The Greek citizens bought into the lie that you can borrow your way to prosperity. So has the USA. The Greeks thought it was perfectly fine for the government to provide everything for them. The Greeks thought it was ok to take other peoples money to buy themselves what they need and want. Well other peoples money is gone. Socialism does not work. Yet, look at the fools in this country swarming to support Bernie Sanders, the devout and proclaimed socialist.
Just like Greece, There is NOT enough cash at the banks in this country if everyone wanted to take their money out and put it under their mattress. There is NOT enough money to insure all the bank accounts over $250,000.
This is what this country will be facing in the not too distant future. Unfortunately the sheeple are clueless.
Nah. Everything will be fine, now that the pesky confederate flag is “banned.” You see that was our real problem.
Oh yeah, also white supremacy and racism. That is also the real problem. This whole economic thing can wait. We have much bigger fish to fry here in the good ol USA.
Did you hear that Rubio got a boat?
It lies squarely in the American democrats. Any candidate that offers a pro-growth solution is castigated with the most unbelievable vitriol imaginable. It is the American democrst that won't survive. They have forsaken this nation like no other. Stay away from them. They only know how to bring misery.
Most Americans know the definition of theft. They know the definition of unfunded liabilities and what it implications mean. They know that they are complicit in one of the most heinous act ever perpetrated in the history of mankind against its future generations, since the children of Baal.
They just don’t care, and you only have ask why they keep taking their social security, their government welfare jobs, their pension, benefits, and government food on their table.
If you can stand the Greek like stench that surrounds them, the parasitic scum will tell you how much they deserve to steal the future of the country, the future of their own progeny. Then they’ll blame it on someone else like the corrupt politicians they so desperately need
The one thing they aren't is clueless.
Since the majority of Greeks still want to be part of the EU, and Germany (which is effectively the EU), is fed up with the Greeks, they will either cave-in this weekend, or get out of the EU and start their own currency.
Wrong it is the Dragon/Lucifer's engineering of the financial world for the "New World Order", http://www.jesus-is-savior.com/End%20of%20the%20World/seat_666.htm, it is supposed to happen it is "Prophecy" being fulfilled, http://www.jesus-is-savior.com/False%20Religions/Illuminati/nwo_basics.htm, video by Professor Walter Veith, https://youtu.be/Hct9S4cLYQY.
Think that's bad, wait until the Banks stop allowing people to get to any of their money and food cannot be purchased.
Atlas hasn’t shrugged yet, in Greece, but he is twitching mighty badly. Socialism once again failing.
Just, as you said so well, a preview of our future.

Even if he wants to change his ways the penal system and society will make it damn near impossible for him. With any felony record he must mark his employment application and his application will be thrown in the trash unless the employer is willing to hire felons. Without a way to make an honest living most resort to a continued life of crime.
Society talks about forgiveness and redemption but most are not willing to be on the side that actually grants it by their deeds.
He could start his own business and not have to worry about employment applications. Sounds like he has/had the smarts to do it — the question is: doe she have the intestinal fortitude to straighten his life out?
Sounds like an attitude that enable criminals to continue their illegal behavior. There are plenty of jobs an ex felon can get IF they put their mind to it and work hard. That's the most difficult part of the journey for them. But it can be done if they want it to get done.
As a society, we don't usually forgive and forget and that makes it hard for people who truly want to change their ways. However, the government does have significant tax credits for employers who hire felons. I have one client that hires many felons and gets a significant tax credit for doing so.
Well he's the one who put himself behind the 8-ball, so he has to deal with that. It's not the fault of the prospective employer, nor is it his obligation to offer any particular individual a job. If he has a felon and a non-felon to choose from, all else being equal, he'd be foolish not to choose the person with no record. Perhaps the guy who followed the straight and narrow should be turned down so that "society" can be seen as forgiving? That doesn't seem right to me. The employer and the felon don't live in a bubble you know, nor is the employer burdened with representing "society."

Amen to that. Especially when she is crying about the state paying for his post secondary education!
 July 3, 2015 at 8:53am
So the school district implies that it will take 58 months (468780 hrs) to retrieve 14 months of emails about her son. I say BS.
On another note, why is the Blaze glorifying this woman’s plight? She is angry that the State will not pay for her sons post secondary education. I’m sorry her son is a special needs kid but buck up and pay the damn bill yourself like the rest of us do. Then he can go where ever the hell he wants or works best for him. Her and her family are part of the entitlement crowd of I’m a _______(fill in the blank ie special needs, elderly, Hispanic, black, etc) therefore I am entitled to other peoples money to pay for me.
I’m rather sick of it!
Again as I posted above, where in this article does it say that she is mad or angry that the state will not pay her son"s education. I don't see where she is even asking for the state to pay. She is asking for E-mails.

