Austerity passed like putrid gas in Athens. Fiat bankers proved beyond a shadow of a doubt that violent riots and mayhem are an integral part of their program of plunder.
How many more bailouts for Deutsche Bank and Societe Generale wrapped up as a gratuitous donation for Greece they plan to stage we still don’t know yet. The prime directive of the banking beast expounds self-preservation by illusory means and profit at any cost through fraud. The stress and strain on people has prompted a clearing out of the drug stores for over and under the counter happy pills and sleeping tablets.
The entire country is in a daze, embarrassed they’re trapped over a barrel with their pants down. Nobody knows where all that money went or even if cash ever arrived in Greece for that matter. But the bad world press and further scolding by Greek media has cornered people like rats, they were witnesses to crime and therefore a party to it for not having put their foot down while there was still time to save a little something.
“After the vote, Greece’s coalition government expelled 43 deputies from its ranks in parliament because they dissented. The Socialists and conservatives expelled 22 and 21 lawmakers, respectively, from their parliamentary groups to voting against he bill. This reduces their majority in the 300-seat parliament from 236 to 193.” The Telegraph
Mainstream media always doles out what they believe will take this trading in human flesh game to the next level but one non-suicidal politician spoke off the record to RMI Athens staff. As he watched patches of the city sizzle from his midtown rooftop, toking on a mega-doobie, the outraged ejectee remarked that austerity feels less like a siege than a ceremonial burnt offering of the old Egyptian kind, Masonic for the un-initiated.
“How did we get so dumbed down? Our people built an empire 3 thousand years ago because they could launch a thousand ships to fight the Trojan War and fetch back our Queen. Through the ages, that took millions of miles of sturdy sailcloth made from the traditional hemp plant. Today it’s illegal and the prowess of Greek shipping depends on the ups and downs of whimsical petroleum titans. Some say it’s the devil’s work but me, I say it’s our old gods of Olympus. They’re still here you know, waiting to pounce on the Barbarians but only after we’ve suffered enough to pay for our silly hubris!”
There are strange forces at work, an alternative economic rescue plan was rejected in closed committee, our man wanted to get that off his chest. Dozens of bi-partisan MPs backed the revival scheme, which proposed regulating and taxing Medical Marijuana plus licensing beach cafes Amsterdam style to pull the economy fully out of the lurch in less than three seasons but the bankers are averse to releasing hostages on payoff.
“Holland is a beautiful but rainy country so there’s no prize for guessing the main tourist attraction, it’s obviously common sense, which we Greeks somehow lost.”
As one might imagine, the beer companies went ballistic when they got wind of the chatter. Various Pharma Lobbyists sent round missives in a modernized version of Reefer Madness and pontificated on the usual deadbeat gateway drug arguments when we all know the CIA runs the heroin business from Afghanistan but they also threatened national pharmaceutical supplies bound for state hospitals to boot.
This whole kerfuffle stems from the modern wonders of TV reception, which brought thousands of signals zig-zagging over the Aegean Sea. Most Greeks are bi-lingual and many people, particularly politicians watch American shows like Discovery Channel’s Weed Wars, the daily adventures of Steve De Angelo and his savvy crew at Oakland California’s Harborside Health, a Cannabis dispensary par excellence.
To make a long story short, Steve operates the non-profit facility as a safe place to buy an immense variety of medicinal cannabis and pulls in around $20 million every year. Oakland’s city council demands over a million in immediate taxes, Big Pharma’s DEA goons prowl around fearful they’ll lose their jobs any minute due to public ire and the IRS attempts to extort as much as they can just because.
The actual problem appears to be that weed in all it’s forms makes people feel good naturally and this deviates from how full-spectrum corporate dominance is supposed to work. People are intentionally isolated in commerce so they’ll have nowhere to turn but to manipulative pill-makers when in need of relief even though their safety record is dismal in the extreme. Who really has the most to lose if Greece does legalize pot?
Marijuana extracts cure numerous ailments and haven’t killed anyone yet so even Greece’s stodgy politicians are now asking why the hell they put up with the asinine prohibition that isolates people and prevents them from helping themselves. The fiat debt pushers have gone too far and they know it’s only a matter of time. The Troika can regulate slave-driving somewhere else because the Greeks don’t want no freaks.
“If bond holders wish to be repaid, they will accept their billions in Kolonnaki Kush! We must get it out of the closet, plant those seeds between the olive trees like in days of old, a zillion hectares of primo bud is begging to be cultivated. It lays groundwork for a revived tourist industry with around $20 million potential in taxable crops per venue multiplied annually into infinity. That’s just one sustainable market with a bright future so who in their right mind would want austerity FFS? The Germans?”
