Chaos On The Streets Of America

Should we just expect mass chaos on the streets of America every time a major holiday rolls around?  At least 42 people were hit by gunfire in New York City over the Labor Day weekend.  The violence got so bad that even the mayor felt compelled to publicly address it.  In Chicago, at least 6 people (including a man in a wheelchair) were killed over the Labor Day weekend.  Sadly, this is just a continuation of a trend that we have seen build over the past few years.  At the beginning of the summer, there was terrible violence all over America during the Memorial Day weekend.  We also saw violence break out during 4th of July celebrations.  It appears that wherever large groups of young people gather in America today, there is going to be a very good chance that chaos is going to erupt.


Almost wherever you look, you can see the frustration of the American people starting to boil over.  Very few public places seem to be immune.

For example, there have been very disturbing incidents of violence at quite a few NFL games recently.  Just check out this video and this video.

There was even one incident recently where coaches and players ganged up to brutally attack a referee during a youth football game in Florida.

What in the world is happening to this country?

People are getting angrier and angrier and they are starting to lash out.

As I have documented previously, there have been a disturbing number of flash mob robberies in the United States this year.  When dozens of young people start banding together to loot stores, you know that things are getting bad.  Just check out this video of a recent example from the state of Maryland.

When individuals or small groups commit crimes that is bad enough.

But when large groups of people start banding together to commit crimes that is absolutely frightening.

The sad truth is that it is not even safe to take your kids to the state fair anymore.  The following is how one local ABC News affiliate described the “flash mob” attacks that took place at the Wisconsin state fair this year….

Milwaukee police said that around 11:10 p.m., squads were sent to the area for reports of battery, fighting and property damage being caused by an unruly crowd of “hundreds” of people. One officer described it as a “mob beating.”

Police said the group of young people attacked fair goers who were leaving the fair grounds. Police said that some victims were attacked while walking. They said others were pulled out of cars and off of motorcycles before being beaten.

Could you imagine your children watching that scene unfold from the backseat of your vehicle?

Could you imagine your wife and your children being pulled out of your vehicle and beaten by rampaging criminals?

Yes, this kind of thing is now happening in the heartland of America.

Even young girls are increasingly participating in violence.  Just check out this video of a group of teen girls brutally assaulting a worker outside City Hall in Philadelphia earlier this year.

How in the world did those young girls learn to act like that?

Sadly, that was not an isolated incident.  Young women all over the nation have become absolutely brutal.  In Minnesota recently, a mob of teen girls beat the living daylights out of a mother and her two daughters until they were black and blue.  Apparently the mob of teen girls was enraged over a pair of missing sunglasses.

In America today, the love of most people has grown cold.  A growing number of Americans (especially young Americans) seem to have very little empathy for anyone else.

As the economy crumbles, many Americans find themselves doing very low things in order to survive.  So far in 2011, dog thefts have increased by 49 percent.  These days, people will steal anything of value if it is not bolted down.

What is certainly not helping things is the rampant unemployment all over the nation.  Sadly, the younger that you are, the more likely that you are to be unemployed.

According to a recent USA Today article, more than one-fourth of all teens are unemployed at this point….

The unemployment rate for 16- to 19-year-olds ticked up to 25.4% in August from 25% the previous month, the Labor Department said last week. For black teens, unemployment leaped to 46.5% from 39.2% in July. The nation’s jobless rate was unchanged at 9.1%.

But those numbers only tell part of the story.  The real picture starts to emerge when you look at how many teens actually do have a job.

Back in the year 2000, more than 50 percent of all Americans teens had a job.

This summer, only 29.6% of all American teens had a job.

So we have a whole lot of teens with a whole lot of time on their hands.

Unfortunately, there just aren’t enough jobs for everyone out there right now.  There is intense competition even for the most basic jobs.

The number of Americans with jobs overall continues to decline.  For example, the percentage of Californians that are 16 years or older that have a job is the lowest that is has been in over 30 years.

What is even more frightening is that we have just seen another huge wave of layoffs.  The following is from a recent CBS article….

It’s been a summer storm of pink slips. Along with Borders, Bank of America, Cisco, Lockheed Martin, and Goldman Sachs have all recently announced mass layoffs.

But a lack of jobs is far from the only reason why the fabric of American society is falling to pieces.

Many believe that another huge reason for all of the chaos on the streets of America is the breakdown of the American family.  In 1960, married couples accounted for 75 percent of all households in America.  Today, they account for just 48 percent of all households.

Millions upon millions of American children are growing up with only one parent, and that one parent usually has to work so hard that he or she is hardly ever home.

So those kids are being raised by our public schools, by government institutions, by the television, by movies, by video games and by other kids.

Now we are starting to reap what we have been sowing as a society.

Many of our greatest cities have been transformed into rotting war zones.  As millions of jobs have been shipped overseas, entire communities have been gutted.  Those that remain in these cities find themselves trying to survive in an environment where morality has been thrown out the window.

For example, the following is what one British reporter found during his visit to Detroit….

Much of Detroit is horribly dangerous for its own residents, who in many cases only stay because they have nowhere else to go. Property crime is double the American average, violent crime triple. The isolated, peeling homes, the flooded roads, the clunky, rusted old cars and the neglected front yards amid trees and groin-high grassland make you think you are in rural Alabama, not in one of the greatest industrial cities that ever existed.

In Detroit today, residents are literally tearing the city apart in an attempt to find things to sell.  The city is literally cannibalizing itself.  Just check out the following short video about what is happening right now in Detroit….

It is so sad to see what is happening to America.  Things did not have to turn out this way.

But we have turned our backs on the principles handed down to us by our founding fathers.  We were convinced that we knew better than they did.

Well, now we are finding out that perhaps we should have listened to them.

In a previous article, I quoted what John Adams, the second president of the United States, had to say about the importance of morality in society….

“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.”

Our Constitution is in grave danger today.  As I wrote about yesterday, this nation is being transformed into a much different place.  The federal government has become deeply corrupt and so has a large portion of the American people.

