He's got a new gig at Goldman.
If he had really planned to retire, he wouldn't have pushed the cuts in retirement payments through parliament...
Is it his 58th birthday soon?
Greece's 1YR @ 128%!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I'm going to be rich!!!!!!!
maybe he thinks that there's been too many G-pap-smear campaigns against him?
Well the Greek bond market has been a very dark place, and every dark place needs a good Pap smear now and then.
Nice. I wonder how the European markets will react to this rumor.
One replacement they are considering is former cabinet minister George Spotsandreau who is now somewhere on vacation, so if he returns to Greece as the new leader we'd go from the G-Pap smears to the new G-Spot, something widely seen as preferable. Due to his vacation, G-Spot may be hard to find, but most Greeks feel the search is worthwhile.
good riddance of useless Oligarch.
Only to be replaced by another.
Obama next ?
Obama would love to resign, but then Michelle wouldn't be able to spend tax payers monie anymore, and we all know who wears the pants in that relationship.
He is taking the post as the new CEO of AMR....
Sure, but if hes walking with a pension fuck that.
Greece is falling apart and they need confidence, so someone should have been brought in, held up as his replacement and discussed.
He sounds like he's just jumping ship and leaving the country.
See, pigs do fly.
'Retiring' yea sure, more like finalizing plans to head to the underground bunker.
They ALL should retire......
Lapdog of the lamprey international banking system.
Looking at that THC short from February, DOWN -11% today and -45% since my first post, many others may soon contemplate retirement.
Heh, when I hear THC I only think of one thing. And it's not what you're talking about.
I meant down 13% today...and still mostly the same excellent management team.
They must not be managing the rise in silver costs very well.
That one slipped over a few heads.....not mine!
Apparently it's quiet the cure for cancer this THC. And apparently a rather fun recreational substance. Or so I've been told!
That translation may be off about the 'throwing of rocks'...I think the proper translation to Greek is 'molotov cocktails'.
i think g-pap meant resign so he could join them on the barricades, throwing rocks!
Which drop of the market did this rumor cause, or which blip up did this rumor cause?
I don't know but the market has gone wacky. It is so amazing that 50 point two minute moves in the Dow now look small. Remember when the market would go up by 10 points in a day and that was considered a big move.
The amn S&P just won't break 1100. You could saw through a Sequoia in ten seconds flat with a sawblade shaped like the chart today.
Jerry Springer might sign G-pap and DSK up for a show...should be fun if they throw in a German and a 'True Finn' same-time::))
'throwing the rocks' should be translated like "capitulation" / "abandon the whole sh1t"
Maybe they meant getting his rocks off.
Better translation would be "throwing in the towel".
DSK tagteam ?
They would be a powerhouse against their "old team"...the IMF and World Bank.
They would be... unflappable...
Maybe he has all his money in Bank of America and because he only has an online account and he has no annual leave left to take then it's early retirement (excuse the pun when refering to a Greek citizen and early retirement) so he can nip across to NY and attend a branch in person and try and get some out before it goes under.
Run little rabbit, run......
He is returning home to his native Minnesota, to help Gov Mark Dayton form a perfect socialist state.
I'll warm up the tar..
S&P breaking 1100 into the tape.
lol just read the article and they really just wrote throw the rocks in german die Brocken hinzuschmeissen which actually nobody would say in germany...fucking propaganda press
"Brocken (oder Bettel) hinschmeissen" is quite a common saying in southern germany
1099.17 it almost made it back up to 1100 before the close. The Dow lost over 100 points in ten minutes after gaining 60 points ten minutes before. Some algo made someone a lot of money or lost them a lot of money.
You ever notice when markets are up its usually due to 'financials leading the way'...?
So why is it today when most financials are down around -7% avg, the markets are only down 1.5%?
<sarc> yes I know the answer is because its all fake, and pointless to even pay much attention to the clownshow. Its all goin down, survival of the fitness, boys!

Papandreou Planning Retirement,
...aaaaand deservedly so, according to the Hellenic bureau of labor statistics he was eligible 30 years ago.
aren't you supposed to play with your rocks, before throwing them?
Perhaps `throwing the rocks` means to jump off a cliff, i.e. throw yourself on the rocks.
I like the Japanese version better; Cut your belly and die.
HOLY MFER!!!!! Netflix 300 down to almost 100 !!!! WTF!? cant believe i missed trading that clusterfuck
All the mighty 100 P/E bubbles are about to pop, its the raping of the 401K/pension bathrobe brigades. Those people will soon be rioting over their -60% statements in the mail....and OH BOY just wait till the 'Uber Clowngress' cuts a few hundred $billion from welfare, food stamps, and unemployment this month...it will be epic scenes all over this country I hope youre all prepared for it best as possible.
Where is the President's Working Group on Financial Markets to support the fiat ponzi? It is obvious they leased massive gold at $1900; they have the cash. Where is Bernanke the Benevolent?
I dont know who it is putting up all this money for the banking cabal to immediately take it from them time after time.
Is the BofA website fully functional yet? I see their home page is up. Oops, nevermind. It's down again.
