20 Signs That We Are Witnessing The Complete Collapse Of Common Sense In America

What do you do when an entire nation begins to lose the capacity to think rationally?  Many Americans spend a great deal of time criticizing the government, and there is certainly a lot to complain about, but it is not just the government that is the problem.  All over America, people appear to be going insane.  It is almost as if we have been cursed with stupidity.  Sadly, this applies from the very top of our society all the way down to the very bottom.  A lot of us find ourselves asking the following question much more frequently these days: “How could they be so stupid?”  Unfortunately, we are witnessing a complete collapse of common sense all over America.  Many people seem to believe that if we could just get Obama out of office or if we could just reform our economic system that our problems as a nation would be solved, but that is simply not true.  Our problems run much deeper than that.  The societal decay that is plaguing our country is very deep and it is everywhere.  We are a nation that is full of people that do not care about others and that just want to do what is right in their own eyes.  We hold ourselves out to the rest of the world as “the greatest nation on earth” and an example that everyone else should follow, and yet our own house is rotting all around us.  The words “crazy”, “insane” and “deluded” are not nearly strong enough to describe our frame of mind as a country.  America has become a sad, delusional old man that can’t even think straight anymore.  The evidence of our mental illness is everywhere.

The following are 20 signs that we are witnessing the complete collapse of common sense in America….

#1 According to Wired Magazine, FBI agents have been taught that they can “bend or suspend the law” as they pursue criminals and terrorists.  But when they break the law they become criminals themselves.

#2 A TSA manager (not just an agent) at Dulles International Airport was recently discovered to be running a prostitution ring out of a local hotel room.  TSA agents have been charged with crime after crime after crime and yet we continue to allow them to be in charge of airport security.

#3 CBS News is reporting that approximately 200 pieces of luggage a day are being stolen by employees at John F. Kennedy International Airport and authorities still have not been able to stop it.

#4 Visitors to the United States must now pay $14 to complete an online form that asks them a series of really bizarre questions.  For example, one of the questions asks visitors to the U.S. if they ever “collaborated with the Nazis”.

#5 The U.S. military is buying huge amounts of electronic parts from China (mistake number one) and a government investigation has uncovered the fact that a large percentage of these parts are counterfeit.  Yet the U.S.military continues to buy huge amounts of electronic parts from China (mistake number two).

#6 A high school senior in Indiana was recently expelled from school for cussing on Twitter.

#7 Police in Chicago apparently believe that our “First Amendment rights can be terminated” at their discretion.

#8 Americans are becoming very cruel to one another.  This is especially true when it comes to the weak and the elderly.  For example, two “caregivers” down in Georgia were recently charged with waterboarding an 89-year-old woman that had been entrusted to their care….

Police charge two caregivers at a Jonesboro facility with waterboarding an 89-year-old woman.

Clayton County police said Jermeller Steed and Cicely Reed held down Anna Foley after an argument that started over ice cream.

#9 An increasing number of American families are taking out student loans in order to pay for their children’s kindergarten tuition.

#10 One town in Massachusetts plans to distribute free condoms to children as young as 12 years of age.

#11 Children in America are exposed to enormous amounts of sexual material on television these days, but we are always so shocked when they try to act out on it.  The following is one very disturbing example that happened recently in Ohio….

Authorities in southwest Ohio have charged a 13-year-old boy with raping a 5-year-old girl at a McDonald’s play area.

The Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office said Monday that the alleged assault occurred Oct. 29 at a McDonald’s in the Cincinnati suburb of Anderson Township. Sheriff’s spokesman Steve Barnett says the girl’s grandmother was nearby in the restaurant at the time.

#12 The following is another example from Indiana of how our sexualized society is affecting our young children….

Fishers police said an 8-year-old girl and a 13-year-old boy were caught in a sexual act on a school bus.

The girl’s parents are now trying to determine if the February incident was a rape or molestation.

In a statement, police said a bus aid caught the girl and the boy “trying to have intercourse,” and that the “bus aid immediately separated the juveniles and informed the bus driver.”

#13 According to Natural News, the Michigan state government intends to raid private farms and kill pigs that have “the wrong hair color” even though some of these farmers have been raising these pigs for decades.

#14 An executive order recently updated by the Obama administration would give the federal government complete control over all food, all energy, all health resources, all transportation resources and “all other materials, services, and facilities” at the discretion of Barack Obama.  The wording of the executive order has been changed so that this can now be done even in “non-emergency” situations.  Very few Americans seem concerned by this.

