Riots spread from Greece across Europe
"What's happening in Greece tends to prove that the extreme left exists, contrary to doubts of some over these past few weeks," French Interior Ministry spokesman Gerard Gachet told The Associated Press.
But, he added, the coming days and weeks would determine whether "there's a danger of contagion of the Greek situation into France."
Senator Jim DeMint (R-SC) has a strange definition of rioting.
He claims that if Congress passes the White House-approved bailout for the failing auto industry, there will be "riots."
“We’re going to have riots," he said following a Dec. 10 press conference. "There are already people rioting because they’re losing their jobs when everybody else is being bailed out. The fairness of it becomes more and more evident as we go along. The auto companies may be hurting, but there are very few companies that aren’t hurting and they’re going to hurt. We don’t have enough money to bail everyone out."
According to the Business and Media Institute, he blames the automotive industry workers unions for the bailout's progress in the Senate.
The Senator's comment, "there are already people rioting," is an odd one, considering there are currently no reports of "riots" ongoing in the United States. Sen. DeMint did not elaborate on that point.
