BISMERKEL

"An appeal to fear never finds an echo in German hearts."

"A statesman...must wait till he hears the steps of God sounding through events, then leap up and grab the hem of his garment."

"I have seen three emperors in their nakedness, and the sight was not inspiring." 

Otto von Bismarck

Politician - the world's easiest job - Promise them anything and give them fiat.  How hard can that be?

Forcing european gov to stop wasting money is hte best service Germany is rendering to the citizens of Europe. That is a unique opportunity to reign in government spending. Politicians in France and Spain and Italy hates Merkel, but she will go down in history as a formidable figure who arrested the madness of governments imposing slavery on their citizens through taxes and inflation. Go Merkel (And I am French!)

I'm a little confused by positions our posters take on Merkel actions. On one hand everybody is criticizing Bernake for mindless printing and on the other Merkel is under attack from all sides for her unwillingness to do it. So what is the best solution according to them, "print, no print, print, no print ......." stance? She's doing it.

The Krauts should have canceled Deadbeat Europe's credit cards a year ago.

The whole thing is one big clusterfuck. Ours is not as complex, just bigger.

Sisyphus rolling the epic Euro debt can.  Awesome!!!!! [edit] Atlas or Sisyphus?

It's Sisyphus, and you're correct it is awesome.

Edit: Oooops, it's say atlas in the blurb. I see why you said that now.

but Atlas didn't push anything up a hill ?

Sisyphus didn't work for the rhythm...yeah,...that's the ticket! (not to mention I didn't know it was suppose to be Sisyphus!!!)

EURO CAN

The can is now popping it's lid

The Eorozone debt can't be hid

The montain's too steep

The danger too deep

Atlas is starting to skid

I hope it is Atlas and not Sisyphus pictured. Once the can rolls back down to the bottom, I hope we don't just shoulder it and start pushing it uphill again. Maybe we will learn something from this huge mess, but I am a bit cynical.

The lesson has already been learned and repeated several times.

Start a war and distract the masses from the real problem.  Blame someone else.  Kill off millions to help unemployment.  Destroy infrastructure to create capital expenditures.  Tighten totalitarian control.  Wait for masses to grind themselves out in austerity and war.  Step in, pick up any remaining assets for pennies on the dollar, and start ponzi all over again.

That's the "reset" everyone is waiting for.

Iranians have a right to live, too. They didn't steal a country, nor attack any oil-rich neighbors.
