Live Spanish Protestcam

Tyler Durden's picture


As we observed earlier, Spain, whose YTD expenditures are now nearly 10% greater than last year, has yet to implement any austerity (dear Spanish readers, if your standard of living has gone down it has nothing to do with less government spending, and everything to do with corruption and incompetent politicians). Yet even so, the locals (who at 24% unemployment have quite a bit of free time on their hands) are quite unhappy, and as Art Cashin observed earlier, are "occupying congress" or otherwise indicating their displeasure with the world. Those who wish to follow the major Spanish protest currently underway in Madrid, can do so here.

Amen. So many here talk about the "European wussies" when it looks like a pretty sizeable demonstration by the people who are trying to get their voice heard. Ain't seeing anything like that here in the USofA these days. And what's wrong with peaceful protest? I'd prefer not to see shops burned and people hurt... until we get a big enough protest to get the real change we need and all those politicians heads on pikes!

Indeed, not just USA but also a lot more countries.

What people dont realise is that to subdue a population you have to deteriorate their nutritional intake. Europeans peasantry rose up against their feudal lords, when their food quality improved, with the help of beans from South America introduced to Europe.

Hungry people fight bravely and die quickly and easily.

I've never figured out how sporting events constitute "news" in the first place.

But then again, I've never figured out why so many consider them entertainment either.

To me, it is all just mindless and collectivistic mass insanity.

CNBC is getting paid to hype up NFL (same as MS paid CNBC and Bloomberg TV for three hours of commercials free pre-IPO Facebook hype).

And I bet that less than 1% of the population even knows that the networks are getting paid to "create a buzz" or hype up the coming events (as a movie release, a football game, an IPO, iPhone5 release, an art auction, etc.)

What panics middle class people most is that they know they are doomed and no one cares and no one is going to preserve them.  They are going to "put in at every stop down the river"--believing every piece of bourgeois tomfoolery, until they wake up one morning with nothing.


History won't care.  The middle class is the garbage of history.
