G-Pap reortedly told his security detail:

I was all prepared to submit the referendum to the people for their vote, and then this dark figure was waiting for me in my home last night, and simply said, "Oh no you diii-in't," before leaving a dead fish wrapped in yesterday's edition of The Telegraph, before fleeing silently into the night.

No its greasy scum only. You see they have to hide the OUTRAGEOUS sums of money they get. At least according to morons like you who lay this whole episode at their feet.

It's like blaming a homeless street kid on heroin rather than the drug king pin who pushed the product at his school. Give away a free lunch and people will show up, period. The VAST majority of the responsibility lies with the pusher (banks and politicians) a little sick of this shitty blame the victim mentality fucks like you have. Not only are these people now getting ROYALLY FUCKED with long term debt slavery, they are also losing their sovereignty.

By the way asshole if you think the bankers and politicians don't have the same thing planned for the US you are a fucking moron. Keep blaming the little people until one day you wake up in some greek sandals and say "someone speak up for me! I'm being held accountable for the corrupt actions of politicians in a corrupt process! The bankers were controlling the whole thing, why will no one speak up for me!"

First they came for the Greeks. But assholes like me said nothing cause I ain't greek and I'm a snobby fuck.

Rely on your self all you want. You think some self-reliant Greek who did everything right is somehow going to be given a pass on loss of sovereignty because they were a rugged individualist? Fuck no, the law will come down hard on ALL equally. Again, this is why the majority of the blame lies on the politicians and their bankster overlords.

You can be without sin, and the bankers will throw the first stone, likely of a depleted ranium shell sort from a tank. Ideologues like yourself can't see the writing on the wall. Either we globally stand up against the globalist tyranny or we will fall one by one.

Blaming the average greek, who by the way doesn't exist as they are a nation of millions, is stupid and myopic. It also shows that your ideology is flawed. You can be the most rigorous individualist whoever lived, and it won't save you from the massive crushing power of the state/banks UNLESS you network with others who believe in liberty and resist it (peacefully). Blaming the greek people for this travesty is the worst sort of apologism for the bankers, it plays right into their hands.

I'm just sick of smug assholes like you who think they are somehow impervious to the globalist plan because they are sitting on a stack of PM's and ammunition. I'm a PM bug because I see the writing on the wall, but I'm not such a fool as to blame my fellow common folk for the lies and extortion of the banker/politician entities and the yoke of slavery being put around their neck REGARDLESS of their personal individual actions. Keep on blaming the victim, but then don't cry when it's your turn to be bent over the barrel ALONE.

The one issue we agree on is that the banking parasites must go. Where we differ is on methodology.

I prefer to withdraw assetts from the system and not play their game. If enough of us do that they will fold. This method will only bring down martial law, which is what the bankers want anyway.

They want the population begging to be protected. They want you scared. Fuck them... with draw from their game and they can no longer use your money to make fucked up bets, then send you a statement showing your losses, and a tax bill to cover their losses.

I'm doing all those things and guess what...SO ARE THE GREEKS EN MASSE! Hence the runs on banks and the sky rocketing black market value of PM's.

Take off the ideologue glasses man! We are all in this together, quit falling into the "Divide et impera" trap. They want us to blame the greeks for taking on onerous welfare state debt. Yet, just as I explained to I-dog below, that is akin to blaming ALL americans for Obama's debt, Bush and Obama's wars, the Patriot Act, the decisions of the FED etc. etc. It's just ridiculous. It's fraud, presented as one thing, when it was always meant to steal sovereignty and liberty. As long as we continue to be divided from our natural allies against the banker/political nexus, we will continue to fall one by one.

United we stand, divided we fall. This is Founding Fathers stuff.

Sorry I was such a prick to begin with. That's my mistake and I apologize for being an egregious asshole. My anger is at the banker/politico nexus, not you I just get angry when I see folks fall for their propaganda. I misdirected my anger and for that I am sorry. I was wrong there and I'm man enough to admit it.

