Make no mistake about it! The EU exists for the sole purpose of keeping Americans out of our TEFL schools.

I knew it!
It's all about keeping the Germans in, the Americans out, and the Russians down. Or something like that. (As you know, all us Yanks are all horrid with geography and politics.)

Yip! All your dark suspicions were correct - as many posters have written on this very forum, the EU is really about keeping Americans and their corrupt bourgeois ways out of European classrooms. And protecting out kids from the resulting gun-related violence.

But the Russians aren't down... merely waiting in the wings...

Isn't all this talk of the ECB buying bonds similar to what the U.S. Fed. did a while ago with American banks? With the Euro countries though, they are painting it as a sign that the end is nigh, in the U.S. it is only being used as fodder for the campaigning.

Gasp! Californian cities teeter on the abyss. Fears of dollar collapse fuelling social unrest. Possible break up of the US if California secedes. Click on our panic-mongering graphics to see totally made-up scenarios and learn how this might affect you!


OK, so this is not what you'll read in the BBC article. But why not?

Ho ho! Is the Sterling zone about to break up? Perhaps the rump-state that used to be UK will be joining the Eurozone in a couple of years?

The Stderling Zone ! Ah, nostalgia. I nremember when it covered more than a quarter of the Globe.

Has anyone told the City of London that things have changed ? Have they noticed that the Empire has gone ?

It was sold to the Americans so as to keep the Germans out. The Empire's very own 'open-door' policy, as described by Marxist historians.
