"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."

  1. As bad as it seems, this situation reminds me of early 2008, when hanky paulson and gentle ben bernanke stated that "subprime was well contained".

    Meaning I don't think we've seen anything yet in terms of Euro nation fallout effect.

  3. So that would be like signing away your salary and bank accounts to Mr Barclaycard?

  4. And your children's bank accounts - and the rest! Tithed to the government for eternity, what a way to spend your days.
