Good information all around, but I did like this:
"Anyone who thinks Greece isn't the proverbial canary in the coal mine is in a coma. See if this sounds familiar: out-of-control spending, a bloated, self-entitled public service sector, a mountain of accumulated debt, trillions of dollars in unfunded mandates -- and a corrupt political class completely out of touch with the people. With precious few exceptions, what nation couldn't be plugged into the above description?" --columnist Arnold Ahlert
Sort of makes you pay a little more attention considering the US totally fits that description, to a tee.
Who do you suppose will come join hands to offer us assistance? Hmmmm...
