    Default which country will bail out first??

    Ian.... I am just wondeirng in your opinion which
    country in Europe is gonna bail out of the European Union first...

    My money is on Germany
    The Euro is probably going to be worthless in a while, and I dont
    think the Germans are stupid enough to prop up Greece, Italy, France,
    Ireland... so they will get out before it totally sinks their economy too

    England is the only country that delayed converting their money to Euros
    which was probably the smartest move possible on their part....

    I am watching Italy and Spain. They are too big to fail and too big to bail.

    My main concern is that if either of their debts become too expensive, they could show the Eagle to the Euro and stop paying their debts and/or leave.

    That would be the end of the single currency.

    But the big question is whether the US would just sit back and watch? Each would require about $1 trillion to bail and we know you have the cash.

    I'm betting American taxpayers would get involved.

    I would hope they do.

    It's America's responsibility.

    Let's hope y'all man enough. You entered World War II a little late so some help sooner would be much appreciated.

    We'll pay you back. Like we did last time.

    But those ships really were a pile of junk.

    We cant pay our teachers, but we'll bail out the Italians where about 20% pay tax. Bully idea.

    And it is a pity we built those Brit ships, keeping the queen from learning German at Treblinka. And the king from using a shovel.....And your folks from eating their pet parakeet and cat.

    Let the Brits eat tea in the next war.

    Where were the great British "seals" asassinating Hitler in 1940? Discussing it over a bit of tea for 5 years?

    I really like getting paid and I'm not all that fond of the Italians

    Talking Ian you are nuts

    just because the usa has had to bail out England and support
    Germany, France, Italy and the rest of the losers over in Europe
    for the past 65 years, does not mean it will or should happen again....

    I think the USA did prop up the French frank back in the 60s...

    The german people are the only ones carrying their own weight.
    ... the rest of Europe is basically a bunch of
    lazy , good for nothing slobs looking for a free ride .....
    especially the French.... with the English bringing up a close second

    I say ...let it all go under and just start over...
    let the Rothchilds choke on the bad debt
    and their failed plans for a new world order...

    their is no reason we can or should have anything to do with this mess

    and who exactly is going to prop the USA up if we were to help all these
    lazy slobs anyway??



    Also, have you noticed that GERMANY had almost no growth over the past
    quarter, this is not a good sign of things to come
