    Well all good European politicians gotta visit the White House to get "approval" from the Americans :p

    Plus I read somewhere a few days ago that Obama said "The European Union must help Greece".

    And...still...the rich keep getting richer...............

    do not even go there...And i think that by marbles he's talking about the shiny(?) round glassy things that some people, for some reason, think it's a fun game to play. I'd rather use heads for that. But then again...that's just me.

    weeellll...


    Greece COULD, of course, sell the Parthenon frieses to the UK for a couple of billion euros. It's probably what it's worth. Maybe sell Turkey a few of the islands they're fighting over; which means they could cut the Defense budget as well. :)

    Lookit me! I saved Greece! :D

    lol. Well, there's that. But yeah. Pride will be the undoing of Greece. That's for sure.

    And I will gladly be the martyr to that ^_^

    I haven't even heard our own press cover that. If it's true... love of God, great idea going to the guy who's going to rack up another 10 trillion dollars in debt in the US with your hand out for a loan. Our country is screwed as it is.

    Haha!There's no Soviet Russia now though,that's the point!JOIN DA COMMONWEALTH! :p

    By the way if anyone has the picture of Greece being like Zimbabwe right now,it's not.Relax.We still spend money on stupid stuff like extra TVs,better furninature,clubbing, new shoes(especially women)and latest cell-phone models.

    I think Americans spend much more money with their credit cards than we do.We're just suckers for loans.A greek can get a loan to buy ice-cream if that's possible.

    Join the club... the worst thing is knowing the hammer of higher taxes etc will fall but the politicians are still pretending it won't, and that by spending money they haven't got it will some how make it all better (presumably only as long as they're in office).

    Maybe if you worked harder and paid off loans Greece wouldn't be in this mess. :D
