25 Signs The Collapse Of America Is Speeding Up As Society Rots From The Inside Out

The problems that America is experiencing right now are not just confined to the field of economics.  The truth is that there are signs of deep decay wherever we look, and without question the United States is rotting from the inside out in thousands of different ways.  For a long time our debt-fueled prosperity has masked much of the social decay that has been festering underneath the surface, but now it is becoming increasingly apparent that the thin veneer of civilization that we all take for granted is beginning to disappear.  For many Americans, it is easy to point a finger at a particular group or political party and blame them for all of our problems, but the reality of the matter is that our societal decay cuts across all income levels, all political affiliations and all regions of the country.  We are being destroyed from within, and this decay can be seen on the streets of the most dilapidated sections of major U.S. cities and it can also be seen in the halls of power in Washington D.C. and on Wall Street.  It is undeniable that something has fundamentally changed.  The American people do not seem to possess the same level of character that they once had.  So where do we go from here?

The following are 25 signs the collapse of America is speeding up as society rots from the inside out….

1. Homicides in Chicago are 38 percent ahead of where they were last year at this time.  In fact, the Daily says that “homicide victims in the Windy City outnumber U.S. troops killed in Afghanistan this year”.  Things are taking a turn for the worse in other major U.S. cities as well.  Just check out the carnage that happened in New York City this past Friday night….

Across barely eight hours, at least seven New Yorkers were murdered and another 21 shot, stabbed or slashed across the city — with only three suspects arrested before the blood stopped flowing

2. Speaking of New York City, a teacher there recently posted the following on her Facebook page….

“Crupi and I survived a shootout today…Thank God we are ok…To all the wanna be gangstas of Staten Island (who say they are from Brooklyn but really aren’t), be grateful you have what you have and stop trying to live a lifestyle you will never understand.”

About a week later, her husband discovered her dead in a pool of her own blood in their apartment.  She had been stabbed numerous times.

3. Reporter James Carlini recently discussed the growing problems that roaming gangs of youths are causing along the Magnificent Mile in Chicago….

There is an increase in problems at night with small gangs roaming around looking for the right prey.

Don’t bother looking for any cops, they are far and few between. Little perfume-size pepper spray canisters may be in vogue, politically correct and fit in a purse, but they are not practical. Forget about pepper spray, you’d need a gallon jug of it to stop five or six assailants.

Do you now need a .357 Magnum to walk down the Mag Mile? Maybe a compact .45 or a high-capacity 9MM “just to be on the safe side” is more what you should have. Even the police are telling each other that they better “carry large caliber” off-duty and not be caught unarmed.

4. Down in Florida, a lifeguard named Tomas Lopez was recently fired for attempting to saving a man that was drowning “outside his patrol zone“….

Lopez, 21, was hired by Jeff Ellis Management to monitor a portion of a public beach in Hallandale Beach, Fla. The company allegedly gave Lopez strict instructions to stay inside his patrol zone, ABC News reports.

But when Lopez spotted a man in distress outside his patrol zone Monday afternoon, he ignored those instructions and leapt into action.

By the time lifeguard Tomas Lopez got to the man, other bystanders had already pulled him to shore, the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports. Lopez stayed with the man until paramedics arrived.

That valiant act was Lopez’s last as a lifeguard, as his employer fired him for straying 1,500 feet outside his patrol zone.

5. Authorities say that thieves are stealing identities and filing fraudulent tax returns on a scale never seen before….

With nothing more than ledgers of stolen identity information — Social Security numbers and their corresponding names and birth dates — criminals have electronically filed thousands of false tax returns with made-up incomes and withholding information and have received hundreds of millions of dollars in wrongful refunds, law enforcement officials say.

The criminals, some of them former drug dealers, outwit the Internal Revenue Service by filing a return before the legitimate taxpayer files. Then the criminals receive the refund, sometimes by check but more often though a convenient but hard-to-trace prepaid debit card.

In all, the IRS says that there were approximately 940,000 fake tax returns filed for 2010.

6. U.S. Secret Service agents are supposed to be “the best of the best” and are charged with guarding our top public officials.  But even they have exhibited a consistent pattern of moral decay for many years according to one recent report….

