Listen Zazz like you've never listened in your life. A three year old with a four function calculator can tell you we're done. Mathematics does not make mistakes. The only mistakes made in the science of mathematics are mistakes made by HUMAN operators. Human operators are making intentional errors to prolong the "Europhoria". If you do not or cannot see or understand this concept of obfuscation/propaganda, there's nothing any of us can do to help. You my blind user are as lost as the Keneysian system we currently employ worldwide that has effectively raped and pillaged the world like a strip mining operation. The worst thing about you, is that you along with others are actually thanking your rapists. So like I said keep watching your football, eating beef jerky, and scratching your balls with the remote. Everything's gonna be just fine, you'll see. Now with that said, it would be in your best interests to refrain from making sensational claims that are clearly "straw-man" type arguments. It comprimises your validity and a source, belittles you as a user, and makes you look like a complete intellectual vacuum in front of millions of other users. Good luck to you and I'm sure someone will pray for you.

THE COLLAPSE WONT HAPPEN

a poem by Anon.


The Collapse Didn't Happen
It never will.

The Germans dominate the continent
The Swedish will go untouched
The Swiss shall continue to launder money
The Spanish youth shall have no jobs
The Greeks shall have no homes
The French shall have no country
The Dutch shall have no laws
The Italians shouldn't complain
The English will pretend they are not in Europe
when convenient.

they all live in the best of all possible worlds.
it's always been this way
according to the history
that we wrote.

You see
We wrote Europe
We wrote the story
And we told it to you as children
It's in your mind
It's in your souls
You sell the story for us,
because you think it's the only thing you are.

Greece will grab those tasty 145 billions .. before they leave the eurozone.

They will default on their debt which will be declared "odious" and have 145 billions to throw at their "new drachma" economy.

From Mohamed El-Erian's latest editorial for latest editorial for Project Syndicate:

Greece need not continue to follow Argentina’s miserable example of ten years ago. Yet, unless Greek and European officials reflect on that example and adapt accordingly, Greece will be driven down the same dangerous dead-end path.

The Euro Is Getting CRUSHED After Reports Of Greek Bailout Delay



The euro is getting crushed right now, after a Bloomberg headline that EU leaders were considering delaying all or part of the bailout.

According to the report, Greece would still be able to avoid default under this new plan.

The euro has plummeted back into the $1.30s, as optimism appears to vanish from the markets. European stocks, though still in the green, have fallen from earlier highs today.

According to Reuters, that delay could last until after a new round of Greek elections expected in April. That report quotes a source as saying, "There is pressure from several countries to hold off [on the bailout] until there is a concrete commitment from Greece, which may not come until after they've held elections."

Under this plan, Greece would still move forward with the private sector debt swap plan it has been discussing for the last few months. Other aspects of the original bailout agreement could also be honored to prevent Greece from suffering a disorderly default.

EU leaders are set to discuss this and other plans on a conference call at 11 AM EST.

Greece needs to follow Icelands example.

Iceland Declares Independence From Rothschild International Banking Cabal.
[link to politicalvelcraft.org]

"By Bill Wilson – Iceland is free. And it will remain so, so long as her people wish to remain autonomous of the foreign domination of her would-be masters — in this case, international bankers.

On April 9, the fiercely independent people of island-nation defeated a referendum that would have bailed out the UK and the Netherlands who had covered the deposits of British and Dutch investors who had lost funds in Icesave bank in 2008.

At the time of the bank’s failure, Iceland refused to cover the losses. But the UK and Netherlands nonetheless have demanded that Iceland repay them for the “loan” as a condition for admission into the European Union.

In response, the Icelandic people have told Europe to go pound sand. The final vote was 103,207 to 69,462, or 58.9 percent to 39.7 percent. “Taxpayers should not be responsible for paying the debts of a private institution,” said Sigriur Andersen, a spokeswoman for the Advice group that opposed the bailout."
