  1. Sam Beckett says:

    This gives me hope that Greece & Europe will become stable & get back on the road to economic recovery

    • Irene C says:

      As much as I would love to agree with Sam Beckett, because that what I pray for, I believe they’ve just kicked the can down the road once again. One day they will run out of road. I’m afraid that this is just a reprieve.

      For a short moment.

      Dan 2:41-43 And whereas thou sawest the feet and toes, part of potters’ clay, and part of iron, the kingdom shall be divided; but there shall be in it of the strength of the iron, forasmuch as thou sawest the iron mixed with miry clay. (42) And as the toes of the feet were part of iron, and part of clay, so the kingdom shall be partly strong, and partly broken. (43) And whereas thou sawest iron mixed with miry clay, they shall mingle themselves with the seed of men: but they shall not cleave one to another, even as iron is not mixed with clay.

      The Europeen Union will eventually come to a halt, sooner than later. The union can obviously not be sustainably with a few strong economies and many weak economies. That is what God told Daniel.

      Your hope is based on a false premise my dear!!! Just because a political change happened all of a sudden you hope for an economic recovery… So you aren’t convinced yet that all those politicians are just playing their scripts?!?! They are only “pawns in the game”. It won’t be long before Greeks go back to the streets. It’s strange and sad to see that even on this interesting website, there are still people that are literally asleep…

    WHEW…….I’m glad that crisis is over.

    • mtnwolf63 says:

      Plenty more where that came from, Syria, Egypt, Spain, Finland, Cyprus, Italy, etc. That debt won’t go away, the numbers are staggering.

    • Donna says:

      The left partie(s) actually won but because there were a few of them the right which put out only one party got the most single votes. This is a stitch up for the greek people and their suffering will only continue in the hands of the greedy IMF

    • m c says:

      Actually I was being very sarcastic LOL.

      I see news like that and think “its just out there to buy the bankers more time to get their hands on more peoples money”

      I hope it all gets better but my gut tells me that it will get much worse.

  3. The average Greek will have to suffer for the stupidity of banksters. I read somewhere that the whole debt could have been paid off if the hedge fund profits were cancelled….hedge funds which pay pennies on the dollar to rich people who don’t need more money. Now average Greeks will have reduced pensions and benefits. Not that they were not part of the problem, expecting the gov’t to take care of them. Never trust a gov’t or a bank.

    with all the condition they ave to meet to stay in the euro, its going to be worst….but not for the bank, they always ave a emergency exit.. your money

    • SD says:

      Wise comment Yves. Going out of the euro, they would have had initially hard times, but they would have been better off. Now it will really really really be worse. Never mind the fact that it will also perpetuate the system that initially brought them in this mess…

  5. Garth Colin Whelan says:

    The crisis isn’t over. The huge debts are still there, and getting worse. It has probably only delayed the inevitable. This whole mess is orchestrated by certain groups who will want to use this crisis to usher in a one world currency, which will be the last stage before the cashless society is introduced.

  6. krystal says:

    Sure it is over, temporarily.

  7. Tom says:

    God bless the EU, the greatest best hope for mankind and worldwide peace and democracy ever.

    Another country drinks the bail out kool-aid and gets it’s self in line for the comming NWO. Amazing what fear can accomplish. People have got to realize that Austerity is not a bad word. IF YOU CAN”T PAY FOR IT NOW YOU DON’T NEED OR DESERVE IT! The need to fulllfill our greed has morally bankrupted us. Nobody is willing to admit the fact WE HAVE TO TAKE THE HIT, WE CAN’T MEDICATE ANY LONGER. I actually had hoped Greece would say no and start the ball rolling forward to a market cleansing, not a collapse, a cleansing of the corruption. Private income and property are being stolen under the current system and if allowed to continue in it’s current “planned” direction, all that will be left is “THOSE THAT HAD IT, THOSE THAT TOOK IT! I’m tired of being afraid of everything, i’m tired of being molested/undressing to get into a building or a plane, i’m tired of feeling uncomfortable/embarassed when commercials come on while watching tv with my wife or, Heaven forbid, a child, any network anytime of day and most of all, i’m tired of.NEEDING to NEED so much of nothing i really NEED when all i NEED is a HUG!!!!!!!!!! Wow. that was NEEDY! Sooner or later if we don’t face the truth and take responsibility for what we’ve become, nothing will ever be fixed. The Lord gave us free will, what happens on this planet is mans testimony to Him. Don’t be surprised if He feels a cleansing is NEEDED! May the Lord Bless us all, Amen

    • SD says:

      @ONTHEMARK55: Thank you Onthemark55. I needed to read a comment like yours after the previous ones. Those who won’t face the Truth that Greed is the root of all this crisis are the future servants of the NWO.What we can do now is just waiting and shining as much as possible Christ’s light whereever we are/go. Cheers….

    • Sunnie says:

      Loved your post ONTHEMARK55. A big change is needed and no one seems to be willing to start making changes. It will be interesting to see how all this tension in the world releases itself. I completely agree about being embarassed when watching tv. We finally just shut it off two weeks ago. Completely off. The kids have been very good sports about it! Something wonderful even happened. They started playing with each other and paying attention to what was going on around them.

