Java Iraq, Money, Religion, Ethics… Gay Roedy’s Health

Earth Expected To Fry

The accounting giant PricewaterhouseCoopers has published a report warning businesses that we are headed for a 4.0°C (7.2°F) or even a 6.0°C (10.8°F) [global temperature rise].

~ Naomi Klein (born:1970-05-08 age:46) This Changes Everything: Capitalism vs. the Climate

To put that in perspective, since the start of the industrial revolution, up to now, we have had a 0.18°C (0.32°F) rise.

Ungracious Greeks

Greece behaved irresponsibly. It spend much faster than it took in. It let the rich slide on paying income taxes. It turned a blind eye to corruption. It spent more than it could afford on entitlements. Then when the shit hit the fan, Germany and other nations came to their rescue with a $172 billion gift.

The Greeks spat in the faces of their benefactors, even depicting Angela Merkel as Hitler. The Greeks complained they deserved even more, that the gift should have no conditions, the gift did not arrive fast enough and that they should be supported in continuing to live in their old extravagant style.

You normally only see that outrageous degree of entitlement in a spoiled child. It never occurred to them the major sacrifice ordinary people all over Europe made to help them out. After that ungracious response, I doubt anyone will ever be moved to bail out Greece again.
