Anyway, sex switching is the future. There is no reason anyone should be stuck with a sex arbitrarily chosen by nature. Everyone should be able to pick and choose whatever is best for them at any given moment in their life. Thankfully at least the Irish people have the insight to understand this.

Perhaps, but in a free market society where nobody does anything that doesn't benefit him, how does an individual Greek justify paying taxes that will just be sucked overseas? By all free market logic, Greeks should be doing everything they can do to keep their money to theirselves.

What benefit would an individual Greek receive that would make him voluntarily agree to pay taxes to fund this "debt"? This whole mess stinks of socialism, and much of it enforced by non-Greeks as well. What you need to do is show each and every Greek how his sacrifice to others will be rewarded with profits in the near future.

I didn't send a dime to Nepal because everyone who asked for it made more money than me, but I did give all my spare change to beggars in the streeet who asked for it because they were in obvious need. Charity is about giving, and the "talented" MBA type CEOs just exist to suck in as much income from anyone than can.

I don't care if they are successful, only that they give. And I can tell you I am not the only one who quit giving part of my pay because of their CEO's greed. People got so tired of giving to an organization whose president sucked up more than we earned that we all refused to donate anymore. Charity is about giving, not profiting.
