In America, we won't be throwing stones at each other in the event of a revolution.
Catch my drift?

We Americans are not in the same position as those who are protesting. At this point most Americans are either content or they are convinced they are content. Until more freedoms are taken away and abuse from the government increase you will not see these types of events happening. Life is about perception, and the majority of Americans still perceive there life as decent.You can call it ignorant if you want but it is what it is.
My opinion is that once the majority of the people that were once middle class realize that they are now in the lower class then these types of events will began. Food seems to be a big factor in alot of the stability problems, the majority of Americans still have food on the table, and although poverty is increasing here it is nothing like some of the third world countries we are watching on the news right now.
