Next question.

How would you fund this courtcase if you haven't been paid for 6 months?.

Here in the US you can take them in front of a state labor board for back pay and there are organizations that do pro bono work if you need more support.

The violence... I don't like. I have friends who would endorse every word of that though.


Look, the way I see it, like it or not, this is a bubble that has to burst. When it does, there will be no army or war that will stop the 99% of the people. So what you can do is prepare yourself.

You think that "Greece scenario" can't happen in any other country? Wait for a little bit more, people need to loose more, they need to starve more, in these nice, western modern countries.

Just look out for the Balkan region, we already started 2 world wars, wait until we explode all over our politicians, there be plenty of bloody mash for everyone. Smile


I really wish I was so wrong and ears is right. That is my biggest wish in the world. But I guess time will tell. I see you in 10 years ears, then I will ask you the same thing, let us see how the world will shape you...

Smile

Um... I think possibly you're reading more into my post than is actually there Wink

I can understand *why* people would get violent. I can understand how it's even a good thing because it gives the poor some way of having a bit of bargaining leverage. I just don't like it.

Red dot equals rich, blue dot equals working class.

So Muff, what happens to you... when you finally figure out like so many others have... that you are a blue dot?

Hmm well. I feel bad for the Croatians, their situation sounds really bad. and for filox. How did the situation reach that point though, has it just been a trend that has been going on for the last few decades or was there a catalyst that create this situation suddenly.

When you are courting a nice girl an hour seems like a second. When you sit on a red-hot cinder a second seems like an hour. That's relativity.

You cannot successfully determine beforehand which side of the bread to butter.

RE: A bit of ranting...
I think if peacefull advanced aliens came to our planet they would shake there heads sadly as they observe the world revolve around a "token"

Only a teeny weeny percentage of these tokens are actually real (as in physical you can hold in your hand) and the rest are either digitised or held up in assets/items/actual objects.

Everything has a token value..... even life itself.

Almost everybody on this planet wakes up and needs to seek this token to survive..... yet the vast majority (including myself) dont properly understand how this token actually comes into existence..... the workings behind the token.

The human race revolves around a token...... crazy when you think about it Hobo

For no matter how much I use these symbols, to describe symptoms of my existence.
You are your own emphasis.

The whole situation on the whole Balkan region, specially ex Yugoslavia is pretty long, stupid and corrupt. Most part of that region is the 500-year-in-the-past village region, from where most of the people have hurled to the cities in the last 50-100 years. This has brought us a lot of new "educated" and "smart" people...

Then 20 years ago we broke out of the socialism (the breakdown of Yugoslavia) and we adopted "democracy" and PRIVATE ownership. This is the key in Croatia, as well as Serbia and Bosnia. While the PEOPLE were fighting between themselves (war in Croatia and then war in Bosnia) the governments were dividing all this government property (from socialism) to private individuals. Those were their cousins, friends, political teammates... NONE of the companies that were HUGE at the time of government ownership survived the privatization.

We have UNIQUE white lime stone from the island Brac, the one that was used to build the White House and dozens of cathedrals, houses of parliament and similar structures around the world. That company that has a unique resource has just died. It is virtually impossible to achieve that.

Konstruktor, a huge Croatian company that was building shit like this all over Middle East just went bankrupt.

Several big shipyards that are still producing famous Croatian made tankers, one of the highest quality tankers (and other big ships) you can have, is dying for years now and they plan to close some of them down.

Do you know how many of those boards of directors are in jail? Try to guess?

Unfortunately, this is not only localized in my country, it is something that a lot of countries are experiencing. Now, the ex-Yugoslavia countries had war as catalyst and so our situation here is ... strange? The only thing that is keeping us alive is our ability to survive any shitstorm. We survived everything, we will survive this. But this also keeps us from rebelling against the government, at least in some more active way. Until we loose even our survival techniques, we will not change anything. And so we wait...

I saw this just and thought it was fitting for this thread (forgive/look past the ridiculosuly over the top title)
