A Greek Socialist Tragedy: Who's the Selfish One Now?
Here's an interesting article I came across at the Washington Times. It's not just President Obama sending us on this course. They all are. Vote them all out now or pay later, especially the Senate. Disgusting animals, all of them.
As for the Greeks, well, does anyone know about the welfare state that Otto von Bismarck created? The Germans had one heck of warfare/welfare state going on in the late 1800s and early 1900s, that is until they were carved up during WWI. Then the Germans were forced to subsidize the welfare of the conquering nations. Their economy collapsed under hyperinflation as they tried to monetize their debts. Conditions deteriorate slowly at first, then rapidly, then the crack-up boom. Then along comes a guy with a plan. I'm wondering out loud what the Greeks are going to do? It's not like they have a population young enough to go out and take what they think is theirs.
That's all. Enjoy the read.
