Provocação do dia...

If free trade and globalization are about protecting power and privilege, so is their nemesis. Shedding crocodile tears over the working conditions of a teenager in a country you cannot find on the biggest map is but a lame attempt to cover up the fear of losing one's overpaid job to an "ugly foreigner" who can do it better for less.

xúxú :)
pai tecto! ;)
Sem qualquer dúvida, assino por baixo... :-)
Hey there Elise!
So, tell me, what's your opinion here? Was that an article you scour the net to find, or something from a regular source?
I don't think there are any simple answers in this debate, but I'm keen to hear what you think. I know you love the dubya (which I don't for SO many reasons), so i guess it'd be good to have a coffee and chat with you about the beefy topics! we should do the msn chat thing so we can argue properly, if we can arrange the 8 hour time difference thing! Cheers, MrG

micróbio, estava a precisar de desabafar. ;)

mr, sometimes i browse regular sources - bbc, cnn, al jazeera, spiegel, some right wing blogs, - and other times i just google the subjects i want. yes, i'm pro bush, but i'm not blindly supportive of him. occasionally he does some mess. ;) i don't have msn, i use mirc. yes, we must chit chat. we can do it by mail, if you want.
muito bem...
Hey Elise, what is mirc? Send me a link and maybe i can sign up for that! Hehe, this will be good. i'm by nature more aligned with the left side of politics - no not lefty hippy shite, but reasonable society-based priority for government. I come from a right wing political wider family, my family is in politics, so I like to think I can see both sides of the coin. I am interested in European politics too. I sent that 5 points link to some of my friends, it was a well written list.
I look forward to our chat!
MrG
