Back in EUSSR?

There are more than a few similarities between the newly forged federal Europe and the former Soviet Union.

It is quite ironic that only 30 years after the fall of the Berlin wall and the end of Soviet communism, a new tyranny has risen, predicated on the same failed centralist political tactics tried and tested in the old Soviet Union. Just ask Russia how that worked out. And yet with the recent debt crisis spreading across Europe, the problem with centralism as a model has been illustrated yet again, since it is now apparent to all watching that a supranational central bank that sets uniform interest rates and controls the liquidity of an entire continent is unable to contain major dislocations and financial disruptions in member states. The financial contagion that resulted from European loan defaults, most notably in the case of Greece, has prompted calls for yet more centralization.

Herman Cain: Jesus Was The Perfect Conservative

Whether one votes for Herman Cain in the primary or in the General election, he certainly is a fun filled candidate. A wonderful Christmas story from Herman Cain is getting more mileage these days:

“Jesus helped the poor without one government program. He healed the sick without a government health care system. He [fed] the hungry without food stamps. And everywhere He went, it turned into a rally, attracting large crowds, and giving them hope, encouragement and inspiration.

For three years He was unemployed, and never collected an unemployment check. Nevertheless, he completed all the work He needed to get done. He didn’t travel by private jet. He walked and sailed, and sometimes traveled on a donkey.”

Most know that Jesus was obviously not a socialist for he taught that God who was even against government mandated job killing minimum wage.
