Government Officials IQ

By Bob Shannon

Having the responsibility of staying abreast of the economic happenings around the globe I am always on the watch for not just what is happening , but equally important–who are the people we entrust to make these vitally important decisions on our behalf.

Reading the February 2nd edition of Barron’s I came across the article on what is currently happening in Greece, that basket case of a once proud nation, often referred to as the cradle of civilization.

For those of you not following Greece as closely as I am , they had a national election a few weeks back where the Syriza party won a resounding victory. The leader of this political faction in Greece is one Alexis Tsipras, a real firebrand who ran on an anti-austerity program , vowing at one point in his campaign to pull Greece from the European Union, you know the same folks who lent Greece 269 billion recently to pull their sorry butts out of the economic drowning that is taking place in Greece.

Tsipras however isn’t the story, it is his appointment to the apparently important position of Finance Minister , one Yanis Varoufakis. In the article it states and I quote ” Varoufakis describes himself as a libertarian Marxist ? ” 

Now I won’t even attempt to explain or define just what a Libertarian Marxist is, or without incurring a self imposed stroke try to wrap my mind around such a definition.  It does however bring to mind that perhaps Mr. Varoufakis has a long lost relative in King William County serving on the Board of Supervisors who last year described herself as a “fairly moderate fiscal conservative”

The world just keeps getting smaller by the day.  And more stupid.

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
