Memo to the EU
From: Unforeseen Contingencies
EU, the Greeks have overwhelmingly rejected your offer of further funding. Your request that in return for other peoples' money they cut defense spending, reduce government bureaucracy, stop giving tax breaks in tourist areas, cut pension bonuses, and start working were too much for them (their absurdist Finance Minister deemed these "terrorism.")
The Greeks have spoken. Stop discussing bailouts with them. Let them go their own way, on their own. They will suffer like crazy, and go through economic hell, but it will be good for them. As this Greek entrepreneur correctly points out, they can make their country work if they stop whining, get off their crybaby Greek arses, and start producing at least as much as they consume.
No further funding. Cut them off. In the long run, it will be good for them.
Note: I regret I can't figure out how to post the video interview with entrepreneur Nektaria Kakousi. everyone should hear her insightful analysis. Click the link. It's short and beautiful as well.
