Re: Favorite liquer/s ...

Have you been ill for the past three years... :D (On a serious note, I hope not). Unfortunately yes. While I come from beer country (beer is cheaper than water or any non-alcoholic drink in almost all restaurants/bars over here) I never liked it. I had been a wine connoisseur for past 15 years.

Re: EU seems to be in danger...

RT is an example for a bad source of information that takes news with a kernel of truth and then twists and spins it to create propaganda. And why it is so successful ? Because it is response to what "good" sources do (for instance local public tv and radio), they take real news but censors some (t...

Re: EU seems to be in danger...

Radicalization is a much bigger problem than immigration. But the naive EU way of immigration rules (anyone who claim to be in need is accepted without any documents or false documents) supports it, especially if EU apparently can't handle the radicalization because of political corectness.

Especially these attacks with a knife are, again statistically, specific to people related to the Islam roots. It isn't an organized terrorism, it is their default hate of the western culture in general. How comes there weren't so many of them five or more years ago?

Unfortunately the alternative is not that much better and is getting worse.
