As someone who has lived in Greece for years, I am saddened by this inaccurate comic that propagates false impressions. Greeks know how to party, true, but the problem is not partying. The problem started with Europe giving money to corrupted politicians who did not use the money for hospitals and schools. Greeks always saved money in case they were sick ( to bribe a doctor, just to have a bed in a hospital), or to buy a house ( not with bank loans) to secure their kids. Taxing in Greece is the government taxing not on what you make, but what it thinks you should make, and it is perceived as a hand in your pocket, to finance swimming pools and private funds of who ever is in power. So to portray the Greeks as partying and taking money for that, when they work hard, without getting paid, without justice, left without support to governments who acted like medieval fjords, is kinda hitting a nerve with me. I wish you would research a tiny bit more before making political satire.

America's financial strategy seems to be to borrow ludicrous amounts of money, but spend almost all of it building up a military force larger than the next 26 countries combined (25 of which are allied). In short, no one has a stick big enough to convince America to pay off his debts. Then repeat the same pattern year after year...

Fun Fact:
In Louisiana, we have a Greek Orthodox Church, as well as a Greek Festival celebrated near it every year. If you want, Greek people, you can come for it. It's on May 26th-May 28th this year. Just look around for Robert E Lee Blvd, it's somewhere in New Orleans (good luck navigating our confusing roads, I can't help you with that). You'll probably hear loud music and people when you're close.

If there was a SATW version of Louisiana:
Louisiana: "Don't worry Greece. Ya'll(yes, we do say Ya'll) can just come to my Greek festival. Just make sure you bring alcohol."
