QuoteThe trouble with most co-housing groups I have worked with is that they make common decisions by consensus - this insures that meetings are endless and that everyone will have a burning opinion about your cat and what color the mailboxes should be. (In consensus model meetings the more passionate and unbending your opinion the more likely the group will yield to your position.)
Quote[size=14]Bush Buys Land in Northern Paraguay[/size]Buenos Aires, Oct 13 (Prensa Latina) An Argentine official regarded the intention of the George W. Bush family to settle on the Acuifero Guarani (Paraguay) as surprising, besides being a bad signal for the governments of the region.Luis D Elia, undersecretary for the Social Habitat in the Argentine Federal Planning Ministry, issued a memo partially reproduced by digital INFOBAE.com, in which he spoke of the purchase by Bush of a 98,842-acre farm in northern Paraguay, between Brazil and Bolivia.The news circulated Thursday in non-official sources in Asuncion, Paraguay.D Elia considered this Bush step counterproductive for the regional power expressed by Presidents Nestor Kirchner, Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva, Evo Morales, Hugo Chavez and Fidel Castro.He said that "it is a bad signal that the Bush family is doing business with natural resources linked to the future of MERCOSUR."The official pointed out that this situation could cause a hypothetical conflict of all the armies in the region, and called attention to the Bush family habit of associating business and politics.ef ccs tac rmhPL-38