So what is the answer?

How can we recapture the essence of what once made this country so great?

  • Gary2

    This is the norm in third world America.

    What do you expect in a banana republic where the richest 400 people have more wealth and income than the bottom 155 million?

    This does not excuse this violent behavior but it does explain it.

    I would think the rich would be better off having a smaller piece of a growing and stable economy instead of having all of a dead economy.

    Yet the right wing trash want to cut taxes on the rich even more and raise taxes on the poor who they say don’t pay taxes? Tea baggers wake up you fools.

    • Granite Prepper

      Sorry to offend anyone else on this blog but Gary2 you are a freakin’ idiot. You are the reason we as a society have fallen. You and your socialist kind are the whale John Adams was referring to….we are unfortunately the net you have destroyed.

      • hahahah. you shut him up! gary rants too much, but he’s good to have around here. At least he’s awake to what’s going on

      • Nexus789

        Idiot…US society has been trashed by the rich and powerful bastards. They have hijacked and asset stripped the US economy. Has sod all to do with socialism – you are simply showing your lack of knowledge and mind numbing ignorance. There are very few things about the US that are genuinely socialist.

        • Curtis

          Granite Prepper,

          Sadly, Gary2 is right. Who do you think owns the federal Reserve Banks? And do you think they are all poor? You should also note, that many corporations are joining with the government supplying the government with the means to technologically expand its net around the people of this country. We are fast becoming a full blown corporate fascist State … all with the help of those rich people. In fact, many of those rich people who are helping the government becomes a corporate fascist State used to work for the government. And lets take all those rich people who are invited to the Bilderberg meetings … do you think it’s just some frat boy party they are having?

          I don’t have a problem with people making an honest buck and getting rich. I do have a problem with people getting rich, their heads swelling … and then selling out the American peoples.

        • Granite Prepper

          Gosh, you certainly put me in my place with facts. However, you are right, we aren’t socialist, we are truly facist. Are you and Gary2 on the same brain-dead train to hell??

          • Paul

            Somehow I doubt you are a real poster, probably one of those creatures who work for PR companies, hired to manufacture opinion. Real or not though, America is on its knees precisely because of idiots like you.

          Heh… How about some pot-kettle-black there?

          Post Office
          Social Security
          Public Education

          And the list goes on and on… Very few things about the us that’re genuinely Socialist? Not by a long-shot.

        No, I’m sorry, Gary is right and you are wrong, Granite. Our society has lost its compassion and is motivated by greed alone. Such a nation cannot last.

    • Adam

      You people don’t get it though! It is useless to say right wing, left wing, republican/democrat…It’s all the same ship sailing to the same destination. Only the captain and route differ.

  • Gary2

    Michael-I do not know why you don’t say that the WI state fair mob was black youth beating white people because they were white?

    I did not take you for the politically correct type…

    We even had some of the right wing hate radio hosts suggest a “black youth free day” (no blacks under 25 allowed in after 4pm) at the fair.

    I am not advocating anything but you left out the nerve this has touched off in Milwaukee. I know as I live here.

    I fear that when concealed carry goes into effect in Nov there will be a lot of dead thugs (no loss) and innocent people will get shot in the melee.

    • Michael


      When we allow our society to group us into “teams” and judge us by the color of our skin we all lose.

      Right now, racial hatred in this country on all sides is rapidly growing.

      I believe that God created all of us, that He loves all of us and that we should not evaluate people based on the color of their skin.


    • ScoutMotto


      “I fear that when concealed carry goes into effect in Nov there will be a lot of dead thugs (no loss) and innocent people will get shot in the melee.”

      Innocent people are already getting ‘shot in the melee.’ The idea behind concealed carry is to make the thugs think twice about coming up on someone who may be armed, and it has worked well in other states that have concealed-carry. The ONLY flaw I see with concealed-carry is it lets the state know who is armed, and I don’t think the state needs to know who is armed.


      • Xypher

        It seems to have been working out for the most part for us in Texas. That’s the beauty of it, anywhere you go you have to consider the reality that we are more than likely armed and in a lot of cases with more than a few firearms at our disposal. The worst thing you could consider is a robbery of a true southerner, like a ranch, you could literally walk into your own war zone in some cases, but definitely makes one consider twice.

      • Gary2

        thanks-Regarding concealed carry and guns in general I really have no opinion as both sides make equal sense to me. However, If you want to talk about taxing the rich and spreading the wealth then I have a lot to say :)

        • Texan Patriot

          Socialism is just thievery for lazy, blood sucking, envious greedy freeloading parasites. Socialism just destroys jobs and innovation and increases unemployment. Capitalism creates jobs.

          • misterkel

            spoken like someone with strong opinions and little research.
            Are public roads socialism? Do you want to build your own roads? How about the military? It fits the definition. Or public libraries? I think most spouting off the mouth “capitalists” have never studied what they are talking about. All societies have both capitalist and communal aspects – Do your children do a full day’s work for their room and board? Probably not. They’re little communists, then, aren’t they? Families are communistic – from each according to his abilities, to each according to his needs.
            All societies are, by necessity, a mix of these two systems (and others, which blind-thinking, either-or types cannot see or imagine).

    • Gary2

      I did not say to judge people on the color of their skin. I simply said that you are not accurately reporting things by leaving this fact out of your story. This was racially motivated and to ignore the facts (like fox news does) is not accurate reporting.

      There were black journalists that acknowledged this.

      “I believe that God created all of us, that He loves all of us and that we should not evaluate people based on the color of their skin.”

      I agree 100%.

      • Michael

        I was not trying to accuse you of anything. I was just trying to point out that when we say that “black people did this” or that “white people did that” we feed into the racial divisions that already exist.

        My wish is that someday Americans would look at a group of people and would describe them as “Americans” instead of by what color they are.

        But I don’t think we will ever get there sadly.

