70 Reasons To Mourn For America

Every single year, Americans take the day off on July 4th and they celebrate everything that is good about America.  We tend to be very proud of our achievements and we generally are not shy about talking about them.  For example, today CNN is running a piece entitled “100 great things about America“.  And you know what?  There are a lot of great things about this country.  I am not afraid to say that I love America.  In many ways it has been a great light for the rest of the world since it was founded.  However, things have changed.  The United States has greatly fallen from where it once was.  The truth is that America is rotting and decaying in thousands of different ways.  We need to repent and go back to doing the things that once made this country great.  The road that we are currently on is a path that leads to national suicide.  So to be honest now is not really the time for happy celebrations.  Rather, now is the time for weeping, mourning and deep reflection.  We need to turn from our profligate ways and we need to return to the fundamental principles that the early Americans understood so well.  As a nation we need to look into the mirror and understand just how bad our decline has been.  We are a complete and total mess, and it is time to admit that.

The following are 70 reasons to mourn for America….

1. Most Americans know much more about Kim Kardashian than they do about the Federal Reserve.

2. The way that the TSA abuses travelers is a national embarrassment.  One TSA agent recently sifted her finger through the ashes of someone’s dead grandfather and then spilled his ashes all over the airport floor.

3. Many young people in America are willing to wait in line to pay a 400% markup on new Kanye West sneakers, but most of those same young people cannot even tell you how many members of Congress there are.

4. Many Americans seem to be far more interested in American Idol and Dancing With The Stars than they are in dealing with the very serious economic, political and moral problems facing this nation.

5. A recent survey found that 61 percent of all Americans believe that “paying your fair share of taxes” is being patriotic.

6. We currently have the worst president in U.S. history, and there is a chance that we may have to endure another 4 years of his insanity.

7. We have a Supreme Court that appears to have very little respect for the U.S. Constitution.

8. The financial center of our country, Wall Street, is full of psychopaths.

9. America has the highest incarceration rate and the largest total prison population in the entire world by a very wide margin.

10. The highways of America are rapidly being turned into a high tech prison grid.

11. American children today are very spoiled, very undisciplined and most of them wouldn’t know a day of hard work if it came up and bit them on the behind.

12. Today, approximately 25 million American adults are still living with their parents.

13. Back in 1962, only 13 percent of all Americans were obese.  Today, approximately 36 percent of all Americans are obese.

33. The U.S. healthcare system is a complete and total mess, and now Obamacare is going to make things much, much worse.

Please feel free to post a comment with your opinion below….

  • The Ponderer

    Michael,

    First off I would like to thank you for this and your economic collapse blog I read them both everyday.In this post I am questioning how young people are able to afford marked up sneakers. Also when do you think the economy will collapse?

    • Michael

      I believe that the economic collapse will not be a single event. But I do believe that another “wave” is rapidly approaching and I am deeply concerned about the fall and winter of this year.

      Michael

      • Scott

        Michael, what about a sudden rise in interest rates? I agree it won’t be a single event but that could really start the dominoes falling.

        • Michael

          Yes, there will be times when things get much worse very quickly, but there isn’t going to be one “event” and then it will all be over with.

            Reason 71:
            – Americans are indeed a bunch of stupid animals easy to manipulate and subdue. These brutes are the offspring of failed generations, thus they could certainly be labeled as subhumans.

      • REED RICHARDS

        Michael,

        THE TWO MOST DESTRUCTIVE FORCES AND THE TWO MOST DESTRUCTIVE FACTIONS EVER DEVISED:

        FORCES: 1. RELIGION 2. IDEOLOGY (POLITICAL, SOCIAL, ETC.)

        FACTIONS: 1. LIBERALS 2. CONSERVATIVES (INCLUDES LIBERTARIANS)

        As I read your articles about startling stats about Amerikan decline one after the other, I must assume that it has not occured to you in the slighest that you, as well as your opposite war party minions called the liberals are responsible for this mess in every way, shape, or form.

        You lament and you talk about how this is a time to mourn. Well, this is a mess of your making, the making of your predecessors, and of your successors who do not have the presence of mind or the force of intellect to abandon the twin lunacies that are called the ideology and the worst bane of all called religion. Obamney will win in 2012 and that will spell the doom for what is left of amerika.

