The Death Spiral of Greece continues to spiral downward as more austerity is applied’

 

I thought there is a poster with Einstein saying the definition of insanity is when something doesn’t work the solution is not to keep doing it in the hope the next time would solve it or something like that well I see the Greek Leadership which is still in a psychosis of a trance and taken all of its cues from central command of Rothschilds  technocrats and bankers in it’s endeavers to create a Europe with only one banking source being controlled by one banker under his control.

Well let’s just think of this a moment when you play one of my favorite games monopoly it’s really a cutthroat game that eventually by hook or crook all the property and money flows into the hands of one player at this point in time you dont say well we give up our sovereignty and in slave us and my children NO you realize well it’s just a game and  you

TAKE ALL THE MONEY AWAY from the winner and you put it back in the bank you reallocate resources and you start a new game. Well isn’t that what we have in real life. Why should this one family and relatives control 99 percent of the WORLDS wealth while the 99 percent of the people try to divide the last 1 percent amongst themselves of coarse REVOLUTION is the answer but it should be embraced by the police and sheriffs and politicians as they themselves are still part of the 1 percent.  Even so the will of the people won’t be held in check forever and you can try to scare the hell out of us with more 911’s or even nukes but in the end even with your eugenics you kill us and who’s going to give you the food and clothes and toys of the rich who’s going give you the entertainment you cant pull off a george orwell Society isn’t that braindead and it won’t work and say you even pull that off  SO What you gain the whole world and your souls are as dead as flint. So you greedy bastard reach down in your soul and as your past rothschilds ancestors that gave us great foundations pull your gold out of your coffers and all these people around the world want is a descent living and a descent life and they don’t even care how wealthy you become. But doing nothing and I swear they will tear you piece by piece in the worlds biggest blowback make  just one mistake as greed always does.

Greece isn’t time you try Syriza’s method! Debt moritorium! for god’s sake and throw the bastards out. 1 % token tax on all transactions of financials ban Dirivatives, bankers in jail!  and pay for all your capital and social programs. Greece get real!  or get Revolutioned!

Chaos in Athens: Greece takes austerity protests to new level

Nov 07 2012
 

Greece protestDemonstrators and police clashed in Athens Wednesday, with tens of thousands gathering to protest in front of the Greek parliament. Demonstrators threw Molotov cocktails, while police used water cannons, tear gas and batons to disperse the crowd.

A bus stop and kiosk were set on fire, according to RT correspondent Peter Oliver, who was at the scene. A deluge of water was used to douse the flames.

At least 100,000 protesters are estimated to be gathered in front of the Parliament building.

“Protesters are fighting a running battle… It’s an Athens urban warzone… I can barely see,” Oliver said.

“There are huge flash bangs near Syntagma Square. Protesters are chanting for bread and freedom – they’re accusing Greece of being a dictatorship,” he continued.

Police tried to move demonstrators away from banks near the square.

The clashes came ahead of a Parliament vote on new austerity measures demanded by the EU in exchange for further bailout funds.

Opposition MPs forced a voting delay on the matter Wednesday.

The demonstration was the latest in a string of weeklong nationwide protests that shut down most public transport, schools, banks and government offices.

The new measures would amount to some €13.5 billion in cuts to Greece’s national budget by 2016.

Once the vote takes place, Prime Minister Antonis Samaras is expected to narrowly win the support required to pass the new austerity package. Samaras’ 176-member conservative-liberal coalition needs to gather 151 votes out of 300 in Parliament for passage.

The second day of the nationwide strike, which is expected to last for the rest of the week, has seen most of the country brought to a standstill. Hospitals are working with skeleton crews, while media broadcasts and publications were halted until further notice after journalists joined the strikers.

Brussels demands a new draft of budget cuts in order for Greece to qualify for another loan – totaling more than €31 billion ($39.63 billion) – from the ‘Troika,’ which consists of the European Commission, the European Central Bank and the International Monetary Fund.

The new bailout was put on hold after Greece failed to reach earlier fiscal commitments. The Greek Parliament remains divided over the issue, with the Democratic Left Party, which comprises one third of the governing coalition refusing to back the measures, pledging to vote ‘present’ instead of ‘no.’

The measures stipulate a two-year increase in the Greek retirement age to 67, and several tax hikes. The new package also includes provisions making it easier to fire civil servants, which has provoked the ire of public workers amid a current unemployment rate of over 25 per cent.

The vote represents a crucial test for Samaras’ government, as a ‘yes’ vote would ensure more cash for Athens to pay off its debts later this month, despite the multibillion-euro new debt taken on. A ‘no’ vote could shatter Samaras’ fragile coalition.

More cuts, more protests

Anti-austerity demonstrations in Greece have frequently turned violent, leading to clashes between police and disgruntled youths.

On Tuesday, crowds numbered as high as 35,000 in Athens as Greeks marched to condemn the government for sparing the nation’s wealthy while saddling the poor with austerity.

Earlier, Samaras said that this round of budget cuts would be the last to affect wages and pensions. However, Panagiotis Sotiris, a lecturer at the University of the Aegean, thinks there’s more budgetary pain ahead.

“Every austerity package in the last two and a half years was supposed to be the last one. So it won’t be the last one this time. We are going to see more of this,” Sotiris told RT. “In just two days of discussion, the Parliament is going to pass a huge law. We are very far from democratic procedure. This is a set of measures, which are actually dictated by the Troika.”

The government also needs to clear another hurdle on Sunday: The passage of the 2013 budget, which will require gaining the support of the Democratic Left.
