If only people here in the US would get off their couches and do the same...I guess one can wish right?

There goes my trip to Greece. I was making plans to go to Egypt when the citizens decided to overthrow their government. Now I am waiting on HOLD until further notice. I have no idea what they are demonstrating against in Greece probably the same thing all the other ones are. Global Bankers stole all their money way or another.

We hope to keep it civilized but to be honest man. If you visit greece rather choose some islands or anything except athens. Athens is # as it is. Nothing to see except Acropolis. So even if all # hits the fan in greece all islands and touristic places are still ok.

Ahh but you see, the Greeks come from a proud bloodline, they are the descendants of the Spartans.
It is in the Greek blood to be proud powerful warriors.
Here in the US we have...hey wait a minute, we're descendants of revolutionaries.
Hmmm I guess you are right, wth happened to US?
Well maybe bravery is like twins in the bloodline sometimes it skips a few generations.


(Edit)
I just hope that all in the fray keep in mind that there is some serious architecture there and to avoid those zones.
Wars have a way of erasing historic monuments.

Must be man...I don't understand it I mean I try to educate people all the time but it seems most people just don't care. I don't know how you can't see what's going on in the world. It has gotten to such a "tipping point" that people all over are standing up and saying no more but hardly any Americans can see the same thing happening in their country and really it's gonna hit us harder here than most places cause when you fall from higher up it hurts just that much more!

HAHA! You just made my day!


Most people dig that crap but it really is media and social influences that are wrecking the American Spirit. I just hope to God that we find our courage like the Greeks.

I can't accept that as an excuse though cause I have been exposed to all that stuff and was growing up during the early testing of all those psych meds and stuff. I watched MTV and a bunch of reality shows when they came out and I'm not a zombie. I lived in a city and drank that same water and even had the old fluoride dental treatments...ate bad food and all that yet I can see very clearly whats going on here. I just don't understand why people choose to still be blind and lazy. I don't think I ever will

Think of it this way,

If a bomb is dropped, A huge bomb, right in the middle of your neighborhood, and 90%
of the people die, are you going to say that you don't buy into the idea of a bomb having the ability to kill people
because somehow YOU were able to survive. YOU lived thru it, therefore, it must be something else that KILLED everyone else!

The logic breaks down pretty quickly.
It was never meant to affect EVERYONE, nor could it.
There are those of us who are mentally stronger than others. This has been accounted for.
They know that they can't reach EVERYONE!
They aren't trying to reach EVERYONE!
They don't need to reach EVERYONE!!!

They only need to reach the.........wait for it.....wait for it..........MAJORITY!!!!!!

Think about it.

I guess your right on that one...it's funny to think back to being a kid I'd have never thought this is how it would be when I grew up and didn't think that most of my friends were so weak minded but alas I guess they are. Either way I will continue to try to reach people. I'm just glad there is a growing amount of evidence in easy to digest forms out there I can use to prove my point to them. Now I just have to figure out how I can get someone to watch more than 5 min. of video on the subject...but at least I don't have to get them to read
sad but
all the same...

OK, It's just another protest, but this time they are inspired by "their Spanish brothers and sisters". More info here.

Take it as a compliment.
You are mentally stronger than the Majority of people on this planet.
So are....MOST of the people on ATS.
For whatever reason, whatever variable, we slipped thru the cracks.

Greece at this point is the tennis ball of the "strong" EU countries. Telling us to pay like 1 trillion euro and yet germany that still owe money to greece from WW2 rightfully (like 77 billion euro) they dont do anything. And yet those countries keep selling weapons to greece and turkiye to keep us in constant tension and not be able to take our heads out of the sea for a breath.

Unemployment in greece has skyrocketed and preety soon we wont be able even to pay the money to the retired people.

And the funny part is that they ask from the middle class and the low class to keep making sacrifices finanacially when the rest with money seem to escape from the irs etc etc.

At some point enough is enough.

Personal input: I believe what we saw in middle east and what we see in europe are two side of the same coin. You cant have the kind of war we see in the regimes of middle east so it was kind of "pushed" to enter to that state. In EU the equal thing would be the financial war we are facing right now which causes the results we now see.

Lets see where all this will lead.

I foresee a day very soon when riots and demonstrations
will be in every major city on the planet.

TPTB will fall from their perches
like leaves in the fall and are trampled
asunder just as easily.

Hope they enjoy their putrid existence
in a bunker forever, doomed to an
underground prison.

It's coming

u can bet the bank
