Postcards From Greece

These seem to be becoming quite popular lately: This particular one was titled: "Let them buy bonds." We are waiting to see how it will be revised following today's wonderful "Bailout #2" news. Expect Greek exchanges to hike rope margins asap.

That's why you need to attach names to them, so nobody misunderstands whose head goes in it.

For added points, make a rag doll and put that in the noose, also with a name on it.

If a pack of rednecks show up the last thing any fascist should worry about is rope.  Higher on the concern list should be:

1) the requisite pack of hunting dogs - they are not afraid of gunfire and will engage animals far more vicious than riot police

2) the ubiquitous 5000lb medium duty truck/ heavy duty pickup that is probably worth more than a redneck's house in this market, and can easily make scrap out of any police SUV or cruiser

3) the contents of the gun rack in the aforementioned pickup 1) a 12 gauge shotgun (since rednecks aren't subsidized by Uncle Sam with free supplies of non-lethal rounds, the first round and all subsequent one discharged are LEAD and  2) a long range hunting rifle 30-06/270/300WSM which will penetrate body armor far better then the 22 caliber M4/AR15 varmint guns the cops were so foolishly desperate for on February 28, 1997, and which even a one-eyed half-blind redneck is deadly with out to a couple thousand feet  

4) the family, extended family, and neighbors of each redneck in the event they are late returning for dinner that night, who of course all have the combination to the gun safe(s), the keys to other truck(s) and/or heavy field/construction equipment, and are guaranteed to show up in larger numbers and better armed and more angry than the initial wave

Of course if they aren't real rednecks (e.g. politically motivated impostors) then the above really doesn't matter.

Incidentally, for all those confused why as to why the US hasn't broken down into a series of made-for-MENA-TV moments- answer this: When did the urbane-sophisticated-effeminate-metro-sexual arab culture of Syria descend into a bloody civil war, after decades of meek "yes massa" responses to Bashar and his far more imposing father's encroachments on civil liberties?  When did the tirelessly-lazy-qat-chewing-AK47-toting adults in Yemen join the students in the street?  When the State started drawing the blood of kin.

Bankster in a dumpster, it has a nice ring to it.

Also - people who are out of work (i.e. tons of youth and others in Greece, Spain, etc..) have lots of time on their hands to learn, read and understand what is happening to them. And then they have lots of time to plot, and hangout in shadowy corners as well as city squares

The bailout does nothing for Greece. I makes the holders of GGB's (which are UK, French and German banks) whole, by loaning Greece the money at 6% to repay its bondholders, while collateralizing them with the resources of the Greek people. Their ports and other critical infrastructure become property of the IMF and the ECB, and their pension funds are raided.

The only thing that keep Americans from rioting is that most own guns.  Once you take away guns from all citizens, then the rioting begins.

And rioting begets only one thing:  Repression.  Either by those suppressing the rioters or the rioters once they take over power from those in power.

Guns for all.  Except those in government or receiving government payments.

The problem with using a bullet is that it wastes perfectly good copper on a bankster.  We must think environmentally here as we look at irradicating the bankster plague infecting mankind.  Besides, by using bullets, we actually make other banksters richer (who invested in copper or those invested in companies making guns/bullets).

That works well but (usually) requires a crew and lots of time.  A better device, a welded gibbet (to feed the crows), does not require a crew after installing the guest, but still requires area control for a few days. 

While interesting to imagine, most will not build fancy devices or have the time to employ them to effect.

EDIT: BTW the very few deserving torture are aware of their security, and are unlikely to be captured by mobs.  Ordinary bank employees, who may be captured, should not be tortured IMHO.
