I kid you not THIS IS NOT A COINCIDENCE
www.huffingtonpost.com...

Mr. Austerity America, Scott Walker, the Koch puppet who destroyed unions and was super Mr. Austerity in Wisconsin, has declared his candidacy today the day they destroyed Greece with austerity II!www.huffingtonpost.com...

Walker was likely commanded to wait for this very moment.


This austerity freak is likely to be the president if Bush or Hillary falters

And he will be like Dracula in office for the American people and will lead the charge for American austerity like you’ve never seen.

This GOP puppet of the Koch brothers is Americas worst nightmare.

Why The Koch Brothers Want Scott Walker To Be President




The billionaire Koch brothers indicated during an event on Monday that they will likely support Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker (R) to be the Republican presidential nominee. According to two New York Times sources who attended the New York State Republican Party fundraiser, David Koch told the crowd that Walker should be the Republican nominee.




Walker has enjoyed the Kochs’ enthusiastic support for much of his political career. Koch Industries was one of the largest contributors to Walker’s first gubernatorial campaign, giving him $43,000, his largest out-of-state contribution. And Walker’s 2014 reelection campaign was one of the top recipients of Koch Industries cash. Tim Phillips, president of Koch-backed Americans for Prosperity, has also heaped praise on Walker. “The difference Scott Walker has made with his policy achievements is as transformative as any governor anywhere in a generation,” Phillips said in an interview.

If there's an American meltdown then, this guy would be the perfect candidate to be marshalling U.S finances?

.....having thought about it, it may be better if this guys in charge to oversee a devaluation rather than an outright collapse?

Austerity is the way forward if you want to control the people it appears. Either that or they want the people to rise up, because when you have nothing, you have nothing to lose.

Some Greeks are calling the bailout conditions a declaration of war by the Germans and have started blaming the German people for their Chancellors stance on Greece.

As for the announcement from Scott Walker, is there such a thing as coincidence in politics?

The banks destroyed them and are continuing to do so, with a lot of help from other E.U countries and the IMF.

Yeah the Greeks have agreed a deal in principle with creditors. More austerity to follow.

Lots more of that lovely austerity to come for all of us when the next financial crash hits. With so much reliance on the financial sector, we'll just keep repeating the same mistakes.

Allowing non union businesses to compete for work= destroyed the unions?

Why should my non union business not be able to bid on jobs?

Ok, I have to admit Im not well studied on the subject but I gather the bills are 180% of what is coming in..the economy has been unsustainable for a great deal of time. What have the Greeks done to fix it other than borrowing money to keep up the unsustainable..maybe Im oversimplifying?

The banks did not destroy Greece. Any time you see this sort of thing in a country , it is a matter of a government continuously spending over their GDP.When they (the governments) go over a specific level , they cant even pay the interest on the loans . Thus they have to borrow just to pay the interest yet continuing to spend more.Austerity is lowering the spending amount to a reasonable level in order to repay that money the government owes. Saving money. Gee, unique concept for governments , huh ?

Yeah, those dirty banks forced those politicians to borrow more than they took in to buy stuff to get votes from people who didn't want to pay for anything.


Don't borrow more than you can afford to pay back--how hard is that?

The banks required a bail out from their Governments almost the whole world over, so yes, those nasty banks encouraged people to borrow more than they could afford and most people didn't care. Let's be honest about it, it was mainly the U.S banks that got the ball rolling, with the rest of the world's banks following suit.

The current bailout is not a loan to the people, it's to the banks with the Government acting as guarantor. The people will not see much of this money, as a very large percentage is owed to foreign banks.

But if it makes you feel better blaming the people, then whatever gets you through the night, it's alright.

You are correct.

Austerity will come to the US whether we like it or not.
Just as it is coming to Greece whether they like it or not.

The US government currently owes $58,000 for every man, woman, and child in America in debt
www.bloomberg.com...
People need to ask themselves, is your family able to pay their fair share?

If the US government took 100% of all the 1%er's money, the government would still be in debt
1%ers have nearly 2 trillion dollars total
The US debt is 18+ trillion dollars
www.zerohedge.com...
www.matchdoctor.com...

Can anyone honestly figure a way not to go into austerity at this point?

And how on earth can Unions get anyone out of this mess, that's a joke.

The people of Greece had little to do with these decisions to borrow intractable amounts. These decisions are made by politicians lining their own pockets. The case is very solid and very easy to make, that lending to insolvent parties is 100% the liability of the lender.

These gross simplifications and false moral narratives are corporatist PR. Pablum for Faux News viewers.
I believe Greece will lead the west into reform of it's broken democratic system and broken money system. It will be painful. It should be a lesson to American dupes and hypocrites --but it won't be.

Not that Soros is any saint when talking about campaign contributions, but you should really look at how much money is spent donating to elections by the Koch brothers versus Soros. They aren't even on the same level.

Nothing Really Compares To The Koch Brothers' Political Empire

You could try learning math. Even if the US cut it's budget to 50% of current revenue (this means across the board budget cuts of 75%) it would require more than 40 years to repay the gross national debt. With unfunded liabilities, it turns surreal.

False moral narratives programmed into your brain by profit machines must be removed. Specifically, financial profiteers are making slaves of us all and the shackles are not even locked! Laughable, really.
