    That being said, not every country's tax money is being spent as effectively here. I go to Germany every now and then for business, and it was shocking to me, how in some towns there infrastructure and public transportation is quite mediocre. In the Netherlands, you could go to any town, the...

    I can't say that either haha. Its harder to accept when like me, you haven't had the benefit of a world class education almost for free( i had to pay huge tuition fees as an international student), but at the same time, i can see how it creates a fully functioning society, where at least...

    I'm going to try to be fair here. I think if you're a high achieving person, the ceiling (and potential earning power) is higher in the US, so i can understand the appeal there. For the rest of the 95 percenters, day by day i do not understand the appeal of the US over other (developed)...

    I think because of that awkward stutter he does for penalties, whenever he misses it looks ten times worse. But why does that matter? the aim of a penalty technique is to score as many as possible. So if it's a good or bad technique should depend on how successful his conversion rate is...

    Russia - Ukraine Conflict 2022

    Haven't followed Turkey in a while. Do you think they're capable of holding a fair, honest and transparent election? If they do, and it doesn't turn out in Erdogan's favor how will that turn out? I somehow don't see him just accepting defeat with all the power he's amassed over the past years.

    Fuck Saddam. Tbh I am not sure the war on Iraq was good for Iraqi people. Its hard for me to accept all the civilian casualties caused by American aggression also. But, seeing Saddam and his murderous genocidal cronies being rounded up like that, and seeing his two sadistic sons get what they...

    Biggest waste of a talent in football

    Russia - Ukraine Conflict 2022

    Exactly. Its not, and especially when it comes to foreign policy, and power relations, they may be as ruthless as anyone else. But thats where the comparison ends. As soon as you start looking at how states treat their citizens, to even begin to compare is delusional. No, the west is vastly...