        Personally, at this point, one simply has to sit back and just laugh at all of this. The impending destruction that the world faces could have been avoided, if the populations of the world collectively had at least two working brain cells to rub together………………

      • Dylan

        A friend in the banking industry wrote to me that we’re heading for a financial collapse in about 6 months. And, that was a month ago!

        • Michael

          I have been hearing a lot of things like this.

          Did he say anything else?

          Michael

          • Guido

            The experts all over the world are starting to predict recession in late-August/September. September is the highest month for financial crises. An economist representing the American chemical industry stated chemical purchases, and thus manufacturing, are down. Bundesbank predicted recession. And other experts are chiming in. We’re probably on the cusp of taking a big hit.

    • Alyssa

  • TimeHasCome

    I have to agree with Gerald Celente in all his years he has never seen America like this . We are a very much divided nation . Go stand at your nearest 7-11 , do you see the people going in and out ? I this the America of the last century ? Very sad indeed.

  • Buzzy Watts

    I want to expose our value system for what it is, and to this end propose the following social policy/experiment: the national rank. Under this system, everyone has their own unique place on a list of 300 million. One guy would be #1, one guy would be #300,000,000, and the rest of us would be in between. No two people could have the same number.

    One’s place on the list would be computed by the IRS using the information supplied on our tax forms: total net worth; average yearly income; number, age, and brand name of all vehicles owned; inflation-adjusted dollar value of all social services received; size and value of home (if owned); etc.

    Most people would react negatively, indeed with disgust, when asked what they thought about this proposal. But that’s the whole point–to make people reconsider what matters to them.

    • Guido

      Actually, I think a lot of people would welcome the idea-they would lie about their number, hate people with higher numbers, and look down on all the people with lower numbers.
      Oh, it would make this country interesting, too.
      Women would probably only date men with higher numbers.
      Men with higher numbers could cruise for easy women in lower numbers.
      Kids would laugh and taunt kids whose families were low number families.
      Crooks would use the interweb to track and attack high number families.
      Cops would give special treatment to higher numbers, too.

      It’s unworkable though-too many variables and too much change.

  • Nathan Nigel Havers

    A few random thoughts:

    This week I heard from some very wealth and successful people in California that “Evangelical Christians should be put in camps.” Can you imagine?

    Our nation is retarded. Did you ever see the morons on Good Morning America jumping up and down holding their signs? I saw Justin Bieber singing on Good Morning America and he grabbed his crotch twice. This is America?

    This article was depressing to read, but we are lucky to have one of the best and most important journalists in the world running this website.

    For all America has done to hurt other nations like Rhodesia, spreading depleted uranium all over Iraq and Afghanistan, abandoning UNITA and the Afrikaners, abandoning the Hmong, abandoning the Kurds to a certain extent after Gulf War I and many other allies like the Montagnards or the Contras … it is all coming back to us. We are a nation with NO HONOR. Karma is real and it is coming around.

    After 9/11 Planned Parenthood offered free abortions to help people cope. 50 million abortions? God help this sick country.

    I just don’t know what to say. It is July 4th and we should be proud, not ashamed of a nation that leads the world is so many negative categories. We are a nation that gives MFN status to China, murders our children, takes all kinds of drugs, spits at God, hates Christ and then waves the flag.

    Craven, sick, Godless, Christ-less, evil, foresaken … drunk, porn, violent video games, no respect, no traditions. Has their ever been a people more unworthy of their history than modern Americans?

    • Kev

      Don’t be too harsh on your country.Over the pond we have one of the most tyranical despotic regimes in the world.The genius of our rotten establishment is that can do it so very craftily and with a subtle smirk the populace doesn’t even look up from their gruel.Our hands are stained way deeper than yours.

      • Michael

        Yes, I will agree with you there.

        By the way, if anyone is interested my wife and I are now taking guest posts on one of our prepper-related websites….

  • Gary2

    I can think of at least 70 republicans that cause me to mourn for America.

