American store owners, shop keepers, and home owners are allowed to have guns.

Rioting in an American city is extremely risky business.

So you don't know what austerity means also? I looked it up but that didn't help. They are protesting WHAT?

I hope they don't spread across the channel, or we'll be seeing Tories in parliament for a very long time again.

I only read the first page of this thread, but thought I'd mention.
I was thinking only last night about how these protests are barely mentioned in the media here in the uk.
Our austerity measures haven't been applied yet and it seems obvious they don't want protests to catch on here.
I really only see reports ofthis on rtv.
I suppose in the long run these protests will have no effect.

We are helpless really.

God bless the Europeans who are leading the way for middle class survival against conservative type policies that want to go back to serfdom like the republican tea party in America will lead this country
THAT IS IF WE DON’T GET OFF OUR BUTS AND DO LIKE THEY DO IN EUROPE!
GO EUROPEANS

Keep in mind this is a PROGRESSIVE fight in Europe. These people aren’t taking the conservative [ love the rich and screw the middle class and poor] like the Republican conservative [ fake libertarian] nonsense of Sarah Palin and the Tea party who ARE ONLY DUPES for the rich who want to bring us back to the eighteenth century.

They [ The Europeans] want to keep their gains such as national health care; retirement at 60 in some cases, and a decent wage.

Here in America WE HAVE SURRENDERED and are going backwards.

Abolishing social security is now a mainstream talking point

The unions in America are quickly dying

Middle class jobs are going away

the Infrastructure is dying

Just today the senate led by Republicans stopped a bill that would have brought jobs outsourced to China and India by US corporations, back to the US

The Republican ALL OF THEM VOTED AGAINST BRINGING JOBS BACK TO THE US WITH THE HELP OF BLUE DOG DEMOCRATS!

Plenty of American protesters in 'Atlas shrugs' An American blog run by a New York lady.

The European response to a world in turmoil may be somewhat different than that in America, Asia, or elsewhere, but the underlying causes are perhaps similar across the developed world and elsewhere: soaring unemployment and equality; populaces groaning under taxes being asked to shoulder more for bailots, "recovery plans," and rapidly aging societies; fears about the future, job security, and reitrement; the decay of the traditional European welfare state under the weight of debt and shady finance; the hollowing-out of manufacturing and, indeed, other industries. Toss in a piquant dash of tension over immigration, fears of a one-world government, and bruised nationalisms of various sorts and you have a potent cocktail indeed.

HG Wells said it right...

“Countless millions will protest against the New World Order, and will die fighting it.”
- HG Wells, The New World Order

And Europe fell for this trap, and the US was well on its way too:

"National Socialism will use its own revolution for establishing of a new world order."
- Adolf Hitler during World War II

"The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism. But under the name of "liberalism" they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program, until one day America will be a Socialist nation, without knowing how it happened."
- Norman Thomas, for many years U.S. Socialist Presidential candidate.

First and foremost I am not a Demican, or a Republicrat, I am a Libertarian.

Secondly, Sarah Palin did not start the Tea party, Ron Paul
and his followers did that.

They used to make fun of it, til it started winning elections.

Sarah Palin and the Republicrats are just trying to hijack the movement.

Some of the candidates the RINO party wanted got the boot in the backside,
not saying the ones that won are a whole lot better thou.

As Carlin would have said, garbage in, garbage out.

We can solve all the countries problems in 7 EASY steps.

1) 700+ bases in 130+ countries comes to an end forever.

We are not suppose to be policeman of the world, and the world
is sick of it and even ar former general spoke about this and
condemned it.



2) The trade deficit could be massively reduced by ending imported oil slowly
over a few decades by bringing online Vertical Hydroponic algae oil til we
get the infrastructure in place to switch to biological hydrogen.

Best of all it can be done on unused desert land here in the US.



en.wikipedia.org...

3) Free ride welfare comes to an end, if you get it, you now work for the government,
if you got kids you either work at the childcare facility or one of the jobs fixing
all the messes left in the wake of the last few decades.

The top two costs are military and welfare, and popping out babies
for a paycheck is no longer a career path the rest of us are willing to pay for.

