Carville: There Will Be Civil Unrest Over Economy
NewsMax ^ | June 6, 2011 | Dan Weil

If the bleak job market doesn’t improve soon, both the country and President Barack Obama will suffer the consequences, says star Democratic strategist James Carville. The country could even end up with citizen uprisings, the man who played a key role in much of former President Bill Clinton’s political success told radio talker Don Imus in an interview simulcast on Fox Business.

Carville bluntly told Imus: “You know, look — this is a humanitarian — you know, you’re smart enough to see this . . . People, you know, if it continues, we’re going to start to see civil unrest in this country. I hate to say that, but I think it’s imminently possible.”

The unemployment rate rose to 9.1 percent in May, while the economy generated only 54,000 jobs — and statistics indicate that most of them were for starter positions at fast-food giant McDonald’s.

“If 54,000 new jobs a month is the new standard, it will be a very bad 2012 for Obama,” Carville said.

To be sure, the job gains in previous months were higher, and that trend could resume, he said. In addition, Republicans don’t have too much in the way of effective job programs, either, he argues.....

He'd better hope he's wrong. The political class won't be nearly as safe as they think they are when something happens.

Gosh that’s simple enough to fix.

Let’s send more American jobs overseas.

Civil unrest will be started by Obama, sparked by SEIU, fanned by ACORN and only then fueled by the mass of unemployed.

“Civil unrest” is always caused by the left and its “community organizers”.

Possible? I fully expect to see it this summer.

If you haven’t already it’s time to prepare. You needed to be stocking up on food guns, ammo, basic household supplies like soap, papergoods, cleaning supplies, good sturdy clothes including extra socks, underwear and extra shoes and boots, a extra couple changes of oil and filters for your car, tools, things you buy everyday start buying two and put one up.

I think that we are at the very least in for a collapse much like that of Argentina’s ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7yerKMQc7-w&feature=grec_index), but as a armed society with a very large entitlement minded population our collapse will be much more violent and I see many many small business wiped out by flash mob looting, and large scale violence (look at what happened just this past Memorial Day weekend). I see what I call ‘Pocket Pogroms’ taking place in many big ‘Blue’ cities and if you aren’t Amish it’s going to get Reginald Denny bad for you very quickly.

For those who haven’t prepared and would like to start or for those that have and are just interested you may download my Preparedness Manual at:

http://www.tomeaker.com/kart/preparedness1i.pdf

As the LDS say “When the emergency is upon us the time for preparedness has past.”

Or as the bible says: A prudent man sees danger and takes refuge, but the simple keep going and suffer for it.
NIV Proverbs 22:3

What Carville means is that there will be fires and looting galore in the concentrated Democrat parasite nests (”cities”). When the time finally arrives that the Democrat politicians run out of “other people’s money” to hand out in exchange for votes, the parasites of the government-addicted Democrat party “base” will be left scrambling. Those nests will be a good place to avoid.

Meanwhile, in civilized America normal families will circle the wagons and take care of each other, for better or worse.

Greek government faces revolt over second wave of austerity measures

With protests dividing his own party and tens of thousands taking to the streets, Greece's prime minister, George Papandreou, attempted on Monday to whip up support for a new wave of austerity.

As Athens sold a 10% stake in OTE, the state-owned Hellenic Organisation of Telecommunications, to Deutsche Telekom – launching one of Europe's biggest privatisation programmes ever – the socialist leader faced what could be his most critical week in office.

...

Ordinary Greeks say they have already been brought to their knees by a series of unprecedented public spending cuts that have seen wages frozen, pensions dwindling, taxes soar and benefits lost.

Public opposition is such that on Sunday 80,000 protesters converged on Syntagma Square, the site of Athens' parliament, to denounce the fresh austerity as the equivalent of a "foreign occupation" with many demanding that the measures be put to popular vote.

Now lets imagine for one second that sarah Palin has said this. She probably would metro’s like Anderson Cooper accusing her of trying to incite violence.

I tend to think that this mightr be part of the Obozo reelection propaganda campaign .

The following memes for the campaign: 1. If we don’t reelect Obozo there will be riots in the streets.

2. If we don’t reelect Obozo were Raaacist.

3. And finally Obozo is the One & if we don’t reelect him all his work has been for nothing.

This is my thinking on this topic your mileage may vary.

Praise the Lord and pass the ammo.

"But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: for men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away, for his name is Obama."
