  • What a coincidence (NOT), we have the exact same thing about our ex prime-minister (the new one has only been there for a few months, so it's not eligible for this joke yet...).

  • In Portugal I believe the MAJOR problem isn't others... It's us... There are NO politicians with balls AND practical ideas... Obviously there is pressure from the "big boys", but I can't worry about that that while we rott from the inside... Jobs being given to incompetent people because they're someone's nephew, making us live with less and less money (those of us who work) while maintaing ex-politicians on a life-long income for having done a shitty job for a few months...
    In so many situations the lyrics "Tell you to pray, while the devil's on their shoulder" has came to mind lately... Here I just feel we keep embarrassing ourselves, our spirit, our culture, our heritage.....

    Watch the news please. There are riots all over the country. Strike is a democratic and non-violent mean of protest. A strike can very easily and naturally turns into a riot when a whole nation is indignant with the loss of democracy in the governmental decisions. It's the only way for our politicians and especially the big powers of the world to pay some attention to the economic and social condition of Greece right now.

    But a lot of his posts are just rubbish. Bumps, smilies and quoting someone else without adding anything else make up a lot of his post count yet offer nothing by way of content.

    :wave: Thank you for your support Pandora. I do believe that in difficult times like these, the only ones who are going to survive and progress are the ones that can think positive. However, when you cannot pay the rent, raise up your family and even worse take care of your very own self I don't know how someone can look at the bright side of life. In my point view, all this anger and indignation was inevitable that someday would burst out. Greek people just can't take it anymore. It's too hard. Pensioners can't afford their medicines, the young cannot study in universities or even worse attend high school and so many others. Our government are really selling our beautiful country out. Loss of democracy and poverty is an explosive mixture. People have the power.

    The problem is, pardon my bluntness, the Greek's sucking their government's teet.

    The issue is debt. Government does not create "lasting" jobs. Nor should they. The Greek's need to realize this is a painful wake-up call and that they have been living a lie for decades. Just like the US, a country can't rely on the government for everything. On top of that, when people do rely on the government, politicians live only in the short run. They will spend and spend and spend, with no concerns for tomorrow (or the long run). The sad part is, the long run does occur eventually. We're living in it right now.

    Together people have power yes, the power of hope for a peaceful change that
    may now feel out of reach. I am praying it is not.

    Prayers and positive thoughts for your country.

    Happiness is all we want, is what we deserve and this we can accomplish.

    What do you think the Greek government should do then to get out of this crisis? Leave the Euro zone?