Secret Service agents and officers have been accused of leaking sensitive information, publishing porn, sexual assaults, illegal wiretaps, embezzlement and drunkenness on duty, according to a 229-page log released yesterday.

After a prostitution scandal in April, when agents consorted with hookers while preparing for President Obama’s arrival in Colombia, Service Director Mark Sullivan apologized. But he said it was an isolated case, not a “systemic issue.”

However, the log, which the Service Service released yesterday after news organizations requested it under the Freedom of Information Act, shows a pattern of misdeeds dating back to 2003.

7. These days thieves will steal just about anything that is not bolted down and that they can sell for money.  For example, three thieves recently broke into a Chicago beauty supply store and took off with hair extensions that were worth a total of $230,000.

8. Up in Minnesota, thieves are stealing Bronze Stars from hundreds of military graves, and down in Fresno, California thieves have actually been stealing metal crosses from churches.

9. According to one shocking new report, one out of every 10 Wall Street employees is a “clinical psychopath”.  That is a rate about 10 times higher than the general population.

10. Even many police are going crazy these days.  Over in Seattle, police zapped a pregnant woman with a taser three times just because she refused to sign a ticket.

11. Down in California, one man recently sliced off the ear of another man with a knife over an unpaid debt.

12. These days we are seeing senseless crimes being committed even in small towns in the heartland of America.  Just check out what happened in Helena, Montana about a week ago….

Helena Police are working to identify two young men after what they call a random act of violence over the weekend. Helena Police found a 40-year-old homeless man badly beaten in an alley behind the Gold Bar around 2 a.m. Sunday morning.

Helena Police Detective Sergeant Richard Drysdale states,” The video shows two white males surrounding the victim as he was entering the walkway yelling at him and then knocking him down to the ground where they beat and kicked him until he was unconscious.”

You can find a video report about this incident right here.

13. One town in Connecticut was forced to shut down a beautiful new public fountain because too many people were using it as a toilet.

14. According to one very shocking study, the percentage of U.S. households that contain a married couple with children has fallen from 44.3% in 1960 to 20.2% today.

15. A huge brawl between parents erupted during one recent preschool graduation ceremony down in the Los Angeles area.

16. We continue to see “mob robberies” at retail establishments all over the nation.  During one recent mob robbery in Detroit, thugs beat the living daylights out of one very unfortunate stock clerk.

17. Speaking of Detroit, nobody is immune to the spreading violence in that city.  For example, just check out what happened recently to a 22-year-old pregnant woman….

A 22-year-old pregnant woman survived after being bound, driven to Detroit, set on fire and shot early Saturday morning.

The woman, who was nine-months pregnant, had returned from a movie with her boyfriend and dropped him off at his house in Warren when she was approached from behind, Warren police Sgt. Dave Geffert said.

The woman’s hands, feet and eyes were bound with duct tape. She was then forced into her car and driven to an unknown place in Detroit where she was doused with lighter fluid, set on fire and shot once in the upper back, he said.

18. Many families returned to their homes following the recent wildfires in Colorado only to discover that their houses had been robbed and looted.

19. One 33-year-old art teacher in Arizona was not satisfied with only having sex with one of her students.  In fact, police have charged her with having sex with four of her male students.

20. Down in Florida, one man has actually been charged with biting the lips off of a kitten.

21. Over in Waco, Texas a 22-year-old man recently strangled and ate the family dog while he was high on drugs.

22. Of course most of us have heard of the recent outbreak of “zombie attacks” around the nation where criminals have actually been biting their victims and chewing their flesh.  The following is another example of this phenomenon from a recent case in central New York….

A synthetic drug known as “bath salts” is blamed for some bizarre behavior in central New York.

The Utica Observer-Dispatch reports that police officers were called to Stanley’s Bar Saturday night to check out a woman described as emotionally disturbed. When an officer approached her, she lunged at him and tried to bite his face. Police say she screamed that she wanted to “kill someone and eat them.”

The woman was taken to St. Luke’s Memorial Hospital for a mental health evaluation.

Another very disturbing “zombie incident” took place down in Georgia recently….

Karl Laventure, 21, was believed to be high on bath salts when he tried to attack the officers in Lilburn, Georgia.

And after they had managed to subdue him he began threatening to eat them.

