"The Daily Caller provides a four-minute video from today's Don Imus Show, in which Democratic political strategist James Carville warns that extended unemployment will have a destabilizing effect on American politics, which is hardly the kind of Hope and Change Obama was selling in 2008:"


"It is going to be very difficult," Carville said. "But the country, if that is what we are doing, this is gruesome on people. This unemployment rate for this long is humanitarian crisis of the first magnitude. This financial crisis, people have studied this by the way, they know that the things take this long to work their way through. The aftermath of these things — kind of an academic book that is dry entitled 'This Time is Different.' What it concluded it is not different this time. They studied it, the aftermath of the financial crisis. What we are going through is imminently predictable. But this is a terrible thing that has happened to people's lives. I think the president at one level understands that, you know. But he is limited in what he can do. So we'll just have to see. But it's going to be hard. If 54,000 jobs is the new norm – this is going to be very, very tough. Some people say it just might be one more thing. We don't know."

But Carville said the consequences aren't limited to politics alone. He warned of heighten risk of civil unrest with the bleak economic picture.

"You know, look – this is a humanitarian — you know, you're smart enough to see this," Carville said. "People, you know, if it continues, we're going to start to see civil unrest in this country. I hate to that, but I think it's [eminently] possible."
Well, until folks wake up and quit buying imported goods, jobs will be outsourced to cheaper labor countries. The "free" trade agreements also help outsource jobs, but the news media only portrays what the US can gain by exports.

Probably in another 18 months, the media and congressional numnuts will start blabbering about a need for actually combining the countries to have a "North American Union"........... while they continue behind the scenes setting up an economic Babylon.
Here it begins.....they start talking about unrest and then they stir people up and then start taking more rights away. First it will be guns.....cant have some wacko go out and shoot anyone. Then it will be travel...cant have wackos meeting up and joining forces.

They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.
