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

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.

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.

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.

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?

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)
