Young people can have such depth. I would spit on them before kicking them in the teeth so that they understand their anger is of little consequence to the world, but that would probably just enrage them. If they riot in June when it gets hot and right smack in the peak tourist season, Greece will spiral into a free fall. The people of Greece will probably never admit that it was they and not the politicians who spent and benefited from the money.

If you are angry at yourself, what can you do to get away from it all?

At a time when Greece needs to work hard to get its house in order, the unions call for a strike. Do you think that there will be more violence on May 20th? The real show will only start when the austerity measures kick in.

That's the danger of the "entitlement mentality" that man cultures encourage.

Life owes you nothing, and if society is going to promise something, you can't count on it being there unless the system that provides it is perpetually sustainable.

That's what's happening here in the USA. Bring up a generation where most everything they want or need has always been there for them, and what will happen when it's taken away.

It's not totally wrong for a person taught to expect a safety net to always be there to get mad when they discover it is a lie, but at the same time, an intelligent person should never believe everything they are told without doing their own research.

I wonder if this budget cut will push California’s Hispanic community over the edge. After the Arizona immigration law, the Californian cuts may simply be too much to bear.

The ongoing political saga in California has created much of the preconditions for civil unrest. No matter what actually happens it is a certainty that hundreds of thousands of predominantly young Latino kids are going to be either thrown onto the streets or squeezed out of overcrowded classrooms. During these times of economic distress, the Californian Legislature is adamant about not raising taxes to fill a $25 billion hole in the FY 2010 Budget. Without additional revenue, the only other alternative is to cut spending. And the biggest item on the chopping block is expenditure on education for kids in poorer districts. As another wave of foreclosures sweep through the country and more families are forced into homelessness, the country may be forced over the tipping point.

What will you do when the riots start?


If they want to start a war let them. They'll lose.

Because legal citizen are sick of what they're doing to our country. This is tantamount to having someone walk into your home uninvited, then eat all your food, watch your television, sleep in your bed, then has the gull to complain when you finally have enough and ask them to kindly leave. Arizona is "kindly asking them to leave" after years of "having enough." The alternative is send border enforcement squads but I don't want that!

Before you jump up and down in protest ask yourself this, would you be willing to remove the front door from your home and let anyone walk into your home and do whatever they want?

Yeah, didn't think so.

The war started a long time ago, and if you did not know it, the burritos are not losing. The sexicans breed faster and have bigger families. The chicos gangsters have been milking the coke cow for decades and they have recently moved aggressively into black tar. They not only have large reserves of liquid wealth, they also have numerous willing recruits who will do practically anything to get a taste of the high life. Take a look at a map and tell me if you think that it is possible to secure the America-Mexico border against border bunnies? Once in, a leaf-blower is a leaf-blower. You cannot tell who is legal and who is not because they all look the same. I mean do you really think that you can tell the difference between a fruit picker, a garden gnome and a chili shitter? It has gotten to the point that without the tacos, there will be no Chinese food in America. Practically every kitchen is staffed by sanchez. But you know, the spics work harder for less and that alone should earn them some respect. If anything, America needs more and not less of these hardworking people. The white guy who turns his nose up at a job that pays $25,000 a year is a sad anachronism of a bygone era.

Where are the riots bubbah? Mostly in the third world savage countries. Occasionally the left wingers have a gang bang against the Global Economy but that is short lived and of no effect in the long run.
