We're past broke.

Agreed, the nipples are too dark.

With so many boobies online, you picked the nastiest pair.

Paging Pladizow!

They just simply REFUSE to let any bit of reality enter anything today...this ends in world war, theyre just delaying it a bit.

And Im sick of this constant world focus on Greece, which is less than any 1 STATES bankruptcy problems in the US!

Indeed. So true. As long as they and the MSM keep telling the country it's the truth then the country seems to be believing them. It works until it doesn't I suppose.

Greece is a scapegoat and when it defaults all problems will be blamed on it. It is relatively small in size, hence not TBTF.

EXACTLY.  How is it possible that markets aren't shitting the bed *right now* after words like that.

The mere potential for a Greek default has been giving markets the jitters -- and now their leadership says "Greece should default BIG" and markets are magically not crapping themselves?

rgentina is no poster boy or girl.  They have looted the populace for 60 years under Peronists. 

Hey Tyler can you stop running this "Travis Smiley Reports" "Too Important to Fail" on PBS about young black men failing in high school.  I don't need a black documentary director trying to give me more Obamesque White guilt.  Cut off welfare so these dropouts are not created in 3-D.

Of course their problem is theyve so interconnected everything, 1 failure anywhere sends it all down like dominoes! They CANT have it both ways! 'Union' everything, but not so much union when theres a problem...either they are a union or theyre not!

Did you mean union or unicorn?

I think they tried to unicorn everything.

Chaining all the lifeboats together in a storm seemed like a good idea, until some began to sink.

They know they can't fix this, otherwise they wouldn't be buying gold.  Everything being done is just stalling to buy more gold.

Dude, your comments are always spot-on and wise (and several other posters / contributors too, like Sheep Dog One and Long John Silver). 

I will now subscribe to your posts, I'm a fan.

I just fell off my chair laughing at your ridiculous gold comment! Good stuff!

No, no, gold is moving back down to <$1000/oz, it's true economic value. Gold is the ultimate bubble of course, bound to unwind quite soon, likely when the sovereign defaults commence.

Safety is not gold...in fact gold is the opposite. Safety is US treasuries, productive land and stable income producing assets.

The only entity with a "manageable debtload" of late is AAPL.

Near the end, but never actually the end, just sick of it. Sure we're bankrupt and maybe there will be a problem tomorrow, but not today my son....not today!

“In this world of pretenders, of deception and deceit, have I
come to find the one man who knows the reality of what he is

Words and music by Buck Ram -- Platters/Freddie Mercury

Oh yes I'm the great pretender (ooh ooh)
Pretending I'm doing well (ooh ooh)
My need is such I pretend too much
I'm lonely but no one can tell

Oh yes I'm the great pretender (ooh ooh)
Adrift in a world of my own (ooh ooh)
I play the game but to my real shame
You've left me to dream all alone

Too real is this feeling of make believe
Too real when I feel what my heart can't conceal

Ooh Ooh yes I'm the great pretender (ooh ooh)
Just laughing and gay like a clown (ooh ooh)
I seem to be what I'm not (you see)
I'm wearing my heart like a crown
Pretending that you're still around

Yeah ooh hoo
Too real when I feel what my heart can't conceal

Oh yes I'm the great pretender
Just laughing and gay like a clown (ooh ooh)
I seem to be what I'm not you see
I'm wearing my heart like a crown
Pretending that you're
Pretending that you're still around

Wait. I thought that debts don't matter. That the cure for debt problems is lots more debt. That in times of dropping private demand for debt it is governments responsibility to take on even greater debt. You know, grow or die.

They keep missing the chance to enable Greece to default in an orderly manner, thereby making a chaotic default the only outcome possible. Ultimately, it's what's gonna happen.

That applies equally well to the entire world system.  It cannot be fixed and is unsustainable.  When TPTB are threatened, they will just change the rules of money and announce it is fixed.  Until then, they are going to kick the can.

Some Greek official should go on TV with Louk and tell the world to fuck off cause they ain't payin!

Say GS fudged their numbers without their knowledge to get into the EU and they can all go to hell.

Then things will get interesting.

Yeah, that would be really and totally believable.

The Greeks fucked themselves when they cheated. GS enabled them to do it.

Enron wasn't able to hide behind Arthur Andersen either.

Greek common people had no knowledge, their political class and banking elite did.

When people are out for blood, logic is out the window.  They will not bother to analyze and it is easy to misdirect.

No Greek will ever admit that about 50% of the population slowly bled the country dry over a period of 30 years (with great help from crooked politicians in bed with bankers of course)

They are already trying to blame the problems on tax evasion in an effort to turn the people against each other.
