I guess I would steal stuff from stores if I needed it. Other wise I would get out of town till everything cools down. America needs a strong economy in order to avoid all these problems.

In Europe, it seems from here to me, whatever class you're born into is the class you'll stay. Getting rid of that notion is one reason America has been such a beacon to the world and that is probably why Europe's class struggles persist there.

I do not expect to see a bunch of senior citizens looting. I expect to see a bunch of people between 16 and 26 looting though and they won't be the ones receiving it. I expect to see this because its what we've seen to date. They will be stirred up by a leader and sent to the streets to fight the "Bourgeoisie" which to them will mean anyone making a living for themselves.
What pisses me off is that if you have a problem with what has happened and the necessary outcome why take it out on regular people trying to make a living. How come the people (the Bureaucracy that created this disaster) get a free pass and their victims get harmed a second time?

Well, I guess it really depends. I paid into Social Security, so I don't look at it as an entitlement program. That's like saying that my 401k is an entitlement program.
