The liberals are using the "America isn't Greece" argument and my answer to that is no we're not Greece.Policy Failure: Greece was told that if it wanted a bailout, it needed to consider privatizing its government health care system. So tell us again why the U.S. is following Europe's welfare state model.The requirement, part of a deal arranged by the IMF, the European Union and the European Central bank, is a tacit admission that national health care programs are unsustainable. Along with transportation and energy, the bailout group, according to the New York Times, wants the Greek government to remove "the state from the marketplace in crucial sectors."This is not some cranky or politically motivated demand. It is a condition based on the ugly reality of government medicine. The Times reports that economists — not right-wingers opposed to health care who want to blow up Times Square — say liberalizing "the health care industry would help bring down prices in these areas, which are among the highest in Europe."Of course most of the media have been largely silent about the health care privatization measure for Greece, as it conflicts with their universal, single-payer health care narrative.The public health system in the Hellenic Republic is operated by the Ministry of Health and Welfare, where centralized decisions and rules are made.continue reading at - IBD - Investors.com
In fact, we're not even America anymore, just take a look around you and tell me if this resembles anything close to what you've grown up with in this country if you're my age, around 45 and I've lived in 15 different states in the North and the South.
This place has been rendered unrecognizable. Not even on the same planet for this enraged American, not even close.
The work ethic of today doesn't even exist since 90% of our manufacturing jobs are in other countries now, and we're being run into the ground by a bunch of booksmart college kids today and clout wielding geezers before that .
However, I take "the geezers" any day of the week against the college pussies (of which I'm one) who've never built anything (of which I am not as you can see here and 23 years of running printing presses) nor run anything in their lives, (of which I am not in again 25 years in the printing industry 10 at the Trib) .... nothing ...NADA.... SQUAT.
That's my answer, we're more like Greece than Greece is when it comes to lazy asses that's for DAMN sure.
This country couldn't fight its way out of a flooded Walmart without uncle Sambo doing it for them .
Hell half of New Orleans were so broke they couldn't even leave their freaking houses when their city flooded, can you believe that shit? It's been 4 or 5 years and I still can't believe it .....then it cost us $5000 a head or fa ass I guess I should say to lift their fat asses off of their own roofs of the 'welfare state given homes' most of them were living in.
Naw we're not like Greece, they're filled with white lazy asses and we're filled with all colors white green, brown, black, yellow, we have scum from every color and they don't so I'd say we're worse off than they are.
