Greek banks have proposed a series of measures to combat tax evasion, strengthen the electronic transactions and limit the use of cash in the economy, and as KeepTalkingGreece.com reports, one of the measures proposed is a special tax on cash withdrawals.
Debt reduction and the visible reduction of what is seen internationally as overbearing statism in the U.S. economy will be critical to building back long-term U.S. global capabilities. The U.S. has not seen such an opportunity for strategic reversal since the Reagan Administration. But only if the incoming Administration adheres to the principles which won it the election, and avoids the compromises which the bureaucratic base of government will attempt to force on it to avoid disruption of the status quo.
The furious Turkish leader lashed out a day after the European Parliament called for a pause in Turkey’s EU accession talks in protest at Ankara’s “repressive” and “disproportionate” response to a violent coup attempt earlier this year. "We are the ones who feed 3m-3.5m refugees in this country," he said. "You have betrayed your promises. If you go any further those border gates will be opened."
In 2008, Obama talked of Middle Pennsylvanians as poor losers clinging to their bibles, bigotries and guns as they passed from the scene. Yet, now, it’s looking like it may be Obama’s world headed for the proverbial ash heap of history.
"The amateurs are the ones conquering the world and I’m rejoicing because the professionals are the ones who have reduced the world to this state. Hillary Clinton, Obama and all the rest have destroyed democracy and their international policies. The experts, economists and intellectuals have completely misunderstood everything."

In the main, the serfs are patient and tolerant of their masters, but in a democracy, the establishment behind the state risks being challenged.

Does the average unemployed youth in Greece, Italy, or Spain give a rat’s ass about a Marshall plan for Africa? Hell no! They want a Marshall Plan for Greece, for Italy, and Spain. Sarkozy’s Marshall Plan for Africa idea shows how much out of touch these politically correct buffoons are.
We are facing an unprecedented breakthrough: a global change that potentially could definitively overwhelm the unipolar world order created after the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989 and sent into overdrive by the 9/11 so-called War on Terror. The victory of Donald Trump is the most emblematic representation of a total repudiation by the American population of the so-called establishment and its interests.
Unsurprisingly, in Brussels people are not thrilled with Donald Trump’s election as new American President. EU Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker reacted by saying “We will need to teach the president-elect what Europe is and how it works”, but it seems more likely it is Europe that must learn about a number of new political realities. Here’s an overview of what it all means for the EU27...
Speaking in Greece at the beginning of his 'save my legacy' world tour, President Obama just uttered the following words... "the healthy majority of Americans agree with my world-view on many things." Coming just a week after the biggest loss for the Democratic party in decades... if not ever... this has to be comedy?
