Hillary Clinton: 'Never Waste a Good Crisis'

Who knew we could have a good crisis? Apparently Mrs. Clinton enjoys people suffering, losing their jobs or seeing their life savings disappear, so long as the Democrats can capitalize on it.

Just remember this folks: These people do not care about you. As long as they can gain more power, they'll be happy to see you penniless.
U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton told an audience on Friday "never waste a good crisis," as she highlighted the opportunity of rebuilding economies in a greener, less energy intensive model.

Highlighting Europe's unease the day after Russia warned that gas exports to the EU via Ukraine might be halted, she also condemned the use of energy as a political lever.

Clinton told young Europeans at the European Parliament global economic turmoil provided a fresh opening: "Never waste a good crisis ... Don't waste it when it can have a very positive impact on climate change and energy security."
This seems to be a recurring theme with the Obama administration, as former ballerina turned White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel uttered virtually the same thing a few months ago.
This opportunity isn't lost on the new president and his team. "You never want a serious crisis to go to waste," Rahm Emanuel, Mr. Obama's new chief of staff, told a Wall Street Journal conference of top corporate chief executives this week.

He elaborated: "Things that we had postponed for too long, that were long-term, are now immediate and must be dealt with. This crisis provides the opportunity for us to do things that you could not do before."
These people want you in crisis. The more control over your life, the more power they can gain.

Here's the ballerina discussing how to take advantage of a crisis:
