Lynne Tilton: "I Believe There Will Very Well Be Violence In The Streets In America"

Courtney Comstock

Private equity maven Lynn Tilton warned NYMag that if the U.S. doesn't create more jobs, there will be violent upheaval.

“The truth is, I believe that there will very well be violence in the streets in America."

“It’s my great fear. And I think the only thing we can do to stop it is by creating employment. Social unrest comes from people who can’t take care of themselves. If we become a populace of the permanently unemployed, and Wall Street keeps going up, and multinational corporations keep making money, but Americans are unable to work and take care of their families, there is going to be social unrest.”

“I believe I have been chosen for this moment, where I can make a difference.”

Tilton has already laid out an extensive plan for how she would create jobs and fix the economy. But "not once" has President Obama asked to hear her thoughts, she told the magazine, which recently profiled her.

The President is listening however. Tilton belives Obama lifted excerpts from her articles.

“I mean actually lifting pieces."

“Literally, I can give you paragraphs. I got like twenty e-mails after his speech, when he was like, ‘We need to be innovators and the makers of things.’ ”

One woman who has seen her talk offers a catty explanation:

"You know, nobody likes seeing too much boob.”

She appears to have great bridge work.

Do you have any photos of her in a thong?

(Just kidding)

"You know, nobody likes seeing too much boob.”

I'd guess the vast majority of men would disagree.

Hey, maybe we could build our very own Autobahn. I mean, it worked for Hitler.

She’s right, of course. And as Gerald Celente said, “When people lose everything and have nothing left to lose, they lose it.” That is why the government kept increasing the unemployment compensation period. And in an entitlement culture, you can believe people will be rioting and looting downtown areas and malls to get what is “rightfully theirs” when the checks stop. Especially those on welfare. Think Rodney King Watts riots, only bigger and nationwide.

Nah. Bread and circuses are doing well so the people are happy. Rioters need a quick catalyst like the Rodney King decision to riot. General malaise just doesn’t flip their switch.

Lynne Tilton is, of course, correct. Historically this sort of thing leads to bad ends, like Hitler, Lenin, Stalin, Mao, etc. ad nauseam. Demagogic dictators.

It depends on the boobs. The woman making the remark was probably jealous that nobody's interested in HERS.

I’m anxious to see what happens on April 15th when a lot of people that were on unemployment all or most of the year, with no withholding taken out, find themselves broke but STILL owing uncle Sam THOUSANDS of dollars. It won’t be pretty.

She took her dental inspiration from the character, Rocky, from the series “Bullwinkle”. Most of we Freepers have been storing Guns, ammo, silver, and food for a good while. From what rock did this woman crawl out under?

General malaise has been around since Clinton. Perhaps we are now entering the discussion among ourselves phase. Discussion as to what to do. Typically the discussion phase is followed by the explosion, a decision is reached and the bankrupt "leadership" class is violently cast out. Watch for "the great silence" the final sign. So goes Western man.

You got that right. Except they probably won’t even file unless their spouse was working. Then they’re in for a shock!

What I fear is the debt limit. I think raise it or not there will be a meltdown.

There will Be Violence In The Streets In America.

My advise:

1) shoot straight

2) Do NOT expect help from the government/LEO

3) You will be on your own

4) Stay positive and and think of the violence as a way of removing a cancer(the left)

5) There is safety in numbers

6) Ally yourself with like minded neighbors

7) Know who your enemies are

8) Street violence has occurred before and people survived.

What will be left to fight over?
The left has killed the golden goose that produces the ‘eggs’. If they go after the assets of the geese, the assets will be sold at ‘mark to market’ which means that the ‘wealth’ really was illusionary.
it’s the economic trends you must obey. The trend for production is declining. notice Lynne used the phrase, ‘people who cannot take care of themselves’. Telling.

By "we" she means someone else. Because all she has to offer is stale, recycled collectivist thinking.

Or when gas goes to $5 or 6$ per gallon as food prices and everything else continue to go up, and up and up.

Those conformable, most of which are on the government payroll in one form or another, don't quite understand the fuss and clearly find this rather amusing.

There won’t be violence over lack of jobs,
but when the welfare checks stop,

THEN there will be violence.

In all fairness, I have to say I have seen her walking around at the HAI conventions, and she does look ‘somewhat’ better in person.

However if we were playing the game, “Starlet or Streetwalker” I would have probably answered, “All of the above.”

The left has killed the golden goose that produces the ‘eggs’.


They had a lot of help from their multinational coroporate pals and the UN, citizens of the world all, in sucking every last drop of blood from that goose.

We live in interesting times.

No matter where you look, everybody’s got a gimmick.

I’m watching a local show the other day and they have a segment about some dame who writes a book “The Crabby Cook”, or somesuch.

She comes on, isn’t much to look at, I watch about 3 minutes and her recipes are nothing amazing...

So she’s some gal who has a couple dozen recipes and a cutesy title. Even if her recipes were good, I was disgusted by the sham. Plastic everywhere... the number one occupation in this country seems to be conning some poor sucker.

Look at Sheen and all his antics!
