Re: Be glad you're not in Italy
It is a -sighn- of the times and it will get worst, far worst. What we are seeing is just the beginning.
This is a sound-bite of what is happening.
Spain has 40%+ unemployed, my boss has a factory in Spain, just last week he had to sack over half of the workforce and the unions are going batshit. 25% of the just over 20ies are unemployed. Some have taken to highway robbery, Italy is like you said, only irony, oh the irony people are looking the mafia for support and guidance.
People have started to starve in Greece.
The normally bland Belgians are taking to the streets.
Poland may become a new power in Europe, however they hate everybody else.
Austria and Hungary are at loggerheads
Checkei and Slovakia are at loggerheads
What used to be called Jugoslavia is again a powder-keg looking for a spark.
Seems England will leave the EU, rats leaving the sinking ship?
Germany is now in the position to dictate fiscal matters to the rest of the Euro states, France doesn`t like it but sigh, sigh what can they do?
The European far right has seen the light and is coming out of the closet, bad times to be a "Fiji" or a dark skinned person in some places.
A lot of people see the right as a counterbalance to a rising muslem fanatism, even worst time to b e muslem dark skinned person.
In some areas of the UK, France and Germany Sharia law is in practice.
As usual it will be the weak who will suffer hardest first, povety related deaths are set to reach a all time high, not seen since the century before last.
I live in Switzerland, the government has pegged the Frank to the Euro at 1:1.2 otherwise CHian exports would be just too expensive, the peg is set to rise to 1:1.3. As usual it is bloody johnny foreigner taking brad out of the mouths of honest CH Bürgers, google yourself SVP Plakate to see what I mean, bad times to be Ausländer.
Anti American feelings have just been taking steroids since your government has tried to strongarm CH into opening their databases. US threats include a visa for CH citizans visiting the US, so when you come and visit me for a ride in the alps you too may need a visa.
Damn! Stop the planet I wanna get off.
