Rockstar!

08 Feb

Speaking of current European politicians:

Yanis Varoufakis has been Finance Minster of Greece for about two weeks.  In those two weeks, he’s made two major statements of truth:

1) Greece is bankrupt; and,

2) (As seen in the previous image), European politicians are clueless liars tending to destroy Europe.

 I’m trying to think back to the last time when any major US politician told two major truths in just two weeks.

I’m drawing a blank.

I never thought I’d live to see it, but Varoufakis is a politician whose fame rests less on his political affiliations than his tendency to tell the truth.  If he continues to do so, he could soon become the worlds’ #1 political Rockstar!

Varoufakis was born in Greece, college-educated in England, and taught economics in both Australia and Texas.

I’m wondering if he’s taken on US citizenship.  If he has, this rockstar could run for the White House in A.D. 2016.  If he hasn’t, who cares?  If we can elect a brainless Kenyan who delights in lying to be President, why not a Greek who’s not only intelligent, but even willing to tell the truth?

    See what happens when you elect someone who isn’t bought and paid for by the international Money Power (with Goldman Sachs taking the lead in Europe at the moment)?

    You get a politician who actually performs as advertised on behalf of his employers, the People, by putting their interests ahead of the nation-cannibalizing schemes of the Money Power.

    Perhaps, if We the People stopped wasting 35 hours a week watching TV and took our future seriously, we could make something like this happen in America.

    Of course, the anarchist Money Power, through its toadies in the media and on the internet, is doing everything possible to discourage any such popular consensus here in the States by pushing pessimism and “me first” bystander-ism in its place.

    Exactly. What a surprise, hmm? A politician telling the truth, doing what’s right rather than what’s profitable.

    The Powers That Be got a problem here. Not that what happens in Greece makes or breaks them. Rather, it’s the example Greece can set for the rest of Europe.

    The government of Greece is repeating what happened in Iceland by putting the “general welfare” of its own people first, the bankers can get in line. But Iceland is a small country. Greece on the other hand is big enough to serve as a template. Already it looks like the people of Spain and Italy will be putting their equivalents of the Syriza party into office in upcoming elections

    I wonder what the Powers That Be are going to do about it.

    Does anyone know of anyone around here (here being any of the states of the perpetual union) who has this kind of rockstar potential? If so, please let them be known.

      Al may have the potential, but it would surprise me to find out he has the desire. Plus, he doesn’t need the stress…he’s already doing what he’s supposed to be doing, in my opinion.

    Al, I presume you’re making a rhetorical point by suggesting he could run for president of the US. Obviously per the Constitution only a natural born citizen is eligible. Although, on the other hand, maybe you’re right and that’s not an impediment any more…

      Let’s open it up to prisoners! How about Kent Hovind? He understands natural law, the new world order, and has intimate knowledge of the IRS.

    I hereby predict Varoufakis will have a ‘change of heart’ when he has a ‘better’ understanding of the situation, or an ‘accident’ in the near future… or maybe a ‘personal’ issue that demands he step down. you get the idea. The only people in key positions who truly oppose the money powers end up dead or disgraced. Of course there are exceptions, but never in truly powerful posts.

      yes, but a few good men make a difference and that can be seen in the bible as well.

        That’s right, Joan, and the Bible doesn’t say a nation’s people can’t do what the Greeks have done, namely hire public servants to reverse the damage caused by an international banking mafia.

        Only the mafia itself, and its ratboy mouthpieces, want We the People to believe that, so 300 million of us merely wring our hands and watch scary YouTube videos while a tiny minority of criminals dismembers our nation.

        @ > yes, but a few good men make a difference and that can be seen in the bible as well.

        If you & Henry, by chance noticed, I gave scriptures. Please show me the same courtesy instead of just your opinions. How does the Bible DEFINE what a GOOD man IS? Scripture please. Thank you

        I just meant the really obvious ones who were leaders for their people like Moses.

      If you don’t trust the woman, don’t marry her. I made a good choice and I’m willing to risk a few burns rather than lead a solitary, unshared life.

        Add my sincere apologies for being insensitive to anyone who has been burned.

        Joan of Arc
        “Look,” says the Teacher, “this is what I have discovered: “Adding one thing to another to discover the scheme of things. While I was still searching but not finding I found one upright man among a thousand, but not one upright woman among them all. This only have I found: God created mankind upright, but they have gone in search of many schemes.” Ecclesiastes 7:27-29

        ESV > One man among a thousand I found, but a woman among all these I have not found. < Of course this means "overall" BUT, make no mistake about it, there are a FEW righteous men & women. Try finding a needle in a haystack.

    By the way, despite his current common sense comments, the guy is a self professed Marxist.

      I know. I’m not praising his politics, but I am praising his apparent tendency to tell the truth.

       
      • Henry

        February 10, 2015 at 2:53 PM

        I’m praising his apparent tendency to take his country back from Goldman Sachs et al.

        Of course, this will earn him plenty of hate from the international “Money Power” and its fellow travelers in the press and elsewhere.

    Well, re my Feb 9 post above…. he’s caved on every major issue and has “seen the light”. Toeing the line perfectly. More political theatre by controlled opposition. I get tired of being right about this shit. They are all scum; no real truth teller is ever allowed to hold a key/true power position.

    A month ago, I think the Greek Minister of Finance was legitimate. Today, I agree, he’s caving. Apparently he was more of a “one-hit wonder” than a Rock Star!
