€urosclerosis: Well, wahhh! The Greeks don’t want to pay their own bills!

It’s been a while since we’ve noted the economic problems of the eurozone, but those problems never really went away. From The Wall Street Journal:

France and Germany Push Athens on Bailout Commitments
French President Francois Hollande Raises Possibility of Greece Leaving Eurozone
By William Horobin in Paris and Andrea Thomas in Berlin | Jan. 5, 2015 11:58 a.m. ET

France and Germany on Monday stepped up pressure on Greece to meet the terms of bailout programs, returning to the brinkmanship of the eurozone debt crisis as the 19-nation currency dropped to a nine-year low.

In Paris, French President François Hollande said the government that will emerge from Greece’s Jan. 25 snap election will have to stick to the commitments Athens made when it received European Union aid. The warning comes three weeks ahead of a Greek election that could yield a leftist government opposed to European-imposed austerity.

Departing from the traditional stance that euro membership is irrevocable, the French leader raised the possibility of Greece exiting the bloc. Laying the responsibility for the unity of the eurozone on the Greek people, Mr. Hollande told French radio: “Regarding Greece’s membership of the eurozone, it’s up to Greece alone to decide.”

In Berlin, German economics minister Sigmar Gabriel hammered a similar message, saying that while Europe aimed to keep Greece inside the eurozone, it wouldn’t tolerate any threats to stability rebuilt over the past few years.

More at the link. But part of the problem is that even President Hollande doesn’t want to do what is necessary:

While Mr. Hollande stressed that Greece must meet debt-reduction commitments, he also said there is a limit to the capacity of European people to endure austerity.

The rise of far-left parties such as Syriza in Greece, he said, stems from the heavy price the country has already paid to remain in the euro. “Whatever the vote, Europe must no longer be synonymous with austerity,” Mr. Hollande said.

Yes, actually, Europe should be synonymous with austerity, because the Europeans have to pay their bills! The Europeans have lived beyond the means justified by their production for decades now, and the mountain of debt has continued to grow; eventually those bills have to be paid, and that means that the Europeans will have to, for a while, live less well than their production supports, to pay down their debts.

Politicians don’t like that, politicians certainly don’t like doing something really radical like telling their constituents a hard and uncomfortable truth, but eventually the truth will come out.

The Greeks may well vote in a leftist government, but they can’t vote in prosperity; governments cannot change the laws of economics. If the go broke, well then, they go broke. It won’t be pleasant, but maybe, just maybe, it will send a message to the Republicans in Washington that the same thing could happen to us.

How can the left be this stupid?

From Donald Douglas:

Violent Leftists Shut Down Ron Wyden Town Hall in Portland

All they want to do is shut things down.

Damn thugs overran the place, and that was it.

At Oregon Live, “Wyden town hall disrupted by ‘hands up, don’t shoot’ protests.

And at Progs Today, “CHAOS ERUPTS As #Ferguson Protesters Shut Down Sen. Wyden Town Hall – Threaten to Beat Security Guard (VIDEO).”

As security tries to gain control and close the door, a big black mofo rams his foot inside as a door stop and threatens, “I’ll Break Your Jaw Old Man!

Well, so much for MLK-style civil disobedience. These people are violent anarcho-communists!

Uhhh, Senator Wyden is a Democrat, a liberal Democrat,1 a Senator who is much more likely than not to agree with their agenda, so, naturally, the right thing for them to do is to persuade the Senator that they are nothing but a bunch of uncivilized hooligans.

Then there was this story:

#BlackBrunchNYC Is #WarOnBrunch And White People


Yesterday a group of hooligans entered a number of eateries in Oakland and Los Angeles and disturbed patrons eating breakfast, brunch and shopping at the Apple Store. Today it’s on to NYC where they’re doing the same thing.

The irony is the woman in the green hat here is a legal observer with the National Lawyers Guild. I wonder what law they believe allows them to enter an establishment, disrupt business and harass customers.

The left really need to read this book!

The left really need to read this book!

