Lord save their souls and ours.
Coming soon to a nation near you. :)
Monday ought to be a fascinating day for the markets. If nothing positive comes out of the election...just more chaos, then I think you will see a massive loss on the European markets, and the entire week will be miserable. The dollar will actually gain against the Euro....acting like like it was fifteen years ago (although it’s a fake strong, if you ask me).
Nobody pays their taxes but they retie in their 50’s.
Now they want the world to bankroll that lifestyle.
The #1 issue facing people in a situation like this is that they either have the skills to make their own way... or they don’t.
When I read of the pathos and misery the press in Europe loves to tout in their attempts to shame the Germans into spending the treasure of Germany to fund the cushy grifters to Greece, I NB one this: The people who are killing themselves, the people who are rioting in the streets, etc... have a common issue: They’re devoid of any skills in producing a tangible product. They don’t know how to make anything, they don’t have skills with which they can barter (eg, a doctor) etc. Their entire lives have been lived as effete parasites upon those who have taken upon themselves the dirty work of building a running civilization.
As such, I don’t shed many tears at their demise.
This, people, is evolution in action. Humans were not supposed to be specialists, the evolutionary niche of insects. Homo sapiens evolved to adapt rapidly to changing conditions and rather than have to wait for the genetic adaptation to environmental conditions, humans could change their environment.
The over-educated, over-specialized and overly dramatic sorts of people who abound in today’s soft societies seem to have forgotten this.
God have mercy on their souls.
I’m amazed the headline doesn’t include the word “Acropolypse!”
It all goes back to the fact that nothing is “free”; everything has a cost that must be paid.
Someone else must pay for the “free” items.
They only seem free because they are given as charity, purchased with a loan or received via via government wealth redistribution which is nothing more than extortion and confiscation from others.
Except for bona fide charity, a day of payback will surely arrive.
As the old adage goes: “You can pay me now or you can pay me later.”
People in Greece have come face to face with the day when payment is due.
Our stupid, venal, traitorous politicians and the self interest groups they pander to are taking the USA down the same pathway as Greece and the end is in sight.
And there is no favorable light at the end of the tunnel - that is just rioters burning and looting the neighborhoods.
Thanks again for the ping and the post, gentlemen.
Here in FLA, we have a number of trigger events coming up that could ignite the accelerant.
First, it’s Hurricane Season again. While a number of Floridians have endured storm after storm through the years, there is ALWAYS panic-buying and raiding the shops prior to a storm. Additionally, the infrastructure is fragile(power, water, telecomms). If we get a strong one again, like the 2004 season or a repeat of Andrew in ‘92, we could see a Katrina scenario again.
In August, we have the RNC National Convention here in Tampa. The city mayor already tried a gun-grab, ordering that there be no firearms in the city limits during the convention; the Governor shot it down. Internet traffic shows the Leftists plan to disrupt the convention by any means necessary. And the neighborhoods of feral blacks are just looking for an excuse to “party”.
And no one can predict when or where the Zimmerman case will go down. The race-industry has already proclaimed they will start riots, regardless of whether there’s an acquittal or a conviction.
Myself and The Bride have had dinner-table discussions in recent weeks, along with the wedding plans. We are making ourselves harder targets, and planning out expansions to our preps. And since we’re both vets, we’re going to teach the daughters basic marksmanship.
“wrote the 60-year-old unemployed musician. “
This is Greece, so it should be “60-year old RETIRED musician”. He’s been retired for 10 years.
My credit card is overdrawn, we do not have enough food to feed ourselves. I live a drama with no end. Does anyone have a solution for me? World leaders, you who brought this financial crisis, you all need hanging!
So he admits he lived as a grasshopper, did not prepare, wasted his time and money strumming his mandolin and lying in the sun, and yet blames "World leaders" for his plight. GTFO.
Here's a thought for you, buddy: how about you go get a real job?
The ants are tired of your kind.
Is there any other kind? A paid musician is a vanity of the rich - be it an individual or a society.
Maybe there is something productive you could do on the side.
