Kiss Tax Revenues Goodbye - Greek Civil Insubordination Takes On A Surreal Twist

Tyler Durden's picture


While we understand the motive of Greeks to cripple the financial nerve center of the country by effectively immobilizing the finance ministry and subjecting the country to a 9 day shutdown, we are yet to witness the ingenuity of the people, when angry, to completely lock down the country's financial apparatus, especially when it comes to the revenue side of the ledger. Behold the latest reason why the next time the Troika does its paper napkin "assessment" of the Greek deficit to GDP it will be double digits, and have a 2 handle.

As Bloomberg reports: "The GENOP union, which represents workers at Public Power Corp SA, has blocked access to the building where company bills are issued in Athens to protest a property tax which is to be paid via electricity bills, state- run Athens News Agency reported, without citing anyone." That's right: one needs actual physical presence in Greece in order to be able to enact the key component of the most recent Troika "compromise." Which the government does not have. This leaves two options: risk an all out civil war as G-Pap lets the police out and begins a confrontation between the broader population and the government or, more likely, do nothing, hope nobody in Germany realizes that Greece is doing absolutely nothing to collect taxes, and continue the status quo charade, which is one where Greece is merely a conduit for the ECB to fund Greece so it in turn can fund European banks with interest payments and in the process preserve some credibility in the Euro, and make the jobs of JCT, and soon, Mario Draghi, non-redundant.

In light of all this, we wonder just how much sabotage may have been a factor in the recent discovery that Greece had run out of ink to print tax forms with. A conservative estimate? 100%.

Perhaps massive tax insubordination is the only thing the US government will listen to.  Tea Party and OWS are great starts, but all of those people could stop paying their ponzi world tax and change would come swiftly.

I'm just gonna go out on a limb here and guess that the OWS protesters probably aren't the same folks as J6P, nose to the grindstone taxpayer...  In other words, a tax revolt by OWS is no different than what they're currently doing, i.e. not paying taxes.  If you're getting your titties painted on the world stage, you probably don't have a job nor any prospects for one...  (unless it involves titty painting).

I don't know how many more ways the Greeks can say this, but unless the Euros have more money for the Greeks, the Euros can take a hike.  Every  Greek from the bottom to the top agree: we're are not paying.

42 percent of Germans who have a household net income of 4000 € and more are prepared [willing] to pay more taxes. Similarly high (43 percent) is the percentage in the income class 3000-4000 € net per month. Even some 33% of people who earn less than 3000 € net per month would pay more.

Fine for the Greeks. No need to buy ink there. Germans are proud to pay.

The Federal income tax was unconstitutional as a disproportionate tax until the 16th Amendent changed the constitutional.

The discussion is unnecessary.  Paying taxes is voluntary, or so insists Harry Reid.

and Harry Reid is correct. your W4 is an APPLICATION, which means you voluntarily enter into contract with the IRS. no contract is valid if it is entered into under duress or if one party is compelled to enter; therefore, the contract MUST be voluntary by Law.


of course, almost no one actually knows this fact. given the fact that Harry Reid KNOWS it is voluntary, what do you want to bet he doesn't pay federal income tax?

Check out the Telecommunications Act- passed under Reagen, I think. broke down the rules barring excessive and vertical ownership of the media in the U.S. Anyway, around 30 years ago, media ownership suddenly concentrated in the hands of a few large corporations. Prior to that it was owned by lots of small guys and there was a chance for the truth to come out. After that, all the wisdom of the past including anti trust etc was ignored.

Steam Powered Electric Generating Set

Using 12 volt RV appliances will allow you to power everything from a bank of batteries. Once a week you fire up the boiler and recharge that battery bank. You can burn your trash in the boiler along with wood pallets available free from big box retailers. If you live in coal country you can buy a pickup truck load cheap. Natural Gas is another option and you can use it for lighting and refrigeration too.

Nice thought, very poorly implemented and way overpriced.  I guess I should start reselling my own designs, and perhaps work up a nice steam version.  Of course, steam has a lot of liability and reliability issues, it's not a set and forget thing -- keeping the fire between "not enough steam" and "not blowing off excess or exploding" isn't for the average couch potato who can't keep a woodstove regulated.

An auto alternator is pictured.  In tests here, there was nothing better at turning shaft energy into heat, not electricity than those nasty things.  My own design uses a surplus DC generator from a P51 Mustang, and it's loafing and making lots of electricity as I type, running on a high compression Honda fixed plant gasoline engine, and giving me btu->electricity at a comparable efficiency to a big power plant - high 30's %.

Anybody needing to be off grid is going to have PV panels and batteries, as I do, and you want a "Right sized" generator.  You ruin batteries cycling them too much or charging and discharging them too quick.  Some of the newer (still gasoline) inverter generators do well, but it's pointless for home use to generate AC, then need a battery charger to change it back to DC, losing energy both ways.  Also pointless to have an AC generator spinning full RPM even under light loads, as all the older non inverter models do.  My DC design runs the gas engine on the efficiency peak at all times...far cheaper to operate.

