Don't lend your hand to raise no flag atop no ship of fools

Greenspan goes to Greece

Athens News:

A 61-year old pensioner was found hanging from a tree on Wednesday, in the Agios Filipos park of the Nikaia area. The lifeless body of the pensioner was discovered by a park attendant, who also found his suicide note which read as follows:

"The police does not know me. I have never touched a drink in my life. Of women and drugs I have never even dreamed of. I have never been to a kafenio (coffee house), I just worked all day! But I commited one horrendous crime: I became a professional at age 40 and I plunged myself in debt. Now, I’m an idiot of 61 years and I have to pay. I hope my grandchildren are not born in Greece, seeing as there will be no Greeks here from now on. Let them at least know another language, because Greek will be wiped off the map! Unless of course there was a politician with Thatcher’s balls so as to put us and our state in line. Signed, Alexandros 29/5/2012”

His neighbours described the pensioner – a father of two- as a hard working man. He had been employed in ship repairs and construction sites and up until recently, he had been working as an electrician on a merchant ship.

He was facing sizeable financial problems and it was these that pushed him over the edge.
So to all who say that America, with its 100% debt/GDP and serial 8% - 10% GDP deficits, is exactly like Greece: this irrefutably proves that America is not Greece.  In America, the guy would have blown it on booze, drugs, and hookers.

In America, the guy would have shot his entire family before killing himself.

Alas, another Boomer bites the dust. On behalf of everyone under 40, good riddance.
