ran 2.9 miles
Today ends week forty-six of running against Obama. I ran 20.9 miles this week, averaging 2.99 miles per day.

I read an article from Reuters, by Andrew Quinn, today and can’t help but attempt the best way possible to express an analogy between real quotes from the article and outlandish possibilities of the world we all actually live in.

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton voiced strong U.S. support this weekend for Greece’s battle to overcome its debt crisis (a crisis created by the same unrealistic fundamentals that Barack Obama is currently attempting to implement in America), stating that Greece was taking the difficult steps required for future growth.

In words and in a common sense you and I better understand, Clinton agrees that Greece is making the difficult decision to further bury themselves in debt through the same means of borrowing and living far outside of their means that got them where they are to begin with.

“Americans know these are difficult days, and again we stand with you as friends and allies.”

In other words, we are actually trying to deconstruct our country in the same way you have weakened yours by designing completely unrealistic economic plans that lead to more and more borrowing and taxation until eventually we no longer have a country worth mentioning.

"I am not here to in any way downplay the immediate challenges because they are real. But I am here to say that we believe strongly that this will give Greece a very strong economy going forward," Clinton said.

By “this” Clinton means borrowing even more money to continue a broken system, not much unlike what our president is working for here in America.

Greece is currently hoping for a second European bailout package of nearly 110 billion euros to keep the nation up and running until the end of 2014. If you ask Greek Foreign Minister Stavros Lambrinidi about Greece’s deficit he will tell you that the government is determined to forge ahead. If that makes Greeks sleep better at night instead of rioting in their streets, which is more often the case, then job well done, Mr. Lambrinidi.

The people of Greece have been rioting and the government of Greece has been scrambling for a long time. Ultimately, their government gave their people an economic plan that was far too good to be true and completely unsustainable for any government. Sound like Barack’s America?

Earlier in this post I mentioned something about an analogy. A comparison between the disturbing reality Greece has arrived at and the disturbingly similar path America is being forced down against its will. This analogy, or comparison, is nothing that requires many powers of observation to make. Take your household, as a micro-economy, and apply your economic principles of common sense, which allow you and your family to thrive or at least stay afloat, to the actions our government makes to further disillusion us and to completely mismanage the money we give them and ask yourself if you could not do a better job. The economic rules and principles that apply to individuals, families, and even businesses transform into pure chaos once they reach the federal level.

1,124.5 miles to go.
