3 die in Athens riot over cutbacks, debt crisis and UNIONS
Liberal/Union Protesters chant anti government slogans outside the Greek Parliament Athens, Wednesday, May 5, 2010. Protesters tried to storm Greece's parliament and hurled paving stones at police, who responded with tear gas Wednesday as tens of thousands of outraged Greeks took to the streets to protest harsh new spending cuts aimed at saving their country from bankruptcy. The banner reads: "The 'haves' should pay for the crisis - Thieves, crooks, despoilers". This is alarming. We need to know that the Democrats are taking us on the same path that Europe is on. If Greece fails we are into them for 17.1% of their debt. Greece and Europe could take us down economically because they made bad financial decisions and they gave the unions everything they ever wanted. Now those unions are willing to destroy the tax payers property in order to get what they want. Doesn't it sound like SEIU all grown up? It is!