        • Granite Prepper

          Race will be the single largest dividing factor used in this upcoming election cycle…..just don’t think we’ll survive as a nation to see who the winner is. Not that it would matter as repubs and demos are two sides of the same corrupt coin. God help all of us in our time of need.

      • A Dodgy Bloke

        I would like to add when this thing crashes and starts devouring people it wont care what color you skin is. Unemployment, hunger, fear, desperation, hopelessness, doesn’t know a skin color.

  • Magdiel

    As you said Michael,they are reaping what they have sown.They took God out of the public schools and introduced heathenism therein,teaching evolutionism thus denying the only God and Creator of the whole universe.The only thing America has to do in order to survive is return to God and stop being so defiant toward Him!!May the Lord God Almighty be merciful with us!!

    • TK

      Amen Magdiel! Very good point!

    • Tim Spinotter

      Truth is more precious than anything else. And the truth is that we know nothing about the universe so we concoct a deity to explain things for us. And then we begin to worship the deity that we created ourselves. This is not a recipe for successful navigation of our human lives, built as it is upon a total lie.

  • Imran

    Well you better all start praying to that white man with blue eyes and long blonde hair if you want to be “saved” ‘cos right now his Dad ain’t to happy!! Afterall the father and son are God combined according to your retarded logic who ain’t very happy with you!!

    Well folks this is where i come in to make it easier for you and to answer those questions!! Yes you should expect massive civil war in your country as early as next year so party all you can before that!! Don’t forget to ask Santa Claus for plenty off goodies to celebrate “God’s death” afterall you’ll be getting your ass handed back to you very soon, ho…ho…ho!!!

    You need Robocop on the filthy streets of Detriot but perhaps he has also given up in saving you from the bad guys knowing that he was being lied to all the time!! It’s not sad but great to see what’s happening in America for it’s been a longtime coming!

    • Guido

      Imran, do you run on anything besides hate and ignorance? Aside from attacking Christians and our forgotten hero, Robocop, have you got any rational comments?
      And if we’re so doomed, why are you wasting your time gloating over us?

    • “It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the Living God.” God have mercy on your soul; Imran. You won’t be a blaspheming smartass when you stand before Him on The Day of Judgment.

  • mark

    Michael, your quote from John Adams says it all. We have tried to boot God from public life and replace God with a bunch of material junk. The progresives have had their way long enough. Religion needs to come back to the public square. We shall not force people to believe or live bible values, but we need to be a God loving nation again. It is ok to pray in public. Those that do not want this should at least respect those wish too do so. If they do not believe in God, that is their choice. But I reserve the right too express myself also.

    • Paul

      Humility and mutual respect were always what was needed, not material things and certainly not made-up gods.

    • Steve

      Ok let buddism prevail

  • Highspeedloafer

    To answer your question, I would say, there is nothing “WE” can do to restore America to her former greatness.

    Individually, I believe it is time to seek God and repent of our sin. God will have mercy on us if we do. In the O.T. book of Nehemiah, upon hearing of the shame and reproach of his nation, Nehemiah immediately sought God for his people. The Bible says, He wept, mourned fasted and prayed for his people and made confession of the sins of his nation. God mercifully heard that prayer and led Nehemiah in a great revival of the people. Later the people joined Nehemiah in repentance and God restored them.

    If the USA is to be restored, it will only happen when the people repent of our sin and seek God once more. I don’t know about any of you, but, I have repented of my part in our demise as a nation. I confess that I have sinned against God and seek His forgiveness. My prayer is that enough of us will seek God that He will spare us much agony in the months and years to come.

    • TK

      Could not agree more Highspeedloafer.

    • Highspeedloafer, I generally agree with your take on the Lord’s expectations of His people, both the Jews and the Christians: that we humble ourselves and pray and seek His face and (especially) turn from our wicked ways.

      However, I see a lot of that happening, but it never satisfies God such that He hears, forgives, and heals our land. So I’m not sure that obeying these O.T. commands and admonitions is going to cause any extension of this age of grace, even for the purpose of bringing that last straggler from the fire of God’s wrath into the shade of the Cross.

      Do you really see the “10 righteous persons in Sodom” and “thousands of Ninevites repenting in sackcloth” principle as operative this side of Jesus’ atoning sacrifice for sin(s)? Or is that just part of the Law from which we are set free through faith in Christ?

  • A.S.

    G-d forgive me if this comes out racist, but it seems to me that most of the violence in those videos were perpetrated by black people. Isn’t that interesting?

    • Michael


      The God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob loves all people. He created all of us and He does not judge us by the color of our skin.


      • A.S.

        I have yet to see white people doing a mob shoplifting. Can someone provide me with a youtube link?

    • Guido

      Blacks in America had less family and social structure to lose, but the stats show everyone is dealing with the same problems, including whites. Given longer on the entitlement treadmill and exposure to Progressive social engineering, and whites would be in exactly the same place.

    • The Sojourner

      When people on the upper end of the totem pole,(mainly white),start to feel the severe effects of the economical downturn, when they can’t feed their children or pay their bills, I promise you that they also will begin committing atrocious crimes, just the same.

      Those black youth are rampaging now because they are suffering the most right now. The poorest always feel the effects of a downturn first. Remember, a hungry man is an angry man.

      • Granite Prepper

        you mean the same “poor” people with all the bling, the nice cars, the video game machines and cell phones??? Sorry, but many of these people are rioting in various cities and attacking white people not because they’re poor but because they’ve been told it’s ok to do so and programmed that white people are the reason for the suffering. While poverty sucks in all its forms, racial violence isn’t just about poverty it is about hate and envy….I know that isn’t politically correct but it is the truth.

