Yeah, I've been anticipating this....

Bloomberg: Jobs crisis could spark riots here

Ya think?
It's not a me...

NEW YORK (CNNMoney) -- New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg is worried that high U.S. unemployment could lead to the same kind of riots here that have swept through Europe and North Africa.

"You have a lot of kids graduating college, [who] can't find jobs," said Bloomberg, during his weekly radio show on Friday. "That's what happened in Cairo. That's what happened in Madrid. You don't want those kinds of riots here."

Just kids graduating FROM college? (I hate it when people say 'graduating college' -- the phrase has a "FROM" in it)....
What about the adults, long since out of school, who are unemployed or underemployed or have given up entirely?
(Raise your hand if you fit into any of those categories.....Mine Is Up!)

Well, you know, maybe we don't WANT those kinds of riots here, but, what else is there we can do?

This thread probably won't get much traffic, but I'm just wanting to point out that the so-called tipping point is very, very close.

(mods: I did a search for the headline -- if it's already a thread, fine, kill this one!)
