The frightening thing is that we haven’t even had a major financial crisis in Europe yet. So far, the powers that be have been able to keep Greece from defaulting and have been able to keep major banks all over Europe (NYSEArca:IEV) from collapsing.
But there are quite a few signs that the “moment of reckoning” for Europe is rapidly approaching….
Massive Resignations Have Started 2.0 (June C.)
Remember, this concluding financial war heated up in 2008 and we could surmise that the effects on the banking sector can only be felt within the last two years as they kept on kicking the can for as long as possible thru treasonous bailouts. Therefore, it is only fitting that, while we prefer to know the latest heads that rolled off the cliff, we might as well look back at the news that the banking sector have already known a few months ago but we are not simply aware of.
Though the Israeli newspaper Ha’aretz reported last week that Mr. Peres planned to tell Mr. Obama he did not believe Israel should make a unilateral strike against Iran, on Thursday Mr. Peres did not directly address that issue. Instead, he emphasized the importance of international solidarity against a nuclear Iran, which he characterized as a ``catastrophe.”
It was an important milestone for Mr. Zardari and his supporters, who only a few months ago were dogged by sporadic speculation of a military coup and threats from assertive judges and lurid political scandals.
Those dangers have not entirely abated, but the Senate victory showed that Mr. Zardari’s party — whose supporters not long ago warned of a “soft coup” — has greater staying power than its critics ever imagined.
It seems that all I hear these days are the once and future leaders of our country tripping over themselves to denigrate the work we do. I’m tired of it, and I’m fed up. I don’t claim to represent anyone other than myself, but I would bet that a fair number of federal employees feel as I do. We are lawyers, doctors, PhD students, economists, writers, electricians, construction workers, security officers and technology specialists. We are not a drain on the national economy; rather, we are a primary reason why the United States remains as great as it is.
This squeeze is one result of the states’ 25-year withdrawal from higher education. During and immediately after the last few recessions, states slashed financing for colleges. Then when the economy recovered, most states never fully restored the money that had been cut. The recent recession has amplified the problem.
GM To Suspend Production Of Chevy Volt (Jason K.)
Battery fires broke out in three Volts after safety crash-testing last year, but federal regulators determined that the car was no more risky than vehicles with conventional gasoline engines. GM and federal officials believe that the fires were caused by coolant leaking from damaged plastic casing around the batteries after side-impact test crashes. They say that they don't know of any such fires in regular use of the cars.
