Kids React To Old ComputersThe disconnect between what Americans should care about and what Americans actually do care about is really quite frightening.  You see, the truth is that far more Americans are drawn to articles with headlines such as the one above than to news stories that actually talk about substantive issues of real importance.  Don’t worry – if you came here hoping to see Kim Kardashian’s wedding dress or kids reacting to old computers, you will get to see those things below.  But in this article I am also going to discuss some of the hard issues that most of the people in our entertainment-addicted society usually ignore.  You see, it is a crying shame that Americans know more about Kim Kardashian than they do about the Federal Reserve.  It is a crying shame that a video about a cat playing Jenga can go viral while the systematic destruction of our most basic freedoms and liberties is virtually ignored by a deeply apathetic society.  My hope is that we can start to wake up a lot more people, because time is running out.


But before we get to the important stuff, I want to be a man of my word.

Firstly, here is a YouTube video about Kim Kardashian’s wedding

Wasn’t her wedding dress just lovely?

And here is a video of kids reacting to old computers

Those kids are just hilarious!

And as promised, here is a video of a cat playing Jenga

There is certainly nothing wrong with any of those videos.

We all need to smile once in a while.

But we have gotten to the point where most people in our entertainment-addicted society demand a constant diet of intellectual pablum and never even stop to think much about the really important things.

Below, I have listed in no particular order some of the incredibly important social, political and moral issues that are being seriously neglected by the American people today…

-Most of the members of Congress and the con man in the White House are deeply corrupt and are marching this country toward oblivion.

-Our politicians have racked up 17.5 trillion dollars of debt that future generations of Americans will be expected to repay.

-A $710,000,000,000,000 derivatives bubble threatens to destroy our financial system at any time.

-Right now, one out of every five American families do not have a single member that is employed.

-The homeownership rate in the United States has dropped to the lowest level in 19 years.

-Our liberties and our freedoms are being systematically destroyed, and America is becoming more of a police state with each passing day.

-More radioactive material from the destroyed Fukushima nuclear facility is released into the Pacific Ocean every single day.  Since the half-life of many of these elements is measured in decades, this radioactive material will be in our food chain for the remainder of our lives.

-The fluoride that they are putting into our water is having a horrible impact on the neurological development of our children.

-Most of the “food” that we are being sold in our grocery stores is highly toxic.

-George Soros has admitted that an organization that he founded “played an important part” in the violent overthrow of the Ukrainian government.

-U.S. relations with Russia continue to get even worse, and Russia is openly discussing a “de-dollarization” strategy which would be a massive blow to the monopoly of the petrodollar.

-The blatant manipulation of the price of gold has finally been publicly exposed and is now out in the open.

-Barack Obama is pushing a new international trade agreement known as the Trans-Pacific Partnership which would result in millions more good jobs being shipped out of the country.

-The federal government has been treating our military veterans like human garbage for years, and nothing ever seems to change no mater how much people protest about it.

-Americans are the most drugged up people in the entire world (this includes both legal and illegal drugs).

-According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, doctors in the United States write more than 250 million prescriptions for antidepressants each year.

-The Ring of Fire is becoming increasingly active and this has tremendous implications for the west coast of the United States.

-We are experiencing the worst drought since the days of the Great Depression, and Dust Bowl conditions are now returning to areas in the heartland of America.

-Approximately one-third of the population of the United States (110 million people) currently has a sexually transmitted disease.

-Very few people seem to care much about this anymore, but more than 56 million American babies have been slaughtered in the United States since Roe v. Wade was decided in 1973.

-All over the globe, scientists are creating extremely bizarre human/animal hybrids in their labs.

-As poverty explodes, the level of government dependence in the U.S. has reached an unprecedented level.

Since the Federal Reserve was established a little bit more than 100 years ago, there have been 18 recessions or depressions, the value of the U.S. dollar has declined by 98 percent, and the U.S. national debt has gotten more than 5000 times larger.  And now the Federal Reserve has set the stage for the greatest financial crash in history, but most Americans still don’t even understand what the Federal Reserve is or how it operates.

-The Bilderberg Group is meeting in Copenhagen, Denmark and yet most Americans still have no idea what the Bilderberg Group is or who is involved.

Of course this list could easily be much, much longer.

But hopefully I have made my point.

We are facing crisis after crisis, and all of our long-term problems as a society continue to get even worse.

We desperately need the American people to wake up and start caring about these things, but most of them are so glued to the entertainment being fed to them by their phones, their computers and their televisions that they might as well be zombies.

So what do you think?

Is there any hope for the American people?

    No, sadly, they won’t wake up! I work with several dozen and they could care less. We’re doomed!

    • TruthIsAll

      We’ll see more start waking up when they’re starving and black boots start stomping down the street and across necks. But even then, the poor dumb fools will be more willing to serve their new masters for scraps of food than to rise up and set things right. The history of free nations is short because freedom requires much of the individual to secure it. Many would rather just kneel and serve a lord for a daily ration. We’re just reverting back to the norm of human society.

