Labyrinthos...Adding to a long history of epic inane and asinine comments on FReerepublic.

How did these accounts accumulate over 100,000 Euro if they belong to people who sucked welfare from cradle to grave?

There is some hot money from Russia, BUT MOST WAS EARNED LEGITIMATELY IN BUSINESS OR INVESTMENT, much by retired foreigners (e.g UK).

With a Greek name I'd expect you have at least a minimal understanding of that part of the world.

Well, at least it's no worse than your comprehension of any other topic.

You're kidding right? It's like the illegal Mexican I once knew who bragged about how he had $250,000 in his bank account because he worked hard to build a small construction business. In the next breath he bragged how he and his family got free health care at the local emergency room, free food from the government, and free education for his anchor babies, but he didn't pay any taxes because he worked off the books. I bet every Freeper who every lived would have hundreds of thousands of dollars in the bank account if we worked off the books in a shadow economy, didn't pay taxes, and sucked off the governemtn teat.

Cyprus, Greece, and other countries in that region have some of the highest rates of tax avoidance in the world. It's part of the culture. In some areas, the untaxed underground economy rivals the GDP. Yet when the government even hints at cutting a benefit to get its fiscal house in order, the same people who have turned tax avoidance into a sport, take to the steeet in violent protest.