Steam is going to be fun, and you can do that solar-dynamic too.  Nowadays we have better stuff than the old horse-hide piston rings they had back in the day.  Most compressed air hydrualic cylinders are cheap, long lived, and will run in wet steam fine.

You might enjoy fishing around on this forum a little:

Some stuff about my own alt energy systems.  I've been completely off the grid since 1979.

As the officers advanced, they were pelted with bricks. One injured Mr Tanner's hand, another tore a chunk from the flank of his horse, Keswick.

"I couldn't shake hands for about six months," he recalls, adding that other officers suffered psychologically afterwards.

For six hours after the crowds had dispersed from Trafalgar Square, mounted police "chased incidents" around central London.

That's almost precisely my own situation.  If you buy bare land in the far boonies, and just build on it, never get a building permit (they're barns, man!) and don't get power co power piped in (which is who enforces you needing a building permit - power company is a good name for more than one reason) - you just pay taxes on the land, and on your "barn".  I did this myself, get water from one of the artesian springs I own, made a hidden drainfield, and run on solar-pv power (including a physics lab and machine shop) with rare needs for backup generator.  Saves almost the cost of the system every year in taxes alone.

The next incident is the ethnic cleansing carried out in the US during the 1920s which the US supreme court approved (in a rigged case):
Carrie Buck v. James Hendren Bell, Superintendent of State Colony
for Epileptics and Feeble Minded
Citations 274 U.S. 200 (more)
47 S. Ct. 584; 71 L. Ed. 1000
The ruling was written by Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr. In
support of his argument that the interest of the states in a "pure"
gene pool outweighed the interest of individuals in their bodily
integrity, he argued: We have seen more than once that the
public welfare may call upon the best citizens for their lives. It
would be strange if it could not call upon those who already sap
the strength of the State for these lesser sacrifices, often not
felt to be such by those concerned, in order to prevent our being
swamped with incompetence. It is better for all the world, if
instead of waiting to execute degenerate offspring for crime, or to
let them starve for their imbecility, society can prevent those who
are manifestly unfit from continuing their kind. The principle that
sustains compulsory vaccination is broad enough to cover cutting
the Fallopian tubes.
Holmes concluded his argument with the infamous phrase "Three
generations of imbeciles are enough".
They were unable to carry out the thorough, documented process for lack of database technology. Prescott Bush, Carnegie, Rockefeller foundations were all behind this.
Edwin Black, jewish researcher of the German ethnic cleansing in the 1940s, found their older history when he found the IBM Nazi connection. IBM's database technology was what allowed the Germans to ethnic cleanse you, your sister, brother, cousins etc. That is why the earlier one failed. He wrote a couple of books including Nazi Nexus and War on the Weak. Here's a chat about War on the Weak:
This man also states that there was a connection between the Rockefeller foundation and Mengele's overseer. It's in one of his chats. See, it wasn't just a business connection between Thyssen and Bush; it was part of a much larger ethos and yes, conspiracy.
They were also behind a coup attempt in 1933:
During the 1950s Prescott Bush ran for the US senate and lost when a last minute rumor linking him with the old Birth Control League (yes, you heard correctly: the BIRTH CONTROL LEAGUE which is shy George HW Bush was called "rubbers" as in condoms when he was in Congress in the sixties pushing this:
Congressional record in the
Population Task Force
Among Bush's most important contributions to the neo-Malthusian cause while
in Congress was his role in the Republican Task Force on Earth Resources
and Population. The task force, which Bush helped found and then chaired,
churned out a steady stream of propaganda claiming that the world was
already seriously overpopulated; that there was a fixed limit to natural
resources and that this limit was rapidly being reached; and that the
environment and natural species were being sacrificed to human progress.
Bush's task force sought to accredit the idea that the human race was being
"down bred," or reduced in genetic qualities by the population growth among
blacks and other non-white and hence allegedly inferior races at a time
when the Anglo-Saxons were hardly able to prevent their numbers from
Comprised of over 20 Republican Congressmen, Bush's Task Force was a kind
of Malthusian vanguard organization which heard testimony from assorted
"race scientists," sponsored legislation and otherwise propagandized the
zero-growth outlook. In its 50-odd hearings during these years, the task
force provided a public forum to nearly every well-known zero-growth
fanatic, from Paul Ehrlich, founder of Zero Population Growth (ZPG), to
race scientist William Shockley, to the key zero-growth advocates infesting
the federal bureaucracy.
Giving a prestigious congressional platform to a discredited racist
charlatan like William Shockley in the year after the assassination of Dr.
Martin Luther King, points up the arrogance of Bush's commitment to
eugenics. Shockley, like his co-thinker Arthur Jensen, had caused a furor
during the 1960s by advancing his thesis, already repeatedly disproven,
that blacks were genetically inferior to whites in cognitive faculties and
intelligence. In the same year in which Bush invited him to appear before
the GOP task force, Shockley had written: "Our nobly intended welfare
programs may be encouraging dysgenics -- retrogressive evolution through
disproportionate reproduction of the genetically disadvantaged.... We fear
that 'fatuous beliefs' in the power of welfare money, unaided by eugenic
foresight, may contribute to a decline of human quality for all segments of
During hearings on the Social Security amendments, Bush and witness
Alan Guttmacher had the following colloquy: Bush: Is there any
[opposition to Planned Parenthood] from any other organizations or
groups, civil rights groups?
Guttmacher: We do have problems. We are in a sensitive area in
regard particularly to the Negro. There are some elements in the
Negro group that feel we are trying to keep down the numbers. We are
very sensitive to this. We have a community relations department
headed by a most capable Negro social worker to try to handle that
part of the problem. This does, of course, cause us a good bit of
Bush: I appreciate that. For the record, I would like to say I am
1,000 percent in accord with the goals of your organization. I
think perhaps more than any other type of organization you can do
more in the field of poverty and mental health and everything else
than any other group that I can think of. I commend you.
This is an excerpt of Bush's unauthorized biography:
They killed Martin Luther King as his family's wrongful death civil suit against the CIA et al jury said in the late nineties. No MSM covered it. They also killed Malcolm X, JFK and a lot of other people. A credible JFK investigation :
List of people they've murdered (google their names and their stories will come up):
Congressmen Larry McDonald, Sonny Bono and Larkin
USMC Colonel Sabow
Pulitzer Prize winner Gary Webb
Journalist Danny Casolaro
Ex-mil intel Steve Kangas who wrote the great "Origins of the Overclass" :
US Special Forces Colonels Edward P Cutolo, Baker, and one other whose name escapes me (all in the same incident).
Here's International Committee of the Red Cross investigator David Guyyat on this incident and background info:
As you can see, they are the real drug cartels and here's a good recap of what is known about their activities:
Here's where he first came to light when opposing CIA director Deutch ( a Bush stooge) in a LA townhall after Iran Contra came to light (Ricky Ross is an interesting figure in this case)
Dois Gene "Chip" Tatum who wrote the Tatum Chronicles (very interesting) and whose testimony you can find on YouTube in an interview with 30 year FBI veteran Ted Gunderson (the ones on the beach have more info):
This man's testimony confirms the accusations:
Anyways, a good recap in written form of the decades long CIA drug trafficking is Rodney Stich's Drugging America: A Trojan Horse:
So, the old Birth Control league became Family Planning after WWII when eugenics became taboo. Margaret Sanger was their shill. I and many others believe the "war on drugs is really their new ethnic cleansing technique:
The "war on drugs" results:
How it is done:
The overall picture:
Keep in mind George HW Bush's intent while in Congress (see above) for this man above any other is the architect of the modern day "war on drugs" (as opposed to Prohibition which was also their little fascist games). Yet, if you can believe it, he founded the Medellin Cartel with Jorge Luis Ochoa and Pablo Escobar.
Most of the results are on target.
Ok so now you have some idea of who these people are, where they come from and how they literally get away with genocide. The why is because it's class warfare and lust for empire. The 1960s Great Society "war on poverty" made them rebel following Ayn Rand's (a Rothschild concubine) Atlas Shrugged ethos which also fits with their offshoring (gutting) of the US economy.
Most of the people mentioned on here have YouTube vids and plenty of documentation. Just google them.
Anyways, if you google all these names and situations, read patiently for weeks, you'll get the full picture. Oh, here's another good documentary on the Bushes:

