Default Re: America is Bankrupt

Let's see. Until now, the middle class is happy buying their SUVs and their McMansions. If 10% of the population is poor, it's their fault, they say. Call them white trash, trailer trash. Let's buy a plasma TV and an IPod.

A revolution, a real civil war would only happen if and when the middle class is affected. You call less than 10% a high unemployment rate ? It is nothing. here in Sao Paulo it is 20%. The US is rich and content today. Of course there are problems, but while they are confined to a minority, things will stay the way they are.
