Quote Of The Day: "That Was Not A Joke"

Tyler Durden's picture


If one needs proof that after 3 years of being merely totally insolvent, Europe is now also world's greatest Bazooko circus in history, please fast forward to 24 minutes into the clip, where Europe's most pathological liar is now its most (in)voluntary comedian as well.

Question: Is the goal still to get Greece's debt to 120%?

Juncker: The fact is that the target of 120% will remain, but the target as far as the time frame is concerned has been postponed to 2022.

[Laughter in the room]

Juncker: That was not a joke!

Fast forward to 24:00

And cue Bazooko's Circus.

h/t Alex

"It took 80 years to get there..."

So, unless by a miracle of technology (or something) time is now running much faster, for people who've already been born, the trick is figuring out where the fuck to hide for the remainder of our natural lives...

Hurry up and wait.  lol.  That's life unfortunately.  

  • Enjoy family and friends company.  
  • Relearn old ways of doing things.  
  • Learn about your community.  
  • Get out of the subburban mindset of ignoring your neighbour.
  • Join the Masons, Lions Club, Church; besides the idea they are taking over the world, not sure how it would be managed between the community work that gets done in them.  The initations are merely foreplay to determine personal committment to your area.

People already have currency to trade, it just doesn't look like silver or gold or fiat.  Comes in handshakes and honouring commitments to each other.  For all the wild gun men roaming the landscape and the world on fire end of world scenarios offered, I personally just simply refuse them out of hand.  The people that wish to live by the gun will die by it.  


Want to see an area of the world where everyone makes due, is one of the nicest places on the planet and there are no gun fights on the corners.  Travel to the East Coast of Canada.  Nobody has two pennies to rub together, but things get done.  Instead of the Man on Fire offered by MSM and it's acolytes, I believe Anne of Green Gables with the power of low power communication digital technology is very possible if people steady themselves and figure out what is required instead of wanted.

What an idiot. The Greeks need to be dragging these fuckers through the streets.....well actually they need to start with their elected officials and work their way up the chain. More poverty and misery projected for 10 years just to make sure the bankers get paid.

No no no, start at the top, the banksters, then work down to government. If you go and start toppling governments the banksters will be able to go underground and finance both sides again!

That will happen as soon as the police join the mobs instead of trying to control them. When that day happens - when the police kick down the barricades to government along with the people - then it will dawn on people in Spain, Italy, Portugal, the US...everywhere, that all things are possible when people take control of the government that is there to serve them. Their only danger would be replacing tyranny with more tyranny. I would bet, though, that they're hungry enough to chance it.


+1 for you, Doc.

Politicians are expected to lie; and we all know its not funny 'cos if they told the truth, the banks would be emptied of all their money in a giffy. End of politicians, they'd be hanging to the lamposts tied to the entrails of the bankers.

So "its not a joke" expresses very deep underlying fears by those who say it : Better to lie than to die! 

They all remember 1789.

Well, after hearing that.  Mr junker, you are on formal notice that when you're skinny neck is on a stick, for taking the piss out of the poor fuckers who keep you in the lifestyle you do not deserve or warrant.

That wasn't a fucking joke neither, you parasitic, nation wrecking, imbecile.

The target of 120% will remain, but the target as far as the time frame has been postponed to infinity...

This stupid bought out fucker thought he was being striaght with the audience.

If that was me laughing, I would of had the balls to stand up and say something like "Are you taking the fucking piss mate?  Greece is at 500% bullshit and now you reckon in ten years time they will reduce the defecit down to 120% after needing monthly bailouts??????"

"Are you taking the fucking piss junker????"

Is what should have been said.

Burn these fuckers at the stake.  They deserve no less.
