One word -- ICELAND
seems they are doing just fine, thank you
Sounds like the PM will be next to be removed from office.
Yeah but luckily the world's leaders have come together to release 'QE Black', an alternative form of economic stimulus that will save the world.
It's for profit, not QE. They will not push oil prices down. Oil prices will trend higher because that's what creates "inflation", more so than money printing itself.

Only to be chained in poverty

Yes, if Greece dares default, there will be tanks on the streets. German Panzerdivision tanks taking over Athens.
I'd like to see that fat fucking politician thrown out a window and hit the pavement but the widows are not that big. Jmo :)
Yeah, why would anybody listen to that fat prick?
Can he even get up out of his seat?
Stick an apple in his mouth and have a global pork roast. It would solve world hunger.
Pangalos is just big boned.
And the Greek economy is just in a transitory soft patch.
a.k.a. Jabba the Fuck
"As for austerity, something tells us Pangalos will be the first casualty should Greece finally truly implement some "leaner" policy measures."
LOL!...by the appearance of that belly, an austerity salad or two is in order.
Surely, they have food SWAT teams there as well ;-)
Word has it the only way he can wipe his ass is with a rag on a stick.
It's that damn bird's fault.
Terminal velocity bitchez.
The quintessential Dogbertian "Wool-coated glob of fat."
It's time to get this party started. Default, get involved, and replace the system. It's headed to default anyway.
The global economy will soon be a land of ICE, or credit FREEZING.
They'll pass this shit if they have to drink a million gallons of
fresh baby blood to do it. I don't know man, right now, as crazy as
it seems, i think the governments of the world are prepping for
2012, or Elenin, or Nibiru, or Earth entering sometime of asteroid
belt where the comets come fast and furious.
I know it sounds goofy, but the alignments with the sun and Earth
cause some massive Earthquakes, there are 33 active volcanos at
the moment, and the M-i-ss-i-ss-i-ppi is rising like Charlie Sheen
at a national high school cheerleading competition.
Oh, and add in there, we all know that the real problem isn't Greece
defaulting and falling off the planet, or even the banks exposure to
their toxic crap, but all the Credit Default Swaps that are ticking
like time bombs. I'm going to piss on some dominos and pick a number,
oh joy, FIVE TRILLION if/when Greece defaults.
Who insures this shit? The little people ain't allowed to know.
And, the dickhead Republicans don't want us ever to know,
and the pussy democrats are too busy buttfucking each other
I don't give a shit if you're athiest, christian, buddhist, catholic, hindu,
jedi or Norse.
We're smack dab in the middle of Armaggedon/Ragnorak/Birth Pangs of a New Age
The BLACK MONOLITH showed up as Kubrick predicted,
and humanity used it to create CDOs, CDS, and a bevy of bogus
bullshit financial instruments.
Jesus Christ went all KUNG-FU ass kicking on the bankers, currency
demons in the markets back in the day, now we've got our Capitalist
American christians saying "Who can fight the Beast? BUY NETFLIX!"
Times, they've changed.
Get ready, cuz this ain't funny, my name is THOR and I'm about
to kill fake money.
God Bless Everyone
Whew. I should be okay. I am a Catholic, not a Christian, so I shouldn't have to worry.
I was at Target earlier today. I saw a lot of fellow Americans that are fat enough to qualify for Deputy Prime Minister of Greece.
Did anybody else get an ad at the top for dating Greeks? Will we be seeing mail order brides from Greece coming to the U.S., en masse, like the Russian brides circa 1994?
The first girl I met on Adult Friend Finder was Greek. She was hot and crazy in bed.
At the risk of generalizing it is erie how similar the Southern Europeans are.
I was waiting for a testimonial before joining... thanks.
"The BLACK MONOLITH showed up as Kubrick predicted..."
And don't forget Arthur C. Clarke...but I catch your drift. Remember in the sequel 2010, penned by Clarke, the monolith took over Jupiter, introduced water and air to the Jovian moons and lit Jupiter into our solar system's second star.
Interesting parallel in that the banksters are attempting to light their own Jupiter, with their own air, money, etc., right here amongst us. Also, as a very strange parallel to our times, the banksters...
"... regard the star Lucifer (formerly the planet Jupiter) as their primary Sun, referring to ours as "The Cold Sun". Though their settlements are concentrated primarily in the hemisphere of Europa which is constantly bathed in Lucifer's rays, some Europans have begun in recent generations to explore the Farside, the hemisphere facing away from Lucifer, which is still covered in ice. There they may witness the spectacle of night, unknown on the other side of Europa, when the Cold Sun sets."
And remember also the dire warning in the end of the film...
