Whether the little girl undirectly attacked the woman, whether she just said this because she talked to her mother without realizing who was next to her.

I say, you have an odd definition of "partying". May you live in interesting times, and party all day long, greek style. :-|

@kire: "As it is, poor people are taxed to more and more and the rich pay nothing. But try erasing corruption in a fortnight."

What he said.

"As it happens now, we're kind of punishing young people for the sins of their fathers."

Here, I disagree. It's not about punishment, it's about profit. Which makes it worse. Because, y'know, at least malice involves a kind of human _interest_. Call me romantic.

P.S. A student friend in Sweden told me that Swedes have a thing for waiting in queues. If so, guys, this is the perfect time to visit Greece! Sunny beaches, picturesque islands and queues to last you for hours. Live your myth in Greece! ;-)

And in the end the problem is not, and never has been, public (national) debt.

The global financial system sprung a leak because US banks were making crap housing loans to people that would never be able to pay them back.

They then sliced and diced these loans to make them look like funds, and traded them to other banks, finance companies, local governments and individuals. Often by claiming that the buyers could take out loans to buy as the returns would cover interest and then some.

then when the bad loans went belly up, the banks claimed they had to get economic support from the national government (effectively making the private debt public debt) or the whole globally interconnected finance system would grind to a halt.

So what is happening in Greece is that Greece picked up the bill for their banks and whatsnot, thus becoming indebted to private banks in various other nations (Germany and France included). Those banks risk collapse unless Greece pays, so their governments are leaning on the ECB etc to lean on Greece.

This while the Euro is making Greek exports harder to sell, thus having companies close up shop, thus people go to the government for aid to cover basic expenses.

If anyone was and is partying in all this it is the suits in the City of London and on Wall Street.

@DarkMage7280 Hmmmm.... not exactly. ( I support those things by the way...)

Listen, if you feel (and as a Finn, you actually have the right to since you beat them) that you can handle the Russians on your own, be our guest. But the dirty secret European countries like to hide is that they have been relying on American defense for years.

@atreju Exactly. The reason those very rich people got so much of russia can be traced back to the "shock therapy" Yeltsin introduced to the USSR/Russian economy in the early 1990s. A slow transition like the way the Chinese have managed would have spared Russians a lot of pain.

But the simple question remains. Putin cannot simply hold on to power together. What happens when he either leaves or dies?

@KostaRPK Look into american campaign finance laws and you will understand very quickly why doing this (though dont get me wrong, I wish we could) will NEVER happen.

Hey Europe, guess what?

A big reason we are in debt is because we spend billions every year defending your countries because you don't seem to want to. If you want, we'll leave. Have fun with the Russians yourselves.

Not to mention it isnt like Greece is the only country in Europe with budget problems. Spain and Portugal and Italy aren't doing amazing as well.

@Aurinkolasit Because Some People Find The Little Things That Can Annoy Some People Very Amusing. It's Like You Can Relate A Bit To Them Being Annoyed By It So You Sort Of Enjoy The Feeling Of In A Way Bonding With That Person. Cause The Person You Annoy Also "Gets" It. Even If You Make That Person Hate You For It And The Sense Of Bonding Is One Way... :3


This is why I'm such an annoying person erribody! :D

Why do some people capitalize every word in a sentence? Not only does it look silly, it also takes a bit more time than it would to just write normally.

"I think you, Scandinavian countries, still cannot see the danger in our situation"
Considering none of the Scandinavian countries even have euro as their currency, how would you expect them to react and what exactly would you hope for them to do to improve the situation?

They voted in a referendum and a 61% said NO to European austerity, now the whole European Union is in danger to break up and that will fuck up everything!
I think you, Scandinavian countries, still cannot see the danger in our situation. :'s

I feel bad for the Greeks, to be honest. I think this stuff would be much more manageable if the tax collection wasn't corrupt to the bone. As it is, poor people are taxed to more and more and the rich pay nothing. But try erasing corruption in a fortnight :/ As it happens now, we're kind of punishing young people for the sins of their fathers.
