THE BEST "GREEK CHICKEN" IN THE WORLD

3 med. whole chickens
8 Idaho baking potatoes
1/2 c. olive oil
3 lemons, cut into wedges
Salt and pepper
Fresh oregano (generous amount)
1 stick butter Place scrubbed potatoes with skins in oven at 375 degrees. Bake for 45 minutes or until done. After potatoes are baked, slice them 1 1/2 inches thick. Place sliced potatoes around freshly cleaned chickens in a large baking pan. Sprinkle chickens and potatoes with olive oil, salt and pepper, fresh oregano, and lemon juice. Place chunks of butter inside chickens and onto potatoes. Also place a lemon wedge freshly squeezed inside each chicken. Place inside oven at 325 degrees. Baste chicken and potatoes with juices from the pan for added moisture. Chickens will be done when skins are crispy brown and legs lift easily from the joint. Serve the meal with fresh Greek bread, slightly toasted, to dip into the juices.

Lord , sure but its a bit more complicated then that - perhaps 100,000 to 200,000  Irish people depend on the Euro transfer mechanisms to flow , they have grown up on the Euro Teat - they are simply not programmed to rebel.

They must keep the status quo if they are to peserve their wealth whatever the cost.

That and the previous sovergin banker class who feed off and multiplied this money scheme needed to keep the Euro dream alive despite the fact the Euro is a sov money killer.

Thats the one advantage of the Euro - it has crushed the local banking parasitical class although now the surplus is being exported to  Continental Euro priests.

Actually Ireland exports are higher than Germany's on a per capita basis, it all depends on up to what point they are able to discipline the banking sector folly. If a great deal of those exports are potatoes or not, that I don't know.

I would wager the majority of Irish exports come from American (and other multi-national) companies with manufacturing facilities in Ireland, whereas German exports are predominantly from German companies.

Its so sad to see executives with such little power either through meek consent, cowardice or corruption.

Ireland appears to be the most banked country on the planet and given the Biblical Banker Plague that we are all experiencing that is  quite something.

How banked a country is can be calculated quite easily - its the ratio of goverment to private debt , they own our skinny little ass now.

In the final analysis this Lapdog pseudo state deserves everything we are going to get.

50 years of cock sucking does not do much for ones self esteem I guess.

Irish domestic credit deposits could finance this state for years , however that would mean all assets dependent on Fractional credit would reduce to their true cash value.

This would mean the destruction of the remaining domestic banking sector who wish to hang on and expose the Euro dream as a Credit Monster.

I would like to see a deal done on Corporate tax but not for a 1% interest reduction or some such nonsense.

The French & the rest of the continent can write off ALL OF THE CAPITAL in return for a deal but we would be unable to pay them back the capital if the French have their way - there simply would not be enough economic activity here to pay for such debt.

Turnip fields do not have a high return.

They need a shirt that says, "These aren't the PIGS you're looking for. We can go about our business. Move along."

Noooooo! This is so wrong! I think they’re gonna print fiat T-shirts out of thin air! It’s just as nutz as Le Bron James peddling Grope juice (Gropeade???).

Hmmmm...

America is not the UK, which is not France, which is not Italy, which is not Spain, which is not Portugal, which is not Greece, which is not Ireland, which is not Iceland...

Man, you'd need a pretty big tee shirt to fit all that. 

Or, How about:

Goldman Sachs is not JPMorgan, which is not Morgan Stanley, which is not Merril Lynch, which is not Lehmen Brothers, which is not Bear Stearns.

It's all about trying to pick out the best looking horse at the glue factory these days.

Mad Max- here we come. Better start sampling various dog food brands now to find the one that elicits the weakest gag reflex.

How come Greece owes $44,000 per person.. and they get too..

retire at 50(ish).. with 80% full benefits and always full medical..

in America we owe $45,000 a person and our retirement age is a decade later.. with no medical?

 

anyone? anyone??

 

so, the lie is there.. for the sheep any time they would like to see it!
