Yes! We Cannes!
You guys laugh.
But G-Pap finally saw the light and gave his people the vote.
Then Obama, Merkel, and Zarkosy took away their sovereign rights.
This is a day that will live in infamy.
What a pisser!
Obama thinking, "Say what you will about the French, but they sure have some nice shoes."
Nicolas, you have a wee wee-wee, oui?
AND NO BALLS.
I see it's not just my bailout 'package' that's bigger than yours.
"Is that a Certs roll in your pocket, or are you just glad to see me...?"
"I can clearly see that YOUR father was not from Kenya...!"
"Habemus papam ! Uh, sorry, Wrong teleprompter."
"I wondered where she was..."
"Who the fuck put my teleprompter on the fuckin' floor?"
Pardon! Pardon! Pardon! You are peeing on my shoe.....

"...we already have the Holy Grail..."
POSUS is thinking, 'When will the NBA season start? Damn this is boring.'
No He is looking to a chair under Sarkozy, which he use at all times to increase his height while he was giving a speech.
Obama: "Why does he have a hard-on everytime I am standing next to him?"
I agree with you. That referendum was ever going to happen as long as Merkozy were drawing breath.
They failed to bully G-Pap into cancelling it yesterday, so they just bullied his cabinet into forcing him out and replacing him with an Ex ECB VP, who also used to work for the Fed. He'll make sure this 'Democracy' business doesn't intrude on the grand plan again.
This has played out longer and with more surprises than expected. This is getting exciting. I promise you it aint over and there will be more fireworks. This is great!
paarsons, read the news. it's the Greek President and the majority of the Greek cabinet that don't want this referendum
Quintus, if France and Germany would have that much influence on the Greek Gov, things in the last month would not have been so bumpy
Bumpy how? Apart from the last 3 days when G-Pap went off-message, every single vote in the Greek Parliament has gone precisely the way Merkozy would have wished with a maximum of one (1) vote by the governing party going the 'Wrong' way.
Any previous 'Bumpiness' has been caused by those annoying 'Public' fellows and their ridiculous ideas about having some kind of say in what the government were doing in their name.
so your theory is that France and Germany have some arcane powers over the whole Greek Parliamentary Majority? Or are they bullying the whole Parliament?
mhhh.... strange, I thought they were cutting a very cushy deal for Greece. Of course this does not fit with the "Greece is being raped" story that some like so much.
You honestly think they don't? Honestly? How quaint. :-)
If Greece and France/Germany are Equal, then I guess we'll be seeing MerkozyPap meetings in future where everyone has an equal input into policy making.
Quintus, I refuse to see behind every bloody decision taken by an elected parliament a shady pushing by the Powers that Be. It's as least as quaint. Of course several MPs are bought, but you misunderstand the Greeks if you think that they are not scared by the options they have. I've spent quite a lot of time in Greece, by the way, and will not underestimate how both cleptocratic and nationalistic they are.
I am not suggesting that they're all bent and corrupt, although many of them may well be.
The fact is that the Greek Parliament is effectively a 'Middle Manager' in the larger corporation that is the EU. Finances, Promotions through the EU ranks and various other powers of patronage are dispensed by the CEO (Merkozy) in return for running their bit of business as they are told.
When the CEO says there is a new strategy and we want you to implement it, that is what the Greek parliament does. It is clear that power within the EU comes from above, not from the voters below.
As in the Irish example, if the Greek opposition comes to power as a result of these events, I guarantee that they will continue with the policies of their predecessors, because that is the corporate strategy. The people can vote to change the middle-management faces, but not the corporate strategy.
note how in the back it's written:
"(a) new world - new ideas
now I know this G20 is going to be different from all the others, look what we will get...
They tried. " hope and change". But the brotha laid claim to that rap.
yes, yes, but a new world! we get a new world!
wait, I forgot, we already got a new world in 1492. Never mind...
(by the way, your avatar is at least as offensive as mine - why is it that every nice pair of boobs are booed down here in ZH while your dirty sack is ok?)
Do us a favor and take that avatar off - no one wants to see your balls asshole.
Come on, buddy. Your sack is nothing special. Do you see a lot of labia avatars on here?
I left my computer on the other day and my 5 year old boy saw your avatar. I came into my office and found him squinting at the screen. He said, "Dad, is that some guy's sack?"I saw what he was looking at and answered, "I think so. I've never seen one from that angle. Neither should you."
Confused, he said, "But dad, normally a man would only see someone's saggy sack from that angle if they were about to start gagging on it. My teacher says there's nothing wrong with that. She showed us with a banana. But this looks a lot less appealing than the banana."
"Right, son. Stick with bananas. But eat it normally, and if it has balls attached, toss it."
"But what about this guy, dad? Why does he want everyone to look at his balls?"
"They're probably not his balls, son. He's probably a pretty heavy-hitting homo, and doesn't like to be separated from his porn for too long. So long as he posts on a page, he's got something to look at when his libido gets up a bit. He's too stupid to figure out that he could have a video playing while he looks at the site, and spare the rest of us the really sad sack. Now let's go to the park and find you a girlfriend."

propaganda shills. But don't take offense, you are probably
just suffering from public TV education and to have gotten a job at an European Ministry of Truth you should be even more stupid, not just brainwashed.
While I am very glad about the referendum, I am positive he did not do it out of the kindness of his heart. G-Pap pushed things as far as he possibly could. He and other politicians now literally fear for their life. He would not have switched all his military leaders unless there were strong rumblings of serious, serious trouble.
Now they are trying to get him out of the way so as to unbind themselves from the referendum. They figure new leader, new bullshit and hopefully the referendum promise will be forgotten. That pig Venizelos is already "crowing" against the referendum.
sorry, but screw the vote...what G pap pulled was completely unacceptable. why didnt he get his house in order a year ago? two years ago?
Hey Barry, I hear that your CNN didn't make it to this press conference...they couldn't find Cannes, let alone France.
Barry, you really DO need education reform in your country!
Obama: Who's tickling my weener? Is that you down there Angela?
Ok, fine... [sigh]
Is this about Iran?
"The frog´s dick is a lot smaller than mine, hehe!"
Man you tore his ass good.
Hey, you ever go to Man's Country in Chicago?
Obama: Nice, bigger than on skype
Wanna swap wives?
Mr. Sarkozy, I'm prepared to give you one trillion dollars...
... for one night with your wife.

The Greek situation; is it the immolation of Brunnhilde or merely taking out the trash?
We're bringing SUV-1 up the Champs-Élysées now sir. The first lady and her BFFs have maxed out the cargo capacity of the escort vehicles with their recent purchases...
Are you standing on a stool? You seem a bit taller than normal...
