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

Posted on 06/06/2011 8:09:29 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

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.....

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.

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."

Interestingly, America’s socialists (aka, “The Democrat Party”) STILL look to European countries like Greece, France, Spain, etc., as models for what they want to do to America. I am not joking.

Some people simply fail to see the writing on the wall.

I'll admit to being the Great Picker of Nits here, but seriously, you need a new crutch phrase.

The "writing on the wall" cliché comes from the OT prophet Daniel, chapter five of his book which describes the events at Belshazzar's feast. At that time, the son of Nebuchadnezzar was throwing yet another drunken orgy highlighted by his guests and their whores swigging booze from the confiscated Temple vessels and praising the gods of gold and silver (from which the Temple articles were fashioned). This offense exceeds photographing a crucifix in a container of urine, or burning a holy book, and is more in line with sodomy in the Ark of the Covenant.

The hand writing on the wall did not go undetected, but was instantly noticed by the thousands in the room, with the greatest reaction by the intended recipient, the king. The party immediately ended as the king physically broke down and cried for the astrologers, magicians and soothsayers to come in immediately and offer an interpretation with the reward of one third of the kingdom.

The message was one of Holy Judgment against the nation and Belshazzar was dead before sunrise. Powerful message from the Almighty Creator regarding profound desecration of items from His Temple for Worship to Him, producing a world changing response and the death of the world's strongest leader and break-up of the world's most powerful nation, leading to a story still being told and preached with awe thousands of years later by people all over the world.

Now how exactly do the victimized white farmers fit into that context so that this cliché has any meaning? I hate seeing powerful Biblical imagery profaned in such a way where powerful world changing judgment is being misapplied to the victims of some petty godless dictator.

You crack me up, Bunky!

The phrase 'the writing on the wall' has come to signify a portent of doom, or the end of an organization or activity. To attribute to someone the ability to "read the writing on the wall" has come to signify the ability to foresee (not necessarily supernaturally) an inevitable decline and end.

Agreed. When things get bad, I wouldn't give a plug nickel for the life of anyone cruising around in a limousine.

But I think the 'something' won't be the current unemployment issue. It will be tied to the value of the dollar and its status as reserve currency. I'm more interested in that and will be watching it closely. That and the interest rate on the 10 year Treasury bond.

With things that bad, that term in office could be shorter than if he'd been legally elected for a second term, IMHO.

The Athenian riff raff hasn’t changed in 2300 years. It still demands to vote to posses that which is not theirs.

Cities are doomed. Once the trucks stop running to them, bottled water will cease to be available and riots will follow
