Turns out that there are lies, damn lies, accounting lies and the worst of all - Greek lies.

G-Pap just got his ass "saved" and now he wants to put the decision up for referendum?  This is trully getting more absurd with every day.  If only Jonathan Swift were alive today.

I have been running the popcorn machine pretty hard now for months.  Looks like I will have to buy a new one...

And this time, popcorn in bulk!

I am pleased, I hope the Greeks vote the rescue package down and declare their exit from Eurozone. Then the whole Euro-prison can collapse and national currencies and national responsibilities can be re-established over the current leeching system.

It won't be fun for the Southern Europe, though, or to the banks and investors who have invested there. Better put your Euro investments in Northern European countries now.

I think he found out how much he is giving up by taking their plan.  He wants the people to say F it and default pure and simple.

Good riddance, Greece.

nice tits, but not so sure on the comment

your analogy fails me... leading a horse to water is to lead a horse to sustainability.  leading greece to accept another bailout is to lead greece to death.  how do the two compare? 

Will you say good riddance when Portugal, Ireland, Spain and Italy follow suit?  They will you know as there is no alternative short of total debt jubilee

Absolutely, baghead. Let them go, if they wish to do so. Why would anybody throw more money after these...? It would lead to a painful decade but it will also be very cleansing.

I for one produce enough milk to stay afloat...!

Much like Socrates, the horse was lead to drink hemlock. Turning and running may not have been a bad idea.

Yes, if they want to keep their various PONZIs running, they better do it in Olives, Ouzo and Drachma than playin' with hard money... I'd say gogogo, but I fear Merkozy will come up with some new accounting trick...

G-Pap was born in the good ole USA (Minnesota). He was educated in the USA. His mother is American, not Greek. He seems to think in English, as it is often noted that he makes mistakes when speaking Greek. So I would say his lies, and I believe there have been plenty, are grade A American.

Referendum vote held = austerity fails = Greece declares bankruptcy = All major banks collapse = economy goes down = local barter economy surfaces

The years passed, mankind became stupider at a frightening rate. Some had high hopes the genetic engineering would correct this trend in evolution, but sadly the greatest minds and resources where focused on conquering hair loss and prolonging erections.

I second this. My chick wanted to have kids. I told her to look around at this grossly overpopulated shithole of a planet, and asked, "are you fucking crazy"?

Problem is, most smart, kind people think like this, leaving the world to be populated with tons of half wits and sociopaths.

Beat up your significant others uterus, and make the world a better place.

the markets seem to be assuming this is purely political rhetoric, but if it ends up being substantive its huge. he wouldn't leave this decision in the hands of the citizens who are sure to vote no unless he had a plan for negotiating a larger haircut. i then wonder how far they can go before this default... i mean haircut is no longer voluntary.

I think I will trust the markets on this one. He may just be buying time-- All the other parties in Parliament have been calling for early elections. A referendum, and a postponement of it, and further postponement of it, will give him plenty of time to sell what is left of Greece.
