Re: Donations for Greece here

it's only a donation as if we sent them a loan they wouldn't pay it back

Reminds me of a line from John Dizard (of the FT) about Argentina, he was talking about trading their bonds and then said, parenthetically, "Surely no one invests there?"

I am really sorry that you joke about a situation that the people in my country are not entirely responsible. When you get a salary of 350-900 euros each month having Master Degrees or PhD is not a joke. We pay rent of 370 euros minimum and we try to survive with dignity so we didn't chose to play all these political games and we pay taxes and bills etc. Feeling trapped in your own country is not the best feeling. So please think twice before you start joking when any of you could be in this situation. Thank you.

Love GR, in what sense are the Greek people not responsible for the Greek debts, the fact greece uses the Euro, and the budget deficit and expanding debts of Greece? If you mean you personally, then sure.

Why do you feel trapped when you have free access to the whole European Union which countless millions outside of the EU would give almost anything for ?

Don't worry, Sir - you will have the last laff. Soon Italy, Spain, Portugal will be where you are\were. Then the big fish (UK) who is slowly dying inside, sort of imploding in slow motion will join you and everyone will forget about Greece as they gaze at THE FALLEN EMPIRE that will be in the limelight.

You will have the last laff.

Brit businessman was at a pier in a small coastal Greek village when a small boat with just one fisherman docked. Inside the small boat were several large fish. The Brit complimented the Greek on the quality of his fish and asked how long it took to catch them.

The Greek replied only a little while.

The Brit then asked why didn't he stay out longer and catch more fish?

The Greek said he had enough to support his family's immediate needs.

The Brit then asked the Greek how he spent the rest of his time.

The Greek fisherman said, "I sleep late, fish a little, play with my children, take a nap with my wife, Maria, stroll into the village each evening where I sip wine and play guitar with my friends. I have a full and busy life, Sir."

The Brit scoffed, "I am an Oxford educated gent and could help you. You should spend more time fishing and, with the proceeds, buy a bigger boat. With the proceeds from the bigger boat, you could buy several boats, eventually you
would have a fleet of fishing boats.

Instead of selling your catch to a middleman you would sell directly to the processor, eventually opening your own cannery. You would control the product, processing and distribution.

"You would need to leave this small coastal fishing village and move to Athens, then London and eventually NYC where you will run your expanding enterprise."

The Greek fisherman asked, "But Sir, how long will this all take?"

To which the Brit replied, "15-20 years."

"But what then, Sir?" asked the Greek.

The Brit laughed, and said, "That's the best part! When the time is right, you would announce an IPO and sell your company stock to the public. You'll become very rich, you would make millions!"

"Millions, Sir?" replied the Greek. "Then what?"

The Brit said, "Then you would retire. Move to a small coastal fishing village where you would sleep late, fish a little, play with your kids, take afternoon rests with your wife, stroll to the village in the evenings where you could sip wine and play your guitar with your friends."
