If at first you don’t succeed, make it even worse

Well if at first austerity makes most people miserable, blame the same people and give money to the banks…blather…rinse…repeat.  Ta-dah!

A bailout of up to €100bn for Spain‘s ailing banks failed to calm nerves about the future of the euro on Monday amid confusion over the plan’s details…But Spain’s borrowing costs rose on Monday, nudging closer to levels that are considered unsustainable and dragging Italy towards the danger zone. Europe‘s stock markets fell slightly, despite an early bounce, the FTSE 100 in London finishing down 0.05%.

In 1949, I decided to wrestle professionally, starting my career in Texas. In my debut, I defeated Abe Kashey, with former World Heavyweight boxing Champion Jack Dempsey as the referee. In 1950, I captured the NWA Junior Heavyweight title. In 1953, I won the Chicago version of the NWA United States Championship. I became one of the most well-known stars in wrestling during the golden age of television, thanks to my exposure on the Dumont Network, where I wowed audiences with my technical prowess. I was rumored to be one of the highest paid wrestlers during the 1950s, reportedly earning a hundred thousand dollars a year. My specialty was "the Sleeper Hold" and the founding of modern, secular, Turkey.

Oops, sorry, that's the biography of Verne Gagne with a touch of Mustafa Kemal.

I'm just an average moron who in reality is a practicing civil rights and employment attorney in fly-over country .
