Want to learn how Europe got into the mess, they are in?

Watch this entire video, you'll be the wiser for it:




Funny. But at the same time, it's quite sad when you think about it.

That's real funny, even if a bit too real.

It's a dry routine to be sure. But the Monte Python style wit captured the true essence of satire, as it was meant.

McCloud summed it up well. It is truly scary. We genuinely are on the edge of complete economic meltdown.

Private payrolls rose by 41,000, Labor Department figures showed today, trailing the 180,000 gain forecast by economists. Including government workers, employment rose by 431,000, boosted by a jump in hiring of temporary census workers. The jobless rate fell to 9.7 percent from 9.9 percent.

95% of job creation last month was government jobs and a fair chunk of those were temp Census workers.

The day is coming when we get smacked in the face with the real fact that if more than half of our workers are hired by the government (where we are now) there is nobody to pay the taxes to pay these government workers and the house of cards colapse.

Which were hired, laid off, and then rehired to pad the stats even more.

The Chicago way.

SO, that's the ANSWER!

Just have every country retire every other country's debt, then nobody has those big debts hanging over them!

WHY NOT? :-) But, seriously..!~!
