12 Shocking Clues About What America Will Look Like When The Next Great Economic Crisis Strikes

Crime Scene - Photo by JRLibbyThe collapse of American society is accelerating.  For the moment, much of our social decay is being masked by the tremendous level of affluence that we are experiencing.  It has been reported that 4 out of every 5 adults in the United States "struggle with joblessness, near-poverty or reliance on welfare for at least parts of their lives", but in general Americans still enjoy a debt-fueled standard of living that is far beyond what most of the rest of the world enjoys.  When that debt-fueled standard of living permanently disappears, it is going to unleash chaos unlike anything that America has ever seen before.  Right now, economic conditions in this country are not anywhere close to where they were before 2008, but this is just the beginning.  We are in the midst of an ongoing economic collapse which is going to get much, much worse in the years ahead.  When the next major wave of the economic crisis strikes, millions of people are going to become extremely desperate.  And desperate people do desperate things.  We are already starting to see this play out all over the nation, but this is only a preview of coming attractions.  What we are going to witness in future years is going to be almost too horrible for words.

So how can I be so sure that this is going to happen?  After all, the United States didn't descend into complete and utter chaos during the Great Depression of the 1930s.  Wouldn't an economic depression unfold in a similar manner today?

Unfortunately, a lot has changed since then.  A lot more Americans were self-sufficient back in those days, and the truth is that the character of our nation has been rotting and decaying for decades.  In a previous article, I described it this way...

"We are simply not the same country that we used to be.  Americans are proud, selfish, greedy, arrogant, ungrateful, treacherous and completely addicted to entertainment and pleasure.  Our country is literally falling apart all around us, but most Americans are so plugged into entertainment that they can't even be bothered to notice what is happening."

Just last weekend, there were "mini-riots" in several U.S. states when "technical issues" caused the food stamp system to go haywire for a few hours.

What would have happened if there had been an extended outage or if the political crisis in D.C. had caused food stamps to be completely cut off at some point in November?

Let's be thankful that we did not have to find out.

But even though major food stamps riots may have been averted (at least for now), there are a whole host of other signs that America is going to become a very unstable place during the next major economic downturn.  The following are 12 shocking clues about what America will look like when the next great economic crisis strikes...

#1 Would you continue to work as a bus driver if you were stabbed while driving or if a passenger poured urine all over you?  Just check out what has been going on in Detroit lately...

After two drivers were recently stabbed and another had urine poured on her by an angry rider, union officials representing bus drivers for the city of Detroit are set to protest in front of city hall at 10 a.m. on Monday.

#2 We are starting to see a lot of "group crimes" happen all over America.  For example, just the other day in Brooklyn, New York a gang of 10 young thugs dragged a young couple out of their vehicle and brutally beat them...

Ronald Russo was dragged to the ground. Then he was punched and kicked in the head. He felt more blows all over his body, investigators said. He suffered a fractured nose, a broken septum, a blood clot and abrasions to his shoulder. He was treated and released from Beth Israel Medical Center.

In the midst of the attack, there was a steady chorus of epithets. “White motherf-----!” screamed the attackers, who ranged in age from 12 to 18.

Alanna Russo, 30, was calling 911 when the 12-year-old girl pulled the woman’s hair and threw her to the ground. The victim’s head slammed into the concrete. She suffered a black eye, bleeding and difficulty breathing, prosecutors said, but she refused medical attention.

#3 A lot of people assume that they are perfectly safe inside their own vehicles but that is not the case at all.  A story in the New York Post about a gang of bikers that ruthlessly hunted down a young family that was driving an SUV made national headlines a few weeks ago...

A gang of bikers terrorized a dad driving with his wife and baby daughter on the West Side Highway — chasing after their SUV and then dragging the man out and beating him to a pulp in front of his horrified family, authorities said.

When the bikers caught up with this family they showed the father of the baby daughter absolutely no mercy...

One biker can be seen on the video ripping off his helmet and using it to bash in Lien’s driver’s-side window.

The crew pummeled Lien on the pavement in front of his wife, Rosalyn Ng, and their 2-year-old daughter, police sources said.

Lien, who also was slashed during the melee, was rushed to Columbia University Medical Center. He needed stitches to his face and chest and had two black eyes.

