    Right. It's obvious that you only read things that you agree with.

    That's the problem with a LOT of Americans.

    Don't let things like facts get in the way.

    That says otherwise.

    Let us know how Greece votes at that meeting, okay? Then you'll have some basis for claiming they didn't lose their right to vote.
    LOL what basis does the article have to say it? NONE.

    In fact the best they can come up with is this

    Some German officials have called for Greece to be denied a vote in all EU matter until it emerges from "receivership".
    Okay, who said it? And even if someone important from Germany said it, it clearly states... "have called for", as in it has not happened and hence the title of the article is false.

    Other than that they provide no proof what so ever that it has happened. Hence it is a freaking hit job by a Euro Skeptic newspaper.

    So Americans don't pay attention to facts? Does that include yourself?

    But hark! What's this? What are the socialists in charge of Europe saying about Greece?



    Seems...the Europeans have some clue what is needed when a nation is running a deficit.

    Why is it that the precise group that is doing it's best to remake America in Europe's image, the Democrats, flatly refuse to even discuss meaningful cuts in federal spending, when that's what their heros in Europe are demanding Greece do?
    You know, we fought a war and created a new nation because of the idea of no taxation without representation. Perhaps Greece can read our history, learn a lesson, and leave the EU?

    Just sayin'
