The barbarians used to be *outside* the gates…

But no longer.

Greek protestors (probably more of those “anarchists“) are so against the idea of budget cuts that they’ve rioted; the unions are against what the government is doing with the power system, and so there will be blackouts.

I hope they like living without modern conveniences.

Like the saying goes, “The problem with socialism is that eventually you run out of other people’s money.”

The Greeks have run out.

I don’t think this new “austere” budget is actually going to accomplish anything; I think they’re going to continue their profligate spending (just like they did months ago after they passed the last “austerity” measures). They only went through the motions so that the IMF and EU would reinfuse them with cash.