Laventure appeared out of some woods and was seen running naked around a golf range near Atlanta, swinging a club around his head and screaming.

Police said that it took several officers to subdue the man who had ‘super-human strength’.

23. All over America, people seem to be losing their minds.  Just check out what one man in New Jersey did recently when police arrived at his home….

Officers got a call that morning when a witness said Carter was threatening to harm himself with a knife. Two cops responded, kicked in the door and found Carter in the corner, the station reported.

Carter allegedly ignored officers’ orders to put down the knife, and instead began stabbing himself in the abdomen, neck and legs.

An attempt to pepper spray the bleeding man had no effect, the Associated Press reported.

That’s when Carter — disemboweled but responsive — reportedly threw bits of his skin and intestines at the officers.

24. One woman in the St. Louis area was recently caught cooking meth in her purse inside a Wal-Mart store.

25. Anyone that believes that slavery has been abolished in America does not know what they are talking about.  Every single night sex slaves are being horribly abused all over the United States.  The following is from a recent Daily Mail article….

The FBI has rescued 79 teens held against their will and forced into prostitution from hotels, truck stops and stores during a three-day swoop on sex-trafficking rings across the country.

The sex slaves were aged between 13 and 17, although one said she had been involved in prostitution since she was just 11, authorities said.

During the sting operations across 57 U.S. cities – including Atlanta, Sacramento and Toledo, Ohio – 104 alleged pimps were arrested.

It is estimated that “100,000 children are victims of prostitution and trafficking each year” in the United States.

Are you starting to get the picture?

Sadly, there are dozens and dozens more examples like these.  If you want to see more examples of how the collapse of America is speeding up, check out these articles that I recently published….

70 Reasons To Mourn For America

20 Signs That Society Is Breaking Down And That America Has Been Overrun By Psychos

The frightening thing is that this breakdown of our society is happening at the same time that our economy is completely falling to pieces.

This economic decline that we are experiencing is shredding the middle class and it is plunging millions of Americans into very desperate circumstances.  The following is a brief excerpt from a recent Rolling Stone article….

Every night around nine, Janis Adkins falls asleep in the back of her Toyota Sienna van in a church parking lot at the edge of Santa Barbara, California. On the van’s roof is a black Yakima SpaceBooster, full of previous-life belongings like a snorkel and fins and camping gear. Adkins, who is 56 years old, parks the van at the lot’s remotest corner, aligning its side with a row of dense, shading avocado trees. The trees provide privacy, but they are also useful because she can pick their fallen fruit, and she doesn’t always­ have enough to eat. Despite a continuous, two-year job search, she remains without dependable work. She says she doesn’t need to eat much – if she gets a decent hot meal in the morning, she can get by for the rest of the day on a piece of fruit or bulk-purchased almonds – but food stamps supply only a fraction of her nutritional needs, so foraging opportunities are welcome.

Prior to the Great Recession, Adkins owned and ran a successful plant nursery in Moab, Utah. At its peak, it was grossing $300,000 a year. She had never before been unemployed – she’d worked for 40 years, through three major recessions.

You can read the rest of the article right here.

What would you do if you were in a similar situation?

Sadly, many more Americans will end up just like her.  As I wrote about the other day, the U.S. economy is not going to be able to produce enough jobs for everyone anymore.  In fact, the overall employment picture is going to keep getting worse for working Americans.

Things have gotten so bad that even many very highly educated scientists cannot find jobs in America right now.  Almost everybody is hurting, and we haven’t even gotten to the next wave of the economic collapse yet.

The next time that there is a major spike in the unemployment rate, millions of Americans will lose all hope and will become very desperate.

And desperate people do desperate things.

The rot and decay that we are witnessing right now is just the beginning.

Things are going to get a lot worse.

So let us hope for the best, but let us also prepare for the worst.

    My store has one request, posted in big letters for everyone to see: that people not eat or drink in the store. It is often ignored, and I’ve noticed that customers have been becoming angrier and angrier when asked to comply with it. One customer (in the company of a child) felt compelled to express their satisfaction by grabbing merchandise off the shelf and throwing it to the floor.

      What color were they? Its OK to tell us, OhBahhma’s legacy will be the death of Political correctness so all questions are fair game. like the increasing amount of black on white crime over some minor act.

