I hate when my government cuts programs and makes life hard. So, I know that I wouldn't like the proposal. I don't know what is the best choice. Both answers sound crappy to me.

You need to rephrase your question to "Greeks voted "No" by a large margin against The European Union's latest bailout offer. Do you think the Greeks voted the right way?" Because the entire continent of Europe did not offer Greece a bailout. So, I was confused and could therefor not answer your question properly.
Thank You. Have a lovely day.

I'm not sure. Greece needs to cut back on its spending and find ways to bring in income. There might be heavy taxation on the their people and when the exports and imports might have heavy taxes. Travel in Greece might become very expensive. Greece has set a good example of what could happen to the United States. The U.S. is in deep debt, too. The U.S. needs to pay off its debt all the way without adding more to it and not create any more debt after the debt gets paid off.

meh voting no was the power play. Ze germans are gonna have to make a much better offer. If they let greece collapse it will fuq the economies of all the eu countries. Heavy austerity will just shrink the greek economy and boost recruitment of the greek fascist parties(hello golden dawn)

The average Greek worker retires at age 56, but the average German worker retires at age 66. The Greeks want the Germans to continue to work so that they don't have to. The Greeks also don't pay the taxes they already have. Is it any wonder the Germans want serious reforms and the Greeks want to keep things the same?

You summed it up very nicely, Trader.

Unfortunately, the U.S. is headed in the same direction with all the entitlements and the borrowing we are doing to pay for it.

If you and Starfish64 are referring to Social Security as being an entitlement, it is NOT. I am on Social Security and I paid into that fund from the age of 16. It was a mandatory retirement payment. I also paid for Medicare for decades when I had no medical insurance. I said I was paying for other people to have what I couldn't afford for myself and I was told repeatedly that I was paying into that system just like SS so I would have it when I retired. Here's what is an entitlement:

Welfare
SSI
Food Stamps
WIC
Medicaid
Lifeline Phones

The difference being that Social Security (excluding SSI) is something you have to WORK for and PAY INTO. It is no more of an entitlement than any other form of retirement income protection. The entitlements...you don't have to hit a lick to get those.

All of that being said, what some call entitlements, others call having a safety net for the less fortunate. Unfortunately, the less fortunate's ranks are growing exponentially as our own economy is gutted from the inside out, mostly by the people who wail and gnash their teeth that we even have a safety net and continually come at it with machetes.

And not yes, but OH*HELL*TO*THE*YES remove the cap on contributions. That had to be the most stupid thing the gov't ever did, especially considering they were at the same time pillaging the freakin' funds!
Starfish64
on 07/07/15
NoirAngelique, I agree Social Security and Medicare are not entitlements (I never said they were). However, everything else you mentioned is an entitlement, and I would add HEAP onto your list as well.

I understand many people fall upon hard times and may need a ┬Łtemporary boost┬Ł, however we can not continue to be a country where only half the people work and the other half do not work and only collect entitlements for a lifetime. Some people are permanently on entitlements and SOME people make no effort to better themselves.

The way to correct the situation is for the U.S. to promote small businesses, job growth, and less senseless regulations so people can find good work that will support them. RIght now the government is doing every possible to worsen the economy.

People need jobs not entitlements the country can not afford.

If we continue on this path we WILL end up like Greece. ...that's my 2 cents anyway. :)

The Thought Police flagged ssnolan for saying **entitlements would be fine if they lifted the cap on contributions.**

SERIOUSLY??? Do you people doing this have ANY idea what is a flaggable comment AT ALL? If you won't read the ToS to see what is and isn't ok to flag, then you should AT LEAST read it to see what happens if you continue to maliciously flag people. Oh, yeah, that's right, there are consequences in the ToS.

I worked at the post office as a carrier even though it is slowly getting more equal it is still heavily biased towards men. Mail carriers are required to do a heck of a lot more bending, stooping, lifting, standing, walking etc. Than most people realize. Most think we walk in get mail that is ready for us to take out and just drive. WRONG! We go in and case mail of all sorts and sizes for a minimum of 3 hours before we go to the street. We don't all drive routes mine was more out of the truck than in. I was required to be able to pick up and carry packages of up to 70 pounds. Our trucks have no ac, barely any heat, a seat with any padding is one we have doctored ourselves to be able to have. The insides of which are ovens and average 10-20 degrees higher than the normal outside temperatures are. People like you and me need the people that make decisions on our pay to actually do our job for an entire week. We have had one postmaster that tried doing a carriers job, once, he made it through half a day and called it quits. The sad part is that he had nothing to do with our pay scale. He only did it because he lost a bet with the carriers and had to pay up. If they were actually forced to do labor intensive jobs they would hike the pay up to cover the energy expenditure.

Really? I'm very interested to see your sources on that. Mine is based on what I put in, nobody ever asked me how hard I worked and then adjusted the amount accordingly. I wish they would have, because I was an industrial welder-fitter, my tool bag I carried from my gang box to my work site weighed 75 pounds and welding lead isn't light, either. I'm pretty sure I would have gotten a HUGE upward adjustment for A. not being lazy and B. working my backside off every freakin' day in a man's world where just not being treated in an abusive manner was a good day.

Now that I looked it up, I'm still not sure, but I think they made the wrong choice for now because borrowing money can be risky.
