Just imagine... you stood there with a hot dog stand... fully supplied...

YOU COULD MAKE A FORTUNE!!

 

I bet none of those crazy Greeks though about that one! NO WONDER THEY'RE BANKRUPT!

A gyro stand would be more better.

Don 't know how to spell it on my keyboard, but 'ta matia su theka tercera'

This means you need to watch out what coming, 14 eyes for the f'n ovree.

If you don't you might as well, malaka su!

Until they decided to just take the food or turn anger on the hot dog guy.

That seems to be the fearful assumption--that it's just mob action.  There's the Prime Minister calling it just mindless "rage."  Yet rage against the government and TPTB is hardly a mindless position to take.  I'm guessing that the common man has little to fear--people seem to know very well who the enemy is.

Would you please explain to me why you are junking Sudden Debt for his humor. It is true. The Greeks do little to sustain their country, this might help.

And gold being crushed tonight. Where are you people from? Some strange posts around here.

To me, just one more piece of this 1,000 piece puzzle fits into place.

He or She calls Greeks "crazy... NO WONDER THEY'RE BANKRUPT!" ...  US is in the same situation "BANKRUPT" and crazy if you will... And when this news officialy hits the media, how many of you will hit the streets and Washington??? We will se who are more patriotic Greeks, or Americans...

Vic Vinegar's picture

FYI: After news of the US bankruptcy 'officially hits the media', those who take it to the streets would best be described as idiots, not patriots.

Chicken_Little's picture

Vic, my exact feelings. When Washington DC is flooded with angry people, it won't be the right people advocating personal responsibility and a return to what the founding fathers set up. Instead it'll be the masses who got their government goodies cut off and they won't leave until someone is put in charge that promises to give them back. So I'm afraid we are headed to become another Argentina.

Stormdancer's picture

Right now gold is down a whole $1.32.  Nine one-hundredths of one percent.  Your definition of "crushed" certainly doesn't jibe with mine.

Strange posts indeed!

SilverDOG's picture

Monopoly,

And who(people of) sustains their country comparatively speaking?

Have you even been there?

1,000 pieces, are the distractions you have fabricated.

At Syntagma Sq. are a lot of souvlaki stands but Socialists ate all the money.

that's who they'd probably beat up.

 

FEDbuster's picture

Not to be outdone by Spainish, Greek or other euro jack boots, here is a video of D.C.'s finest busting up a Soul Train protest at the Jefferson Memorial.  Que up the old Leo Sayer song, "You make me feel like dancing" and enjoy:

Bob's picture

OMG.  This would never happen in Europe.  Incredible. 

FEDbuster's picture

They are going to dance again this coming Saturday, I am interested to see if the number of dancers grows.  The irony is it's at Thomas Jefferson's Memorial that this beat down by police is taking place for people "dancing". 

Bob's picture

Wish I didn't have to work next weekend.  I'll do whatever I can to promote it.  This shit must not stand.

SilverDosed's picture

I can only hope it grows. What DC has done with their "right to peaceably assemble" but only in certain areas is laughable. The fact that they can take you to jail at any time if you dont live within 50 miles from DC and hold you for longer than one night on no charges is scary. The fact that most 'merikans actually support this kind of police state is terrifying. At least syrian protesters are allowed to dance while our US corporate owned "security forces" shoot at them.

calls one to consider the "legal" possibility that DC is not within the jurisdiction of the Constitution.

see the choke hold on Kokesh?   notice how he consciously did not resist arrest?   remember the scene in FC when Tyler let the landlord beat the shit out of him?

brilliant tactics, absolutely brilliant.   hearts & minds baby.

Kokesh is a former marine and Iraq war vet, I think he could have resisted the entire crew of D.C. jackboots had he wanted to.  I sure hope this "dance club" protest continues to grow, if I was closer I would "put on my dancin' shoes".  Perhaps they should wear red, white and blue tutus next week?

Ben Probanke's picture

thanks, what would we do without zerohedge?

navy62802's picture

Speaking of which ... I haven't seen any reporting of these protests in any other media source (mainstream at least). But they don't surprise me ... Greek protests have been going on since I was there in March. And they've only continued to grow.

dolly madison's picture

Yeah, no coverage of this or the Spanish protests that are happening this week too.  I think they don't want us to see this.  It might give people ideas.

Collapse bitchez!

I thought labor day wasn't until September.  We've already had May Day.  Are you sure it isn't just Sting coming to town?

serotonindumptruck's picture

Well, if it was a lapse of memory, I can understand. Although you provided almost an hour with which to correct the faux pas, so what can be said?

Or perhaps there was an excluded </sarc> tag, and I am missing the humor?

disabledvet's picture

what do you mean am i being sarcastic? <sarc on all the friggin time>

Received.

Whiskey, Tango, Foxtrot.

Alarm bells are now sounding on Geithner's Blackberry.

He's probably on the phone now circling the wagons, calling all the world's central bankers, demanding that "swift and decisive action" must be taken before markets open on Tuesday.

In fact, I think the big shocker is that China is going to reverse its policy and start lowering interest rates again through stealth monetizations.  Meanwhile, still jawboning up the RR rate to save face.

HamyWanger's picture

Yup. The moment when goldbugs are about to win is precisely when the central banks/IMF "men" start their action after a few phone calls. And the can is kicked for a couple more years. 

Selah's picture

 

You are right about this one.

Gold will be crushed tonight.

I actually pity those who bought recently.

 

Bay of Pigs's picture

Really? How do you know that?

I pity those who don't understand anything beyond their day trading mentality.
