    it would be too inconvenient for those in gated communities, but personally, I think the worse the shock the less likely the pitchforks. Shock is...disabling. That's one reason why it works.

    However, I am not wedded to that point. You may be correct.

    •  Tough call. As long as "they" (0+ / 0-)

      stick to chipping away at the income of the working poor and hitting the wealth and income of only 1-3% those that consider themselves consider themselves middle-class with each "shock," the first response will be that it's but a temporary set-back and they can weather the storm.  But a tipping point to a negative feedback loop is close.  "They" managed to pull back from the brink of the "dollar breaking the buck" last time.  If they can't the next time, that's when those in those gated communities begin to hurt.  Those aren't the people that blame themselves for their misfortune -- blaming others is how they got into those gated-communities.
