Welcome to the Realm™ - Version 5.0...

Who was it (de Tocqueville, maybe?) that said that a democracy was finished soon as its electorate figured out it could vote itself funds from the public till?

France, having decided that it wants its gummint cheese, merde!!!, has thrown out Nick Sarkozy and gone socialist.

French socialist Francois Hollande has won a clear victory in the country’s presidential election.

Mr Hollande – who polled just under 52% of votes in Sunday’s run-off – spoke of his pride at becoming president.

So long, Fwenchies, we hardly knew ye.


Oh, this  is choice.  Check out this headline (h/t Drudge):

Greek default would destroy faith in Europe: Merkel

Faith?  What  faith?

“We need to take steps we can control,” Merkel said, drawing a parallel between the Greek situation and that of Lehman, whose bankruptcy helped trigger the global financial crisis.

“What we can’t do is destroy the confidence of all investors mid-course and get a situation where they say that if we’ve done it for Greece, we will also do it for Spain, for Belgium, or any other country. Then not a single person would put their money in Europe anymore.”

What I wanna know is:  what fool is throwing money into that  socialist hellhole?

Seriously.  If you’re hemorrhaging money into that  pit, come see me.  I can put that money to far  better use.

I need a 2012 Mustang.  Convertible.  Black.  With a DVD/Blu-ray player.


Hell, I’ll even give you one of my t-shirts for your trouble.
