PostUS Elections 2016 (Eugenio Battaglia, Italy, 11/07/14 7:51 am)
Re: Randy Black's post of 7 November.
Looking at the heart of the Empire from the outskirts in Savona, the first impression on the future presidential contest is damn scary. The Republicans, but also Hillary Netanyahu, do not promise anything good.
JE comments: Bill Clinton, as well as Sara Ben-Artzi Netanyahu (just checked, and she's the third Mrs. N) might have a thing to say about this. What really fascinates me in this remark from Eugenio Battaglia is the perception that Hillary is so "intimate" with Israel. Hillary sentiment in the US, both pro and contra, tends to focus on other issues.
So--should we begin discussing the likelihood of Hillary '16, or give it another six months of rest?
US Elections 2016; Catalonia Referendum 9 November
(Enrique Torner, USA
11/08/14 3:03 AM)
Eugenio Battaglia (7 November) stated that the next US presidential elections are scary. I agree with this to a certain degree, though not with Eugenio's political ideology.
However, what I'm really scared about right now is what's going to happen in Catalonia tomorrow (November 9th), the "referendum" day. Are they really going to vote? And, more importantly, if they vote, what's the Spanish government going to do? Is there going to be violence? Another civil war? Check this news:
JE comments: Yes, tomorrow is the much-anticipated November 9th. We've been talking about the Catalonian referendum for well over a year.
As far as I can tell, the vote will go on as planned. It is a high-stakes game, but another Civil War? I'm confident that level heads will prevail.
