Typical consolidated socialist filth of the gutter rabble. Here is the reality: Your socialist countries need to sell their bonds (i.e. debt). The actual private sector will not touch those bonds unless paid a king's ransom in interest secondary to the full knowledge that the funds generated from those debt sales will be squandered on coddling your useless hides rather than on something the will generate actual private sector productivity (the actual private sector... the 'thing' that you and your useless regimes parasitize upon). Supranational entities will provide a bailout but the countries providing the funding have their own socialist rabble to coddle at home and will not be in the mood to coddle you. That even the smallest modicum of so-called 'austerity' results in a drop in the GDP of your socialist countries only goes to show how deep-rooted the socialism has become.Police and protesters clashed in Spain on Wednesday as millions of workers went on strike across Europe to protest spending cuts they say have made the economic crisis worse.
