UPDATE: Just now heard on America's Morning News that Spain has an unemployment rate of 55%!!!!!

Its declining military budgets and centralized transnational government ensured that it could address global warming and fund ever-expanding entitlements. Even the poorer Mediterranean nations reached new heights of prosperity. The Greek economy...
