5. They are vicious & in a garish way. But they're really underestimating the determination & will of
the people, particularly the young people who've impressed me as having quite a knack for good, solid organizational & thinking skills. I don't think this is going away; the people are too knowledgable about what's going on to turn back now.

How vicious & disturbing is this:

(from the OP's link)

For years teachers and other unionized labor have had us fooled. We were too busy working to notice. Do you really think that we are incapable of teaching 3rd graders and doing landscaping? Were going to take your cushy jobs with tenure and 4 months off a year whine just like you that we are so-o-o-o underpaid for building the youth of America. Say goodbye to your overtime and double time and half. Ill be hitting grounders to the high school baseball team to $5k extra a summer, thank you very much. So now that were going to be making $8k a year without upside, Joe Main street is going to have his revenge right? Wrong! Guess what: were going to stop buying the new 80k car, we arent going to leave the 35 percent tip at our business dinners anymore. No more free rides on our backs. Were going to landscape our own back yards, wash our cars with a garden hose in our driveways. Our money was your money. You spent it. When our money dries up, so does yours.

The difference is, you lived off of it, we rejoiced in it. The Obama administration and the Democratic National Committee might get their way and knock us off the top of the pyramid, but its really going to hurt like hell for them when our fat a**es land directly on the middle class of America and knock them to the bottom. We arent dinosaurs. We are smarter and more vicious than that, and we are going to survive. The question is, now that Obama & his administration are making Joe Main street our food supplywill he? And will they?