          Ian Trayvon has made it perfectly clear the mass numbers of black racists in America….even I was shocked by the numbers.

          Just try and get an impartial jury in Sanford….they are scared of anyone black.

          If I were a White Supremest I would be happy how things are going….Maybe Charlie Manson will get his race war before he dies.

          Keep Katrina flooding them Niccas with the most vile nasty rap music..IT WORKED….kept them separate and Unequal, but now the welfare prison shootings are costing America TOO much Money…..so next up Fema camps in the wilderness lets see the survival of the fittest when coyotes vultures and bears attack the camp.

        The media only reports these horrors from one direction.

        There has been a sharp rise in race-related crime. Those who depend solely on the liberal media for their news coverage might be surprised to learn that the majority of these crimes involve black youths attacking whites–often elderly.

        The fatal shooting of Trayvon Martin by George Zimmerman has cast light on how the press operates. When whites attack blacks, the media is quick to report it. But when blacks attack whites, somehow those particular news stories never see the light of day. The most recent Govt Dept of Labor and Statistics shows that violent black on white crime is just short of a 20:1 ratio with dozens of whites murdered daily by blacks and dozens more murdered, assaulted and raped by Hispanics.

        The brutality of some of these attacks against whites has reached stunning levels. Here are some examples from the last few months:

        On February 27, the day after the Martin shooting, two black males in Detroit abducted and killed a white couple. The victims were found bound, shot, and burned beyond recognition in an alley. Police are calling it a random “thrill killing.” If the races were reversed it would be called “a hate crime” and they’d be burning down the inner cities.

        On February 28 in Kansas City, Missouri, two black teens attacked a thirteen-year-old white boy on his front porch as he was returning from school. They poured gasoline on him and set him on fire for no apparent reason, saying, “You get what you deserve, white boy!”

        On March 14, a twenty-year-old black man broke into the home of Bob and Nancy Straight in Tulsa, Oklahoma. He raped the eighty-five-year-old Mrs. Straight and then beat her to death. Then he shot ninety-year-old Mr. Straight in the face with a pellet gun and broke his jaw and ribs. He died several days later.

        On April 1 in Jackson, Mississippi, a thirty-one-year-old black man broke into a house and found a white woman inside. He forced her to lie on the floor with a blanket over her head as he shot her in the back of the head, execution-style.

        On April 15 in Las Vegas, a twenty-two-year-old black man raped a thirty-eight-year-old white woman and her ten-year-old daughter. He then killed them by smashing their skulls with a hammer.

        On May 12, Johnny Aparicio, a soldier at MacDill Air Force Base, was attacked by a group of blacks after his car broke down. As Aparacio was walking for help, a black male ran up and punched him. Two others joined in the attack; a fourth man ran up and kicked Aparicio in the face. The four suspects took Aparicio’s wallet and cell phone. Aparicio received facial injuries.

        On June 8, Elizabeth Hutcheson was stabbed fifty times while working as a pizza delivery driver. The racially motivated murder was planned by Cadedra Cook, eighteen, and an unnamed fifteen-year-old boy. Both are charged with murder.

        These are just a tiny, tiny smattering of the dozens and dozens that happen week after week. I only chose these to demonstrate the brutality and demonic hatred involved in this ************* evil.

      Buzzy – this is very interesting. I’ve seen several examples of tensions running a lot higher and people reacting a lot more erratically.

      We are headed for some serious civil unrest if things continue to slide economically.

      Stay ready friends.

      • Crusader2010

        It’s what the Government is counting on! it’s to declare martial law and arrest people who protest.

  • Cleo

    We ain’t seen nothing yet. Stay vigilant, stay focused, protect yourself and your loved ones first but never fail to help anyone else. Surround yourself with good, decent, like minded individuals like yourself. But in a show down situation with someone trying to do you harm or steal your supplies, you and your family come first. Personal survival will soon be first on the list.

    It’s not too late to start preparing, because the govt will be the last one to help if at all.

    It will be back to the basics before the end of the year. We’re still tough resourceful, hard working and common sensed Americans. Now is the time to get physically and mentally fit…..both of these will boost your immune system which is important if not much healthcare is available. And pray everyday.

