20 Facts That Will Make You Really Mad If You Stop And Think About Them For A While

The more you read the news today the more likely you are to get really mad.  The world is becoming an incredibly crazy place, and at times the amount of bad news that is coming out can seem almost overwhelming.  Everywhere you look, the poor are being oppressed, our politicians are making stupid decisions and evil is on the march.  The America that so many of us grew up deeply loving is literally being ripped to shreds in a thousand different ways.  Unfortunately, those in power have not had any real answers for us in decades.  The Democrats don’t have any real answers, the Republicans don’t have any real answers and the Federal Reserve sure as heck does not have any real answers.  In fact, it seems like almost everything that our leaders actually do “accomplish” only makes things worse.  The vast majority of Americans are quite busy being entertained by “bread and circuses”, but meanwhile our country is literally falling apart.

Now That The Super Bowl Is Over, Here Are 17 Facts Which Prove America Is A Debt Pig That Is Deeply Addicted To Debt-Fueled Prosperity

Wasn’t the Super Bowl wonderful this year?  Congratulations to the Green Bay Packers!  It is amazing how much money people will spend to attend this game each year.  Just a few hours before kickoff, some tickets were selling for over $4000 a seat.  Not that it wasn’t a great show.  It turned out to be a really great game and it was held in perhaps the most extravagant sports facility ever constructed in the history of mankind.  Even the halftime show, featuring the Black Eyed Peas, was a spectacle of historic proportions.  This year the Super Bowl truly was quite a grand party.  In America, everything always has to be bigger and better.  We take pride in constantly outdoing ourselves.  Other nations of the world look at our great prosperity in envy.  But do we ever stop to ask ourselves where all of this great prosperity has come from and if we can continue to afford it all?

10 Shocking Videos Of The Protests In Egypt That Are Almost Too Graphic To Watch

Over the past week, the mainstream media has not really done a good job of communicating how intense the violence and bloodshed in Egypt has become.  Trucks and cars have been plowing into groups of protesters at high speed, dozens of protesters have been shot and killed, and the violence only seems to get more crazy with each passing day.  Seriously, if you cannot handle scenes of graphic violence and people dying, then you probably should not watch the videos posted below.  These are 10 of the most shocking videos of the protests in Egypt, and they are incredibly graphic.  This is a real revolution that is happening in Egypt and it is very bloody.

Smoking In The Park Banned, Ticketed For Cussing In Class And 14 Other Examples Of How Big Brother Is Systematically Ripping Our Liberties And Freedoms Away

When our founding fathers established this nation, they did so with the intention that government would be very limited and that there would be a tremendous amount of liberty and freedom.  But today that is such a distant memory that we don’t even remember what “the land of the free and the home of the brave” actually means anymore.  Our lives are constrained by literally millions of laws, rules and regulations and it gets worse every single day.  The federal government, state governments, local governments and even homeowners associations have become absolutely tyrannical.  There is a “law” or a “rule” for almost everything now, and many of them are absolutely ridiculous.  Big Brother is ripping our liberties and freedoms away from us at a blistering pace.  Just about any activity that you can think of other than sitting completely still in utter silence in your own home is tightly regulated by government.  This is not what our founding fathers intended.

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.

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.

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.
