Ugh. Ugh. Ugh.

I hope my caveat in my last post wasn't what jinxed it.

If this is true, then faster than you could say "boo", and as though we needed any more proof, we are once again being shown that we live in a global dictatorship of finance. Not finance, really, but simple kleptocracy. Woe betide anyone who thinks that the people should ever have an opportunity to say no to being fleeced!

They know it too. They spit on us. The contempt is undisguised.

The bailout will not work. Papandreou might have brought about a momentary respite for his career. But Greece will not take a decade or more of poverty to satisfy the entitlement of the undeserving rich masked as ECB inflation fetishism.

I have a faint hope that this "national unity government" will collapse. Faint.

Austerity, beaches!

That's what our plutocrat-overlords prescribe for all of us. George Carlin was right all along.
