#1 Let's see, the islamists are on the move and the communists are on the move (externally and internally). What can I say after that...words really escape me at this point?

#2 JQC, Ditto.
This is only the second day since the election that I have been on a blog.
I am so disgusted, frustrated and despondent with the trajectory of the world that I'm rapidly crawling into the hole and pulling it in after myself.

#3 Bullshit, no one talked about this in Portugal. And everyone maybe except the Communists - and even then they are of soviet extraction - would not agree. The other leftists don't like the Chinese.
The only change is if the Chinese drop a boatload of money here. And by boatload i man something real huge, like erasing all our debt or something...

PG, the Chinese won't need to. They play a long game and Portugal is going down the gurglar.
Then they will make an offer Portugal can't refuse.

#5 Sorry AlanC. Looks like we were in the same place this morning. I think it is healthy every now and then to just retreat from the news and ignore it completely...find some diversions. Enjoy the family or friends, go on a hike, go canoeing or kyacking, see a movie, read a book, etc.

#6 A hostile island in the atlantic is a target, not a threat.

#7 Exactly. I think it might have some commercial value tho.
