Why only $1.60??? It was higher last week on NO real news before it tanked again... Tell me, are your HF friends going to screw the Greeks again?
I mused last night that they should ask Hollande to front them some operating cash. Little did I know France is beggaring Germany too...lol.
What's to know Muppet? That Greece was a lady of easy virtue, waiting on the docks for the fleet to come in and the EU was the fleet that arrived. Or that the EU ignored their own monetary laws from day one and that Greece was looking for an easy payday. Both sides screwed up and no matter what, the EU is doomed but Greece is going to bleed.
"Street?" Be honest your so-called home isn't located on any street in Toronto, or any other city for that matter... Nope, instead it has a lid on top of it and gets tossed around every Tuesday & Friday when the garbage truck comes around.
I'm not worried, comrade Tsipras & Varoufakis are...or why else are they now #$%$ off the Italians and others with talk of bankruptcy in order to drive up Italian bond rates? Let us know after you read the latest SYRIZA talking points.
I know...I know, another disappointment... Obama completely disappoints again. Oh well, maybe he poisoned Merkel's bottled water with a slow acting agent instead. Greek media is reporting it to be the case...so don't lose hope yet my fellow comrades!
What? Are you Greeks actually expecting Obama to rescue your failed state? Not that would be down right funny (pun intended) if it wasn't so pathetic.
Actually it only took 3 days for the Germans to capture ALL of southern Greece--the only part that really mattered ... They entered Athens on the 27 of April and Greece's southern shore on the 30th, thereby encircling and capturing 7,000 British Empire forces and ending the battle with a decisive victory. Oh yeah, their were Brits fighting & dying (thousands of them) for the Greeks as well. Or did you conveniently forget about that as well?
[ According to a Proto Thema report, the two men left frustrated because, allegedly, the Greek officials did not present them with any figures and data while at the same time the new government, they said, “promises everything to everyone.” ]
Because they didn't have any...only usual empty promised, more groveling and a reluctant prayer... Truly sad indeed.
Hell no, Obama wants to sell weapons to the Ukrainians and Merkel doesn't... That's the 'real' reason for the meeting. Greece is but a nuisance at this point... The truth this, both have already come to terms with cutting Greece off as soon as Tsipras got elected. Now it's all about photo opts saying the right words while behind the scenes the ropes are slowly being cut.
Tell me friend, how will this leftist government realize it's ideology without incurring debt? The irony is that leftist ideology is only possible through money printing and deficit spending so blaming "central bankers" is pretty ridiculous. Austerity didn't cause the Greek depression, their collapsing socialist economic structure did. Austerity is the result, not the cause.
They got a helping hand from the troika bailout and they are biting the only hand that’s feeding them. Instead of electing communist rabble-rousers, the Greeks should have been busy building a manufacturing base, and at least making an effort to be productive people. This proves that they are absolutely hopeless and doomed to failure. An ancient, degenerated people with nothing left to offer... Truly sad.
...came to work last and on foot.
W-T-H? Are these guys and the Greek media that inept, is that all they care about? Photo ops?
Can't believe we're relying on amateurs, populist demagogues, never truly employed student organizers, professional undergraduates and hard left-winger communist Wahhabis to save the day. So sad.
