Europe Protests Austerity With Strikes in Spain, Italy
http://www.businessweek.com/news/2012-11-14/spanish-unions-strike-over-r...

Will the North American Union bring to fruition the Amero? Will the Amero be presented to Americans as a way to end our economic crisis? Wouldn't just stopping all these wars be one way to fix our economy? Will we have strikes here in the USA like in Europe? Already Walmart employees are striking, and planning a big strike for next Friday. Or am I an extremist, whatever that means, for daring to post this here at Athens Talks? I do know how to use Opera and vertical side tabs for ease of Internet research, and perhaps that angers some who say that I post too much here at Athens Talks.

“We need to bring manufacturing back to this country. We need to break up big agriculture and big pharma. We need to break up the big chains that have put us into chains. Break the chains. Olive Garden is not Italian food. Pizza Hut is not pizza.”--by Gerald Celente

    Blog: Can we please fix the Oscars?

    Summary:  Fun facts: The first-ever Oscar ceremony, held in 1929, ran a brisk 15 minutes. By contrast, the longest was in 2002, clocking in at a monstrous 4 hours and change. As usual, there are things I loved about it and things I didn't. Rather than be snarky or complain, I'll offer a few suggestions on how the organizers might bring the show into the 21st century.

    Winter storm drama

    Athens-Clarke County police officers responded to Pinewood Estates North on a 911 call concerning a heated domestic dispute. it reportedly was an argument over the lack of heat and food in a family's trailer and a woman was threatening to stab anyone who tried to take away her 7-month-old child. State patrol responded also, from their post nearby on U.S. Highway 29 North. The situation apparently was resolved. An officer reported he was driving the woman and infant to another home in Athens. read more
