What Happens When You Run Out Of Them?

It seems that the Greek socialists are not happy with their government's plan to rectify Greek finances.

About 3,000-4,000 protesters marched through central Athens, carrying banners reading "tax the rich" and "Don't take the bread from our table." Scuffles broke out when about 150 demonstrators challenged police lines near the city's central Syntagma Square, and police responded with tear gas.

Greek airports remained open, however, after air traffic controllers suspended their participation in the strike because of the travel chaos caused by Iceland's volcanic ash cloud.

Labor unions fear deeper cuts after the Socialist government began talks this week with the International Monetary Fund, the European Central Bank and the European Commission for a three-year rescue package aimed at easing the country's acute debt crisis.
So what happens when you run out of rich to tax? California.

When you run out of rich to tax, than the only rich you have left are your dictators.

And they are very rich and everyone else is very poor.
