Snales and ladders? You mean, like, our own dearly beloved Spalding of the same name?

Hmmm, and I thought it was DOMINOS that the EU was playing. Then again, from JP Morgue and Tungesten Sacks' perspective, it probably looks more like a game of MONOPOLY with EU CDS - "All your debt are belong to us!"

Why the Roman Empire fell is a question scholars still debate today. According to Murphy (2006), we can note several factors: the family structure was weakened, citizenship and patriotism were no longer taught, and virtue was not stressed or sought as a way of life. Schools were asked to fill in for what was lacking in the family and in society.

Wow, I didn't know Rome fell because of Conservative Republican talking points.

Maybe the entire globe is about to go on an austerity program.

Perhaps that is why some experts say the CRB index has made a generational top.

And that is why AMZN is trading at world record highs.  People are getting smarter about where to buy stuff.

You are fundamentally retarded.

Have fun hoping for spot silver to hit $10 before you will be able to buy back more silver than you sold with the same amount of dollars (minus your taxes, of course).

If you roll a 3 you win. Straight up to enter the Bond markets in 2012 - 2013

Anything other than 3 is still fine for the next roll, thats when the fun starts.

Only 8, 9, 10, & 11 are safe to land for the second round of dice.

Only 14 and 16 are safe for the third round of dice.

Only 18 and 20 are safe for the fourth round of dice.

Only 24 which is the winning box for the Bond Markets is safe for the fifth round of dice.

So you could roll a 2 for the first go. You will need to Roll a 6 for the next go. Need to Roll a 6 for the next Roll, with either a 4 or 6 from the following roll to leave you for the final roll of 6 or 4.

The death of the middle-class is unfolding before our eyes in every developed country simultaneously. Diamond-shaped wealth distribution is giving way to the inverted pyramid so familiar to the poorest nations and to our ancestors. 

We shudder at the sight of Greek riots and jasmine revolutionaries, but in reality their economic goals are not very different from ours. But power is never relinquished without a fight.

 The have nots out number the haves, BY 6B. the haves are a mere 50M. The remaining 700.25m are in between. Things get concave really fast when food and Justice run dry!

 ... between Greece, as the pray

... as the prey  (fixed it for ya)

Pray - to invoke a higher power as in prayer to God

Prey - about to be consumed, as in eaten by a lion

It used to be Chutes and Ladders, but the poop chute image made snakes a more viable marketing strategy directing the male "wiggly" rather than giving off that dubious ambivalence.

looks like the cops have been told to turn it up a notch. don't know why. not sure if this is a good idea. i figure there are going to be some major problems resultant from these unwarranted actions by the police.

 

also it looks like a race war is brewing with unemployed greeks getting pissed off at these towel heads in their country sucking off of the hind tit of the greek government. i was wondering when this stuff would start. they simply do not like the foreigners in their country.

 

looks like its on in greece........
