    What would be the last straw for the American people? No Social Security or Veteran's checks? A total collapse of the financial systems? Unable to withdraw money from banks similar to the runs before the Great Depression? Some other event?

    Do the game play politicians even realize the anger out there?

    We aren't close to open revolution. We are close to a voter rebellion, however, even though it will take a year to realize it.

    As long as the Fed keeps printing money--about $80 billion a month the last I heard--we can keep things looking normal on the surface. The problem will begin if we take steps to put people back to work, because then inflation will surface and it could be drastic since a couple of trillion dollars have been printed since Obama. Personally, I think that the government will pay their bills with Fed notes that will have very little buying power. The inflation is visible in areas that the government does not monitor--gasoline and food prices. Food prices are forced high in part by Ethanol, a subsidy to corn belt farmers, who are literally living high on the hog.
