A problem with increased taxes is that it hurts the less priviledged the most. But that is a political problem. I often think back to the early 1990s when I started to travel a lot.

Who is surprised about these findings? Everybody have known this from the beginning. One reason Russia will not own up to these facts is probably because they then have to admit that regular Russian forces have invaded Ukraine and are actively and illegally participating in combat against Ukrainian ...Jump to post

Right now there are 18, yes 18 threads about Trump on the first page of the non aviation forum. Apparently some people feel very virtuos when they can say something negative about Trump.

In the northern province of Groningen, the Netherlands, natural gas has been extracted since 1959 or so. It has "earned" the Dutch state billions.

Well, the UK is trying.

Aside from over 100 Soviet 'diplomats' being expelled just from the UK in 1971, this is I think the largest mass expulsion of 'diplomatic' staff in history?

Mercedes looks unbeatable again this year, so it should come as no surprise when Hamilton becomes world champion yet again.

Europe doesn't need a replacement for Russian oil, it needs a replacement for Russian gas. This is a crucial point.
