Greek Debt Crisis 4 The World: Political Cartoons 8 May 2010

From Denny: Greece is not the only European country with financial troubles, required to cut back on its spending ways and lavish lifestyle. Other countries may be following on their heels: Portugal, Spain, Ireland and Italy. Hopefully not but maybe so. Right now the Greek government agreed to Germany's austerity conditions in exchange for a bailout of epic proportions even for this Drama King culture.

The Greeks are not happy about cutbacks. Apparently, this generation does not seem to understand the concept of sacrifice as previous generations did. There is no time like the present to find out what it means. Even an ancient culture such as this one is only as good as its current generation chooses to be good or foolish stewards of what previous generations gifted them.

I'm sure when the American and European economies began to falter, experiencing our own cutbacks of services, lavish lifestyles and massive job loss, out the window went the tourism industry the Greeks once enjoyed to fuel their economy. Looks like we all have to "stay-cation" now in our own countries and literally our own back yards until things improve. We all need to get serious about broadening our economies to not depend upon only one industry for income.

And along the same thinking of the comedy movie "My Big Fat Greek Wedding"
