Although the women of the United States are confined within the narrow circle of domestic life, and their situation is, in some respects, one of extreme dependence, I have nowhere seen woman occupying a loftier position; and if I were asked... in which I have spoken of so many important things done by Americans, to what the singular prosperity and growing strength of that people ought mainly to be attributed, I should reply, To the superiority of their women.

Blackwater to Patrol Greece?!

According to this post at Lew Rockwell, a waitress at a Greek restaurant says that her daughter and son-in-law were coming over from that austere country. She said that middle-class folks were digging through trash cans for food.

The post further goes on to recount that everyone but the usual suspects with the Swiss bank accounts are getting totally shafted. Riots are gettting more dangerous. The native police can't be trusted because their salaries have been cut and they, too, are royally ticked off. The solution? Call in the Mercs!

The Greek government has hired Blackwater, which now operates under the name Academi, (seems like they change their name every two years or something) plus five other such merc companies to keep order. Read: keep the mundanes from slitting the throats of those who never seem to go to jail, never lose any money, and always have JP Morgan et al on speed dial.

Coming to us soon? I hope not -  spread the word about the playbook, and they'll be forced to use another one. Hopefully not the mousepox scenerio...
