Europe

After the German government ratified the European Stability Mechanism, a permanent eurozone bailout package, opponents within Germany asked the nation's Constitutional Court for a temporary injunction against the ESM. The court will then rule on the constitutionality of the bailout scheme, possibly leading to a eurozone breakup.

Despite conventional wisdom and reports from the mainstream media, the present day actions of the Russian Federation, led by Vladimir Putin and Dmitry Medvedev, reflect little to no deviation from the strategic anti-Western polices set forth by the Soviet Union, during the Cold War.

Last week’s story here that Britain’s National Health Service euthanizes 130,000 elderly folks a year is no surprise.

Last year, a major report cited the socialist health-care agency for neglecting the elderly under its care. The neglect was so severe that doctors began prescribing drinking water to patients because they would otherwise die of thirst.

In other words, nothing changes in Britain, no matter how bad the abuses are. That is the lesson to be nationalized health care. Euthnasia, as well, killed the patients more quickly than simple neglect.

 

 

The British National Health Service (NHS) — the epitome of socialized medicine — may be prematurely ending the lives of as many as 130,000 elderly patients annually, a top physician told the Royal Society of Medicine in London.

Socialist political — and moral — values now prevail in France. The long slide of a once great nation continues as it continually repeats failed policies of the past.