        • lone survivor

          Granite Prepper:
          I agree with you. There are some people out there who are mad at the world, high on drugs, drunk, want some money, got into a “fight” with their wife/girlfriend, and want to take it out on you because it’s all your fault and your “white”!
          This idea that everybody will one day hold hands and sing campfire songs is a joke.
          Detroit in 1950 had over 2 million, working population-mostly white. Now it is, what, 75% black? And 800,000, And falling apart? Articles i’ve read said you can purchase a home in Detroit for as littler as $100, but there’s black gangs, criminals, homeless, crazies, etc. (Where the hell did all of these people come from!)
          You know, some of these blacks just don’t like white people no matter what. Then there is some who think they should run things and white people should be their “slaves”! Check out Zimbawee in africa.

        • Chuck C

          dear Granite Prepper: Thanks you’re right, what some call poverty is a joke! The real sacking of poverty exisits on INDIAN reservations esp w/o a damn casino.

  • Ken w

    There has been an assault on the family and faith for over 40 years. Without these there can be no stable society. The nanny state has enslaved millions and encouraged a sense of entitlement. Gone are the days of personal responsibility, replaced by “give me whats mine”
    I spoke to a patient of mine who is 96. He said during the Great Depression people went door to door asking for work. They didn’t want handouts. People then had more integrity and moral fiber. Now we have 45 million on food stamps and a huge % on government handouts. When the currency collapses do you think all those people will act with civility and restraint like those in Japan after the tsunami?
    Our only hope is that the trails ahead will force people onto their knees to pray and rely on God

    • Michael

      Good comment Ken!


    • Gary2

      Ken-the best form of welfare is a good job. I agree. That’s a GOOD JOB, not the shitty low pay walmart jobs as most of the people who work there are on food stamps etc which is a form of corporate welfare to enable scum bag low pay companies to pay so poorly.

      • Freemarket3579

        Hello Gary,

        I think clearly you can solve the problem of low paying “scum bag” companies. You should open your own store, call it Gary-Mart, pay your cashiers $80 an hour, your stockers $80 an hour and your managers $150 an hour. You could charge about $400 for a candy bar and tell your customers it’s ok, you’re helping support the pay of my workers. Don’t go to those other “scum bag” stores. Let’s see how long you stay in business. The consumer is greedy and these companies need to survive and they pay what they can so that they can remain profitable. No profits means NO JOBS… It’s a free market society that thrives and government rules, mandates and regulations drive costs higher and higher for these companies. Perhaps if the government gets out of the way, these companies could pay more. Instead, the government will continue to destroy the free market and at the same time blame it and capitalism when things go wrong. It’s hypocritical nonsense and you’re one of the socialist fools that thinks government has all the answers.

      • Chuck C

        TRUE words socialism for the RI$H–China loves our plastic addiction

  • And it shall come to pass, if thou shalt hearken diligently unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to observe and to do all his commandments which I command thee this day, that the LORD thy God will set thee on high above all nations of the earth: and all these blessings shall come on thee, and overtake thee, if thou shalt hearken unto the voice of the LORD thy God. (Deu 28:1-2)

    But it shall come to pass, if thou wilt not hearken unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to observe to do all his commandments and his statutes which I command thee this day; that all these curses shall come upon thee, and overtake thee: cursed shalt thou be… (Deu 28:15-16a)

    Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting. (Gal 6:7-8)

    Go back and read Deuteronomy 28. I won’t post the whole chapter to save space. We have been sowing all manner of wickedness and violence in this country. We cannot expect to sow evil and reap good. If we become like Nineva and repent as a country and return to what made us great, then we will stand strong. If we don’t repent, mark my words, we will fall. I’ve been following events for a while now and I’m afraid it is too late to stop the fall of America. Best to just prepare and hang on for the ride.

  • Dan

    We use to live in a very rural mountain development, we loved the place.

    We began to notice that lots of people were moving in and they were not typical to the area, most look like tweekers (meth heads).

    We moved away from there at a great loss, the lady we sold it to with in a month someone stole the solar panels, batteries, generator etc.

    Now we live in the wilderness, no neighbors for miles. Glad to be away from the masses of people.

    • mark

      Dan, we have started shuting our gate even when we are at home. Some tweekers drove up last week looking for scrap metal and one was out of their truck and heading to the shop when I came out of the house. It used to be that strangers would not even cross our bridge or get out of their car wondering about what the dogs would do. Times are changing and not for the better.

      • Michael

        That is frightening to hear.


  • don rap

    Truth is: Our constitution was made only for a religious and moral people.

  • g

    “Our Constitution was made only for a religious and moral people.” Adams

    “All men were created equal, yadda yadda, blah blah blah”

    What can we do to restore our former glory? I dunno, maybe genocide followed by slavery? Oh wait, we’re already doing that in MENA and China. Hmmm. Maybe we should try something else. Might be something to the whole notion of ‘karma’.

    Most of the founders as well as Columbus were slaveholders and mass murderers. America was built on exploitation and theft. The purpose of govt is and always was to “protect wealth”, (i.e. keep and shift the money to the wealthy). And religion (cult) definitely causes far more harm than good.

    Step one: end the mass delusion and denial so that we can move on spiritually and morally.

    Humans need to evolve back to the level of the other animals who still know what life on this planet is actually about. Turn off the brainwashers and get back into nature. That’s all their is to it.

    • Guido

      Whoa there, cowboy. That’s a pretty broad brush you’re painting with. Columbus and the Founders are two vastly different things. Can you cite a single mass murderer among the Founders?

      I won’t deny owning slaves, but you’re out of touch if you’re going to hold the past to modern standards that didn’t exist back then. They lived over 2 centuries ago in a different world where slavery was perfectly acceptable and had been for thousands of years. You can’t blame them for having an institution they inherited from England, Portugal, Spain, Italy, ancient Rome, ancient Greece, Arabia etc.

      You should be thankful the collective experience of Western Civilization, including the religion you seem to hate, developed to a point where men began to realize slavery was wrong. Times change, society develops new ideas, and here we are. Women didn’t have sufferage until the beginning of the 20th century, but I don’t hear you griping about that part. God knows what people will blame us for in the future; robot rights, perhaps?

