Headline Of The Day: "Funds Found To Help Greece's Homeless"

Tyler Durden's picture





 

Forget farce. Forget tragicomedy. Frankly, we are out of words to describe what is happening in Greece, Europe, and, actually - the world. Luckily, Kathimerini has just the headline, and associated story, to help us through this moment of verbal crisis. In one year this headline will be appearing in all insolvent countries (pretty much all of them), who will have pledged all of their sovereign assets as cash collateral, promptly used up by creditors to pay their interest payments using "escrow accounts" which make the debtor nation merely a fund flow intermediary with a seasonally unadjusted beggar-to-population ratio of 100%.

Funds found to help Greece's homeless

 

Greece is to spend 800,000 euros on housing and feeding homeless people amid concern about the growing number of people living on the streets of Athens and Thessaloniki in wet and cold conditions.

 

Health Minister Andreas Loverdos announced on Monday that 400,000 euros of public money would be given to the City of Athens and 100,000 to Thessaloniki Municipality. Another 300,000 is to be given to the Church of Greece so it can keep up its soup kitchens. The Church says it feeds some 250,000 people, not just the homeless, every day.

 

The two municipalities are to spend the funds on renting hotels in the two cities that can house homeless people. Deputy Health Minister Markos Bolaris said one hotel in Athens had offered to provide rooms for 3 euros per night.

 

Bolaris added that a ministry team is working on a draft law to legally classify homeless people into several categories, including those sleeping on the streets and those who live in substandard properties.

Actually, we are still out of words.

Fractional Reserve Bankster's Paradise

sung by lil' Napoleon

Written by Benny & The Inkjets

 

As I walk through the valley of the shadow of debt
I take a look of my life, and realise there's nutin' left
'Cuz I've been brassin' and laughing so long that
Even my laid off BofA teller thinks my mind's gone
But I ain't never crossed a central bankster who didn't deserve it
Used to cap them in the ass, you know that's not unheard of


You'd better watch how you're talking and where you walking

I really hate to trip but fiat took my hope

What was I thinkin', should've bought more gold


As they print I see myself in the ink smoke, FOOL.
I'm the kind of g that little homies wanna be
Like on my knees in the night sayin prayers under Marriner Eccles street light

Yeaaa...

[Chorus]

Bin spending most their lifes livin in a Fractional Reserve Bankster's Paradise

Bin spending most their lifes livin in a Fractional Reserve Bankster's Paradise

Keep spending most their lifes livin in a Fractional Reserve Bankster's Paradise

Instead, he will meet tonight with the so- called troika, comprising the European Commission, the ECB and the IMF, to put the final touches to terms required for a 130 billion-euro ($172 billion) rescue package, the spokeswoman said.

Ummm, that's pretty much standard operating procedure for any number of US states, including the District of Columbia. Of course, relatives of those running the welfare programs are usually the shadow owners of the hotels/motels in question. In DC, for instance, they used to bus homeless from one hotel during the day to a different one where they slept because some bureaucrat with a relative owning a couple of busses decided that spending all day in the motel was a violation of civil rights, since the motel in question was off a highway with literally nothing around it and no public transportation.

The waste and fraud in welfare spending is legion.

Ditto for America. It's coming here too. 

The middle class in America is slowly being pushed down to poverty via currency debasement. 

Another 2 - 3 years should do it.  USD will be worthless.

However people smart enough to trade dollars for gold, silver, and other commodities now, while dollars still have some value, will be wealthy. 

But you need to get crackin', don't wait around, USD has already lost 40% of its value since 2007.

(Have you received a 67% raise in pay since 2007 to make up for it?  Probably not.)

(Make that a 75% raise.  You're in a higher tax bracket.)

Eat and stay warm at the same time..

Manthong’s recipe for cooked cheese:

Beat and egg or two in bowl.
Take a chunk of Greek Kasseri cheese, get it wet with the egg and coat it with flour
Fry it over a low heat in a little olive oil until it browns and softens a bit.. flip it and continue until the thing gets soft and hot.
Have a half cup of lemon juice ready for the next part.
Pour a half pint of Everclear over it and light it. Then douse it with the lemon juice.

I call the dish “Flaming Greek Nagasaki”. 
Oh.. It helps to have a Nomex apron, gloves and full face visor on..

Pensions, well that money is all gone. Greek pension funds own Greek EUR35B bonds under the PSI this will become close to EUR8B. But the ECB, well their Greek bond holdings are not subject to any haircut.

Greece is a great country and I have had lots of

great holidays there before they joint the euro.

Tourism was always an important part of their

income but got destroyed by the expensive euro.

They got to borrow very cheap to build a welfare

state,long term this was a shitty deal.

Just hate to see how propaganda is destroying

and raping my girl Greece,who has given me

so much joy and pleasure(think ouzo,girls and beach

party's)

GET RID OF THE TROIKA

Greece is showing us what happens when the printing press is turned off. 

