The last website you can expect me to be spending time on is AlJazeera.net and possibly the last person I’m willing to read about is a Communist Wealth Fund Chairman, but…
whether it’s a case of ‘keeping the enemy close’ or just plain curiosity, I found myself watching and reading about the video below.
In the clip Jin Liqun simply but surprisingly states the obvious: the Euro-Union is unfair and doesn’t work.
He states and example where some Euro members have to work hard until they are 65 where other members in other countries stop work at 55 to enjoy a life of leisure. The inequity of the situation that allows some to retire early in one country while in another country, the members have to continue working to support and pay for the early retirees is a simple microcosm of the world order today: This is why it’s all falling apart.
Jin Liqun goes on to point out the obvious (at least to him and Richard Uzelac) that allowing some to live off the government dole while others toil away to pay for it all, breeds, ‘sloth and laziness’ in the early retiree countries. Duh. But God Bless you Jin Liqun. I still have no trust for Al Jazeera’s motives.
So Atlas is Shrugging in Europe, while the idiots at Occupy are pointing their crooked fingers at the ‘Rich’ who create the jobs and move our country forward. Hmmmmm, but that’s another story.