    • Paul

      Health is always important. Any time you spend in that waiting room is wasted.

      Veggies and herbs do not only taste good, but you can grow them at home. Herbs are not big. Grow them on the window sill. They smell nice, too. We had tomatos in pots on the balcony. Not many, but tasty. With a bit effort you can also make compost from kitchen scraps.

      The important thing here is to hone your skills. It’s not for making money. I wouldn’t buy expensive growing kits for a salad bar.

      But a pot of basil to go with that tomato salad ..

      And you can grow gifts, too. No need to buy gifts. It’s more personal.

    • http://targetfocustrainingdvd.com Human Weapon

      Great comment Cleo! I like people who offer solutions and encouragement.

      I agree that the U.S. and the world will be a very different place by the end of 2012.

      Having a gun is great. But in today’s world of remorseless criminal violence… it’s not enough. Learn how to defend yourself.

      Keep the faith and pray continually. :-)

    The philosophy of Grover Norquist that envisions reducing the size of the Federal Government to a point where it can be drowned in a bathtub is being realized at the state and local level.

  • Traffix

    So it’s not just me who noticed this.

  • Rodster

    It’s sad really what’s happened to this Country but more so individuals. I was appalled by the Life Guard incident in Miami as I live in SW Florida so there is a connection there. Let’s not forget the Zombie cannibal in Miami Beach recently who stripped off his clothes and began chewing the face off of a homeless man. It took 6 bullets to bring him down and the cops killed him. No ‘Bath Salts’ were found in his system.

    The thing that is the most apparent thing to me is the outright EVIL that we are witnessing in society not only here but around the world.

    Which begs the question. Why is this happening? Is it because we have become a more secular society and have done our best to remove all traces of God whether it be Jesus or whoever out of our lives?

    I’m definitely not a Bible thumper, by no means but we are witnessing just the opposite of love and peace. It’s more like evil and every person for themselves today. Pretty sad what a modern/urbanized world has turned into. ;)

    • 1lostokie

      Rodster, you asked, “Why is this happening? Is it because we have become a more secular society and have done our best to remove all traces of God whether it be Jesus or whoever out of our lives?” Assuming you really want an answer:

      Romans 1:18-32 – 18)For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who by their unrighteousness suppress the truth. 19)For what can be known about God is plain to them, because God has shown it to them. 20)For his invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse. 21)For although they knew God, they did not honor him as God or give thanks to him, but they became futile in their thinking, and their foolish hearts were darkened. 22)Claiming to be wise, they became fools, 23)and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images resembling mortal man and birds and animals and reptiles.

      24)Therefore God gave them up in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, to the dishonoring of their bodies among themselves, 25)because they exchanged the truth about God for a lie and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever! Amen.

      26)For this reason God gave them up to dishonorable passions. For their women exchanged natural relations for those that are contrary to nature; 27)and the men likewise gave up natural relations with women and were consumed with passion for one another, men committing shameless acts with men and receiving in themselves the due penalty for their error.

      28)And since they did not see fit to acknowledge God, God gave them up to a debased mind to do what ought not to be done. 29)They were filled with all manner of unrighteousness, evil, covetousness, malice. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, maliciousness. They are gossips, 30)slanderers, haters of God, insolent, haughty, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents, 31)foolish, faithless, heartless, ruthless. 32)Though they know God’s decree that those who practice such things deserve to die, they not only do them but give approval to those who practice them.

    Many families returned to their homes following the recent wildfires in Colorado only to discover that their houses had been robbed and looted.

    Serves them right for cutting all the fire and police protection. Now all the conservatives there are begging the gov to come to their rescue.

    • http://targetfocustrainingdvd.com Human Weapon

      On behalf of all Coloradans, keep your asinine comments to yourself.

      Nobody deserves to have their house looted, especially after being forced out by a devastating fire.

      It’s not a conservative/liberal issue. It’s a lack of morals that causes people to take advantage of others that way.

      • Gary2

        again–you reap what you sow. If you dumb conservatives cut fire and police then do not be surprised that there is no one to help put out the fire and protect you from being robbed.

        This is such obvious common sense that your response simply confirms how stupid conservatives are.

        This is clearly a liberal/conservative issue to the max.

