The economists I follow predict that the riots start in 2013 - when the average Joe discovers that no matter who he voted for in 2012, he is still permanently screwed.
The very rich admire the Russian mafia - they stole the best bits of the old Soviet empire for themselves. That's what all the "Social security is broken" stuff is about "privatising it", and why the USPS is under attack; Fedex and UPS would like to buy it.

"They know not, neither will they understand; they walk on in darkness" (Ps. lxxxii. 5). Truth, in spite of all its powerful manifestations, is completely withheld from them, and the following words of Scripture may be applied to them, "And now men see not the light which is bright in the skies" (Job xxxvii. 21). They are the multitude of ordinary men: there is no need to notice them in this treatise.
