    Another tactic for pulling the debt-stricken country out of crisis could be replacing "the obviously ineffective administrators" there, he added. Because Greek officials have failed at collecting outstanding taxes and selling state-owned assets as planned, Oettinger alleged, experts from other EU nations should be sent in to do their jobs instead. "They could operate without concern for resistance and end the inefficiency," he told Bild.

    Boy does this state attitudes of the Bankers/German elite about the Greeks and those not like the Bankers/German elite.  It's saying that the bankers are the adults, know how to manage things and the Greeks are but sloth and laziness.  The Bankers need a serious lesson and the sooner the better.

      And it's also the reason Greece should default. After default, you get to point the finger at others because your balance sheet looks so rosy!

      There are two kinds of people in this world. The kind who divide the world into two kinds of people, and the kind who don't.

      ...in Greece.

      Which bankster gets to own the remains of the cradle of Western Civilization? The Goldman-Sachs Parthenon? The Citi Oracle of Delphi?

      I guess the bigger question is: Is nothing sacred?

      tax collectors, coming to a shopowner in greece the other day, were chased off by shopowner and customers!

      you can't get blood out of a stone, and all but a few megapowerful families in greece's oligarchy are backs to the wall.

      there is great pressure from other euro states for greece to settle its debts by buying arms from their export stockpiles.

      nice mix, huh? that's really going to go down peachy with turkey and cyprus, let's pour gasoline on that smouldering pile of tinder, shall we?

      much of europe is disaffected, if ATM's stop working i give it three days before we have martial law in the more 'excitable' countries.

      ever wonder what 'short and curlies' can mean?

      the iconisation of material success and the fetishisation of money as a magical medium have put whole populations under a codependent spell, and now those who manage the manna have the way to pull the rug from under reality-as-we-know-it.

      pressure's on.... something's gotta give. international casino banking has over-defied gravity and is a house of cards already shuddering. tsunami watchtowers are blinking warnings, which way to jump?

      but at what price Jubilee? military tax collectors from other countries? what does that remind you of?

      why? just kos..... *just cause*
