For years, researchers such as Gerald Celente have been warning that the coming economic collapse is going to spark mob scenes and riots that are unprecedented in U.S. history. Many have scoffed at these predictions and have refused to believe that anything like that could ever happen in America. But if what happened on Wednesday near Atlanta is any indication, we could be on the verge of something really bad. 30,000 people turned out to pick up only 13,000 applications for government-subsidized housing. Some people had waited for over two days just to get their hands on an application. The "chaotic mob scene" that developed as the applications were being handed out left 62 people injured. It turns out that there aren't even any vacancies in government-subsidized housing at this time in that area. These people were going wild just to get an application to get on the waiting list for government-subsidized housing. Yes, this is what the American Dream has degenerated into - thousands of people rioting in an attempt to get on a waiting list for a government handout.
This is how one person who was there described the scene....
"Lot of people. People pushing people, knocking people over. People getting hurt."
As you watch the video news report about this incident below, keep in mind that these people were going crazy just to get an application to get on a waiting list....
So what is going to happen when real hunger and real economic hardship comes to the streets of America?
What kind of mob scenes will we see then?
But it isn't only in Atlanta where this type of thing is happening.
Just check out the following scene from Detroit from late last year....

The rioting should rightfully be in NY, DC, LA, Detroit and Chicago.
Add San Francisco to that list.
People should be marching and protesting for our government to make a 180 degree turnabout in its current economic policies.
They should be protesting IN FAVOR OF CUTTING GOVERNMENT SPENDING.
They should be protesting LOWERING CORPORATE AND INDIVIDUAL INCOME TAX RATES.
They should be protesting IN FAVOR OF CUTTING THE SIZE, SCOPE AND INTRUSIVENESS OF GOVERNMENT.
They should be protesting IN FAVOR OF CREATING JOBS NOT MORE ENTITLEMENTS!
We are. It’s called the Tea Party. : - )
Also add Philly, St. Louis, & Orlando/Kissimmee.
It is hardly news that the underclass showed up for free stuff and was not particularly polite while they waited.
Add Philly. I am so glad I don’t live in a city..
Never, ever come between the Welfare Vulture Culture and a free handout. Years ago in Washington, my father, a minister, was attacked in his car when he made the mistake of driving past RFK Stadium just as they ran out of the free Michael Jackson Concert tickets they were giving away. His car was demolished. Thank God, he escaped with only minor injuries.
Oh, by the way: he was returning home after taking communion to a black woman in a nearby hospital. She was not even a member of his church. When dealing with the Welfare Vulture Culture, you always pay for the good that you do.
Welcome to hope and change...Hey, he didn’t say what kind of hope or change!!! sarc
Most of those people didn’t even qualify. Your annual income had to be below $16000 a year.
You can add Dallas, Houston, Miami, etc., etc., etc to the list.
The History Channel aired a program the other day on Solar Storms and how a Major CME could potentially knock out satellites and electricity for the Northern Hemisphere..
If that were to happen, we would all literally be *On our own* no way of communicating except with your neighbors.
They suggest these immediate needs:
Battery operated radio
Lots of Water
Matches, Candles, Flashlights
Cash in the house
I believe that day is coming sooner than most people think because we are on a path of economic and financial unsustainability which will inevitably lead to a total collapse.
That day is coming and coming soon.
These vouchers are being used as weapons of mass destruction to my home town.
In the affluent safe part of town a developer backed by the Feds tossed up “low income housing.”. Section 8 housing vouchers. Entire area is now a mess. Crime. People getting out while they can. All funded by tax dollars.
The United Soviet States will collapse in the next decade. Just hope you don’t live in one of the zones that’ll go third world Hobbesian after the fall.
This is the underpinning.
And yes, this is a fundamental accoutrement to the "third world-zation" of an advanced nation. It has all the indications of that, and there will be more of this.
There will be organized bands of illegal aliens or others on the dole, armed, going into middle class or upper class sections of town to pillage and vandalize out of anger and spite that which they cannot take. The President will have been responsible for fomenting this kind of action on the part of the have not masses against the EVIL producers of society. You have to turn a society upside down to make it into a Socialist Paradise. Cambodia, China, Russia, Vietnam, Cuba, it happened much the same way there, and it is in store for the United States, too.
YOU BETTER BELIEVE THE ATMOSOPHERE IS CHARGED AND *CLASS WARFARE* IS JUST DOWN THE STREET, A LOT SOONER THAN MANY FOLKS FIGURE
It is going to get worse, you can see it coming, many from outside the United States who study US politics/society/democraphics and pop culture and society from a distance indeed do see it coming. Many of us here overseas talk about this shift we see back home, on an alarming and increasing basis. We all see it and sense it, and probably as a result of being far away and circumspect, nary a person will say "in AMERICA? Nawwww. (It'll) Never happen."
