The reason Communism failed even though the idea by Karl Marx was noble idea but essentially humans are greedy by nature. China and other so-called Socialist states are the farthest thing from Communism as the elite keep all the wealth while the rest of the population suffers. In China the disparity between rural and urban is huge so dispels the myth of social equality.In essence Communism is Imperalism in Christmas wrapping paper.

Sure in Europe we have some social features in our lives but the US is founded on ideals of individualism when it comes to personal wealth and you get what you work for.

We saw in recent election in Florida where the Republicans were successfully able to portray the Democratic policies as Communism even though they would be considered social lite in Europe, these policies appeal the young entitlement generation but is a red flag to Republicans. The gulf of ideals gets wider by the day and as long as this happens the situation is hopeless but if Biden can resist the BLM/ self entitled wing of his party then some harmony might break out.
I agree but don't think he has time. He had it when campaigning but couldn't mention this even if he wanted. I don't think he wanted, either.

You need to take off you 30-years-ago spectacles. Crate-raised veal is illegal in most countries these days, and so-called "rose" veal, identified as such to reassure the customer that the calf has not been caged, is readily available in the UK these days.

There;s still work to do there, with people such as you still thinking that veal is evil, but it's nothing like as bad as it used to be.
I never said what I support one way or the other, I have eaten veal here on occasions. I also said it is difficult to find, not that it is impossible. I'm also aware veal crates were banned in the UK while I stil lived there.

I did quickly check on Tesco and Sainsburys Online both of whom do not have it. That covers a decent chunk of the market.

Re: Will Biden be a good President?

Just a few minutes to go to the official inauguration of Joe Biden as the 46th President of the United States of America. Stirring scenes despite the snow falling lightly in Washington DC.

Live on CNN and probably every American news channel.

Clearly less people there than 4 years ago. Disgraceful.

My understanding is that Biden/Harris deliberately organized a "low key" event given COVID.

Re: Will Biden be a good President?

Once again, listen to Biden talking. This is not a confused, addled, demented old man. This is an intelligent, motivated, impassioned old man.

I wish Biden the best of luck. I think he'll need it to repair the damage done to the US over the last four years.

This.

And the team he has announced so far looks extremely solid, smart, experienced and competent.

I am going to miss the footage of the cabinet meetings though where the bootlickers congratulate the president on the size of his brain.

Wow, Garth Brooks has put on a lot of lockdown weight! He'll be looking forward to the pandemic being over.

By the Democrat-majority House?

Anyway: for what? You need to be suspected of a crime to be impeached.

QAnon nutjob Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene claimed a few days ago that she plans to introduce articles of impeachment tomorrow for abuse of power.

Colluding with the Ruskis to steal the election?

Kissing the EU's ass?

Making China Great Again?

Clearly, 2021 is looking to out-do 2020!