#15 These days many Americans are very hesitant to get involved with helping out anyone else.  For example, an 86-year-old World War II veteran living near Detroit was recently brutally carjacked in broad daylight at a gas station.  He could not walk after the attack because his leg was shattered so he began to crawl across the concrete pavement to get help.  Sadly, many people walked past and drove past as if he was not even there.

#16 At one airport in Hawaii, TSA agents recently required one new mother to go to a public restroom and fill up the empty baby bottles she was carrying with her own breast milk before they would allow her to get on to her flight.  The following is how one local news station described the incident….

She claims agents told her she couldn’t take the pump on the plane because the bottles in her carry-on were empty.

“I asked him if there was a private place I could pump and he said no, you can go in the women’s bathroom. I had to stand in front of the mirrors and the sinks and pump my breast in front of every tourist that walked into that bathroom. I was embarrassed and humiliated and then angry that I was treated this way.

When the bottles were full, she was allowed back on the plane.

#17 Massive brawls have been erupting at Chuck E. Cheese restaurants all over the nation.  Police responded to violence at one particular Chuck E. Cheese restaurant in Pennsylvania 17 times in just one recent 18 month time period.

#18 Thieves in New Jersey have become so desperate for scrap metal that they have started breaking into churches and ripping the copper piping right out of the walls.

#19 Tide detergent has become an alternative form of currency on the streets of America and there has been an epidemic of Tide thefts all over the nation.  The following is from a recent article in The Daily….

Theft of Tide detergent has become so rampant that authorities from New York to Oregon are keeping tabs on the soap spree, and some cities are setting up special task forces to stop it. And retailers like CVS are taking special security precautions to lock down the liquid. 

One Tide taker in West St. Paul, Minn., made off with $25,000 in the product over 15 months before he was busted last year.

“That was unique that he stole so much soap,” said West St. Paul Police Chief Bud Shaver. “The name brand is [all] Tide. Amazing, huh?”

Tide has become a form of currency on the streets. The retail price is steadily high — roughly $10 to $20 a bottle — and it’s a staple in households across socioeconomic classes.

#20 New federal rules will severely restrict the kind of work that children can do on farms in America.  Kids will be banned from doing many of the most basic kinds of farm chores under the new regulations.  Perhaps the children can just sit inside and watch television while the adults do all the work.

As mentioned earlier, what America is experiencing is not just an economic collapse.  The truth is that our entire society is collapsing.

For many years our great prosperity masked much of our decline, but now our great economic strength is rapidly fading and it is becoming very difficult to deny how far we have fallen as a nation.

You can find more examples of how American society is decaying right here and right here.  Anyone with half a brain can see what is happening to the United States.  It really is sad, because America was once a truly great nation.

So is there any hope of a recovery?

Not if we keep going down the same path.

In the end, the choice is up to you America.

    All I can say is turn off the TV! I dare any adult to sit and watch a days worth of The Disney channel or Nickelodeon programs and they will be bombarded with images and messages of violence, disrespect to parents, and sexual situations. Sometimes it is subtle , many times it is not– and people sit their children infront of these programming tools and wonder where their children’s odd behavior comes from.

    I liked the line in your comment about people doing what seems best in their own eyes. That’s the same thing that was said about the Israelites during the time of the Judges. The other theme from Judges is this: God gives the people the rulers they deserve.
    Could our lack of social skills and common sense have anything to do with the collapse of moral decency? drug addiction? dumming down our educational skills? etc…..

  • Mr Carpenter

    I just read the book The Harbinger and also viewed the video Isaiah 9:10, which is done by the same gentleman, and it goes a long way towards explaining and making sense of what has happened in the past 11 years (and which has been building up since about 1860, in my humble opinion). The rot really ramped up big-time in about 1962 or so, and started to gather exponential ‘steam’ towards a national destruction.

    The fact that the Department of Homeland Security just purchased 450,000,000 rounds of 40 caliber pistol ammo which is not legal for use against enemies in war (but through a loophole, can apparently be used against US citizens) and that the DHS has also orderd 175,000,000 rounds of civilian versions of M16 rounds (also with the ability to expand when hitting human flesh – thus not legal for use in wars) speaks volumes, especially when played against the fact – yes fact, that from all appearances, the powers that be are fomenting race-war within our country (very probably as an excuse to institute martial law and then finalize the dictatorship). And yes, I’m fully aware that I’m being watched and so we all are – as Michael says – we may as well stand proud. I’m a Lutheran Pastor belonging to a church association of free local congregations and I’ve been watching this happen since 1980. The part which really gets me is that virtually nobody is listening to those of us who’ve been warning and talking and cajoling others to give a care. So I guess we all will get what we deserve, won’t we?!

