Just like they did in Greece.

5% on Spanish debt says, "Yes you have a problem, but we understand
that its manageable". If Spanish bonds rise to 7%-10%, it says, " The fire
is getting out of control, start running."
ok, yield on spanish bonds is now over 6%...do we run now?

its funny how the media or the financial gurus never actually say where the bailout money comes from, they just say oh, greece or spain or whatever will "borrow" it from the IMF, but they dont actually say where does the IMF get the money from,lol

we here all know where they get it from, they get it from the FED which wires them the 000000 via a computer screen.

when the majority of sheeple figure this out, than we will have a SHTF, currently people dont care and dont even ask, but when they do, watch out and hope you have lots of pm's.
