There are some who have been saying for decades that another civil war is coming to the US, and have differed over what it will that causes it to start, but in my mind, one of the thrusts will be for the impoverished, broken middle class worker who will begin a major attack on the public workers, and their unions. The public unions have for far too long, been damaging the cities and states' ability to function, by forcing ever higher taxes to pay for their ever increasing salaries, benefits and pensions - which start for many public workers in their early 40s. This scenario is totally unsustainable, and will lead to a major internal conflict, if I am correct: Editorial: $100K pension club is growing - Sacramento Opinion - Sacramento Editorial | Sacramento Bee Group Shines Light on Hefty Government Pensions - WSJ.com "One of the top 10 pensioners listed is from Sacramento. Donald Gerth, No. 3 on the list, retired in 2003 after 19 years as president of California State University, Sacramento. Gerth receives a $278,555 annual pension, or $23,171.22 a month." This is just fucking insane.
