    That´s right and it´s bot clear why this idea is even being discussed.

    Who can America borrow money from in order to give it to the Europeans?

    He's firefighting over there to protect Americans from when it comes over to your door. You think it's bad now? Get any savings out of a commercial bank and into a Mutual.
    Don't work out, work in.

    Never eat anything that's served in a bucket.

    When what comes to America´s door?

    Would you mind elaborating on that thought?

    European problems have frequently come to American doors, largely through Americans (and many others) involving themselves in made in Europe problems. And Americans particularly have never been appreciated in Europe for the their efforts. Instead anti-Americanism ruled.

    Americans should look after their own country and interests, as should Canadians and Brazilians, without involving themselves yet again in another European debacle.

    As far as I can tell there is no discussion about the US bailing out Europe. Obama has said that the Europeans can and should deal with their own problems. His administration is simply offering the benefit of its experience and suggesting actions that they believe would help. They're also attempting to insulate the U.S. from Eurozone fallout to the extent possible (i.e., not much). Can you direct me to the sources indicating that we are providing cash assistance?