There’s more, including a couple more photos, at the original. But what, I have to ask, makes these fine people think that they will persuade others to sympathize with their cause by annoying them, by disrupting their meal or their free time? I cannot speak for anyone else, but I can tell you how I would react: I’d tell them, straight out, that they’re nothing but a bunch of pigs, and that they could count on me never supporting their worthless cause.

They are simply this year’s version of the Occupy protesters, who made an initially favorable impression on some foolish people, the Editor definitely not among them, but quickly proceeded to wear out their welcome.

The Occupods were then followed by the Ferguson rioters, who thought that it was a good idea to protest the killing of a drugged-up thug who attacked a policeman by burning down businesses mostly in their own neighborhoods, and now, when even the dullest among them ought to have enough sense to shut up while funerals are going on for New York police officers murdered in the line of duty, the continue to demonstrate — pun intended — to law abiding and sensible people that they are rude, crude, and just plain stupid.

  1. From Roll Call, from February 11, 2014:

    On Thursday the Oregon Democrat will become the most liberal chairman in the modern history of the Finance Committee, the most powerful panel in the Senate.

    Notwithstanding his many well-publicized feints toward Republicans — on health entitlements reform and tax simplification, trade liberalization and clean energy, foreign surveillance and domestic civil liberties, senatorial secrecy and campaign financing — Wyden remains among the senators most loyal to the mainstream American political left.

    His voting record has earned him a 94 percent annual average support score during his Senate career from Americans for Democratic Action and an 88 percent approval level from the AFL-CIO. He’s voted the way President Barack Obama wanted 97 percent of the time in the past five years, CQ Roll Call’s congressional vote studies found. And he’s stuck with his side on 97 percent of votes that fell mostly along party lines during his 18 years as a senator — a time period when the annual Senate Democratic party unity score was 11 points below that.

I’m pretty sure that we’ll win!

Rule 5 Blogging: Italians

It’s the weekend and time, once again, for THE FIRST STREET JOURNAL’S version of Rule 5 Blogging. Robert Stacey Stacy McCain described Rule 5 as posting photos of pretty women somewhat déshabillé, but, on this site, our Rule 5 Blogging doesn’t put up pictures of Claudia Romani in her summer clothes, but women, in full military gear, serving their countries in the armed forces. The terribly sexist authors on this site celebrate strong women, women who can take care of themselves and take care of others, women who have been willing to put their lives on the line in some not-so-friendly places, women who truly do have the “We can do it!” attitude. Since my darling bride (of 35 years, 7 months and 15 days) is planning on a family vacation in Italy in 2016, this seems like a good time to note Italian soldiers!

Washington Post Very Upset That GOP Controls So Much Of State Government
By William Teach January 3, 2015 – 7:30 am

And that they might look to pass Republican/Conservative policy agendas!

(WP) Legislators in the 24 states where Republicans now hold total control plan to push a series of aggressive policy initiatives in the coming year aimed at limiting the power of the federal government and rekindling the culture wars.

The unprecedented breadth of the Republican majority — the party now controls 31 governorships and 68 of 98 partisan legislative chambers1 — all but guarantees a new tide of conservative laws. Republicans plan to launch a fresh assault on the Common Core education standards, press abortion regulations, cut personal and corporate income taxes and take up dozens of measures challenging the power of labor unions and the Environmental Protection Agency.

Before Election Day, the GOP controlled 59 partisan legislative chambers across the country. The increase to 68 gives Republicans six more chambers than their previous record in the modern era, set after special elections in 2011 and 2012.

How horrible for Democrats! The GOP might actually propagate a Conservative legislative agenda at the state level, just like they were elected to do. At the state level, it’s quite clear that the voters have tired of the hardcore leftism that is destroying our country and states. This is also quite apparent by the number of Liberals moving out of deep Democrat states and to Republican states, due to the actual horrible results of the Democratic policies in those Democrat states.

More at the link. But it seems that the editors of The Washington Post are just terribly upset that the voters, in free and fair elections, chose to give a majority of their votes to Republican candidates, and Heaven forfend! the Republican majorities are threatening to do something really radical like keep their promises!

The editors of The Washington Post are very much in favor of democratic elections . . . as long as they produce Democratic victories.

