Joe Biden Jokes About Blowing Hundreds of Millions on Collapsed Greek Welfare State

by RogueOperator

Joe Biden is sometimes funny in the “Ha, that’s just Joe being Joe” kinda way. Other times, he’s funny in the “I want to rip your hairplugs out one at a time!” kinda way. The latter is the case with the human gaffe machine’s latest offering:

U.S. Vice President Joe Biden joked during a visit to debt-choked Athens on Monday about bringing money to help Greece out of its deepest financial crisis in decades.

Introducing a member of his delegation during a meeting with Greek President Karolos Papoulias, Biden said: “This man represents the Treasury department. He’s brought hundreds of millions of dollars.”

His comments drew laughs from both the Greek and U.S. delegations.

Joe’s remark may not seem like a big effing deal, but it reminds one of Barack Obama’s “shovel-ready was not as shovel-ready as we expected” moment. It appears that among friends, Democrats aren’t as shy about dropping their guards, and letting people in on the big joke they are playing on American citizens.

    It’s sickening to see this from leaders that are entrusted with our future, talking about tossing money around as if it were monopoly money. I guess to them it is, but they will never have to do without!

      That’s the problem, Patricia. We have so-called leaders getting rich by looting and destroying America.

    Well how else should they get rich, like the Kochs or the hedge fund guys, the big bankers or the predatory lenders? Is it not true that worldly success is a sign of God’s favor?

      No, it’s not a sign of anything anymore. On the one hand, if a man can manage a company to be successful, then it should make everyone happy that buys his products. But if he gets rich through government, which is coercion and theft, then it is morally wrong. The rich do not prevent me from becoming wealthier, the government does. The rich do not take from me, government does. Meditate on that until something clicks.

        No, it is not a sign of God’s favor Matthew 6:19″Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moths and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal.” They are not seeking God’s favor in being thieves and stealing to money from others, and they are not seeking God’s favor in laying up treasure on earth. If they want to get rich, they should put the effort into work themselves instead of stealing the work of others, if they are trying to please God, they can not do it by disobeying His will!
