John Riceburg does'nt know sh*t

John Riceburg should look up some Spanish history before rushing to print. Nothing too taxing, some basic Wiki articles would suffice.
And if he really believes that the regime which 'Palast der Republik' represented is 'real democracy now' as opposed to the '[Spanish] regime of 1978 which has been challenged by millions of young people occupying plazas' (where did he get this?), I really don't know why he immigrated to Germany and not North Korea.

Read Wikipedia yourself

I don't see how I referred to East Berlin's "Palace of the Republic" representing "real democracy now".

As for the Spanish regime of 1978 being challenged by million's of young people, consult Wikipedia:

The youth of the Spanish State are who demanded "real democracy now" starting on May 15, 2011.

Any other Wikipedia reading you would recommend?

Please, if you write an article, and you want to be serious, I would kindly ask you to use the correct names of the main characters of your article. It is a pity, because it gives a bad image of your professionality.
The daughter charged with corruption is called Infanta Cristina. And the king's house, is called House of Borbón (nothing to do with Bourbon, whiskey)
Just to clarify: I am not for the Spanish monarchy, but I am for rigorous information. Thank you.
