    I have friends in Greece, and they have started to talk about starting a revolution against their politicians, against Brussels (they want to burn down the EU-building) and they want to hang Merkel and Sarkozy. I can’t describe their anger, but i guess most greek people are pissed now.

      The Rise of Green Slavery- endentured economic servitude

      It’s a zero-sum game with no winners. The bankers have looted and indebted the country, the politicians have been sacrificed under the blade of the guillotine in the Reign of Terror, and technocrats enact austerity measures for banks, while everything of value in the country of Greece that can deemed an ‘asset’ will end up on the discount auction block. What’s left? Bankrupt banks, a depleted national treasury, draconian austerity measures, and a public liquidation of state and private assets which could include everything from railroads and national monuments to national works of art. This is not a depression; its economic servitude and though the rage is understandable…it will accomplish absolutely nothing but more suffering and deprivation for the masses. Worst, it’s only the beginning of what will soon unfold across the planet as sovereign national budgets go bust.

        A quick glance of what we have become in the United States will undoubtedly reaffirm your statement. The vast majority of the work force (the middle class) are in a no win situation as we speak. We MUST continue to work in order to keep a roof over our heads and food on our table, unfortunately wages have fallen well behind the rate of inflation and the middle class works solely to get by. There is little hope of a bright future when your entire paycheck is used to pay for survival essentials or the expenses required to earn the paycheck for those essentials (gas, car maintenace, BMV tags, insurance, road tolls, vehicle inspection expenses etc.) We have quickly become endentured servants to the “american dream”. It has been estimated that over 40% of our incomes are used to pay taxes in one form or another. Our freedoms, liberties and our pursuit of happiness are long gone, unfortunately we just dont know it.

    It seems to me that this type of reactionby the populace would be expected. Do these lawmakers really expect the greek people to just accept the fact they are losing their future? But i guess after reading it, i think the title should be: “A look into America’s future.”

    The lawmakers of Greece are unaffected by austerity. Because they don’t feel its affects, it means nothing to them to pass it on to the people. So when the Greek people go berserk with rage of contempt for their “lawmakers”, it’s really the lawmakers who are responsible for the rioters actions regardless of the outcome. If they are going to make cuts, cut the lawmakers pay and benefits equal to what the people are paying. Why aren’t they suffering too?

  6. Oh Europe, … Europe what are you doing?
    Basil: I don’t want any trouble. Alexis Zorba: Life is trouble. Only death is not. To be alive is to undo your belt and look for trouble. [...] Zorba: Damn it boss, I like you too much not to say it. You’ve got everything except one thing: madness! A man needs a little madness, or else… Basil: Or else? Zorba: …he never dares cut the rope and be free. [...] Basil: Teach me to dance, will you? Zorba: Dance? Did you say… dance?! … Come on my boy… together… Let’s go… hop … Again… hop … [...] Zorba: Boss, I have so much to tell you, … I never had loved a man like you … [...] Zorba: Hey boss, did you ever see a more splendiferous crash?! … Oh, … You can laugh too!… hmmm… Hey!… You laugh!

    It’s only a matter of time before Britain will have thousands and thousands of Greeks… We thought the Polish population was bad? This will have far-reaching effects… “They all falling like dominoes”.

    Oh boy! Since you wrote this, Alvin, I have had a discussion with Mum about Daniel 8! Look for what happens to Greece; Media and Persia. I’ve just been looking up who these last two are. Ready, folks? Both are Iran!

    Got links to prove it if anybody wants them. When I tell Mum later today, she might fall off her chair! (Metaphorically, of course). The news blew me away.

      The 4 world kingdoms resurface again in world history as time draws to a close – Daniel 2

      Babylon- Modern day Iraq (First Gulf War)
      Persia – Modern day Iran
      Greece – Modern day Greece (ground zero of Sovereign Debt crisis)
      Rome- Vatican calls for a New World Order

      As I said in my book, what’s old is new again and these same four kingdoms on which most of the world’s destiny has spun throughout history are once again at the center of the final changes sweeping across the world.

      • I’m still a bit iffy about Rome. There are so many ‘interpretations’ out there that I have to be very careful. Not surprised you mentioned Iraq, although I’ll have to do some more research of my own on everything. I’m convinced Islam has the biggest part to play in the end times as the Bible is a Middle Eastern book for the most part, although I now see there’s much persecution coming to Europe. I keep seeing Norway mentioned in the news. Much appreciated, hearing from you:)
