    No police officer in Greece or Britain should be able to catch a wink of sleep until these measures are overturned, the protests should be so constant and unruly. Riots, if necessary.

    We've seen it with our own civil rights movement. The only way to force change is to make people afraid of you.

    I mean forcing the rich to pay for their own mistakes.

    That make me think of the man who murdered Theo Van Gogh. Violence can be used to make people afraid of you so that they don't do things you dislike. It's a form of behavior modification. Is that what you mean?

    Mohammed Bouyeri is a murderer and a thug who belongs to the 10th century or the 14th. I'm not talking about murder.

    Otherwise, violent protest is a form of behavior modification.

    This.
    In a nutshell.

    In UK, we Brits should expect nothing that isn't happening.
    Conservatives are renowned for not giving two ****s about those who are not wealthy and punishing the most vulnerable in our society and protecting the rich. It is what makes Conservatives Tories

    Greece screwed up by taxing the bejesus out of the rich to support the poor. Result? Incredible amount of tax cheating by the rich....
    Tax collectors resorted to satellite pics to count the pools the rich have, and noted that some of the rich claimed income that was less than their utility bills...

    Well, at least part of it was on vacation in your area there in Spain. Beautiful area. Too bad it was littered on the way into town with tent cities, and while getting dinner at night littered with begging children.

    You know Pete, best you don't throw stones while your own glass house sits on the edge of the cliff, and we in the us are feeding you aid.

    (AP) Fitch Ratings cut Spain's credit rating on Friday, saying the government's efforts to reduce debt will weigh on economic growth in coming months - another blow to Prime Minister Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero's efforts to shore up confidence in state finances.

    The ratings agency cut the country's rating one notch from AAA to AA plus, saying Zapatero's efforts to close the budget deficit "will materially reduce the rate of growth of the Spanish economy over the medium term."

    The ratings agency decision echoes concerns from economists that efforts to cut state debt will also withdraw stimulus from the economy and hinder growth. Lower growth in turn means gathering less in tax revenues.

    Spain currently has an unemployment rate of 20 percent and is struggling with large deficits and the hangover from a collapsed housing and real estate boom like that in the U.S.
