Rajoy To de Guindos: "Spain Is Not Uganda"

Tyler Durden's picture


Yesterday, following the Spanish bailout, we finally concluded that contrary to endless politician lies, Spain is Greece. However, in keeping with the insolvent Eurozone's favorite Hegelian dialectic of definition by exclusion, it appears that Spain's leaders have been forced to aim lower. Literally. As in all the way in Africa. Because according to El Mundo's front page article, the text message that PM Rajoy sent from somewhere deep in Euro2012 to de Guindos, is essentially this: "España no es Uganda." This needs no translation. It also means that the people of Uganda should be happy. Very happy.

Obviously this move should not come as a surprise to anyone. Recall that it was two weeks ago that Nigeria decided to cut its European exposure. Last we checked, it still held on to Ugandan risk.

Sadly, not even The Onion could have come up with a story quite as David Lynchian.

Spain is WORSE than Uganda, because it matters! The bigger they are, the harder they fall!

German, French and Italian banks know that which is why their propagandists infest this blog, and seek to divert attention from the dominos falling...soon to arrive in Rome, Paris and perhaps Berlin.

Rome and Paris first. The only question is which one falls first.

I'm going to say Rome and Paris fall at right about the same time.

Perhaps you are correct, and I find it interesting that an edit to my previous comment was denied by ZH with these words verbatim:


'Access denied


You are not authorized to access this page.'

My edit was simply to say that bond vigilantes will decide this issue, not the pretty pets of politics and their central  gangsta banksta globalist cartel.

Who owns ZH and what is their agenda, I wonder. No matter. We will keep calm and carry on.

The instant that someone replies to your comment, ZH prevents you from editing your own comment  ... "access denied" ... fuktard !

I'll bet your IQ is 145 ...

Access is denied when somebody has replied to your post. 
It's not a conspiracy and it's not all about you, dipshit.

there is a rule here that once someone
comments on your comment no editing
of your original comment is allowed.
it's just the rules. as for your other
questions there is no lead i can offer other
than tyler durden is a fictitious and imaginary
character created by the mind of an "anti-social"
schizophrenic who somehow accomplishes the
impossible, or is it achieves the improbable,
that being ... organized resistance to injustice.
as i say, it was fiction.
i guess changing your comment after the fact would
be akin to wearing a shirt in fight club?
as far as i know there are no other rules that
apply to the host or the guest, you're on your own,
and we are all forewarned regarding each and every
one's volition.
if you turn out to be a guard in the camp remember
me, i helped you out and i like drum rolling tobacco.
i'll be the one with the cane and the shades.

Washington DC is not Kenya either but who gives a damn about any of those political asshats. 


This has got to be one of the funniest threads and articles ever. Spain and Europe is a laughing riot.  I spend most of my time laughing about them.

Really? Most of your time? 

ZH, funded by the House of Saud or Chinese Politburo perhaps, and that's why blonde jokes are 'liked', along with every other thing that demeans the West. 

'Access Denied' when anyone interrupts the flow of propaganda and points out that bond vigilantes will decide, not the pretty pets of politics.

I find that headline.... well... racist. But I guess the Spaniards can't say that "Spain is not Greece", since Spain is Greece.

But you are not the long gone Spanish empire either. Some humility might be appropriate, not arrogance.

Well, Spain isn't Uganda, but it might be Morocco or worse within fifty years. Any recession, depression or collapse is a matter from which a nation can recover, but changing its gene pool is not, as in that case there is no nation left to recover.
