American Workers Can Learn From Gaddafi 

As Muammar Gaddafi (sic) loses his grip on Libya, one wonders how he was able to hold on for so long. For most of the people living on Earth, the name Gaddafi is synonymous with Libya. So how'd he do it?

Divide and conquer, that's how.

Garner the loyalties of one tribe, then get them to believe that the reason why they are poor is because this other tribe has gamed the system. That way, America's workers in the private sector can take out their rage on public sector workers who have decent benefits, the type of benefits that all workers used to have. That takes the focus away from the big corporations who got tax cuts while regular people go without insurance. Divide and conquer.

Pretty clever, huh?
