Someone noted yesterday that the makeup of the Egyptian demonstrators had changed -- that the middle class had broken through the "fear barrier" and had now taken to the streets. Think about that, because all over the world, the fear barriers are starting to fall and this is a huge threat to the global establishment, the very people who flock to Davos each year for the World Economic Forum:This is why the regressives, the Chris Christies, the Tim Pawlentys, the Tea Baggers in general have declared war on public employee unions. They FEAR labor. They don't have to worry about private sector unions. The corporate whores are dismantling them quite effectively through bankruptcy procedures where they can go in the tank and under the guise of reorganizing, they defund the pensions and thereby demoralize the workforce to the point of abandoning their unions.
In the Bagger world, which lives by the precepts of the Cult of St Ronnie of Reagan, government is your enemy and the best way, the ONLY way to ensure that the undeserving aren't ripping you off -- illegal immigrants, welfare queens, public employees -- is to take EVERYTHING from EVERYONE.
Except themselves. And their rich benefactors.
Look back to Poland and Lech Walesa and Solidarity... it was LABOR that drove the final nails into the coffin of the Soviet empire. NOT Reagan.
