This is about a no-confidence vote in Parliament. Could change everything!

1. I wish them luck. Their country has been destroyed. They've been on the streets now

for years. Apparently the people don't matter. The push to extract even more out of a people that have so little left, is so incomprehensible. I think there is a lot we do not know about the corruption they are covering up.

2. A list of some 20,000 people, 2,000 of them government workers, has reportedly been revealed

 

of people hiding money out-of-country. Citizens are not pleased to be forced to pay for debt they never approved with this going on.

3. You just made me think of something but I have no idea how to go about it.

How about OWS who has so many incredibly intelligent members, both here and in Europe does some research to find out who is keeping their money out of their respective countries in order to avoid contributing to the welfare of their countries, and then match the list with each country imposing their draconian Austerity policies on ordinary working people.

After compiling that list, and it looks like Greeks have started the ball rolling, someone should do that math. How much revenue is being lost by these greedy people and how does that lost revenue compare to the loans being forced on countries by the IMF and World Bank?

And then how about sending them the bill for some of those loans?

Chavez was able to pay off Venezuela's loans to the IMF and that, rather than make him popular with the West, is one of the main reasons why they hate him. Because they cannot take advantage of the Ven. people anymore, as they are doing in Europe.

5. That would be wonderful. If we could do it in a way to get the IMF out of there.
