VIDEO: European Leaders Won't Let Greeks Kill 'Cash Cow'

    RALEIGH - Leaders enriched by the European Union's "cash cow" appear unwilling to let the new Greek government takes steps that would threaten the union's viability. That's despite the fact that the Greeks and EU leaders share similar socialist ideals.

    That's the assessment of Tony Papalas, an East Carolina University professor who specializes in Greek history. Papalas makes annual trips to Greece and has followed the country's government policies closely for decades. He shared his observations Monday during a speech to the John Locke Foundation's Shaftesbury Society.

    In the video clip below, Papalas discusses EU leaders' poor reception to the Greek government's recent policy prescriptions.

Yeah, just one Tony.

We do it because of spammers.

It is wise to look at other countries and changes taking place in Europe. I buy the analysis given here over their attempts to replicate America's united states. With all political philosophies there is both good and bad---depending on whether the public is served or the rich get richer!

Communism sounded great to the peasants of Russia / Capitalism sounded equally great as immigrants come here with a dream of going up in social class and wealth. Then GREED kicks in and we have the problems of INEQUALITY now growing in both Europe and the US.

Just like the Hebrew story of the Old Testament --- you have great times being God's Chosen People / bad times when it is perverted to a small ruling class of great wealth. God sent Prophets to tell the chosen kings of Israel they had messed up. God allowed an earthly King when people kept wanting one.

David was a great King / David failed miserably when he lusted after Bathsheba and had her husband killed by treachery / David had is own son, Absolon, revolt and be killed with the same treachery. TRUTH always rises, but can be lost over GREED and LIES. Read the deep agony of David in Psalms---he confessed his sins and went on with life. He was not perfect anymore than any of us. He was HONEST more than he was perverted by his human dark side.

It seems that 100 year cycles are the typical time frame.
