A SYMPATHY LETTER FROM GREECE

Dear Irish people!
Welcome to I.M.F. club. You are officially fucked up, big time! I am an unknown and unemployed Greek blogger and I think you need some nice words in these hard times you have. How do I know that? 'Cause I am palaiouras (old member) in I.M.F. club. Thank God our prime minister (a.k.a. G.A.P.) took care of it. So, as I said you need some beautiful words to heal the pain. Sorry! There are no nice words to make you feel a bit better. You are completely and totally fucked up like we (Greeks) are and like very soon Spanish, Portuguese and Italians will be.
Don 't worry. It 's like having sex in the ass. The very first time you will suffer but day by day, month by month and year by year you will be used to it. Who knows? Maybe one day you will ask for it, like many Greeks do nowdays! Imagine it like some kinky fashion. You will ask for help from E.U. and you will get it. The only thing you have to do to get this help is to forget that you are Irish and human. After you will get into Mnimonium (a.k.a. memorandum) era like we did here in Greece for approximately 60 years. Not big deal! Who knows? Maybe with the whole new situation you will have a reunion with northern Irland as a British colony. You will lose your jobs, your sallaries are gonna be decreased, you will not have money for the basics, your country dept will be increased etc. With one phrase we can say that you are in the very deep shit!
Well, maybe I should stop fooling around with the Irish financial situation. I am sorry if my humor was not so good but you see here in Greece the only weapon we have is humor. We don 't have anything else. No decency, no responsibillity, no dignity. We have some of the most corrupted and arrogant politicians of the world. Trust me! Your politicians are saints. We don 't have the guts to get rid of them. We had the opportunity but we didn 't. No rallies in the streets, no nothing. I believe and I hope you will have more courage than us to do the right thing. Let us be the example for you. When I say example I mean bad example (object lesson).
Allow me to describe you my reality. I lost my job and I really have no hopes for the future in Greece. I had dreams 'cause I am only 36. I cancelled my wedding three times because the money were never enough to do it. My fiance and I hope to have a family one day but we see that it 's almost impossible. As the days go by I see people I know and people who I don 't know, more miserable, more depressed in the streets to look for a way to escape from this bad situation but the only thing they find is a big nothing. Companies shut down. I give everywhere my CVs and I don 't get a phone call even to tell me they don 't need me. Taxes are getting increased more and more and the money I have are less and less day by day. I am studying in open university computer science because I wanna be something in my life. I want to be scientist. This is one of my dreams but I see that it 's gonna fade away because i can 't afford it. So, no job, no studies, no family, no dreams. What am I doing? I am not living, I 'm just existing and breathing.
Don 't do the same mistake that we did and we still do. I am one of the millions of greeks who pay the price. Which price? The price of the political arrogance, the price of the political irresponsibillity. There is no crisis. Everything is made up from the big countries of E.U. and not only, so they will get the natural wealth of the small countries for nothing.

I wish you the best