    • A concerned young AmeriCan Patriot

      And I can think of an infinite number of people fro both parties that make me mourn for America. Gary, it is not a party vs. party thing. Rather, we are all Americans, and instead of fighting, we should find some common ground between liberals and conservatives (not the false ones in congress), like the fact that we need tariffs, and work from there, attempting to find a solution to all of America’s problems, instead of the constant arguing in washington over matters that do not matter, and instead of the government attempting to socialize everything. We are all Americans. It is time we realized this, stop our political infighting, and worked together to solve our problems, after all, that’s what we’ve always done.
      -Young Patriot

      • Gary2

        I would gladly work with conservatives if they were not so bat shit crazy. Its hard to work with irrational people like conservatives.

        • A concerned young AmeriCan Patriot

          And I would gladly work with liberals if they all didn’t generalize us as a bunch of buck toothed hillbillies (not saying that’s a bad thing). Really Gary, its not one party or the other that is inherently stupid/uncompromising, it’s people from both parties. I’m willing to lay aside party loyalties and do what I view as best for America. Many people (repubs and dems) aren’t though, and that’s the problem with this country; no one wants to work together, as we are all blinded by hatred, party bias, and lies spread by the media.

          • Gary2

            I still can’t figure out why the tea billies hate Obama care so much, get least they can get teeth.

          • A Concerned young AmeriCan Patriot

            It is exactly that ignorance of libs toward conservatives and our goals that is the reason why we cannot work together. If you would actually listen to a conservative point of view for once, instead of saying brainless trash; you might actually learn something, and we could work together.

    “Florida Lifeguard Fired for Trying to Save Drowning Man Outside of His Zone”

    http://news.yahoo.com/florida-lifeguard-fired-trying-save-drowning-man-outside-165236910–abc-news-topstories.html

    • Michael

      Absolutely incredible.

      Michael

    • mondobeyondo

      What is the job of a lifeguard? To save the life of a swimmer in trouble.
      That’s exactly what that lifeguard did, and he was fired.
      So, technically, you can be fired for doing your job?!?!
      Doesn’t matter what his “zone” or “restricted area” was – the guy saved a drowning man!! This sounds very similar to that case in San Francisco (was it last year?) where paramedics stood by and watched a man drown in the bay because “they couldn’t break the rules” to save him.

      You know, the Twilight Zone is actually starting to make sense now.

    Regarding the picture of the Iwo flag raising at the end; here is a quote by myself”The only true heroes in Washington are the ones emblamized in stone, in the war memorials.”

        Actually Xander, I am, all you are is a troll who will get nowhere in life, and must compensate by attempting to lower other’s views of themselves on the internet. It is pathetic. Move out of mom and dad’s basement, do some research, and make an intelligent comment for once, instead of just slandering everybody for made up reasons and lies.

          dude-you got owned by xander. Time to put on your orthopedic shoes as you dawg now stand corrected

          • A concerned young AmeriCan Patriot

            No gary, I did not get owned by xander, rather I just told him to come back and talk when he could form a decent argument or go troll somewhere else. And I can assure you whole-heartedly that I am a patriot
            -Young Patriot

          • Gary2

            Dog–whether or not you think it, xander owned you big time. You probably don’t get it.

          • A Concerned young AmeriCan Patriot

            I believe I “owned” xander gary, all he said was that I am not a patriot (which I am), whereas I told him to stop trolling and add some facts to his knowledge basis. So once again Gary, you have your facts askew…

    I think we will see a collapse by summers end; prepare people. Its going to get ugly.

  • Keith

    I would post some upbeat, optimistic saying here but at the moment, I’m not feeling too upbeat and positive. I keep thinking about the hideous politicians we have but that’s not what is depressing me; What is depressing is to think that majorities vote to put them there….time after time after time. If Congress seems to always have a nineteen percent approval rating, why don’t we have an eighty-one percent turnover at election time?

    National suicide began with the removal of prayer to God in public schools in 1961.
    Since then ,even with all the billions wasted on education our children have become dumber, brainwashed,godless and sexual perversion,abuse,etc. has started younger and is everywhere.
    That was planned by the evil ones who have long ago taken over the nation.
    Those who chase after lying idols like Romney are ignorant of the reality that he is the fall guy of the Globalists just as McCain was in the last election.

