    Does anyone else have the Greeks on their mind today as they vote on whether or not to agree to European bailout conditions? Sure, they aren't starving or without shelter or anything. Greece is a relatively rich country but their economy is in shambles. If they vote "No" as some early opinion polls suggest, it's possible that their banks won't open for a long time and when they do, they will receive significantly devalued drachmas instead of euros. Today, I'm giving thanks for a relatively healthy economy where I live.

    Very big conversation. Unity is the key word for us Greeks.

    Shouldn't have been allowed to join the EU in the first place. It only allowed them to get loans they will never be able to repay.

    If they could pull 300bn out of a hat, you'd think they'd have done it already...

    By voting "No" by a wide margin, the Greeks have indicated a willingness to risk going it alone. However, they are in the middle of a bank run and can't open without more funds from the European central banks (in other words European taxpayers).

    Sad situation.

    I just feel for hard-working people in all of Europe, whether they be Greek, French, German, Austrian, Dutch, Belgian or else...
    all of them being cheated out of their hard-earned money, whether they (willingly or unwillingly) funded the bail-outs or are losing out now because their government didn't look after them properly and honestly...

    :-D

    The celebrations in the street, which may or may not reflect the general mood in Greece, will not encourage other Euro nations to continue supporting the banks.

    Yes, it kind of reinforces the stereotype that "Greeks are slackers and (whole-day) siesta-takers", while others support them... :-|

    There are hard-working and less than hard-working individuals in every nation. Won't say more than that. :-)

    The whole European Union was never economically sustainable from day one. The Roman Empire will fall once more in the next 20 to 30 years.
