Have you ever lived in Portugal? How about Germany or somewhere else? Many times it isn't what you know, it is who you know that will determine if you even get a spot at the table. (depending on where you live). Using anger and shame to motivate someone down on their luck is akin to pouring gasoline on fire. Leave psychology 101 for those who know how to use it and stick to what you are good at.
Also, a kind word here and there and a few words of sympathy works wonders for motivation.

what planet do you live on?

its NOT a level playing field for everyone. when there are no jobs, there is less money to go around, less money in circulation, less money to spend to hire your services. whatever you do for a living, if you were doing it in, say, portugal or greece, you would have less custom, and you would either have less work, or you would be charging less because your competitors have to charge less

i guess the planet you live on is planet fucking utopia

people are far less likely to give you or your opinion and 'advice' any credence when you run off at your mouth without giving ANY acknowledgement to the actual situation

oo you dont give a shit coz you have a second house! and anyone could do what you do! and you wont move a mouse for less than a ton an hour! and your only giving constructive criticism!

The Dow is dropping, these past couple weeks, and today seriously, yet, today gold and oil were hardly moving. It just looks as if everyone is plain old running out of money.

The un-writen rule seemed to be whenever the Dow dropped gold and oil went way far up, so whathas changed?

Finally we see who is willing to work and who is not.

You see, once the Euro would be history and the EU members were returning to their own currency, then German, British, American and Chinese investors would buy up your countries for pennies. That's what your new currencies will be worth, thus your country. With each strike you prove that your new currencies are worth less and less. The cheaper you could be bought up later.

Here in Germany a lot of people work for 7, sometimes less than 5 Euros an hour - before taxes and baring the high German costs of living! We have to work until 67 and we only get full pension when we have worked fulltime for 40 years... which rarely is the case. A lot of us die working.

We build (arguably) the best cars in the world, the best machinery, we go to work everyday, rain or shine. But if you show us you are not worth the effort, you will not be supported by us anymore, but you will be a competitor. Are you ready for this? You won't win that competition by striking and demanding more than you deserve.

(depending on where you live). Using anger and shame to motivate someone down on their luck is akin to pouring gasoline on fire. Leave psychology 101 for those who know how to use it and stick to what you are good at.
Also, a kind word here and there and a few words of sympathy works wonders for motivation.

I've worked in many countries and I have a degree in Energy Electronics. I was laid of 3 years ago and still can't find a job. A list of the countries I have worked in and a couple of times in many.

United States, Germany, Spain, France, Italy, Hungary, Australia, China, Ukraine, Netherlands, Belgium, South Africa, Tunisia, El Salvador, Mexico, Canada, Poland, Latvia, Lithuania, Ecuador, Romania.....

And yes I have children that I need to support how ever I can not do that due to corruption. Sometimes a total reset is needed to open the eyes of the corrupt.

MR D you have my respect sir, and I wish you luck finding a way out of your hole. Your career and field sounds progressive, how come it's slowed down? Corruption at which level has forced you out of work? Elaborate please

Have you ever lived in Portugal? How about Germany or somewhere else? Many times it isn't what you know, it is who you know that will determine if you even get a spot at the table. (depending on where you live). Using anger and shame to motivate someone down on their luck is akin to pouring gasoline on fire.

Thank you. I live in the United States of America. I worked, lived and received my degree in Germany. Since I moved back to the US I haven't been able to land a job because of a problem overseas (according to the companies that will not hire me).

why dont you address the REAL reason people are protesting? see the news this evening? they were burning the EU flag. THAT is the cause of the madness

coz theyre not ALL lazy are they? or are they? you seem to think so

is it ok that democracy is dead here? what about TPTB wanting a collective pay raise when everyone else has to buckle down again? do you believe that greece will ever be free of debt? and if not, was this really the fault of the 'lazy' people? etc etc etc

there are 101 questions or constructive points you could make, but no, you come along to criticise those people who are standing up for EVERYONE, even callous, clueless bints like yourself
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 27667491


I am only criticising attitude, this is not character assasination. Look out of your front window and the chances are you'll see some random act of anti-social behaviour, immigrants taking over the street and your local jobs market, go to Tescos and watch the armies of shoplifters. You and I might have our moans about the status quo but what the hell is that going to achieve? nada. I wont address the problems in Portugal because they're endemic in one way or another to every country in the world. We have our share of worries in the UK, and daily in Peru I see people either dying in the street or becomgin stinking rich vbecause they see the signs early. here or there it's all the same. I just want Mr Portugal to realise that screaming blue murder about policies that he, you or I can't possible ever hope to change, wont change his situation, only action will.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 27541002


ummm, what do you think the protest are? ACTION. Mr. Portugal is just relaying the information to us that the MSM won't. A vital job no doubt.
 Quoting: Mr. D 4603964


The protests are just piss in the wind and we all know that. Ask any Egyptian if Egypt changed much post-Mubarrak. As simplistic as this advice is, it works: Look after number 1 and your family, tend to your own home like a castle and keep and fortify your family in whatever ways you can...next thing you know everyone's doing the same thing and if even your single street changes for the better, then that's something you did without the assistance of the state. Getitng yourself arrested or injured in political protests isnt going to do any good at all, especially when the bastards behind closed doors are laughing at us all. Ignore the bastards, pretend they dont exist and they suddenly become less , much less important than they need to be.

LOL. Burying your head in the sand and pretending that they are not there is one of the reasons why things are the way they are and will only make matters worse. No, you have it all wrong. Protests have rocked many governments and Kingdom throughout history and will help now. (Look at the French Revolution as an example). Really, bury your head in the sand?.....
