Live Feed From Syntagma Square

Tyler Durden's picture

With Greek politicians on the verge of selling out the population more than ever before only to preserve the country's ability to be an ECB toll stop, where it takes Troika money and promptly pays Greek creditor banks, the time to return to the Syntagma Square webcam has arrived especially since tonight is the night when the population learns if Greece will comply once again with Troika demands for record austerity or finally cut the cord. Because with the latest round of troika demands being that "the minimum wage be cut to less than 600 euros ($790) a month and that at least one holiday allowance, the so-called 13th and 14th wages, be abolished, Mega TV said" and that "pensions paid by supplementary funds should be cut by 35 percent" it the local population believes that waving goodbye to one's retirement to fund a bank's bonus is worth it, then it deserves all the bending over it gets.

And for those wondering, here is a reminder how out of every euro in bialouts, only 19 cents actually goes toward the country (and of that we assume a big portion is to fund European military purchases).

Greek financials? I thought that was mythology.

Only Greek financials are mythology?

I don't know. It is all Greek to me.

Geez, this is gross but everytime I see Syntagma Square I dyslexia it as Smegma Square.   It's cheesy I know.

But... but... they need BANKS, and ROADS. Where will the people get their money from if all the banks close down? And nobody will ever again be able to drive anywhere if the government can't build more roads! /sarc


Sh*t Statists Say to Libertarians

I think of Stygmata Square, dripping with the blood of a "Hail Mary".

The Superbowl epitomizes the incredible nauseating narcissism of Americans! Because who ever wins today they call themselves "World Champions?? .... Last we checked no one else plays your fucking barbaric game apart from the Canadians! And you can bet your teleprompter too, that celebrity wanna be Obamwana will get his photo op next week With the winners!

Giants 4  Pats 1, I have that on good authority...

Buddy, I agree with the narcissism part, but let's get a few things straight:

1) Canadians play Canadian football, which is slightly different from American football. There's no Canadian teams in the NFL.

2) Well, if the only people who play this game in the world are the Americans - then guess what? The winners are the "World Champions". It annoys me when they do it for the NBA or in baseball, because there are other countries who play basketball and baseball at a very high level, but not for the NFL.

As for "fucking barbaric" - I think rugby or Australian Rules football are more intense and harder than NFL. NFL players strike me as a bunch of primadonnas compared to rugby union or AFL players.

no equipment, weight differences between players can be 100 lbs and the idea is to create overlaps whereby the 165 er has to take down a 265 lb rhino....aka Jona F>>> Lomu

NFL is for wanna be's. Fucking helmets, bunch of panty soilers sucking from the tit on the sidelines every five minutes. 80 fkg minutes non stop organized MMA = rugby

Hahaha, wouldn't have expected anything less from a Kiwi! +1 for Jonah Lomu - still remember him taking on 6 French players in the 1999 RWC and scoring a try.

One of the great things about rugby - no matter how hard and physical it gets, the minute it looks like a brawl is imminent, the ref steps in. Fighting is a strict no-no. Same in AFL and even NFL for that matter. Unlike hockey - hockey is a great game, but the fights take away from the game.

All bankers should work for minimum wage! They take no risk but are paid for taking huge risk.

When the banks are really just a laundering operation for the international drug cartels, I doubt they'll ever compromise this institution.

its a well played game.... with the unknown outcome.

Just like Greek Sex.  Also a mythology (at least according to my wife)...

Is your wife Greek, or are you?

"They" will bend over, as usual! Rioting won't help, unless it's NATIONWIDE and absolutely VIOLENT! Military may then "take over" once again and DO THE DEAL anyways...they need to eat too, right?!

BUT(there alwways seems to be a "but") if, only if, there is no bending over, tomorrow all will be LIMIT DOWN, and that, folks, quite violently! BUT..Never Mind...Bending Over to Bancheros seems to be national sports these days! I personally won't bet on it!

Eally Ucked's picture

Yeah, miltary is so efficient (killing your own and enemies at the same time) that they should take over and fix that shit. As all of us know military are usually big thinkers, bright and open minds, finding the best solutions.

As someone pointed out, Super Bowl is starting in 6hrs. While everyone is watching the big game, Greece might be declaring bankrupcy... Talk about announcing when nobody is paying attention.  

_ConanTheLibertarian_'s picture

Well, in Europe we don't have Super Bowl. The sheeple watch other stupid games here...

It's interesting how the reporter refers to Papademos as "so called Prime Minister"...

The bitch of it is that it's not only Europe who is paying for this shit. The American taxpayer is also bearing the burden via IMF funding. Most Americans, even reasonably well-educated Americans (yes we do have a few of those), have absolutely no clue because this fact is intentionally obscured from public scrutiny.

ucsbcanuck's picture

So is the Canadian taxpayer. Flaherty our Fin Min tries to make it look like we're not involved though.

I dont get it. If they cannot afford minimal wage at 600€ cause its too low why the hell Slovak republic have to finance them. Minimal wage in Slovak republic is 327,20€. This is sick.

Rynak's picture

Whom exactly do you mean with "finance them"? Nations? Umm yeah, you indeed "don't get it".

whisp's picture

SR is part of EFSF and ESM. Without next blackhole package for Greece they are toast. I don't believe in monstrous conspirations. If they want the same live, they deny reality. Look at them Greece politics are bigger speculators than hedge funds.

Rynak's picture

Don't use terms of which you have no clue what they mean.... among them, the term "speculator", propaganda bitch.

One of the great endings to a movie.

"Zorba is able to convince Bates that failure is an inescapable part of life, and that only by constantly tasting defeat can one truly enjoy life's victories."

Mr Lennon Hendrix's picture

It looks like Occupy:  A group gathering discussing how they lost their homes, they don't drink expensive alcohol anymore, their wives left them. 

When the We won't get any traction until the movement changes from "me, me, me" to we.

One person can throw a cocktail, but when everyone marches in unity for not just themselves but others, we will have the change we seek.

MLH: "their wives left them"!  Say it isn't so.  You mean when the money goes out the door the romance isn't far behind?

This is the Super Bowl: The Troika vs. The Greeks. The loser (or maybe the winner) gets to go into default and then bankruptcy. Greek foods and retsina go well with this superbowl.

The third superbowl is over in Syria where it's the Sunnis vs. the Alawites and the loser gets to be exterminated. Recommended refreshments for this super bowl include Syrian and Lebanese food along with strong tea and coffee (You can sneak a shot into the coffee but don't let the mullahs catch you)

Christophe2's picture

Seeing how good you are at parroting state propaganda, you might be better suited to the Super Bowl crowd.


Syria isn't Sunnis vs. Alawites: it's Sunnis, Alawites and remaining minorities united against the NWO-backed al-CIAda 'rebel' thugs that have been assassinating thousands of innocent police officers and civilians.

=> far better Assad's socialist regime than the attacking NWO/bankster/Israeli neo-liberal regime.

Can't tell how many people are there but they appear to be extremely there some kind of time as to when they will know? 

Sabibaby's picture

I think the Super Bowl is being broadcast for the people of Greece. Everyone is tailgating and standing around trying to find a good seat for the game. It's so exciting because the entire world is getting ready for the Super Bowl right now and watching them prepare is televised.