On the planet I come from, we used to have these really cool concepts called:

  • Personal Responsibility
  • Caveat Emptor (Let the buyer beware)
  • Teaching our children principles
  • Fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice, shame on me
  • Punishing failure
  • Rewarding success

Maybe we could try one or two of them here on Earth, too!?! ... only if you're not too busy managing other people's lives for them, of course.....

Right and the bankers and politicians who create, manage and implement this debt system to usurp sovereignty have equal blame to an average greek citizen? Give me a break. Should the greeks have resisted the degree of benefits given? Of course. Did they understand the long term consequences of accepting those benefits? Obviously not, much of it was unknowable until the very recent past. Just because you are extremely educated and understand the dangers of debt and the welfare state, does not mean everyone does.

I'm all for personal responsibility, but in a HIGHLY questionable system with very opaque rules, where decisions are made behind closed doors this comes into question. Your list of values would make sense in a honorable republic with free information, fair elections etc. etc. However, in the REAL world, deals are made in a way that is unknown to the average person, it seems preposterous to blame the average person for the decisions of the elite. Especially when those decisions were quite obviously a Honey Pot trap.

I don't disagree with ANY of those things you listed, however it's amazing to me the degree to which informed ZHers will go on to blame the victim.

I might as well blame you for the Patriot Act because YOU didn't stop it from happening. Where's your personal responsibility in that? I guess YOU are the reason YOU are being surveilled left and right, in fact I will lay all the blame for the Trillions in debt, the wars, the repeal of most of the bill of rights at your feet. Oh what you don't like that? It wasn't your fault?

Then quit blaming the greeks for the same damn thing, unaccountable politicians following marching orders from the international banks. Some folks on this forum let ideology blind them to the big picture. I thought you saw more clearly than that I-dog.

Education - by parents and of peers - in personal responsibilty is a far more effective counter to fraud than any corrupt system of government. As Reagan once said: "Trust, but verify".

"The fraud has simply INCREASED under the weight of all your expanding government and precious regulations!!!"

Erm, that's BS, and you should know it. The financial deregulation that started in the Reagan years brought the us to where it is now, rather than prevented it. I guess you've forgotten to carry through on the 'verify' portion of your latest banal remark, either that or you're complicit in your wilful ignorance.

 Your non sequitur basically runs: if we have no laws against fraud it wouldn't exist anymore, which is only true in the most ridiculous sense. It's  like saying that if we struck the letter 'M' from the English language there would be no more murder. Weeeeeeaaaaak

And, speaking entirely for myself, quit trying to stuff your blather into my mouth. Your understanding of my politics is woefully inadequate. eg. IMO, there should be a sliding scale for regulation: the bigger the company, the more bureaucratic hoops it would have to jump through , and the greater the civil oversight to which it would be subjected. Alternately, the smaller the company the simpler the rules and the paperwork.

Thanks, but we're already chin deep in your ideal "I'm all right so fuck all the rest" world, with its two classes of people: 'suckers' and 'winners'. Where for their own gain the sociopathic 'winners' who prize greed and ruthless self interest over decency malevolently prey unchecked on the best human qualities of the majority, the 'suckers'.  Nice place you've created.

OH AND FOR GOOD MEASURE, because you seem to think it enhances arguments: !!!!!!!!!!!!!

This is all domestic politics.  The opposition was going to join in supporting the referendum so that it could oust him.

The one thing this does show is Pap thinks the no confidence vote will be close.  If he loses, no austerity implementation legislation will be possible for months because it will take that long to form a new government.

He has the ability to affect the world market right now and he knows it. Give the kid some candy and he'll calm down...candy in this cse is 10% more on the haircuts.  Richard Pryor once said in on of his great jokes, Right then is when I took out my knife, because if motherfuckers were gonna get cut, I wasn't going to be the only one."

