What’s the definition of insanity again?

Isn’t it doing the same thing over and over, but expecting a different and contrary result? Well, if that’s the case, then the Euros are insane. The Euro is getting hammered and the S&P has downgraded Greece’s rating 2 notches yet again – they obviously are certain a Greek default is a question of when, not if – with several other southern European countries heading the same way, and what do they do? Well, they double down on the stupid and are looking to provide more bailouts for the Greeks. What is the damned incentive for the Greeks to live in their means after that?

Shit, go ahead and keep running debt up and spending money you don’t have on the big collectivist state Greeks! What are these other losers gonna do? Cut you off? Watch the EU crumble around them? Nah, they are so desperate to keep the fantasy of the EU and the collectivist nanny state alive, for as long as possible, that they are simply not going to even blink at the fact that the Greeks are thumbing their noses at them and their demands for austerity measures. It’s a free ride for all of you, man. And Italy, Spain, Portugal, and even Ireland are on notice not to try to hard to fix their fiscal madhouses either. Spend like there isn’t going to be an end to the free money ride! More bennies for the slackers! Retirement at 50 for everyone but government employees: they can retire at 45! 25 hour work weeks for all! Free healthcare till you get old enough that they figure euthanizing you is the humane thing to do! And most important of all, have Uncle Sam keep paying for your defense and the bank bailouts!

Seriously, this is where we are it seems too. It’s going to be an ugly few decades with the nanny states basically unraveling across the globe. The people that want the free ride ain’t gonna give it up. There are rich people to fleece, don’t ya know! Hold on to your horses.

    Well, Euros have already once again reminded me that Greece is a rich and ancient culture many 1000s of years old, whereas US culture so far has only kinda flickered a brief tiny bit with the election of Clinton/Gore. Obama looked like one of them, till he went and murderd a retired benign Bin Laden.

    Turkey still wants to join, and the EU is still taking its time reviewing their “qualifications”. I’m starting to worry a bit about the retirement I’m entitled to receive from them a decade or so from now.

    Our state/federal government worker unions are doing the same to us. California just keeps on fucking the chicken hoping that someday it won’t be viewed as Greece.

    My solution is to tax state workers, and only state workers, in the 90th percentile no matter the bracket to make them pay for their benefits.Jerry brown stain is a union patsy kicking the ball down field but Greece is not too far removed from the states and for the same reasons. Look at greece employment stats and you will find Greece doesn’t do shit outside of government work and benefits.

    If I was germany I’d kick the bunch of corrupt losers out on their asses too. Just like California should.

    Fucking the chicken?!? I assume that was supposed to be children, as in using bonds and such passing on the burden to the children.

    Yeah, CA is pretty much screwed if things don’t turn around right quick. Now I’m pissed off at the bullshit commercials the teachers union is foisting on us about how we’re at a crisis and need to contact our reps in Sacramento to urge them to pass a budget that saves our schools from any further cuts, because they’ve apparently been cut to the bone thus far. Screw them… they’re one of the biggest burdens and a massive source of waste. We already pour far more money into the public school system here then is really needed but they simply want more and more.

    Precisely what is the overall difference between Greece, in respect to EU, and California and the USA?
    Muslim children will cede Greece to the Caliphate and our government educated children will surrender California to La Raza.

    Or is this a -can’t happen here – situation?

    It can’t happen here, there or anywhere.

    Except for the fact that IT IS happening in various parts of France, England, and Dearborn Michigan. Other than those places, it cant happen anywhere. Right Kim?

    That’s just nonsense. It isn’t happening anywhere in Europe, nor is it happening in the US. Hell, it ain’t even happening in the middle east. There will be no caliphate.

    And La Raza is equally ridiculous, regardless if you are talking about Mexico or Spain.

    There are no ethnic communties or ghettos anywhere in Europe, and Germans never complain about supporting lazy EU bastards like Italians and Spanish who are too goddam lazy to properly clean their overpriced vacation hotel rooms for paying guests accustomed to prim, proper and clean.

    The governments in these places might tell you it is not happening, and do so vehemently, despite any proof to the contrary. Ask the people of these countries, when they are sure you aren’t just asking to then paint them as racist for their honest answers, and you will be surprised at what you will get, Kimpost. Now the fact is that these European host countries, for all their talk about being more inclusive and tolerant, are neither. Their imported labor force has been treaded like serfs, and their policies have often tried to segregate these outsiders. That sort of policy is gonna breed resentment and have consequences. And the consequences unfortunately aren’t a demand to change the status quo, but militant Islamism. People like Pim Fortuyn and his counterpart in every European country don’t happen by happenstance. When you have entire enclaves where the natives will not go out of fear, that seem to grow in size fast, that doesn’t bode well for the argument that things are fine.

    A caliphate in Europe? La Raza? A caliphate even in US?

    Step back and give it some thought guys. I mean, really?

    I didn’t mention a caliphate, not soon, but I certainly can see an Islamic republic of France in a few decades. There are quite a few othere heading that way as well. All the Islamists need is to win the first vote, all democratic and such, and that’s the end of that. Wan’t proof? Check out Turkey and look at what Edrogan has done there. I bet the Ataturk is spinning in his grave.
