The Greeks been sucking on the welfare pig so long they don't know what to do with anything else. They're not protesting for being endebted forever or selling their children off, they're pissed because they won't be able to get as fat off the backs of people who actually produce something (germany etc.)

Lianis had declared his intention to leave politics in order to be able to safely "walk the streets."

One could also read that as "Anyone who stays after I leave is a crook and not to be trusted."

A curious thing happens when politics gets a really bad reputation; nobody bothers. And once nobody bothers with it, a lot of other inconvenient babies fly out that window along with the bath water. I've always figured that if I were a fucker and I wanted to take over a country, the first thing I would do is run all the good people out of politics, and out of public service. And demonize those trades. And undermine all faith in them. And leave nothing but clinical morons and blatant criminals to run things.

Thus leaving people with nothing else to work with to get things done except the oligarch class.

I'm a fucker but I'm not that kind of fucker. But I can promise you that someone out there will be.

Keep in mind their motives. Why do they want to you think and act the way you are? What's in it for them? Is everything really as bad as they say? What happens if we do give in, and give up? What then? Where will these guys be then?

And if you don't like the answers ... don't let them pull your strings.

This has been a public service announcement by People Who Know How to Think for Themselves.

Greece has 300B EUR of liquid assets (land mostly) and an estimated 300B EUR of tappable oil reserves. Soooooo .... which countries have a history of messing with the internal politics of petrostates ....

Redemption is best attained when one can empatize with their fellow countrymen, and resist all temptations to exploit them for meaningless political/material gain.

May more and more people find strength in their common bond in humanity versus the imposition of evil institutions that seek only to exploit and strip individuals of rights and opportunity.

Luvin' it.

Can't see Obamananke ever having the humility to say and do what this Greek guy said/did.

True: Tyranny is when the people fear the government, Freedom is when the politicians (and bankers) fear the people.

If the Greeks set themselves free, there will be global anti-bank momo. Firewall, bitchez!

Elsewhere both the Communist Party of Greece (KKE) and Radical Left Coalition (Syriza) announced that they will refrain from all Parliamentary procedures that concern the Mid-Term Fiscal Strategy

So let me get this right: the Communists are trying to stop the Socialists from selling out to the Banking Elite?  Reality is too absurd for fiction.

When even the Irish journalists and politicians describe Greece as "the most dysfunctional state in Europe", it is time to give it a rest. Even the ECB doesn't want to bother anymore, and I don't think that's a ploy to hike up the rates. 


I know many here see Greece as the victim of a great injustice with the banker mafia sharks swimming offshore to put it in the chains of debt, but come on! The crux of this debacle is that the Greeks want the handout but don't want to work as long as their Northern neighbours, and they have wasted billions of Euros in subsidies from the EU which were given to improve their country, but instead went to civil service expansions and perks. I wish they would just default and see what it's like to live without the EU umbrella. 


Irish Times: "This, in many ways, is unsurprising. The chronic dysfunctionality of the Greek state is long established. Since independence almost two centuries ago, Greece has experienced civil war, uprisings, mass displacement of people, dictatorships and terrorism."

a story about a greek, a irishman and a jew and the pearly gates.

so, a jew, an irishman and a greek die in a car crash and end up at the pearly gates, and st peter say "sorry guys, we're all full up here today - I'll let you three live again, but if you sin ...poof, you will disappear into thin air and end up right back here again.

so the three are walking down the street and the irishman sees a beer delivery truck and this case of beer sitting alone on the street and decides to take a bottle, open it and drink it - poof, he disappears into thin air! wow, say the jew and the greek.

so now the jew and the greek are walking down the street and the jew sees this guy drop his wallet and sees a lot of green bills sticking out of it. So the jew bends over to pick it up and POOF!!! ..the jew AND the greek disappear into thin air!

ok. say they do that. then what do they intend on doing? going back in time to a place where greece was much more farming oriented?  because it is a easy thing for them to say, well we want to kick out the banksters. but if they did this what would the real costs be?  are they willing to pay this price?  i am not sure. how long have they been a socialist country?  how long has it been since greeks were self reliant?  also , iceland did not get off of the hook yet. sure there are some problems, but i assure you, the people that are in control, feel, that iceland has a debt, that must be paid. you see what is happening to libya. this is what happens when someone does not do what they are told.?  we see what is happening now to iraq and afghanistan. we see what happened to chechnya. liberty for the captives is a precious thing and the price to achieve it is extremely high. just merely tussling with the cops and throwing little harmless petrol bombs and m80's is not going to cut it. the way i figure it, the ruling class , already has this all figured out and they are just playing out their string on this. to do what you say they want to do, will require much blood. much blood. mark my words.
