Why do greeks go to strike?
They already never work .

What is the differance of the working or not working for the Greeks.

They never produce anything.
Just bullshit.

They have been stealing EU funds since 1981 and still crying.

They even have killed a pregnant woman with her baby in

""NO I DO NOT WANT TO WORK JUST STEAL MORE FUNDS""

demonstrations in Athens for the money.

An ordinary Greek takes at least 1200Euro for the retirment salary at 53 but German taxpayers work till 65-67 for 1500Euro retiretment salaries.

Greeks are parasites of EU and the world.

No other nation has a proverb like """Only clocks and fools work in Greece""".

Greece is the tumor of the europe which was created by the UK&France in 1800s to make an structural base for the famous Greko Roman European culture.

So the spoilt kid of the Europe sucked the blood of the her own partners's like an anofel mosquito and stole at least 420billions of euros with fraudulent and faked reports like showing the number of the donkeys ten times more or 20times more olive trees or goats etc.

Europe is like Dr.Frankenstein and the greek is monster.

If the monster is killing anyone EU never cares.

But it is time for the monster to kill Dr.Frankenstein.

But it is too late.

Old and tired Europe needs young Turks a nd Russians but arrogancy kills EU.

To0 bad.

You are not polite at all.

But what else can I expect from the offspring of killers who have committed the Armenian genocide have worked with the 3rd Raih and Hitler on the Israelian genocide have continued doing that in Constantinoupoles the last 12 years for Kurds and the list continues.

From people who have never accepted their crimes and being totally ashamed for their lack of glorious history say lies, threaten even Sarkozi and pretend to be Greeks every summer just because they live near by Aegean.

From people that did not have an alphabet until early 1900, when Kemal created a mix of English, Frensh, Deutch, Greek etc so they could start speeding their names.

Yes I believe it is time for young killers to come out of the dark and finish another nation up. As history has shown Turks can do this kind of job, charge free just for pleasure.

As someone living in Greece at the moment I can say that this country has done nothing to help the situation it now finds itself in. Greeks have stood by and waited for everyone else to take responsibility for the mess that they have created. Why has no one looked into where exactly this money has gone? I am sick of hearing what the Greeks have done for the rest of the world, as someone mentioned earlier if we all go down that road we can all contribute to what each country has done for the world, the fact still remains that Greece has got itself into this mess with its lies about joining the EU. What were they trying to proove and to who.They are lucky that they are being helped out at all and it will not solve the problem it just prolongs the mess that they are in.I have lived here for 25 years and I can honestly say that I have not met a Greek yet who is a good business man. Greeks have not concept of 'abiding by rules' and love to pass the buck whithout taking responsibilty for the wrongs that they have created.It is rare to meet an open minded Greek who will look outside of Greece and listen to good sense but I fear that this beautiful country geographically will take a very very long time to overcome this mess that they have created themselves to get out of.Meanwhile ordinary citizens are left to pay for what other so called educated and elected people have done with electricity bills soaring and the illegal billing of extra tax on bills to be paid for by us, less wages,sometimes as little as 450euros a months to live on soaring prices in supermarkets strikes almost daily,and I ask why dosn't somebody in the EU council come here and seek out those responsible for the monies loaned throught the EU years ago ask questions mainly where is it????? Simple and easy but still nobody has done this. If I worked in a shop and stole from the till wouldn't it be a matter of time before questions were asked? It is the same here. So the Greece I came to all those years ago is not the same,they should never have got the euro, nobody asked but I fear it is far far to late and maybe they can look into their history books and find some solution for this mess and then they can tell us all about it.

Sharon, I share your angst. Greece is Mexico without prisons. The reason Greeks fare so well in other societies as immigrants is that they fear the law. Here in Greece, you could murder a person and be out of jail in months. Owe the IRS 800 million euro, and re-negotiate the settlement to a few hundred thousand Euros... Because, if they don't, they have no prison to put you in, and no form of punishment. The system is rigged this way in order to protect the big fish who do far more harmful things.
The worst part of it all is that the corruption is still rampant. People are collecting salaries without ever working at the job. Once caught, they simply lose the salary. NO ONE pays anything back!

Greek=Theft
Greek=Thief
Greek=Klephtokratia
Greek=""Only clocks and fools work in Greece""
Greek=Simply NOTHING But theft overall.

Look who are greeks...
I know it is not easy to owercome inferiorty complex of being a manufactured country/nation and a state.

I understand your inferiorty to be screwed under Turkish mandatory for 450years.

I really know your anger and hate for the kicked by Turks in every 50 years.

I understand you that your everything Greek is a lie.

Some stolen from Albania,some from Macedonia,some from
Pheanians,most of them from Egytiptians,some of them from Turks
etc.

The ancient maps have been drawn by your patrons England and France to make you a base to have an state against the Turks in 1821.

Mithology has been manufactured as your culture.
Even your mythology is manufactured by others to keep Greeks away from sea trade in the old times.
Than this mythology of 150years became your history(!)hahahahaah

and culture(hahahahaah)

As everything greek your mythology is also Klephtocratic lie.

First king and monarchy;King Otto of Bavarian and Danish origin.

First president'
Ioannis Kapodistrias'...real name Giovanni Capo d'Istria (an Italian), of Venetian nobility residing in Corfu.

First PM,
Josef Ludwig von Armansperg (a German), president of Otto's Privy Council.

Former PM's
Kostas Karamanlis and his family.(an ethnic Vlach from Asia Minor).

Legal system;
Georg Ludwig von Maurer (a German), devised the modern Greek penal code and civil procedure.

National flag;
Blue, white colours and stripes (of Bavarian origin), and the cross (of Danish origin)...chosen to honor the fact that the modern Greek Royal family is...of Bavarian and Danish origin.

National anthem;
Written by 'Nikolaos Mantzaros'...real name Niccoló Manzaro (an Italian), of Venetian nobility residing in Corfu.

National dress;The Fustanella (Albanian).
National music ;Rembetiko - Rembetiku (Turkish), Anatolian peasant music.

As you see your all have is abig lie.
Your are not even Hellen.

German Government took out all hellenic bulshits from the School books due to their baseless background.

You are not the inheritors of the Byzantion.
Because there was no byzantion until 1821 when England and France decided to make a GREECE(!) for the thieves.

But even your independence war(!)has been done by the Albanians.
Hahahahaahaha

Even your independence has been given you by the Brits,Russians,Frenchs and Albanians:)))

German Historian Hieronymus Wolf wrote a book about the fall of Istanbul in 1557 """"" Corpus Historiae Byzantinć """"" ".

brits and Frenches created a Byzantion Empire in 1821 with this book.

Konstantin the Greek was not even Greek.
He was East Roman his real name was ""Gaius Flavius Valerius Aurelius Constantinus""" and he was Albanian like your savior(!)in 1821.

Konstantinopolis was not Konstantinopolis and it was Nea Roma.

Konstantin was not even Greek .

He was not even Orthodox.

He was not even Christian.

He was a pagan albanian roman.

He used Apollon the Roman god in the moneys and he used his portrait as ""Sol Victius"""Sun God.

He was baphtished by the thief prists after his death:)))Hahahahaahahaha

as a normal Klephtocratic Greek habit.
