  •  European social democracy (0+ / 0-)

    is being sacrificed for banks.  Not a good trade-off at all.  I easily can see some of those legal measures being enacted here, and under a Democratic administration.

    I spent considerable time in Colombia a couple of years ago and the main Bogotá paper ran a story about Colombian emigrants to Spain, some of whom were choosing to return to Colombia.  When I was in Spain in 2010, I saw a homemade banner draped from a balcony saying "España se hunde" ("Spain is sinking"). Would that banner even be legal today?

    When you see some of the choices being made by democratic countries, it's fair to ask whether democracy is over.

    A terrible beauty is born. --W.B. Yeats