    But it may well not end well for the powers that be. Perhaps they would be wise to recall that not everyone is a peace-loving Christian Pastor who will not murder (however I will defend myself if threatened bodily).

    I read recently that Amerian civilians have a trillion rounds of personal ammo – and read also that upon seeing the news about the DHS ammo, a commentator elsewhere essentially wrote to the DHS people – “quit. you’re on the wrong side.”

    I keep picturing Mussolini and his henchmen in my mind. Maybe the powers that be should stand down if they value their lives?

    Don’t bash sports & all its fans. I teach economics, am a civil rights activist, a Ron Paul fan, & try to educate people about our fiat money ponzi economy. When I morph from sports to real talk after getting to know people, they are more receptive. Sports is fine as a diversion as long as 1 doesn’t find it more important than 1’s loss of rights & it doesn’t crowd out 1’s responsibilities as a citizen (not a consumer). It’s a measure of priorities.

      When I win the Mega Millions jackpot tonight, I might consider buying the New York Mutts, the Chicago Crabs, or the Houston A..holes. Or maybe my very own Arizona Diamondbacks. The L.A. Dodgers would be a bit out of my budget though. Magic Johnson and some friends bought the Dodgers for $2.1 billion the other day.

      • mondobeyondo

        fyi… Game Seven, 2001 World Series. Bank One Ballpark, Phoenix, Arizona. Yankees vs. Diamondbacks.

        I was there. Section 132, row 8, seat 6. (Someday, I will post the video I took on YouTube). It was unforgettable. Luis Gonzalez’s bloop single to the infield brought the house down.

        It wasn’t the Olympics or World Cup of soccer. But man… what an experience.

        Okay, let’s get back on topic!…..

            Yes, I was.

            Curt Schilling was very impressive, but to be honest, the first 5 innings were rather boring. Randy Johnson came out of the bullpen in the bottom of the 7th. After that, well… every baseball fan knows the rest.

    Sadly most Americans just don’t care about government all they care about is the next American Idol and what Snookys up to. Its really sad how stupid most American have become. What’s it going to take for people to wake up! I see a lot of young people reading and researching political issues online and have a better understanding of the world more than most adults do.

    They all attribute this to Ron Paul

    • Sawyer

      Say it was Wiken (Norse) and YOU didn’t want your children exposed to someone of a different religion who is teaching your children different doctrines of your religion? No. The importance of separation of Church and State was so that an oligarchy would not form, as it did in England, France, Germany, and most everywhere else. Even if us Christians are right (which I believe), we SHOULD NOT force other people of other religions to listen to it. Freedom of religion.

    Who is the “we” this article mentions? The fact is that the old America in which “we” would not do this or that is gone. America is now a very multi-cultural country with some segments engaging in things other segments rarely engage in. Multi-ethnic societies have far more problems than mono-ethnic societies and the more multi-ethnic America becomes, the more problems it has.

  • Michele

    Dear Father in Heaven, Thank you for another day of sunshine & warm weather and a happy marriage, a cute loving dog of 14 years, my 16 & 18 year old healthy sons, a warm safe dry place to live, with food on the table, and a job you gave to my husband! Thank you for the ability to to pray and see the sun come up and go down every day! Thank you for the directions you wrote on what to do in case it got bad in life like it is in America and every other country who have sinned against you and the rules you wrote for us to live by and to follow to prosper! Thank you for knowing this would all happen in advance and for sending Jesus Christ around 2000 years ago to die for me and anyone else who is willing to know who you are, what your about and why they are here at this point in time! Thank you for allowing me to know of the good ole days and the brand new upcoming perfect days you have prepared for me & my household in advance when the world came to this point! Forgive me God, for not doing more and for not always being on the winning team, thank you for always coming after me, as if I were the only sheep in the world and for loving me far more than I deserve! You alone are my refuge & strength and in you alone I put my trust! Forgive me of my sins and please forgive the ignorance of the ones who were blinded by self, greed, lust and pride! Forgive me of the things I didn’t do right and change me continuously to be far better than I was the day before! I love you God and I love the fact that I have you, not as a back up plan, but as the plan you made for me long before I was born and the faith to call out your name and praise you in the good times and save me in the bad! Bless every dear reader and visitor of this site and for the man they call Michael for telling the truth even if it wasn’t what we want to hear!

