Oh, the Greeks Want To Change Their Latest Bailout Plan….AGAIN! – NOT A Surprise and The Germans Should Tell the Greeks To Pound Sand and Either Cut Their Bloated and Lazy Ass Greek Government Workforce In the Land of the Four-Hour Lunch Or ALL The Money Stops Flowing To the Land of Retirement At 50 For Hairdressers! – Enough Already Germany…..Start Printing Deutschemarks

One of things we have learned in the last few years about the country of Greece is that those Bastards are a…

Pompous, Arrogant Bunch of Folks

….and now there is word out of the Land of the Four-Hour Lunch that the Greeks don’t think much of the latest plan by the people that are paying THEIR BILLS….the Germans….and they want yet ANOTHER change to the LATEST bailout program.

Oh….what a surprise….NOT!

Greece seeks at least two-year extension to bailout goals, Bloomberg.com

“Greece will push its creditors to extend fiscal deadlines under the country’s bailout program by at least two years, according to a policy document drawn up by the three parties in the country’s governing coalition.

New Democracy, Pasok and the Democratic Left agree that plans to cut 150,000 public-sector jobs should be scrapped, the document, received by e-mail from the Greek government today, showed. Proposals also include reducing sales tax for cafes, bars, restaurants and the agricultural industry, and increasing the threshold for paying income tax.

The policy document underlines that cuts envisioned for 2013 and 2014 should come from public spending and clamping down on tax evasion and not from pension and wage cuts or from the public investment budget.

The government will also propose that a law cutting the minimum wage by 22 percent be repealed, the coalition partners said in the document. Unemployment benefit should be paid for two years instead of one.”

Well, only Idiots, Overeducated Ivy League-Trained Economists or members of the Democratic Party in America would try to implement taxes during a recession so we do agree that ALL tax increases should be immediately ended by the Eurozone on Greece (Not that the Greeks pay their taxes anyway!)….BUT….those 150,000 public-sector government jobs should have been scrapped ALREADY because as even the Wacko Liberal Nuts at the New York Times which have never met a government program they didn’t love pointed out last October….

Why Does the US Government LIE to the American People? – Well, If They Told the TRUTH There Would Be Another Revolution in America and Most of OUR “Elected Leaders” Would Be In Prison – Case In Point: There Is NOT ONE DIME in the Social Security Trust Fund But the US Government Claims There Is $2.7 Trillion Dollars in the Trust Fund – The Social Security Trust Fund Is Just Filled With I.O.U.’s and OUR “Elected Leaders” KNOW IT and Yet…They LIE About It – What If A Monkey Had Been Hired To Manage the Annual Social Security Surpluses Over the Last 25 Years How Much of REAL Assets Would the Social Security Trust Fund Have In It Today? – Try $7 Plus Trillion Dollars of REAL Assets Kicking Off Hundreds of Billions of Dollars of Dividends EVERY YEAR! – Yes, These Are Some Very Damn Stupid People In Washington DC and They Are LYING To YOU

In this blog post you will learn how the US Government could have hired a monkey 25 years ago to invest the Social Security surpluses that YOU as American Citizens have paid out of YOUR hard-earned money and sent to Washington DC and the monkey investing the Annual Social Security Surplus Money would have turned what is now a $2.7 Trillion Dollar debt owed to the Social Security Trust Fund by the US Government into a $7 Trillion Dollar surplus.

Something the American People cannot quite comprehend since most Americans are trustworthy and honest people is that the US Government LIES to the American People ALL of the time and one of the BIGGEST LIES is that there is even Dollar One in the Social Security Fund which now claims “assets” of $2.7 Trillion Dollars which are really just Special Issue US Treasury Security Bonds that can only be redeemed one way and that is by asking the US Government for that money which the Social Security Administration has begun doing in recent years to the tune of Hundreds of Billions of Dollars annually and with the US Government now running annual $1 Trillion Plus Dollar Deficits the TRUTH is that Social Security is now adding Hundreds of Billions of Dollars to the Debt of the American Republic every year.

This past week the Social Security Trustees testified before House Ways & Means Subcommittee on Social Security which C-Span was nice enough to televise….

…and in the above hearing the Social Security Trustees testified that there is currently….

$2.7 Trillion Dollars in the Social Security Trust Fund

That is nothing but Complete Horseshit.

Freaking Clue to what was going on in the REAL World and the same is TRUE today

…including Uncle Ben Bernanke who even after the real estate market had begun imploding in the Summer of 2006 was still telling anyone that was stupid enough to listen that everything was fine….

The most disturbing thing in Michael Burry’s commencement speech is the story he tells about how after he penned an editorial in the New York Times in April 2010…

I Saw the Crisis Coming. Why Didn’t the Fed?, Michael J. Burry, New York Times

And

And

“We are always getting ready to live but never living.”

And
