Mark my words...the bluer the state and bigger it's welfare-and-union-dependent population, the more violent some of these protests are going to get in the near future (this one was huge, but largely peaceful). Nothing makes a leftist or welfare-slave burn their own city down faster than telling them "the state is out of money to pay you for doing nothing". For crying out loud, just look at Greece for your best example of what NYC, New Jersey, Cali, Michigan, etc will look like soon.
