    How high do you guys think the unemployment rate will go before the riots start?

    My suspicion is that there will be sporatic "incidents" at 20% but they will not hit their stride until unemployment reaches 30%

    I suspect martial law will go into effect shortly before 30% or slightly above.

    And here is another question.... how high will the unemployment rate go before it threatens the viability of WalMart as a viable business?

    How high before governmental collapse? I think if it hits 50% that it could actually happen...?

    They will never blame obama.... they are under demonic possession and cannot see what is real.

    I'm not sure he has a blank check to do that forever. He will not be able to blame his failed healthcare ideas on Bush....

    Yes, yes, yes....i know...Bush is responsible for the Betelgeuse star going super nova but i don't think he can be "successfully" blamed for obamas healthcare ideas? :rolleyes:

    See folks, Mike ain't crazy. He's telling the truth. :eek: :mad: :mad:

    As to your numbers, they sound right to me. I'm not sure at what point Obozo will try to implement Martial Law, but IMHO, that will only make matters worse.

    When I see the first city burning, I'm headed to Carver's hideout! :eek: :D

  15. Correct, Delta. After that it fell slowly, plus or minus 1% per year, until the US began its rearmament programs in 1940-41.

    Nah, The Hussein will blame Bush for the failure of his socialised medicine by saying Bush should have done it 8 years ago.
