The Euro

Angela Merkel, chancellor of Germany.

I was watching Fareed Zakaria on CNN’s Global Public Square.  He was interviewing a bond trader about the Euro.  He discussed how Italy is the next country in trouble and it is even larger economically than Greece.

This man felt politically it is up to German Chancellor Angela Merkel to play Wagnerian heroine, and save the Euro.

Before you decide I hate all Germans, which is not true, think this, though.  Germany fought two aggressive World Wars.  Are they going to conquer Europe economically instead?  No need for a Wehrmacht.

At the end of the day thought, it is men and women in business suits who are making decisions that could put most of us in shantytowns.

Maybe I AM becoming a redneck in my old age, but this is from the limited place where I sit.


About tucsonmike

I am originally from Brooklyn, New York and now live in Tucson, Arizona. I have discovered a passion for writing. I have five books out now, with a sixth on the way. Take a look @ my book list: The Search for Livingstone An Affair of the Heart The Search for Otzi Griffith Justice in Space. Moriarty The Life and Times of a Criminal Genius Available now on Smashwords - Amazon and Barnes and Noble As to not bore my public with just "Buy my book," I am also interested in baseball, the outdoors, art, architecture, technology, the human mind and DNA. I learned Ashkenazi Jews, of which I am one, have to lowest rate of Alzheimer's in the world. Therefore, I treat my brain as a muscle needing a workout. I enjoy good food, flirtation, beautiful women (I am happily married for thirty years), so just flirting ;) I was considered autistic when I was young, trying to figure out if I have a mild form of Aspergers and learning from that. That is for future posts. You can also see I love history. Enjoy my sarcastic silly look at the world, and making History more interesting than a textbook.