And now, on to the blogroll!

  1. Nebraska’s unicameral state Senate is officially non-partisan, but unofficially Republicans outnumber Democrats by a wide margin.

Since I wear only one contact lens . . .

. . . this might be a good look for me!

Democrats just can’t tell the truth!

From The American Thinker:

Wendy Davis comes clean on her fake gun rights election position
By Thomas Lifson

Wendy Davis, the crushingly defeated Democrat nominee for Texas governor, should go down in the history books as the ultimate expression of the fakery and hype that characterize the Democratic Party of the early 21st century.  But considering the bias that pervades academia, it is more likely she will be lionized, just as FDR is credited with fighting the Depression his policies extended and aggravated.

Still, explaining away her admission this week that she faked her position on open carry (the ability of Texans to wear firearms visible to others) in order to get elected, even though she doesn’t believe it is the right policy,  will require some contortions.

Asche Schow if the Washington Examiner writes:

Former Texas gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis, in her first interview after losing by 20 points to governor-elect Greg Abbott, admitted she only claimed to support an open-carry gun law in order to win votes.

“There is one thing that I would do differently in that campaign, and it relates to the position that I took on open-carry,” Davis told the San Antonio Express-News on Monday. “I made a quick decision on that with a very short conversation with my team and it wasn’t really in keeping with what I think is the correct position on that issue.”

Davis added that she does support “people’s right to own and to bear arms in appropriate situations,” but fears that open carry would be used “to intimidate and cause fear.”

Remember when Democrats were excited about the glamorous crusader who was going to turn Texas blue? Now she is just a phony Joanie who turned out to be not above slyly reminding voters he opponent is wheelchair bound, and who claimed to advocate gun rights policies she didn’t believe in.

Moving day: State Senator Wendy Davis (D-TX 10) is out of office. Click to enlarge.

Senator Davis ran for Governor as her state Senate term was running out, and thus she is out of public office completely. I’m guessing that she sees little hope in Texas politics now, or she wouldn’t have admitted that she was taking a position on the right to keep and bear arms with which she really didn’t agree, just to get votes; she has exposed herself as a liar!

Perhaps even more damaging is her admission that she took “a quick decision on that with a very short conversation with my team and it wasn’t really in keeping with what I think is the correct position on that issue.” She basically stated that she didn’t lead her own campaign team, and that she couldn’t get quick decisions right.

I am reminded of Kentucky Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes’ campaign for the United States Senate, and our story noting that James O’Keefe caught her own campaign staffers saying that they believed she was lying concerning her position on the use of coal, simply to win votes.1 I was unable to find, through a Google search, any evidence that Mrs Grimes has said anything which would indicate that her pre-election positions on coal or gun control were in any way not what she believes, which means, at the very least, that she has kept her mouth shut; perhaps she is planning on another election at some point.2

Several Democrats facing election in 2014 ran away from President Obama and his positions, including soon to be former Senators3 Kay Hagan (D-NC), Mark Pryor (D-AR), Mark Begich (D-AK) and Mary Landrieu (D-LA). Your Editor wonders just how many of their constituents just flat didn’t believe those Democrats when they took positions setting themselves apart from the President. But, whether many of their constituents believed them or not, concerning the Kentucky election, we pointed it out previously: even if Mrs Grimes believed exactly what she says she believed, even if she really did mean everything she said in her campaign, if she had been elected, her very first votes would have been to give greater power to those Democrats who do not believe the things she claimed she does, who would work to curtail our Second Amendment rights, and who would work to harm the coal industry.

Maybe, just maybe, the Democrats would be better served by doing something really radical, and telling the truth about themselves4 and their positions; fudging their positions or just flat out lying hasn’t seemed to help them very much.

  1. Neither Mr O’Keefe nor anyone else was able to catch Mrs Grimes saying these things personally.
  2. Mrs Grimes’ term as Secretary of State, an electoral position in the Bluegrass State, comes up for election in 2015.
  3. Their terms officially end on January 3rd.
  4. Wendy Davis seriously misrepresented her own biography.

