Quit your bitchin and whining and do something about it. Of all places to start a business you go to Spain???? WTF?! If you wanted to start a business NY is where you should have originally done that. Yeah costs were cheaper in Spain and the girls are hot there, but seriously you cannot make a good living in Spain unless you deal with the cartels and drug dealers
That said, go back home to the US, and work like heck. You have to. You will not win the powerball lottery. Military leads to potential death and unemployment when you get back from service abroad. Might as well find friends that can help you establish your cafe here and reward them for doing so when you are doing well in the future. Forget all of the crap that is going on which is outside your control anyways and take control of your life instead.
That's all I have to say. Best of luck in all your endeavours.edit on 2-8-2012 by Skywatcher2011 because: (no reason given)
What effect has the Libor scandal had on global financial markets, and what are potential repercussions?
"It distorts trust in the marketplace if you can't trust the rates at which banks are lending to one another," says Thomas Cooley of New York University's Stern School of Business. The Wall Street Journal's Franceso Guerrera notes that Libor manipulation meant "trillions of dollars of financial instruments were priced at the wrong rate--a fact that could do wonders for plaintiffs' lawyers while undermining investors' confidence in financial markets." Indeed, securities broker and investment bank Keefe, Bruyette & Woods estimates that the banks being investigated for Libor manipulation could end up paying an approximate total of $35 billion in civil legal settlements, separate from any payments to regulators. "Relative to the size of the sixteen banks at risk of lawsuits in the Libor scandal, $35 billion is chump change. But it will be another blow to the banks' ability to hold enough capital to satisfy higher regulatory requirements in the wake of the financial crisis," notes the Huffington Post's Mark Gongloff.

It sucks man. I live in the Alicante area of Spain but am originally from England, but I too no longer see it as a home to go back too, but lately Spain is so bad and expensive that I'm losing my house and business also and noone in the government will do a thing to help. What's more, they hinder.
Chin up my friend and ride out the storm because this year will end on a higher note if everyone just wakes up and stops giving the corrupt bastards money for a debt that they themselves have created. We have the tools to create a whole new system, but until we all stand up against the old one and stop giving them a cent, the window of opportunity will be lost.
