So there really are no advantages to using a bank to store your money, only risk? Why does anyone continue to fall for this trick? What a scam. I think i'll go ask for all my money on Monday. Id like to keep it.
As I said , it can happen here. And has in a way. Will it happen in the US? It will take an awful lot of financial collapse here to begin even thinking about it.
The issue with Greece was that their GDP was far less than the money owed. The government was busy spending money that they didnt have. Then borrowing money to pay just the interest that was owed. And they were cut in their credit rating down to almost bottom level. This means the more they were lowered , the more interest they had to pay on each loan. A sort of vicious cycle.

Lol...can't imagine that kind of crap going on here in the US. No wonder why they want to disarm the population. Hellfire would unleash, and blood will soak the steps of the banks.

This is no disrespect to you, but I HONESTLY think you must be a disinfo agent or are quite easily-influenced, thus the PTB have been so successful at manipulating your understanding of the situation.

Actually we are all barking up the wrong tree the crisis is not that the Greeks cant pay their debt its actually that the Germans cant collect their debt and depending on how their risk is structured that could be a BIG problem.

Buying Bitcoins is like playing the lottery.......Anyone with financial sense will only do this for fun or low risk small investment. PTB control the currencies and that means they could pass laws banning bitcoins overnight if they wanted.

Everybody wants to talk about how Greece handles its problems but no one wants to help. It's problems are to the tune of only a few billion dollars. We could set up a fund-me account and wipe it out, but its not going to happen.

There is a crown fund for Greece thing going on. The Target is 1.3 Billion Euro. so far they are at 1.3 Million...even if they reached 1.3 Billion what they going to do when the next installment's due.?
It's a game of bluff that's being played from both sides. Not only Europe but the world has much to lose if Greece is allowed to become unstable.. Someone will blink and by the looks of it it wont be the Greeks.