#4 We are living at a time when hearts are becoming very cold.  Some Americans are becoming so desperate for money that they will do almost anything to get it.  In fact, one couple in Tennessee has actually been charged with selling their four daughters for use in sex films...

An East Tennessee couple is facing a list of charges, accused of selling their children to take part in sex films.

Connie Sue McCall, 40, and her husband, Ronnie Lee McCall, 61, of Johnson City have been charged by a federal grand jury.

Paperwork shows the couple was selling their four daughters.

Prosecutors say the four girls were between the ages of 5 and 16 when this happened.

Could you imagine such a thing happening in your neighborhood?

Perhaps it is happening, but you just don't know that it is going on.

#5 And it is not only older people that are having their hearts grow cold.  It is happening to young people too.  Last week, a 17-year-old girl was caught carrying around a dead baby (which she probably gave birth to) in a shopping bag in a Victoria's Secret store right in the heart of Manhattan...

The dead baby found in the teen’s shopping bag at a Victoria’s Secret store in Manhattan was born alive and then asphyxiated, police said Friday, as the macabre discovery turned toward a possible homicide case.

Police believe 17-year-old Tiana Rodriguez gave birth to the baby at a friend’s house and that the infant was later asphyxiated. However, the city medical examiner’s office said an autopsy was inconclusive, and more tests were needed.

Who does something like that?

#6 Sadly, a lot of mothers appear to be losing the natural affection that they should have for their children.  Just check out another incident that happened in New York City recently...

So much for no child left behind.

A stroller-toting mom who used her 1-year-old son as cover during a massive candy shoplifting spree at a downtown Duane Reade used the tot's pram as a battering ram when workers confronted her — and then ran away without the baby, the NYPD said.

#7 One of the clearest signs that American society is decaying is the fact that groups of kids are banding together and agreeing to commit absolutely horrible crimes.  We have seen this with the "flash mob" robberies that are plaguing many cities, but what is even worse is when groups of kids band together to commit violent acts.  In Pennsylvania recently, a group of teens cheered on attackers as they beat up a 15-year-old girl...

Speaking exclusively to CBS 3, a 15-year-old high school student, whose identity we are concealing, described a terrifying attack by a gang of at least nine teenage boys as she was leaving an Interboro High School football game Monday night.

The teenage victim described first being taunted by the attackers, who followed her down a neighborhood street, cursing and spitting at her, before she was repeatedly kicked and punched, suffering at least one blow to her head.

The attackers even tried to throw her in front of a passing vehicle and nobody tried to stop them...

The victim says as at least two of the teenagers pummeled her, the others cheered them on shouting, “Come on, let’s get her!” At one point, the victim says, the gang tried to throw her under the wheels of a passing car, which swerved, narrowly missing her.

What is happening to this country?

#8 We have also been hearing about a lot of "gang rapes" lately as well.  The following is an excerpt from a first-hand account from a 14-year-old girl in Missouri that experienced this type of horrible ordeal...

About five shots tall, I drank it. I guess I didn't know how badly it would mess me up. But the boys who gave it to me did.

Then it was like I fell into a dark abyss. No light anywhere. Just dark, dense silence -- and cold. That's all I could ever remember from that night. Apparently, I was there for not even an entire hour before they discarded me in the snow.

You can read the rest of her sobering story right here.

Are you starting to understand why I am so convinced that we have a major problem with our young men in America today?

Instead of raising young gentlemen, we are raising wild animals that seem to have very little self-control.

#9 And sometimes the public does not do anything to stop sexual assaults even when they happen on public streets.  In a recent incident in Athens, Ohio, not only did the public not stop a sexual assault, many actually took photos of the assault and posted them on social media websites...

Horrific photos of an alleged rape in progress have been shared on social media after crowds at a college homecoming celebration chose to take pictures and videos of the sex act rather than stopping it.

Would such a thing have happened in our country 50 years ago?

Of course not.

We need to come to grips with how far we have fallen.

#10 In America today, young kids can beat a homeless man to death and it barely even makes a blip on the news.  I'll bet hardly any of you have heard about what happened recently to a homeless man in New Jersey...

