    Bankers = criminals. Sounds right to me.

    I second that.

    One of my goals in life is to stay in Iceland for a while seduce an Icelandic woman.

    Sound's like Iceland's public are willing to protest to get what they want.....good luck to them

    Whats more important: that the population are all housed, fed and clothed or that bankers have huge personal fortunes?

    I couldn't find this reported anywhere on mainstream media! So I thought maybe it was a conspiracy. But evidently, they didn't report it because it is not quite true, according to this, anyway:

    http://wizbangblog.com/2012/04/14/did-iceland-forgive-the-majority-of-its-citizens-mortgage-debt/

    The IMF is recommending mortgage reduction/restructuring programs. http://www.rte.ie/news/2012/0410/imf-says-targeted-debt-reduction-policies-can-work.html If you don't feel like reading the whole article, here is the gist of it:

    Would love to see mortgages restructured here as well and I think it will likely happen.

    Good luck to all with the Icelandic women, however. Maybe one of them can tell us what is actually happening in Iceland! That would be cool. (Hahahaha get it, COOL? ICEland?) yeah, never mind gotta run.

    Is this thread meant to entice us to move to Iceland with its abundance of progressive, politically inclined women?

    "I’d lay my ear to
    the cracking of the ice
    in the hope of hearing it
    retreat
    if I didn’t know
    I’d be frozen fast

    The ice lets no one go

    My country
    a spread deathbed
    my initials stitched
    on the icy linen

    from Patriotic Poem

    To stand apart from the wealth of poetic talent currently working in Iceland requires a unique eloquence of expression. The diminutive north sea nation is not short on artists, musicians and poets. Bearing a unique cultural tradition that emanates from the poetic, that is the written and spoken word of the sagas and the eddas, Iceland is a novum for ethereal, intuitive, organic poetry. Gerður Kristný is as fine an example as is to be found. Her work is cautious and collected, an image driven poetess, hollowing out poems into delicate structures that offer like the climate and geography of Iceland itself, a sense of humility, of beloved uncertainty and an appreciation of that which immediately surrounds. Her fourth collection is soon to appear in the upcoming year."
