He's a retired Greek......he knows the score.

I'm 55. I'm retired. I'm Greek, I'm sitting on the beach with my iPad........and I'm holding the entire world hostage......kinda cool.

Don't care if it's the ECB, the IMF, the EFSF, the FED, the BIS, the Germans, the Americans...somebody...PAY ME!

Good to hear that the sky is still falling. Run run run Dick and Jane see DIck and Jane run.  

Success these days seems to be vested in who can unfurl the scariest world financial collapse scenario. 


Lets hear a little good news on Zerohedge for a change.

Man in Black: All right. Where is the poison? The battle of wits has begun. It ends when you decide and we both drink, and find out who is right... and who is dead. 
Vizzini: But it's so simple. All I have to do is divine from what I know of you: are you the sort of man who would put the poison into his own goblet or his enemy's? Now, a clever man would put the poison into his own goblet, because he would know that only a great fool would reach for what he was given. I am not a great fool, so I can clearly not choose the wine in front of you. But you must have known I was not a great fool, you would have counted on it, so I can clearly not choose the wine in front of me. 
Man in Black: You've made your decision then? 
Vizzini: Not remotely. Because iocane comes from Australia, as everyone knows, and Australia is entirely peopled with criminals, and criminals are used to having people not trust them, as you are not trusted by me, so I can clearly not choose the wine in front of you. 
Man in Black: Truly, you have a dizzying intellect. 
Vizzini: Wait till I get going! Now, where was I? 
Man in Black: Australia. 
Vizzini: Yes, Australia. And you must have suspected I would have known the powder's origin, so I can clearly not choose the wine in front of me. 
Man in Black: You're just stalling now. 
Vizzini: You'd like to think that, wouldn't you? You've beaten my giant, which means you're exceptionally strong, so you could've put the poison in your own goblet, trusting on your strength to save you, so I can clearly not choose the wine in front of you. But, you've also bested my Spaniard, which means you must have studied, and in studying you must have learned that man is mortal, so you would have put the poison as far from yourself as possible, so I can clearly not choose the wine in front of me. 
Man in Black: You're trying to trick me into giving away something. It won't work. 
Man in Black: Then make your choice. 
Vizzini: I will, and I choose - What in the world can that be? 
Man in Black: [Vizzini gestures up and away from the table. Roberts looks. Vizzini swaps the goblets
Man in Black: What? Where? I don't see anything. 
Vizzini: Well, I- I could have sworn I saw something. No matter. First, let's drink. Me from my glass, and you from yours. 
Man in BlackVizzini: [Vizzini and the Man in Black drink
Man in Black: You guessed wrong. 
Vizzini: You only think I guessed wrong! That's what's so funny! I switched glasses when your back was turned! Ha ha! You fool! You fell victim to one of the classic blunders - The most famous of which is "never get involved in a land war in Asia" - but only slightly less well-known is this: "Never go against a Sicilian when death is on the line"! Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha! Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha! Ha ha ha... 
Vizzini: [Vizzini stops suddenly, his smile frozen on his face and falls to the ground dead
Buttercup: And to think, all that time it was your cup that was poisoned. 
Man in Black: They were both poisoned. I spent the last few years building up an immunity to iocane powder. I BOUGHT GOLD AND SILVER.

"A Greek default will trigger an immediate “magnitude 10” earthquake across Europe.".

Pfffff... what a piece of crap, an Anglo-American anti-Europe piece of crap in the new world war : USSA & their Perfide Albion doggy vs. Europe.

Greece's default will make the Euro stronger (the Eurozone don't need Greece !) and by that time the Dollar and the US banks exposed by their CDS will drop dead.

So bring it on ! Let's kick Amerikkka in the nuts !

Whenever something bad happens, the government comes out with some other "bad news" to change the subject.  Something like so and so is a racist because he said Obama was black.  For the government to come up with really really bad news once Greece collapses, I am thinking it is going to take a full blown flu pandemic.

War with Iran is too easy. Would polarize people too much.

My bet is on a market crash that is blamed on "Cyberterror" and the gubmint steps in and confiscates all wealth "for our own good".

i get the impression 'gotzee' is just another inflammatory thread hijacker who would pimp out his own mom if he thought her booty was in any sort of demand, and disparagingly misnome a 'socialist' anyone who wouldn't do the same while wilfully ignoring the facts staring him in the face contradicting his conditioned myopia.

Facts like those in the following table:

Or inconvenient facts that indicate that the avg. Greek worker works more hours per week and retires at an age above the European average of 61.

GZG is a Kitco regular and staunch right winger of the millitant sort so therefore afraid of the red menace as though Kruschev was still in power. He trusts the government, if Bush is in office, not so much when black "socialist" warmonger, fleece the poor give to the rich Obama is in power. If Obama is in power he expects false flags, but Bush/Cheney were just plain heros...yeah you get the drift.

Great idea Ratpoo... how about you start?  Give us a solid, well researched post of all of the positive economic and financial news you can find.  Once you're done with that, you should still have time to self groom and eat a little cheese before the cat rips you a new one. 

Looking forward to it
