Another curious number: the combined value of the senators, deputies and their ilk (around 60k people) goes over five billions per year. More than the country's budget for research. Or police.

Each gets about 26 grand a month, plus another 15 grand spread among a series of benefits, unlimited health care of all sorts, fueling, private security. Most work roughly 3 days per week and take 2 months of vacation per year. Any given day where they work past their normal daily journey is worth an entire salary's extra.

I'd have liked to see the Bolivian plane to crash, if only because it would be a political nightmare for Portugal, France AND the US.

Less important, but our King anounced his abdication.
When that day comes, seek all the light and wonder of this world, and fight.

Egypt is very interesting to watch. Seems like the only way to get by now there would be either a totally populist leadership, or extreme martial law. Otherwise, the protesters will keep going, knowing they have the power to push the leaders out.

The fact that the Egyptian military isn't directly controlled by the government makes the martial law option unlikely barring a genuine military coup. Whoever's in charge has to keep both the public and the military on side.

Ugh...


So let me get this straight... The Constitution guarantees freedom of the press so that the Government can never silence contrary opinions, then some Senator wants the Government to be able to decide who qualifies as "press".

Yeah, that'll end well. Can't see any way anyone could ever exploit that one to silence dissension.

Do these people even think things through?

I am sure the court would throw it out as soon as it was challenged, but obviously it would take someone with the resources to appear before the Supreme Court. No way would it be Constitutional.
