Europe thinking about making English its official language

Tagged:  

I just returned from an extended business trip to Europe. If you haven't traveled there, you might be surprised to learn that English is the unifying language. Very seldom did I run into a social or business situation where the European with whom I was interacting couldn't communicate in English.

There is a growing trend within European Union nations to make English the official language. How ironic. At a time when U.S. companies are making you "Press 1 for English" and ATMs require choosing from a menu containing Spanish, Mandarin and Arabic, the land of many languages is thinking of making English its multi-country language.

Republic of Ireland Approves Gay Marriage

Tagged:  

In a nationwide referendum, Ireland voted to make marriage legal between any two people regardless of gender. This is most notable for a variety of reasons. When polled, over 80% of the people of Ireland claim that they follow the Catholic faith. On the eve of the vote, several Catholic church leaders pleaded with their parishioners to defeat this referendum.

I think this book might be a Bestseller. I'm looking forward to reading it! I didn't know the Asians are the fastest growing minority population in the Country.

UK=The New Edorado

Of course, first they have to breach the English Channel. I'm glad we have barriers such as the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans, and the North Pole.

Good job, Mr. President

I only wish that Obama had held a Rose Garden signing ceremony with leaders of both parties by his side.

A message from Amjad

You gotta love this guy. He calls the Israeli military response "indiscriminate bombing" and Hamas' terrorism campaigns "occasional flare-ups." I think he's due for another visit to his hometown in Pakistan, where the people are tolerant and cherish peace.

On Wednesday, the Senate voted 54-42 to end debate on S. 2569, the Bring Jobs Home Act — 60 votes were needed to advance the measure.

Sens. John Walsh (D-Mont.) and Debbie Stabenow (D-Mich.) introduced the bill, which would give companies incentives to bring jobs back to the United States, including a tax write-off for the relocating costs and an additional 20 percent credit.

Should Soccer Be The So-Called World Sport?

Tagged:  

I know there's a political component, and additionally, there's the money issue. I remember soccer has been pushed in this country, since I first began following sports, c. 1960. I think baseball should be the official "World Sport", but that's a personal choice. That said, basketball is played the world over, and even some of the Commie Countries love it. As an American, I want to see Our Country dominate in the sports' world as well. I don't care for watching "0-0" scores, game after game, either. Hopefully, this notion will wither on the vine, as they say.

Airliner Shot Down By Russian AA Battery-295 Dead!

Holy Shit! Airliner shot down, at 33,000 feet. Flying over the Ukraine. Putin calls Absentee Landlord at the Hamptons. If not the Rooskies, some group with access to Rooskie anti aircraft missiles. Airliner was Malaysian. All European Airliners to be diverted around this part of Eastern European airspace.

PING ping ping... ping ping

Getting tired yet of being "strung along" with the ping ping ping story told over and over and over and over, instead of any real news? About the plane that most of us have assumed crashed into the ocean?

Well there is a story out on the internet, on several websites now. And I post it here for informational purposes only. I don't say it's true or not true. Be forewarned, I'm not going to argue on behalf of the story.

GLOBAL WARMING: THE LATEST FRON THE UN.

I am attaching a link to this article which was on that far-left website MSN News. For those who believe that all of this global warming is nonsense aimed at America to try to destroy America's relative prosperity, the article points out that the heaviest polluter "by far" is China. Is there a connection between the pollution in China and the movement of heavily polluting industries to China from America, Europe, and Japan? Hmmm...

IMHO -- Those who presented the study deny that it is "too alarmist." However, there is an apocalyptic feel to it. GZ aka Mr. Empty Glass should LOVE it!

Putin's Best Friend

I was wondering if other conservatives and/or Republicans feel the same way about Putin as does Stevan Seagal. And before we all dismiss Mr. Seagal as just another Hollywood nutcase, he is seriously considering running to be Governor of Arizona.