    God is judging this nation as the fires out in west Sodom land during gay pride month and storms that left millions without power attest.
    The godless Orwellian camp came up with a new name, ‘derecho’ to replace ‘act of God’for what is the finger of God on this wicked nation.

      you’re just mad that your particular religion is no longer being pushed onto school children

      can’t you Christians teach your children how to pray at home and in your church without using the power of the state???

      fires out in west Sodom land during gay pride month? wow, god needs to aim better

  • Jodi

    We elect corrupt politicians and the reasons why is this happening? Because we are fat and lazy and we are afraid of losing our reality TV and free stuff, that is why.
    It is time to put our money into charities that matter. mercuryone.org, freedomworks.org, etc. We must fight for our freedom.

    • hankhill

      1. All politicians are corrupt, for they operate within a system that cannot be decontaminated by idealistic campaign promises quickly silenced, or abandoned once they are in office.
      2. At the national level, and often at the state level, elections are rigged.
      3. “Our” money is in reality THEIR money, and it’s not worth the paper it’s not printed on anyway.
      4. You are fighting a battle which was lost nearly 100 years ago with the institution of the federal reserve (central bank), and the system of cradle to grave debt slavery called the “birth certificate”…

  • Gary2

    I bought all of Reagan’s shtick about “trickle-down.” Wish I had known then what I know now. We’ve been lowering the MARGINAL tax rates on the 1% since the Eisenhower administrations.

    Top Marginal Tax rates 1916 – 2011

    http://www.whereistheoutrage.net/wordpress/2012/03/08/marginal-tax-rates/

    NOTHING ever “trickled down.” The 1% just used those tax breaks to buy both parties and the media.

    Billionaire Nick Hanauer:

    “Raise Taxes on Rich to Reward True Job Creators”

    “……When businesspeople take credit for creating jobs, it is like squirrels taking credit for creating evolution. In fact, it’s the other way around.
    It is unquestionably true that without entrepreneurs and investors, you can’t have a dynamic and growing capitalist economy. But it’s equally true that without consumers, you can’t have entrepreneurs and investors. And the more we have happy customers with lots of disposable income, the better our businesses will do.
    That’s why our current policies are so upside down. When the American middle class defends a tax system in which the lion’s share of benefits accrues to the richest, all in the name of job creation, all that happens is that the rich get richer.
    And that’s what has been happening in the U.S. for the last 30 years. ….”

      Every possible political combination has been tried including all Republicans and all Democrats in both Houses and a like President yet we continue to march on the same path of globalization at our expense.

      What does this tell you?

      • Gary2

        That republicans suck???

        • Kevin

          Gary2

          I’m one of the few that treat you seriously and your above reply did not address the obvious issue I was making.

          The fact is every possible political combination has been tried to no avail. The Democrats had both Houses and the Presidency and nothing changes. Democratic Presidents supported “Free Trade” which has eviscerated the middle class going as far as being leaders in that cause. They’re no different than the Republicans they so scorn.

          Logically one must infer that the body politic have no real control over their elected officials on the major issues that would redirect US policy away from globalism and in favor of the US and it’s people.

          The Right / Left banter is a diversion to keep the masses occupied.

          • Gary2

            If Obama had not been so conservative and we had real progressives like Bernie Sanders instead of the blue dogs the dems would be a lot better.

          • Kevin

            Gary2

            My point is that you don’t have that; why? A lot better (which is not there) is a moot point as long as they are still putting globalism ahead of the interests of the US people; and they do; why? Dennis Kucinich (who was set up to loose his primary) on the left is scorned by the Democrats because he attempts to put the US people first. Ron Paul is scorned by the Republicans for the same reason.

            With every political combination tried that one would think would reverse the globalist trend and put the American people first “We The People” have zero effective control over “Our” government.

            The body politic keeps chasing it’s tail in the useless Democrat verses Republican debate.

      Something trickled down but it was not wealth, that much is for sure.

      So… you where a conservative?

      Guess your opinions on them comes from personal experience! :D

  • phillip

    It’s interesting how many articles I read that have fantastic points and then that one insignificant point.

    #3 “how many members of Congress”

    “The Number of Representatives shall not exceed one for every thirty Thousand.”Article I, Section 2.

    If this is different now, then the number of Congressmen becomes even more arbitrary.

    What is Congress DOING?

    If I know how many there are, what affect will that have on Obama Care? What affect will that have on TSA?

