Dimpled thighs travel twice as fast as non dimpled thighs, which makes pelvic thrusting 1 over the square root of two times more powerful than your standard, cellulite free thigh (measured  thrust myself using a fish scale). Also, cellulite minimizes two bodies rubbing against each other induced farting sounds...

Westphalian sovereignty and the federation of Europe into Charlemagne's dream. The choice that has been haunting the nations of Europe for over a thousand years. Angela now has to decide if she is daughter of Kaiseridée or of Catherine the Great who decided that her's (as Germany's) true future lay to the great Eastern Expanse of Russia, and its RM treasures.

If Europa breaks about Greece and Euro golden fleece turning to lead then Germany has to charter new course....tipping times and eastern chimes. 

Personally I don't see Europe dying, the Euro in its current form probably. Collateral damage of crash of anglo capitalism. A new page, whatever happens will now open.

Nancy has all her assets tied up in Botox futures except for a fishy thing in Guam. Mitt has accounts in all 57 states, plus the US Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico.

And don't compare either to pigeons, because - unlike Nancy or Mitt - the birds can use quantum physics to navigate. Nancy only navigates to the left, and Mitt flip-flops from one direction to the other depending on which way the wind is blowing.

I think she was just making fun of herself. C'mon, they know geography - even after surviving the DDR school system. I am not fun of Merkel but I am sure she knows the basic geography. 

I hope she can look at the map and figure out that the northern part of Europe without France and other Club Med countries would do much better in an economic block on its own. Even the former communist countries are doing much better than the Club Med.

France can print their own eurobonds as much as she wants. Good luck in finding the buyers.

These people always get too much credit.  All you have to do is look at the decisions they make and the things they say and know they are idiots being led around like a monkey on a string.

Matter of fact the only way to get ahead today in political office is to be stupid, never think for yourself, never listen to the people you are suppose to serve, and do whatever your banker masters tell you to do.

Idiots, one and all!

Oh dear, there goes the European idea that only Americans cannot find their own country on the map. Or was this a leftover of German "Drang nach Osten"?

Yeah, Angela beeing funny in front of an audience which knows well the geography of Europe.  Thats why all laughed. Its just a German joke, which means you need a certain level of intelligence to understand it. Everybody in Germany knows, that Angela studied in Russia as a communist youth cadre. So, she has really a sense of humor when pretending not to find Moscow on the map.

However, Angela is much better at making trouble for the US/UK banking industry.  Because she is best friend with Hollande and dont worry Eurobonds are going to come in a not so far future. But before a finance transaction tax is going to be introduced in Europe the Tobin tax. And the revenues of this tax, its expected to be in many billions (having in mind the HFT and currency trading in London which is 80% in Euros denominated), this revenue is then forwarded to Greece and other EU countries in need. So in the end, the banks do help Greece again, but this time not with a credit but with non refundable cash. Isnt it funny. Its is, but only not for the UK finance fraud industry. huhhuhuhu

The playscript is as follows: Hollande and Monti want Eurobonds. Merkel and other do not like it. At least this is the official version.  But, be careful, this is another German joke from Angela, that is very clear to notice if you know Angela like the Germans do. 

So: The way it works out is as follows:

The EU is making a big move forward to become the USE by introducing some kind of fiscal union. An then Merkel can sell this to the Germans that Eurobonds are becoming a reality, because of the fiscal union which means more Europe and lesser Germany. This is something the Germans can accept, because more Europe was always good for them during the last 60 years.

Together with the fiscal union more power has to be granted to Strasbourg to the European parliament.This is for the majority of the Germans also not a problem.

It will be Strasbourg a city in France becoming the capital of Europe, where the EU finance ministry and the EU foreign ministry is going to be located. Not Brussels, thats sure. Once these two pillars are erected, then USE is existing. Central Finance and Central Foreign policy this is it what makes the base for a united Europe. The rest is not that important anymore. It just follows slowly over time.

Hurry up Investors of this world, buy real estate in Strasbourg now, its going o boom soon.

She knows Russia very well. She speaks excellent Russian and won a Russian language championship in school. The price was a visit to the comrades in Moscow!
