I'm just waiting for this Reuters headline...

"Reuters : U.S. government and media coverage overwhelmed with ground shaking protests all over the country, yelling demands 'to restore the Constitution !' including occurrences in the most rural zones reported, as well"

"Cyril" pronounced "see real". I code stuff.

Consumers Overwhelmed by Social Media

MyLife Social Media Study Finds People Fear Missing Out; 57 Percent Wish For A Single Tool to Help Manage Social Networks and Email

MyLife.com® ("MyLife") today announced the results of a commissioned survey of social media behavior, conducted online by Harris Interactive®. According to the 2012 Connecting and Communicating Online: State of Social Media study consumers’—that is, online adults in the U.S. who are 18 and older--fear of missing out (FOMO) may be heightened by their growing reliance on social networks. 62 percent of adults who are currently a member of more than one social networking site say they keep an eye on their social networks because they don’t want to miss something (e.g., news or an important event or status update). The findings also indicate that nearly 40 percent would rather undertake unpleasant or potentially painful activities, from getting a root canal to reading “War and Peace” or spending the night in jail, before they would give up their social networking profiles.

On my wait

Well, I hear you. In fact, I wish for my wait to be ... forever.

Thus, I pray TO BE COMPLETELY WRONG (on waiting for that to happen, as aforementioned).

But, as being accustomed to dealing with large and complex dynamic systems if only to make a living (as a software engineer) I've learned to always prepare for the worst. A PRIORI.

And I know that the issues I deal with daily are A TOTAL JOKE compared to the economic and pshychological phenomenons that can occur in an entire nation's FLAWED economy.

We just don't know.

However, I'd bet wise to expect the frequency of this type of Reuters headlines to rise steadily, along with the intensity/implications of the content. It's very likely a gradual, continuous, process ... I'm fine with the idea that it's not for tomorrow or probably not even for next week or the next couple months or next year to REALLY worry about food and basic energy needs, but at some point, that can go on with evolving really, really, fast and faster, FASTER...

... not in the positive direction.

We just need to be aware of the risk enough, TODAY, to be able NOT TO panic when everybody else will tend to.

'Hope it makes sense &

Protesting won't do squat to restore our freedoms

Peaceful civil disobedience is the only way we'll have freedom.

We just need to ignore the government.

Bottom line: Millions of people ignoring the government will send a much bigger message to the government than just angry protests and worthless marches.

More relevant to your post, btw...

You might find the roster of the CFR interesting, while you're at it :

See where I was going to ?

I get your point. But I

I get your point. But I wasn't thinking of the Occupy-[whatever] kind of marches

(who, just IMO, represent almost nobody but themselves... but I might have a biased point of view since I've been self-sustaining (and did for my dependents) 17 years in a row ever since I started working, without ever claiming for any "entitlements", and reinjecting like 95% of my *NET* income directly into the economy, with savings still close to zero as of today ... so nevermind)

So, no...

... I was more thinking of the marches that might eventually occur as including most of today's Ron Paul *detractors*, joining us in-extremis, once they figure that the so-called "welfare state government"(*) they once *praised* has become, say, North Korea-alike.

Unlikely worst case scenario not to appeal for/be busy fearmongering about, I know.

But, still, look at what Obama-and-the-like are willing to surrender/sell their own soul and their people to : e.g., the CFR, for something that fits in a trigram. Hint : http://www.infowars.com/council-on-foreign-relations-propaga...

Doesn't this sort of video make you want to just THROW UP ?? On me, it does, I can assure you.
