Live Webcast From Biggest Spanish Protest Yet

Tyler Durden's picture




 

Last year video of Greek protests turning violent was enough to force Waddell & Reed to sell several thousand ES contracts which crashed the market. Will this year's catalyst be Spain (which may just be too big for the CDO known as the EFSF to bail out)? While the gatherings in Spain have been getting bigger (and judging by this live feed, the one tonight is the biggest yet), they have so far been peaceful. Yet with 21% unemployment, and according to some over half of youth without a job, just how long until someone decides to send a flaming Molotov cocktail at the riot police? Watch a live webcast from Spain below.

When the credit/debit cards stop producing food, you'll be woken up. Suddenly and violently. Remember, all the Europeans have submitted to the gungrabbers. Not here in America. You have no idea how violent this is going to be.

There has been a delay to the inevitable due to the fact that the foreclosed are living rent free, the unemployed collect for 99 weeks+ and the food stamp recipients are in record numbers. But.. the government can not feed all of us. I predict the breaking point to be spring-summer of 2013 when high unemployment, high foreclosures and end of benefits collide.

more importantly, what are the crowd waiting for?

i presume these are the usual public sector protestors. Ok yes the politicians have promised you cushy (totally unproductive) jobs for life funded by other peoples work (the private sector) with cushy holidays, unlimited healthcare and 5 star public pensions twice as generous as the people the politicians rob can afford themselves

so the public sector sheep gather in a flock to protest against the broken promises of politicians who are bankrupt, all out of other peoples money, all out of any more foreign debt... what do these sheep expect to fuking happen precisely??????

..they could at least start at the back of the cue behiind the more legitimate complaints of the private sector who pay for this cushy parasitical lifestyle to continue!

They expect that tomorrow they will be able to spend like it was today - afterall why not - money is free and they have jobs that they believe actually "produce" things (digging a ditch produces a lot of dirt for someone else to have to fill the ditch back in - makes perfect sense - full employment Keynes style).

What Zero Govt says is not too wide of the mark, man up junkers and say why you think he is wrong. The Public sector has been sold a lie, as have we all. The difference is that they want the lie to be continued and are in denial, believing that perhaps it can be sustained. The denial has not yet turned to anger but it might do......

It is daily becoming clearer that western democracy and economic stability has been thoroughly subverted. politics, government and financialisation are horribly entwined and corrupted.

I do not see how this can either be sustained or unwound without terrible hardship. I hope I am wrong, Ideas anybody........?

Does debt repudiation, a new hard currency, a flat 20% tax and a ballanced government budget appeal?

those that understand the situation have already prepared. the majority is working check to check (be it pay or welfare), when it's disrupted, time bomb. no peaceful anywhere, because of mass forced ignorance. they gonna be lookin for what they want.

met more than a few people with comprehensive looting plans for a city, anything falls, it's over, no marching on the square, strait kill and steal all the way.

the masses are too ignorant to be awakened as a whole, the rabbit hole they say, keep grasping at the walls as they fall, never able to get a hold.

there is too much they don't know to hold peace, it would take too long to just explain a fragment of the truth to them in the state they're in, and a starving man ain't gonna sit for that for long.

 

I'm pretty sure that even incremental devaluation won't be able to keep above riot threshold, but i'm not an expert professional future caller, so who knows, maybe the majority will be fine with their new normal.

so in answer to your question, no, that could never happen here.

The only hope they had was a federal government job. That's pretty much dead as the feds have stopped hiring. From what I hear, there could be a hiring freeze for up to 5 years until enough people retire to allow fresh blood in. There will likely be mass layoffs in defense, EPA, transportation, DHS and other departments that became bloated under Bush and Obama.

my friend's cousin whom has a masters in poli-sci (yes, worthless i know) has come here from Italy to be a busboy.  he reports that there is no hope at all among the young there.  they have totally given up and expect it to get worse.  they have given up on the future.

this is when people really start to get pissed.  something really could happen in euroland.  spain is in even worse shape.

remember, these young people's ambition in life was to be a bureaucrat, functionaire.  over there, the old folks have completely insulated themselves and locked out the young. they are forced to work contract jobs for minimum wage.  there is no job creation, if you create a private sector full time job, it is next to impossible to fire someone, even for gross incompetence.

the cradle to grave socialist dream is over.

these kids aren't getting their state job and they are PISSED.

Well, blaming the nearest boogieman sounds about equally reasonable, as blaming people without jobs for the lack of jobs. In that sense, you really aren't argueing that much better.... its so easy to point fingers at people and symptoms, instead of considering that the whole economic policy AND model is fucked..... but no, cannot say this - it would imply a lot of..... work.

Oh yes.... making them "motivated"..... i know how that turned out in germany. And it could only be implemented, because there was popular sentiment as yours....... the results we catastrophic, both from a social AND a free market perspective...... (short version: in germany, unemployed have no rights anymore. Employers can arbitrarily set contracts (as long as they do not conflict with law), demand whatever they want.... because unemployed here now must accept ANYTHING... and i really mean anything. And not just that, there are further insane laws that amount to arbitrary surveilance and losing the right to travel the country).

Thanks to people here with a sentiment as yours, unemployed here now indeed are literarily treated almost like slaves.

