Spanish Gen-Y Protest, Demand More Leprechauns

... or whatever the Spanish equivalent of a leprechaun is. Dig this.

Unemployment is at 45% for these guys. They're demanding more jobs and more government spending. Umm, massive government spending is what they had been doing and it resulted in high unemployment like it always does. Logically, doing more of what you've been doing to get into the mess would seem to be a bad idea.

It's a sad sight to see. They're good people. They want to work. They want to be productive. Unfortunately, they've been brought up completely ignorant of where money comes from. Someone has done these folks a very great disservice.

The unfortunate difference between them and US is that our throngs of uniformed that may become protestors do not want to work. They just want handouts from the government to live an upper middle class lifestyle.

"our throngs of uniformed that may become protestors do not want to work."

That's quite a sweeping statement. Got any actual evidence to back it up? The few people I've met who are on any sort of public assistance are embarrassed about it, and would prefer to have actual jobs.
