Monkey See, Monkey Do

Since a number of other libertarian oriented blogs have posted this Youtube video, I figured I'd do the same. It shows a member of the European Parliment, Daniel Hanna, chastising England's Prime Minister over his fiscal policies. Quite funny, from my point of view.

Not sure if the Prime Minister is actually present, or if the speaker is addressing him in general:

Actually, watching it a second time, it seems that he is talking directly to the Prime Minister.

Brown was there at around 2:56 into the clip, he is smirking and chuckling as he makes a note on his paper. Reminds me of...

I was wondering about the guy saying Britian's National Debt is 10%(?) of their Gross Domestic Product. I thought I remembered hearing ours was much more than that. Just found this figure:

The debt level is the debt as a percent of the total country's production, or GDP. Total economic output, or GDP, is $14.4 trillion. Therefore, the debt is now 73.6% of U.S. GDP, up from 51% in 1988.

I'm thinking they're using different measurements for determining debt level, so maybe comparing our 73.6% to their 10% is comparing apples and oranges? Seems to me I've heard various other figures for U.S. National Debt, as well.

Here's the web site I got my info from:

I love Capitalism.

First it transports money upward from the people who produce the wealth of the nation and puts it into the pockets of the capitalists.

Then every eighty years, the capitalists declare a crisis and they use that crisis as an excuse to steal even more money from those working people.

This time, though, they have sold us so far into oblivion, it will be a miracle if we can preserve our nation and our liberties.

So you see, I don't really love capitalism - because capitalism is turning traitor to our nation.