My first reaction is wondering how Merkozy et al got to him. Something somewhere made him change his mind, and it wasn't anything to do with the "public good". G-Pap, your skeletons have been seriously rattled.

Someone needs to go back and record all this chaos from about 12 months ago until today - this seems to be the new playbook, so when the "crisis" comes to America we can be ready for these endless back and forth rumors (which I believe are timed so as to help the banks captialize with their electronic trading - the last rape before the lights are out) - if the nation is going to default we keep spreading lies to take advantage of the wild market swings so at least we can make some of our losses back - a out right default in the middle of the night is simply too harsh for banks to deal with - so the game is to extend and pretend so they can get theirs out and the dumb money in...

Merkozy must have threatened Greece with sezure by the debtors.  The threats are extreme when the banksters loose their lifestyle. The bankers want someone else to take their losses. Worked well in the US. Just pile on more debt for future generations.

So, lets see. Merkozy lured Papandreou out of his lair, staged a coup within his party, brought the opposition to heel, and just to hedge switched out the Armed Forces chiefs with more 'reliable' officers. Nice work, nice work.

No LD, your mistake is seeing this situation as 'Europe bending over backwards' while 'Greece is trying to stick it to them'.

Europe is being bent over all right, forwards, though not by the Greek people but by the very group of swindlers and their paid for politicians that the Greek people are trying to stick it to by exerting their sovereignty.

Big difference there.

I guess they really want to see what the Greek people have to say about the Global Syndicate taking over Greece... Instead of getting a peaceful referendum it looks like they may be in for the real thing. If anyone thinks Austerity will be accepted without a serious fight, think again. This thing will be completely out of hand by this time tommorow...Count on it

Oh the way the West lamented the poor conditions of those enslaved folks in Eastern Europe back when the misery was the cause of the Soviets.

Oh yes, back then we wailed to the high heavens over how terrible those people had it. And if Greece had been in some pickle that had to do with the Soviets, the politicians would be yapping about helping poor Greece and saving it and doing everything possible to win their trust blah blah blah.

Oh yes, if the Military Industrial Complex had something to gain, the welfare of the Greeks would have been our utmost concern.

But now that it’s about bailing out Western banksters who made bad bets lending Greece money, now that it’s about that the people can rot in hell. Why now they shouldn’t even get a vote. Truth is our government really doesn’t care if the Greeks are all put in fucking internment camps just so long as the banksters are bailed out.

But if they had owed the Soviets money, why that money should be forgiven and Greece made a “special friend” and helping Greece would be top priority. But they can eat shit and die now, because they owe the banksters.

And where the fuck is the US with a SINGLE WORD about democracy?

It's so important that we have this Arab Spring and the Arabs get to vote against their dictators, but voting no longer means a damned thing when it comes to Greece getting an auterity plan shoved down their throats to bail out French banksters?

Why is this not as much of a fundamental ascertion of democratic rights as anything else?

World markets greet the shutting down of democracy with Jubilation? And our government stands SILENT?

Where is Obama's youtube video to outreach to the Greek people? How did it just immediately become conventional wisdom that the people of a country actually voting on the terms of their own slavery is a BAD thing?

"Let Greece vote" should actually be an Obama rallying cry. Instead he silently goes along with the notion that these people voting is somehow a bad thing.

We are seeing the difference between reading about revolutions in the history books vs. watching how they play out in real time. In real time the power elites are given 1,000 chances to do what is right. And 1,000 out of 1,000 times they chose to defend their money and power instead. They have years and years in which to change course.

And when the people finally revolt they get called radicals. But aren't the leaders who are given 1,000 chances to do what is right and refuse each and every time, aren't THEY the radicals and the revolution merely a RESPONSE to their radicalism?

We are seeing in real time how the power elites. given 1,000 opportunities to change course, instead DEMAND absolutely DEMAND, INSIST, are absolutely hell bent on having the people rise up and kill them.
