Touch Social Security? Some may REACT WITH Violence: corporations & the rich-finally. 30 years
of class warfare engaged by the rich and powerful upon the working class without any retribution is ENOUGH! If this catnip commission and congress do anything to adversely effect Social Security I would hope there be a swift and final retaliation to those who would perpetrate such an immoral and unconscionable act.

10. So you're claiming common cause with that sentiment?

13. Where did I say I was claiming common cause
with ANY sentiment? I merely answered the question with a potential answer.

I actually think that there will be more of a violent reaction from the left to physical RW attacks on us. That puts it in the realm of PERSONAL self defense. The Brown Shirt Teabaggers will pick on the WRONG leftie at some point and WILL pay a physical price.

15. My sincerest apology.
I've been a bit reflexive lately by some of the none-too-veiled calls for violence around this place lately...this OP is an example.

I failed to read your post in its own context.

Personally, think people need to dial down the rhetoric on both sides.

19. I can't agree with a false equivalence.........
There haven't been very many "calls for violence", veiled or unveiled, that I'VE noticed around here. Now, there HAVE been a lot of calls for SELF DEFENSE in the face of Brown Shirt Teabagger violence. And I'm one of them. The RWers CALL for violence, we try to anticipate where and how the violence will occur, in my case, in order to be prepared for it when it DOES happen.

7. I wouldn't characterize it as threats so much as predictions. I'm not about to proclaim
a threat on a public forum for agent mike of the oligarchy police to use to imprison or otherwise stifle my first amendment right to make a prediction.

9. I'm afraid you're absolutely correct. I would envision that perhaps this might be the proverbial
final straw. It is easy to imagine reactionary activism" and organized mass strikes, boycotts, and targeted retaliation against banks, oil companies, politicians, and the wealthy.

11. I've spoken to a couple of folks about this type of
thing and my take is that what ALSO might happen is a rise in random violence against the wealthy and other capitalist targets. IOW, instead of violence on the poor side of town, it might move over to the wealthy areas. Or maybe some banks get vandalized in a random, anarchistic type manner.

There will need to be a spark though. Maybe the Catfood Commission or maybe something else. It could also be a reaction to RW violence against the left. As to the latter, there DEFINITELY will be some blowback against the blowhards at some point in the future. They will pick on the WRONG leftie at some point in time and WILL pay a price.

17. When people are pushe dto the brink and are continuously assaulted with injustice and inequity
they will eventually reach out to the perpetrators of such with a reaction of some sort. Infact it is documented throughout history. It's only a matter of time at this point.

18. Bloody Sunday and the 1905 Russian Revolution
My grandfather was a "Revolutionary" in the 1905 Russian Revolution, and I was raised on his stories of the prelude to the 1905 Revolution, and the blood bath of "Bloody Sunday."

I think the Tea Partiers and the GOP are pushing America to a "Bloody Sunday." Citizens United and Leadbetter were too subtle to bring forth a "Bloody Sunday." Significant adverse changes to Social Security and Medicare could bring forth a significant LOC "Second Amendment" response.

The "Second Amendment" response won't be the Tea Partier - right winger response predicted by the anencephalic Sharron Angle.

16. Thanks for making me aware of this. In the future I'll sure to consider this and refrain
from ever speaking my mind again. Perhaps you might consider in turn my extreme hatred for needless non subject related comments seeming to demean and stifle honest sentiments and rejection of the status quo.
