Satan Soros is manipulating the European markets by his doom-and-gloom statements. He is a pig.

In my opinion, this is the guy to watch right now. I’m sure he only wants Germany to help, so that there is a better chance that all of Europe winds up on faulty ground.

This buttwipe’s real name actually adds up to 666.

Let's take George's shorting seriously and leave our pittance of investment behind.

He is the man. /s

Then he lectures them
Then he “rescues” them

Soros is looking out only for himself. He could give a rat’s ass what happens to others, as long as he gets his money!

I do have to wonder why he hasn't been whacked yet by the intelligence services of one of any number of countries.

Guess they're bought off too.
