The citizens of Cyprus thought everything was hunky-dory too until yesterday. Didn't have a clue they'd be taking to the streets just two days ago.

How many countries does that make in Europe whose citizens have taken to the streets because the government has run out of THEIR money?

And why is Obama so insistent on taking us down this same path?

Finally a wish may be coming true. WalMart is set to build a Neighborhood Market less than a mile from my home. This will allow me to finally buy that golf cart for shopping, going to 7-11, or fast food. I am looking forward to this. The Fresh Pride that was there before was a horrible store. Bad food, high prices, and terrible employees. I drove another mile even if just for one thing.

There are folks that are writing here and that particular one is doing as you say she may.

Obama?

Sharon Bowles, who chairs the European Parliament's Economic and Monetary Affairs Committee is appalled. "This grabbing of ordinary depositors's money is billed as a tax," she said, "so as to try and circumvent the EU's deposit guarantee laws. It robs smaller investors of the protection they were promised."

The EU has a poor record in predicting the consequences of its bailouts. Time and again it has under-estimated the impact of austerity.

It's so symptomatic of the disease called liberalism. Those infected with the ideo-pathogen instinctively envision the most vicious possible scenario. Another problem is the disturbing number of you short fused time-bombs that carry out your fantasies of divine justice.

taking to the streets and freezing their asses off.

'Greece is facing a heating-oil crisis. With an economy that has contracted for five years and an unemployment rate at a record 25 percent, residents in northern Greece can't heat their homes. Kastoria hasn't received funds from the central government to warm schools and the mayor said he will close all 53 of them rather than let children freeze, a step already taken in a nearby town. Truckloads of wood are arriving from Bulgaria as families search for alternative fuels.

When temperatures fall below freezing, Tsitskos said, he rarely leaves the house. Other older residents spend their days at a senior center and cafes to save on heating costs, returning home only to sleep, he said.

Austerity measures have cut government salaries and benefits, raised the retirement age and reduced services.

What a load. You're describing rightwing authoritarians and religious fanatics. i.e. teabaggers.
You've got it all wrong dummy
