If the bleak job market doesn’t improve soon, both the country and President Barack Obama will suffer the consequences, says star Democratic strategist James Carville. The country could even end up with citizen uprisings, the man who played a key role in much of former President Bill Clinton’s political success told radio talker Don Imus in an interview simulcast on Fox Business.
Carville bluntly told Imus: “You know, look — this is a humanitarian — you know, you’re smart enough to see this . . . People, you know, if it continues, we’re going to start to see civil unrest in this country. I hate to say that, but I think it’s imminently possible.
There are many links available. I chose this link because it has the actual audio of the interview.

I do think that it is possible. I have seen more stories on murder-suicides and someone just shooting up a store and killing everyone inside and the updates always come back to financial problems and unemployment. Could it become viral? Definitely. I don't have a solution to the job problem, but I'm guessing we shouldn't have wasted SO much money with our "stimulus" crap, we would probably be much further out of this horrid hole if we wouldn't have bailed those out that were obviously meant to go under.

My husband is making around 1/3 less then he was at the same job as he did when we met. It is that way for so many people. I dont know what itll take to wake up America, but I dont see them getting up and doing much.
I just have to ask. Do think our current economic situation would be any different had McCain been elected? If so, what do you think that he would have done that would have been the economic correcter/spark.

I am really having a hard time feeling bad for anyone these days that wants to take their anger out in the streets if they get shot rioting, so be it.
Civil unrest isn't the same as rioting. If you think people deserve to be shot for participating in acts of civil unrest you're a total asshole.
