    •  Yes, but "austerity" is a strange word. (4+ / 0-)

      It comes to us from the Austrians, people who live to the East and are, presumably, not as fun-loving as the Germans. :)
      And the Austrians are the people who gave us that rascalli rabbid guy who caused Europe to go up in flames. So, you'd thing we'd look twice before accepting prescriptions from people whose sense of resentment seems to break out from time to time. The Austrians, among whom I spent my first four years of life, strike me as similar to some of the people in the south-eastern parts of the U.S. whose resentments sometimes lead them to nose-cutting excesses, if you get my drift. :)

      We organize governments to deliver services and prevent abuse.
