Bingo! Replacing Bunga-Bunga with an arch-globalist (European Chairman of David Rockefeller's Trilateral Commission; senior Bilderberg Advisor and 24 times attendee at Bilderberg Conferences; president of a university that includes a 'Model United Nations' for high school students as part of its outreach program; Italian 'Senator For Life'; advisor to Goldman Sachs;....) is going to solve exactly what!?!

FFS, this is a supreme example of why democracy and its bastard spawn, the European Experiment, is a big fail.


PS. How does one become a 'Senator for life' in a 'democracy'? ... it sounds like the kind of job I'd like!!!

Ah the world will surely miss him, there aren't too many of the world's leaders willing or even capable of blaming a complete financial collapse on drug taking traders now are there.

I often think things are pretty fucked up.  Then I wonder if they can actually get any MORE fucked up.  In spite of what my fairly creative self can conjure up, a little voice in the back of my mind keeps telling me that things can always get even more fucked up.  And then, BAM!, just like the little voice said, things get even more fucked up.

If you think things are fucked up now, just give it some time.  It will get worser.  The worsest is still to come.

What's laughable is they think those 5 little bullet points are going to make a dent in the Italian debt problem.

Mr Monti, a well respected economist, is exactly the sort of man that the money markets would like to see take charge at this time of crisis    

Monti is an insider picked by the banking cartel.  His job is ensure the banks are taken care of first, screwing the Italian middle class.  That's why he only needs 5 bullet points.

Exactly, they both have similar resumes.  Looks like the banking cartel means business.  More europeans will get screwed.  Same as it ever was.

Why stay?

They aren't going to fix their deficit and there will be enormous opposition to any attempts.  Italian bond yields are going up and there is nothing to stop them other than 100% German surrender to ECB printing.

There Is No Constituency For Austerity.  Ever.

My Italian sucks.  I am still trying to decide if the graphic above translates "Berlusconi leaves; reaches out to Monti", or "Berlusconi leaves; heads for the hills".

Or has Tyler gone multi-lingual with the double entendres?

Apple has a new app out  for current politicians called 'iResign'.

It is a sequel to a previous app called 'iFuckedUp'


US chamber of commerce has successfully lobbied the congress to ban the app in united states while allowing another app for American workers 'iGotScrewed'

Mr Belusconi said through a spokesperson "After very careful consideration, I have decided to spend more time on my Bunga Bunga activities and enjoy my billions, especially now that I have been able to stack the system in favor of my media empire's virtual monopoly". He added "Who needs more of this shit".

Europe ain't shit without her slaves and old ruins from glory imperialism days for Asian and Arab tourists.


UK holding on with her ownership of Canada, Australia, etc.....


American is practicing a new form of colonialism which imports slaves from Mexico while maintaining manufacturing in China.

Thing is, the masses are so happy bunga bunga is finally out that Monti will have a few months of fucking them over before people start noticing again. Once the focus is shifted to him, just rinse, repeat.

There... democratic government model definition at it's best.
