Political Fearmongering

I don't really want to get into general politics here, but I need to vent about this somewhere.

I stumbled into a conversation with a coworker this week about the job market and the need to hang on to a job. Somehow on her end this turned into a conversation about how bad things will be if Obama gets reelected. According to her, there will be widespread rioting if Obama is reelected, and she is starting to stockpile food and water.

Fucking really? Are we seriously trotting out this pony again? Last time it was that Obama was a muslim and would destroy America if elected. Now there will be riots, although I don't understand why. I was smart enough not to ask.
