Welcome to the new version of European Tribune. It's just a new layout, so everything should work as before - please report bugs here.
Display:
add skin of 2 newts (huge public trust in the safety of their title deeds to their properties, and/or the faith that their mortgage payments were faithfully and accurately recorded), add 3 pickled snake cadavers (fake, untrained workers pretending to be efficient processors and adjudicants regarding the paperwork), 6 whipped dragon eggwhites ( the creaking sound as one of the main pillars of capitalism's freaking reason for being starts splitting and yawing).

it's uri geller time!

stir vigorously with a spoon of 'finally' (who could have predicted?), season with several sprinkles of epic comeuppance, NOT (record bonuses and profits for chief ripoff agents), and stand back and watch a new universe emerge out of the big bang of ensuing chaos, as millions of americans wake to the sound of the bank repossessing the house grandpa bought lock stock and barrel years ago. having little better to do, they will probably decide to mosey on down to their local banks and town meetings to gently remonstrate with local officials and bank managers.

lawyers will line up like taxi drivers at the airport.

a big cleanup crew is anticipated, parental guidance is recommended, some of the scenes may contain graphic material.

'The history of public debt is full of irony. It rarely follows our ideas of order and justice.' Thomas Piketty
