Ahhh... that reminds me I haven't looked this week: from junkscience.com's home page:

Kyoto has now cost over 43.5 Billion dollars.
It has achieved a max of 0.00045 degree lower temp by 2050.

Europe's pretty much as it was 72 hours ago. The dream of a centrally-controlled superstate is the only thing that's in crisis.

The votes also cast doubt on the EU's hopes(?) for a stronger foreign policy and its plans(?) to expand further to the western Balkans, Turkey and Ukraine, and raised questions about its appetite for economic reform amid mounting global competition.

You're right. All of the stories I've heard the last couple of days ask the same question: "Now what do we do?".

You s**tcan the whole thing, that's what you do.

The rejection of the charter by two of the six countries that founded the bloc in the 1950s

I could swear that a week ago the Euro was going to reduce the US to third world status. The empty bloc.

The U. S. MSM is including themselves in the implied we.

Hey Europe,

Try a constitution that starts, "We the people of ... in order to form a more perfect union do ordain...."

Garde la Foi, mes amis! Jamais reculez á tyrannie un pouce!
(Keep the Faith, my friends! Never give an inch to tyranny!)

Romania and Bulgaria have probably just got in time ... but for Croatia or Turkey it's a different story."

IOW, forget inviting in the Muslims, nobody in their right minds wants them included.

"Alright, that's enough! The treaty says all must approve. TWo haven't. Treaty dead. Why are we still having this conversation about this maybe being the end of it?"

Because we're talking about socialists here. You know, the people who vote against it before voting for it.

That's it! People believe it because they're too poorly educated to examine the sentences they hear. That's why I teach (Call me an idealist if you like).

I'm glad you're a teacher. My dad (the greatest one in the world) was a teacher. But is it only that they're too poorly educated, or does being shallow have anything to do with it?

They act as they believe ... as they have heard and seen.

The most sensible, concise analysis I have heard on this subject. And I have read all, and I mean ALL, of the articles and their threads on FR concerning the vote in Europe. Some way to spend your vacation.

Evidently, the EU elite are going to keep on having these referendums in countries that vote "no" until they finally win one. On the other hand, in any countries voting "yes",
there will be no further votes and no reconsiderations will be allowed. Like the Hotel California, you can check but you can't ever check out. (Kinda like the U.S., no?)

The Czech Republic said on Wednesday it would seek an extension of the November 2006 deadline for ratification to give countries that vote "No" more time to reconsider.

I was thinking, how about more time to let the countries that voted "yes" have the option to reconsider. Oops, to re-vote after "yes" would be trying to overturn the will of the people.