    “I can count them with a pointed stick.”

    Oh goodie! But what are they DOING??

    “I think there’s 400 and something.”

    But what about POLICY?

    “Or is it 500?”

    AHHHHHH!

    just wanted to note at the beginning of the year your website theeconomiccollapseblog.com was ranked just over 7000 as the most popular website in america, now its just over 6200, people are looking for answers, thanks for providing them. i personally use your articles and the comments as motivation to keep on prepping when i feel like i have no more energy to do anything. articles like this remind me that very bad things are right around the corner. calm before the storm.

    • Michael

      Thanks for those numbers. Yes, both sites continue to grow in popularity and I am so thankful for that. I work so hard on them and it makes my heart glad to know that people really appreciate them. People are searching for answers that they are not getting from the mainstream media, and I am trying to do my best to tell the truth.

    We cannot expect our nation to flourish when every single day there is a relentless holocaust of unborn children going on in our very midst. A nation that sows such evil cannot expect to reap anything but evil.

    Watch this “Educator” from CA and other STUPID Americans who don’t know what the 4th of July is even about! Start this video at 15:36 this is a story out of Minnesota where a local reporter asks people what we are celebrating on the 4th of July note the Social Studies teacher from CA and the lady with two college degree’s who have no clue what so ever!

    For me,the 4TH of July, is a day of mourning,because this is NOT the America that it used to be or even supposed to be.I have nothing to celebrate this day,because WE are NOT a FREE COUNTRY,rather we live in a CORPOROATE FASCIST DICTATORSHIP STATE,that has the people DECIEVED into thinking that we are free.The rest of the world sees us as a very EVIL IMPERIAL POWER,and a murderous country.We saw Hitler and Stallin as murderous Freaks,the rest of the world sees us that way.In the name of AMERICA,we have killed millions of people around the GLOBE,and foe what?TO MAKE A FEW PEOPLE WEALTHIER.The majority of the people here support this type of a murderous government and feel as they are doing the right thing.Both puppet presidential candidates Bush and Obamma are WAR CRIMINALS,and so are the other presidents before them,and many Americans see them as dignataries.Besides murdering people in other countries,we have murdered millions of people in this country,by abortions,medications and assasinations of innocent people here.Our 2 canidate choices in November are Obamma & McRommney.To me it is like an election between Joseph Stalin & Adolf Hitler (2 murderous FREAKS).This election is like a FREAK SHOW, like the good patriot American Gerald Celnete said.We as a nation need to RETURN to GOD (not a phony religion),come together as a UNITED PEOPLE and take these FREAKS out of office,bring them to JUSTICE,and REFORM our country back to a constitutional REPUBLIC,like the CONSTITUTION STATES.
    IT IS UP TO US THE AMERICAN PEOPLE,THE 99% TO DEMAND CHANGE,BECAUSE IF WE DON’T THE USA WILL BE AMERIKA THE BANANA REPUBLIC,A THIRD WORLD HELLHOLE,UNDER A FASCIST DICTATORSHIP.IS THAT WHAT WE WANT?

      we have no moral authority after our war of aggression against Iraq

        We lost our moral authority not long after WW2 and long before Iraq.

        Every war post WW2 had dollar bills wrote all over it.

      sequoia:-

      Very well put and a pretty accurate assessment. Check out my reply to Curtis below and research the points I have raised. The bloodlines and families must be “named”, rather than just referring to them as the “elite”. The elite have names, names that point to another profound observation!

      Once this is all properly exposed, we are halfway home to reversing the destruction they have caused globally. Far too many are frightened to broach the subject. There is nothing to fear but fear itself. Those who overcome it will find the truth and deal with it within. They can then educate others directly, or at least point them in the correct direction.

  • hankhill

    Reason # 71-

    Your “birth certificate”. Since 1921 every individual born within the jurisdiction of the United States has been automatically conscripted at birth into a system of life-long debt slavery. Google “the truth of your birth certificate”. As a ward of the state from the moment you passed out of your mother’s birth canal, you have no true “rights” or “freedoms”.
    Take some time to research the subject, with what minimal tools the Royal Crown has left you to investigate it with. There is no such thing as “property rights”, everything you think “own”, including your own body actually belongs to international bankers and the governments they are in collusion with.

