Defining Greece Today ...

What Word Comes To Mind When You Think Of Greece ?

The ranters over on Monroe Rising characterized it as an act bordering on treason when Dan Maloney referred to Greece as "a laughingstock" given all the recent scandals, corruption and other bad news headlines.

So I'm wondering ...
How would YOU characterize Greece in a word or two?

Out of necessity, Comment Moderation is enacted. You may explain your choice of word and what makes it fitting, but I will not tolerate the name-calling and other juvenile behavior displayed on here a couple of nights ago. If you want your opinion to count (AKA  - see the light of day!), keep it civil !

Corruption. No explanation necessary. Maloney is correct. I hear it everywhere I go. Even the cashiers make remarks when they see that you are from Greece. Damned shame.

Communism. Just watch a town board meeting and you'll know why.

Which cashiers? How do they know you are from Greece?
Is it the stores that ask what your zip code is?
My word for greece is "ashamed"

When you write a check, they look at your DL. Maybe that's how they know.

Apathetic was the best one so far. That person is so right about people wanting to complain or play victim and not want to fix the problems they whine about.

Or how about SCARY?

Or COMEDY CENTRAL????

2:55 who in the world writes a check at a retail store anymore? Coffee

Coffee ~~ I see it rather frequently, especially at Tops. Usually older people who don't trust debit cards and would never consider putting groceries on the credit card.

All of the above, especially complacent. Instead of whining, do something! Vote all the bums out in November and help those who are trying to change the idiocy that goes on in this Town, those who are trying to bring some respect to Greece. IT CAN BE DONE if everyone will get off their duffs and go to the voting booths on November 3.

I'll quote a 92 year old man I visited last week:

"What the hell kind of show are they runnin' there?"

To my readers ~~ there's quite the spectrum of defining terms you've written here! And I'm happy to say I didn't have to "reject" any that were suggested :)

I think I may take several of the most descriptive (IMHO) and put them in a poll to come up with the top one or two. The two that really strike a chord with me so far are "complacent" and "home."
