Europeans outraged over economy Americans casually protest
Posted by TwitC
The United States and Europe are facing tough economic times. Fourteen million Americans are unemployed and 20% of Spain's population can't find work, but Europeans are reacting much differently to their economic difficulties than Americans. Over the past few months, tens of thousands of Europeans have mobbed cities across the continent lighting cars on fire and storming government buildings. Americans - like the tea partiers and new progressive movements have rallied together, but many say the American protestors argue more about getting their freedoms back than getting more practical things like better wages or pensions.
