Students: It could be worse, you could be looking for a job in Europe

As bad as the US unemployment rate is for those under 25 (approximately 12%) , it pales in comparison to the levels in Europe.  That, of course, is a logical outcome of 100+ years of implementing varying degrees of socialism across the countries in Europe.  But, as they say, a picture (graph works too!) is worth a thousand words:

Notice that only one country, Germany, is below 20%!  And how's Greece and Spain looking to you now? Pretty scary.  Fortunately, our President realizes that socialism is just a term for government domination of the economy, and he would never advocate that here in America, right? Right?
