Again thank you for supporting me. What brought all this on. Note; income here in Lee is within the perimeters to Sweden. Alas they do not have to pay for Universal Health Care, Universal Education and superior safety nets. It is already been deducted. Where in I had to pay for 2 college graduates and their health insurance and supply subsides when they could not find work during the Great Recession. Unemployment ran out.“OR” they could not get it due to some technicality. Now if I hadn’t have to pay for those items how much better off I would be now. That is the Price Of Inequality..
No, your correct, Sweden just has to worry about the rest of the "Euro" participants taking them to bankruptcy, " Greece, Italy, Turkey, Spain, Belgium and the Baltic’s which could drag the whole system into failure once again." Could it possibly be that you were SUPPOSED to help YOUR own? Why should I or anyone else throw into the pot to help your offspring when you give me what in return? Nothing, I don't have offspring. I don't want to lighten your load and make mine heavier. Your correct, THAT'S inequality.

Here you are partially correct. Sweden does have concerns for the failure of the EU. No doubt as does the rest of the world. What happens will have ripple effects to all financial institutions. Some more sever than others. Keep in mind that the EU is not supreme player in the Liberal International Free Trade Markets. There lost will be assimilated by outside competitors such as the Asian Markets, Indo China, China, Japan etc. to make a profit from their lost. They will require to reorganize to get back into the Markets for competition, to progress. Perhaps they will identify austerity as a major contributor to their failure and will take appropriate action or not. Austerity will be the measure by which will determine their survival. Orthodox Communism discovered their flaw of inability to compete in the Liberal International Free Trade Markets and have taken steps to remedy that. EU’s austerity will have to do the same or face further regression in their world status.
AS to the rest of your comment on distribution of inequality. I have provided numbers that would benefit, yes even the lone hermit in the woods, if inequality were to be more justified in its distributions. Now I will provide a video chart which may be more helpful in comprehending inequality as it is presently within the USA. We take care of that problem and the might of the USA would be undisputable through out the world and its Free Markets. Yes even here in the USA Austerity has taken its toll. Diminishing our strengths to compete effectively.

Your ramblings have proven others on this forum correct in their opinions of you. You sound like a half baked philosophy professor who should have TRIED to teach Current Affairs. Really, I read and reread your crap hoping to find the basis and it's just not there. Best of luck to you. "Hermit" signing off.

Admitting your inability to comprehend is honorable. You admit it where a few on this thread remain in their boxes. I noticed, as it is with few on this thread, you do not read the comment in its entirety and then half bake replies follow. That would have serious effect on your lack of comprehension.
Using your numbers note only 15.5 % 0f the world trade commerce, with 14.9% in exports and largest importer of 16.1%. As I stated a small ripple. They will continue to trade and import but severely reduced. China would be one of MANY to benefit from that EU disaster. Picking up their lost exports and continue to import to them.
Now these numbers represent France, Germany and the Netherlands who would continue with their businesses without picking up the debt of the failed EU. They are the economic backbone of the EU and so trade would have negligible effect on the rest of the world If anything, it will help bolster trade in other sectors of the world. Simple as that.
“Lone Hermit” was one sector of the distribution populace, as was his majesty’s throne. Extremes of two finical sectors and styles of living. That you take the hermit personally and not the majesty or something in-between is interesting. Humorous to say the least. It also indicates you did not go to the link provided. Once again answering to my comment without reading it. Just choose emotional triggers to guide you? LOL

Gee, it looks like the "Democrat in Charge" fell flat on his face in Russia, much to their glee, in trying to convince the world to bomb Syria. Of all places to look weak, it makes one wonder if it wasn't planned. "STRELNA, Russia — President Obama ran into an impasse on Friday in his bid to rally international backing for a military strike on Syria as world leaders wrapped up a summit meeting here remaining deeply divided over the right response to what the Americans have called the deadliest nerve gas attack in decades." "After a dinner debate that lasted into the early morning hours of Friday, Mr. Obama emerged with a few supporters but no consensus, as other leaders urged him not to attack without United Nations permission, which is not forthcoming. Instead, the president had to resign himself to generalized statements of concern over the use of chemical weapons." Now, any other time the chants of something about Bush and WMD's, would be deafening. Now, it's crickets.

Here we are just a few years down the road from Libya. Obama asked for funds to beef up security to the foreign embassies. Tea Party and republicans dysfunctional leadership replied with a resounding NAY ! Embassy’s attacked and the first to accuse Obama? You got it, the same one’s that denied the funding for embassy security ! Now lives are being lost due directly to Tea Party negligence.
Presently they are seeking to prevent Obama from chastising the use of chemical war fare tactics. Once again Tea Party and some dysfunctional republicans are NAYING. When the next chemical attack occurs OH how they will laminate their wailings upon Obama for failing to do something. This Republican Tea strategy has been played over and over again like a broken record. Repeating and repeating stuck in a rut. At the cost of thousands of innocent lives to be martyred for their egotistical dysfunction leadership.
Home of the Brave ! HA ! This republican leadership has and is illuminating to the world that America is the land of the WIMPIES !

Typical right wing nut. Obama wants to contain chemical weapons from being used and you go off all hyped up about another war! Dysfunctional minds follow Dysfunctional leadership.

"Dysfunctional minds follow Dysfunctional leadership."
It's about time that you realized what your problem is.

Do you see anyone else using chemical weapons other than Syria?.
Typical leftist hysteria. Who cares what the Muslim bastards do to each other?. I know I don't.

One more thing you leftist dunce. 90% of the American public are against getting involved in Syria. Know what that means?. Democrats along with Republicans actually agree that the whole thing is a stupid idea. Your Terrorist-In -Chief still hasn't got the message.

As it is in Syria so it is here with republicans. Ignore it at your peril.
In Syria; It all comes down to. Do we contain the proliferation of Nuclear, Bio, and Chemical weapons of mass destruction or not?
Ignore their use with no reprimand and we do so at our peril.
Senators that oppose the strike are calculating this chemical attack is a one time scenario. If they are wrong then all of the following martyred deaths blood and causalities will be on their heads. Increase proliferation, of weapons of mass destruction, will haunt them as well as to the innocent which will soon be their victims. Including ourselves.

Keep squawking you stupid chicken hawk. You just might get your wish yet. When WWIII is ignited, you can sit back and enjoy the carnage and/or get a taste of it. It really shouldn't matter to you anyway as you are already older than dirt.

American foreign policy has been a complete disaster for the past 50 years. Why spoil a perfect record now?.
