Does it still fit on a DVD?
It wasn't merely a 'loan'. They were pushed into it and then out the window. You can leave your boilerplate talking points elsewhere. Here they are a total waste.
There is no debt. The financial industry is hoarding the currency. The currency belongs to Caesar. And we have the right to seize it and put it back into circulation.
All EU citizens should demand a referendum asking if the taxpayers should pay this 'debt' created by derivatives and fraudulent market trading, or tell the bankers to write it off, suck it up, and never again be allowed to put depositor funds at risk on this commodities shell game ever again. And I have no trouble using some form of asset forfeiture against them to recover some of the stolen funds.
They were pushed.
That was addressed in my post...
Why? It's the person who believes the lie, or knows that's it's a lie and uses it for profit that creates the problem. Liars are liars. The profiteers are criminal.
It's mostly the ticks you gotta watch out for.
I really don't care. I just won't accept the *work or starve* ethic. There is just too much prosperity and abundance to tolerate such crap.
Oh bla bla bla! Debts have been zeroed out hundreds of times. This one can be also, and everybody will be better off for it. Or maybe you prefer a military coup to enforce the banks' wage slavery system. You want to pamper the wrong people.
It doesn't scale to real situations.
It certainly would! Nothing would put a faster end to this kind of thievery than to see the perpetrators suffer real consequences and the money returned to the funds they were stolen from. They are running a confidence game to protect a criminally run industry, time to end it.
In a world that throws away more than half of what is produced, a real democratic style socialism is easily affordable. If you wish to keep the property damage to a minimum, you might want to consider it.. If confrontation is more your cup o' tea, then by all means, carry on.
The banks are the only ones getting a free ride. There is no need for any austerity to keep it going.
The failure occurred within the banking structure itself. The irresponsible people were those selling junk portfolios. Iceland took the proper path in this matter, and everybody else should follow suit. I don't fall for that right wing schtick of blaming poor people who actually need help.
Well yeah, I gotta get all your litter off of me somehow.