      • Gary2

        Hey tea billies newsflash–when you cut staff/positions they will not be there to help when needed.

        “budget cuts Colorado Springs made in 2010 that decreased the number of public safety workers on hand when the wild fires first started”.

        • http://targetfocustrainingdvd.com Human Weapon

          The winds shifted and were blowing 60MPH, which caused embers to travel over two fire breaks, and into the communities.

          Colorado Springs could have had thousands of firefighters on hand and they wouldn’t have stopped that massive firestorm, so it’s not about having more public safety workers.

          Surely you know that Denver and Colorado Springs are controlled by liberals, not conservatives.

          Why do you think Obummer selected Denver for his inauguration?

    What we are seeing so far is just the opening scene. It is going to get a lot worse. Most people can not take heavy pressure, and some have had just such pressure since 2008. As long as at one end, you have people with more money, than they could spend in 5 lifetimes. And at the other end, people who have bought into the nonsense, that money solves everything. There is just no way, for that to end well. Greed is a terrible thing, it will destroy everything it touches.

    It’s obvious that our society is unraveling right before our very eyes. What’s truly scary is – all things considered, it’s not even that bad yet!

    It used to be, that people worried about burglaries or their car getting stolen, or maybe getting mugged. Now we have to worry about whether we’ll be eaten by a crazed fellow human being, or shot by roving gangs of youths, among many other threats. Yes, worry about the kids. Worry about the parents as well! Kids follow by example, and some examples adults are teaching them are:

    Beat up each other at your graduation ceremony.
    Trip up the dad of a player on your opposing hockey team.
    Beat up another cheerleader’s mom.
    Lie, cheat and steal to get whatever you want.
    Use “bath salts”, walk down a street and eat someone’s face or arm off. If you’re feeling compassionate, just set them on fire.

    We didn’t use to be this way. Do not mourn the recent passing of Andy Griffith, as much as mourn what America was like in the not so distant past (yes, the TV show idealized and fictionalized a lot of that, and the recent past was definitely not without its problems!) But still…. you have to wonder if we really are becoming a nation of insane savages.

    C’mon Christian America, let’s go bomb some more Moslems

    • http://thetruthfulone.com The Truthful One

      What Christians are you referring to MichaelR?

      Bush Sr. and Bush Jr. are not Christian, anymore than Obummer is.

      Study history and you’ll see that the Bushes were part of the Skull and Bones secret society at Yale, which is Luciferian.

      They both promote the New World Order, which again is Luciferian.

      I would look to Israel to see who is causing the bombing of Moslems. Israel controls the U.S. military, and the government, and the media, and the banks, and the Federal Reserve, and… well, you get the picture.

      And if you were paying attention, you would see that Christians are being killed around the world too.

    The next wave will be worse and the next might be devastating. We have to stop acting like spectators and start to do something about it. you may be safe now but it wont last. It wont matter what your job is, where you live or how rich you are. It’s time to act. We will all eventually pay the price – one way or another. Our problem are huge. It will take new thinking and fantastic effort to turn things around. The kind of thinking we have never seen before. Things like voting and protesting isn’t new thinking and they’re definitely not fantastic. That’s why they won’t produce any real change. Real change may even be beyond your understanding, but you have to grab a hold of it.

    Thank you Michael I hate to be a bearer of more bad news but there was another act of violence in Helena over the weekend 2 stabbings. My girlfriend came over here this weekend to see how America used to be and she is ready to leave the city. I set her up with a small pistol because Im scared for her safety I wont go into details but she was attacked last summer and is still under threats so I hooked her up. Bear in mind this is the most peaceful sweet woman Ive ever known but its amazing when you become a victim of violence your attitudes about guns change. I watched a woman who never fired a gun in her life become empowered. The truth is we are all going to have to change our perspectives about violence. Not everyone and everywhere is safe. And us as good men need to help our women become stronger. God made us the stronger spiritual vessel for a reason. We are the guiding light of our families. Despite what the media and movies have tried to portray us men as stupid and weak we must protect our women and children from the people mentioned in this article. As for me i will stay on gaurd and be ready for the chaos that is coming. I want my girl and her kids to know they always have a safe haven from the storms. Today I am grateful. Stay safe my friends and to all the men the husbands the boyfriends You are the rock. You must look after your loved ones.

