    I think that's what it's going to take. The modern day equivalent of a serf uprising and I don't see it being peaceful.

      nightmare scenario.

      I hope that the quality of debate will improve,
      but I fear we will remain Democrats.

      •  Yeah, but look around, U6 is 20% or more (1+ / 0-)

        And we're still struggling to get people to vote for their economic interests instead of worrying about "teh gayz" or abortion. The middle class is divided (and many deluded into thinking they could be the upper class) As long as those divisions and delusions exist the "bread and circuses" will keep them happy. Though Hannity now calls the bread "beans and rice".

        •  U6 is not at 20% (0+ / 0-)

          It's currently 14.5%.  That's still a really bad number, but there's no need to misrepresent the truth.

            And you would acknowledge that if there wasn't an election coming up and the guy who is supposed to represent the interests of those classed as "U"s ain't doing it.

            The only misrepresentation is the weekly and monthly bags of shit we get from the BLS.

              Sorry, but it's a fact that U6 is being reported at 14.5%.  It took all of ten seconds to google and find the correct number.

                HR'd for BS HR. Keep your eyes firmly on the road sign that says "Govt  Truth This Way".  Who believes govt statistics? Idiots. Did you believe the stats coming out of W's admin?