Three teenagers were in custody Saturday morning, on charges of beating a homeless man to his death in Hoboken, N.J.

As CBS 2’s Janelle Burrell reported, Hudson County Acting Prosecutor Gaetano T. Gregory said two 13-year-olds and a 14-year-old were charged in the Sept. 10 death of Ralph Eric Santiago, 46.

What would cause 13-year-olds and 14-year-olds to behave so savagely?

Could it be because we are raising them in a society where basic morality is not taught any longer?

#11 Our young people certainly do not have much respect for the very elderly anymore either.  Instead, the elderly are looked at as "weak" and "easy prey".  Just check out what recently happened to a 70-year-old man in upstate New York...

A 70-year-old man was seriously injured early Saturday morning after being attacked outside of a 7-Eleven in Syracuse.

Police say James Gifford had just left the store at the intersection of Valley Drive and South Street just after 6:00 a.m. and was attacked by a group of five or six black males, according to Syracuse Police.

Police also said this appears to be an unprovoked incident with an innocent victim.

#12 In this day and age, it is very hard to tell who you can trust.  You might meet someone on the street and they might smile and seem very nice, but inside they may be full of all kinds of garbage.  For example, just check out what one man in the Boston area planned to do

A Boston-area man, who was planning to kidnap children, lock them in a basement dungeon, rape and eat them, should be imprisoned for at least 27 years, federal authorities said in court documents filed this week.

Geoffrey Portway pleaded guilty in May to distribution and possession of child pornography and solicitation to commit a crime of violence, according to court documents. He is scheduled to be sentenced on September 17.

“Portway has pled guilty to some of the most vile and heinous crimes known to our society,” federal prosecutors wrote in a sentencing recommendation.

This is how twisted and perverted our society has become.

A lot of Americans believe that if we could just elect "the right politicians" or if we could just change our economic system or if we could just fix one particular issue that everything would be right in America again.

Unfortunately, what we are facing is not so simple.  Our problems are not just in Washington D.C. or on Wall Street.  The truth is that our biggest problem is what is going on inside of us.

America is rotting and decaying on the inside, and the next great economic crisis is going to reveal just how bad things have gotten.

Or could it be possible that I am overstating things?  Please feel free to share what you think about the ongoing collapse of our society by posting a comment below...

    First, the government and society removes God from everything. This leads moral relativity where there’s no absolute truths, only what’s true for you. At the same time, parents do nothing to stop or curb the amount and type of video games that their kids play with most of it being very violent. And sad, but true, most churches are becoming irrelevant because they’ve changed their services to be more like the world, instead of remaining true to the bible and God.

  • nekksys

    Michael,

    Your commentaries are spot on. I’d like to see a Big Picture article from you. You have touched on several excellent points and I would love to see how you paint the entire picture of where America is now, the directions we are heading as a nation and what the end result will be if we don’t pull our collective heads out and get busy fixing our country.

    Why ignore the racial angle? Many if not most of the violent incidents involved blacks.

    One of the biggest reasons things are going to turn bloody is the incredible racial and cultural diversity that did not exist in the 1930s.

    Not only has America imported hostile non-White populations, but these groups are encouraged to hate Americans and to act on those racial grievances.

  • frank1569

    ‘Or could it be possible that I am overstating things?’

    Yes, it’s possible. A few anecdotal stories in a country of 300M+ people doesn’t mean the sky is falling.

    Everyday, hundreds of thousands of Americans teach others, put out fires, save kitties from trees, care for our elderly, battle ‘bad guys’ in at least a half-dozen countries, rescue accident victims, feed the poor and needy, etc.

    None of which Big Corporate Media cares about – because ‘good news’ doesn’t spike ratings. But, in the broader scheme, the good news far outweighs the bad.

  • Rick

    Things have always been bad. In the sixties, about age 10, I read about a Chicago attack on a woman in public where nobody helped. I called the onlookers cowards but my mother said “Why get involved? You could get killed.” I replied, “I don’t think I want to live in a world where nobody cares enough to get involved in a situation like that.” My wife worked in Chicago Heights ER for most of the 60′s. Rough area, several times a week an elderly person was brought in severely kicked, dozens of times or more, all over their body – often fatally. So while I agree that things appear to be getting slowly worse, it is only honest to admit that evil and cruelty have always been a part of human nature.