      You should do some reading, since you would find that abolition movements started to take form around the time of the founding and became stronger over the years leading up to the Civil War.

      Some of the Founders, in fact, were very much against slavery, but how do you oppose the fundamental beliefs of your time? For politicians then, as now, you also had to weigh which goals you could accomplish. It would have been hard to fight to free the slaves, a direct attack on the Southern economy, and simultaneously unite the 13 colonies. They did ban importation of slaves in 1808, which isn’t too shabby for the times.

      Look how long it did take to finally end slavery. Even then, Lincoln didn’t do it because he had “evolved” and saw slavery as an evil-he supported slavery, himself, and freed the slaves to create chaos in the CSA rear. Look it up-he was no friend to slaves.

      You can’t really believe people should de-evolve and run around in the woods living like animals. Otherwise, why are you on the interweb dropping comments? Look up Hobbes’ Leviathan and the State of Nature some time…

    “You’re going to see crime levels in America that are going to rival that of a Third World country. Welcome Mexico City. You’re going to start seeing people being kidnapped in this country like they do in other underdeveloping nations. It’s going to be very violent in America.”—Gerald Celente

    “When people get hungry and desperate, things get ugly. And I’ll tell you where it’s really going to get ugly: crime is going to go to levels we’ve never seen before.” —Gerald Celente

    The Banana Republic of America, the Third World cesspool that used to be the United States, is a very violent place, but the violence is going to get much, much worse. If the BRA is this dangerous and unstable now, what is it going to be like when our terrible economy becomes even worse and unemployment becomes even higher? It won’t be pretty. As Gerald Celente says, get ready for a lot of violence. We’ll continue to see acts of thuggery for the sake of thuggery (flash mobs), but most of the violence will be profit-motivated: drug violence (hola Sinaloa Cartel, hola Los Zeta y la Familia Michoacana), kidnapping, carjacking, home invasions, armed robbery in broad daylight. Today’s unemployed IT worker is tomorrow’s kidnapper; today’s unemployed construction worker is tomorrow’s drug trafficker or carjacker. The former USA is now a Third World hellhole, and the BRA will have all the violence, poverty, squalor and crime that Third World hellholes are known for.

    In Mexico and Venezuela, some desperate people earn a living kidnapping the relatives of those who are affluent or those they think might be affluent. Kidnapper gangs are pandemic in those countries; expect the same thing in The Banana Republic of America.

  • Just Wondering

    Such a weird article… no clarity on ethnicity of perps and victims.. and the usual PC BS about youth et al not having jobs. The underlying problem is that they have no morality nor a work ethic – which is to be expected when raised in a fatherless home supported by the federal government.

    Since our manufacturing base has been willfully and maliciously exported, there will be no jobs, not for these degenerates nor for the middle class. Every job in the manufacturing sector supports 5 in the service sector.

    How do you spell fantastically successful? LBJ’s Great Society, NAFTA, GATT, NAU, SPP, all aimed at the destruction of the USA and particularly its middle class. Next the fancy eugenics program, Obamacare, will be added to the other soft kill programs (chemtrails, GMO foods, HFCS, plastics, etc.) to finish off the job, without a shot being fired.

    The bad guys have the bat and ball and have no intention of losing the game.

  • Guido

    You might have a jobs program right there. All those unemployed would-be thugs might make a great security force.

    In Russia and the Ukraine, when I was there, you paid guys in military surplus to watch your stuff while you were out. They stayed right there, too, sitting or standing exactly where you left them until you came back.

    It might not be so long before some smart guy gets organized, puts guys in BDUs, gives them a cell phone and a stick or pepper spray, and goes door-to-door offering their services. For… what would be fair to you? 20$ a day? 30$ a day? 50$ a day? Perhaps by the hour- 10$ an hour?

    Once inflation really ramps up, it will have to be more, but what do you think is fair? How valuable is your stuff? I wouldn’t want to be in your shoes if you stiff those guys, tho…

    They might also make a potent political movement.

    I know a guy who was arrested and imprisoned for 7 years. He told me someday, someone is going to unite convicts into a powerful political movement. I think he said over 150,000+ people a year get out of prison as felons with limited rights. Someday, that # will be in the millions and they will exercise a power all their own-if someone can harness it. It was a scary thought…

  • T A Cooper

    The idea of the article was suggestions for getting us – the U.S. out of this mess! Politically – It is a lie when you hear that taxing corporations (because they’re rich!!) is O.K.. Corporations do not run business in the red. So taxes are just a cost of doing business which is passed on to you (and me). It increases the cost of the product and makes it tough to sell in competition with foriegn (quite often subsidized) products. Our democrat party feeds on high taxes; so our corporate tax (hidden to most tax payers) is the highest in the entire world. We are the losers! That is a prime reason our jobs have gone to other countries. Vote with the tea party (old republicans are at the trough with the dems) or the slide will continue. Next point.

    Spiritually – No baloney; Most people in the U.S. don’t have a clue in how to prove God exists. Do you? I didn’t at one time. Ezekiel 30 tells of a curse, or curses on ancient Egypt. Verse 13 says there would no longer (ever) be a prince (top leader is indicated) in Egypt. For the last 2,500+ years Egypt has never been ruled by an Egyptian. God spoke – that’s it. That is a proof like no other – no nation has stood for so long yet remained a nation without a native son as leader. So, since God does exist His rules are the best we can have. Here is His advice our nation needs most: Deuteronomy 6:6,7; short form – Keep God words inside yourself AND TEACH THEM TO YOUR CHILDREN. This command, especially to parents is at the heart of our countries mess. – By the way, “repent” just means to wise up, see where your wrong, and make a permanent change so you will have a better life.
    THESE TWO POINTS MAKE CURRENT DEMOCRAT LEADERS WANT TO PUKE: Carried out it would end their strangle hold on America. Jobs would come back, crime go down, illegals would no longer drain the U.S.welfare $$, and marriage would come back so children would have a real home to grow up in. Repentance sure is tough!

