Yeah... just put that in the idea box. If the box if full, you'll be the one who will have to pay for the gasoline to torch it and buy a new box.

It's actually good for them to fight of their inflation problem and gives them a excuse to also print more money.

"Give Greece What It Deserves: Communism (Forbes)"

Yeah, while the ultra-wealthy can buy everything Greek for "pennies on the dollar".

The latest Krugman conspiracy theory is an incredible joke this morning.

HOW COULD WE NOT HAVE SEEN THE DEBEERS/GOLDLINE PARALLELS?!!! HAHAHAHA.

 Wow. thanks for the post. Krugman is completely un-wired. Another Nobel winner who is totally denounced reality in favor of his own lunatic world. Very funny. very impossible. very good reason to remember to never read the NY Times; none of their writers has any idea what reality looks like.

continue to use public money to finance Greece, but collect part of it through a tax on banks or other financial-system actors.

The "only put the tip in" plan.

This video of Ron Paul has probably been posted elsewhere on ZeroHedge already, but I wanted to make sure people saw it.  I apologize in advance if it is a duplicate post.
