Between such ignominy and helplessness, a news that brings something of light. A private school, the Best Schule, Los Angeles de San Rafael (Segovia), closed its doors. I do not want to be misunderstood: i feel deeply for the workers of the college; teachers, janitors, administrative staff ...
But the Junta de Castilla y León (incidentally, of the same political color that our beloved homeland autonomic artificial construction Madrid) has a policy not to perform concerts with the private schools.
And, of course, the results are what they are: only 17 registered for the year 2011-2012. Because here, for some strange magic esoteric, abracadabra! The public is private, public and private.
And suddenly it is that when you have to pay the services of a private company with their own money and not with other people's money, private education no longer cool.
If you amount a bar, i also conclude the Community of Madrid and i will be able to make unfair competition to the other bars offering the canes with a lower price than the market? I leave you, I'm going to ask our beloved administration with flag 7 stars (go on, as the Mahou!, the only thing that's worth already in the capital region community artificial! ).

Recently, without penalty or glory, step in our country market, the anniversary of the battle of Bailen, one of the most decisive events of the contemporary history of Spain and also in Europe.

Why do "a glimmer of hope"? On 19 June 1808, the remains of the army of a nation allegedly expired won for the first time the until now invincible army of Napoleon, the master of Europe. And as today when i got up, i can't wait to see the glass half full, i couldn't stop to establish a historical parallels between those difficult days and not less difficult our.

The army of the Marshal Dupont (winner in umpteen battles in Central Europe) he was so confident, scorning the natives. His army was composed of troops -fledgling, kids without experience in the front (first mistake)... and even then could have been overcome, because in all the previous meetings the spaniards went fleeing before the push of the imperial cavalry: Why would it be different this time?

The second error and more fat than the previous was the sack of Cordoba. For three days, the French soldiers looted, burned, murdered, raped and looted to pleasure. Thought they had learned to the spaniards forever.

But the effect was just the opposite: the looting and indiscriminate murder ignited to the population in such a way that there came a moment in which there was no rifles for many volunteers. Here's my first thought: if you spend playing the candle too fuck to the staff, at the end you will face.

The Spaniards learned commands (finally)! lesson: nothing of peasants in risky jobs, which then went running -removal leaving the flanks; instead, placed marines , veterans of Trafalgar. When the dreaded imperial cavalry attacked, the machacaron. Second personal reflection: discipline and determination can overcome to a greater enemy, but entrusted in our weakness.

The French had no option by his greed: going so loaded with the treasures of the looting of Cordoba, who could not maneuver quickly, were too slow and in the end they had to fight on a plain sterile with the entire Solana, and with the Spaniards by controlling the only pit.

Here are the third and fourth reflections: greed and excessive can blind the enemy, nor water.

And, by the way, as soon as the news that the invincible French army had been defeated, all over Germany rose up in rebellion against Napoleon: the ambitious, the Despoiler of artistic treasures; the intended to form a united Europe not under criteria of equality, but converting to all Europe in a Paris economic colony.
