Possibly the next MENA country to get familiar with, Oman launches arrests ahead of planned demonstrations on Friday. In power for 30 years, Sultan Qaboos has been trying to quell unrest by doling out cash and jobs. The country is a relatively minor producer of oil.

    Maybe if we had some UNREST here in the USA, we could get some jobs and cash for the unemployed.

     

    There are STILL 16+ million unemployed (if you add in the "discouraged" people that the government eliminates from the unemployed count), the same number that we had TWO WHOLE YEARS AGO!

     

    Meanwhile, the stock market has doubled and the banksters are sitting fat and happy, lighting their after dinner cigars with $100 bills.
