Mad as Hell!

Την «εμπροσθοβαρή καταβολή των κοινοτικών πόρων» με στόχο την τόνωση της ανάπτυξης στην Ελλάδα, παράλληλα όμως με το πρόγραμμα δημοσιονομικής εξυγίανσης, πρότεινε την Τρίτη ο πρόεδρος της Κομισιόν Ζοζέ Μαουέλ Μπαρόζο. Την ίδια ώρα, η Γερμανίδα καγκελάριος, παρότι δηλώνει αισιόδοξη για την επίλυση της κρίσης χρέους της Ελλάδας, καλεί την Αθήνα να επιβάλει περισσότερα μέτρα λιτότητας. «Μονόδρομος» είναι η ψήφιση του μεσοπρόθεσμου προγράμματος για την Ελλάδα, σύμφωνα με τον πρόεδρος της ΕΕ Χέρμαν Βαν Ρομπάϊ, καθώς όλες οι υπόλοιπες εναλλακτικές λύσεις είναι «αποκρουστικές».

Η παρακατω σκηνη ειναι απο την ταινια Network(1976)

I don't have to tell you things are bad. Everybody knows things are bad. It's a depression. Everybody's out of work or scared of losing their job. The dollar buys a nickel's worth, banks are going bust, shopkeepers keep a gun under the counter. Punks are running wild in the street and there's nobody anywhere who seems to know what to do, and there's no end to it. We know the air is unfit to breathe and our food is unfit to eat, and we sit watching our TV's while some local newscaster tells us that today we had fifteen homicides and sixty-three violent crimes, as if that's the way it's supposed to be. We know things are bad - worse than bad. They're crazy. It's like everything everywhere is going crazy, so we don't go out anymore. We sit in the house, and slowly the world we are living in is getting smaller, and all we say is, 'Please, at least leave us alone in our living rooms. Let me have my toaster and my TV and my steel-belted radials and I won't say anything. Just leave us alone.' Well, I'm not gonna leave you alone. I want you to get mad! I don't want you to protest. I don't want you to riot - I don't want you to write to your congressman because I wouldn't know what to tell you to write. I don't know what to do about the depression and the inflation and the Russians and the crime in the street. All I know is that first you've got to get mad. You've got to say, 'I'm a HUMAN BEING, God damn it! My life has VALUE!' So I want you to get up now. I want all of you to get up out of your chairs. I want you to get up right now and go to the window. Open it, and stick your head out, and yell, 'I'M AS MAD AS HELL, AND I'M NOT GOING TO TAKE THIS ANYMORE!'