As President Lincoln said, a hand up, not a hand out.

4) Food stamps transitioned to community gardens like the have in Europe.

5) Zero balance the stock market, pay back all the money in it, and
close it down world wide as a giant numbers racket that used to be illegal.

All forms of control over it for the last several decades have failed because
the money manipulators simply bribe the government and everyone else.

Its fundamentally corrupt, and a good deal to blame for the coming derivatives
crash of $1,500 Trillion dollars which is more money than even exists.

6) REAL job refrom, All jobs shipped overseas are brought home, and all corporate welfare comes to
and end, and the status of a corporation as a person comes to an end for all time.

All corporate law is revamped and the board members are not longer immune to
prosecution and act of horror like bhopal are FULLY punishable under the law.

en.wikipedia.org...

Exporting pollution and law breaking to other countries to then sell the products
here is merely off shoring your crime.

Temp agencies, and contract companies skimming workers wages for shuffling paper
comes to and end and workers work direct for their actual employers.

The fat cat middle men sucking away ppls pay needs to come to an end.

7) All government/corporate officials involved in controversy have to give testimony and
they do it hooked up to this device which has freed ppl from prison and is
admissible in court and more accurate than polygraph.

www.brainwavescience.com...

These 7 would fix most of the countries problems, but odds are it will never happen
for obvious reasons due to the NWO.

Actually, it is under the con job of the right wing communist concept of the "Free Market" that has fooled the masses in supporting an ideology that strips them of their wealth and their liberties.

It is a two party punch against the people in the U.S.. See my signature. The so called liberal democrats are even bigger control freaks than the republicans, and they want to regulate every right of the individual out of existence. The free market communists are only happy to go along with these pursuits.

If we are to start protesting here in the U.S., we should start in Martha's Vineyard, The South Hamptons, Hillsboro, Beverly Hills, and on and on.

Robespierre baby!

Hello!!!!!!!!! It's not that bad here in America. We are just so spoiled that if we can't buy a Big Mac then throw the bums out.

We need to wake the heck up. My life and your life is too short for petty differences. What's important is making sure this world exist for future generations. And it won't exist if we allow the elite to just run amok.

How is it that so many people from completely different countries can all feel so similar about the world's problems and take action that expresses it, while Americans, who have been hit so hard on so many fronts recently, still remain placid and docile for the most part?


It's quite simple, US americans have things a lot better than Euroland folk do, hence they have less to complain about

That is because Americans are lazy, eat to much which makes them overweight and contributes to the overall laziness, and have their head in the sand. I see it everyday being an American myself.

They would rather sit at home and watch American Idol or Dancing With The Stars then go out and do something that matters like protest.

Jeezze protest, ohhhhhhh man hand me a cheeseburger and turn on Pawn Stars I will protest later.

Until there is a full fledged economic meltdown of epic proportion and everyone of middle class and lower looses damn near everything we will continue to eat our McDonald's, Burger King, Jack In The Box, Sonic, etc.... While the our country crumbles from the inside out.

World Wide Meltdown Be Damned, we need our fast food and reality TV.

Home Front Meltdown be damned, we need our Simon Cowell and our Britney Spears and our Lindsay Lohan

TPTB removed our elected leaders and installed a dictator... Pfttttttttt, who cares. i just hope they do not stop production on the new season of House MD

To me what is really bull kaka is that, really nothing is that bad wrong, the problem is that the people in control, are controling and fooling everyone on the planet.
There is plenty of work that needs to be do, there are plenty of people who will do the work, there is plenty of people who want things will work to buy things, but those in control have different plans, or the other possibility is that the world is being run by a bunch of idiots, morons, what ever you want to call them.
No wonder the people are getting mad, I 'm not surprised them have not stated to kill these fools that have mucked things up so bad.

Don't worry in another 10 years things will be booming, but maybe not all the right ways.

Aren't these all of the countries that bankrupted themselves with social programs and allowing people to retire at age 55 with full pay and benefits? Aren't these the countries that caused the euro to dive to all time lows and are now addingvmorevdebt to the system for imminent collapse?

Yes they are.

As stated during the French revolution, you can't have your cake, and eat it too. But they are trying!
