Interactive Map Of Recent Food Riots And Price Hikes

Tyler Durden's picture

While the Fed refuses to extract its head from deep within the sand of ignorant hubris that only a career in Ivy League education can provide, the world continues to burn, in many places quite literally. For all those who are finding it hard to juggle all the rioting, and confuse their Cairos with their Calcuttas, below we present an interactive map disclosing all recent documented food price hikes, protests, and riots.

Guess this hasn't hit Detroit yet...

Hephasteus's picture

Detroit is hedged with free rent in abandoned buildings.

You can't eat abandoned buildings.

You can eat termites, if your desperate.

Actually, that looks like a bullet hole to me.

Oh regional Indian's picture

Stycho, somehow I doubt a bullet holed face would be smiling?

Friend just got back from a week's stay in Detroit.  Apparently there's no bus / metro transport anymore.  Most of the buses were given to Chicago. 

Why?  Nobody riding the bus.  Why?  The bus riders are unemployed so everyone stays home or walks / rides a bike to get around. 

Perhaps we can do a "car-for-clunker bike" program with China.  We get all their old clunker bikes and just send our vehicles there.  Detroit will be the new Shanghai but without all the skyscrapers.  Before you know it, Motor City will have a K-TV on every corner.  Good franchise opportunity.  Now who's in?

A bit of an exaggeration about Detroit. I live just south of there. They've got a different kind of bus service running through the metro area. As far as down town I can't actually say. The people mover is still running. I refuse to go to Detroit proper. It's a fucking war zone except for basically one street where the stadium and theatres are. And there's not as many people walking as you'd think. Plenty are driving other people's cars around all day long. ees for fun.

DO NOT get lost in Detroit or you may never see your loved ones again. Take a GPS and a bazooka (or Hank). Roughly 20-25% of all homes in Detroit are uninhabited. Crack whore heaven! A bum's delight! Something like 7 out of 10 murders go unsolved. Jack the Ripper luvs him some strippas'!

Thanks for the input.  I'm sure he was exaggerating a little however I'd have to agree with you regarding the downtown area.  He said the place was dead and referred to it as "ground zero."

One of his friends had gotten stabbed at a gas station as he was putting air in his tires.  Luckily he made it out ok and a squad car showed up.  When he asked the officer where in the hell the paramedics were the officer stated he'd probably get to the hospital faster if he went ahead and just drove there.  Go USSA!

Learn to sew or keep duct tape and stapler for medical treatment. But pay obama all your money for health care.

After all our opinons (on a full stomach of food ofour choice) get told. DOES ANYONE HERE have any awareness of the IMF? of the global aid/starvation agenda? of any of this? Make your silly comments. It is coming to you.

Oh regional Indian's picture

Whacko, plenty of awareness around these parts, but it is a miniscule percentage of the population. The US, with it's hugely discredited public school system has purposely dumbed it's population down. 

You can literally chart the rise of rap with the rise of Crap. Crap everywhere. Between peoples ears too.

The tragedy is that it is by design.

Dumb sheeple are far easier to control. No one's fault. Media, main-stream, with limitless funny-money and a clear directive from social programmers, is a terrible tide to with-stand.


WhackoWarner's picture

I read the comments here and it is just so unencouraging. The state of the American educational system is one of dumbing down,. Witness the comments.


There is no way to cure this total ignorance. And this is what  supposedly leads the "free world"? People who are so ignorant. No idea where it is on the map where anyone else exists? Let alone any understanding of any other culture; let alone any understanding of anything. And all ignorance by either criminal politicians or idiot religions;.


This country teaches their children nothing. They have no idea of where any other country is on the map; let aloine anyt understanding of any alternate culture. My way or the highway. JUST WATCH some USA TV and you will see the level of education they offer. They can't even speak English. And I am looking at the supposed English speaking people...."I axed hime to do this; I axed him to do that" These people who are leading the free world are ill-educated buffoons

At least 1M U.S. children are homeschooled or are privately educated at home (this would include my kids).

Subjects learned cannot be compared to a government school.

To wit: one year we lived in both Mexico and the U.S. traveling back & forth with our privately educated kids. Talk about an education they won't forget...

Further, one son began designing circuit boards at age 12.

Not all U.S. schoolchildren are ignorant.

Okay kids...teachable moment: let's learn how to make...a bribe.

