US Following Socialist Europe on the Way to the Bottom

Liberal POV, you always are asking "What's wrong with European Socialism.

What's wrong? Entitlements. Keep your eye on Greece.

Liberal POV said...

Blogger

Are the people of Europe healther and happier than Americans, Do they have the equivalant of Fox News or Rush to dumb them down?
Do the Europeans feel it necessary to pack a weapon at all times?
What percent of Europeans work for less than a living wage? How many Europeans don't have health care coverage?

The Europeans don't have the luxury of their undocumented residents being the good family values Christians like the ones coming to the US from Latin America.

Liberal POV said...

How was the Tea Party? Did you have a lot of grumpy old over weight white folks most on Medicare complaining about government run health care?

POV asks-"Are the people of Europe healther and happier than Americans,..."


Only healthier and happier than you.

Liberal Socialist Sheep Said:

"Are the people of Europe healther and happier than Americans"

No, I have spent considerable time over there, and they are not "more happy" than folks from the US. Girls from Australia, Great Britain and the rest of Socialist Europe still want to come to the United States. Why is this?

Take a look at European's teeth. They are crooked, dirty and unhealthy. How can this be with the European's great health care system? Uh huh, it ain't so good.

"Do they have the equivalant of Fox News or Rush to dumb them down?"

So freedom of speech is now a dumbing down of America. So you think we should only listen to what you want us to listen to? The "God" effect is in full effect with POVTard.

"Do the Europeans feel it necessary to pack a weapon at all times?"

They feel the need now. After Britain banned private ownership of guns, their violent crime rates have shot up 500%. Many places in Britain, especially Manchester, rival the crime rates of DC and Chicago. How do you explain the meteoric rise of crime in the wake of gun confiscations. The same thing has occured in Australia. How do you account for this o great one?

"How many Europeans don't have health care coverage?"

How many die because they don't recieve adequate health coverage. How come people from all over the world come to the US for health care (Johns Hopkins and Mayo Clinic are famous for this) when they could also go to Britain?

"The Europeans don't have the luxury of their undocumented residents"

Europeans don't have the luxery of a federal government that allows criminals (illegal aliens) to come, unabated into their country. Most European countries have extremely strict immigration policies. Remember the Shangen Agreement in which the European Union closed its borders to foreigners? Uh huh.

In other words, you don't know what your talking about. You are one of those Europop elitests who think of Europe in the terms you want it to be, not what it really is. LOL!!

So easy to tear a liberal down isn't it?

Your ole pal

Stings don't it?

A bit off topic, but does anyone have any information pertaining to Grandpa Jone's time spent on Cary's Flat? Apparently local legend has it that Grandpa Jones was stealing folk music from the Gragg family and taking it to the Grand ole opry where he made a mint. In fact, Jones was reputed to have bought a cabin on Anthony Creek Road just below Cary's Flat so he could be near the true musical geniuses of the mountains.

As the story goes, Grandpa Jone's cabin sat at the botton of a huge waterfall. A young girl, staying with the married Jones, fell off the waterfall when she became intoxicated. It was quite the scandel for Grandpa Jones.

A Google Search of these events turns up nothing, and I was wondering if anyone had any information on the music stealing Grandpa Jones and the young girl he killed.

Thanks

"Do the Europeans feel it necessary to pack a weapon at all times?"-POV

Yes, edge weapons are HUGE in Europe. Guess why.

The problem with edge weapons,is they are not like handguns."God created man, Sam Colt made them equal."

POV, you are batting your usual 0 on this one.

Sarkazein said...

POV, enough's enough, I want a big fat "OK, I WAS WRONG" from you on Europe. Show me you are not a software program of incorrect comments and answers.

Honest Debate said...

Johnny Rico you wrote: "So easy to tear a liberal down isn't it?"

Yup, and you just did...point by point. Sark was right when he wrote:
"POV, enough's enough, I want a big fat 'OK, I WAS WRONG' from you on Europe."

That's the part that's impossible.

The 500 pound gorilla in the room is the fact that Europe could not exist without America. When we become another Europe the terrorists win.

Sarkazein said...

EUROPE has a HUGE weapons problem. Here is a point by point article POV will not be able to retain.

Honest Debate said...

Johny Rico,

First, let me give the obligatory apology to blogger for jumping off so early in an important thread.

I don't know the anything about the scandals but he was a nice guy. I once did a scene with Grandpa Jones for a video my band did called "Where's the Food Yall?". I haven't thought about it in years and years. You guys stir up all kinds om memories on a regular basis.

