The rulers come first. Taxpayers must first bailout the US corporate rulers and there are not enough supplemental funds to serve mere citizens. JP Morgan is seeking funds from citizens right now: http://www.bloomberg.com/news/...over-fdic-funds.html Food stamps take money away from the rulers who demand the transfer of taxpayer funds into their coffers. It is the job of propaganda outlets like Fox News to incite racism, brainwash po’ rednecks so that they vote against their own interests and...

This kind of 'call from the top' is what ignites behavior in others. Typically, these guys themselves of are provocateurs not inclined to 'put themselves in harm's way'. Agitators.
