The civil unrest is most likely to erupt among Hispanics and African Americans. The unemployment rate of Hispanics is 11.4% versus 5.0% in November 2007. It is doubtless far worse, as many Hispanics worked “under the table” in the housing industry. The unemployment rate of African Americans is 13.3%, the highest since 1993, and up from an all-time low of 7.0% in 2000. The urban areas of the United States are a powder keg, with automatic weapons available to anyone. Policemen are being slaughtered at a record pace. Mexico is on the verge of becoming a failed state. Drug lords are running the country. Its oil fields are in rapid decline and it will no longer be an exporter of oil within 5 years. The Mexican government depends on oil for 40% of its tax revenues. The collapse of Mexico’s government, extreme power of murderous drug lords, and worldwide depression will drive millions of poor towards the U.S. border. The anti-immigrant feelings in the U.S. continue to grow as more white Americans lose their jobs. This is an explosive combination that will eventually require military and National Guard intervention.
There are two other hot button issues which will increase the anxiety in this country. Guns and ammo are selling like hotcakes. The combination of apprehension that Obama and his Democratic majority will put restrictions on gun ownership and the severe economic downturn has led to an exorbitant increase in gun sales. Ruger has a $48 million backlog of guns on order. Many citizens in the Western states live by the motto: You can have my gun when you pry it from my cold, dead fingers. Any effort by the Obama administration to restrict gun ownership will be met with major resistance. The Tax Day Tea Parties revealed the other hot button issue for many Americans. When the Bush tax cuts expire in 2010 and Obama institutes his Cap & Trade energy tax, the economy will receive a double whammy. At that point the failed economic policies and higher taxes will lead to consternation and resentment throughout the land. The unending economic turmoil throughout the world will result in protests and anger in many countries. The more disturbing issue is how politicians will try to divert the attention of the masses through the use of an external threat.
Young people voted for Obama in large numbers, I don't think Yers have the same hatred in the government that Generation Jones has. Xers are a sort of drop out generation, they don't particularly care about what's going on with these tea parties. They already had their rebellion in the 80s, early 90s and have now settled.
I don't believe Yers are "against" anything, they just attempt to work around it. We don't have that anger that Xers and Boomers had, enough to make us revolt.
Generation Z is going to be the next Artist generation and due to that the next Prophecy generation hasn't even been born yet and wouldn't be 18 by 2020. So who's going to rebel by then?
I don't think this will result in rebellion, but perhaps reinvention? That's how I tend to think of Yers, they reinvent rather than rebel because that's not in the nature considering the environment we grew up in. At least that's our form of "rebellion," I suppose.

All firearms, short barrel shotguns, short barrel rifles, silencers, and firearms with a bore under 1.5" are deemed exempt from the NFA if they're made in MT.
And they're exempt from the 1968 GCA as well, which means no serial numbers and no NICS check either.
We have seen a dozen or so states in the last few months pass token Sovereignity legislation - but this law, which was evidently signed into law in Montana by the Democratic Governor of that state yesterday, goes much further.
Here is how I see this progessing :
1) at first the feds ignore this law
2) then the feds go into MT and arrest someone as a trial run to see how the sate govt reacts
3) either the state backs down or the Feds do - this time
4) then they try again and this time the ATF brings their A-level enforcers and the state of MT sends their state police - this time someone, probably on both sides - gets killed
5) Fed govt sends the ATF in again - only this time with US Army troops backing them up
6) MT governor responds with Montana Natl Guard troops
7) Fed govt attempts to 'fire' the governor of MT - or somehow destroy his ability to control the Nat Guard
8) Governor/Legislature of MT decrees that they will no longer remit ANY tax monies to the Federal govt
9) Surrounding states of WY and ID plus supportive states like NV + TX - all step in to provide support (troops/money/supplies/political power) to the governor of MT
10) Now you essentially have a minor level civ war
How long this takes depends on how many times one side or the other backs downs or retreats. And this will spread to other Fed gov programs like NAIS - that farm thing and a lot of other Fed gov boondoggles.
Fourth Turning baby. This is the first step towards the 4T Crisis war IMO - right here, right now.
