    The US, in its own decline, is showing this same self-destructive tendency. The worse things get, the greater the inclination of the citizenry to say, “Carry on, everything’s fine.”

Yeah, I'll do that.


Here's a hint--I'm not particularly interested in you.  You are the one who replies to my comments that aren't directed at you.  You are not a unique little snowflake.  I treat you the same way I treat the legion of other trolls, who have all crawled away in shame after being proven WRONG over and over.

I would suggest you be silent in the future.  All you do otherwise is make a fool of yourself, and collect junks.

If you must hate me, then hate me.  There is a support group for that.  "Butthurt faggot trolls who were dismembered by tmosley anonymous".  Perhaps you ought to sit in on a session.

From who? A ineffective president playing golf? A congress unable to do anything other than filibuster? or a court that needs months to decide or remand the case somewhere else?

Europe is like the Canker family in the trailer park always squabbling over nothing. Centuries of it.

It is easier to raise your own credit card limit than it is for Uncle Sam to do it.

One call does it all. Instant approval.

But here Congress is in it up to eyeballs. And they get nothing done.

Drink a bottle of Ozo.

Fill the empty bottle with gasoline (NOT Diesel - dummy)

Stuff a piece of cloth into the neck of the bottle, leaving plenty hanging outside.

Tip the bottle upside down to allow some of the gas to lightly soak the cloth.

Find a suitable target.

Light it and chuck it.

Repeat until you are as broke as your country is.

Did'nt Alexander the Great burn down a city or Palace in drunken revels one time? heh.

At one time shortly after 911 that information or recipies for bomb making would get you jailed.

Hell, they also yanked all nuclear plant diagrams and other stuff off the internet 10 years ago.

Not knowing we are here to discuss FUKU in agonizing forensic detail for months with detailed charts worthy of penthouse or playboy.

'Someone' burned down Darius' palace in Persepolis (pretty sure that wasn't the proper Persian name tho' - 'history' is written by the victors, after all).

Now - if only Alexander had had shares in Boeing.

That's the Molotov Cocktail....been around since the 1956 Hungarian uprising, I think ? Here's the Monedas Cocktail: Drink a bottle of Ouzo ! Fill it with gasoline and screw the lid on tight ! Duct tape twoo, threee or foooour sparklers, close together at least at their tips, to the side of the bottle ! Light the sparklers with a butane cigarette lighter or whatever ! Take your time, take aim and launch ! Monedas 2011 It uses Space Shuttle ignition technology !

Vague translation: Ya see don't get yer hopes up that we're gonna bail all y'all forever, Piigs. It's not like we're just printing money or anything, see? It's not like we're just gonna play sanny klaus and come round with trillions every time there's a hiccup that threatens our buddies at the big banks and Wall Street. We got that situation totally under control ok?. Totally. We tell them what to do not the other way 'round, got it?

I have great hopes for the Greeks...

I think that what the statement really says is "we really, really hope that you Greeks don't elect a government that will just repudiate this deal and mess up all of our butt-buddies at the banks".

In my opinion, this crisis is caused by the flaw of Democracy, which is us, Voters! This flaw now happens every where, Greece, USA or even in my country, Thailand.

Right now, we're going to have a new election on 3rd July and ,sadly, every political party only try to please us by promoting hand out money policy (Tax cut, Debt relief, Stimulus plans... you name it). Can't blame the politician though, because, if someone dare try to promote Stop Stimulus plans or Raise Tax, he will be a goner. So, since politicians can't look ahead longer than 4 years term, these crazy deficit spending policies will go on and on and on until... well, look at Greece. When that happen, Don't blame politician, political system, China or anyone else, Blame YOU (ME).

Actually, I think, as bad as it is for the Greeks, they've done their homework and know that if they go, the whole show's over for the banksters. They have the trump card if they can hold on.

"Borrow $100 and can't pay the bank, you've got a problem. Borrow $1B and can't pay the bank, the bank's got a problem."

Right now, every single bank on this planet has a problem. Hyperbole acknowledged.

No it's evacuate the house via escape and evade with a go bag, handing weapons to spouse and kids. And then hide from the grid as it searches for every last dime to save themselves.

The raiding has started with Government Worker's own retirement accounts and Social Security at one time long ago.

Nice and brief, like a little song I used to lull my son to sleep with on the car ride home from the zoo today.

I call it the "Sheeple Song":

I'm a little sheeple....doo doo dooooo.
I love GMO...doo doo doooo.
I love fiat money...doo doo dooo.
Dancing with the Stars...doo doo dooo.
I'm a little sheeple....doo doo YEA!

The EU is loosing control, even if the ECB prints Germany will start to get frisky.  Makes me think how primitive economics (and the morons at gov and CB's) is as a science.  At least hedge funds follow chaos theory outcomes.
