3. Just to summarize, the seven steps in the article:
1. Soaring, Then Crashing (as in long periods of prosperity, followed by a sudden recession/depression in which millions lose it all. Makes 'em mad...)

2. They Call It A Class War (Read Greg Palast's book Armed Madhouse if you're still not convinced it's a class war.)

3. Deserted Intellectuals (like the scientists having research on global warming censored by the Bushies?)

4. Incompetent Government (anyone not see this?)

5. Gutless Wonders in the Ruling Class (like Reid and Pelosi...)

6. Fiscal Irresponsibility (Hello inflation, insane deficits, candy stimulus packages.)

7. Inept and Inconsistent Use of Force (Don't tase me, bro!)

Yeah. It's not looking good for us...
