Payback...is a biatch.

Angry Youths Attack House Of Greek President Papoulias; Hurl Rocks, Molotov Cocktails

According to Kathimerini, late on Saturday evening, "A group of between 30 and 50 youngsters attacked the house of President Karolos Papoulias."

"The result of the attack was some minor damage to the entrance of the house at Asklipiou Street in central Athens and to the car that Papoulias uses. The hooded youngsters, who arrived by motorbike and on foot just after 8 p.m, hurled a Molotov cocktail, rocks and paint at the house but stopped short of attacking the two guards at the President’s house. Papoulias was inside at the time of the attack. Police is searching for those responsible for the unexpected attack."


The slaves are getting restless! Hopefully this gave him something to think about when he thinks about committing treason and handing over the country to the bankers.

He ought to remember that people are only truly free when they have nothing to lose... and the Greek people are about to become very, very free.

Let's face it, 50 people did more to TPTB in one night than Occupy Wall Street has with millions of people over months.

Its not just him. Most politicians there are afraid to leave their houses.

They should be too.

Dear Vitchilo,

You must know that you're one of the guys I go to when I need something explained, so take a minute and tell me how Greece got into this mess. Is there any truth to the rumour that the government paid out more in benefits than it could afford, and when they decided to cut back on benefits the people went beserk?

With respect,
Charles1952

If the Greek police think this is unexpected then may be there police is just about as good as their economy... What did he expect? I'm surprised he hasn't been attacked already

Think 'tax payer backed' bonds.

Thats what Greece taxpayers are paying for. How many Greeks owned the bonds?

Yes.

But thing is, Greece should have never been allowed into the EU. Why did they were allowed in then? Well Goldman Sachs (yes them again) cooked their books so they could enter the EU.

Greece's politicians, like in all of our western countries, promised way more and gave way more that was possible in the long run... since Greece was already at the end of the rope but Goldman gave them a few more years, but in the EU, well now it's a EU problem.

But what's real in Greece is also real here. Our whole system is a ponzi scheme. Just in the US, the FED is manipulating the bond market so congress can run crazy deficits again and again. Medicare/medicaid are bankrupt. Social security too. Why does it continues right now? Because of what the FED is doing also, the dollar is the reserve currency.

But Greece is no different. They are just at the ``end of their rope``... which all of our societies will be at some point in the future. Italy, Spain and Portugal are almost at theirs. Germany, the US, the UK, Japan and France, even if they look alright now, are on the brink too because of their banks. And when it comes down to it, they are worst off than Greece.

Greece is just further in the process. They are at the end of it. Just as an example, in Quebec, down the line, there will be something like 3-4 people on pensions for every 1 person working. Same thing in Japan. And the politicians still say that people will get their pensions. IT AIN'T POSSIBLE.

What ALL of our countries need to do is : default on the debt. Let the bad banks go under. Reform the whole system. Nationalize the national banks. Arrest and put in jail all the banksters and their political puppets.

Basically do like what ICELAND has done, the only country with balls.

Regardless of who is at fault here, I'm surpised the country hasn't erupted into a full-scale revolution. But who knows, it could be forthcoming.

Now look at what is happening. The Eurozone is losing patience with Greece. The freakin nerve. The politicians are stuck in the middle of a growing angry and belligerent constituency and demands from the remaining Euro leaders and IMF et al.

If no revolt eventuates at least from the Greek populace, there could be a military coup that overthrows the government. I was reading this as a possibility from someone predicting the course of various countries for 2012.
