Europe is now sinking fast. “Government is destroying society, proving the falsity of the heretofore accepted belief (in Europe, anyway) that government makes society better. But then, anyone who has bothered to read Hayek’s The Road to Serfdom will not be surprised.” And Obama is rushing to bring the Euro model here before it implodes and takes Europe with it. Forward.

“A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and he carries his banners openly. But the traitor moves among those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not traitor, he speaks in the accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their garments, and he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of a city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to be feared.” – Cicero, 42 B.C.

A nation can survive it’s fools, as long as it doesn’t put them in positions of power.

As I’ve said before, never underestimate the power of stupid people in large groups.

The Euro is not sustainable because the richer countries can’t keep bailing out the poorer countries. The Euro has proven to be a really bad idea of having one currency for the European Community, first put forward in the 1970 Werner Report.

Sorry IWS, that was supposed to be a TU.
I have always wondered why Europe wasn’t one big country like the US or Canada.
But then we have just as poor of an economic position as the Euro countries. Maybe we would do better to split into 50 smaller but cooperating countries. That way, our financial problems would be centered in the areas that create the stupidity, and the Red States would be liquid! 😉

It isn´t just the euro, it is the system itself which is rotten to the core and on life support.

Europe, and now America. I may as well just move to some 3rd world craphole and get it over with instead of waiting for it to come to me.

Naw, I would rather be the UNKNOWN guy behind the throne, when the king loses his head, I wanna keep mine.

Add the FED, all 12 branches, and there might be enough.

My wife was talking yesterday about how nice it would be to live in Europe with their 4 week vacations, etc. I told her that wasn’t going to last too much longer, because they’re running out of money. She looked confused, but then she watches NBC news in the morning. :roll:
Why I’m still here, I have no idea!

Funny, isn’t it, the way wives/girlfriends/partners don’t ever seem to understand the seriousness of things. We live in France, which, whilst jolly good fun at first (and relatively inexpensive) is now becoming mega-expensive, and is about to fall mightily under its shiny new socialist administration. Can’t get the GF to understand why – blank looks. Likewise with this stupid global warming nonsense – GF thinks the climate is different from, say, a few years ago, and it must be our fault because the media and all those brilliant scientists say it is so. Try to explain the truth about CO2 not being a problem that needs fixing, lying organisations (like NASA) who “fix” data to suit themselves, fraud, funding, political interference, Common Purpose, Bilderberg, Club of Rome, corrupt UN, etc., etc. Blank.

Most of the disinterested sheeple numpties respond in this way. Little wonder that the ‘informed’ world is sinking fast, and we are plunging down the proverbial toilet.

Actually, what is sad is that we come to a site like this and find like thinking females, that are not only smart, and funny, but actually get it!

If you haven’t been to Europe lately, they are all acting as if nothing is wrong. They still live on credit-they still pay the lion’s share of their citizens to sit on their asses, still are allowing every disgusting misanthrope from the middle east/north africa a free ride in, and public dole money at record pace. They are their own worst enemy.
And the funniest thing is, where we are most like them, is where the libtards there are calling those who are trying to save the continent from insolvency…are you ready for it…..RACISTs….when they want to stem the flow of illegal immigration, and where they are trying to protect judeao-christian values….yep, O and company are bringing the euro model here….only difference between us and europe-we have lots of guns-and I mean lots-so when our guy tries to do more euro-style self ruination, our citizens will rise up, unlike the defenseless euro-trash who voted themselves right into serfdom when they agreed to give up their guns! Austria and Switzerland are the only ones who will survive!

No, Obama is ahead of most european countries, not behind.

The difference is that it is now obvious the Greeks can´t print their way out of their mess, pay back and thus can´t find anyone to willingly lend to them, while the mask is already starting to fall off for others.

Socialist piggies are enjoying the Karma from their decisions (all bad) and can’t understand why it is not working..What’s the old saying? Socialism has failed everywhere it’s been tried, and Europe is getting dangerously close to running out of other people’s money…and we are right behind them with Faux President Barry and his band of mental midget advisers……It’s almost like the morons who run Europe and the Morons who run the USA are having a race top see who can ruin everything first….
