Greece, haircuts, and changes in perspective

Taken from

From Behind her (International Monetary Fund chief Christine Lagarde's) sharp exchange with Eurogroup chairman Jean-Claude Juncker lies a rift over whether eurozone governments need to write off some of Greece's debt to them to make it manageable. IMF officials have pressed for such a «haircut» while Germany, the biggest contributor to euro zone bailout funds, has vehemently rejected it as illegal.

Funny how PRIVATE investors were "encouraged" to voluntarily take a haircut (lose more than half their investment), while suggesting that governments do the exact same thing is decried as "illegal"................

Zee Germans mus du everysing by zee buch. Besides I think they are holding out that the Greeks may pay them back with an island or two.

1. Whenever you are talking to a woman realize this person was born insane and you will never be surprised.

2. Never let Doctors cut on you unless its life or death and ALWAYS get a second opinion.

If the Germans want an Island I'd suggest Santorini - beautiful sunsets.