I will love all others even when I am hated by most and I will wait faithfully and eagerly for the day this life is over and pray I have passed the test to go happily into the next one! I look forward to the future because it is you who holds my life and the life of every individual in the palm of your nail scarred hands! Thank you for the chance to try to be a person who made a difference if only in the life of just one! Please bless and take care of each individual here according to your will alone, I plea the blood of Jesus Christ over each of them and I ask that you command your Holy angels to watch over & protect them that you have made yourself real to! Thank you Lord for giving me everything I need to live and to have a life where no government owns me or my life because all I have comes from you, not from a system or from another, you build up and you tear down, and whichever you choose for me I humbly accept and I thank you from the bottom of my heart for it all! Please have a great weekend God and remember me and all those here as I leave them in your hands where they are safe! I thank you for each of them and the comments they have written in this place of time, where they will be remembered by me and by you! Please hurry Lord, without you, there is no hope! I will always love you & always serve you, and whatever you require of me, even if it is death, your love & provisions throughout my life are worth it! You are awesome God and I am humble and thankful for it all! Praise you & bless you and even so Come, Lord Jesus! Amen!

        Not everyone is unaware. I’m on the road in Spokan Wa. Walmart is having a sale on Emergency prep Food. When it gets to Walmart’s notice it’s no longer small. There is hope, For a simple reason: Good people will help other good people even if they don’t always agree, per example I think the whole idea of God is hogwash but I don’t mind helping people who believe (as long as they don’t try to rain on my picnic), bad people don’t help anyone

        You are so very welcome Michael! Have a wonderful week, and Praise the Lord for He is good, and even the devil has to have permission before he can do his evil work. Thanks for the article! I love your site!

      Michele,
      Thank you, that was beautiful. I teach that “a grateful heart is a thing of beauty”, and you indeed have a grateful and generous heart. May God increase your blessings and ferry you and your family through the oncoming chaos.

      Dear Michelle,

      A year ago you commented on a post written by Michael at the blog “The Economic Collapse.” Your ocmment was rather a wonderful prayer that you wrote.

      I want you to know that it was used by God to speak to me about many things. I was deeply moved and felt it was God’s voice to me.

      You had no way of knowing that one year later a woman in Missouri at 9:30PM on a Sat. evening would read this prayer that spoke to her heart bringing encouragement and the assurance of the love of God in my particular situation.

      In your prayer you thanked God for your life even if it meant a difference in only one person’s life. You had no way of knowing that at this time and at this moment you made a difference in mine!

      God will bless you for your great outpouring of love and your affirmations of faith in our Lord’s eternal love for each one of us.

      Lord, bless Michelle wherever she is and bless her husband, her two sons and her dog. Give her a special knowledge that you are pleased by her great love and faith. And bless all the days she has here on earth and give her a spiritual hug from me! I know when she stands before you she will hear you say “well done, thou good and faithful servant.”

      God bless you and keep you and make his face to shine upon you both now and forever more!

  • Andrew Bulles

    So, I’ll put this one to the crowd about a member of my family. He’s is divorced since 2009. He has been living on about $36,000 per year in California since that time and has managed to save roughly $20,000 in cash and has some silver and gold. His divorce happened just after he lost his job in 2008 and could find another like position – he was out of work for 10 months… so he settled for a job in retail managing a store. Since that time, he has not filed income taxes as he wanted to save money to hopefully buy a run down desert foreclosure property. He wants to pay ALL cash for the property… around $30,000. Then he says he will start to save money to hopefully one day file his taxes and pay off the taxes he will owe? What do you think his chances are of being able to securely keep the property he buys while trying to fix things with the Federal Government’s theft department? And, should he even file the taxes? I say, buy Silver and never buy property in his name and just disappear… I told him to wait until his oldest child is 18 and buy the house in her name. His prospects are not good as his life long career was as a construction foreman, plan checker and estimator for a national housing construction company. He doesn’t think his “old” job will ever come back and is, at least, realistic in that sense. Anyway, there’s more to his story but I think any answer you good posters give could be helpful.

    Gollee, quite a whinefest we got going here, folks. I’m gonna play the advocate and tell y’all to get off your apathetic gluteals and be the change you want to see happen, and I don’t mean BO change, either. We have all done a pretty good job at identifying the problem, now let’s start focusing on the SOLUTIONS. If the ship’s going down, we’re gonna go down swimming. I suspect that you all consider yourselves disenfranchised victims who didn’t deserve any of this, but I think we all have to grab the wheel and start turning the ship. I am not helpless. I will stand and carry those who can’t stand for themselves. Why? Because I remember where I came from. Engage and align yourselves with people of vision: lead, follow, or get out of the way.

    When I was a kid in the fifties, I helped an elderly person cross the street, certainly a WWII veteran and possibly a Nazi.Does this exclude me from travel to the US?

