Yeah, but it's this or compiling next week's spelling homework.

Which would you choose?

There are no leaders on here mate! What's wrong with Greece then?
I suppose the name "Forum Veteran" isn't actually a leader. But whatever.

Greece seriously needs to clean house on their economics. A good start might be ditching the euro.

Nup, he's real. Can't spell for sour apples but he's real (or as real as any Internet person.)

You don't actually know the first thing about Greece, do you?

Bless your cotton socks.

Do you even have a passport?

You were the one that was curious to know why no one could make the connection.
Well mainly I was just surprised that one particular poster thought it was unusual.

As you were.

Then why aren't you interested in what you are being told about the country by people who actually live here?



How many of your correspondents have been Swiss, so far?



Why? Have you been there?
First, who said I wasn't interested.

Second, I wasn't aware that most people here aren't Swiss.

Third, I don't have to go to Hell to know that I don't want to go there, to put it in extreme terms.

This is why pre-med students don't make decisions for countries they've never been too.

No, I recommend something along the lines of the Swiss franc. They need their own currency.

Nope, it's purely based on the number of posts. Most of which are vacuous, malicious, self-important attempts to be funny in the vain hope of gaining a laugh, a thanks or even some green blobbies. It implies absolutely nothing to do with leadership at all.
I should know.

Because you haven't responded once to anyone who has given you a serious reply to your initial post.

Quote:

You've been told often enough by now.

Quote:

So... you've read what some American journalist has written about a country you've never visited several thousand miles away and you think you know all about it.

Trust me. I've lived there. Greece is as close to a libertarian's paradise as anywhere I can think of. The government plays almost no role in the day to day lives of its people, because its people won't let it.

But don't be influenced by someone who actually knows what he's talking about. You've shown no interest in doing so anywhere else on this thread.

The New Drachma is sure to be one of the most stable currencies on the planet.

Are you telling me that we should make a role-model of Greek economics?

I need to look into that. Are they thinking of replacing the euro?

Are Greeks paying for their own debts?

Are the Greeks stupid?

You'd love the Greek way of thinking. It's as anti-government and anti-EU as any I've ever seen.

Along the lines. I think Switzerland needs its franc and Greece needs its whatever. Drachma. Just a currency of its own.
