Iow, Republic supports a constitutional monarchy. Three cheers for Republic, whoever or whatever they are!   ;D

Serious, Flo', I wouldn't make that interpretation at any of the meetings.  They'd do you a right treat, mate!   >:D

The Germans, who make doctrines out of everything, deal with music learnedly; the Italians, being voluptuous, seek in it lively, though fleeting, sensations; the French, more vain than perceptive, manage to speak of it wittily; and the English pay for it . . . - Stendhal

Although I don't participate in the political threads, I voted no. I do read them. I mean, how else am I to know whom to hate?  ;)

the phone rings and somebody says,
"hey, they made a movie about
Mahler, you ought to go see it.
he was as f*cked-up as you are."

Somehow I never got to listen to any Monty Python. I imagine I miss a lot.

But seriously, that Supreme executive power derives from a mandate from the masses could have been subscribed by any number of modern dictators. Ceaușescu, for instance, always claimed he was ruling on behalf of, and for, the working class which mandated him to do so at each and every nationwide congress the Communist Party held periodically.  ;D

If I hadn't already known, I would have said Karl Marx...

Oh, I'm sure violence is the only way they could defend their incoherent, self-contradictory doctrine.  ;D

The commentator pointed to the fixation as a 'quality' with Trump, that somehow showed a genius aspect of him - seeing that opening for getting such attention.

Trump surely is a genius getting attention, but he is talented in completely wrongs things for a president while being astonishly weak at things important for a leader. As I have said for years, Trump's place is in the WWE wrestling ring feuding with Vince McMahon.

Okay, I’m afraid we’re getting off topic and many of you guys are talking about politics when there are threads dedicated to such discussion. It looks like the majority of members here don’t mind political threads, so with that vote in mind, I’m now locking this thread.
