1-Cut in tolerance Point on Tuesday of Carnival
I confess that I've walked a bit fed up with diatribes that this and other governments have done in. What are glorious people who resist this policy that riffraff incompetently in removing our roads and our rest portugality- ie here's an attack on our chicken eggs Gold (tourism in Portugal) with notice made at the last minute; even if the measure were taken in year ahead, disagreed with but respected, so there.
Do not let, nevertheless, to take the opportunity to questionar this strategy to cut days off, adding workdays, as a way to increase productivity.

Santa ignorância!
Are measures taken by beliefs based, ideologies and beliefs and not justified by theories or facts which make us very badly.
Just another consideration if you importeis; it is strange to see that in several regions of the globe there are terrible pockets of poverty that is supported with stoicism and even some happiness life, because after all will still have reasons to dance, play, dating friends ... well remember the joy of Cuban or Brazilian people who live in slums and celebrating the existence enthusiastically. This guys just wants the power frolics just for them or they are ignorant.
