    Germany to Greece: No Austerity, No Bailout | Fox Business

    Those Greek socialist that bankrupted the country and were begging the EU for a bailout, but didn't like the justified terms of their savior. Just like the liberals in America, they believe they are entitled to everything and don't have to work for anything. About time Germany tells them to fuck off! Good job to the last hope in Europe.

    Only the start, consider it a warning shot for Italy, Spain, and France.

    Except the Greeks dont care. Nor should they. They borrowed tons of money from European banks. And now they're going to stiff them. It isn't a first for Greece, which has a long record of bankrupting on debt. And everyone knew it was a matter of time. They would not reform their grossly bloated socialist system.
    The problem with socialism is that eventually you run out of other people's money.

    That's fantastic!

    As much as I would hate it, I almost wish China would say that too us.

    the rub here is, the Greeks don't have a clue as to how to make their economy PRODUCTIVE and the current ( maybe short lived) lefty's who cannot seem to cobble together a coalition, will certainly not do what is necessary.


    2 ( of MANY ) examples- permits for long haul trucking are willed to family members ( or sold) and there are a set number available, think- the NYC taxi license commission and their medallion fiasco...another- apothecaries , or drug stores cannot open within half a mile of each other.....

    Excellent examples.
    People here who want the government to impose tarriffs and the like to "protect high paying jobs" take note. When you do that crap this is the result: protected, bloated unproductive economies dependent on foreigners.
