Iceland’s President has my vote. I may even go as far as seeking citizenship in Iceland.
Add President Olafur Grimsson to my favorite list of politicians that includes Vaklav Klaus and Ron Paul.
The EU threatens to isolate Iceland? They should be so lucky the Icelanders. Fitch moved to immediately downgrade Iceland’s credit rating? Really! Since when has Fitch or any of the other two corrupt credit agencies ever moved so swiftly on something that is purportedly so unworthy of their credit rating? These are the same idiots that had AAA ratings on Lehman and Bear Sterns hours before the two imploded. And, by the way, these clowns still carry triple A ratings for countries and banks that are fundamentally, bankrupt by any accounting parameter you wish to apply.
The bankers and the financiers got Iceland into this mess. The bankers and the financiers have to be forced to take their lumps. Well done president Grimsson to stand up for the citizens of Iceland.
I’m off to go get a citizenship application for Icelandic citizenship.
