Euro Economy Crisis – Worst Yet To Come
The worst is yet to come for the Euro economy. This is based in realism and not pessimism. The Euro-Magicians have done some of their best tricks. They sawed Greek debt in half, made Euros appear out of nowhere, and are making leaders of countries disappear. And they’re just warming up. For the finale, a giant debt bubble will vaporize into thin air…exactly what it was built on.
Euro Economy Crisis – Swing Your President Round and Round
Let’s do the Euro Dance. We’ve seen Prime Minister Papandreou ‘step aside’ and now Prime Minister Berlusconi wants to do the same, but only after he lays heavy austerity measures on the Italian people. I guess he wants to give Italians something to remember him by when this billionaire Prime Minister retires to one of his many mansions. How many more Presidents and Prime Ministers will be shown the door? Certainly, Papandreou and Berlusconi won’t be the last.

Next President – Change or Total Collapse – More Of The Same
Everybody wants to know who the next President of the United States will be. Will it be another term for Barack Obama with 4 more years of over-spending, political infighting, increasing unemployment, and growing civil and financial frustration? Will Republicans be able to find a suitable candidate who can displace him? Who will that be and what will change if that person wins the election? If the situation doesn’t change, then it doesn’t matter which party or candidate gets elected.

Terrorism Is A Term Of Convenience – Nobody Knows What Terrorism Is
Nobody seems to know what terrorism is. Alex Schmid, in his book, “Political terrorism: A Research Guide,” examines more than a hundred different definitions of terrorism in an attempt to find an acceptable and comprehensive one. He couldn’t. Although terrorism is a word that is tossed about freely and frequently, nobody can agree on what it is and who’s a terrorist.
Terrorism Is A Term Of Convenience – Who Really Is A Terrorist?
If nobody can agree on a definition of terrorism, then who is a terrorist? The closest people can get to defining a terrorist is someone who uses acts of violence perpetuated for religious, political, or ideological reasons. Even then people seem to disagree. There’s even a saying that states, “One man’s terrorist is another’s freedom fighter.” Apparently, it’s all in the perspective and whose side you’re on.Continue reading »

Mid-strife Crisis For Europe
Europe is having a mid-strife crisis. The G-20 was supposed to come to France this week to address the problems of the international monetary system, banking regulations, bailouts, unemployment, safe food and water, declining growth, corruption, and if they have some time left over in their 2-day meeting, maybe they’ll tackle global warming. What they will be greeted with however, is political instability in the region, countries defaulting on their debt, and the Euro economy falling into recession or worse. On top of that, everyone is protesting. It seems citizens don’t like growing financial inequality, not having jobs, corruption, high food prices, governments not being able to manage themselves, and austerity measures imposed by the Germans in order to get bailout money. Who would have known?
