It's hard to know where to begin with this pathetic post.
There's a lot I could say to you right now, but I wont because it would land me in trouble with the moderators.
Bankruptcy? Sorry, didn't happen.
People short of money? Sorry, didn't happen.
The only "shortage of money" experienced is in the government budget.
You probably haven't even worked out yet that the "bail out" hasn't happened yet.
If you don't know what you are talking about, it's sometimes best to keep quiet.
"Sell your islands, you bankrupt Greeks - and the Acropolis too!" says the headline in the Bild newspaper.
According to a specialised real-estate website, Greek islands evoke images of sunglass-sporting shipping magnates sipping champagne on enormous yachts, but cost as little as $2m (£1.3m).
And those forces are still on the loose, and murder of Socratis is what they do when preparing terrain to further their destructive agenda.
The government never was bankrupt. Not even close. Bankrupt implies there is no money. There is money.
The issue with the governments finances is there wasn't enough money to pay debts, because of speculator attacks(originating in the USofA, thus the people who destroyed your country). This forced a situation were the government couldn't secure financing because rates were too high due to the attacks. So instead of borrowing money from banks, they borrowed some money from EU governments * Note - this is not the rescue package.

You mean those 400 b owned by middle class?
Which government will eventually take over, because it was created by black market? I think next step will be criminalizing Greeks and confiscating their property. There are several ways to do that.
Introducing austerity measures has nothing to do with bankruptcy? Oh, I see - potential bankruptcy... That makes the difference.
Would you please elaborate on this.
There was not enough money (which doesn't mean bankruptcy?) because it was due to Goldman Sachs attack?
You know BLV, you are really not a very good spinner.
The reason that Mr. Giolias was a target remains unclear, although some Web sites have linked him to comments critical of militant groups. Angelos Tsigris, a professor of criminology at Greece’s police academy, said Mr. Giolias might have been singled out because he did not employ bodyguards like many of Greece’s prominent investigative journalists, with whom he had cooperated. “They might have chosen him because he was an easy target,” Mr. Tsigris said.
But the Sect of Revolutionaries had warned that journalists were on its hit list. In a proclamation issued in February last year, the group accused the media of “manufacturing news to keep the public docile and subservient.”
An official at the Greek police headquarters, which itself became a target last month when a letter bomb killed the assistant to the public order minister, confirmed Tuesday that the force was treating the murder of Mr. Giolias as a terrorist act.
"The cops are like doughnuts - they're no good unless they have a hole in the middle," it said. "Start handing in your resignations, otherwise we will start measuring graves."
The Sect of Revolutionaries also warned that prominent Greeks, including capitalists, state functionaries and journalists, would be targeted soon.
After three serious attacks on police in the past 40 days, officers are becoming stressed and understandably nervous, our correspondent adds.
On Wednesday, a policeman working near the US embassy shot and seriously injured a guard outside the ambassador's residence. The officer is reported to have claimed that he thought he was going to be shot.
They have held demonstrations protesting against the violence, saying there are human beings behind the uniforms who are just as poorly paid as the average Greek.

You really like to stretch your imagination.
From bankrupt governments, to vanishing middle classes, now he is claiming police death squads have been formed.
Why stop at police death squads, why don't you just go ahead and accuse the authorities from the government down to the lowest ranking soldier and police officer of being reptilians planning on taking over the galaxy. Makes about as much sense as the other garbage you've been posting here.
Things are dark now, and will get darker. But rest assured brighter days are coming. We shine in the darkest hours.
The spirit of resistance & the thirst for freedom will never die within us. It's part of who we are.

Belgrade - A prominent Serbian journalist, Teofil Pancic, was recovering on Sunday after he was hit with metal bars and badly injured by unknown assailants the day before, police said.
"The attackers entered a bus after Pancic, assaulted him with metal bars... and fled the vehicle," police said in a statement.
Pancic, 45, a columnist for Vreme (Time), a newsweekly, who is known for his criticism of nationalism and sports-related hooliganism, suffered bruises to his head and arms when he was set upon by two men who had been following him.
Journalists in Serbia are often targeted for their reports on organised crime, war crimes and hardline nationalists. Most such attacks go unsolved, including the murder of two journalists in the 1990s when the late strongman Slobodan Milosevic was in power and a third one in 2001.
Gunmen who killed 17 people at a party in northern Mexico earlier this month were let out of prison to carry out the attack, state prosecutors say.
Guards at a prison in Durango state are accused of lending the inmates weapons and vehicles to commit the murders in neighbouring Coahuila state before returning them to their cells.
The same group of prisoners are thought to have carried out other killings.
The prison director and at least two other officers are under investigation.
