I predict a misfire.
Not if you lubricate the barrel with some Grecian Formula!
This calls for something really obnoxious. The Deathmobile!
Flounder, from Delta House - the Greeks - throw a huge Frat party (Toga... Toga.. Toga), get drunk and then turn the gun on the crowd promptly killing Europa. That's ok, Bluto will fix it. Start drinking - trust me - I'm in pre-Keynesian.
The Greek People need to turn that revolver back on their pathetic leaders;
Just like the Icelanders did...
I would love to see that...
I fear that your prediction is likely to be realized. My fear is that the fix is in. If they can rig elections in the US with machinery/gameplans developed in Chicago, then what chance do the people of Greece have against these monsters?
Everyone is missing the bigger picture. Now with the a Greek referendum certain, Italian (PIIGs) bonds will go higher, thus the contagion will spread!
Greece referendum won't be on Un-ge-la's mind, when the need to backstop Italy is whispered in the Bundestag.
Greece default is old news. Italy default is what worries Un-ge-la. And the chances have now increased exponentially. ECB will be buying US printing presses to meet demand.
All printing presses are from Germany HEIDELBERGER DRUCK!!! :)))
There will be no Referendum. Banksters/NATO, operating thru a cabel of Greek Generals, will seize "control" of the country.
Explain why anyone would seize the country. Greece has no resouces, no manufacturing, no anything of real value. It's major industry is tourism. It would make no sense whats so ever. The U.S. on the other hand is ripe for the seizing when we default. Problem with that is our private citizens have more guns and amunition than the entire world...
Why seize the country? It must be seized and sentenced to austerity forever as just punishment for the audacity of its citizens for saying "enough!" and, more importantly, as an object lesson to all other citizens to heed their masters' instructions (which come straight from the banks) that disobedience will not be tolerated.
Greece would be the model for the new world order. Perpetual indentured servitude. So much debt you can never pay it off, you live like a pauper and can barely keep up on the interest payments. Holes up and down each arm, being bled as quickly as possible. Peak interest bloodflow. But the beasts always hunger for more, after the Greeks are subdued they'll turn to the next country and force them to prostrate themselves. Thank goodness Iceland is an out-of-the-way island that most people don't pay attention to. That default shit just won't do.
The EU did not have to accept Greece into its monetary union. Oh well, no one is going to seize crap as there isn't crap to seize...thats why they are in the position they are in....they have nothing...
@Cole ""The U.S. on the other hand is ripe for the seizing when we default. Problem with that is our private citizens have more guns and amunition than the entire world..."
Guns, yes.., but ammunition..?? Supplies can easily be cut off and that (barring a lively black market) will be the end of the "seizing".
Plenty of people with thousands of rounds stockpiled, not to mention primers, powder, reloading equipment, etc. Some expecting trouble stockpile silver and gold coins, others have more faith in less flashy metals. Billions of rounds are sold annually in thousand round cases to individuals- the citizenry probably has at least as much ammuntion stashed as the government does.
Depepnds on where you live I guess, but in the south its probably more common then not to have at least a few hundred rounds and many people have a case or two of 5.56 for the AR or 7.62 for the AK- without even counting a couple hundred rounds for high powered scoped hunting rifles.
Gold in Greece
Natural gas in Crete
Greece has onyx, marble, potential for agriculture (this dropped precipitously when it joined the EU). I'm no expert on resources but these were just off the top of my head.
It has tremendous strategic importance.
Turkey for one would love some Greek territory.
I frankly see no reason why anyone would seize the ugly US. What does the US have? I don't want to mention the names of any states so as not to insult people but yuck. Who would want the US?
True dat. You should take a very close look at our decaying, decrepit infrastructure-- our water delivery and sewage systems, our roads, bridges, everything. There's been no maintenance on these things for the last 30 years and they're really becoming unserviceable.
How dare you! We have Disney World.
Germany needs a place to escape the winters in Berlin.
