I'm Sad and glad here.. Sad for the people that work hard there and glad I got to see a little GReece before it gets 'ruined' again.
Coming soon to a nation near you. :)
perhaps not. perhaps they are relearning the forgotten lesson
the people lack the discipline to govern themselves
they vote to take that which is not theirs and the result is nasty
we are about tho learn that same lesson. or rather we are relearning that lesson
Give me free pie or I burn down the bakery!
” saw the buildings engulfed in flames and huge plumes of smoke rose in the night sky.
The air over Syntagma Square outside parliament was thick with tear gas as riot police fought running battles with youths who smashed marble balustrades and hurled stones and petrol bombs. “
This sounds like a pretty major escalation in the intensity of Greek ‘demonstrations’..
Not looking good....
The ‘67 riots in Detroit (and other ‘rat cities) certainly got those places on the right trajectory....
Greece's Finance Minister Evangelos Venizelos and the head of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) Christine Lagarde (R) attend a Eurogroup meeting at the European Union council headquarters.
The Greek problems are so sad. However, their present mess is our future mess.
Good Point! I hadn't really thought about it, but there are definitely reasons why there are "ruins" strewn about the world.
What is considered "deep?"
When I read this I have two thoughts:
1. When this reallly goes you will see major banks and hedge funds swarming over the body looking for trillions in payouts for credit default swaps. That is not good.
2. There is more media time spent on that drug addled d-bag that died in Beverly Hills than this. The impact of a defaulting Greece is the first dominoe to fall. Italy will make these riots look like your average Saturday night football hooligan riot.
The Greek chaos is coming here eventually because we are just as broke as they are. We are now in a civil war over debt slavery to the welfare state and you don’t need to have a crystal ball to see a collapse coming.
I wrote a full book on what a modern civil war will look like, it isn’t like CWI. A lot of things change because of the Internet. Also, the regime can’t count on the army, so it is fighting with proxy armies of union brownshirts, OWS anarchsts and illegals. But it is still a civil war. No one will want it or try to start it on the right, it is just baked into the cake because the financial mountains are so huge.

To paraphrase James Brown:
“Coming to America... block by block... burn the nation”
Everybody’s hurting economically so what do they do. They destroy assets. Makes as much sense as anything else done in Greece I suppose!
The best way to help these people is to do nothing.
Let it collapse around them, let them reap the fruits of their socialism.
The survivors might have learned what not to do as they rebuild.
When entitlement zombies come face to face with reality...
