Welcome home Herbert Stein.....

Ok all you students of history out there, wake up and watch Greece. There is a Great Depression in action happening before your eyes in real time. It will not be pretty. Look at what we have here.... A Prime Minister that is putting a bail out to a referendum and then campaigning against it. That is right....ask the Germans to prolong the bail out and then tell everyone to vote against it. That is nuts.

But far worse is the fact that the people in power are Marxists, Maoists, communists and even a sprinkling of Nazis in there. Throw in a healthy dash of socialists and you have quite a concoction.

Here's a thought, why not pay for all the stuff you want yourself. That is a real novel idea isn't it? Whether you like it or not that is going to be right around the corner.

Mind you, none of this business has anything to do with Greece paying back what they owe, it is about stringing the bail out along. Keep lending to us and we will make our payments...but on our terms and not yours. Here's an answer to that....stick it.

The Greeks deserve everything they got coming. As the late great Herbert Stein said "something that can't go on forever won't." Welcome home Herbert Stein.

From today's Wall Street for Hillary and this is what you have coming. Say hi to Herbert Marcuse again.

From columnist George F. Will’s keynote address at the inaugural Disinvitation Dinner, hosted in New York City on April 15 by the William F. Buckley, Jr. Program at Yale to honor those whose invitations to speak at U.S. universities were retracted because of their views:

Free speech has never been, in the history of our republic, more comprehensively, aggressively and dangerously threatened than it is now. The Alien and Sedition Acts arose from a temporary, transitory fever and were in any case sunsetted and disappeared. The fevers after and during the First World War and in the early culture war era also were eruptions of distemper rooted in local conditions and local issues bound to disappear, which they did.
Today’s attack is different. It’s an attack on the theory of freedom of speech. It is an attack on the desirability of free speech and indeed if listened to carefully and plumbed fully, what we have today is an attack on the very possibility of free speech. The belief is that the First Amendment is a mistake. . . .
Yesterday the Democratic Party, the oldest political party in the world, the party that guided this country through two world wars and is more responsible than any other for the shape of the modern American state—the Democratic Party’s leading and prohibitively favored frontrunner candidate for the presidential nomination announced four goals for her public life going forward, one of which is to amend the Bill of Rights to make it less protective. It’s an astonishing event. She said that she wants to change the First Amendment in order to further empower the political class to regulate the quantity, content and timing of political speech about the political class—and so far as I can tell there’s not a ripple of commentary about this on the stagnant waters of the American journalistic community.

Don't call them ISIS or ISIL or Daesh.....They are the United Pretend State of Goat Foggers.

That's UPSOGF for short.

Gonna throw my daughter off the Leaning Tower of Pizza? I got three words for you and the first one isn't "I".