    • jsmith

      That’s right! Just the other day I engaged a sociology professor visiting California from Arizona in a light conversation about the economy, and he told me to change the conversation, and if the economy falters “to let it happen when it happens.” Let it be! It’s the same with friends and family members. Let’s not talk about politics or the economy.
      Look out after yourself and your family!

    • prestodo

      @ Pam
      The correct term is “could NOT care less”. If they could care less, then that means they do appreciate it.

  • kathym2

    I am over 40 and unemployed and fear I will never be hired again. People have no clue how bad it is and how hard it is to get a job, any job. People say, go to school but what do I live on while going to school? This country is screwed.

    • K

      Kathy, I am so sorry to hear, your situation is still ongoing. People talk about school as a reflex. It used to be a solution, now just a possible solution. Usually a lot of money to spend on a maybe.

    • Kristen Marie Embler

      Kathym2, there are only a select few degrees that can be considered worth the money. Yet these same degree holders(doctor, engineer, etc) are having problems, too. No one is safe in this economy. I feel deeply for you and hope that you will find an answer to your problems soon.

  • Jacob Shelton

    I think to answer the last sentence of this article, No one can hope to change the damage to our country or society except through God.All we can do is try to hold on and pray with faith that he will save us.

  • gwanaambi

    To answer your question Michael, no…there isn’t hope for a great deal of them. I’m OK with escapism…we all need that from time to time…but there’s a difference between leisurely pursuits & perpetually having ones head in the sand (or bodily orifice).

  • K

    I have seen one small change. People who used to be totally unaware, of just about everything. Now seem to be aware, that something bad is going on. Do they have any interest in details? No, and their favorite phrase is, there is nothing I can do about it. So I do see a very slow change taking place. Will it be enough? No, not in the short time we have left.

    • FirstGarden

      If their shrinking pocketbooks are eye-opening, there’s about to be another great awakening.

  • Magdiel

    No,there is no hope,unless something extreme happens. Unfortunately technology has been more a curse than a blessing for the world. Don’t get me wrong,it has been very beneficial in many areas,like healthcare,and I am very glad about it,but unfortunately it has more negative implications to it than positive ones. The things you can do and watch in front of a computer or a TV,video games are a TOTAL curse for our young children,this lack of physical activity in men and women because of technology is having a bad influence in all of us,like men becoming more and more effeminate to the point of being a total joke and disgrace compared to our ancestors. Thus the barrier between the sexes has become so weak that many women seeing it opt to take the path of lesbianism,etc. If I enumerate all the negative effects the advancement of technology has brought to the world I would have to write a lot. So in order for the society to go back to its senses,
    something catastrophic has to happen in which technology disappears from the face of the earth. And if our enemies,with the same lack of technology,choose to ally themselves to wipe this nation from the face of the earth,we will fight,not with aircrafts or robots,no,but with our own hands and feet,like it used to be in the old days. That way men will play their role in society,and women will have to seek in men the security they always sought before the damned technology came along. And of course,with less entertainments,luxuries and comforts in this life,people will tend to seek more after God and read His Holy Word. The idea,in essence,is to go back to the times of the pioneers. That’s the only solution I see to this problem.

  • USA_objector

    Michael, don’t lose hope quite yet. Most sheeple will never get it, but the MSM is losing viewers by the minute, the alternative media is seeing numbers spike up, and the comments sections are brimming with those who are awake and angry.

  • Byzcat

    The only thing that will wake people up is a real catastrophe that affects the entire nation, but by then it will be too late. Too many today are invincibly ignorant and/or infected with a toxic worldview, immersed in selfishness, and amoral. The Republic i grew up in is dead, killed by sociopaths and psychopaths in government and corporations. Expect that as we descend into a new dark ages, people will become more violent and selfish. This is the natural consequence of the post-Christian era we live in.

    • Ashan

      I agree Byzcat! I notice how the violence and hatred are growing and I fear something like the genocide in Rawanda is coming.

  • BooBoo

    Bread and circus! Keep the masses occupied.

  • Rebecca

    Okay, I confess, I watched the Jenga cat video… I refuse to watch anything about Kim Kardashian. I don’t think Americans will change without a major crisis. Sadly, most of them will die.

    • Cynical Guy 42

      I watched the Jenga video and the Kids React video, but not the Kardashian one.

  • Kristen Marie Embler

    Meanwhile, while people are focused on all these circus acts, jobs are being lost by the thousands.

  • Richard

    Good article, Michael. Congratulations. Do you see how much stronger and more effective it is without the rhetorical questions?

  • Seen2013

    I’d add the study that used pictures to make allegation differences between Conservatives and Liberals. The reality is that people are encouraged to be distracted from the issues with cheery or gossip mechanisms. Frankly, if I didn’t read the small excerpt of this article, I would have clicked on my next bookmark instead. Unlike that study, I want to be informed even when the news is bad rather than just focusing on something cherry or hopeful.
    Frankly, since I have at least summary information on the Federal Reserve, I also know the minimum wage increase and living wage issue are symptom treatment. Even the USSR admitted to using inflation rates to protect their elites, and our system and economy are designed to exchange capital and wealth through consumerism predominantly to the top while the top possesses a capital market that caters to their accumulation of wealth furthering the wealth gap. There mere fact both parties avoid highlighting this in any meaningful way should be very telling. Ironically, the two national parties became two with the election of Andrew Jackson.

