(Video) A sign of real Hope and Change?

Busy day today, but I wanted to share with you this latest Afterburner, in which Bill Whittle compares the choices made in recent elections in France and Wisconsin, and finds cause for hope in the Land of Cheese:

On a smaller scale Bill could also have taken heart from recent elections in San Diego and San Jose, where voters overwhelmingly approved reforms to public pensions in order to save their cities’ finances. The margins were large enough that I’m certain there were pensioners and near-pensioners who voted for reform, in contrast to the self-deluded voters of France and Greece.

When one thinks about it, this global debt crisis may yet be proof again of American exceptionalism.

We hope.

    The EU is a stupid idea predicated on the mistaken assumption people of a nation can so easily surrender their national identity for the sake of “the state”. It is unraveling. The bailout money being passed around has been in the hands of some other member previously and keeps being passed around in an ever downward spiral. The chief difference between us and them is they cannot simply print more euros on a whim. You cannot spend yourself rich.
