Socialism's Nightmare In Greece

"The trouble with Socialism is that eventually you run out of other people's money"

PM Margaret Thatcher, 5 Feb. 1976, This Week on Thames Television

What could possibly be worse for socialists than taking over a country that has already run out of other people's money? I'm not sure, but you could ask the newly elected left wing Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras of Greece. His happy talk during the election of feta cheese in every pot and ouzo on everyone's lips has already met the reality of needing to borrow other people's money, and the lenders don't have any intention of paying for Greece's free ride.
