    Comparing to Greeks' debt crisis...
    :confused:
    Is the U.S. like Greece?

    A whopping 51% of the population of Greece work for the government. They get entitlements from the cradle to the cript--and oddly enough it's the youth in Greece that are rioting over there. 3 people dead today.

    They just don't seem to get that their government can no longer afford all of the hand-outs. Socialism at it's best example--and it has failed. Socialism has never worked--and unfortunately--with Obama in office--along with democrats--whom have an insatiable appetite to grow and expand the scope and power of government--we are not far behind Greece.

    "The problem with socialism is that government eventually runs out of other peoples money to spend:--Margaret Thatcher.
