No, he is not Spanish by birth. He was an American that moved to Spain. I am unsure if he changed nationalities. I know this because I remember the OP telling his story about life as a waiter, saving for a restaurant, and everyday things like that on a thread a few months back.
Are you a xenophobe or something? God forbid if foreigners come to Spain. God knows Spanish people have went to other parts of the world.....to put it mildly......seek their fortune. Why don't you give the man a break.
Congratulations on your success OP. Both in creating a business and holding of the mob of people. I wish you the best of luck in future encounters with them. I have a feeling you'll need it.
the problem with lashing out is that they never go after the wealthy at their own residences,
What I find telling is that with the first mention of a difference of opinion as mentioned in the OP an American says, "Keep Your Gun Handy".... The OP seemed to handle himself quite well, him being brave and not hiding behind the barrel of a gun like a coward.

Thats funny,a guy from Britain bitching about a "mentality" that the OP,from Spain,who, clearly, emulated in speech and my attitudes as well (Guess where I'm from) at the mention of a gun.....how telling.
Good job OP I knew there was a reason we killed all those commies(Gonna jump me for that one to aren't cha?)
I am worried about the world these days.

I think its about time the people stood up to protest and riot against the corrupt elite that are ruining their country just as they are ruining the US and other western nations. We should follow their lead
Even though protesters form a heterogeneous and ambiguous group, they share a strong rejection of unemployment, welfare cuts, Spanish politicians, the current two-party system in Spain between the Spanish Socialist Workers' Party and the People's Party, as well as the current political system, capitalism, banks and bankers, political corruption and firmly support what they call basic rights: home, work, culture, health and education.
Against the bankers and political corruption? Lost hope in the two party system? Sounds like what any ATS member would want, but you OP seems to be all for the bankers and corruption, because you're a right wing capitalist. It's no surprise you view things this way, being a business owner and all, you have something in common with the ruling elite, so you tend to support them.
