Now now, that was just good old fashioned European bashing actually. I included other countries too. France's debt may not be as high as neighboring countries, but their pending debt obligation with pensions is almost just like Greece, young retirement ages, excessive compensation for pensioners, etc. Growing debt is not a European problem though, it's worldwide. In a few years, California will become like Greece, i can guarantee it. However, if government workers broke out in a riot here, there would be such an enormous backlash against them that such actions would be greatly against their interest. There's already backlash against state government here as the state has been hiring thousand upon thousands of employees when the economy has absolutely collapsed. Despite shrinking revenue, California is still adding billions of dollars to our deficit every year with government employee compensation and pensions. The Governator (the second worst if not the worst governor we've ever had behind only Gray Davis, the man we recalled) even looked into declaring bankruptcy, or actually making the state of California insolvent. Imagine that, California no longer existing. Might not be so bad though. Might need to dip into my zombie apocalypse gear sometime soon though if things keep getting worse like this.
