How spoiled nations throw tantrums

Europe Crisis Deepens As Chaos Grips Greece -

At the same time, tens of thousands of protesters marched through Athens in the largest and most violent protests since the country's budget crisis began last fall. Angry youths rampaged through the center of Athens, torching several businesses and vehicles and smashing shop windows. Protesters and police clashed in front of parliament and fought running street battles around the city.

Witnesses said hooded protesters smashed the front window of Marfin Bank in central Athens and hurled a Molotov cocktail inside. The three victims died from asphyxiation from smoke inhalation, the Athens coroner's office said. Four others were seriously injured there, fire department officials said.

Comments: When socialists get into financial trouble do they cut back, budget, and put their noses to the grindstone? Nope, they riot and refuse to give up anything. This is humanity at work and not nationality specific. Maybe your definition of "socialist" does not fit perfectly so you flop around and cry foul about calling Europe socialist. You might say you lived in Soviet Russia and know all about socialism and this or that is not socialist. If big government is handing out, controlling or otherwise in charge of your income, benefits or sustenance, then you are socialist, plain and simple. Please, call it anything you wish. A shark is a fish and a piranha is a fish, they are both fish. One is big, one is small, they both eat you.