    Michael, what happened to Germany at the end of WWII? After we fire-bombed Dresdin, after the Russians slaughtered everybody? That was terrible, horrible, for everybody involved. But we got passed it. Things changed, but not really. The population splintered and wove itself into the fabric of Europe. Germany remained, and rebuilt, and re-treatised with The Good Guys, and now 70 years later, they are the powerhouse in Europe. The terrible and the horrible will happen, but life goes on, you know?

  • Christine

    Do you see America and our current world in this prophecy? It’s straight from the Good Book. Shows just how close we are in these last of the last days, before Christ’s return. But those of us who love Him and believe He is who He says He is, do not have to fear. Christ Himself tells us not to be afraid. We know in our hearts the glory that’s coming, and if we humble ourselves before God, ask His forgiveness, and do what He says in our hearts, we can be assured of His unfathomable love and protection. And when true chaos strikes, rather than be just out for ourselves, we can choose to be a blessing for others, a comforting light for those who have no faith or hope at all, who truly do have something to fear: eternity without God. We can point them to their loving Father. It’s all part of the plan, and the Lord will never leave us or forsake us. So, prepping for emergency necessities for our physical needs is good, but prepping for our spiritual needs will be even more important. Pray! Get into the Word, love your heavenly Father! And trust Him through it all!
    Matthew 24:1-14 (NKJV):
    Now as He sat on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to Him privately, saying, “Tell us, when will these things be? And what will be the sign of Your coming, and of the end of the age?” Mat 24:4 And Jesus answered and said to them: “Take heed that no one deceives you. Mat 24:5 “For many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am the Christ,’ and will deceive many. Mat 24:6 “And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled; for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. Mat 24:7 “For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places. Mat 24:8 “All these are the beginning of sorrows. Mat 24:9 “Then they will deliver you up to tribulation and kill you, and you will be hated by all nations for My name’s sake. Mat 24:10 “And then many will be offended, will betray one another, and will hate one another. Mat 24:11 “Then many false prophets will rise up and deceive many. Mat 24:12 “And because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold. Mat 24:13 “But he who endures to the end shall be saved. Mat 24:14 “And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in all the world as a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come.

    There are hundreds of millions of people in this country. Of course there are going to be stories like these.

    How about Great Depression II will be worse for these reasons:

    In the 1930′s, the US was an oil exporter. We now import half of the oil we use (US oil production peaked at roughly 9.5 mlb/day in December, 1970).

    In the 1930′s, we were a creditor nation. We are now a debtor nation.

    Most people still farmed back then. There is hardly any self-reliance now, amongst roughly 300 million.

  • GoldenEagles

    There is a substantial basis for concern in this area. And I want to explain why.

    When Mr. Synder says that this is not the same country that was in existence during the Great Depression, where year after year tens of thousand of people stood in soup lines in a peaceful and organized manner, and for the most part, did not ransack the grocery stores of their day. We live in a different country today. The difference is explained by the level of Divine Providence which America qualified to receive in that day to stop the most egregious forms of evil from using the frustrations and anger of the people as conduits through which these forces of darkness could act, and thus multiply, by many orders of magnitude, the destructive nature of their outer conduct.

    These forces of darkness, which take advantage of the weaknesses of the people, weaknesses of character that produce the inner fractures of fear, frustration, and anger, are represented by the demonic hordes which live within the astral plane, which is the same frequency spectrum as the lower emotional frequency of the polluted feelings of mankind. These creatures are organisms of pure hatred and malice. The demonic hordes are comprised of the angels who rebelled against God long ago, and their ever-multiplying descendents, who are raised up, in their domain, in the tradition of pure hatred unto God, and tremendous anger unto God. And because they cannot attack God directly, they attack the Purposes of God in the earth, primarily the redemptive program, which is designed to awaken the Children of God unto their divine origins, and to call them home, and to prepare them to return home, to transform them sufficiently so that they are deemed worthy to return home. Worthiness in this respect is simply the judgment of God as to the potential of a particular soul to comply with the standards of the heaven world once returned to the heaven world. As no one is allowed to return home to the heaven world who carries with them seeds of the original rebellion. The forces of darkness attack this program of redemption directly, primarily through the manipulation of the feeling worlds of embodied souls, creating divisions, polarization, hatred and war among the peoples of the earth. All of those qualities are the seeds of the original rebellion, and if a soul cannot transcend them, they must stayed tied to the redemptive program until they are sufficiently cleansed of these tendencies.

