Leonard Cohen – Democracy Is Coming to The USA

I dedicated this initially to the Independence Day of the USA. You may also read HERE a text written by Parker J Palmer for the same celebration day.

However, after the US strangely elected Trump as president, I find the lyrics of this song most fitting for the present situation.

So, is democracy really coming to the USA? We shall see.

Here are the lyrics.

Canada & The United States: Bizarre Borders

I love maps. They tell fascinating stories. You can find quite a number of them on my blog. It is is enough to search for ‘map’ on the home page and you will find them.

Bizarerie americana – 15 state ar dori sa paraseasca SUA

Publicatia The Examiner anunta ca 15 state membre ale uniunii numite SUA, intre care si Texasul, ar dori sa paraseasca uniunea.

Este vorba de fapt de o adunatura de fanatici de dreapta din aceste state care au initiat petitii pe aceasta tema si anuna liste de semnaturi.

In realitate, confom legislatieie americane un stan nu poate parasi uniunea, asa cum un judet din Romania nu poate decide miine ca nu mai vrea sa faca aparte din Romania.Parasirea uniunii inseamna implicit o declaratie de razboi la adresa Statelor Unite. Sa fim seriosi. Cine ar fi gata sa faca o asemenea timpenie?

Dar legea nu inseamna nimic pentru acesti fanatici. Lor nu le place de Obama si vor sa iasa. De ce nu se duc oare in Birmania? Ca acolo administratia este de (foarte) dreapta.

Se vede ca nu numai in Romania s-a rasturnat caruta cu prosti.