They can't roll over their enormous debt (and borrow more), the Greek government runs out of money, it can't pay employees, it can't pay those inflated pensions anymore, all those people start rioting, the economy grinds to a halt, and Greece slides into anarchy.

Wait till the weather warms up.  It'll be civil war in Greece.

Fortunately we don't have to worry about that here in America.   Ben will print all the money he has to.

But our end will be the same as Greece.  The dollar will become worthless, people will riot, the economy will grind to a halt, and we'll have civil war here in America.

L0L!!!

when i got to the "ministry team" i had trouble seeing whether it was from the "Church of Greece"  or  the health "ministry"

turned out to be the latter, and "several classifications of homeless types" reminds me to mention, again, how a negative income tax would wax the nannies nicely, in almost any nation,  which is why those nanny unions are so wunnerful, wunnerful, too, isn't it?

if a negative tax structure would lessen the need for law "enforcement overhead", then it would be REALLY shitty for "the economy" i'd wager, too;  wouldn't you? 

yeah... that one!

"Another 300,000 is to be given to the Church of Greece so it can keep up its soup kitchens. The Church says it feeds some 250,000 people, not just the homeless, every day."

Coming to a Catholic church near you & all over the world...

Governments will become increasingly beholden to the richest organization in the world, the Catholic church, to help provide minimal subsistence to their barely surviving populations around the globe...

And since most will be disgusted with the old banking & financial system, the Vatican bank will step into the void as the new "reputable bank" (despite its ties with the Mafia & money laundering, etc).

Many will see this as lifesaving...but it will be anything but...

Next time you're hungry and homeless be sure to ask for shelter and a meal from the Atheist Society.

Banksters been sayin' Greece needs growth.

Now they have lots of growth in the homeless.

Must be bullish. Time to raise the cut to 18 cents for Greece and 82 for us...

This whole 'escrow account' deal is Germany's overseer warmed over - and the Greek politicos are gonna go for it? Don't think so, but with a Goldman guy as appointed PM, the banks gonna get their 80% of the so-called bail-out funds no matter what.

At least it is now really clear who is getting bailed out - no wait, it has been clear for a long time...

and these homeless have anything to do with the crisis? or whats the idea here?

lots of them do have

but consider that during the last two years almost 3000 illegal foreign immigrants cross the greek-turkish border each month and they are all driven to Athens City Center, where they circulate among the other homeless

so, the account is for them too and not only for the Greek homeless (they live in appartments in numbers of 20, 30, 50, stealing, robbing, raping, killing each other and greek people also, KIDDNAPPING EACHOTHER FOR MONEY, prostituting, trafficking, drug dealing)

they come all from Magrebian and Afroasian countries (pakistan, nigeria, somalia, algeria, etc)

There is this Dublin II Treaty, which prohibits Greece to let them flow into Europe, so Greece is transformed into an huge illegal immigrants open camp, with all the negative consequences on the population and on the wages too.

Not to speak about the criminality increase (60% of the imprisoned are illegal immigrants for heavy crimes - murdering elder people, raping and robbing elder Greek women which die after their torture...)

This Mr. Bolaris  is Pasok, the party which has PROMISED GREEK CITIZENSHIP TO EVERYBODY.

...On the other hand,

the Catholic church could be found guilty, in Internetional Court,  of crimes against children, and ordered to pay an amount equal to ALL global sovereign debt.

 Now that would REALLY even things up!

"Greece is to spend 800,000 euros on housing and feeding homeless people amid concern about the growing number of people living on the streets of Athens and Thessaloniki in wet and cold conditions."

 

I believe that one sit-down dinner for the delegates to Davos cost more than 800,000 Euros.

Don't worry, it is just 800,000... Just a drop in the hat when you can't calculate how much money you owe everyone else.

The future is the past.  My heart goes out to the greeks.  On the other hand, they made the bed they are having to lie on.  I don't think 800K euros will buy many beds for long.

Eight hundred thousand Euros are going to be allocated to help the homeless in Greece.  That's a lot.

Loan sharks knew that if they took the dollars printing machines under their control they could suffocate the world ...they could initially suffocate USA and after taking the USA from the Americans, they could move and suffocate the whole world and take the countries from their people.

FED printed cheap money and loansharking multiplied this money in an unnatural way within the American economy boarders and they discarded them abroad so that they did not threaten USA. USA became the first state in the world with artificial “breathing”...

It cannot be possible but just in the USA for only the last year, more than one million houses were seized. It cannot be impossible but the New World has returned to tents and shelters ..has returned to the ages of Columbus. It cannot be possible that we allow to a few loan sharks looting the toils and the assets of people...

 a draft law to legally classify homeless people into several categories

 

someone will have to poll the homeless in the field and make paperwork in the office. bullish for jobs!

after work, clerks are welcomed to join the homeless.
