European Constitution

New York City, United states — A New York Times article has uncovered that the White House has been rewriting the facts in scientific government reports about global warming. Bush' rejection of the Kyoto-treaty
apparently is a result of lobbying by the people from Exxon. What a surprise!

For those who have seen Star Wars III: Revenge of the Sith, read this alternative script. I think it's funny.

The bodies that empower "Europe" as world-power are now forced to come up with an alternative script for an European Constitution. Since next to the French also the Dutch said "no" to the treaty leading to a Constitution they will have to come up with a new one. The version that now stands talks too much about how legislation should be turned into practical laws. It deals with laws on the war of terror and other stuff that basically should not be part of a contitution. Let alone the rules concerning "a free and in every way liberal market on all fronts of the economy". I hate to see a liberal market in energy, education and healthcare. It wiil lead to no good, I promise you.
We can all see where the American constitutional right to bear arms has led to. No doubt it was very effective at the start of the new republic but it turns out to be seriously outdated. Even leading to a new law in Florida giving citizens the right to shoot someone "whenever they feel threatened". Sounds like anarchism to me...

Since the first of june I'm once again part of the army of National working force reserve. Unemployed, in other words. Not a bad timing, just before summer...;-)
So now I've got ome more time to spend with my kids and other loved ones.
On top of that I can now do all sort of chores in and around the house that have been lying around to be done for years.

According to mr. William Schultz, top man of the American division of Amnesty International, Guantanamo Bay is part of a system to be compared to the "Gulag" in the old days: a series of prisoncamps where torturing prisoners is more rule than exception. People favoring the Bush-administration call his accusation "Al-Qaida propaganda" which in itself is quite hilarious. To state that this terrorist group sponsors Amnesty International.
Unfortunately the group opposing mr. Schultz has yet to prove their statement.

Just finished my first week as temporarily unemployed person and I must say "so far, so good".
Writing application-letters still proves to be no problem. Of the 29 job-applications I've send out so far I've already received three responses: two turn-downs and one complaint of someone not being able to open the e-mail attachment...
I'll keep you posted.
