So what do you think the vote will be on Sunday? "Ja" or "Nein"
Honestly, No freakin' clue. Leaning towards the answer being "Ja", because (shee)people are easily scared. On the other hand, Greeks are notoriously independent.
GREK is a buy either way.
Perhaps temperatures will rise like the numbers of Ukrainian Army deserters (and defectors).
They're not discharging TB cases now from the UA.
5 new cases of TB a day in Kiev:
Ukraine now has alternative supply sources therefore there is no pressure on them to sign a long-term contract now.
What, wood gas like Sweden in WW2? LOL hahahaha snort.
Eastern Europe is 90% dependent on Gas. Central Europe around 50% on gas.
There's no reason for the Russians to give preferential treatment to a hostile Coup Junta.
Blech. NY is NJ without the good sides.
Damn Russians. Look what they do to a poor innocent country like Ukraine. They invade, steal everything they have, and then demand payment.
I thought you were talking about Bechtel.
Yes, but what is the price tag of the Crimea?
Crimea was price tag for the West backing a Coup; no way Putin was going to allow US bases to eventually appear on that "unsinkable aircraft carrier". For the same reason the US would never allow Chinese or Russian bases in Baja California. Just a little "reminder" that Ukraine and Georgia are the red lines beyond which NATO will not expand.
You can probably add Finland as well to that.
EDIT: It was also payback for Kosovo. No UN mandate for a referendum there either. Yugoslavian Breakup is almost exactly the same shit in Ukraine, but in reverse, with NATO supporting the breakaways.
Say Yes and become Germany's bitch again.
The only reason to use an actual fax machine (and not a fax-to-e-mail gateway) to receive faxes in 2009 is to receive some documents w/o leaving a trace. The bitch was trying to hide something.
Probably. Huma can't scan to PDF and email?
Just say "Nein"
Greeks work longer hours than the rest in Europe, so it compares equal.
YUP. #3 hardest working
This guy is crazy. Definitively a Myers-Briggs 'P'. He can't make up his mind, appears indecisive. Shouldn't be leading a country.
Or, he's a politician.
and they are all Nazis, of course.
Not Nazis, just 1%er cunts.
Yep, all of them.
Looks about right, a few thousands out of millions.
The people protesting in favor of "YES" are generally the 1%ers who evaded the most tax, paid the most bribes, and is desperate to keep collecting rents in Euros rather than Drachmas: It's better than having to convert them in Paris when shopping with the Mistress.
Start Two World Wars and Kill 100M people: Get a 2/3rd debt reduction, guaranteed export buys from the USA, massive rebuilding loan with low single digit Interest and allowed to be paid with a weak local currency (ie New Deutschmarks, not Sterling or Gold or USD or Swiss Francs).
Rip off the occasional tourist: lose half your pension.
Germoney should have gotten the Morgenthau Plan.
Oh, I'd love to be all in right now on GREK.
Oh this is so exciting. Uber should be making money at this point, if it isn't, it's a dot bomb. What do they spend the money on? Certainly not hundreds of millions on coding for the app, they don't advertise on TV or buy full page ads in the NYT or Vanity Fair.
Check out the source:
or should I say "Shop Americanstrong.com"
I see several humans working in the back.
Lead paint is perfectly safe, it's only liberal freaks like Clair Patterson who hate the productive American petroleum industry, that want to deny out children's future of lower-cost, happy motoring.
Wake me up when the first fast food franchise has robots deciding when during a busy time to enter the back room and retrieve more cups on their own AI, stopping to mop up a mess they detected with their radar eyes, while making a paper crown for Little Jimmy's birthday.
Until then, this is all "What will rocket scientists do when the Teleporter Beam replaces Chemcially Propelled Space Craft."
The point is that unrestrained capitalism always has the same result: A bunch of people being executed.
Just ask the Indians, Native American or actual South Asian.
People who romanticize the 19th Century think Africa and India were conquered by cookies and bible tracts.
The prevailing explanation goes that the Saudis' decision not to cut production in order to support oil prices was made to defend market share by punishing other producers. If the Saudis are losing market share in China to Russian producers, and if the US is producing enough for its own consumption and has a ban on exportation, how would this not be an incentive for the Saudi's to finally cut production and force up prices?
That's a good question. However, anything over $10/barrel is money for Saudi Arabia. By keeping the oil price way down for a while, they guarantee the collapse of fracking as a competitive source.
Fracking is unbelievably inefficient. Normal Wells cost 1 barrel or less of energy to produce 20+ barrels of oil. Fracking is 1 barrel for 2-4 barrels of fracked oil. Very energy (and water) intensive.
This new King Salmon seems to be less attached the the USA than previous Kings, so he might be fishing for more allies or simply reducing the Saudi's dependence on the US. Getting Russia into OPEC has long been a dream for Saudi Arabia, as it would make OPEC dominance totally complete. Russia has tried to avoid getting entangled with OPEC and wants to keep it's independence. However, Russia and OPEC do communicate on the winds in the oil market.
"North American Fracking" will have Americas and EU markets (with Russia is being pushed out from the latter). Hardly a bad position to be in.
Fracking requires $35-40+ Oil to be profitable, and those are the high performing fields. Other less productive fields require $50-60/barrel oil.
Most Fracking is financed up the wazoo, with big loans to pay off.
Finally, the big fat export projections are all based on LNG exports, of which neither we nor they (Europe) have the minimum half-trillion dollar infrastructure in place.
