    Here’s a question that might have you pondering: Is gold a commodity? More importantly, are we doing a disservice to the gold industry by calling gold a commodity? These may sound like silly...

I knew it was gonna happen.  I predicted the outcome on my blog.

But everybody in the world kept calling me a cunt.

The Ivy League Mafia wins again.

What a pisser.

Thanks for the compliment, Angry German.

But didn't I tell you there would be tanks in the streets before the Greeks were allowed to vote on their own destiny?

Welcome to fascism.

I hate to be a cunt about it.

But let's face the truth.

I'm filled with with wisdom--even though I'm a fucking idiot.

BTW, Tyler is wrong.

Papa Doc getting kicked out isn't an Event Horizon.

The Event Horizon would have been if he was allowed to stay and give the Greeks their democratic rights.

But now that the globe has become controlled by corporatism, the voice of the people no longer matters.

What a sad state of affairs.

Democracy pushed aside for Friendly Fascism.

I could just shit in my hat.

+1.  The current rumor is that the former head of the Greek central bank will be taking over as president.  No kidding.

That's not true if your employer is a corporation, they speak for you so no need for a voice.

actually futures are powering higher on the news. Not of the resignation of course. Does anyone realize that his really doesn't matter? As the one who "put Greece on the map" and love the fight they've put up against these retarded clowns...does it really matter?

The other option is austerity&revolution. No way in hell is austerity going to lift greece from the mud. Whoever thought that would really work, is delusional. (a whole bunch of them)
It's now very clear to any greek that they're excluded from the descision making process. Elections would mean the same thing; Greek vote no.

I really don't see anything else right now, or the Chinese must lease a couple of islands. http://www.greekisland.co.uk/ios/ios.htm

Seems the big banks have more pull as to what happens in Greece than their own PM does.

Is that a good thing?

I think it's a bad sign, but I am just a member of the hoi-polloi.

Wow, G-Pap played a good game for the Greeks, then got fucked in the ass by Sarkosy, then Merkel got her dildo out and double teamed him.

G-Pap, your ass may hurt, but the Greek people won't be looking to lynch you. Can't say the same for your 'stab in the back' Fat fuck of a Finance Minister. He'll have a new one torn in the very near future.
