    Let's see... Poland, Latvia, Ukraine... north, southeast and west of Lithuania...

    Not good...

    Latvian government collapses...

    World Bank president: Eastern Europe must not fail

    Shortly after Zoellick spoke, one government of Eastern Europe collapsed. Latvia’s center-right prime minister and cabinet resigned Friday, as the country’s currency plunged and following recent weeks of antigovernment protests. The economies of Estonia and Lithuania are closely linked with Latvia, raising concerns of spillover.

    By many accounts, the former Soviet states of Europe now face a crisis as profound as the breakup of the USSR and a financial mess as big as the Asian economic crisis of a decade ago. As The Economist recently noted, ‚ÄúThe Asian countries recovered thanks to export-led growth. Now the whole world is in a mess.‚ÄĚ

    Dangerous times indeed people. The only shining light in all of this is that it's a global problem, and we're the engine that moves that globe from place to place. We'll be the last one to fall, if it comes to that, which means we have an increased ability to print money, although not an infinite one. Where we all end up is something I don't think anyone truly knows. I think the world falling into complete chaos is extremely unlikely, but not unfathomable. Just the same, we could come out of this mess in 2010, and laugh at all the talk of a depression, or the end of times. Who knows. All I know is I need a weapon.

    once again... the collapse of industrial nations and the world's monetary system has nothing to do with the war on terror, the war on drugs, the housing bubble, bailouts, stimulus bills, CRA's or Barney Frank... they are all functions of the root cause...

    the root cause of all the financial woes of the planet is Peak Oil...

    all roads lead to it ... and all roads lead from it...

    The current Russian government is cheering this on, if not actively engaged in exacerbating the problem. Some old hard-liners still pine for their halcyon days of the Soviet empire. Putin and company are using oil and natural gas as weapons on Europe, and since oil is at the heart of all commerce, these diks are using it to their full advantage.

    But, what goes around comes around. Stay tuned. More at 10:00.

    Hey there, one-star bandit... You're not being very grateful to the country that's heating your home...

    Anyhoo, countries all around you are falling apart... Not because Russia is won't keep them afloat, but because it can't.

    Time to come home now.

    Yo, if I want gloom and doom I can just go to CNN's website. Oh, I forgot, you're one of them.

    OK, back to reality now...

    Yes, that's right. You keep right on ignoring all global indicators. Put your faith in that Korean crazy. Everything should be fine. LOL.

    Once again, you turn a relevant thread into a "notice me" platform for your self-absorbed ego, and refuse to discuss any specifics. Just punt, and blame Putin's malevolence, insult the messenger, and flash a few smarmy emotes.

    Gawd, do you ever suck at this.

    Fog this is rev. moony tunes to show what hes got. If Lithuania collapses he should be able to save it,and you because hes the Christ at least he says he is. But if he doesn't don't come back,not after trashing this Country, it no longer wants you.
    Now its time for you to slither off to the bus, and train station rest rooms in search of more victims of circumstance you can take advantage of.

    I would never dream of crashing your turf, so to speak. You've got the toilet culture in your blood, it appears.


    Don't let the bong hit you on the way out!!!! ....... OOOOPS, too late.

    ah, no... that would be you... you seem to have a disturbing pre-occupation with bodily waste function, waste facilities, sex organs, and human excrement... In fact, you can't stop mentioning them...

    Get therapy.

    Why must you make every thread about you?

    Do you have anything else to offer about the collapse of every nation around you? IMF pumping billions just to keep you all solvent? About Peak Oil reality? Or is the breadth of your awareness only on Putin?

    When Fraud brought up bus station rest rooms the other day I thought it was curious. Why would he say i worked at a bus station bathroom cleaning toilets. Its not something one just pulls out of thin air. So the more i thought about it the more sense it made that thats where Fog goes to recruit new members. At a bus or train station your going to find all kinds of people. Not just lagitimate travelers but people on the run or run aways people who are down and out and use the rest rooms because they are homeless etc. So the bus and train station rest rooms very well be where fog works his pitch. Its perfect for recruitment.

    You're the Einstein who said your job was "recession-proof" and you could go take a nap anytime you wanted. What job is more recession-proof than cleaning toilets!!! Don't blame me that I nailed your job. You're the one who gave it away!!!! :D
