This is Spain Tonight. http://www.businessinsider.com/spanis... Spain is broke. The people don't like austerity. But they allowed it to happen with their voting choices and nonchalance. Austerity hasn't even happened yet. Spain must beg the ECB, IMF for money. That will bring in the Troika. The Troika will enforce some real austerity. The people will really NOT like the Troika. When this happens in Italy it will be even more fascinating. Next up France. Japan somewhere in between. Kicking the can, extending and pretending, can only last so long. We are witnessing a global shift in the balance of economic power around the globe.
It will happen here too. Americans will show the rest of the world how to protest. If I was an inner city cop in the US, I would seriously be looking at a career change or transfer. 50 million Americans losing their SNAP cards, unemployment, and SS benefits won't be conducting a "sit in". There are millions of guns in America and these people already aren't fond of law enforcement. I suspect there will be a few million seniors protesting as well. SS & Medicare are unsustainable in their current form.
