An Atheinian Memorial Day Message for America

An Atheinian Memorial Day Message for America

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 […]

Greece and the European Union

Greece and the European Union

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 and Europeans we need to modify that slightly: If you bend the rules enough and allow accounting tricks they will come but won’t stay long. Okay, that’s not as […]

In Socialist Greece, Dumping Children into the Streets

In Socialist Greece, Dumping Children into the Streets

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 England’s Mail Online about parents dumping their children in the streets or refusing to pick them up at school:

Athens’ Ark of the World youth centre said four children, including a newborn baby, had been left on its doorstep in recent months.

The U.S. “Bails Out” Europe, Who Bails Out the U.S.?

The U.S. “Bails Out” Europe, Who Bails Out the U.S.?

From England’s The Guardian:

Fears of a deepening of Europe’s debt crisis have prompted the world’s leading central banks to pump US dollars into the financial system, in a co-ordinated action designed to boost market confidence.
Under the terms of the deal, banks will be able to bid for unlimited amounts of US dollars at fixed interest rates in three separate auctions. The first of these will be on 12 October.

Greece: Socialism Gone Wild!

Greece: Socialism Gone Wild!

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 decades of Left Wing politics does to a country: infantilizes the population, destroys the economy, and weakens other stronger countries. Now the International Monetary Fund is stepping in to save the day or, at least, postpone the reckoning.

Sadly, it doesn’t appear as if Democrats in the U.S. seem to want to take notice of the reasons behind the crisis or how interventionist organizations are almost as bad as the problems which they seek to cure.

Where Liberals Rule They Destroy

Where Liberals Rule They Destroy

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 […]

The Bill for Liberal Social Spending is Coming Due

The Bill for Liberal Social Spending is Coming Due

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 […]

Big Government Destroys Civilizations

Big Government Destroys Civilizations

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… […]

Obama & Co. Break Budget, Cry to Mommy

Obama & Co. Break Budget, Cry to Mommy

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 cancer; it’s […]

A Letter from Germany to Greece

A Letter from Germany to Greece

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 […]

Why Politicians Won't Wean Us from Pork

Why Politicians Won't Wean Us from Pork

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 […]