    This is not embellished sensationalism or conspiratorial speculation, it’s an ugly fact of our willful compliance to their using our very existence as collateral.

    • PB

      All true. Same system has been implemented in almost all countries. The aim is to cheat us out of our birthright which is the wealth of the land itself and our freedom upon it. The higher you look in any society the more you will come across people who know this system and protect it, particularly in Law.

      Christians? Here may indeed be your “Mark of the Beast”.

  • Curtis

    My thoughts? Well….the Constitution is an OKAY ideal, but its application in real time as been dodgy at best, especially it has been historically thin on the life, liberty and property for the working masses. Further to put it bluntly the fact is that the consitution is defunct and we now live life under a de facto plutocratic oligarchy ie the elite 1/10 of 1% that own some 30% of the chips in this casino, said elite having ZERO national loyalty, and are rapidly looting the American/EU store. So to sum it up: Time for Article V and a constitutional convention which will modify our governmental forms to insulate them from money and the power which that brings to the elite and the corruptive influences of said money powers…that would be the legal and orderly way forward, and just this act of taking the money out of politics would do miracles for the body public that is ‘The People’ as in us little people. Thanks.

      When calling for a constitutional convention, be careful what you wish for. Everything after “We The People” is up for grabs.

    47. The Obama administration is considering plans to unilaterally slash the size of the U.S. nuclear arsenal by up to 80 percent.

    which is still more than enough to destroy the world, and NO nation is capable of destroying our nuclear missle subs

    49. All over the United States, chaplains are being banned from praying in the name of Jesus.

    you shouldn’t pray in the name of Jesus at an ecumenical setting

    67. America has pushed God out of every corner of public life and now we are really starting to really feel the consequences of that.

    hmmmm, I very much doubt you have in mind the Muslim god, or Hindu god(s), or even the Mormon god

    • A concerned young AmeriCan Patriot

      Gay vet, its not so much about the need to destroy the earth millions of times over, rather, it is a political front. China and russia undoubtably have vast nuclear arsenals that they are unwilling to tell us about, and if we get rid of our nuclear arsenal, then we will look weak in their eyes. And it is always the weaker countries that get invaded and conquered. Look at Greece during Roman times. Look at france in wwII. You think the situation is bad now, if either country invades us, things will get a whole lot worse. It’s a nuclear deterrent, and mutually assured destruction. If we lower our nuke count, we will look weak. (Note, this is all hypothetical, but all angles and situations must be observed and treated equally, especially with war with iran looming on our doorstep).

        • A Concerned young AmeriCan Patriot

          As I said, it is all hypothetical, but in a war (dangerously close to it) (with Iran, which both countries are allied to, no less) all options and scenarios must be evaluated. Someone who was in the military, like yourself (if you really did serve, no one can be sure on the internet); should understand this.

    [6. We currently have the worst president in U.S. history, and there is a chance that we may have to endure another 4 years of his insanity.]

    I used to think it couldn’t get worse than the smirking chimp, but I was wrong. I despised his predecessor too and hoped for some relief, but we didn’t get it. I didn’t think much of Daddy Bush and actually thought Raygun was okay, but in those pre-internet days I was oblivious to their reality.

    Each SOB in the White House stands on the shoulders of the SOB before him, so all we can be sure of is that the next SOB will be even worse.

    # 71) Where much has been given, much more will be expected. America has had the biblical truth for centuries. We are a country that has enjoyed great religious freedom, theres a church on every corner. How severe will the judgment of a nation be that turned it’s back on God after recieving such blessing and revelation. This is not going to end well for America.