Thu, 05/19/2011 - 20:46 | 1294007 Rynak
Rynak's picture

My point is:

- The unemployment problem is not primarily caused by the unemployed, but instead by economic policies, models and technological advances

- That unemployment even is a problem (cash-drain) is idiotic, as soon as one does not take current morals and economic models as premise. Unemployment shouldn't be a problem - that it is a problem, is a model defect

- For a free market to function, among other things both parties of the trade need to be able to reject an offer. Once one party is forced to accept, the other party can set whatever conditions it wants. It even feels strange to even call this a "trade" or "negotiation" anymore.

- In the case of germany, the creation of those laws, and how they are applied, did/do not have the purpose of reducing unemployment. They mainly have the purpose of reducing wages and to deny unemployed benefits via terrorization and criminalization (the buerocratic procedures in many cases are designed for people to make mistakes).

So, the situation in germany simply is, that a moral appeal to greed and envy is used, to justify laws which's main purpose is reducing employee's lifestandard and rights. Finally, the overall treatment of unemployed is not designed to encourage and help them finding a good permanent job, but instead designed to bash and terrorize them, so that they out of desperation, stress and fear either stop requesting benefits, or accept any temporary job under any conditions. But since there are not enough jobs anyways, the result simply has been an escalation in power-bias between employer and employee.

P.S.: One ironic aspect of the situation in germany, is that the consequences of the above program, are in some ways even disadvantageous to employers. For example, most employers have stopped using the relevant institutions to find employees, because they get drowned in a giant mountain of useless applications (caused by unemployed being forced and pushed to write applications for any job-offer, regardless how inappropriate).

What's wrong is the current economic paradigm.  Time to think out of the box.

Private Sector productivity is so high that government have to "create" fake or semi-fake jobs.  People need food, shelter, community.  Those with "real" jobs HAVE to support the ""fake", otherwise unrest will begin.

Balance Books are fake.  Bernanke has taught us that all the debt hole can be filled with fiat (QE).  The inflation WAS during bubble credit expansion.  That's why he (they) "fear" deflation.

Inflation is a tax.  Which way you want it? On income tax? VAT? or "subtle" and creeping slowly.

The lobster sits there while cooked, because he gets used to the every warmer water, until dead.

Let them tax us or inflate us until death.  Let's see who will survive then when there is nobody else to enslave.

I guess they will begin massive automation and robotics, and depopulation.

Then people will graze peacefully, history books will be rewritten, asl always.

Damn, I need to stop reading Huxley.

this is the real Keynesian Endpoint.  when democracy morphs into socialism and then the socialist bankers have to cut off their socialist brothers in the street.  wow.

 

the one thing we know for sure is that REAL SOCIALISTS default on their debts.

what is the real outcome here?  they lay off people to reduce the debt, the unemployment rate goes to 30%, the economy dives deeper into depression, they default either way right?

Dont know why the germans are worried about Irish corporate tax, or the french for that matter. But i do feel sorry for you lot with people like Steingart saying you now need "educated" lol i would have choked the fucker. Man, never mind, i think you might be exiting the euro and re-pegging to the pound. This whole business with the queen doing a love-in while learning Irish on her feet, and William Hauge and Cameron over chiming champange glasses, hummm there just has to be something "going down in the hood".

I was naive enough 2-3 years ago to expect a deal with the continentals regarding debt forgiveness for CT - but these bastards want it all and expect to get blood out of Turnip fields.

The other side of the corporate marriage in Ireland is that the only raw materials the Irish own is Grass - The most productive seas in the EU ain't fished by many Irishmen now. I would be happy to trade our pharmaceutical industry for a fishing industry as most of those profits are externalised anyhow

If these internationalists want a rational discussion about externalities and subsidies many Irishmen not connected to the Dublin - Euro trough transfer mechanism would be happy to lecture them on the finer points of how Europe really works.

Of course this would kill the Iberian fishing industry but fuck it  - lets follow this new patrician rabbit down the end of this hole.

But lets face it - the likelihood is we will lose our multinationals and continue to be Island without a marine industry. 

Fucked in all orifices.

PS it looks like the BOE is becoming a option - at least when those bastards extract their rent they do not tell you which pot to piss in - its a small privilege but what do you expect  - we ain't that bright.

Wonder what took the people of Spain so long to hit the streets. They voted for a socialist government in 2004 and it's been tits up ever since.

Coincidence? I don't know. But the abject failure of Spain, and their highly touted 'green jobs' revolution, has been hidden from plain sight by the anti-journalists here in the USA as they steadfastly refuse to do any reportage on what has transpired in Spain for the last 6 years to bring them to this bitter end.  

Obama and the obamacrats modeled their plan for the USA on Spain even after it was a demonstrable failure. BHO made quiet phone calls to Spain and other countries last year to tell them they should start privatizing their socialized medicine -- to save money -- less than 60 days after he had just signed our socialized medicine monstrosity adn condemned us to the same fate. 

Even most causal observers knew full well Spain was losing 2 jobs for every heavily subsidized green job they created. A well publicized European report (Danish?) came out detailing this and it was officiallly and summarily buried by the US MSM.

It's not that central planners are stupid, it's just that so much of what they know just isn't so.
