Samaras Delusions of Grandeur

Chaos was born in Greece

The youth and future of Greece are now the highest number of the unemployed in Europe.  The current estimate for employed youth in Greece is around sixty (60) percent while the Europeans continue to allow Germany to rule.

Mr. Samaras, of New Democracy and the prime minister of the three party government of Greece has, recently stated that Greece is doing well, attempting to give the Greek people a feeling that the future is all warm and fuzzy.

At the same time, the courts have not prosecuted those responsible for their treasonous acts, those that made the famous Laguarde list continue to roam freely, businesses continue to close, taxes are drying up the savings of those who have any while forcing others to take loans from banks that are empowered by the government to force them into an abyss of debt, and that will no doubt result in the loss of their properties.

So, where are the rainbows of happiness with the prospective outlook that Mr. Samaras sees?

The Greek government has managed to pass laws within hours to collect an enormous amount of taxes but if anyone looks at the time that has passed to prosecute and collect money from tax fraud they will see a track record that is in contempt.

At the same time, Mr. Venizelos of Pasok, claims that there are no thoughts of elections at this time (anytime that some party member talks of elections it is like a bright light bulb lighting up as an indicator that something else is going to happen) saying that the government was stable back in October 2012 but now says that it is not effective.

The recent events in Turkey are evidence that the Turkish people are not the deaf, dumb, and mute slaves of their country as many make them out to be.  In fact, they appear to have more guts than the Greeks as their protest has shown this past weekend.

Let’s hope that the Greek people grow a pair soon otherwise as the saying goes, “if you can’t stand up for your rights, then sit down on your stool (excretion for those of you that can’t figure it out).”

The NY Times contradicts itself too when writing about Greece.  Here are two articles that show an amazing improvement in the economy in a matter of one week.