    The Master Jesus Christ included in the body of Teaching that he brought to the Children of God in the earth, the knowledge of the existence of the demonic hordes. In dozens of places throughout the four gospels, he indicated the need to identify the influence of these manipulators, and to cast them out. Of course, mankind err greatly, when, in confronting this important body of the Teachings of Christ, their response is to laugh and mock. But we dot no condemn, but have only pity, which is realization of the need to extend compassion to those who are instruments of the very mockery of these darkside forces. After all, as it is written, the slave is our brother. After all, when the Master said, that blessed are they who are not offended in him, he gave us an essential point of understanding. Why are these individuals blessed who are not offended in Christ? It is because they have the protection of the Angelic Host, which blocks this mockery from being transmitted through them by these demonic entities. How does an individual gain this blessing of protection? They follow the Teachings of Christ, not just in word, but in deed. They weave the Teachings of Christ into the very fabric of their lives by the study and the practice thereof. They are not the ones who strut around declaring that they are saved, and look down their noses at those they believe who are not. They are the ones who allowed the Master to come into their hearts, to be transformed from the inside out, into conduits of the very Love of God. The Power of Love is within them. Within their blood streams flow a deep respect for Christ, a quality of being, composed of a Light that flows out of their own hearts, which is the first defense against any encroachment of mockery.

    Inner city attitudes were much more stable during the 1920′s, 1930′s, and the 1940′s. Why? Because the Angelic Hosts were given, as a general rule, the authority to safeguard the feeling worlds of the people from the most direct and destructive manipulation from these darkside forces. The Angelic Hosts do not have that authority today. As a general rule, they do not have the authority to give that assistance today. This is the most important point to understand. They do not have this authority today. Why?

    During the years of the Great Depression, the institution of School Prayer was operative throughout most of the nation. The practice of public prayer in the public schools was an organic mechanism of national devotion and supplication that allowed the Angelic Hosts to intercede in the collective affairs of the nation. The public square, as it is called, is a special domain of freewill. It is the domain of the national freewill. The Angelic Hosts cannot operate in the public square unless they have national authorization to do so. Back then, through the practice of school prayer, a practice that was founded in the consent of the governed, these prayers could be answered within the public square to a great extent. Therefore, stability and order were the general characteristics of the American Public square in those years. Even in years of great stress, stabilility and order prevailed.

    There were exceptions of course, because there are other factors that come into account, in the decision process that determines what level of Divine Intercession would be allowed in a given circumstance. If all factors are fulfilled, God’s protection of a culture is total, peace is maintained, and abundance and prosperity are the experience of every citizen. To the extent that various factors in this equation are not fulfilled, or only partially fulfilled, then the level of Divine Intercession that God is able to give to the people will fall short of the ideal. The bottom line is that America is not a perfect nation. But traditionally, and in those years as well, America was in the process of fulfilling many of the important criteria factors that allowed a substantial level of Divine Intercession to be given to the people. One of the major factors, that of prayer in the public schools, was present, and it was activated and operating. The level of reverence unto God in the culture as a whole was substantially greater than it is today.

    In 1962, the U.S. Supreme Court banned the practice of prayer in the public schools. This cut back by about 90% the amount of Divine Intercession that God could authorize in the domain of the public square.

    It is no a coincidence that we saw in the decades of the 1960′s the public losing it will to fight for freedom in Vietnam, and what is more, taking on an attitude of mockery in relationship to the fight for freedom itself, and to express a willingness, a willingness Americans have never before showed, to to throw away, and make worthless the sacrifice of tens of thouands of Americans who had given their lives for the cause of freedom, and to subsquently abandon an ally nation (South Vietnam) into the hands of an officially Atheist totalitarian power (North Vietnamese Communism).

    It is no coincidence, as well, that we saw in the late 1960′s gargantuan levels of race riots in the inner cities of America.

