America, and the European Union, both have an addiction to spending. They like to spend more money then they will ever bring in. Like all addicts though, both America and the EU are hurting their families with their addiction. It will fall upon the children and grandchildren to attempt to pick up the pieces of this insanity being created by the addicted politicians. Unfortunately for them, the addicts will be dead when the bill comes due for their sprees. There Is No 12-Step Program For These Addicts, There Is Only Sobriety In The Form Of Firing Them To Head Home To Spend Their Own Ill Gotten Gains
Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner has been savaged in the United States for cheating on his taxes (you can buy a T-shirt to commemorate his tax dodging), but he’s becoming a punch line in the rest of the world for different reasons.
I wrote two years ago about Chinese students erupting in laughter after Geithner claimed the Administration believed in a strong dollar.
Now he’s getting mocked by the Europeans.
After Friday’s post about the absurdity of Obama sending his Treasury Secretary to lecture the Europeans, you can imagine my great amusement today as I read that the Europeans basically told Geithner to go jump in a lake.
…some eurozone finance ministers hit back at Mr Geithner’s comments, questioning the usefulness of his visit. “I found it peculiar that even though the Americans have significantly worse fundamental data than the eurozone, that they tell us what we should do and when we make a suggestion … that they say no straight away,” said Maria Fekter, Austria’s finance minister. Sweden’s Anders Borg said: “we need to make progress, but it’s quite clear the US has a big debt problem and the situation would be better if the US could show a sustainable way forward.”
Like all addicts, the addicted politicians cannot recognize their disease, they deny it, they lie about, and they move money around to hide it. They are doubling down on stupid and the only way forward to save our Country is to make sure these spendthrifts are stopped. The answer is easy – fire them.
