Revolution on the Horizon
By the late 1780s, it was becoming increasingly clear that the system in place under the Old Regime in France simply could not last. It was too irresponsible and oppressed too many people. Furthermore, as the result of the Enlightenment, secularism was spreading in France, religious thought was becoming divided, and the religious justifications for rule—divine right and absolutism—were losing credibility. The aristocracy and royalty, however, ignored these progressive trends in French thought and society. Rather, the royals and nobles adhered even more firmly to tradition and archaic law. As it would turn out, their intractability would cost them everything that they were trying to preserve.
The Bourgeoisie
Although many accounts of the French Revolution focus on the French peasantry’s grievances—rising food prices, disadvantageous feudal contracts, and general mistreatment at the hands of the aristocracy—these factors actually played a limited role in inciting the Revolution. For all of the hardships that they endured, it wasn’t the peasants who jump-started the Revolution. Rather, it was the wealthy commoners—the bourgeoisie—who objected most vocally to the subpar treatment they were receiving. The bourgeoisie were generally hardworking, educated men who were well versed in the enlightened thought of the time. Although many of the wealthier members of the bourgeoisie had more money than some of the French nobles, they lacked elite titles and thus were subjected to the same treatment and taxation as even the poorest peasants. It was the bourgeoisie that would really act as a catalyst for the Revolution, and once they started to act, the peasants were soon to follow.

These Bourgeoisie people are like todays middleclass and working poor. I take it they got tired of carrying the load while their 1% lived like royalty.
You are seriously confused, if we have a revolution it will be to throw the liberal elitists bums out once and for all. No rich person is keeping any of these welfare slugs down, they're free to succeed as far as their talent, initiative, drive, hard work, etc. will take them.

What you and all libs expect is for someone else to give you a great paying job you don't deserve. I've been poor, I started very poor, I didn't like it and i did something about it.

Good night Calvin.

Here is the fallout from turtleman not checking his political ads and making a big ass of himself:

University of Kentucky Sends Cease and Desist Letter to Mitch McConnell

The University of Kentucky has released a statement concerning Senator Mitch McConnell using footage of Julius Randle in an advertisement.

McConnell’s campaign replaced the Duke footage that was mistakenly put into an ad with the above Randle picture.

The University of Kentucky consulted with the NCAA earlier today regarding footage of Julius Randle in a Mitch McConnell advertisement. Although the use of the student-athlete’s image in the advertisement is not permissible, because it was done without the knowledge or permission of the university or the student-athlete, it is not an NCAA violation. The University of Kentucky has sent a cease and desist letter and will continue to take appropriate measures to ensure improper usage of a student-athlete’s name, image or likeness is prevented.

So much for that UL law degree. He also went to UK.

Pretty bad when he offends blacks, Hispanics, women, Veterans and the BIG BLUE NATION.

hahaha UK Fanatics won't forget. haha

What you and other ignorant libs want has already happened, it happened in the USSR, in Cuba, in N. Korea, in China. In fact it happened in Venezuela, is happening now and venezuela is a disaster, try getting ALL the news, I suggest Fox.

Shortages of food, of toilet paper, the basic necessities, that's what YOUR revolution would get us, complete collapse of the economy. In a oil rich nation.

You know nothing of the French revolution, you just proved it. For starters we have no kings, dukes, etc. What we do have now is a president and a Senate leader who have done absolutely nothing to increase employment. In fact, they stifle job creation at every turn.
Economics doesn't change based on the form of Government. The French economy of 1789 was very similar to ours and for the same reasons......Educate yourself.....

WHO PAYS THE INCOME TAXES IN AMERICA? The list of Democrats complaining the ... We are going to take back America in 2012.~~~~~~~~~ Exclusive ...

allow me to share some enlightening data on who pays what income tax in the United States. We have a progressive (or regressive if you choose to look it the tax code correctly) in 2009, the latest available figures on income tax collection:

• The top 1%(1.4 million) paid 40.42% on income of $2.8 trillion.
• The top 2.5%( 5.65 million) paid 20.2%
• The top 5%( 7 million) paid 60%
• The top 10% paid 71.2% of all income taxes on income of $4.227 trillion.

Collected taxes :$794 billion

The bottom 50% of American taxpayers paid only 7.89 % of all Federal taxes collected !!

The above data was provided by Turbo

Whether you like it or not, the rich, the productive, the innovators, etc. are responsible for the luxurious lifestyle you live.
There you go again. Why does your dumbass think the top pays most of the taxes? They get most of the money Dumbdumb. The top 1% gets 19% of all income. The top 10% gets 50% of all income. The top 20% get 80% of all income each year. So would do you want paying the taxes? The 20% getting 80% of all the income or the 80% of wage earners getting the left over 20% of income

In the meantime you could at least accept some reality, Il Douche, Reid and the dems have failed us massively. If not for the demorat authored mortgage meltdown this empty suit could never have been elected.

They have given us trillion dollar deficits, no jobs and the rich getting even richer.

The one thing that Il Douche could do to create some actual jobs he refuse to do.

The French system was basically the same as ours. Read a History Book.

In addition, the eighteenth century saw the intrusion of capitalism into everyday life. Thanks to a large expansion of overseas trade and a longer-term development of domestic trade, the money economy experienced continued growth. Although self-sufficiency or local exchange remained the preponderant way of economic life, these incursions of capitalism began drawing everyone into some form of regional and even international exchange
http://chnm.gmu.edu/revolution/chap1a.html
I would have never guessed capitalism to be one of the causes of the French Revolution.
For most of our existence, 90% of us lived on small farms, barely having enough to eat, never venturing further than 10 miles from the place of our birth, the industrial revolution and capitalism changed all of that. They enabled you and I to live in the virtual paradise many of us live in, Even our poor are rich by the standards of billions of others on this planet.

The lack of jobs?

The high cost of food and gas?

Yes you did. Quite witty. Thanks for the laughs. I thought I would stop in and show what an ignorant fool our career politician turtleman is. Still laughing. Plan on being in my big comfy bed they obsess about and watching Comedy Central.

I especially liked what President Carter said about women and the Bible.

It may collapse and you can thank the dems and Il Douche for it. The stock market is a house of cards, propped up by the Feds hundreds of billions and Il Douche's trillion dollar deficits.
Somehow I've always managed, on my own, I might add.
