Even the WSJ sees it: New Civil War erupts, led by super rich, GOP

Except, of course, it's really about 30 years old now...

New Civil War erupts, led by super rich, GOP Paul B. Farrell - MarketWatch

SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif. (MarketWatch) — Yes, “there’s class warfare, all right,” warns Warren Buffett. “But it’s my class, the rich class, that’s making war, and we’re winning.” Yes, the rich are making war against us. And yes, they are winning. Why? Because so many are fighting this new American Civil War between the rich and the rest.

Not just the 16 new GOP governors in Wisconsin, Michigan, Ohio, Florida, and across America fighting for new powers. Others include: Chamber of Commerce billionaires, Koch brothers, Forbes 400, Karl Rove’s American Crossroads, Grover Norquist’s Americans for Tax Reform — which now has 97% of House Republicans and 85% of the GOP Senators signed on his “no new taxes” pledge — the Tea Party and Reaganomics ideologues.

Thank you, you've made my week.

I've been banging away at getting the word out on the Shock Doctrine for awhile, and still no one has picked up on it...until now.

Great stuff.
