Lipstick on PIIGS is making the markets go hog wild.

Let the PIIGS take RESPONSIBILITY for their own actions and let the French Banks fail. Problem solved. Now, can we move on?

That's only fair.  I always thought Portugal was the 51st state.  Oh wait, that was Porto Rico and the food stamp thang.

Been tracking MF for 4 years. This came out of the blue....

I wonder what the chances are for a double top secret bailout from Benocide and co.

I wish these Occupy folks would steps things up a few notches. It would be nice to see some violence. Molotov cocktail projectiles directed at those who anger them. Maybe a few unprovoked attacks of the innocent pedestrian 'observers' who come to gawk at the protesters. Something. I want action.

malikai's picture

You want action? Take it. They are not there to entertain you.

Carlyle Groupie's picture

Oh I do. Do not assume I am actionless. Check this video. I do this every day.

Nice, death by 1,000,000 tiny purple nurples.

I always wanted to run into a big bank building and have everyone flush all the toilets at once. Synchronized watches and everything, where eagles dare style.

Really? everyday...I am not sure I can take that video seriously but I suppose if everyone in this country did it for just one month it might work...until they caught on and had the postal police at your door with some trumped up charges of mail fraud or something like that, but come to think of it when I was younger I used to mail everything., and I mean everything...bricks included.

I saw that earlier. I think that's awesome. I'd like to suggest adding midget porn in the letters if available.

suggesting that both are rescuable if the ECB acts aggressively

I like the word "rescuable". What's its opposite? Unrescuable? Irrescuable? Arescuable? Disrescuable? Non-rescuable?

I am going to apply as a PR manager with ECB, and and want to provide some examples of virtual press releases in my letter of application.

gojam's picture

Opposite of rescuable is 'Doomed'

I think that irascible describes this situation the best

Did anybody else notice a negative tone in this article or is it just me?

Black Forest's picture

It's just you. Everything is fine.

Popo's picture

Did anyone else notice a bizarre inability to communicate?

For example:

Portugal asked Mexico on Saturday to tell fellow G20 members next week that the United States should offer "financial help" to resolve the euro zone sovereign debt crisis.

So...wait.  Portugal asked Mexico to tell the G20 for them?  Is the beurocracy really that fucked up?

"feelers." they "didn't want anyone to find out." shhh. don't worry Portugal..."your secret is safe with us."

Italy is the only PIIGS that is a G-20 member. 

knukles's picture

Negative?  There's nothing fucking negative in the EU. Why would anybody start negative rumors about the EU? 

Problem Is's picture

Anytime a City of London TBTF mouthpiece whore like Ambrose Evans-Pritchard is moving his lips...

He is probably talking his master's book...

City of London Banksters must be positioned to payoff on EU turmoil...

knukles's picture

Portugal asked Mexico to tell the US that Spain and Italy were picking on her saying that they were dumber than Greece and Andorra combined even though nobody's said shit about Andorra for weeks when in fact she'd been in France for the G-willickers meetings all the time and not told Germany, said Britain.
(walks off in a huff)
America starts yelling behind her back that if she wants something to talk to her directly and stop this caddy two faced nattering.
(Portugal breaks down in tears)

I swear this is the plot from the "Barber of Seville"

Don't know it ....

Because There is NO Plan B

Wanker Timmay will be dispatched by Wall Street Teleprompter-Puppet-in-Chief Obama Bin Lyin' to tell the EU their answer is Big Time QE, "Leverage that shit up bitchez," and save the banksters at all costs..

Timmay-'n-TOTUS Plan A...

Is a 100 percent loss on bonds a "credit event"?  Is there any way of knowing?  Cue Twilight zone music.

Europe is melting down and wants to drag the US down with them. We can't, of course, but Geithner will likely try.

While everyone is looking at Portugal, the illusionist are crafting plans to fund collective motives in negative arrears (EU bailout)