    It is no coincidence, as well, that we saw a movement towards the legalization of abortion, which is a loss of the will of the American people to stand up and fight for the right not just for freedom, but for life itself. 55 million children in the womb have been slaughtered since that time.

    The shield of light that the Angelic Host could place around the people, around the mindspace that related to the conduct of our affairs in the public square, was no longer there. The influence and pressure of the darkside was felt directly by millions who have never felt that invludence before. They lost touch with their founding principles. They lost touch with the American ideal. And they accepted defeatism as a substitute.

    I can tell you that the opposition to Ronald Reagan’s Strategic Defense Initiative has its origin in these darkside forces that mock the idea of American exceptionalism, and induce the spirit of defeat into the hearts and minds of those who have no shield of light around them. Compare and contrast, to see if this particular opposition was wise, or nearly fatal, as we contemplate, that while Communist China does not have hundreds of nuclear weapons today, but only dozens, that a well-advanced and operational missile defense would protect us from being manipulated by this threat today, the glaring lack of which will have significant implications in the near term, unfortunately.

    Wherever mindless hate operates in the public square, you see a place where the Angelic Hosts could offer a shield of light, for the guarding of that public square, between these vulnerable individuals, and the great power of hatred that the demonic hordes can send through them. Every successful attack on the American public square that we have seen since 1962, which includes the Ford Hood, Texas, mass shooting on November 5, 2009, the Fort Hood, Texas, hiccups shooting on September 25, 2012, U.S. Navy Yard, Washington D.C., mass shooting September 16, 2013, and all the school shootings, and all workplace shootings.

    In response to the latest mass shooting at the U.S. Navy Yard in Washington D.C., CNN published this interesting compilation of data: “25 Deadliest Mass Shootings in U.S. History Fast Facts”, which I will summarize here, with the addition of three which they missed, one in 1963, the assassination of JFK, and the assassination of Robert Kennedy, and the assassination of Martin Luther King both in 1968, which I include as mass shootings because each one basically shot the heart out of millions and millions of Americans.

    The above does not include bombings, and acts that are defined as terrorism against the United States, foreign or domestic. Wikipedia has some useful data that will give us a rough idea of the price we have paid for eliminating the practice of school prayer: List of assassinations and acts of terrorism against Americans. Altogether, Sixty (60) incidents are listed from the year 1837 to the year 2013. Twelve (12) incidents are listed from 1837 to 1954, a period of 117 years. This equates to an average of .1 incident per year. Forty-Eight (48) incidents are listed from 1963 to 2013, a period of 50 years. This equates to .96 incidents per year. This represents a nearly a ten fold increase in terrorist attacks against America’s public square for the years following the banning of school prayer.

    Getting to the primary point of Mr. Snyder’s article above, all the points he brought up are symptoms of this lack of Divine Intercession that is available to America at this point in her history.

    Things are more crude and violent today because the force of the demonic entities have an unobstructed path to operate through now, especially in mob situations. This lack of Divine Intercession in America today, makes it increasingly unlikely that a lid can be kept on the people’s emotions when conditions become very severe economically.

    If situations are so tense and fearful as to powerfully tempt people to choose the path of violence, if the individual character is not able to provide this counterbalancing force by virtue of his own character resources, derived from his relationship to God, there must be a counterbalancing force. This is the where the Angelic Hosts come in to play. Under conditions like this, they can extend strong forcefields of Light into the temples of these souls, reminding them that there are always alternatives to violence, and equally important there are consequences associated with violence.

    There are people who have, in their relationship with God, this counterbalancing force established in their own character, a force of light sufficient, as noted above, to block the temptation, which the demonic force would to try to apply, to escalate the situation.

    However, there are those people who do not have this counter balance force already established. And the intercession of the Angelic Hosts is required to help them to hold the balance, and thus the balance for peace in the public square. This balancing force is not available to us today within the domain of the public square.

    While survival food is a necessary consideration, the most important survival mechanism you can have is a strong prayer momentum already established, that will allow the Angelic Host to give this kind of assistance to you, where the demonic hordes will be blocked from amplifying unto death, the feelings of fear, anger and hate, in those whom you will come into contact with during the trying times ahead. As it was said of old, there but by the Grace of God go I.