  • BillybonesIII

    I know I’m late getting my comment in but I need to sound off here. I’ve spent nearly 80 years living next to what I think is the best country in the world (next to Canada).
    That said, Canada and the U.S.A. co-existed for decades with the longest unguarded border in the world. We even saw the “Peace Arch” built on the 49th parallel between Washington state and British Columbia.
    I don’t have the space or time to list the “90” plus wonderful experiences my family and I had visiting places like Knott’s Berry Farm, the old Disneyland…I still chuckle thinking about the time Kruschev while on a state visit, wasn’t able to go there. He was some P’d off.
    I remember one year when my wife wasn’t able to get time off during the summer holidays, the kids and I went down to Disneyland. We ran out of money and in those days US banks would not transfer funds to or from a Canadian band of the same name. The accountant at my bank in Sacramento advanced me traveling money to get home on a promise…. ‘A PROMISE’…. that I’d send her the funds when we got home to Vancouver BC. (which was done the day after we got home). We did things like that back then.!(She loaned us 100 dollars, a huge amount back then I think from her own personal account)
    You have a great country Americans. It can still be a great country but you must get your house (white) in order and get right with God.
    These terrible things that are happening across your land are a WAKE-UP call.

    Anyway, A belated Happy 4th of July to everyone in the 48….oops, sorry. “50” from a friend north of the 49th.

    The only problem I have with this article are the religious points. Most of them seem to be from a Christian viewpoint, and though they would be important in 1776, they are for the most part obsolete in such a diverse society.

    We cannot get out of our dept because we live a luxurious life style compare to majority of the world. We do this by our restaurants, ran by us to feed us because we are too lazy to cook for our self, throwing away as much food as consumed while some place around the world is starving to death. We allow our kind to go into poor country to manipulate their leaders to steal natural resources from their people causing civil war in that country and we sell gun to them before and afterward. We fat Americans consume lots of chocolate knowing that some poor kids are being forced to pick the coco pod from the tree just for our craving. We lazy Americans don’t care about the chickens we eat that are crammed into tight spaces never allowed to move nor see the sun ever. What we do to others, SO WILL IT BE DONE TO US or become. Our dept isn’t going away nor forgiven, but some thing violent may have to happen about it that involve millions of american, because the money wasn’t ours, we borrowed it from other country, they cannot forgive us. The least we can do is put the blame on our government which messed up our country which are the dirty politician in office aka the elite. In reality, we are the one messed up. Every day, I watch Americans in their forty look like their grand parents; they look like they are 65 and act like it too; weak bone and body from all the microwave foods they’ve consume most of their lazy life. Even their kids don’t look healthy.

  • Graham

    Michael:-

    It has become apparent that you have blocked a post I made on here, and likewise on “The Economic Collapse Blog” website yesterday. The post was specifically aimed at informing your readers exactly where to look in order to find out who the “eilite” are, the common denominator that binds them all together, in addition to their often televised and published admittance of their “group” affiliations. Why would you conceal this information?

    Surely somebody who imparts so much negative data about the destruction they have caused, and are still causing to this day, would be more than happy to see his readership being armed with such factual data?

    Why allow posts that are often extremely abusive towards others in the forum? It seems somewhat contradictory. Numerous other sites are starting to expose the truth I imparted, yet it appears to remain a “secret” here.

    Please explain. By email if you wish.

    Michael, please have a look at this very alarming piece of news: http://www.reuters.com/article/2012/07/06/tagblogsfindlawcom2012-freeenterprise-idUS46486403720120706. FL Lifeguard Fired Over Liability Concerns: Florida lifeguard Tomas Lopez was fired after he tried to save a man’s life — an example of how a company’s fear of liability can sometimes make waves and backfire.

    This story is about an Estonian tourist who almost got drowned on a Florida beach. A lifeguard was fired for rushing to save the drowning tourist. Is this the message that America is sending to the outside world: come and have a vacation here but do it on your own risk as we shall fire any lifeguard who comes to save you?

    I was just thinking, and I realized there will be death. In a way, all the sheeple who are in denial forever, or try to hold back the evolution of this country, should be wiped out. It’s survival of the bold and intelligent. I do not want people to die, but am just saying when the time comes for America to fall or reform, when WE the brave get our voice heard, the idiots may be ‘weeded out’. I would say 75% of America will side behind those in power, both out of stupidity and denial. Out of that 75% I’d say 50% of those will be blind no matter how much we throw it in their face. I don’t want reform to be violent, but I think at this point (and it will get much worse) there will be blood. I’ll also say that most people I have met are vicious, mean, and easily angered. These people may not survive.

    Actually, George W. Bush is the worst president in U.S. history. Obama is probably middle of the pack. It didn’t matter who was president after Bush, in 8 years, Bush set America back 20, to the point where we might not recover from the mess.