  • Colin

    Why do we feel nostalgia for a past that never existed?

    Humans have never been that great. I agree with Stephen Hawking’s assessment of our species that we are brutal and self-serving. I feel that if you are looking for a time when humans were excelling at personal responsibility that you are chasing butterflies.

    We are rats on a sinking ship. The rat is thinking for himself or herself foremost. There is little empathy or altruism for the other rats.

    • Highspeedloafer

      You are so wrong Colin.I know a lot of great people.
      Ruby is a 94 year old great grandmother who goes to our church, she is kind,thoughtful and very active. She visits nursing homes, cleans the church for free, and mows her own grass.
      Don is a 73 year old cancer survivor, he cuts grass at our church, watches his granchildren after school and cares for his elderly neighbors.
      Benny grows veggies in his garden to give away to anyone who needs food. He carries people to the doctor, and visits the hospital offering prayers and encouragement.
      I have known these people and dozens like them all my life. They are my friends and my heros. Ya’ll should move and get to know your neighbors, attend a good church, go to one of the covered dish dinners and maybe you will come away with a different attitude. Otherwise you are gonna end up a bitter old man. Please just think about it.

      • Colin

        These are individuals you are speaking about. These are not the groups that guide so much of our civilization. Our institutions – religion, politics, economics, military – are sociopathic and they destroy lives – human and otherwise – and property.

        In a year from now, we will be celebrating the sinking of the RMS Titanic. There were many stories of personal sacrifice and heroism as this ship sank. There were, also, stories of cowardice and fear.

        As the people sat in the boats, hearing the people screaming for help after the boat sank, they sat in their boats paralyzed by fear and shock. Some argued for the boats to return to pick up the drowning, but the majority overrode the minority. Only a couple of boats returned to the drowning.

        This is what happens in human societies. We have a need to get along and not stand out in a crowd. This instinct is very ancient. Individuals may be able to break out of this mindset, but this is rare, and that is why we celebrate these individuals. If our society was more responsible and altruistic, I don’t think our society would feel the need to single out these individuals and praise them.

        If being realistic is being bitter, so be it. I would rather be realistic than naive and believe in a past that never existed.

    • Guido

      I don’t completely agree with you-I think in the past, men were much better men. I look at a good century ago and more, and the examples of people who looked adversity in the face and met it head-on are all over the place.

      Ever hear someone talk about the “days of wooden ships and iron men?” These days, well, they’re not making either one anymore. I’ve known a couple old folks who were hard-core. The joke in my wife’s country is “they’re made out of pre-war material.” The folks who lived through the first half of the 20th century over there could teach us all a thing or two about life.

      I think you’re right about us now, though. My big fear is that we’ve peaked. We do seem more brutish and crude and I fear this is as good as it is gonna get for a long, long time. I’ve always looked at mankind as on more-or-less upward trend with occasional dips and drops here and there, i.e. the dark ages, WWII, etc, but more or less on the upward slope. You could trace our inventions and ideas and developments and they tracked ever-upward. These days, well, I see fewer and fewer reasons to see us as still going up.

      Put it to you this way-remember how they used to think some day men would fly around in flying cars or jetpacks or have spaceships to go to the moon whenever they want and colonies and stuff? Can you think about what a mess it would be if the people you saw everyday had that kind of power? Flying cars?!? I wouldn’t trust any 5 people you randomly picked out of a crowd with a flying car. Heck, the roads are bad enough with earth-bound cars. It wouldn’t be 5 minutes before terrorists figured out a use for one of those. And jetpacks? Cold fusion? Who would trust your average idiot on a space station now?

      I think we’ve pretty much peaked, at least for the foreseeable future, possibly forever. Maybe I’m wrong, but it just seems like we’re all getting dumber. I meet more and more ignorant people. Their actions fill the news every day. I see and hear more superstitious people, too. The new ideas these days are idiotic ones, repackaged and sold as new. Meanwhile, the greatest symbols of progress and advancement are being abandoned-like the shuttle program and the idea of manned spacetravel. We’re putting money into every ridiculous thing under the sun, but nothing outside our orbit. Watch Idiocracy if you haven’t seen it. That’s the future.

      Also-does it seem our energy is directed more and more into entertainment these days? Someone asked the question on an interview show I was listening to-when was the last disease cured? I couldn’t think of a good answer, but it’s been a while. The biggest thing I could think of was Smallpox, and that was, what, the 1970s? The other ones are coming back strong, such as drug-resistant TB, thanks to our stupidity. And STDs. STDs??? How in the hell have we not fixed THAT problem-except for our stupidity? That one was an easy fix, too.

      I’m afraid a new dark age is starting to take hold despite the fact we are reaching new heights in science and medicine. Our people seem to be getting more and more ignorant and less and less able to think critically for themselves. The fact that our nation is severely lacking in scientists and engineers doesn’t help the situation. It all worries me a great deal.

    Don’t worry. With the radiation continuing to spew out of Fukushima (they’re saying 1-3 years before it will be contained) there will eventually be enough radioactivity floating in the air and water of the northern hemisphere to wipe out most, if not all, life within the next 50 years.

    Top 4 Reasons Why There Are More Slaves Today Than Ever Before In Modern History

  • A Dodgy Bloke

    I’ve come to the sad conclusion there is no hope. We have a political class determined to split into red and blue teams, and a public by and large all to willing to follow. Political correctness is eating us alive. We have Corporations willing to pay slave wages anywhere in the world to squeeze every nickel of profit out of a product. We have bankers willing a steal anything not nailed down, not caring about the long-term consequences. We have three wars one winding down our military engaged in God only knows how many places. We have as President way out of his depth, willing to do anything to get reelected and seems to be incapable of doing eighth grade math. We are over fourteen Trillion in debt with one party determined to keep spending money. We have young black people beating up white people for no other reasion then skin color and a MSM will go near the story. I will not go into the growing soap opera in Europe.