Once the demonrats are done with this country in league with their NWO buddies that will  be a useful course..

STFU. I'm an American, and I've got a wall-poster of the entire world from MSF whom I donate to regularly.

I'm guessing you're from one of those countries they have to write the names of off to the side because they're too damn small to write the name on directly.

You wanna slander an entire people? Fine.

We'll leave your ignorant asses for whomever we most likely saved you from in the 20th century, ungrateful twits.

Twats.....You said twits.....Just thought I'd fix that for ya.

Well watching TV and making an assumption off of that is your first mistake.

Without SNAPs I suspect the USA would see a lot of red doohickeys too.

Zyroh's picture

since the teapartiers are writing legislation to make sure the bonds are paid off first, you'll see plenty of red doohickies soon enough.

Sorry to kick it off on an off topic - but just got a better look at the CBO's #'s:

they expect tax revenues to increase from $2,228B in '11 to $3,090B in '13.  That is a 40% increase in tax revenue.  After tax revenue stalled out from '01 to '10 at $2T (high of $2.6T and low of $1.78 during all of '00's) they expect tax revenue to go $500B beyond any previous and they expect this will have no impact on nominal GDP of 5.1%. 

Fuckingcredible.  Who has the balls to put their name on this piece of trash?

trav7777's picture

this is insane...they're expecting revenues to jump by 40% in the span of 2 years?  Did we invent coldfusion or something?

scaleindependent's picture

Where you been?

It was invented in the University of Bologna a couple of days ago.

dark pools of soros's picture

actually it was 'discovered' but then quickly misplaced

hambone's picture

They also expect spending will only grow by 2% ($3708B to $3794B).  So, a net $862B pulled out in taxes from '11 to '13 and we have nominal 5% GDP. 

Ohhh, and interest paid on the public debt (esp. short rates) will jump to over $450B (currently paying $200B) another $250B out of the economy from '11 to '13. 

Ohh...ohh, and States and Muni's will be cutting back by another $100 to $200B?

So, net net, we'll remove $1.3T ('11 to '13) from the economy (just about 10% of the entire economy is pulled out of circulation) and we still grow by 5%!!!.  How fucking stupid are people to believe this shit!!! 

Fucktacular!!!  Whatever spook is reading ZH, give me my labotomy now...let's just get it done with so I can fit in with the rest of FuckMerica.

hambone's picture

Where is the fucking backlash over something so incredibly stupid!!!  How can this be taken and reported as a "non-partisan" statement to guide our government???  Did anybody read the fucking thing???  Have we gone over the edge where anything can be said by authorities is taken at face value???

Folks - read the fucking report...we are crashing ---> I mean we are in free fall.  Explain how it is otherwise...Harry Wanger, any other dipshit apologist, please come along now and explain how it's all going be all right.

Cause I think we are a controlled inside job.

Shaddup, I got chips, dip and Dancing With the Stars on the idiot box.

And Obama is going to make my house payment, my car payment and I have a purple unicorn coming in the mail.

I heard the Teleprompter Voice.

"We can out innovate, out educate and out produce any one on the Planet"

Yah you heard the man - But I was looking at the stars and could not figure which planet he was taking about.

But Uranus came close.

snowball777's picture

okay, here's the situation...

we'll be killing off most of the people over 55 shortly, we can't afford to keep their dicks hard, hearts pumping, etc so they need to go.

college education will be federally financed at very modest interest rates, but neglecting to pay makes you immediately eligible for the draft for the war in <country with hungry brown people>.

some of that hangover inventory in the RE space will be removed by random fires from the riots, that will help even out demand.

the tax burden will be shifted from personal to corporate/hedgie income and financial fraud will become punishable by death. some of the more far-gone gamble-holics will do it anyway.

the wise will become much more conservative with their bullets.

wretch's picture

Dude.  That's not how we win the future.  Now shut up and innovate!

Theos's picture

Do you really think anyone actually reads anything anymore?

They cant set up a fucking TV, let alone read their utility bill. And you want them to understand the terms "outlay", and concepts like "percentage"?

Get with the times dude.


(im sorry, we're fucking fucked)


Zyroh's picture

that's when they getcha'.  after you've finally submitted, when the fear leaves you and all you feel is the peace and love that big brother provides.  then BAM, one bullet, in the back of the head, just as soon as you weren't expecting it anymore.