Trump is 100% correct. Mexico, Guatemala and other South American countries are sending us their poor, their uneducated, their sick and their criminals. Just by crossing our border ILLEGALLY makes them a criminal!
TB is on the rise, drugs and cartel violence is on the rise, a fatal respiratory illness in children last year was linked to illegals, the outbreak of mumps was linked to foreigners (illegal, who knows?), our prisons are full of illegal gang members and the list goes on.
If I were Macy’s, what Trump had to say would be the least of my worries as their sales are falling and they are closing stores. I’m not aware of too many illegal immigrants that can afford to shop at Macy’s. NBC has been falling in ratings for years. Even if every illegal switched to NBC or MSNBC their ratings would still suck.
Trump at least has a set of balls and says what he thinks rather then what some handler tells him to think and say.
I would never vote for Trump for the office of POTUS. That said, boy is he shakin' things up! Every time the media BS artists think they have him, he blasts them with kernels of truth in a way they are unable to counter.
Note to Cruz, Paul, and Walker: Truthful statements spoken with conviction and commitment win debates, usually with anyone.

Absolutely disrespectful. I would also like to know why they had to mow the grass? Isn’t California in the middle of the worst drought in 100 years? Cites have actually gone dry! So why do they even have grass to mow, unless they are wasting water for the grass! Disrespectful on both counts.
Another example of people fighting back against government. The people of Boone county, Missouri packed the commission chamber last night to fight for the return of the ichthus that was covered on a war memorial honoring local people who died in desert storm by the county commissioners. The crowd extended out of the building.

Iran is majority Shiite. Saudi Arabia is a majority Sunni. Shiites are only 10-15% of the Saudi population. ISIS is Sunni which is why Saudi Arabia has been supporting ISIS in the proxy war against Iran and Syria.
Trilo hit it on the head. It'll be interesting to see how things shake now that Pakistan said that if Iran went into to Yemen(?) that they'd intervene militarily. Pakistan typically steers clear of Middle East matters and focuses on India.

It must be because of the confederate flag, as he lied about his family being slave owners 200 years ago! How could she be married to someone with this checked past? Political correctness sucks doesn’t it. Because we all know this generation must pay for the sins of the past century.
Because of his family history, Ben and his wife should have to forfeit all of his wealth and her future alimony because he did not create the wealth it was his white privilege and the workers/slaves who created it.

Turkey was and probably still is, giving access to ISIS terrorists within their borders. Turkey is where the US and others are training the “moderate” terrorists. Turkey is a NATO country and supported by the USA. The Turkish president was the first foreign leader our tyrant in chief called after his election.
Turkey and Jordan are enemies of Assad. Jordan and Turkey are enemies with the Kurds. The gulf states want Syria and Iran, both Shiite majority countries, to be overthrown by Sunni states and/or terrorists. The USA and Saudi Arabia want Assad gone because of the oil and gas pipeline Russia is going to build. The fact that turkey will fight against the Kurds as opposed to ISIS should speak volumes. The enemy of my enemy is my friend.
Couple of points on demography and international relations re: your post
- Syria is a Sunni country (not quite three-quarters Sunni) rather than Shia
- The Jordanians, not having Kurds within or immediately bordering them (Syrian and Iraqi Kurds are quite a long way away from Jordan's borders) aren't enemies with the Kurds.
- Saudi concerns about the Assad regime stem largely from its role as a client state to Iran, rather than from any pipeline stuff.

The race baiters and their minions (MSM, corporate America) are stirring up a hornets nest. These idiots used to be marginalized now they are gaining strength because everyday non-racist Americans are getting tired of being called racists and they are tired of this country being turned inside out.
Just like ISIS, people are going to start looking for organizations that stand for “something”. This country stands got nothing any longer. Right is rip wrong, left is right and black is white . Always remember, evil is very appealing for many because it gives them power over the weak and non-believers; a mass of people that continue to grow.
Either the old-time southern Democrat loony white supremacists trying to make a comeback, or some new style Democrat race baiters trying to promote the heck out of their out-of-control-racist whites meme.
I bet on the latter. California's lousy with them.
 June 29, 2015 at 8:29pm
Really? The world is burning and I have to read about Ted Cruz watching “hard core” porn with. SCOTUS judges? First of all, if porn was legal in print then why wouldn’t it be on the internet? Sounds to me like an excuse for them to watch porn.

