Uh Oh – The Internet Is About To Run Out Of IP Addresses!

Yes, you read the headline correctly.  The Internet is about to run out of IP addresses.  The Internet Assigned Numbers Authority has scheduled a press conference in Miami on Thursday to announce that they are distributing the last blocks of new Internet addresses.  It is expected that all of those IP addresses will be fully distributed within 6 to 9 months and then there will be no more.  The current IP address system, known as “IPv4”, can only support a little over 4 billion IP addresses and we have now almost reached that limit.  The good news is that a replacement for the current system already exists, but the bad news is the the vast majority of Internet devices around the globe do not speak the “language” of the new system.  This has the potential to create an Internet “headache” of mammoth proportions in the coming years.

40 Percent Of Egyptians Live On 2 Dollars A Day Or Less And The Global Elite Like It That Way

After thousands of years of “progress” and “societal evolution”, how is it possible that most of the world is still living in soul crushing poverty?  In recent days, it has been reported all over the media that 40 percent of Egyptians live on 2 dollars a day or less.  Sadly, there are lots of other countries where even larger percentages of the population live in abject poverty.  So how in the world did this happen?  We can send men into space, we can send electronic communications to the other side of the globe in an instant and we can destroy entire cities with a single bomb and yet we can’t figure out how to set up an economic system that will provide jobs, food and housing for everyone on the planet?  That doesn’t seem right.  That doesn’t seem right at all.

18 Ridiculous Statistics About Medical Bills, Medical Debt And The Health Care Industry That Will Make You So Mad You Will Want To Tear Your Hair Out

Do not read this article if you do not want to get angry.  The health care industry in the United States has become one gigantic money making scam, and tens of millions of American families now live in great fear of illness and disease.  Why are they so afraid?  It is not because they fear the illnesses and diseases.  Rather, the prospect of racking up tens of thousands (if not hundreds of thousands) of dollars in medical debt is enough to deeply frighten just about anyone.  Today, virtually every single American is one really bad day from financial ruin.  Did you know that medical bills are the number one reason for bankruptcy in the United States?  Did you know that the vast majority of people that go bankrupt due to medical bills actually have health insurance?  Meanwhile, there are a significant number of people that are becoming fabulously wealthy off of this system.  Our “health care industry” has turned large numbers of doctors, lawyers, health insurance company executives and pharmaceutical company executives into multi-millionaires.  The health care industry in the United States has been so corrupt and so greedy for so long that we don’t even remember what a legitimate medical system even looks like anymore.

10 Things That The Egypt Riots Can Teach Us About What Happens When Society Breaks Down

The rioting in Egypt is perhaps the biggest single news story so far in 2011.  The pace at which Egyptian society has been transformed over the past week has been absolutely breathtaking.  A few months ago, nobody would have ever dreamed that there would be huge riots in the streets of major Egyptian cities calling for the resignation of Hosni Mubarak.  But it has happened, and now Egypt will never be the same again.  So what does the future hold for Egypt?  Well, many are hopeful that this revolution will bring about a better government in Egypt and a better way of life for average Egyptians.  Personally, I am not nearly so optimistic.  In fact, I believe that there is a great danger that an even more repressive government could take the place of the current regime.  But in any event, there are important lessons that the Egypt riots can teach all of us about what happens when society breaks down.  Societal collapse is often a very messy, very violent affair.  Someday if the global economy completely implodes, we may see economic riots erupt all over the world (including inside the United States) and we all need to get prepared for that.

What Is Globalization?

What is globalization?  Well, if you ask 100 different Americans you will probably get 100 different answers.  Many people view globalization as harmless or even as a good thing.  Other Americans believe that the United States will never be integrated into a global economic and political system.  Still others view it as a future threat that has not arrived yet.  Those that consider it to be a future threat are concerned that at some point American sovereignty will end and at that point economic and political power will be handed over to a “world government”.  Well, the truth is that all of those points of view are missing the point.  Globalization has been happening for decades and it is already very, very far advanced.  The U.S. government has already surrendered massive amounts of political and economic power to global organizations such as the UN, the WTO, the IMF and the World Bank.  In particular, our economy has been almost entirely merged into the emerging one world economy.  Just because we still have a government in Washington D.C. and just because we are still using U.S. dollars does not mean that we still possess our economic independence.  The truth is that global bureaucrats have a stunning amount of control over our economy right now, and even as you read this most of the consumer products sold in our stores are made on the other side of the world.

