This is clearly the fault of evil speculators. 

And btw, Tyler, Slovenia and Slovakia are 2 different places. 

GeneMarchbanks's picture

Slovakia is the one although I'm sure Slovenia can't afford this either but just do what they're told...

Caviar Emptor's picture

Ahh, Slovenia, how we pine for your shores (and money)

GeneMarchbanks's picture

Northern Adriatic. Nothing special...

We drove to Croatia 2 summers ago. We were driving past Trieste and the kids knew we were coming up to the border. It said 'welcome to Slovenia'. Quote of the holiday (after driving through 6 countries already): 'I've not even heard of this country'.

It took us half an hour to get to the Croat border, and we were only in the country that long because we had to avoid buying a 6-month vignette to use 10 miles of motorway.

somebody please remind me again, why are we talking about slovenia? tyler said nothing of slovenia? slovenia was among yugoslavakian states that declared independence when ussr went kaput back in '91. slovakia was the one that broke away from czechoslovakia afterwards. tyler's made a great point about slovakia being a small country; when it comes to negotiating bankster bailouts, the smaller you are, the more crazy and reckless you'd have to be.

"Europe fights the stem the contagion resulting from the collapse and nationalization of the first Greek bank, which nobody, nobody, could have foreseen."
if you have the common sense to foresee that bankrupt TBTF companies will be nationalized, you are a 'nobody', your voice will never be heard, your opinions will not count, as banksters and their political puppets continue to divert public money from more bailouts.

"the smallest European country is holding the entire continent, its currency, and frankly the Fed, which will have to step in and bailout Europe, hostage."

why is slovakia vilified when it's the banksters who are holding everyone hostage. praises goes to slovakia, it's fighting for its rights it's doing what's right.

didn't say what the conditions were for saying yes. also the "Czech" part is not part of the euro-zone as it has it's own currency...the "koruna"... though it is a member of the EU. Interesting history as well. I've never been to Prague but I hear it's quite beautiful. It was a big location for the information age folks after the Soviet Union collapsed. I imagine that still is true.

parts of prague are indeed quite breathtaking but other parts feel rather desolate and you can tell they still haven't fully recovered from wars. definitely worth checking out though.

Sounds like New York city.

Speaking of not knowing anything about geography, since when is Slovakia the smallest European country?  What about Malta and Luxembourg, both EU countries?   Or Lichtenstein, Andorra, San Marino or Monaco?  They're Europe too, but not EU.

defencev's picture

 Not only that. The very idea that Slovakia stops anything is an absolute nonsense. The author seems to be obsessed with various Armagedon-type scenarios none of which is going to happen. Crawl back to your cave, count your Gold and keep quiet:nothing drastic is going to happen.

The Mouse that Roared ..... or in this case.... got the biggest bribe for its vote.

Yes, there's a very big bribe being negotiated. The deal will close, the can will be kicked and the stubborn folk from the arguably smallest, insect size country will get a huge payoff.

I think the truth lies somewhere between you and Tyler, defencev.

And don't miss the VATICAN either...no matter how holy and religious it may look like, it has all the functions and wealth as a state except the uniformed army...and banking center as well :D

It would take too long for me to explain to you how I knew this day would come. I'm still looking for the original thread where I made this prediction a couple weeks earlier.

"October 10th, 2011 is the stock and bond market day of total world market devastation. Black Monday and Black Tuesday next month beginning October 10th will be market devastation of biblical proportions. You may think the plunges in this September are the big one, you are wrong, that's next month. Yes it is going to happen sooner rather than later."

President Hu Jintao is having to stare down claims that human-induced climate change is an elaborate American conspiracy.

I've been calling out the globalist bullshit from day one. Think central banking is a scam? Global warming/ climate change is the cherry on top, the final nail in our coffin. These sick fucks truly do desire a total lockdown prison planet. Think I'm crazy? Fine, get on the train then.

WHO has the Sydney Morning Herald? Oops...just recall it, the famous NEWS Corporation, or even more famous name, Rupert Murdoch. I'm still much amazed with their sophisticated phone investigation :D

Wrong, but thanks for playing. SMH is owned by Fairfax, not News. Scumbags yes, but a different group of scumbags.

'I've not even heard of this country'.


You read that and thought he was American? :roll:


Watch at 2:56 and learn how an American would say that:

Exactly.  WTF is a "vignette" or a "motorway," anyway?

buzzsaw99's picture

i suspect vignette is some kind of salad dressing.

That or Slovakian slang for va jay-jay?

DeadFred's picture

That there balsanic vignette can be right tasty stuff.

Cynical Sidney's picture

that's balsamic vinaigrette, means vinegar with added salad oil; vignette are old portraits of people found in books, with its background color slowly fading into the pages; in creative writing, vignette is a 'defining picture'.

Grimbert's picture

Yeah, that would be the type they sell at border crossings.

Motorway - a road for motorcycles.

Euro trash -- so fucking arrongant.  Can you Frenchie, name every US state and every capital of every US state?  I did not think so.  Can you name the US rivers, the great lakes?  No, again. hmm.  How about the Regions of Russia?  Do you know where Turkmenistan versus Tartarstan is? What is the capital of Tartarstan and why is it famous?  I see, no again.  I cant help it your forefathers, who invented the inferiority complex know as the Nepolean complex (which you obviously have), lost so much of your land that what is left is so small it is hard to forget, even when we try.

I happened to have lived in Switzerland, and happen to know all of the countries in Europe, but that is because I lived there fucker.  Europeans tend to complain that Americans do not know geography, my experience is they know just as much geography as Euro-trash, just different geography.  And the French with their harry women and small dicks who know the least seem to complain the most.

Troll Magnet's picture

legal eagle,
i'm american and i can tell you that i will NOT be able to name capitals of all 50 states or many great lakes of ours, etc. i'm not proud but many americans are provincial if not downright stupid. how else can you explain bush-bush-obama? and judging by ron paul's 10% support, i am pretty confident that at least 90% of americans are indeed fucking dumb. again, not proud but it is what it is.

maxw3st's picture

Well said Troll Magnet. It's good to see I'm not alone. I probably can name all 50 states and their capitals as well as the great lakes, most, if not all, of the countries in Europe, and the same for Africa. But, I grew up moving around a lot and have never had the benefit of being able to become provincial. The rest of your statement is right-on. Europeans, by and large, are still as Chauvinistic as they were during the Victorian era and so are no different than the average American in that regard.

When you have a government that spends 30 years dumbing down the education system you are going to get things like Bush-Bush and complete ignorance as to what Ron Paul's message is or what its roots are. The fall of an empire is a sad thing-when it's where you live.

Nah! think you are just sloppy.....

legal eagle's picture

Yes, of course, more euro-trash with a superiority complex.  English I suppose, the worst.  Have you ever heard of dentistry?

buzzsaw99's picture

in the name of the usa, please stop. how many countries do you intend to insult with your redneck stereotypical bs?

Lord Welligton's picture

Apparently as many as his ignorance allows.

However, I am Irish.

As was Wellington.

Though that would be way beyond the education of the "Legal Eagle".

I'm from Canuckistan and the capital is Beer. Any questions?

Nah.  Labatt Blue, as long as you're not in Utah.

3 point beer sucks, eh?