    Given the central cause of our problem, and the fact that the path to the solution must involve the restoration of prayer to the public schools of America, if a person resists the TEMPTATION to only look out for himself, but would devote a certain amount of his time and energy to promoting the solution, to encourage American to return to the path of reliance upon God for every good and perfect thing, that would give that person clearly, an added level of protection during the trying times ahead.

    Propoganda–you leave out so much stuff in your articles you cite. You fail to mention in the biker gang the he ran over a biker and paralyzed him. Don’t be like hitler in your articles…….

    Did you happen to notice that nearly all of the cited references of animalistic behavior occurred in the Northeast corridor. Too bad we can’t rename it Crapistan and let Canada anex it as a new province.

    I find it interesting that from your previous article you stated the following:

    “We are simply not the same country that we used to be. Americans are
    proud, selfish, greedy, arrogant, ungrateful, treacherous and completely
    addicted to entertainment and pleasure. Our country is literally
    falling apart all around us, but most Americans are so plugged into
    entertainment that they can’t even be bothered to notice what is
    happening.”

    …because that sounds lock and step with what the WORD OF GOD says:

    Rom 1:28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;

    Rom 1:29 Being filled with all
    unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness;
    full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,

    Rom 1:30 Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,

    Rom 1:31 Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:

    Seems that the U.S. has embraced wickedness. Proof of which JFK was killed 50 years ago this year and not a word was mentioned about it until recently. Because they have to. So who was able to keep the nation in amnesia for 50 years the conspirators who took over the country with the result of the murder and cover-up!

    So no wonder why we find ourselves in the spiritual decay of today.

    Obama needs to die! HE sucks the government sucks and this country is getting really depressing on how evil people are these days….I wish things could all be good for once especially since the government is basically doing the holocaust behind our backs. this country is built on secrets yet I still love it here :)

  • slz

    I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (Mormon as we are often called). The Book of Mormon (yes we study the KJ version of the Bible too) reads in Helaman 12: And we may see that the very time when He (the Lord) doth prosper his people,…doing all things for the welfare and happiness of his people; yea then is the time that they do harden their hearts and do forget the Lord their God, and do trample under their feet the Holy One.. He is the one who allows us prosperity. He is the one who deserves our thanks.
    Unless, and until, we repent as a people and return to a love for our God…and teach the same to our children…we will march steadily down this dreadful road.
    Happy Thanksgiving all.

    You’re report is as biased and manipulative as one from the Government. You clearly did no research into all of the examples you did, or you just used only the bits that supported your point. You are a good example of social decay. Learn a little self control why do you.

    Humanity is pretty savage and messed up on its own, independent of moral training or not. I completely disagree with everyone who keeps citing the decline of Christianity as the reason for America’s problems. That notiondemonizes seculars and ignores the fact that money was a much more driving factor than gods in the founding of the country. The first amendment from the very beginning established a secular government. God wasn’t even mentioned in the pledge or on money until the 1950s. It’s ridiculous to me because Christianity itself is just a mechanism among many created and used by social elites to control people. The life of Jesus exactly mirrors the life of Horus, the ancient Egyptian sun god, in the Book of the Dead which was around for at least a thousand years before Christianity. Rome is alluded to in the Old Testament but was never explicitly mentioned, then all of a sudden in the New Testament it is a huge deal, and coincidentally much of that new testament parallels Roman astrological myths. I’m getting way off topic, though.

    Our country isn’t on a moral decline. We have much more immediate media coverage than ever before, so we hear about these types of incidences more than ever before, but that doesn’t mean they occur any more often than ever before. We are on a huge decline in intelligence, education, and on a huge incline of apathy and complacency. Corporatism is completely to blame.

    Corporate interests own and control the mainstream media, arms manufacturing, food production, the fiat money banking system, and by extension the US government. The rich corporate elites care nothing about the welfare of anyone but themselves and their own families. Once it all collapses, they’ll be long gone with anything of real intrinsic value. They use mainstream media to distract and propagandize and brainwash, then take advantage of mass ignorance to systematically steal from all of us and demonize or kill or imprison anyone who dissents too loudly.