Uh-oh! Panos Beglitis,Greek defence minister, fired the armed forces chiefs of staff, after an unannounced meeting earlier today of the inner cabinet, which takes responsibility for defence decisions. No reason was given, writes the FT’s Kerin Hope in Athens.Panos Beglitis, Greek
or maybe it was just an illussion of roulette, and the weapon was wiped clean. he cost alot of ppl alot of money today.
Nice little rebound this afternoon. SHTF hedging.
Its funny but the only thing we are missing in this chess match is the gold and silver going to the moon....CDS´s are up...bond prices are maxed out...its really time for gold to hit $5,000 and silver $50 IMHO....then the picture has been painted..
This is not the event , gold and silver wil only go to the moon the day/week of the final collapse , they want all the gold for ultimate control and to re value for the new world paper.
The fact that PMs and Oil held in spite of a -300pt day signals to me that serious inflation is knocking on the door.
One wonders at the drama... just default and start over .... Iceland did and nobody died
Iceland is not a nation of tax cheats, socialists and nudists.
Not true! Rumor has it you can still find entire frozen nudist colonies beneath the Vatnajokull Glacier.
The people of Iceland obviously take great pride in their grapefruit-sized balls.
I thought that nudist thing was started by Germans, isn't it true? Also I think that all that despised socialist movements started in Germany, it's bullshit also? At least I cannot call Germans tax cheaters, they are really hard working folks.
Did Germans invent nudism? Possibly, they invented most everything else. Socialism is fine if you can afford it. Greece can't afford it. Germany cannot afford to drop socialism alltogether.
There are Germans working for less than 4 Euros per hour. I don't know how they can afford to live in Germany but they can. Germany has no legalized minimum wage - yet.
Are they Germans working for less than minimum wage or mostly immigrants? Who would want a country with no minimum wage? That's sad.
Four Euros, I would not get out of bed to piss for that.
Don't be so arrogant man! 15 hundreds years ago you could not even face Romans in batlle field, your culture was nothing when Greeks were laying foundations for modern science and art. You were pushed by Slavic tribes and Mongols to what you have now. Maybe, if you have some decency, you will acknowledge that wheel of history is still turning and talking about last 1 or 2 hundred years is nothing, you won't see it, but maybe in todays Germany in 3 hundred years history will see new Ottoman Empire or Islamic Republic in your territories. Is it possible?
Errrr....as point of reality, 15 hundred years ago Germans smashed the degenerate Roman Empire. The Romans never did succeed in taking more then a rather small portion of German territory for any length of time, and after Varus they were afraid to try.
Iceland? LOL Nobody cares about Iceland its not really even a country. Watch the dominos fall, it will be fun when Spain shits the bed
maybe it is just the Greeks thinking that if they are fucked why not make sure the rest of the world goes down with them.
maybe it is just the Greeks thinking that if they are fucked why not make sure the multinational banking interests go down with them.
crashing the money system, wiping out unpayable debts, starting a global jubilee is not fucking the world, its taking pain now to avoid never ending pain for 30 years.
Bailing out Greece is not about saving Greece, austerity paying debts will be extremely painful even with 50 percent haircuts.
Bailing out Greece is about making sure French and German bank investors do not lose all their money on bad loans. It protecting the banks.
So if you are a banker, then your world would end with a Greek default, for the rest of us, it would be a painful storm, but a passing one.
Iceland defaulted by not backing banks and devaluing currency for a while. Zimbabwe defaulted by printing money. Both countries are now doing pretty darn well, because no one has debt anymore. Jubilee, since biblical times, the only solution a debt that cant be paid, isnt paid.
re: moneymutt: "the only solution a debt that cant be paid, isnt paid."
Or pay the debt with US Treasury issued interest free money.
result? No debt, no interest payments, and all the money we need.
Save your wealth in precious metals. Pay off debt with interest free money.
The enemy will be too busy stealing things to shoot.
Just point the gun elsewhere idiot.
The Banks want you to believe that freedom is scary. It's not.
The current system is far scarier when it comes to rascals and false prophets. Make no mistake about it: the government does not care about your well being only the total annihilation of freedom and democracy and they will create hell before giving up that power.
I figure the government would kill us all before letting us go.
Kabuki theater. Diversions. What's really going on?
Think back to Turkey...
