Up is down

Does anyone else find this strange?
The number of European countries doing away with border checks expanded by nine early on Friday morning. Most of those joined were behind the Iron Curtain just 20 years ago.

Europe just got bigger. At one minute after midnight local time on early Friday morning, border controls vanished for nine more European Union members, many of them former members of the Soviet Bloc. Fireworks, cheers, music and speeches throughout the morning welcomed the expansion, which means that travelers can move from the far corners of Estonia all the way to the Atlantic coast in Portugal without once encountering a border guard.

Europe is becoming united, more peaceful, and the Euro is rising in value while the U.S. is building walls, becoming warlike and thuggish, and the dollar is in free fall. We just need to avoid getting a leader that gives rambling incoherent speeches, has an elite private army, and although democratically elected, gathers all powers to himself in order to protect our freedoms.... oh shit.

At least Bush doesn't have a toothbrush moustache...

For all we know he may not even have a toothbrush. I mean, really, look at those snags in his gaping maw (not Bar).
