While the Rehnquist Court heard less than one antitrust decision a year, on average, between 1988 and 2003, the Roberts Court has heard seven in its first two terms -- and all of them were decided in favor of the corporate defendants.

With this level of frustration being exerted on the general populace, it will be a miracle if any rich person will be alive after the fourteen million person strong mob of economic rebellion starts ripping to pieces the rich minority.

They'll all be safe in Dubai, Switzerland, Monaco, or some other haven, Chris. That's why the rich have private jets and homes in so many different countries, in case they need a quick getaway. They've been playing these financial games for centuries. They always store most of the cash from any country they've looted in offshore banks, and that isn't just so they won't have to pay taxes on it. And you can bet that every dollar they have was changed into Euros or Yen a long time ago.

When the economy collapses, all we'll have is empty skyscrapers presided over by clueless middle managers to take frustrations out on, and I wouldn't advise it. What people need to do instead of rioting and breaking windows, is to march on every city hall and demand that the cities buy up the empty office buildings instead of letting financiers scoop them up for pennies on the dollar, and then turn them into homeless shelters with soup kitchens.

The rich think ahead so there's no reason we can't also.
