No mention in the story about how much his pension was cut. How much did he pay into the pension? Was it based on unrealistic, pie in the sky projections? No mention about what sent the country into bankruptcy. No mention whether it was the “let the government take care of you” mentality that became ingrained in the society that drove the country to ruin.

Just today, obama gave a speech explicitly DEMANDING that this country follow the Greek example. That’s right—I said it—obama DEMANDS that this country bankrupt itself! It’s the compassionate thing to do— just ask this Greek gentleman.

“unrealistic, pie in the sky projections”

Most likely, and he probably spent accordingly. I wonder if he had any relatives to live with?

The speech was just today? Perhaps he meant to imply that he wishes we would just all go to the square and shoot ourselves. THAT’s what he’s really hoping for, IMHO.

The story of this Greek gentleman has me thinking of Socrates... I wish he had thought of another option, but he definitely got the world’s attention, and I’m guessing that was the point. Only time will tell if people really heard the message or not.
