Unemployment Benefits For 3 Years in Europe?

CNBC mentioned today (2/26/10) that up to 3 years of unemployment benefits is available in the Euro-Zone.

The EURO is falling (may even fail) because these countries have lost their sovereignty.

So they end up bailing each other out.

This is Socialism on a large scale and I believe it will fail.

Eventually these countries will want out to regain their independence.

The U.S. still has a way to go before we become like Europe since these countries were socialistic even BEFORE the EURO conversion.

We still have a thread of liberty left, but it's getting harder to see every day.

The more sovereignty you relinquish, the more you are forced to pay for lazy parasites bent on transferring wealth from one class (yours) to another class (theirs) as their reason for existence.

Thanks, for this information

it is good to know what is going on in the rest of the world.

Are WE helping the EU fund this through the IMF and World Bank?

It's entirely in the realm of possibility that the MILLIONS we give the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and World Bank is funnelled to EU for programs like this.

Yeah

almost certain

It's true

I know some german civilians who are on the books at work but are out due to health reasons and they still get full benefits and haven't been to work in years it takes forever to remove these people from the books, some are legitimate and some are questionable in my opinion. They finally caught one guy abusing the system but it took nearly 5 years!
I also know that you can stay on welfare in the Dutch system for quite some time, 3 years is not unusual. The socialist system is broken, I mean they tax the @%#$!! out of you over here, especially in the Dutch system!

Fear knocked on my door and Faith answered!

There you have it.

Proof from someone you know.

If you take away the impetus for people to look for work, they simply won't bother.

Unfortunately it's human nature and not many of us could resist the temptation.

I plead guilty myself. A few years ago I was laid off for 4 months before being called back.

But partly out of bitterness over the unemployment program (it costs employees on our paychecks) and partly because it was the easy road, I used it.

But I had to calm down that little voice in my head telling me it was a little less than moral.

And believe me, if unemployment wasn't there, I'd have been off my rear-end and getting a new job. Period.

Unemployment was meant to be a bridge to another job but it's way out of hand now. Two months should be plenty, but even that assumes we have a RIGHT to a job.

Last year the Obama administration added 33 weeks to state programs for a total of nearly 2 years of unemployment available.

First to go?? Italy or

First to go??
Italy or Germany....
If Germany goes, so will France.
If Italy goes, so does Ireland and a whole host of others.
Italy for sovereign reasons, France and Germany for monetary reasons...

Germany hurts because

it has to carry the load of others on its back.

First goes...

Greece
Portugal
Belgium
Ireland
then the big ones if they try to save them. Then the world. If we stay out of it we may be able to adjust. But we(USA) won't. Then there will be a need for order and a new currency. You all know the story ;)

Austria fought it hard too.

But was eventually forced in I think.

True. And other countries are unhappy.

England knew better than to ever submit in the first place though I don't know if that includes other British Isle countries.

It's a matter of time before the EU disintegrates.