      Love recognizes no barriers. It jumps hurdles, leaps fences, penetrates walls to arrive at it destination full of hope.
      Cleansing the world won’t change anything it just prolongs the struggle.
      There is a great little story about the 5 Chapters of human existence.
      Chapter 1….I was walking down the street and saw a big hole, I fell in it. I struggled and struggled for a long time trying to get out….finally I got out.
      Chapter 2…I was walking down the street and saw a big hole, I fell in it. I struggled and managed to get out.
      Chapter 3…I was walking down the street and saw a big hole, I hesitated and then fell in it. I managed to get out fairly quickly.
      Chapter 4…I was walking down the street and saw a big hole, I stopped, looked in and went around it.
      Chapter 5…I went down a different street.
      I believe our life here on earth is all about learning. Eventually we will get it right.

    I think the problems won’t go away. The victory is only a reprieve, and the crisis will keep coming back. It is only a victory in the polls, and not an economic victory. If the new government will act in the way their previous governments did, I will not be surprised that there will be another episode of a financial and economic crisis. And it’s up to the Greek people. They should be damn sure that they’re willing to take the bitter pill.

  10. George Brenner says:

    And when the silent majority of good people unite and finally figure out that the austerity demanded of them when they did save for their future and their children and grandchildren’s future and they did pay for what they purchased and they did have good credit ratings and they did live within their means and now they are expected to share the burden in an austerity push that will only continue to line the pockets of the corrupt leaders and the bonuses will continue to boggle all morality, then and only then will we truly see correction. I do not know when the polar or magnetic reversal will take place but the moral shift did flip from North to South sometime ago. Can you say help us Jesus!

    In my humble observation, it is like putting a band aid on a person who has has open heart surgery
    to stop the bleeding.
    Good morning Alvin, happy post-fathers day and first cup of coffee with ep today.

    There´s no avoiding this war, it can only be postponed to the advantage of the enemy..

  13. tess says:

    a greek financer yesterday discribed the situation as ” insolvent banks locked in a deadly embrace with insolvent states” his words.. how true they are..
    what a shame so many people have to suffer while the states and the banks choke on each other..

  14. Hercules says:

    What makes me wonder is that 3 Governments changed the last 2 years here in GRC, we’re having a new one now just formatting, all of them entangled in the political life of GRC are promising about the end of the crisis, they’re promising about work development & restoring of our income & diminishing of unemployment which reached monstrous numbers, they’re optimistic & they ask like crazy for our vote to run the Country, but what I know & watch around me, is that my annual income lost more of 15000euro these last 2 years & keeps going down, stores keep closing as we speak, crime/violence has reached not monstrous, but Mega-monstrous dimensions & there’s no hope visible..

  15. Conor Brennan says:

    I work in an investment bank. The word is that Greece has been locked out of the bond market and were faced with two options, extricate themselves from the euro(the neo nazi party and allies) or go back to the tabel to negotiate(pro europe people who have them in trouble in the first place) The problem across europe, the official line our economist are taking is that Europe as a whole has lost its competitveness compared to the developing regions in the world. Developing countries can do what they do except cheaper. This means that no matter what austerity measures are put in place, countries like Greece and Spain, cannot raise their GDP levels enough to reverse the trends. The deal that pro-europe party wish to strike with the rest of europe for additional bond bailouts is a rate of 3%. They lierally want other european states to borrow from the bond markets or the IMF and then become the bondholders for Greece to introduce liquidity into the Greek system. The problem with this is, apart from Germany, nobody has a rate lower than 3% and so they are actually taking the hit on Greeces behalf. This is outrageous, and no country is going to bite. The greeks will be asked to continue with austerity measures, but it cant last, i am surprised there has not been the begginnings of mass migration from the country yet. If their public sector runs out of cash it will have one of three results. One, migration, two starvation, three civil war. Each as bad as each other. Our boys are telling us that Spain needs 65 billion just to get past the next three months as they have bad loan debt(no repayments in three months) of 155 billion. Spain has 24% unemployment and have not got the GDP to cover bond repayments. In three months time a raft of bond repayments from 2008 are due to be repaid. If Spain cant meet these, they will default. There are trillions of CDS’s out there which will then be activated. Its dire. Spain is like an anchor around the throat of Italy as well. If Spain defaults, Italy will also is it is purportedly Italian banks who own the next raft of Bonds due to be paid. That will be enough to send Italy into default, one of the top fifteen economies in the world. Im an Irish man but i work in australia. Should the EU fall apart, the biggest holder of unsubordinated european debt is China. China can be crushed by this whcih would say a massive decline in the demand for goods and services over here, its all connected. Britain has announced they are going to inject 100 billion sterling into the EU to try and kick start the Spanish and Italian economies. Its a bit like a defibrilator to the heart. It may or may not work. You may wonder why they would bother as they are not in the euro. Their are two reasons. One, Europe is 92% of all British demand for services. Britain would grind to a halt in a few weeks. Also, they are afraid to allow the Euro to fall so weak against the Sterling as it would make their exports even more unnattractive.

    Apologies about the length of the above. The funny thing is, the above is nothing compared to fukashima. Money is only used in exchange for goods and services at the end of the day. Its value is intangible. Fukishimais very real.

    That is all
