    EU in fresh trouble as budget summit faces collapse

    AFP - The European Union looks set for fresh trouble this week as an extraordinary summit called to agree a long-term trillion-euro budget heads for an ugly showdown, possibly even failure.
    Already weakened by three years of economic crisis, the 27-nation bloc of half a billion people faces new trauma at the two-day summit starting Thursday after weeks of talks that have exposed stark divisions between pro- and anti-austerity nations, as well as between the haves and have-nots.

    Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

    I'm not sure why someone has to observe that all that all the economically central political entities of the world are facing upheaval and conflict due to the ongoing developments of the 2008 recession when that awareness should just be expected of any post.

    The only thing we have in common with Europe that has any bearing here is that we got involved with globalism.

    If you notice something good in yourself, give credit to God, not to yourself, but be certain the evil you commit is always your own and yours to acknowledge.

    There are half a billion people in the EU? I was surprised by that number.