    I see a lot of Scripture referring to the Israelites. This nation is not the the chosen nation of the Most High so those promises don’t apply. You can take hold to His Covenant by repenting and keeping His Commandments, but America is destined to fall. This country was built on the backs and blood of the True Israelites… and the time is coming when the Most High will complete His promise to Abraham and we (Israelites) will be gathered back to OUR LAND. and this Babylon will be a heap of ashes. The Truth will always offend many and I have no apologies. Repent, turn to the Most High YaH, keep the Commandments, and love not the world, this includes America/Egypt/Babylon. HALLALUYAH.

    Does anyone remember Howard Beale???
    I think Beale’s rant is more and more apropos every day that passes. (almost seems like he tapped the Tea Party 30 years too soon)

    Beale: I don’t have to tell you things are bad. Everybody knows things are bad. It’s a depression. Everybody’s out of work or scared of losing their job. The dollar buys a nickel’s worth; banks are going bust; shopkeepers keep a gun under the counter; punks are running wild in the street, and there’s nobody anywhere who seems to know what to do, and there’s no end to it.

    We know the air is unfit to breathe and our food is unfit to eat. And we sit watching our TVs while some local newscaster tells us that today we had fifteen homicides and sixty-three violent crimes, as if that’s the way it’s supposed to be!

    We all know things are bad — worse than bad — they’re crazy.

    It’s like everything everywhere is going crazy, so we don’t go out any more. We sit in the house, and slowly the world we’re living in is getting smaller, and all we say is, “Please, at least leave us alone in our living rooms. Let me have my toaster and my TV and my steel-belted radials, and I won’t say anything. Just leave us alone.”

    Well, I’m not going to leave you alone.

    I want you to get mad!

    I don’t want you to protest. I don’t want you to riot. I don’t want you to write to your Congressman, because I wouldn’t know what to tell you to write. I don’t know what to do about the depression and the inflation and the Russians and the crime in the street.

    All I know is that first, you’ve got to get mad.

    You’ve gotta say,”I’m a human being, **********************! My life has value!”

    So, I want you to get up now. I want all of you to get up out of your chairs. I want you to get up right now and go to the window, open it, and stick your head out and yell,

    “I’m as mad as hell,
    and I’m not going to take this anymore!!”

    In the videos of the flash mobs in Philly, Marlyland, and elsewhere, no one in the main stream media seems to be willing to admit what is glaringly obvious from all of these videos: Essentially all of the wayward youths in these videos are black. Why is that??
    This is not meant to be racist. It simply is what it is. I wonder how the media would report on these incidents if all of the perpetrators were white.

    ALL dieties and “Gods” are no more real than ‘The Tooth Fairy” peoples…sorry to be blunt…but until we can rid ourselves of these figments of the imagination AND nationalistic, racial and other dividers of humane thought, we will forever be playing into the hands of those who “govern for our own good”…it is all a Con and the general populous remains “conned”…and a happy and willing participant….

    • WM

      Huey: How do KNOW that “ALL dieties and “Gods” are no more real than the tooth fairy”?? I noticed you capitalized the word “God” so I would assume you must be referring to the Creator God of the Bible. How do you KNOW he is not real????

      Its funny to see people desperately scrambling around trying to find an answer as to why our country, soociety, economy is literally falling apart, and ethics and morality are degrading daily….. When anyone even eludes to the thought that it is because we as a people/nation have turned our backs against the Creator God of the Bible, (The Lord Jesus Christ), It never ceases to amaze me all the resistance, mocking, disbelief, sarcasim hatred for the Bible and what it has to say. People want to any other explaination but the Bible.

      Interestingly, the Bible actually tells us that this will happen, so it really is no surprise. Biblical prophecy is right on schedule in very precisely predicting the new world order, revived roman empire, one world government, one world religion, cash less society, the rule of the coming world leader:anti-christ, famines, wars, etc. Just between the books of Daniel and Revelation, there is SO much precise information about what is happening and will happen, I feel sad for those who do not want to open their eyes and ears to the Truth. The Truth hurts sometimes, true, but truth is truth, and the Bible GUARANTEES and prophetically promises what is coming upon earth. If you choose not to believe, this will not change reality. It is coming. I pray that people everywhere will fall on their faces and REPENT to the true, Living God of the Bible.

    This might have been interesting to read, had it not gotten into a color card finger-pointing contest.

    Now hear this –
    Jerks come in ALL colors.

    The fact that most of the violence shown was done by blacks is more indicative of where it took place than a racial problem.

    Our REAL problem is that no one cares about each other any more. We hide behind the computer screen, feeling free to say whatever rude thing we want to say in the name of freedom.

    How about instead of farming hate online, you go do something nice for a person who comes across your path today – any color person – someone who needs it. whether it is just holding open a door for someone else, try it. Change starts with YOU. You can’t fix an entire city, and you can’t fix this broken economy, but you don’t have to be part of the racial profiling or part of the hatred and bad stuff. Be part of the good stuff.

    Its starting to get real desperate out there. I wonder what the deal was with the IHOP shooter. Americans have become so numb to violence that untill you yourself are victimized, nobody even thinks about it. Even out in the country you have to worry about people stealing your property. We have guard dogs so that will hopefully will deter them but no dog can stop a hungry man. As for teen unemployment, It breaks my heart to see these kids including my 18 yr old kid brother not being able to work and make job skills for himself for the future. When I was a teen, I could walk onto a job site and have a job. If not for that, I would have never learned my trades. (Which include framing, roofing, flooring, cement,and painting.) Even with all these skills, I couldnt find permanent work in this economy. No wonder the kids are desperate for money. The youth were out of control before this collapse happened. Now its like gasoline on the fire.

        It’s now 11:31am. You’re a minute late. Where is my g… hamburger? I paid for decent service, and I expect decent service! And I want strawberries and blueberries on my pancakes too! Okay, I’ll let ya slide for that, but at least give me a hamburger on time!

