Stunned Greeks React To Initial Capital Controls And The "Decree To Confiscate Reserves", And They Are Not Happy

Tyler Durden's picture Earlier today, following weeks of speculation, Greece finally launched the first shot across the bow of capital controls, when it decreed that due to an "extremely urgent and unforeseen need" (ironically the need was quite foreseen since about 2010, but that is a different story), it would be "obliged" to transfer - as in confiscate - "idle cash reserves" located across the country's local governments (i.e., various cities and municipalities) to the Greek central bank.
Several hours later the decree which was posted in the government gazette has finally percolated among the population, and the response to what even ordinary Greeks realize is now the endgame, is less than exuberant.
Bloomberg reports, that "as Greece struggles to find cash to stay afloat, local authorities say they oppose a government decision to use their reserves for short-term financing."
The government’s decision to seize our reserves not only raises legal and constitutional issues, but also a moral one,” said George Papanikolaou, mayor of Glyfada, the third-largest municipality in the metropolitan region of Attica after Athens and Piraeus.We have a responsibility to serve our citizens,” Papanikolaou said by phone on Monday. Glyfada has about 16 million euros in cash reserves, he said.

A Message To Those On The Fence About Men’s Rights

By So, you’ve heard about men’s rights activism. You are curious to know more. How could such a maligned movement possibly be valid? You see outrageous headlines. They confirm your fears that the movement is full of misogynists. You laugh for a while. We’ve all been there. The activists seem bitter and angry. They say some very inappropriate things.
The question in your mind is this: Why do people get drawn into this movement? I was one of those people drawn in, and I’ve stayed. So I know the answer.
We all know how bad women have it. We’ve read about all the rapes. We’ve read about how women are questioned and disbelieved when reporting rape. We’ve read about the single women struggling to raise children with an absentee father failing to pay his child support. We’ve read about FGM. We’ve read about domestic violence. We’ve heard about the sexualization of women in the media. We are, quite frankly, disgusted with the behavior of men.
Maybe you accept that men can have it hard in some ways. But that doesn’t invalidate feminism, surely? OK so men might have it hard sometimes, but you wouldn’t go as far as saying they need a movement, right? You wouldn’t be that extremist, right?

Calgary Comic Con Sponsors Need To Hear Your Voice

By I’m going to assume you know the basics of what happened to the Honey Badgers at the Calgary Comic Convention just a few days ago. Mundane Matt’s videos are a good primer; if you haven’t watched them, do so now to get an idea of what happened. Some aspects of the situation are still unclear. I freely admit that. That is irrelevant to what I have to say to you.
I have no time for those who seek to limit free speech. Let’s be blunt, right up front: I consider censorship pathetic cowardice. I consider it weak-minded bullying. I consider it the refuge of the inadequate. That’s at best. At worst, it is nothing more and nothing less than totalitarianism, regardless of its origin. It is a road paved with skulls, as history has repeatedly shown.