Of Interest

Yesterday (the 30th) I worked on getting my tablets reconnected to the house Wi-Fi. Something was screwy, but made connection again. I turned the Tablet on and an occasional message about ready the Bible for 5 minutes everyday. I usually say not now, but something compelled me to do this. I clicked on the Bible App and this was the first item up. Didn’t search for it, it was just there. So, I read it and about crapped myself.

Matthew 24

Jesus left the temple area and was going away, when his disciples approached him to point out the temple buildings. He said to them in reply, “You see all these things, do you not? Amen, I say to you, there will not be left here a stone upon another stone that will not be thrown down.”

As he was sitting on the Mount of Olives, the disciples approached him privately and said, “Tell us, when will this happen, and what sign will there be of your coming, and of the end of the age?” Jesus said to them in reply, “See that no one deceives you. For many will come in my name, saying, ‘I am the Messiah,’ and they will deceive many. You will hear of wars and reports of wars; see that you are not alarmed, for these things must happen, but it will not yet be the end. Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom; there will be famines and earthquakes from place to place. All these are the beginning of the labor pains.

Then they will hand you over to persecution, and they will kill you. You will be hated by all nations because of my name. And then many will be led into sin; they will betray and hate one another. Many false prophets will arise and deceive many; and because of the increase of evildoing, the love of many will grow cold. But the one who perseveres to the end will be saved. And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached throughout the world as a witness to all nations, and then the end will come. “When you see the desolating abomination spoken of through Daniel the prophet standing in the holy place (let the reader understand), then those in Judea must flee to the mountains, a person on the housetop must not go down to get things out of his house, a person in the field must not return to get his cloak. Woe to pregnant women and nursing mothers in those days. Pray that your flight not be in winter or on the sabbath, for at that time there will be great tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the world until now, nor ever will be. And if those days had not been shortened, no one would be saved; but for the sake of the elect they will be shortened. If anyone says to you then, ‘Look, here is the Messiah!’ or, ‘There he is!’ do not believe it. False messiahs and false prophets will arise, and they will perform signs and wonders so great as to deceive, if that were possible, even the elect. Behold, I have told it to you beforehand. So if they say to you, ‘He is in the desert,’ do not go out there; if they say, ‘He is in the inner rooms,’ do not believe it. For just as lightning comes from the east and is seen as far as the west, so will the coming of the Son of Man be. Wherever the corpse is, there the vultures will gather.

“Immediately after the tribulation of those days, the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light, and the stars will fall from the sky, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken. And then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in heaven, and all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the Son of Man coming upon the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. And he will send out his angels with a trumpet blast, and they will gather his elect from the four winds, from one end of the heavens to the other.

“Learn a lesson from the fig tree. When its branch becomes tender and sprouts leaves, you know that summer is near. In the same way, when you see all these things, know that he is near, at the gates. Amen, I say to you, this generation will not pass away until all these things have taken place. Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will not pass away.

“But of that day and hour no one knows, neither the angels of heaven, nor the Son, but the Father alone. For as it was in the days of Noah, so it will be at the coming of the Son of Man. In [those] days before the flood, they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, up to the day that Noah entered the ark. They did not know until the flood came and carried them all away. So will it be [also] at the coming of the Son of Man. Two men will be out in the field; one will be taken, and one will be left. Two women will be grinding at the mill; one will be taken, and one will be left. Therefore, stay awake! For you do not know on which day your Lord will come. Be sure of this: if the master of the house had known the hour of night when the thief was coming, he would have stayed awake and not let his house be broken into. So too, you also must be prepared, for at an hour you do not expect, the Son of Man will come.

“Who, then, is the faithful and prudent servant, whom the master has put in charge of his household to distribute to them their food at the proper time? Blessed is that servant whom his master on his arrival finds doing so. Amen, I say to you, he will put him in charge of all his property. But if that wicked servant says to himself, ‘My master is long delayed,’ and begins to beat his fellow servants, and eat and drink with drunkards, the servant’s master will come on an unexpected day and at an unknown hour and will punish him severely and assign him a place with the hypocrites, where there will be wailing and grinding of teeth.
