Mayor Bloomberg predicts riots in the streets if economy doesn't create more jobs
Bloomberg speaks of rioting as a result of our economic situation, but I don't think he goes far enough. Just below the surface, this country is a simmering cauldron on any number of fronts.
I'm seeing 2012 shaping up to be similar, in terms of societal tumult, to 1968. We've been seeing an uptick in incidents of union violence, and all along the Left, the rhetoric gets hotter by the day.
The 2008 election was remarkably free of not only racism, but scarcely any reference to Obama's race whatsoever and we, as a country should be proud. Unfortunately, there's an entire industry that exists to exploit race and there are already rumbles that Obama's failures are a result of racism. On the Right, there are people who are getting tired of being accused of non-existent racism and/or extremism, simp for being a member of the "loyal opposition".
We are a highly polarized country and we're becoming more so by the day. No, 2012 wil not be pretty, and it has nothing to do with the Mayan calendar.