I'm not sure when it was exactly but Bush 41 was President. He hated broccoli and we worked into the song. Rhyming brocolli with "choclaty" was my greatest literary achievement. The song was a cross between country (the chorus was to the tune of Hank Williams "Jambalaya")and rap. Crap.

I don't have a digital copy, just an old VHS tape and am not sure I could find that. I searched online, but no. But I did find this. Grandpa Jones appears at the bottom of page 5 to the top of page 6.

Tell us about your Tea Party for Medicare recipients opposing a government run health care system?

Don't you ever feel a little silly?

Liberal POV said...

Blogger, HD, and Tea Party Mob

Notice most on the happy Map were countries with a social safety net including the USA with the safety net for seniors.

Pov writesNotice most on the happy Map were countries with a social safety net including the USA with the safety net for seniors.

POV, they are also the same countries that are now unable to produce enough to sustain their economies. They can't even afford militaries to defend themselves.

Sarkazein said...

Keep moving the goal posts Liberal POV. He is defeated in his comment... he makes it a different comment.

Blogger said...

Liberal, how happy do you think they will be when daddy has to tell them “That’s it. Party’s over. We’re broke.”

We already have the answer to that in Greece. The children pitch temper tantrums.

By the way Lib, enough already about my social security and medicare. I paid into those programs with my hard earned money probably longer than you have been alive. They were suppose to have put it in escrow for me and return it with interest. If I end up getting more than they owed me, lots and lots of my friends have died now. They don’t mind if I get theirs.

"By the way Lib, enough already about my social security and medicare. I paid into those programs with my hard earned money probably longer than you have been alive.:

Don't you find it silly that you protest a government run health care system when you're so well cared for by just such a system?

You don't think young working families deserve a similar system?

Blogger said...

Lib you tell me how the government is going to pay for health care for 30 million more people who have not put any money into a pot, and still continue my medicare which I did pay for.

Sarkazein said...

POV did not write-"According to Adrian White, an analytic social psychologist at Leicester who developed the first "World Map of Happiness"


POV, when you are looking up the word intent, look up the word subjective, then look up another liberals opinion of the world.

Liberal POV said...

Blogger

When the first recipients of Medicare started receiving benefits they had not paid into the system.

This will be cheaper than the wars you think we have plenty money for.

Medicare Will Go Broke By 2018, Trustees Report.


Boy, that worked good.

Liberal Socialist Sheep Tea Party Wannabe Lemming,

I see you were unable, once again, to answer to any of my points. The Conservative hegemony on this site has you nailed tight. Does it feel suffocating to have every word shoved back down the well worn throat from whence it came? LOL!!

Thanks for the information on Grandpa Jones. I had been wondering if this was local legend or what. Some of the old-timers swear to it, but you knew the man.

Blogger makes an interesting point concerning Medicare and social security. We have all paid into them. The government has mismanaged them, and borrowed (stolen) from them.

Are these really entitlement programs or were they programs into which people were forced to participate and in which the government can no longer meet its contractual obligations? We the people were screwed by being forced to use a government program.

Look at the one of seven Sting houses (comment above). In the driveway there are three vehicles, 2 out of the three are SUVs. Liberal suckers are following that complete hypocrite.

You mean like the time the President of the United States asked her to go to Afghanistan for a woman's rights thing, but she declined saying she was too busy grubbing money to go?

You might want to read Obama's statement about making enough money... then comment.

"Greece. Portugal, Spain (20% unemployment), ALL on the edge of financial collapse with the USA just denying ours better. Too much government wanting to do too much."

What we really have is a failure in the current Capitalist system.
Capitalism is failing to provide for the masses, because of greed and corruption within the system.

What reforms are the most profitable capitalist will to take to save the system?

Much of Greece. Portugal, Spain and Iceland's problems can be traced to unregulated, and uninforced regulations in the trading markets or Capitalism.

Will Republicans work to reform Banking and Wall Street?

Liberal POV said...

Sunshine ( Sark )and Blogger

More on the failure of our current Capitalist system.

Remember Enron? Remember the Enron joke about the difference between California and the Titanic? "At least when the Titanic went down the lights were on."

California is the world's 8th largest economy taken down by one corrupt American corporation with the help of Citi Bank's current Management and others on Wall Street.

The current Republican governor was elected because on Enron's faking power outages to raise rates. That'sthe results of a broken capitalist system. Will Republicans be part of the solution to fix the problem or lobby for more of the same.

Wait we already know they will blame house painters Juan and Jose for destroying the American and the world economy. Wow what fools it would take to believe that!

Libreralproverbs18:2 conveniently forgets all these countries are socialist to varying degrees.