        I honestly dont know Michael but its not the town I grew up in anymore. Im so glad I moved the hell outta there I just wish my girlfriend could leave too. Since Ive been gone there has been police killing civilians, double murders, strings of armed robberies and police standoffs, sexual crimes against women and children, drunks stabbing each other in the bars and so on. I cant believe this is happening in what I thought was one of the safest states to live in. Sad times really.

    A few days ago I venture over to my brother’s house to pick him up for work. I get there early, so I wait outside for him to come out of the house and get into my truck. Well, I was waiting outside for about ten minutes when suddenly a police car pulls up to the side of the truck. A policeman gets get and walks up to the window of my truck and asks me: “How are you doing today, sir?” Everything seems ordinary until a second policeman walks up and tells me that there have been a whole lot of drug exchanges going on around the neighborhood where I was located. He asked me if I was a drug dealer.

    The first policeman took my license and returned to his car to run a check on me for warrants. The remaining policeman asked me if I was a drug dealer again. I responded “No sir, I am not a drug dealer.” He asked me if I was working and I responded, “Not right now. I am having trouble finding a job.” He was essentially grilling me to find evidence.

    The policman running a check on me returned my license and both of them left me alone.

    Perhaps it was a routine stop and check? I was affraid that they would try and hall me off to jail where I would have to pay a bunch of fines and penalties to support their pensions.

    • Cinderella Man

      You dont have to show the cop bastard you ID if youre not accused of a crime. Just be annoying to them ask them questions “Why do I need to show you my ID officer have I been accused of a crime?” “am I being detained?” ect. ect Most people dont realize you dont have to show them an ID on demand. Unless you are suspected of a crime tell them to go to hell in a polite way!

    Usually when you see a lot of people who are “down and out” you can attribute it to some mistakes they made that led them to their situation. But in this economy many hardworking, skilled people are falling on hard times through no fault of their own.

    I recently had to let a buddy of mine borrow $500 just to keep up with his bills. This is a guy who has a upper-middle class job. Another one of my buddies (also upper middle class job) went through a rough divorce and cant afford to live by himself anymore. So now he lives with me.

    I haven’t been affected by this economy yet by the grace of god and some hard work on my part. Yet, I’m very aware of how desperate and immoral people have become. I live in a great neighborhood with guarded gates, security cameras and roving security patrol but I’m not taking any chances.

    I work nights so I have an arsenal of weapons (including body Armour) at home. I taught my wife to shoot them all. As I type shes sleeping with a battle rifle next to her. We have ran drills on what to do if someone breaks into the house. She will dial 911, put them on speaker, give them our address, put on the Armour (next to the bed), get into the strategic spot in the bedroom and wait.

    If someone tries to break down the master bedroom I have instructed her to shoot them until the magazine is empty. It might be a bit overboard to some but with the direction the US is headed I’m not taking any chances when it comes to the safety of my family. They will not EVER end up on one of the tragic headlines of a newspaper.

    • Colin

      Did you ever ask yourself why the Torah proscribed that a child must be a month old, and no younger, for the annual tithe? It is because, according to the Talmud, a child younger than a month old is a piece of meat. If the child survives a month and a day, the child is seen as a viable member of society. In some of the cases involving abortion, the child is incapable of surviving days or weeks. I think in those cases that it is justifiable to end the pregnancy, to spare both the mother and the child from suffering, and I would support the mother’s right to end the child’s life.

    The issue is called “Convenientology” (why not everything else is -ology ) now…………..

    Man had everything they could possibly need, then came Jealously and Greed……

    we are at the point progress means everything has to be ,more convenient,faster and done through technology. All things we can do without.

    Just think about where “Greed” so called progress has taken us .

    Never satisfied of what god has given us.

    Women need to be men.

    Men need to be women.

    Children lost their parents to “Jobs”

    Prepare for death before you even get a chance to live.

    Our bodies are checked by computers….

    Never satisfied of what god has given us.

    Our “Time” is has become Taken up by wasteful things , TV , xbox , computers ext.

    Then both parents had to work to “so called get a head(no such thing) only to have to pay for a nanny , daycare , landscaper ext.

    Everything “Technology” work, play, sports, food, sex, ext.

