    Good evening, AP.
    I always bring the booze, so that didn't occur to me, and a deck would be better than some places I have slept...

    If the Conservatives ever control enough to destroy the middle class and bring us to the days of nobles and peasants, it could happen.
    But it would happen along side many different types of riots, total chaos, massive poverty, and the end of our Nation.

    I agree that it's status, education, opportunity and money, not color that divides. But it is envy that creates the animosity towards the race that is predominately wealthy and in control.

    Anthony Bourdain did a show on Cleveland once. He actually made it appear semi-enticing.

    Good morning, Painter.

    If you don't see "nobles and peasants" in today's society, you haven't been paying attention to what's going on in DC! We're already thought of as the peasants! They exempt themselves from laws that apply to us, and they don't care what we think about it!

    I believe that any riots would quickly be quelled by the police. They have families they worry about, too. We are not a third world country, where we don't know any other form of governance except chaos! Rational people will protect their families against lawbreaking thugs, and they won't much care what color they are!

    Good evening, Navy Pride.

    The "nobles and peasants" thinking wasn't as obvious then as it is now, IMO. Maybe it was, but it's more blatant now. The odd thing is that half the peasants today don't seem to realize they are peasants, or if they do, they don't care!
