    With or without religion, you would have good people doing good things and evil people doing evil things. But for good people to do evil things, that takes religion.

      Vikings only went to America because of the food! It's fact because I said so, and I agree. Anybody disagreeing has no idea what he's talking about.

        I love these dumb arguments. “Chlorine doesn’t work as a disinfectant!” Which is why the EU allows it to be used as a disinfectant on literally thousands upon thousands of different types of food stuff, right? And also allowed it up until 2008 on chicken just like in the US but as soon as the Great Recession hit and EU producers were struggling to compete against superior, safer, and cheaper US chicken... Well, only then did they invent an excuse for their obvious anti-consumer protectionism.

          If they want to protect their chickens that's their business.

            Do you plan to backup your claims about food quality/chicken/eggs/whatever in the US and/or the EU in the near future? That would be something new

              If you really care about not getting sick from eating chickens ... or taking good care of chickens ... don't eat chickens. Problem solved!

                What's the matter... you chicken?

              Also, this will likely prevent them chickens from launching organized revenge-eatings of humans.

                So hey, it looks like there's an actual Brexit deal.
                Boris is very excited.

                    I have so many unanswered questions.

                    1) Will Scotland actually leave the UK and seek to rejoin the EU? Or is this just empty rhetoric? Surveys seem to favor rejoining the EU.

                    2) What happens to all the British ex-pats in Spain and Portugal? Losing EU membership status has got to hurt them

                    3) Where the f is MOBIUS ?

                      1) Nope. About 60% support union and it is going to go up from there. Not that Scotland could economically survive without the rest of the UK.

                      2) The ones who live there filed for residency over the last four years..

                      3) Mobile went kind of crazy with TDS. I hardly see him even on Facebook these days.

                          It seems to be all over the place depending g upon wording. Some somehow 58% against, some show 52% for, but it doesn't matter because no vote will be allowed any time soon and after things settle in after Brexit the anxiety will decrease.

                            Odds are 50% that there will be another referendum. It's a coin toss at this point.

                              The Brexit deal agreed looks a bit of a bust - still better than nothing but not exactly somethign to cheer about. The UK is a net exporter of services, and a net importer of goods. This Brexit deal is reasonable for goods as it is tariff free, albeit contrary to Boris Johnson's claims, not free of non-tariff barriers (either he doesn't understand what that means, doesn't understand his deal or just doesn't care enough to check his claims). It does next to nothing for services - qualifications are not recognised, employees can't work across borders, there is no financial passporting.

                              Net result, the EU gets more out of this deal than the UK. All because Boris was pointlessly focussed on fish rather than the financial and insurance markets.

                                I like fish. And shellfish. I'm fairly sure Canada is a net exporter of seafood. I also like fishnets.
