To you.

But you have a very low level of intellect so...ya...there's that.

So again, you've bailed on actually having a substantive discussion on the topic and moved to calling people dumb. 

This, quite frankly, shows your limited level of intellect. 

If the discussion gets too complicated for you, you start calling people dumb. ?

So European farmers complaining about rising prices and protesting proves what, exactly?  That the EURO is falling apart, or that people think it's useless?     

Here's an actual source that gives a picture of popular support for the EU, from the same place you cited:

Highest in 15 years!

There is no "substantive" discussion with you. When ur proven wrong...you been owned. Happens to everyone.

Grown-ups admit it and move on.

You? Not so much, eh?

I'm the dim-wit, he says, when the article he linked has this in the first line:

"Oct 19 (Reuters) - European countries are facing more strikes and protests due to high energy prices and mounting costs of living. Here are details of some industrial actions and demonstrations."

https://www.reuters.com/world/europe/strikes-protests-europe-over-cost-living-pay-2022-10-18/

 

Nationalist: "There is no "substantive" discussion with you. When ur proven wrong...you been owned. Happens to everyone."

What's your response to the above?  This would normally be embarrassing, but you're so aggressively clueless and deluded I've no doubt this will fly over your head.  ??

Where, pray-tell, have I been proven wrong? 

Trump has praised Putin many MANY! times. And it's almost certainly why the likes of you can't get enough of the guy and cheer on his terror bombing of civilians.

Putin's Game Plan Predicted by John McCain in Resurfaced 2014 Clip
 

 

A warning issued by the late U.S. Senator John McCain—nearly a decade ago—about Vladimir Putin's intentions in Ukraine has gone viral.

The clip shows the former GOP lawmaker for Arizona and one-time Republican presidential nominee taking a swipe at American reluctance to help Ukraine for fear of provoking the Russian leader.

"There's nothing that provokes Vladimir Putin more than weakness," he told the BBC program on September 10, 2014, over six months after Russia had illegally annexed Crimea from Ukraine.

McCain told the BBC that Putin's strategy was to "separate eastern Ukraine" and "perhaps" create a land bridge between Russia and Crimea as he criticized the lack of weapons given to Kyiv.

Putin's Hopes for a Harsh Winter Melt Away Across Europe
 

….

Russia has been accused of using energy as a weapon and the delivery of oil and gas—its largest exports—was expected to be used to weaken the continent's resolve.

In August, Germany said Moscow was driving up prices when state-owned firm Gazprom, after reducing flows of gas via the Nord Stream 1 pipeline, then temporarily halted supplies of the fuel that the pipeline delivers to western Europe.

 

But Putin's hopes to bend a shivering Europe to his will may have been scuppered, in the short term at least, because of unseasonably warm weather, with average temperatures up to 20 degrees Celsius warmer than normal.

"Putin had bad luck this year, it's really warm in Europe," said energy and geopolitical analyst Thomas O'Donnell.

…."His leverage is mainly in the short term, and he decided to use it before he loses it," he told Newsweek. "Basically, he's got to pray for bad weather."

It's not just the climate that has intervened. EU co-operation to reduce gas demand and develop new facilities for Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) have also been essential, with imports of the fuel surging, especially from the U.S. and Qatar.

EU industry has reduced its consumption by more than a fifth without significantly cutting output, according to Henning Gloystein, director of energy, climate and resources at the political risk consultancy Eurasia Group.

Households have also reduced their gas consumption, aided by mild weather and incentivized by high costs and public campaigns asking for restraint.

 

"It means Mr. Putin's plans to sow discord in the EU by driving up prices and causing potential shortages have failed," Gloystein told Newsweek.

Halfway through the winter season, EU gas inventories are still at around 90 percent capacity in most member countries. Even if there is a cold snap before the end of the season, there should still be enough gas in storage to cope, he said.

"We now have a well-supplied EU gas market, even without Russian gas," he told Newsweek. "That's reflected in current gas prices, which are at their lowest level since the start of Russia's invasion."

Boges...you made a claim that was wrong. I showed you your error. You can't accept that. Thus...you make an asinine claim that I can't offer anything "substantive" to your nonsensical discussion.

This is the tactics of someone who's been "owned" and is too much of a simpleton...too...willing to try resorting to slander.

But son. Don't be too hard on yourself. Not everyone will read this exchange.

Today the Republicans take congress

LMAO Day 1 and its already a shitshow for the know-nothing republican grifters who squabble amongst themselves for the title of Top Grifter  You losers just keep losing!

McCarthy fails to secure Speakership on historic second ballot

 

Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) failed to win the Speakership on a second ballot Tuesday afternoon, sending the race for the top spot to a third ballot.

McCarthy received 203 votes, the same as on the first ballot and fewer than the 218 needed to secure the gavel in the chamber. House Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries (D-N.Y.) secured 212 votes, winning support from the entire Democratic caucus.

 

….McCarthy did not win over any Republicans on the second ballot, a troubling sign for the GOP leader who has vowed to remain in the race for as long as it takes him to become Speaker. The same 19 Republicans voted against him on the second ballot as the first.

The Speakership race, which hasn’t gone to a second ballot in a century, now goes to a third ballot with neither side publicly backing down.

Oh it’s already been upgraded to 3 strikes for the Republican Clown Car

 

U.S. House adjourns after Republican Kevin McCarthy suffers historic 3rd defeat in vote to become Speaker
 

Unable to elect Republican leader Kevin McCarthy as the new U.S. House speaker Tuesday, the Republicans adjourned for the day in disarray as the party tries to regroup from his historic defeat after a long, messy start for the new Congress.

The surprise end to day one shows there is no easy way out for McCarthy, whose effort to claim the gavel collapsed to opposition from conservatives. Needing 218 votes in the full House, McCarthy got just 203 in two rounds — fewer even than Democrat Hakeem Jeffries in the Republican-controlled chamber. A third ballot was even worse, with McCarthy losing 20 votes as night fell on the new House GOP majority, tensions rising as all other business came to a halt…..
