More on the debtors' revolt video
Following right along from last night's posting about a putative debtors' revolt in the USA, the video that started the ball rolling seems to be on the verge of going viral. In the 48 hours that it has been on YouTube the Debtors' Revolt Begins Now video has gained just over 60,000 hits. Websites are linking to the short video and encouraging their readers to sign up for the programme as it were. So who is the woman behind it all?
She calls herself Rockerchic4god on YouTube and she has an almost moribund blog under that name on the Blogspot servers. Her real name is believed to be Ann Minch and she and her husband live in Northern California. Ann is a God botherer which is going to lead to credibility problems if this debt revolt movement of hers really starts to take off.
Will it take off? Well, as the above video shows, the American economy is tanking in a big way and we are seeing the return of the tent cities that most people thought had vanished with the end of the Great Depression.
Anything is possible in other words, so let's wait and see.
