    Dont you remember all trillions the US handed out as corporate welfare to the banksters who caused the crisis in the first place? You seem to approve of socialistic welfare for the RICH only - you do realise what sort of person that makes you?

    Jesus was a socialist and he was supposedly the son of god - surely you are not suggesting that Christ supports capitalism

    Thanks for your endorsement

    I didnt think you would be capable of mounting an honest counter argument

    But then again, its always difficult to argue against the truth itsnt it folks

    (you even dispute the nationalising of the US auto industry with tax payers money - at one point the US government was the major shareholder of GM - wonderful US corporate capitalism at its best - for all to see and laugh at)

    To say that you have failed to address any of the facts I raised would be an understatement.
    "The necessaries of life occasion the great expense of the poor. They find it difficult to get food, and the greater part of their little revenue is spent in getting it. The luxuries and vanities of life occasion the principal expense of the rich, and a magnificent house embellishes and sets off to the best advantage all the other luxuries and vanities which they possess. ... It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion."

    Always important to keep in mind that there is no way for honest American Conservative posters to know who is behind the names and avatars on here.

    The rabid enemies of the American way around the world are on here with the Obama supporters, all disguised and hiding behind the names and avatars that they want you to see. Many attempt to gain credibility and legitimacy by using historical American names and quotes they find or create, while they rail against the country and people that they hate so much and have done so much to destroy.

    One thing that they all learned in the last election was that nothing they say has to make the slightest bit of sense. They can post absolute nonsense, making it appear that there actually are supporters of nonsense and they will not be questioned. They find agreement from the rabid Obama supporters who focus and vote entirely on their own personal agendas. As Obama said, they want revenge against you for their own failure, rage and hate.

    There is no point in responding to these sorts of people and legitimizing them with a serious response to their nonsense and hate. Think about who they are and what their real agenda is because they are not going to reveal it to you.

    Well well well, look what we have here - the German and French workers are lagging behind - they dont seem to be putting in their fair share of work hours compared to everyone else. Even the workers in the USA are working harder than the Germans and French

    Always beware of what the spin doctors throw at you in the mass media - obviously they are painting a picture of lazy Greeks, Irish, Italians and Spaniards etc whilst heralding the work ethic of the classic German and French worker. Looks like they are trying to disguise what the REAL problem is in some of these countries. We all know what that is dont we.

    The falsity of that chart is how many Greeks don't work at all.

    Isn't socialism wonderful. All those meaningless promises that create misery for the masses.

    Electing idiots who make moronic promises... eventually has consequences.

    The only thing these moochers are doing by rioting is hurting their image and making them look like ungrateful spoiled ****s.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    The Germans are funding this mess, and Merkel is greeted with Nazi signs in Portugal... Greece... Italy has acted in a similar manner.

    But hey.... the Germans believe in Sozialmarktwirtschaft... now they can spread their wealth around with little accountability at the other end.

    I addressed the only real issue here: the unwillingness of the left to recognize the collapse of the welfare state in Western Europe. The experiment in socialism or social democracy or whatever you want to call it, has led to bankruptcy. The rioting and social unrest will only increase as the ever increasing debt brings about the necessity for ever deeper and deeper cuts into the handouts to which the Europeans have grown accustomed. The same thing will happen here. It is only a matter of time. Unless, of course, the left wakes up and recognizes that there are no limits to what the state can promise, but clear limits upon what it can deliver.
