What happens when the core rots?
Do the nukes come out in France and the UK? Settling this once and for all, and establishing a new pecking order? In the past, these things have always led to war. But most began on a somewhat level field. Seems this time around, the deck is a bit stacked from the get go.
The possibility of an event like that does make all this bickering and political maneuvering seem trivial. But it’s a good thing Germans don’t have guns this time. Because every time a German gets one, he heads to France. Must be the cheese.
One thing positive about a resolution like that might be, poor Ilargi could finally take a break from trying to hold this TAE Wurlutzer together in Ashvin’s absence 😉October 12, 2012 at 2:38 pm #5974p01Participant
In related news, the EU gets the Nobel Literature Prize for the most absurd screenplay ever to be written. Crowds are delirious in the theatre, throwing their hats in the air.
Next up: Nobel Peace Prize. Nothing would surprise me at this point anymore. Oh, wait…October 12, 2012 at 5:34 pm #5976gurusidParticipant
Again John Gall’s Ro/Rs springs to mind – ‘ain’t nothin’ getting through to the central processing unit now…
Also, while the periphery may be getting gangrenous, the centre is still fine and dandy: having recently moved from the north to the south of UK, the contrast could not be greater. Folks round here are just not feeling the pain… yet. But events such as a recent email to all ‘civil servants’ about Gov’t ‘reform’ means those Greek style protests are just around the corner. Gangrenous septicemia is a nasty way to go.

Nothing more would surprise, eh?
The US economy being consumer driven, might be expensive to buck the trend here. Sure explains all the new cars running around town, and the full restaurants. Gas at $4.97 and the heaviest traffic ever. Leaves one with a lot of questions.October 12, 2012 at 10:35 pm #5981Basseterre KitonaParticipant
“People will vote for those who feed their illusions, not those who tear them apart.”
Wow…that is a great quote.October 13, 2012 at 2:07 pm #5989Formerly T-BearParticipant
A troika was a three horse drawn vehicle that provided greater stability on slippery surfaces, one horse slipping would certainly bring down the other if there were only two and not so likely when three are drawing, the economic entity so named hasn’t the hope of creating stability, troika is singularly a poor reference. Otherwise a fit word for this economic group may come from China, the TRIAD, in reference to *Chinese secret societies, some now associated with criminal activities, esp. heroin trading* which may be a better view of the IMF, ECB, and the Euro Commissioners. Just a thought.