Moral Relativism

John Adams, the second president of the United States, once made the following statement: “We have no government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion. Avarice, ambition, revenge, or gallantry, would break the strongest cords of our Constitution as a whale goes through a net. Our Constitution was made only for a religious and moral people. It is wholly inadequate for the government of any other.”  As we promote a return to constitutional principles, perhaps we should also be asking ourselves if the American people are moral enough to uphold and defend our Constitution anymore.  Will a political shift in Washington D.C. solve all of our problems, or should we be looking into our own hearts as well?  As controversial as it may be to question the morality of the American people, the truth is that after all of the shocking things that have transpired in this nation over the last 50 years someone certainly should be willing to ask the hard questions.  It would be hard to deny that moral relativism and moral decay are absolutely rampant in the United States today, and that our moral problems are very much at the heart of many of our problems.

Do Not Let The Establishment Divide Us – We Are All Americans

Have you ever noticed how almost all the mainstream news stories carried on the major news networks are slanted in a way that is intended to divide Americans?  The truth is that the “establishment” is constantly trying to divide us and get us fighting with one another.  They pit the Republicans against the Democrats (even as though control both sides).  They pit one race against another.  They pit one gender against another.  We are told that the rich are against the poor, the north is against the south, urban is against rural and that there are even “generational battles” going on.  Frustration and hate are rapidly growing in the United States today, and a lot of that frustration and hate is unfortunately aimed at the targets that the mainstream media has programmed all of us to hate.  Meanwhile, those at the top of the pyramid who are controlling the whole game love it when we are divided because we can never become united and challenge their control.

Is This What The Whole Country Is Going To Look Like After The Economy Collapses?: 4 Restaurant Brawl Videos That Are So Wild You Won’t Believe They Happened In America

What in the world is happening to America?  The things that you are about to see in the videos posted in this article are so disturbing and so violent that it is hard to believe that it is actually Americans that are doing this to one another.  Once upon a time, Americans generally conducted themselves with humility, grace, civility, honor and with a tremendous amount of respect for others.  Sadly, those days are now long gone.  Now, large numbers of people in this country are just going wild.  Unfortunately, the videos you are about to watch are not isolated incidents.  Stuff like this is going on all over the country.  So what is going to happen when the economy collapses and shortages begin?  What kind of violence and rioting should we expect to see at that point?  Just recall what we witnessed in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.  Sadly, if the videos below are any indication, the thin facade of civilization that we all take for granted every day could completely disintegrate in the event of a major economic catastrophe.

No Jobs, No Hope, No Future: 27 Signs That America’s Poverty Class Is Rapidly Becoming Larger Than America’s Middle Class

In the America that most of us grew up in, most Americans considered themselves to be part of the “upper middle class”, the “middle class” or “the lower middle class”.  Yes, there have always been poor people and homeless people, but they were thought to be a very small sliver of the population.  Well, today all of that is dramatically changing.  America’s emerging “poverty class” is exploding in size at the same time that America’s middle class is rapidly disappearing.  You won’t hear it on the mainstream news, but the truth is that the United States has lost ten percent of its middle class jobs over the past decade.  Only the top 5 percent of income earners in the U.S. has had their incomes increase enough to keep up with the rising cost of living over the past 40 years.  The truth is that today there are a whole lot of people aggressively jostling for the small number of good jobs that are actually available and each year millions more Americans are being squeezed out of the middle class.  The number of Americans that are financially dependent on the U.S. government continues to set new records month after month.  The number of Americans that are participating in the labor force continues to go down.  The sad reality is that the “American Dream” that so many Americans used to take for granted is being ripped away from us.  If you still believe that the United States is guaranteed to always have a very large, very prosperous middle class then you really need to read the statistics listed below.