    The school systems don’t educate, they condition kids to compete with everyone and just obey. This causes anxiety and stress; high school drop out rates have skyrocketed. Kids no longer want to learn because “education” is now about regurgitating information to pass a test. Same with college, and corporate professions that require degrees. Who wants to be in debt and have to work 40+ hours a week just to get by? Crime is increasing, people are confused and desperate. Main steam media certainty is making things worse; terrible music(break ups, drugs, money, demeaning to women) News (perpetuating government propaganda, and showing deaths/murder/rape as though that is all that ever happens). Forget religion, religion is a tool of government to control the people. Doubt me? Do some research about Constantine and the Roman empire. Teach kids (and adults) about outside/nature, get them engaged with the real world, local parks and creeks clean up. Education is key, but genuine learning is discouraged; cookie cutter people to work for corporations.We need to get educated (not mainstream) and become responsible for our lives and local communities… Eventually we need to become a true democracy, and not abdicate our power to a few hundred politicians(who set their own agenda or the agenda of their largest campaign contributors). I have 3min video on YouTube highlighting the merits of Direct Democracy.

    lol what a joke. if you cherry-picked the 12 worst news stories from 1930, you would see stories that are utterly more disturbing than the ones above. See the Valentine’s Day Massacre, OPEN political affiliation with mobsters, the trial of Gordon Stewart Northcott, brothels operating in open daylight, abortions with clothes hangers; the list goes on and on. To claim that people are more immoral now than they were in the 1920s is a joke.

    If the lower and middle class would struggle more with a depression now than they did in the 1930s, the sole reason is that most people in the 1930s were already accustomed to a life of doom, desperation, and despair. If such a life is what is necessary to prepare for a great depression we aren’t sure is coming, I think I’ll pass.

    Keep the pressure on your reps in congress. Giving 11 – 30 million (nobody knows for sure) criminal lawbreakers legalization pure insanity. Plus, they could sponsor their relatives; that would bring the total up to about 50 million aliens in our midst. Of course, these new citizens will vote for the vile democrats and their socialist giveaways. Most of them will be unskilled, uneducated, low IQ etc. Stop this outrageous bill now. Don’t sit on the sidelines.You are not wasting your time. The American people don’t want this bill. You have to do all you can do to stem the third world assault:
    - Contact your 2 US Senators and rep in congress.
    - after biz hours, leave a message on your DC rep’s voicemail. All US Senators have multiple offices so it would be a good idea to hit all of the. Remember, be civil and don’t threaten
    - go to NUMBERSUSA then go to the take action button. You will be able to send faxes to your 2 US Senators and congressional for free. (I also gave a $50 donation).
    - use Business Reply envelopes to state your opposition to America’s insane immigration policies and the proposed amnesty. Don’t give the parties any money.
    - join an immigration group like FAIR. Strength thru numbers!
    - go to the RNC & DNC sites to email them.
    - Use the media: call a talk radio program; write a letter to your local paper. If the media outlet is liberal, then talk about economic impact of massive third world immigration.
    - text everybody in your cell phone queue now.
    IF YOU DO OR SAY NOTHING, YOU ARE PART OF THE PROBLEM….

    What do you expect, when the two police officers who beat that homeless man to death in Fullerton got off scot-free? Why are you bitching about youth crimes when they CLEARLY are taking their lead from the authorities? Police shoot family dogs dead in this country more often than they hit the local doughnut shop – and THEY GET AWAY WITH IT! Want to kill someone just for fun? Get yourself a badge and the world is your target practice.

    The rot started at the top; you did NOTHING to stop it because you, like most Americans, worship power and ‘authority.’ Well, you have the society you wanted now – deal with it!

    “Just last weekend, there were “mini-riots” in several U.S. states when “technical issues” caused the food stamp system to go haywire for a few hours.” Ditto in several places in West Virginia over water after the chemical spill there.

  • Aaaron

    While not good listing of actions. these in no way are indications that the country is on a slide to fall. There are a lot of good gun carry laws passed that will allow self protection from thugs, plus are taking actions to prepare for thugs and unruly folks.

    I do believe lines should be drawn…America is getting to lenient in all the wrong areas…We the people should be able to trust one another and feel safe. Its very sad.
