Except of course it isn't. Europe is falling apart and thanks to crazy globalization we find our fate inextricably linked to the fate of the Euro. It never occurred to me the European Union could end up eating itself alive, dying a slow painful death thanks to insane hidden debt aided and abetted by international bankers. It sounds like a plot form a cheap thriller. And yet...our standard of living depends on their ability to stem the debt. Which they cannot do so we slide slowly backwards into poverty just a little bit behind them.
It's at times like these that we find not unity but division. The sign says screw our constitution but the 33rd chapter of the Book of Psalms says something else:
Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD;
and the people whom he hath chosen for his own inheritance.
The LORD looketh from heaven;
he beholdeth all the sons of men.
From the place of his habitation he looketh
upon all the inhabitants of the earth.
He fashioneth their hearts alike;
he considereth all their works.
One has to wonder what Jesus would do on Wall Street. Join the money changers in the temple at number 85, or join the communist-hippie-unemployed losers in the street? There's a subject for a sermon, indeed.
