It’s Like a Leaking Radiator

The EU right now is like a car with a leaking radiator.

Some of you may have no idea what that means. For the non-mechanical, let me explain. The radiator is a large device usually at the front of the car that is just one major component in the engine bay. It has coolant continuously cycled through it. The coolant cools off in it and goes back into the engine, to keep the hot parts of the engine cool enough that they don’t begin to melt and seize together. Technically, you could run a car’s engine without a radiator, but in pretty short order it would overheat and the engine would be a piece of useless junk unable to ever run again.

Right now in Europe – the fiscal crisis in Italy, Spain and Greece are the leaky radiator. The EU keeps pulling over to pour more coolant into the radiator every couple months. In this case the “coolant” is billions of Euros. Eventually, because no one is making any move to actually fix the leak, they are going to run out of coolant. Once that happens, and no one is standing around that can be forced to throw billions into the leaky radiator, the engine will sputter for a short while longer then seize.

That was all the long set-up for this link:

Italy follows Spain on missing deficit target

To date, no one is fixing the problem. As many have pointed out in the news, the socialists are still on the rise across many European nations – that makes it even more unlikely that the structural problems of Europe will be addressed.

I would also recommend highly reading Pastor Brian’s take on this as well. He has been posting frequently, and I have been greatly blessed by his clear insights into scripture and grasp of economics and politics.

  1. Yes things certainly do seem to be as each day passes, more and more being put into place, that is for sure. And God knows who that driver is and we all feel will soon be on the scene more.

    Good News: Abby Lynn is off the IV this afternoon. She has been taking 2oz of formula and 1oz of Pedialyte and keeping it down. She will be going home in the morning if this continues. Jessica and Sharon, babysitter, second Nana, have been taught how to test blood. Endocrinologist wants to be on the safe side and have them testing her for next two weeks to watch for low blood sugars. Abby will see him again on May 4.
    Praise our Lord Jesus for watching over them again and thanks to all who responded in prayer for us. I do believe in prayer and that we should ask when we have needs and problems. Thanks again to all here


  2. Oh brother !! ( where is the rolling eyes little guy when you need him?)

    It’s the THIRD stone the Lord gave us last year brethren- ONLY THE BLOOD 🙂 Wow can you imagine having the arrogance to think we are able to add to that? or even worse save ourselves by doing something ( more) ? wait is that not the ultimate ….it’s best I leave than unsaid.

    Hbr 9:14 — How much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to God, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?

    Hbr 10:14 — For by one offering he hath perfected for ever them that are sanctified.

    Hbr 10:19 — Having therefore, brethren, boldness to enter into the holiest by the blood of Jesus,

    Hbr 7:25 — Wherefore he is able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by him, seeing he ever liveth to make intercession for them.