What is even more amazing is that it's at least two weeks away before anyone will know what the plan of a plan to make plans will even unveil--if anything. Yet capital markets are behaving as though the world over is fixed and we're back to some global growth story. With NYSE short interest declining prepepitously, with the 1220 resistence now already fast approraching, and Europe just a couple weeks away from exploding unless Europe unites to print money + agree to just whom benefits from this printed money first, second, third, and so on, and can put the brakes on an economy going into free-fall, with Greece citizens, German Citizens, Slovak Citizens, etc. all sitting in completely different idealism camps, then fuck's almost time to go massively short, because the risk to reward is starting to make it worth it IMO.

Plus, who isn't skeptical of these market sticksaves? The market broke through support JUST ONE WEKK AGO Monday, competely tanked right fucking through it at 1120 all the way down to 1080, and then proceeded to literally turn on a dime for no reason at all--this before even Merkozy statement while Banks were imploding in EZ--and have since shredded higher nearly every single day. This tell me one thing: we're close to crashing. With short interest way way down, it may very well NOW.

The public power corp was one of the state "assets" originally proposed for sale in order to raise funds to reduce the deficit. There were no takers due the the well-known fact that the workers are the most miliantly unionized in Greece.

Greece = AIG 

Nothing more than a conduit to channel Eurozone taxpayer money to banks that made bad bets.  The difference is that AIG was a willing host - just another parasite.  Methinks worldwide the hosts are recognizing the attached vampire squid, and are preparing to pluck them out.  Remember to get the tick head out along with the tick, otherwise it might get infected.
