Is The U.S. Heading For Violence?

For the first time maybe since the Vietnam War or certainly since the civil rights movement, there are some darkening storm clouds on the civility horizon. A growing number of voices are continuing to suggest that if this economy doesn't turn around, and people can't start feeling optimistic about their futures again, we could be headed for some ugly scenarios. A new CNN poll says 48 percent of Americans think the country is headed for another Great Depression in the next twelve months. That is a stunning number.

James Carville, who in 1992 told Bill Clinton, "It's the economy stupid," says the current economy is so bad, there is a heightened risk of civil unrest. And unless things start changing for the better, it's a distinct possibility.

Our country is bankrupt and our government refuses to do anything about it. Unemployment is stuck above 9 percent. Millions of Americans are out of work, some for a number of years now. The value of peoples' homes is sinking below the break-even line. In the most recent jobs report, more than half of the private sector jobs that were added were at McDonald's.

For young people coming out of the nation's colleges and universities, their families having invested hundreds of thousands of dollars in their education, the outlook is grim.

Add in the early record breaking heat in the cities in the East and we might not even have to wait until 2012. It could become a long, hot, ugly summer.

Here’s my question to you: What are the chances the U.S. economy could eventually trigger violence in our country?
More Here..


  1. The middle class, military and most anyone who believes in small government seems primed to blow.

    I expect many more murder suicides as people lose jobs, get sick or just panic.

    Those who have something to lose will feel the disaster coming our way...Those who have never really worked for their supper will only feel cuts in their lifestyle.

    Revolution?...Not yet...Strikes, protests and odd plots?...Yes.

    Fuck the big cities with large hispanic/black populations those hellholes will actually get worse!

  2. I expect heaven because you get what you expect.

    Why not be unrealistic considering how ABSURD everything else is you might as well believe what YOU want to believe if you understand me.

  3. @10:36, Those who have never really worked for their supper will only feel cuts in their lifestyle.

    You don't think starving will be the new way of life for them?

  4. Waaaaaaa. Here me out now. the next time you want to talk bad about me you do it my face. when i came here i came to give advice. sound and reasoning. good old advice just like you and people everywhere. but i guess grammer was bad. so stuff it up and get used to it brothers and sisters. as i thought the next point of attack will be black people. racist white rich people like plotting against them. they tell them what to do and think. they control minds with illegal substance. now they want to blame them on economics. well guess what. we will not let them fall for what rich men did. rulers of this planet are white and yellow, not black and red. so soon the rich will be thrown out as we take back planet. we will spread the wealth. we will give equality to everybody.

  5. I won't start feeling optimistic about the
    future again until:

    We get a president who cares about our country
    and doing his job with pride. The current
    vacationer-in-chief doesn't have a brain in his
    head and only cares about how history was made.

    We get an uncorrupt legal and judicial system.
    Just look at the jokers we have sitting on the
    supreme court...why, it's like a circus!
    Every day I see police officers hassling poor
    everyday citizens, standing on the side of
    the road with their radar guns, or pulling
    some guy over in a pickup with a trailer just
    to make money for the state.

    We start to really seriously fight the war
    on drugs. I see pictures of smiling army
    guys standing in poppy fields in Afghanistan.
    Some drug cartel has a substantial dope
    growing operation going on at the property
    behind my house, I called the cops, but it's\
    'legal' in the state. However, I 'thought'
    it was a FEDERAL crime, so they are, simply,
    by definition CRIMINALS! When is the fed
    going to put an end the the mindless zombies
    running the streets of America?

    We seal our borders, and stop the constant
    flow of millions of uneducated, poverty-
    stricken, un-assimilating, unmotivated
    third-world non-english speaking filthy
    trash-throwing welfare-sucking baby factories
    from overrunning our country. Hey, we used
    to have laws, remember?

    We get our troops the hell out of the Middle
    East. Let them sons-a-b's go ahead and
    riot all they want! Yeah, yeah, I know, it's
    all about the oil. That's why we're their, I
    know, I know... but seriously, why are we
    wasting millions of dollars bombing Tripoli
    3 times over turning builings into bricks into
    rubble into sand. And then, when it's time
    for me to get my social security, well, too
    bad, so sad, we're broke. Screw every other
    country out there! Bring the troops home!
    Oh, no, they'll be employed! They'll have
    plenty of work sealing our borders. Why do we
    give billions of money that we borrowed from
    China or printed out of thin air to these
    other nations when the highways I drive on are
    full of potholes and the cops want to give ME
    tickets to pay to fill them?

    I could go on.....I can't, I'm just sick now.

  6. The Traitor in Chef will continue to take vacations. More evidence of his birth issue will be found and the FBI will not ever arrest him for the felony of creating a fake birth certificate.

    If our troops were pulled out of the 150 bases all over the world, most would be discharged into civilian life. They will find no jobs available for people that only know how to kill and blow shit up.

    Illegal immigration is a major problem in the border states. There is no question the flood of illegals from Mexico (mostly from Mexico, yea I know about Central America too) is not slowing down. They come with little or no education, no marketable skills, nothing to offer. They only know how to make anchor babies and collect Social Services

    I lost my full time job in 2008. I have not had anything close to a full time job since. I once got paid as much as $40.00 an hour and a couple days ago, I saw a job post for my exact skill set, the company wanted to pay $9.00 an hour as an Independent Contractor! I have seen my profession's income drop from $40.00 an hour all the way down to $10.00. Housing prices have now fallen to levels lower than in the Great Depression.

    Kids graduate from high school and can't even find a job at a car wash, since the car wash is staffed by illegals getting paid less than minimum wage. I have even heard stories of car wash workers being paid only tips. No fast food jobs for the recently graduated, the fast food places are staffed by illegals or MBA's and PhD's who can't find a job in their profession. You know things are bad when a fast food place opens up and 400 people are waiting to submit their employment applications.

    I agree, cops are now nothing but revenue collectors, as they ticket for every violation they can find. Did we ever think the day would come when a SWAT team would bust down a door and invade a home over an unpaid Student Loan?

    There are hundreds of thousands homes sitting vacant from foreclosures with the former owners living in their cars or the street. These homes are not selling. I wouldn't dream of buying a home under these conditions. As it is I'm trapped in a home / neighborhood I would love to leave, knowing it's going to be a first class ghetto in the next 3 years.

    Will we see violence in the streets of America? Absolutely. It's only a matter of time. Many will die needlessly. Many more will suffer and we can all lay the blame where it belongs, Washington DC and Wall Street.
