What is Wrong with You People!

To the Editor,

The National Herald June 27-July 3rd edition had on its front page an illegal immigrant (called refuge) protesting for more illegal immigrants to Greece. Your newspaper underneath his picture wrote: “A lone protester with a sign speaks as loudly as a throng in support of refuge rights” Wow!!! Wow!!! What is wrong with you people? How about Greek people’s rights? Does your newspaper acknowledge and or do anything about the fact that due to the bad management by the Greek government since 1981 Greece is in a crisis not dissimilar during the Turkish occupation? Does, your newspaper fight for Greek’s rights? Do you people know that: A) A lot of Greeks are going hungry, while the government is giving money to illegal immigrants? B) Due to heavy regulations you cannot make any money in Greece no matter your business? And if you make any money, the government will take it via excessive taxes. Ask any businessman there. C) Able Greeks who can, leave the country by droves and only the less able remain. What kind of country will be left? Your newspaper was instrumental in helping all these socialistic governments in Greece over the last 40 years and look at the results. Greek-American organizations are in disarray. None of them are effective in anything since they have no voting members. Most of them are ‘Mitsos clubs’. It is as if a suicidal curse has come over us and we decided to give up on our heritage and our Patrida, Greece. I do not know what else to say.

To the Editor: After reading a Letter to the Editor here entitled “Visiting Greece Is More Expensive This Year” (June 18), with the writer being from New York City, my personal experience is totally reversed.
