Syriza party chief Tsipras tones things down a bit on the bailouts (from "barbaric," "null and void"), telling CNBC of his desire to keep Greece in the eurozone and his willingness to negotiate with the Troika to achieve such. Polls have Tsipras as the leading vote-getter if another election is held in June.

    When America's parasites are told their benefits will be cut and taxes raised to fund their massive ship of state, all hell will break out. The Greeks have nothing on our thugs who burn down their own cities for kicks on Halloween and overturn vehicle and loot just because their sports team lost or won. Think New Orleans after Katrina. The thugs will come out like roaches.

    Note to self:
    1. Tell them what they want to hear.
    2. Get elected.
    3. Eat, drink, celebrate and be merry.
    4. Face reality in the morning.
    5. Try to tell them why your promises can't be kept.

    It's all ridiculous, as well as distressing. Tsipras, now that his campaign promises are due, is willing to "negotiate" in order to stay in the EU. But ... NO austerity. The Greeks have partied on, dug their hole deeper, are throwing temper tantrums because the Candy store is closed, and yet the world is weary of shelling out more funds while Greece refuses austerity. Better to be out of the EU, learn to pull their own weight, while the EU concentrates on those willing to face reality. There's a lesson for us here, too.

    Let's get real ... who wouldn't vote to keep the Euro and not have any austerity? This guy is a shoo-in ... until he has to keep his promises!
