I can agree with you last post Hopyard..
My only concern is that it could spread because of cell phones, internet. It does in prisons because of cell phones. My thought is if NY goes crazy ( gangs leading ) that LA could be next or even at the same time. Its just me thinking out loud.
Don"t let stupid be your skill set....
And Shepards we shall be, for Thee, my Lord, for Thee,
Power hath descended forth from Thy hand, So that our feet may swiftly carry out thy command,
And we shall flow a river forth to Thee, And teeming with souls shall it ever be,
If the Union is once severed, the line of separation will grow wider and wider, and the controversies which are now debated and settled in the halls of legislation will then be tried in fields of battle and determined by the sword.
give it a rest you weren't there and are obviously clueless
With the current political climate of the "elite" and "progressives" trying to destroy our society I think that it is entirely possible to have periods where things break down. Just one hiccup in the free welfare system would result in that segment of society targeting any of us whom they feel have something (food, water, whatever) that they want/need. I live seven blocks from the ghetto in my town and they shoot each other on a regular basis over drugs, sex, and other things. If we get to hard times, that segment will reach out and start affecting all of us. The current occupant of the people's house and his cronies are and have been involved in verbal class warfare for some time. The stage is being set and only if we can short circuit the "progressives" will we be able to hopefully stem the tide.
WROL could easily happen.
All it takes is bankruptcy.
If there's no paycheck for the guys risking their lives; they just ain't gonna risk it.
They'll take care of themselves and loved ones, just like the rest of the normal people.
The seeds are there. We just don't know what the ignition will be, but it could happen overnight.
Trust in God and keep your powder dry

Whether you call it Anarchy, WROL, Riots or Civil Unrest, it really doesn't matter. You're just splitting hairs with the terminology. Whether it's large scale or small scale, it's all the same where it's happening at the time.
It has happened before in this country and will happen again. No doubt about it. Some examples? Natural disaster devolving into civil unrest (Katrina). Racially motivated, (Riots in L.A. Watts district, Birmingham, AL, and even Kansas City, Missouri in the mid to late 1960's). Mindless crime spree, also racially motivated, (Rodney King verdict).
Who can forget the events (captured by video and displayed on the news for days) which took place at the intersection of Normandie and Florence following the Rodney King verdict, in which a gang of marauders swarmed the dump truck of Reginald Denny, pulling him from his truck and beating him nearly to death. The graphic scene captured on video from overhead news helicopter, of Damien "Football" Williams caving his head in with a huge chunk of concrete crippling him for life as police who were only a block away were ordered to leave the scene. Looked like anarchy to me!
So, whether it's a small scale, geographically isolated area (one or two neighborhoods) or large scale, (city, state, or nation wide), it really doesn't matter if you're in the middle of it. If you're not prepared, you're going to be in hard times for sure. Maybe even cost you your life.
Will it happen globally? I hope not. But riots are starting to erupt, and spread out on an increasingly larger scale in Europe as they finally, after 50 years have come to the realization that Socialism doesn't work, and slowly try to reign in spending and cut entitlements before there is a complete economic collapse across the entire continent.
Simultaneously, riots are breaking out in the Middle East, for both similar as well as different political reasons.
And here at home? Well, things are getting hairy. I won't get into the political debate about what's going on here in the USA, but we can all see it play out before our eyes, so you tell me? Do you think it will happen here? I think you're pretty naive if you think it can't happen here.
Reginald Denny beating starts at 1:50 on the video! There are other videos as well but start with him already on the ground after the fact.

2. Yes, to an extent we are preparing for the possibility of a break down in society.
3. Storage of food and water, and lots of ammo. Plus, we have family in the hinterlands of Indiana, just 25 minutes away from where we are located at the edge of the hinterlands, where we can fall back to and hole up. It is an easily defensible place with land were we can grow food, where we have stockpiled seeds and other supplies.
Interesting thing to think about
other countries going bankrupt
our country going bankrupt Republicans & Democrtas equally to blame
printing money as fast as we can
goverment won't allow our oil companies to drill our own oil reserves
low food supplies

Youtube dude, nutnfancy, talks about his take on WROL. This is his second installment on this controversial topic (WROL) and the London riots:
nutnfancy's Channel - YouTube - WROL, the resurgence of community
http://www.youtube.com/nutnfancy#p/u/0/b9TvtpydzjI - Mob rules
The way I look at it is this:
The road that we seem to be on terribly resembles other countries that are already at the SHTF stages and I'm sure that we're not aware of half of what thousands of people are going through trying to make it. Most of the time during a protest, riot or whatever you call it, it's localized and people tear up the very towns or cities that they live in and for dumb reasons to most. A week or two goes by and they're back to normal. The "trigger" that people mention, to me, has already been pulled and the damage is done exponentially over time as we remain on the economic course we've set ourselves on.
It's already happening. Those who are already at the breaking point, trying to make ends meet, feed the kids, wonder if they're going to have a place to stay tomorrow, all get thrown "over the edge" every time the price of food goes up $.01 more. So as the price of food, fuel and everything else goes up the day after that, you have that many more people thrown over the edge.
I'm not talking about the "flash mobs" like we've seen at the 7-11. It's a whole lot different than an otherwise normal guy who is now put into a position that he is going to have to beg, steal or borrow to feed his kids because he simply just can't make it now. And the more this happens, the more people are going to remain with their families to protect them from the growing amount of people that are pushed over the edge.
I do think that blanketing this all as anarchy may be a bit harsh but it sure seems that the more money we print, the less our farmers can grow and the fewer jobs that are available can sure put our country in a bad enough of a position to where normal order will be difficult to restore.
So with the trigger already being pulled, we'll just have to see how much damage is done as good people have to struggle to survive and ensure the survival of theirs. If nothing changes, the path that we're on now will most certainly make things worse as we continue. However, unlike 7-11, LA riots, Katrina or the curent situation in GB, the masses will just simply be trying to survive, not snag a shirt or candy bar.

I believe that Katrina was the closest to true anarchy that I have ever seen. In that disaster we had police acting as criminals. When you have the citizens and the police ignoring the laws it is true anarchy.
