(Video) Canaries in the Coal Mine

Call this a follow up to my worries that Cyprus is a warning and this morning’s post about America being in danger of becoming Europe.

In this latest “Afterburner,” Bill Whittle warns us that, with the European Union lurching from fiscal crisis to fiscal crisis, and with the US headed by an administration enamored of many of the same foolish policies as the Europeans, the members of the EU are serving as “canaries in the coal mine:”

Prediction is a fool’s game, so I won’t guess what’s going to happen, but I’d feel much more comfortable if this man were in charge.

    In Ecclesiastes 1:9 it says “…and there is nothing new under the sun.” Here is another passage from Deuteronomy 8:
    “[17]Beware lest you say in your heart, ‘My power and the might of my hand have gotten me this wealth.’ [18]You shall remember the Lord your God, for it is he who gives you power to get wealth; that he may confirm his covenant which he swore to your fathers, as at this day. [19]And if you forget the Lord your God and go after other gods and serve them and worship them, I solemnly warn you this day that you shall surely perish. [20] Like the nations that the Lord makes to perish before you, so shall you perish, because you would not obey the voice of the Lord your God.”

    Many interpretations hold that “other gods” means idolatry of worldly things, namely money.

    As tone deaf as this administration and government are (including the judiciary), a tuba band could be blaring in each individual ear and few, if any, would recognize it as a warning that disaster is about to happen…

    Canaries in the coal mine indeed. They perceive the problem as simply not having the right managers who, of course, would be them! What maroons.
