Why the Dems may lose Miami -> Florida -> USA

This year Florida will elect a new senator, in a three-way race between the Democrat Kendrick Meek, the Independent Charlie Crist, and the Republican Marco Rubio. Chances are slim that Meek will win. This is usually attributed to Democratic voters voting for “anybody who can beat Rubio,” but there may be another factor that the

Beam me up, there is no intelligent life in USA

The so-called birthers in the US claim that president Barack Obama was not born in USA and thus cannot be president. That’s not what makes me want to be beamed up.

If the Micheletti regime digs in its heels, the result could be the very destabilization that the United States and its moderate allies hope to

Lösning möjlig i Honduras

Brevet säger att USA inte stödjer en viss politiker, utan Honduras demokrati.
