How could such a small country have so many civil servants? There will still be more left working after firing 180,000.

(End the occupation. Annex today.)
Government bureaucrats thrown out of work - a wonderful sight anywhere it happens.
I may just take my next vacation in Athens so's I can watch.

if only we truly felt their pain.. sadly, for them and us, it may all be too late anyway to avoid the abyss of a global blobocracy run amuck

I’m not sure which is more baffling; the fact that they have never once laid off a civil servant or the fact that 110 days of unexcused absence hadn’t let to termination before this.

"Its an upgrading of the public sector and its one demand of Greek society."
Oh, yeah, now that's a righteous upgrade--the kind that American society will demand in the near future. It's going to happen. There's no other way out. This is a default process. Better sooner than later.
By now, most of you should know why the socialists have been even more hysterical than usual in their desperate efforts to panic the private sector with threats against the rights of our nation. There's not enough money to keep their hordes of debt-dependent constituents acting up in offices and classrooms, and making money worthless (inflation) won't work for them, either. Where there's no value, there's no value. And bond investors cannot prop them up for long (haircuts coming).

(We Baby Boomers are croaking in an avalanche of rotten politics smelled around the planet.)
What a novel concept. Maybe WA DC should consider...

Nice to see a little good news coming out of Greece

(Now I know how the Indians felt to be sold out for a few beads and trinkets)
There is no better way to destroy an economy than to lay off workers who produce nothing of value to anyone.
At least that’s what the media and Democrats say. And I’m pretty sure they believe it.
Should have done this at least a decade ago

110 days of unexcused absence.
This is a joke, right?

(US$ - I owe you nothing. Euro - Who owes you nothing.)
As Margaret Thatcher said, eventually the Socialistic Welfare State runs out of other peoples’ money. Now we get to see what happens when we reach that point. And these people have no real skills that will translate into real jobs. I suspect it isn’t going to be pretty and it will involve a lot of violence.
