Athens, greece, Greece
The beginning of the end of Greece
A country that was once the naval and birthplace of civilization is now the target for destruction. With unemployment climbing towards 30%, Greeks are close to losing everything. Taxes are increasing and now even the unemployed, with no income, no assets are being told to pay taxes.
For the 85 year old widow who is left with a pension of less than 200 euro per month, is being told that she has to pay taxes for her old run-down house, pay "emergency" taxes which are now included in her electricity bill, pay taxes on her 200 euro pension, have her medication coverage revoked, risk of losing another 20% of her pension and always with the worry of new taxes.
Within 1 or 2 years, this old 85 year old woman will have lost her house and will be on the street, "thankfully" not alone but joined by tens of thousands with the same fate.
The "Troika" is standing firm with their terms in order for Greece to receive their next "bailout" package, but in reality, isn't this another nail in the coffin?
The Greek government is in a frenzy to seal the deal, but in reality - who is this going to save? How you can have economic growth in a destitude country, is it someone's plan to bring Greece to it's knee's and then do with it as they want?
How can you have growth when you cut people's heads, arms and legs and ask them to produce?
Is Greece evolving into their own nouveau modern day archaeological wonder?
It is written somewhere that you can't make bricks without straw, so what's going on then, is everyone waiting for a miracle?
The workers are taxed to the hilt, their salaries cut in half, their future is bleak, their children have no future, the government is in panic mode, PLUS they now want the Greeks to work 6 days a week in order to be more productive............DOING WHAT??? Oh, did I also mention that Greece is No.1 in Europe for the most hours per week of work....I guess that's not important - production, production production!!
So with all that said and done and still doing, they succeeded in producing a country with no future, no jobs, no economy, no growth and most importantly of all, no future for the children of Greece.
It has been said many times that Greece is the "Fillet mignon" of Europe - everyone is hungry now.
God help the people of Greece overcome this living nightmare.
