Certainly. That's why I want the Euro and the EU as it is to end.

and back on topic, france, under socialist rule, will definitely veto any pro-austerity legislation that comes out of brussels and directly impacts sovereign policy-making. for some reason sarkozy (i mean the real sarkozy) is laying low for the time being, but chances are holland will not go down without a hell of a fight. anyone can rile up the greeks, the italians and the spanish in the current political climate, basically merkel has been the odd man out since 08.
I'm not so sure Hollande will put up such a fight... something tells me he'll cooperate.

and then what? there's just no way the euro can survive such a perfect storm. neither merkel and her silent supporters up north nor the southern fringe is gonna step back.[/QUOTE]

This is true. And I suspect it wasn't an unconscious move by Sarkozy.

Tennis has no blood passport system, and does basically no out of competition testing.

The methods and drugs used by Armstrong in 1999 would work in tennis right now, with zero chance of being caught (not slightly surprising to anyone familiar with the topic, btw).
