  • Greek tensions weigh on markets; Varoufakis resigns [View news story]
    The USA has a monetary, fiscal and political union. The EU only has a monetary union -- so the analogy is not relevant.

  • Greece Referendum: No - 61.1%. Yes - 38.9% [View news story]
    I agree. Like... the courage to pretend you are blind to collect a disability check, then throw eggs and yogurt at the mayor who has the audacity to crack down on your fraudulent behavior.

    Courage, Greeks!

    No argument from me on that, I'm not a partisan.

    "I am glad Greeks showed the way"

    Don't collect taxes. Give away unfunded pensions to a huge percentage of the population. Borrow money. Then walk the tab.

    Yeah, real heroic.

    Your link is amusing. I like how they portray the shortfalls as a "betrayal" of govt employees and potential shortfalls in services to taxpayers, as more of the budget gets sucked up funding pensions. No mention of the betrayal of public sector taxpayers as these pension scams were set up in the first place with overly generous benefits not adequately funded by the beneficiaries. Public sector pensions are one of the biggest scams in the history of mankind.

    So you'll be in the front of the line to buy their neodrachma-denominated bonds, right?

    Well, that was then and this is now. If they're going to continue to look for excuses and whisper darkly about foreign conspiracies as the reasons for all their failures, then they really do have no hope until they hit rock bottom and have their come to Orthodox Jesus moment.

    There are just better uses of the IMF money, which is what I care about, as an American taxpayer.

    Yes, the Greeks have had no choice but to not collect taxes or engage in widespread disability fraud like this.

    Looks like the Germans used their helping hand wisely.

    If you haven't noticed, it's 2015, not the 1950's.

    The EU is a fatally flawed experiment. All that's left is the kabuki dance of bubblegum and bandaids. We'll see how long it takes to play out.

    Amazingly, the world keeps lending money to Argentina. Some fool will lend to Greece one day.

  • European stocks waver ahead of Greek vote [View news story]
    "You only have a 60 percent unemployment rate for youth. You’ve got to increase the unemployment rate to 80 percent, double the emigration, in order for us to make the loans to your government that will turn right around and pay us"

    I pretty much stopped reading it there, as it became extremely evident that this is nonsense.

    In the interests of accuracy, it was over 90% of diagnosed blindnesses on that island, not 80% of the whole island's population.

    Even so, the most telling part of the story was the angry demonstrations when the mayor put an end to the fraudulent payments.

    Yeah. It's all the Germans fault.
