Not United Union

Suddenly, I have decided to study, or at least refresh, a little bit about European Union as I, suddenly as well, have realized I am already a little bit lost regarding this mixture of countries under the designation of EU, all of them located in this (very) old territory called Europe.

Start from the beginning… […]

April 25th, forever…

Another Carnation Revolution celebration day! This time, things are pretty much different from previous years. Portugal’s independence is totally jeopardized, in danger, as we are now lead by other entities than ourselves.

Current wars, in Europe, are economical. We no longer fear the invasion by platoons and canons. We fear, the ones who fear[1], […]

Troika

Twelve months after, Portugal is still crossing the desert towards the hell. Self victimized country, owner of a hard to understand past oriented attitude, totally deprived of a national pride, owner of a huge identity which is not used for saving itself, Portugal is totally sunk in doubts, flip-flops and a very 3rd-world behavior which […]

S rkozy

I guess I am not clever enough to understand why French people removed an ‘A’[1] from the surname of Nicolas Sarkozy right after that group of financial games players, given by the name of Standard & Poor’s, lowered the credit rating of France from AAA to AA+. I don’t understand, but they must be right, […]

Working Off Holidays

Portugal, during its state of world garbage and while struggling to recover the respect from the financial world, is now in the middle of an interesting “religious vs. political” argument aiming the increase of the working time of Portuguese people. Said by simple words: a while after frau Angela Merkel has said that Portuguese talk […]
