Who is at fault now?

Greece, and the officials who they voted into office. They created their own mess. They lied about that mess. And, they got help, but still couldn't get their shit all in one bucket. How many times should the responsible countries be expected to pay for the sins of the irresponsible? They're like an alcoholic who's still in denial about his affliction.

Of course they don't have jobs. There are no jobs to be had. Do you understand? THERE ARE NO WHITE COLLAR JOBS. If you send your hypothetical undereducated person to get a four year degree, now he is a well-educated, still-unemployed person. Most Americans-- heck, most people in the world-- are not looking to expatriate for employment, so the "world job market" is not relevant. Education is great, but it's not the cause of this problem.

It's easy to write them off, but the fact is that we already have an affirmative action infrastructure in the USA, which could easily be adapted for every conceivable "protected class". Affirmative action should have been retired 15-20 years ago, once it had outlived its usefulness. Now, it remains as a dangerous tool of political manipulation.
