Portugal faces a parliamentary vote against its deficit- cutting plan that may push the country toward a European Union bailout...The European dream favored the who in favor of the what now? What was that you said? It sounded like the natives are growing restless because the rich are getting too many benefits at the expense of the poor. Here, let me read that again ... yep, that's what it said.
“A seismic shift in attitudes is taking place across Europe,” Bill Blain, a strategist at Newedge Group in London, wrote in a research note. “In the face of growing resentment across the continent for a European dream that seems inordinately in favor of the few rather than the many, Europe’s elites may be wise to glance across the Mediterranean for a reminder of what happens when the people say enough is enough.”
Well, maybe they're right. Maybe the system of cradle-to-grave social safety has helped the rich are get richer. Or maybe it's been helping the poor stagnate as wards of the state. Whatever. It's broke now because the number of Euros they spend is more than the number of Euros they earn. Subtraction is tryanny. There's only one thing left to do.