        11:35am? I should have gone to KFC. Come on people, what’s da matta wit’ya?? I couldva flown to Philadelphia, grabbed a cheese steak and flown back home by the time you got my hamburger made!

    No treats. Just a whole lot of tricks, and evil tricks at that.
    I heard about a bungled armed robbery in California, with some guy dressed up in a Gumby costume. (Sorry, can’t find any links on the net, but it was definitely on my local TV newscast here in Phoenix.)

    The person came into the bank dressed as the TV character Gumby, with a handgun. But he had trouble pulling out the weapon from his costume, and ran out of the bank with nothing.

    Let us hope things don’t get any worse in the next 2 months, or else we will see bank robbing Batmen and kidnapping Supermen. Not to mention a Wonder Woman or two, beating up their ex-boyfriends for not paying child support.

    The Coming

  • George Kadlec

    “Perhaps the definitive work on the rise and fall of civilizations,” writes Fitzpatrick, “was published in 1934 by Oxford anthropologist J.D. Unwin”:

    In “Sex and Culture,” Unwin studied 86 human civilizations ranging from tiny South Sea island principalities to mighty Rome. He found that a society’s destiny is linked inseparably to the limits it imposes on sexual expression and that those sexual constraints correlate directly to its theological sophistication and religious commitment.

    Unwin noted that the most primitive societies had only rudimentary spiritual beliefs and virtually no restrictions on sexual expression, whereas societies with more sophisticated theologies placed greater restrictions on sexual expression, and achieved greater social development.

    In particular, cultures that adopt what Unwin dubbed “absolute monogamy” proved to be the most vigorous, economically productive, artistically creative, scientifically innovative and geographically expansive societies on earth.

    It takes no genius to see where we are headed. Only a miracle could change this. I certainly don’t see one coming.

    The current illigitmacy rates are as follow:

    Black 73%
    Hispanic 53%
    White 29%

    for an overall rate of 41% of the country. We are a country headed for our own demise. We will destroy ourselves.

    Why is it that 12 million illegal aliens can find work, but US citizens can’t? It is because they have found how to live off of the working class. Now the working class is smaller because of the baggage and the government wants more from the workers to support the “will not work” segment. The upper class makes money from the working class’ production. But the biggest problem is our government because the are “money addicts” and there is no way to cure the problem. Face it, we are going to be a third world country in a very short period of time – maybe 10 years at the most; half of this country will not have enough food to eat because the US dollar will no longer have any value – google “bancor currency” and “reserve currency”.

    About this religion garbage…

    Western Europe is nearly atheist. Funny they aren’t falling apart like we are, though Greece may be the exemption.

    The Middle East is heavily religious. Funny, but most of us would NEVER want to move there as those societies (except Israel) are all but basket cases.

    And a fun question for the one describing that carpenter turned hippie cult leader looking like a bearded Anders Breivik. Are you REALLY sure he was a blond hair blue eye? In some churches, the picture shows Jesus with a nice perfect Afro instead. And doesn’t need to waste money at a tanning spa either.

    America is the most religious Western country, and we are as much like the “heathens” as those 19 idiots who came here to drive planes into buildings.


    We only have ourselves to blame.
    The rich, if they made their money honestly, deserve the fruits of their labor. The poor, if poor because they didn’t want to work a job or work at school to get a better job deserve the fruits of their labor.
    There are many things at fault for our economic woes, the first being refusal to acknowledge God Almighty in all our doings and in all our blessings. And being poor is a huge blessing, if you allow yourselves to be humbled and see it. The rich have their reward.
    The second problem is our tax laws, in my opinion. Have a business be a business – however small – and not allowed to be filed as a personal income tax, like small businesses and some corporations. Stop the loopholes and set a fair percentage tax at the same rate for everyone. Stop taxing everything we buy with what’s left over. Keep those with incomes of less than 50k from any tax at all. Tax all corporate earnings and stop allowing corporations to automate their businesses.
    Automation has ruined America. Yes, things are made faster and less expensively, but at the cost if American jobs! Call any company and most nowadays are answered by a machine. Voice automation, though annoying has cut many reception and secretarial jobs as has software that types documents using only your voice. Shorthand takers and typists, secretaries and such are now unnecessary. These are Kona that would pay minimum wage to over thirty dollars per hour!
    It used to be someone without am education could learn a trade or work in a factory. Now those, too, are automated. Jobs that paid minimum wage to over fifty dollars per hour gone. And so on…
    I believe the rich should decide whether to help those less fortunate, not be forced to. And the poor can still find a way to go to school and get better jobs. But no one owes any of us anything. Not God, whom most don’t even acknowledge anymore and not the rich.
    What we are owed is our own effort to make what we want out if our lives and it only comes from us.
    What God is owed is some respect and reverance and our teaching our children about Him. We need to start realizing that what we are living in now is a result of turning our backs on God and trusting in man and money instead.
    I choose to be poor and am happy I have nothing to cloud my vision in a way that pulls me into materialism and away from my creator. If I were financially rich, i would hope I would be the person who would give it to those God would have me give.
    Yeshua is worth far more than gold & silver, rubies and pearls… And mi man gets to heaven but by Yeshua.
    For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.
    I’ll take Yeshua any day over everything else.
    God bless those He wills!

    I think maybe we haven’t realized exactly what it is we and our loved ones are about to face, something very disastrous might be about to happened to us, we also happen to be the most militarily powerful nuclear armed nation in the world. This is no small concern as it could potentially end life on this planet.

    Everyone who posted here can argue about left/right political ideologies all they want, now we have 7 billion people on Earth and its rapidly growing. Earth is getting smaller and smaller and we are fast approaching yet another natural barrier in human cultural evolution, this one is quite a biggy and its unprecedented as well as it is unsung.

    Think of Earth (or any nation) as a pie that gets left out too long. Bacteria grow on the pie and over the process of flourishing on it each individuals slice of the pie gets smaller and smaller and then eventually they all die horribly in their own waste, after consuming each other.

    There is no more pie.
