Slovakia; The mouse that roared.

Falcon15's picture

Slovakia - the fart in the windstorm.

"With just of 5 million people, that is about 1,000 euro per person that they are using to support countries that have more benefits than they provide their own citizens."

This should be in bold.

But they can sleep safe knowing that it will all be paid back.  Every cent of it.  With interest.

An average Slovak is worse of than an average Greek! Why should he help?

I'd go with Zdeno Chara over Pyrros Dimas any day.

"It seems like some politicians have decided that getting a general election and a chance to be in charge and have power is worth selling out what they believe in"

Just goes to show that politicians are the same everywhere - complete SCUM who will put their own future ahead of their people's.

They need those magnetic ribbons for their cars which read "I support whatever is popular"

Smithovsky's picture

Or "Will sell own mother and children for votes"

Like the PM-whore said today: "but we want to be a (playing nice) partner!" </wince>

One by one the politicians of each country are selling their soul. Who would have thought none of them has the least concern for their people.

These bastards don't have souls to sell.

Why all the giggles over Slovakia?  Greece isn't much bigger and look at how much sway they have had.  West Virginia?  North Dakota?  

In the end there is just too much debt.  Enough said.

"Sure, but what happened to the integrity of the Euro?"

What happened to the integrity of he Lisbon treaty?

Dick Darlington's picture

There's so much shit on the pages of Lisbon Treaty after all the eurofanatics have wiped their asses on them over and over that noone can't even read it anymore.

Honestly, this is just another example of how the EU-dictatorship works. They have a broken political utopia which they want to preserve no matter what the cost. They want all the powers whether political or economical, concentrated into few unelected elite hands in Brussels. EU/Euro is not for the people, it's for the small business/banking/political elite. Slowly people all over start to wake up for this, now that the easy credit days and housing bubbles are breaking down. The sad thing is that the elite thinks they can make the tax payers pay for every failed banana republic or insolvent megabank but the reality is that they can't. It's their own idiocy that will break up euro and possibly even EU. Only the costs will be astronomicly higher.

'It seems like the Slovak Republic will agree to the current plan.  It seems like some politicians have decided that getting a general election and a chance to be in charge and have power is worth selling out what they believe in.'

There are no beliefs. I'll believe whatever for the right price: The World of Politics.

Is this microphone working?  Chech, Chech. Slav, Slav.

There, fixed it.

Maybe they will throw Slovakia right out of the EU into the Briar patch.

I find it interesting how the Slovak PM said she will continue to reintroduce the EFSF bill until it passes.

"I will keep cramming it down your throats until you give up on voting against it!" 

Dick Darlington's picture

That's what EU-dictatorship calls democracy. Sad, isn't it. Just like with the Irish referendum on Lisbon Treaty. EU just made them vote again until they got the result they wanted. It's a fookin disgrace...

A good spanking is the last and best tool to set a child straight. Seems highly recommended in this case.

disabledvet's picture

You sound practiced. Careful...could be a were-child your spanking. Plus there's a full moon coming.

Slovakia--the red headed step-child of the EU.

I live on a mountain top. I teach my kids to hunt. I am safe.

Teach them about the 'hit save button once' thing.

Don't be so mean maybe he has a stutter.

zorba THE GREEK's picture

I gave rajat an up vote for every post, just because mountain people may not be tech savvy doesn't

take away from the fact that knowing how to hunt is way more important than knowing how to 

operate a computer. I taught my kids how to fish also. And I taught my kids how to barter and haggle. 

But most beneficially, I taught my children too work hard and that the world doesn't owe them anything.

The EFSF is just a plan to chain the entire Eurozone together as 1, so it can be efficiently taken down as 1. Basically the very last step in preparing to implode the Western World at once. All else is irrelevant chatter. 

BandGap's picture

Yes, it must be simultaneous because too much chaos cannot be controlled. The EFSF is the tie that binds.  All for one and all that.

I live in a rural area and know how to hunt, as do my kids.  We will watch with great interest as the world unfolds.

dracos_ghost's picture

In Soviet EU, EFSF passes you.

P the P's picture

Funny how you can vote 'No' as much as you like, but vote 'Yes' just the onvce and you're snared.  This is a very thoughtful piece and I hope that Slovakia votes 'NO' fo as long as it takes.

passing esfs will cost the slovak PM her job....hmmm, i wonder if angela is taking note...

No country wants the blame to be placed on them when this thing melts dwn so the will all vote lockstep together.

Meanwhile, back in the land of the non-msm/one-world-government reality:

Standard & Poor's on Tuesday downgraded a key measure of risk for Spain's banking sector warning that the economic crisis will continue to have a negative impact on Spanish banks .

LOL! Espana has more empty new houses, condos and apartments than the US - a country with SIX times as many people...

No doubt this would be a "good time to buy real estate in Spain", according to the Brussels Politburo, eh? :o)

Politicians there won;t suffer...the pain showers down below while the top politicans go to IMF socials and WB parties.

Few gubberments represent their citizens anymore from what I read. In fact, this should be one of th emain themes of OWS since just about every Dem and Rep I know feels this way. It is a bipartisan belief outside DC and Wall Street.

Nobody For President's picture

The Slovak Republic is living proof that no good deed goes unpunished.

They emerge a new country coming out of a vicious civil/ethnic war, bust their chops and undergo real austerity to get on the road to reasonable fiscal health, and get to join the EZ! 

And how did that work out for them?

Their politicians get 'forced' to hand over dough they barely have to support the party countries who have, uhem, 'overspent'. and continue to overspend.

Too bad the integrity of their politics do not match the integrity of their people who have sacrificed much this last decade.
