re: Mechanic Question - Snapper Mower - I B Freeman
Those snappers will sometimes create a siphon on their own from the gas tank to engine flooding the cylinder and into the oil pan with gasoline. I used to have on and it did it a dozen times. Always close the gas valve on the fuel line when you are finished....

This is a real opportunity for the EU if they stand their ground. It will hurt the IMF, the European Central Bank for a little while and European Commission for a little while but if it sends a message to the rest of the Union that you have to keep your financial house in order the EU nations will r...

[quote] They almost have to bail them out if they want to keep the EU together. I know this is a disaster in the short term....but wouldn't a weaker EU be somewhat beneficial to the US long term? [/quote] The Greek crisis is not going to break up the EU. It is too small. The EU will b...

More reality. [quote]More again from Germany's Deputy Chancellor Sigmar Gabriel, who has spoken to Tagesspiegel newspaper. He said Tsipras and his government were taking Greece down a path of "bitter abandonment and hopelessness." Tsipras has "torn down the last bridges which Europe and Gre...

I can't believe the naivete of the Greek leftist. [quote]Governing left-wing Syriza party Eurodeputy Dimitris Papadimoulis said that "Greek people are proving they want to remain in Europe" as equal members "and not as a debt colony." [/quote] Meanwhile reality [quote]"I hope people say `...

[quote]Greece had a massively unsustainable system and cooked the books to get into the EU, that said they've cut stuff pretty hard the last 3 years and it's only made things worse. I can't really blame Greek voters to harshly having anyone dictate to them has to be hard to take, but hearing it from...

[quote]Those bankers won't do that again anytime soon[/quote] I suspect most of the holders of Greek debt today bought it at a big discount to par. The IMF will take a big hit I bet. The most immediate problem is no cash and no banks with cash. Imagine there being no cash at your bank, busi...

[quote] One calculation I saw was that in 2011 the uncollected taxes from self-employed professionals totaled 31% of the year budget deficit. Sad when tax evasion is a way of life.[/quote] Thus the demand for a VAT tax by the EU. Harder to evade but history tells us the Greeks will figure out ho...

[quote]This is what they all get for retiring at 53[/quote] I read where one of the demands of the EU was raising the retirement age to 63 or 65. This, along with a VAT tax, is the "great sacrifice" they are being asked to make. I don't think the EU trust Greece to implement whatever agreement...

It's not going to end well in Greece-- - I B Freeman
Polls indicate that the "no" vote today has a slight lead. This country is going to tear apart over a very small margin one way or the other. How people do this to themselves I don't know. How the socialists continue to elect radials in Venezuela for example is beyond me. Tispras seems co...
