    I was expecting a few boring candidate statements of the U.S. Senate - AKA the World's Most Exclusive Club - but, boy, was I wrong. Just take a look at some of these gems.

The current coalition consists of SDKU(28), KDH(15), SaS(22) and Most-Hid(14). The opposition Smer has 62 seats. 76 votes are required. If Smer votes for the bill, it still has a chance to pass.

Hell no. Slovakia is toast for the other euromembers. They'll find a workaround. No crisis, no collapse. BTW: Dexia stock has a quite good day. Not so bad, that is.

I have to agree.  If the last three years of 'Crucial' votes that came with a big 'Will they/won't they' build-up and went having delivered precisely the result TPTB would have wished have taught us anything, it is that all politicians everywhere can be bought/threatened to do as they are told.

I do not believe these guys in Solvakia are any different.  

An amazing. unexpected and totally unforseen change of opinion will occur among the Solvakian parliamentarians sometime before the vote actually takes place and it will pass with probably 95% voting for and a few token votes against - just for show.

Agreed. If Slovakia should fail to approve it tomorrow, I would eat my underpants.

Ah, nevermind. Slovakia will fold to TPTB. It was an interesting visual, though.

Slovakia will vote yes when the pot is sweetened, yes. This is typical parliamentary system positioning, where the tiny parties hold the system hostage - Europe is quite familiar with parliamentary democracies, obviously, where people in the US don't understand the minority party having so much control.

Sidenote: they can "retry" the vote - up til the EU-Summit -- which (coincidence) was just delayed for a week (-> Oct, 23rd).

Clearly then, they're terrorists and deserve to be dealt with as such. Like those horrible Icelandic.

Yeah - that first question ranks alongside 'Have you stopped beating your wife yet?' as an opening gambit.

This is what is known in Pro-EU circles as 'Fair and balanced reporting', and elsewhere as 'Propaganda'.

USD down because EUR is up because Europe banks will be bailed out

back door by the Fed via IMF.

 95%  these market moves are currency moves.

Am I incorrect here?

Yes only because there was a real possibility that their politicians would have been dragged into the street and beaten to death if they had. Slovakia's citizens probably aren't that motivated nor was any other country in the world from what I can see except for maybe Greece, although even that is debatable. Even my beloved kin the Irish rolled over and took it up the pooper without nary a groan. Pathetic. Slovak SaS will cave when their price is met. You'll see.
