This old woman is begging for alms on the streets of Athens as a direct result of “austerity”. THIS is why Greeks are favouring SYRIZA more and more. The loans were NOT for profligate social spending… they enriched arms merchants in Germany, France, and the USA… and their soulless Greek middlemen. The affluent effluent has not sacrificed one damn thing so far… and they don’t bloody care if old people beg and starve… “the race goes to the swiftest”… “they should have saved”… “am I my brother’s keeper?”
Yes… you are. If the money-grubbing antics of the affluent effluent and the political “conservatives” aren’t objectively evil, then, what is? Think on this… evil does not come in red tights carrying a pitchfork… it comes wearing Prada or a three-piece suit. You can follow Christ or you can be a “brute in a suit”… it’s your choice. After all, a Cayman Islands offshore bank account is proof of financial skulduggery, isn’t it? Oh, yes, Wafflin’ Willy can take money from that offshore account, without limit, and use it to try to buy the presidency… even though he paid no US taxes on it. Citizens United said so… isn’t that special?
You can help the iaias, babas, and grannies live with a little dignity… or you can help enrich the affluent effluent further. It’s up to you. “Tennis, anyone?”
