Mad and Madder

Subject: txt sclm bdd vals econ -
If a people base their societal model on non-work, their society will eventually fall apart. It cannot be otherwise

Said one [Spanish] outraged protestor:

We are very angry because this is not only an attack to our rights and to our salaries that there is an attack to the welfare. This is an attack to all the public services.

Like the Greeks, the Spaniards too do not like the idea of spending cuts and demand that their government keep giving them money. The problem is that the Spanish government does not have any money. It only has debts.

We used to mock Europe's spend-happy socialists. In recent years, however, we have been spending so much that Europeans now seem responsible in comparison.

If you still think they are mad, then we must be madder still...
