    Dan I am not worried, but I like to write about what is the situation here, in Europe and south European´s countries.
    Let´s go:

    Here we are, first hour in the morning, in the bed ,Cuca, Gatufo and me. Another day listening to the radio the same things than ever, risk premium, Berlusconi again in Italy, and knowing that the Italian´s votes have been against the sistem.

    Of course, nearly all citizens in Italy, Portugal or Spain knows that these votes have been like a punishment to the C.E. system and the subject is how could only one of the European politicians or even the papers be so astonished by the votes results?.

    Here in Spain we have two brothers that are comics, very popular some years ago, sure if they may be presented to be leaders of a new party on the next elections they could get a lot of votes.

    People are fed up with the situation in the so bad called the U.E., (or the C.E.) seeing that the leaders do nothing, only increasing the taxes, more and more, every momento more people without a work, without their houses, without hopes, and without their rights.
    The only subject that worried them is the Euro?. Doing nothing, helping nothing, every moment asking people to do more sacrificies, so at the end what is going to happen with the Euro and the Economy….? A disaster, that´s for sure.

    They are very worried now because Italy situation is not firm, and they have done anything?. We all depends of what people are going to vote in Portugal, Spain, Italy, your country, France and so forth? It is crazy, I am fed up with the news and now first hour of the morning after getting up I am listening to Mark Knophfler and Leonard Cohen that are so good while Cuca and Gatufo are still in the bed listening to the radio news.

    In fact, I am so sure there is not any good solution about the next crisis when some not desire new goverment could be in a country like mine, or other with greit loans to pay, or in disagreement with the rules that are coming from Brussels, Germany goverment, or another kind of Institutuion like the European Central Bank, F.M.I. or similar.
    A person, a thousand, a million doesn´t matter for these goverments, they have lost everything, but doesn´t matter, they live without a work, a house, some money to spend……but doesn´t matter at all.
    The important subject it is to reduce the defficit as much as possible and they don´t see or don´t want to consider collateral effects on the people.

    My best to all of you.

    Now we could see what is happening in Istambul and other cities of Turkia, people are so piss off with the situation that are moving against any kind of goverment
    or politicians.
    This morning in Malaga, Spain, a young man burn up himself inside a Official building and so on, every day.

    I am right Dan, but having so many time to read the news and to write about the subject I prefer to talk up instead of being in silence.

    My best to all ESL friends, thank you Warren, now it has been your turn?. You know what I mean. Thanks dear professor.
