    Right.

    But this thread took a comment about what happens when people get desperate and turned into "threats".

    From what I read it was commentary from a historical perspective, not a threat.

    And all those folks in the past who had their applecarts upset were pretty sure they had nothing to worry about too.

    yeah those people didn't have 24 hour news, internet, sophisticated communication devices or serious amounts of automatic weaponry either

    That whole "forgetting the lessons of history" thing.
    I would be positively surprised if the current motivation level in this country was high enough to stage a successful uprising. I mean really, it’s going to take more than camping out in city parks. Further the suggestion was to what the ‘rich’ should fear but based on the revolutions referenced the government should be in fear. I have read several ‘conspiracy theory’ type books that assert that the referenced revolutions in fact were instigated by the rich hence the phrase ‘useful idiots’.

    most of the rich bashing comes from the rich on the left. they know they need votes to maintain their wealth so they pretend to support the interests of the poor when in reality they are gaining power for themselves

    I'm guessing that Pretzel Logic is your favorite album?

    Europe 72, Grateful Dead

    London Calling, The Clash

    Tonight's the Night Steeleye Span

    Turtle, the left doesn't consist of conspiring rich political elitists wanting to stay in power. Most of the 'rich bashing', as you call it, comes from the entire left and not just the rich.

    Can't knock your taste in music, but it doesn't answer the question as to how the rich on the left ... and apparently JUST on the left ... need votes (?) to maintain their wealth? And thus pretend to care about the poor? Fantastical.

    the people who are heard tend to be the rich lefties-Obama, Buffett, Soros.

    and nothing is more sinister machiavellian than watching rich dems whine about the rich