    Thats what happens when our nation under God Leaves God out of the equasion! A nation full of insane heathens! Repent Americans! or face judgment!

    • Alexander Peterson

      I agree with you that God is judging our nation, however, don’t discredit yourself by using misspelled words because this is something an uneducated person would do.

  • Adam

    One can like sport and be educated I read in the comments. Well, the educated are not always the wise. The land is being plundered by very educated people. The word Sport means ‘to mock’. It is playing games. Games are for children. Anyone who can get a thrill over how a ball is tossed, kicked or landed has a very low sense of culture. It’s just a ball and the ones tossing and kicking it are just a load of sweaty blokes. Big deal.

    If exercise is what one is after it can be gotten by doing things, walking, cycling, swimming, hiking, but it’s still only just a form of movement, not something to place onto a cultural pedestal. It is a base instinct and easily out-toiled by the establishment, and becomes a downwards spiral for those loving sport. Those promoting it make the money and take the power during the age in which they fleece the Sakson people, the Romans called it the age of “Bread (dole / welfare) and Circuses (sport / endless entertainment)”.

    Sport was not done in the days when our nations grew. Work was exercise. The British Empire brought mass sport into society via the idle rich which was used as an excuse to bind nations together. It is a political tool, so well manipulated that sport lovers will never see the fact that what they love is fake and created to keep them enslaved from truth.

    People who wet themselves over a ball caught ‘well’ have little grip of what is real. When they riot over one’s team, cheer as if a nation has just won a war, then they are far gone. Sport players are not stars. A star is someone who has brilliance to shine wisdom onto others. Sport players do not have that trait. Nor do pop singers or Hollywood ‘players’, more wisdom can be found in the rear end of a swine than from those the establishment calls stars. The more of their stars we get, the sillier the land becomes. If anything, their stars are national black holes.

    • Sawyer

      I agree with the latter, and some of the former. Mass sport is stupid and we shouldn’t pay them millions of dollars to kick/throw/catch a ball. It’s idiotic.

      “It is playing games. Games are for children.” “Sport was not done in the days when our nation grew.” “Work was exercise.”

      Games have been used since the beginning of time. Ancient civilizations played them and we never stopped. The point was not to exercise, that was just a by product. The point was enjoyment, and enjoyment is universal. Why should only the young be allowed to enjoy something? And while America was growing, what was baseball? Or American football? Or tennis? Or golf? Or countless other “games” for “children”?

      But for the most part, I agree. People freaking out about football are idiots.

    Yeah when you put all the crap in one big list yeah it makes us all look like assholes. Incidents like this have ALWAYS HAPPENED, only now with internet you hear about every single one. While listing 20 negative items you forget how many people live in the USA. 311,000,000. 20 out of 311,000,000 ain’t to shabby. You get the point. Maybe instead if bitching on the internet try being a good person as often as possible and now that you are doing your part.

  • James Polk

    You my say that they have difficult problems and the people complaining does not provide solutions, but the people can see the solutions, in fact they are very simple, and when our comments are usually ignored, and ideas brushed aside, and rights intentionally violated, even after it is pointed out, it becomes clear to the people that our ellected officials are NOT working in our best interest, but are instead, serving another agenda.

    The rise of hate radio feeding and encouraging people to believe their hate is valid and to take it public has spread to TV. TV itself has shifted into Reality TV showing stupidity as an asset. Movies have shifted from cowboys fighting with guns on their sides but using fist, to extreme violence for minor infractions. After WWII our government held trails and convicted people for the torture of waterboarding and now our government is willing to waterboard anyone it calls a terrorist. Music went from peace, love and happiness of the 60s to Hip Hop Hate Rap of the late 90s. Martha Stewart had no problems selling securities she knew were worthless to unsuspecting people and is still popular. Bernie Maddoff successfully testified to congress that the SEC was unnecessary cause the stock exchange was ‘self regulating’. Oliver North sold weapons to IRAN, an enemy of the US, and is still considered a hero. News shows no longer even attempt to present unbiased information. Bush #1 called Ken Lay the ambassador of deregulation for his efforts to deregulate corporate America.

    I think this breakdown in society started in the 80s with a government funding the training of terrorist for central America and making fun of poor and disenfranchised in our society.

    You state “Today, many elderly Americans have to make a choice between buying food, heating their homes or buying medicine that they need. They simply do not have enough money to do all of them.”

    Seems to me that is the crisis facing the nation, not just baby boomers.

    Righteousness exalts a nation,
    But sin is a reproach to any people.