While not much will be done because the girl is a juvenile at least she is now in the system, if she wasn’t already there. Once in the system she will remain there until she reaches the age of majority. If she continues to get into trouble, whether that be a status offense or law violations her punishments will increase to where she could eventually be put into a state juvenile facility rather than a county or city facility.
And then the tax payers will have to pay for the feeding, medical care, and every other expense for her entire life. Not exactly a win for the people.

It really sucks when you run out of other peoples money.
Just a harbinger of things to come to the USA. Just in case you do not realize it, but congress passed legislation for “bail-ins” where the banks can TAKE your money to pay THEIR debts. While you might get their “stock” in return but who the hell wants stocks from a bank that can not manage their money.
The Greeks are suckers. They were given a pie in the sky promise of free goodies. Unfortunately the free goodie fairy split town and left them holding the unfulfilled goodie bag. If politicians do not hang from the highest tree than it will be a miracle.
Gosh, how is that “gold is not money” thing going Ben ( Bernanke ) and Alan (Greenspan)? I’m rather sure that about now most Greeks wish they had gold or silver. Now they have useless Euros coming from empty ATM machines.
The Fabian progressives are just salivating waiting for the chaos to ensue so that they can sweep in and “save” the day. Only for the suckers to discover they were taken to the cleaners.
See ya freedom. Hello debt slaves. The USA is next. So watch and learn.

The human species seems to think that the oceans are an endless dumping ground for sewage, trash, pesticides, etc. The human species also seems to think that the oceans are an endless supply of food. Well, as usual we are incorrect. When you kill off the lower species of food, then those at the top of the food chain come looking for something else; such as more sharks coming closer to the shores.
As a previous commentator talked about the need to hunt for more sharks, they are in serious decline as well, thanks to the ethnic groups that like to eat shark fin soup. Which is such a fine example of their culture, wherein they catch a shark, cut off its fin then throw it back in the water to die. Oh well some people say, it is only a shark. Man has not listened to the warning signs. In our arrogance we continue to pillage and create chaos through endless wars. Since our country was founded we have been in more wars than any other nation. The oceans are dying, especially the Pacific Ocean; Christians and others are being slaughtered; the southwest (the fruit and vegetable capital of this country) is turning back into a desert and the fools out there only conserve water when it is nearly gone; the Pope is worried about global warming and thinks a world government is the answer and our politicians in DC continue to sell us out to the highest bidder.
But hey, who is in first place in the baseball standings is far more important. Our day of reckoning will come.

So this murdering pos had ties to radical Islam and was allowed to stay in the country? I am sorry but until the PC crowd gets a clue and stops the mass immigration into their countries and realizes true Islam is not peaceful then I’m tired of feeling sorry for the victims.
did you read the story? The only lead they had was a picture he sent after the act. They clearly stated they found no prior connection to other radicals.BTW France has a guilty until proven innocent doctrine.
 June 27, 2015 at 6:26pm
“They” are manipulated and brainwashed? That is rather funny considering it is the western world who keep telling everyone that Islam is a religion of peace. The majority of Muslims here and abroad agree with sharia.
 June 26, 2015 at 10:17pm
Well isn’t that just great; two children born out of wedlock. So much for family values.
BTW why is this even news? The Palin’s are yesterdays news. If Sarah can not keep her family in check why do the republicans keep idolizing her?
Their life has turned into a freak reality show, Too bad because I used to like her.
The only reason this girl ever was news to begin with was an attempt by the left to embarrass her mother the first time around.
thanks trilo. i thought i was the only one. when ever i talk to people about my dislike for the palins, i always get blamed for being a liberal. i cant stand that more than anything
Why do progressives keep idolizing tramps like the Kardashian's?
 June 26, 2015 at 10:09pm
Just wait until the government starts telling churches they must marry gay couples or loose their tax exemption. Then what will you say SC? Suck it up republicans your a relic?
Personally I can care less what two people do. It is when the government gets involved that I care!
