Pericles: 495 – 429 BC Ours is not the first – nor shall it be the last – nation that rose upon the face of the Earth to become all powerful. The first known celebration of Memorial Day in the United States was only in 1865 but, really, it’s been celebrated for thousands of years throughout human history. Capitol Commentary honors all those –...

The European Union is an excellent example of that movie Field of Dreams: If you build it, they will come. But because we’re dealing with Socialists...

In places where people no longer feel responsible for their way of life – or for the consequences of their actions – we have the story from...

From England’s The Guardian: Fears of a deepening of Europe’s debt crisis have prompted the world’s leading central banks to pump...

The riots, strikes, and international intervention we are seeing in Greece should serve as a warning to Americans and our elected officials as to what...

Liberals in America control California and New York and Detroit… three states in social and financial ruin.  In Europe, Liberals built the post-WWII Utopian welfare state (with America footing their defense bill) and it lies in ruins… the EU might be over sooner than we think and 1 trillion Euros was borrowed to bail out a corrupt Liberal welfare state like...

Europe is already into Greece for $100 billion Euro (about $126,500,000.00) and U.S. “exposure” could be as high as $50 billion.  Decades of post-war social spending programs have eaten away at the fiscal health of European and American economies.  Many Liberals decry American military spending (some of this criticism is with merit) however military spending...

Exploding social spending The financial meltdown we are witnessing in Greece, which will soon spread like wild fire to other EU states like Portugal and Spain (and the U.S. as our banks have billions in loans outstanding) is the result of too much government spending and not enough government income.  Greece has had a bad run of debt… in 1893 the country declared...

After having wasted over $787 billion of our money on a “stimulus” program that economists admit didn’t do anything and after enacting Obamakare, which Democrats now say will cost companies billions, it seems as though President Obama’s debt commission has suddenly come to the amazing revelation that our nation’s debt: “…is like a...

I found this amusing… a letter from the editors of Bild, a German newspaper, to the prime minister of Greece regarding their financial difficulties: Dear prime minister, If you’re reading this, you’ve entered a country different from yours. You’re in Germany. Here, people work until they are 67 and there is no 14th-month salary for civil servants....

Much has been written here already on the turmoil in Greece… a semi-failed country that used its EU membership to borrow at artificially low rates to fund its growing Socialist welfare state. Now, the bills are coming due and cutting back on the pork is proving to be a problem: “There is an all-out war against public servants, those who earn the least,”...

It's called "ancient Greece" because it's dead. Greece was the cradle of Democracy and even though that country peaked over 2,000 years ago, its ideals and contribution towards civilization are still felt today. Arianna Stassinopoulos, I mean Arianna Huffington, might not have paid too much attention during her time in school with this “observation”...

Welfare rarely works and only serves to make those who receive it dependent upon the State.  But what if that welfare was not from the State to individuals but to other countries?  And what if that welfare was several billion dollars per year and was based on fake science and was going to be sent to countries riddled by corruption? It’s all set to happen, this...
