This is a serious question to all readers of The Market Ticker.
Where is your personal breaking point?
No, I’m not asking how far you have to be pushed before you “go postal” and commit random acts of violence. That’s not a question to ask in polite company, even though for virtually everyone, there is such a point.
No, I’m asking how much abuse you have to have personally served upon you by the banksters and other scam artists in this country before you have had enough, and start doing unto the other guy – because he has done you.

The natives are getting restless. Billy Beck gives us the Quote of the Day:
I am beginning to consider this year since January as a fairly close comparison to events elsewhere in 1917, with the temporal slipped-disk of George Bush as Alexander Kerensky for eight years. If we take Obama as the first post-American president, then Bush was the president of a provisional government. In any case, the slow-motion revolution of Amsoc is no longer slow-motion. We’re living a moment in history that will reverberate through history as the turn of a great wheel, into precisely what cannot be completely foretold right now, but it must surely be enormous in its consequences.
We are more and more in it, every day, and none it is anything good for anyone. As the struggle intensifies, every person’s principles will be more clearly illuminated, right down to the street-level where you live. Pay close attention, and keep both hands on the wheel.
