Bread Riots in Our Future?

    The occupy Wall Street movement is just the tip of the iceberg.  I can easily envision whole scale rioting in the streets of this country in the not too distant future.  Why?  Well, to quote Bob Dylan, “When you ain’t got nothing, you got nothing to lose.”

Those who have paid attention as the distribution of wealth in this country has shifted and as we transition from a representative democracy to an oligarchy will understand what I am talking about.  There is only room for so many people under the thumb of corporate oppression.   As the number of oppressed people grows, so will the anger and the intensity with which it is expressed.  We are on a dangerous course and I fear for the future.

The current interest in cutting social programs and things like Medicare is appalling to me, but the most appalling thing of all to me is the number of people who seem quite willing to support this effort which is, essentially, slitting their own throats.  When those people realize that they’ve helped to screw themselves, lookout!!

 

 

Even the Lame, the Halt and the Blind…….

I got this from CNN news today: “President Obama is expected to announce the approval of a plan that would result in the 30,000 U.S. “surge” forces being withdrawn completely from Afghanistan by the end of 2012, an administration official told CNN.” I guess even the Halliburton and Xe types are thinking “Hey, Osama’s dead, there’s no oil in Afghanistan……WTF are we doing staying there?” Do we think they are now going to build a case against Iran? Do I hear WMDs being synthesized?
