforms that incited the French protests (tax cuts for the super rich, amongst others) have already been done here ages ago, and widely promoted, er, accepted as necessary and "alternativlos" (without alternative).

    German politics xth attempt

    I'm afraid Merz threatened to remain active within the party, too... You know, I pondered this a lot: How it would probably be better for the SPD (I won't call them 'the left') and worse for the AfD if Merz (or Spahn) had won. I believe both would be true, but the effects would be smaller than predicted. Some who voted AfD would return to the CDU. Because they would now cover part of their politics. How is that better, apart from the fact that those AfD people are even more unpleasant... Same with the SPD: They would gain some votes back and muddle along, as they always do. They will pretend to be progressive and willing to change as long as they a) fear the next elections or (even more) b) if they are relegated to opposition (not that they'd ever leave government voluntarily, Merz or not). They will refuse to even discuss center-left coalitions whenever they are possible. And look what they did the last time they were in charge... Yeah, I'm a pessimist.

    Well, you international folk better start practising pronouncing this name: Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer. (Just elected CDU party leader and very likely next chancellor.) https://www.theguardian.com/world/2018/dec/07/annegret-kramp-karrenbauer-elected-merkels-successor-as-christian-democrat-leader On a strictly soap opera level, I enjoyed this fight and (again, ignoring their politics) the best person won. Or, well, the least unpleasant personality won.

    Did you know that there was still one social democrat in the SPD? Well, he left. Good for him. http://taz.de/SPD-Abgeordneter-Buelow-hat-genug/!5550746/ Note how the auther calls his "having become more and more isolated" , "preferring to play solo"...

    Hmmm... truly flipping the story on its head... AOTD wins. We get shown past events from their perspective, and their actions totally make sense.

    I stand corrected with regards to Hessen.
