Hey, Portugal! Do you have a flag?
With Portugal beginning to crumble (read here) I think it is time that we, the private citizens of the Americas lay claim to parts of Europe. Soon the Portugese government will collapse and the national flag will be rendered useless. Without a flag the land and the people become ripe for the picking. I will book passage on a freighter, sail acoss the Atlantic, and plant my own flag on the beaches of Lisbon. Under this new flag I shall restore order! The only social programs I plan to enact is everyone receives a Water Dog when they turn 18 and one free alcoholic beverage every Friday at lunch.
Listen to this monologue, it explains my thinking. If it worked five hundred years ago over here, why not now over there?
Forgive me for being silly. The weather here is beautiful today.
