  •  The one thing that Europeans could do (0+ / 0-)

    for themselves is to kick Germany out of the EU. I am kind of kidding but Germany has played a destructive role for quite a while in Europe. Spain is a good example of how cheap German dough from all those pension funds flooded into the Spanish economy, creating a housing bubble that crashed eventually, and then left Spain having to cope with the hangover. The Spanish were not profligate; the government did not run large deficits, but the Spanish people are now suffering German-imposed suffering. To think that Romney would have brought that craziness here!

    For if there is a sin against life, it consists perhaps not so much in despairing of life as in hoping for another life and in eluding the implacable grandeur of this life. - Albert Camus
