        will do desperate things.  

        We are nowhere near out of the economic mess for a great number of people, and those with ammunition and ambition could be dangerous to all of us.

        I remember the long hot summers of the 1960's and how things simmered along until there were literally explosions of violence in our cities.   Instead of the leftist extremists we may well have far right extremists initiating problems this time.  

        Likewise the marijuana issues might be very unsettling; cartels may start looking for new sources of revenue.

        Rule of law doesn't look too strong to a lot of people, since the financial crimes of the last 12 years have not been tried and punished;  justice will remain a serious issue.
