My imaginary friend left me. He said his other friends didn't believe in me.
Spending our way out of the recession is like drinking our way out of alcoholism.

Just think of it! Due to recent statement of European Commission Greece falsified statistical budgetary data over a distance of several years (!), holding back the truly disastrous state of own economy. But if such EU old-timer as Greece dares to doctor its financial books all the time in order to raise credits from our European banks, I can imagine what happens now in such EU newcomers (and countries of less economic development!) as Romania, Bulgaria, Slovakia or Baltic States! To what end, in heaven’s name, we have admitted these freeloaders to the membership of the EU, I wonder! It seems to me that it is about time to get everything under strict control in our common European House. Otherwise soon, use the US locution, our old and kind Europe will take a bath…
It is necessary to support relations as with Eastern Europe as with USA too. But we need to lead our own position.
Belarussia makes its own problems and solves them by it self.
There seems to be a little distance between posts here.

A capitalist EU just can't work. And that's why a capitalist EU isn't working! What we need is a socialist EU! We need a socialist EU where the workers are making the decisions instead of the bankers. We need a socialist EU with a planned economy.
