Rollin' Like Sisyphus

Ode To A Grecian Burn

Posted in The Fail Pail by Huckleberry on July 8, 2015

The EU just doesn’t want to let them go, but the most noteworthy development involves the typical attempt by Our Simple Affirmative Action President to intervene:

Washington has been forced to watch on the sidelines as Europe has lurched from fresh crisis to crisis over Greece. Last night, president Obama made his first personal intervention in many a month, phoning both Angela Merkel and PM Tsipras to call for a solution. It didn’t seem to do the trick as the summit ended without agreement.

You just can’t buy that particular blend of overconfident ineptitude without a prescription.
Meanwhile, the EU wants to make an example of Greece, which should end well for everyone involved:

George Saravelos at Deutsche Bank thinks Athens will have to bow down and accept much harsher bail-out conditions than those they have previously had rejected by creditors.

That’ll do the trick.

    Yup, if you can’t pay $x, let’s see how much you like paying twice that, hahaha! *gleefully rubs hands together*

    Let them eat each other. I read somewhere, recently, that at any given time, men and women deserve each other. So it goes with the sexes, so it seems to go with financiers and borrowers. A pox upon both of their economically herpes’ed houses.

    It’s like a string hanging out of a sweater. You have to pull it. The question is just how much comes unraveled before we get to the other end.
