"NATO is our Frankenstein. And if we don’t stop it now, it will end up coming after us."

It already has if you define "us" as the people.  However, the "we" is some government or something with enough horsepower to end NATO.  And therein lies the rub.

Enjoyed this article but what if they held an election in a democratic country between the 2 major parties and they had names such as, Party Red and Party Blue.  And both sides said what they thought would get them elected because if their side got elected then they could party hearty and get babes and money and wine would flow to THEM while the losing side was shut out of the good times.


Would you expect the winning side to follow through with its promises made to get where they are now? Or would you expect to see about what we are seeing the winning party in Greece do now?


Just askin'....game theory might include the motivation of the players....?

Much of UNC is engaged in rabid leftist political activism and this fraudulent center at UNC, set up as a launching pad for Edwards to run for President, needs to be shut down ASAP.  Nichol is an incompetent marxist and no one with any sense listens to him anyway.

I have long thought that the entire eurozone fiasco was just another attempt by Germany to take over Europe.  They have tried many times militarily and failed.  Power is a combination of military and economic power, and both are intertwined.  Maybe this is the new way for Germany to try again?

@BrianMcM @JasonEmery @clovisdad  As one of those boomers you describe, let me tell you that you have raised a typical strawman/fear-based "point."  Social security is a deeply flawed program financially and needs to be wound down as it is unsustainable and unaffordable.  It can be humanely ended by a pro-active US government default where priority is given to different demands/creditors just as Peter Schiff and others have advocated.

Read this and then get back to us with an answer to the following question--

http://www.forbes.com/sites/richardsalsman/2011/09/27/social-security-is-much-worse-than-a-ponzi-scheme/

Question: should such a system, born of and perpetuated by lies, be continued as is?

@clovisdad  I agree with just about everything here.  But I do not think it has to be many years of austerity, theoretically at least. If they let the markets work and pricing to freely occur and be discovered rationally, I can't see how it takes too much longer than about 2 years and probably much less to fix it all.  But they won't do that because whoever does it will be blamed for the "crash" from now until the end of time by the controllers of all stripes who say they know better because, after all, they are the smartest people in the room because they say so.

@Adam Price The primary purpose of any QE is to increase govt spending at the expense of the private sector.  Historically, this was done by raising taxes but that won't fly politically so now we use QE.  They may dress it up as many other things but this is what happens every single time with QE.

@Le Rude Frog @clovisdad  Clovisdad nailed it. When the govt can effectively buy whatever it wants at the direct expense of the wealth-producing, private economy you will get an end point that you will not like. If you need a name, try "communism" or "fascism" or some other centrally planned, totalitarian form of society that will defacto suppress individual liberty.

Is this little dance over sanctions and counter sanctions and counter counter sanctions even real?  With the west's projection of vacillation and weakness so obvious and entrenched can we really believe that anything serious in the way of sanctions against any country will happen at all?  Is it all a war of words for public consumption?  Sure looks like we are watching a Punch and Judy show.

So?  Maybe it was a ruse delivered for public consumption, not like that has ever happened in the history of the world, now has it?  I repeat, so?

Then why were they dropped?  Details and facts please, not an argument why officialdom may have lied to us.  Geez...why do you waste your own time with something of so little consequence?  Part of a leftist meme on why American should self-hate, are we?

I think Truman was very measured and compassionate.  If it had been me, much worse would have happened, hopefully complete obliteration of Japan and all of its culture, to show the entire world what happens when you attack the US.  It then would have been written formally and openly into US Policy as the primary mission of the Dept of War (which never would have had it name changed) and perhaps the US Constitution to complete the object lesson.

If you want to end/minimize war, then all war should be perceived as one in which the only outcome is complete obliteration.

Obama's theater in trying to make us all believe he is doing something substantial might actually be the best thing he has ever done, being that it is as close to nothing as possible.  No one takes this bozo seriously, I wonder if he even does himself.  More will die, nothing Obama do will solve a thing, Obama's approval ratings stay in the mid-40% range.  Obama is OK, the ISOJ (Islamic State of Jihad) distraction is diverted for now.  Mission accomplished.  Back to his real goal of destroying America.

Just think how terrible it would have been if ObamaCare had not been in place.  What, why are you snickering?  Recall when Q1 GDP was first reported at +0.1% the reason given for the growth was....ObamaCare.  Now, with -2.9% think how awful it would have been, maybe even -10%, without ObamaCare.  Thank God for ObamaCare, savior of our economy!