""ALL THESE WORLDS ARE YOURS EXCEPT EUROPA. ATTEMPT NO LANDING THERE."
Kinda gives you the creeps, eh?
LOL, The moon europa! Thanks for making me remember this great movie. I always liked the second part of the monolith-saga the most.
Sound effects and still shots of this movie give me the creeps every time I think about it.
Wow, the ending of this movie makes a lot of sense now. I always giggled about the idea of naming a moon after a continent... who decided that???
Did you know that Arthur C.Clarke also wrote a third part? 3001- The last odyssey? Maybe this has all the answers we need...
Europa was a Phoenician princess in Greek mythology, whom Zeus fell in love with and, in the form of a bull, he stole her away and carried her to Crete. He assumed human form and took her as a lover. Galileo named the four moons of Jupiter that he could see after four of Zeus's lovers. Jupiter was the Roman name for the king of the gods, the Greeks called him Zeus.
Ok, makes sense.
But since when did they start calling this continent "europe"?
And what was it called before?
Did/does europe have other names?
Google it if you're really interested.
A neat aspect of Clarke's four books, 2001, 2010, 2061 and 3001 was that some of the plotlines did not follow through in all of the novels. Clarke explained that this was because all the novels occur in separate but parallel universes.
it's as though TPTB knew nothing would matter post 2012 -- so just stitch it together until ...
Exactly what I have been saying here since last year.
Something else also came to mind yesterday, while listening to some political news:
The current [minority] government in Australia seems hell-bent on losing the next election (due by mid-2013 at the latest) -- firstly, by implementing a very expensive, government owned, taxpayer funded, fibre-to-the-door, "national broadband network" to replace the perfectly good existing privately owned wireless, cable and copper network. They've apparently even signed a deal with the current major broadband provider to hand over their fibre and copper infrastructure to the government and cease to provide any wireless broadband after the handover!! How's that for a perfect setup for government controlled information distribution to hardwired IP addresses?!
On top of that, this minority government (supported to a majority only by the Greens) is also looking to ram through a very unpopular 'carbon tax' against strong opposition from the electorate. And they won't be taxing the coal miners either -- because that would cause coal buyers in China to have to pay the costs! Nooooo! They have a much better idea ... tax the electricity producers so that they can pass the costs onto the Australian consumer! Of course, the government says they'll "compensate" those affected, by reimbursing from the tax collected, but we all know how long that would last!
So, the signs are now appearing that Australia won't be the place to emigrate to when departing communist Europe or prison-farm America next year. The Australian electorate may be drug-fucked from all the fluoride in their water and additives in their food, but they need to be certified 'insane' if they don't stop this further pillaging!
I'm going to do some more googling for governments that don't currently seem to be planning on being in power beyond the end of 2012!
Sooner than they are ready is fine by me. You go, Thor!
Those fear mongering AHoles.
Sure there will be some changes but in time they will be for the better.
Get off the Debt Ponzi / Death Spiral Train.
Get on the Ouzo and into the Med, waters fine.
Wish I was Greek. It's pandemonium time.
Suicide by two bullets in the head?
It's going to cost lots of blood to fix this. Lets see what the Greeks do. My guess is that their lazy socialist asses will bend over and take it.
That is when T.S.H.T.F
I don't comment or participate often but do read often. Felt strongly enough to log in to post the same: Remember ICELAND!
So if Greece defaults....Mount Olympus will explode like the icelandic volcanoes?
Nope-probably not gonna happen. BUT they will recover far more quickly than if they agree to these shenaggigans...Recovery far more likely
The tanks will be in the streets either way, both options are paths to the same place, long route or direct route, pay now or pay later.
See I'mnot worthy- I didnt see the EDIT comment!
Glad you're here.
I was a long time reader before posting also.
sorry for multiple responses. Thus why I don't participate often... I''m not worthy
You're here. You're aware. Your blinders are off and you have thrown up the kool-aid that 99% of the rest of America and western society in general is still drinking. You are worthy. Carry on.
Bless you :-) True sign of community here at ZH I thought was lacking. You truly made my day.
I don't comment or participate often, but when I do, I choose Dos Exuis. Stay thirsty my Greek friends. (And &^$% the bankers and politicians bloated on the flesh of the innocent)
You could edit the mutiple posts and say something else. Just so it does not look like a mistake.
One of my favorite tricks.
And here I thought I was the only one.....
how do you edit like that? I'll try but if I fail- help apprecaited!I did try to see how to delete.
Wahoo- I see it now. For you youngsters- people like myself need to wear eyeglasses. The forgetting of eyeglasses just cost me 2hours and some money with the IRS on Friday. I'll try harder but compassion is warranted I believe :-)