    Sure, it’s nice to find something cheery or sit down to your favorite book or show, but the bottom line is that bread and circuses only serve to distract.

  • Brenda

    Excellent article. I had to click, I couldn’t understand why you were covering this stuff. Great Job.

  • Hiroshi Yamamoto

    The society (not only in USA but also in Europe, China or Japan) is simply doomed. Especially those aged before 30. Naive consumptionist zombies living in a naive bubble. Decadency and hedonism is at peak and it will lead to a civilization collapse sooner or later. The young generation is spoiled beyond repair. When changes are so fast it will finally crash just like a speeding car.

  • FirstGarden

    ALL governments are corrupt.

    They just hide it differently.

  • Jim Davis

    I like the cat that plays jenga video. That kitty is way smarter than Obama.

  • Cynical Guy 42

    I agree with your claim that entertainment is not bad in and of itself, but our society overemphasizes it. I remember hearing a claim people could name more American Idol judges than Supreme Court judges, and Big Mac ingredients than Ten Commandments. I guess that shows what our priorities are.

    • Cynical Guy 42

      To be fair, I think the old computers video had some educational value – I hadn’t seen a computer that was that old!

  • bob cratchette

    yes our country for the most part is filled with sheeple and ostriches

  • Laura Y.

    Excellent article. It is terribly sad, our state of affairs. Yet, I do not believe that all is lost. I do not believe that the population of the US is completely lost, BUT the ones who are glued to the media and video will be. A change of heart is needed and it may take a serious incident to get that to occur.

  • Jerry

    Garbage. We are content with garbage. No one cares

  • Susan

    It’s sad to see the world descend, but there is always hope. That hope may come in the form a disaster of some kind that would knock us on our feet. I’m afraid to say, perhaps as far back as ancient times. Whatever it takes!

  • Rufus T Firefly

    Nowl that Kim is married, when is Paris Hilton walking down the aisle wearing white as a symbol of her purity and innocence?

  • A Dodgy Bloke

    It’s called cognitive dissidence basically the closer you are to a crisis the more likely you are to ignore it. Human beings have never been good at dealing with a problem proactively. As a rule they ignore the problem until it’s massive then they have to deal with it. It doesn’t help that critical thinking in dead, and most people get their news from the MSN. I’ve come to the realization the system is doomed. We will stair step to a lower and lower standard of living. The wild card is it will be global.

    I hope that everyone knows how much I value the discussions that take place on this site. You guys are awesome, and I love to hear what you think.

    I know that sometimes it is frustrating for people because
    this website is only updated a few times a week usually. That makes it very difficult to keep up with the pace with which things are actually happening. At times I haven’t posted an article for a day or two, but people want to talk about something that just happened an hour or two ago.

    In an effort to provide the very best news and information on a more rapid basis, I have launched (or rather re-launched) a new flagship website. It is a domain that I have not done much with for several years, but I think that now is the time to dust it off. I have updated it with a sleek, modern design and with some cutting edge features.

    The website is called The Most Important News and I just started posting on it today. My goal is to update it with dozens of stories on a regular basis and to transform it into one of the best destinations for alternative news on the Internet.

    I hope that everyone will check it out. You can find The Most Important News right here…

    If you have any comments or questions about the new site, please feel free to contact me.

    Telling America, “Nothing to see here; just a bunch of conspiracy-theory wackos.” has accomplished much.

    I would say most Americans aren’t apathetic, just naive and overly trusting of the media. And why not? They have been told that America is the best nation in the world, so why think any of the so-called conspiracies are remotely believable? What’s to be so worried about? they say.

    It’s going to take a blatant, in-your-face, your eyes don’t deceive you, crisis for America to “wake up”. By then, it’s too late. The newest iron curtain has dropped.

    Perhaps this is the beginning of the great deception talked of in the Bible. If so, how much greater will the deception become before destruction?

    I read and keep up on all these things. It gets overwhelming sometimes because I have no idea what to do to help except pray. Which is not a last resort, God is the only one who can fix any of this mess. But, sometimes I really need a break and some laughter. Laughter is good medicine.

  • Reality man

    Red horse… War. Black horse… Hyperinflation.Pale horse … Death. Where do you think the fourth part of the earth is? Then massive martyrdom… Camps built.. Stage set. Only The Lord knows the exact days … We are here.. Jesus is Lord .. His strength is the best prep tool available to all of mankind and is free! Yea it’s all just a fairy tale .. Sure it is.. Every knee shall bow.. Regardless.

  • FreeThinker

    People want things that make them feel good. That is why many people are not interested in truthful or important news. Some people will even avoid having a friend that wants to discuss real topics and real news because they say it makes them feel sad and the person that wants to discuss reality is depressing. Just as the Bible told us, “people have become lovers of pleasure more than lovers of righteousness.”
