The elite are losing their influence over society.

As predicted in these pages many times, when the global debt Ponzi reaches its limit, one of the early signs will be that elite begin to lose their special treatment and are shown to be mortal men after all.   Along these lines we now see Tiger Woods getting busted for smoking some serious weed and then taking a ride in his car.  At least I assume it was weed because he did not have alcohol in his system and he was really out of it.

What's important about this isn't just that Tiger's hundreds of millions of dollars of net worth and fancy lawyers didn't save him from being arrested and taken to jail.   The real news here was the release of this very embarrassing and damaging video.  The cops did not have to do that.  This kind of thing is going to cost Woods millions of dollars in sponsorships by companies who are looking for good role model symbols.  But the cops are now looking to please their real masters, the tax payers, and so the cops released the video for 2 reasons:

1) they didn't want to be accused of racially picking on Woods.  Clearly they did not.  The whole thing was professionally handled and kudos go out to these particular cops for their handling of this situation.  I am not generally full of praise for the police but fair is fair.

2) the herd wants fresh elite meat.  The herd is in a bad way and is tired of hearing about the lifestyles of the rich and famous.  The herd wants to see the elite of this country burn.  It is not necessarily fair but the herd is driven by emotion and emotions are running hot right now.  I'm still waiting for fist fights to break out on the congressional floor but I believe we will see them at some point.
