I'm going to try this line.

From the squishy internationalist organ Foreign Policy comes this zinger:
"Ever since the initial bargain in the 1950s between post-Nazi West Germany and its wartime victims, European integration has been built on compromise. So there is huge pressure on Greece’s new Syriza government to be “good Europeans” and compromise on their demands for debt justice from their European partners — also known as creditors. But sometimes compromise is the wrong course of action. Sometimes you need to take a stand."
I'm going to have to try that one! I'm going to go to a really expensive restaurant, treat myself to all the good stuff on the menu, and when the waiter brings the check, I'm going to demand debt justice! Sometimes you need to take a stand! Paying the tab is the wrong course of action!
