Immigration, Unemployment, The Golden Dawn and The Not-So-Funny Side of Beppe Grillo
So just how do we construct a valid set that that contains poorly-regulated immigration, unemployment, The Golden Dawn, and Beppe Grillo? If we’re lucky, here in America, we probably cannot. So, as Cliff Eastwood famously asked. “Are you feeling lucky?”
Now given the nice, violent intro and the unresolved rhetorical queries above, I should explain this all a bit. I’ll endeavor below. The governments of what we typically refer to as The West are following a set of economic policies and a set of immigration policies that are accidentally making the rise of a politically influential fascist movement more likely in the Western World.
If things work out really badly over here, we could easily be on our way to having people gain power in America like Governor Huey Long. We once had a President who thanked and congratulated Filmmaker D.W Griffith on his pro – Ku Klux Klan historical fantasy “Birth of a Nation.”

Contra Yeats; The Greek Center Held
Official results released by the interior ministry, with 97 percent of ballots counted, showed New Democracy taking 29.7 percent of the vote, with SYRIZA on 26.9. The PASOK Socialists were set to take 12.3 percent of the vote. Because of a 50-seat bonus given to the party which comes first, that would give New Democracy and PASOK 162 seats in the 300-seat parliament, in an | Read More »
Do Welfare States Incur Odious Debts?
We think single currencies really require single governments…There’s nowhere in the world that has more of a single currency without having more of a single government. British PM David Cameron (HT: The Daily Mail).
Beware The Greeks Bearing Votes
Brett Stevens of Amerika.org theorized that human societies can have two forms of culture; Managerial and Organic. He describes these two options below. • Managerial. Like attending a job, days at an American high school or going to a mall, the managerial state consists of people who have nothing in common except wanting to make money and not get murdered. As a result, a strong | Read More »

Barack Obama, The Tea Party And The Train-Wreck Of Modern Leftism.
In the meantime, can anybody answer this question: where is the Tea Party of Progressives? Why are the Nascar morons and Jesus jokers the only people in this country who can mount an aggressive political movement? Will somebody please step up and take the baton?

Nationalism Will Kill The Euro
“If the euro fails, then Europe fails.” – German Chancellor Angela Merkel (HT: The Economic Collapse) The Euro has its issues. It combines 17 disparate currencies into one. This group of nations is known as The Eurozone. The Euro works based upon a framework of internal limits that Eurozone members would adapt. The agreement was that no Eurozone member would take on annual public debt | Read More »
Europe Should Demand Stupidity Reparations From The Greeks
The Greeks have officially gone from the brilliance of Aristotle to the bovine scatology of Reverend Al Sharpton. I look back on the whole experience of reading The Crito, and realize that Socrates really did have a point when he drank the hemlock. A Greek Member of Parliament demonstrated why friends don’t let friends drink the Jones-Flavored Cool-Aid of identity politics. “How does Germany have | Read More »
