Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
It won't last.

Sure it will ... I saw an article and I was just thinking about this. I thought, "The Emperor is doing something nice for the little people ... this is a first ... what's the catch?"  And then I realized,

The U.S. Federal Govt. ONLY exists for the enrichment of the already rich.  After all, those are the people/entities which do all of the lobbying/bribing. Puerto Rico is now ... and God knows for how long in the future ... incapable of servicing ANY debt.  I.E. the rich debt holders are screwed unless ... wait for it ... th U.S. taxpayer pays off the debt holders and it all goes to swell the current U.S. debt.  Who's going to notice or complain about the extra U.S. debt?  Nobody.  Just watch.  

An aside.  Now that I'm officially an "old fuck" I was thinking about some college level seminar courses I'd like to see that might make good (great?) diaries. Any takers?

They tried to assimilate me. They failed.