    Everything “Speed” to keep up with our wasted time, and needed resources.

    Everything “Smaller” we have “Shrunk the World”

    We created the ” Agonizing go Round” that never stops.
    Everything made “Complicated” to create more convenience ….. or more “Convenience to make everything more Complicated.

    But after all that, if it ever stops you end up with what you started with. Just dizzy, exhausted and wish you where home.

    So in the end our life has zipped by all where left with is “should of , would of , could of.

    Think of this seriously now, and put your life in prospective, if you are fortunately to live to 90 now your breakdown might look like this….

    30 years “sleeping”
    05 years “as a child” (getting shorter)
    41 years “of school, work , and travel time to work”
    10 years “of old age (75+)”

    06 years “a whooping 6 yrs to enjoy yourself ”

    I don’t know about you but i getting off this computer and going to enjoy myself”

    Now you know why “Life is to short”

      in a relative way
      but you’re older

      Shorter of breath, and one day closer to death.

      never seem to find the time
      Plans that either come to naught
      like half a page of scribbled lines

      Hanging on in quiet desperation……………..TIME, pink floyd. Dark Side of The Moon

      When I think of modern America I always am reminded of that old Harry Chapin song: Cats in the Cradle. How screwed up all of our priorities are. We give children everything we can and then they grow up spoiled and with an entitlement mentality. The family is being destroyed and marriage redefined so now millions of kids lack the influence of a father to teach work ethic, discipline and self respect. Women turn their kids over to babysitters and daycares for rearing-even in the formative and nurturing years so that they can pursue a “career.’ Then we wonder why these kids grow up cold-hearted and lacking basic human compassion and empathy.

      When parents aren’t working they are too exhausted to spend quality time with kids so the kids are babysat by the absolute garbage of TV’s and video games ( if they haven’t been introduced to drugs, sex or a music scene yet). Or they spend hour upon hour with their Facebook “friends” discussing mindless banalities while failing to develop any social skills or true friendships with living and breathing people….

      The depths of this disaster and roots of these unfeeling behaviours has so many integrated causes that I don’t believe that we as humans could ever untangle the disaster we’ve become. Only a great reset or God’s direct intervention can save us from ourselves at this point.

  • NorthernCanuck

    The moral collapse isn’t confined to America. It’s occurring, as though planned, throughout the Western world. Go to the ‘Daily mail’ website in the UK and see just how far it has advanced there – from expense-claim scandals in Parliament, to interest rate fixing by the banks, to recent riots with looting, arson, assaults and theft, to generational joblessness in many families coupled with widesptread abuse of the UK’s ‘gold mine’ welfare provisions, to feral youth roaming the streets, to wiespread acceptance of single motherhood, having children out of wedlock and multiple children by serial ‘partners’, to judges and a ‘justice system’ that seems to bend over backwards to sympathize with the criminal….can anyone really say that this social decay hasn’t been PLANNED? When America and the UK were largely homogenous and Christian nations this didn’t seem to be the case and people generally displayed honesty, morality and what you referred to as ‘character’ – now that, through liberalized immigration policies and ‘multiculturalism’ this has been engineered to be no longer the case, lawlessness, immorality, viciousness, envy and greed all seem to be on an upward trajectory! There is now no common and binding ‘social contract’ which deplores such things – instead, they are all to often held up for admiration and imitation in the press, on TV, in the movies and in rap music.

    • Bonus Gift

      I agree completely. Import the Third World and you become a Third World country. This is just basic logic and empirical fact. In addition, and as mentioned, it is a proven fact that as you make a society/locale less homogenous the resulting “society” tends to become more fragmented and dysfunctional (the term “balkanized” ring any bells?). In short, people tend to trust each other less and sympathy, empathy, etc. are largely lost (escapism and loss of “community” are the order of the day until final breakdown; think Los Angeles as one of the most “diverse” places on Earth). The question at that point isn’t how or when this ends (not well, and it has already begun), it’s really how bad it gets (and some of that depends on how bad this depression will be, and how many more imported parasites we get that don’t look or act like the founding stock natives)?

    Michael it is exactly for the type of examples you’ve listed that I have to disagree with the optimists who say “We will get through this because we are Americans and we’ve always managed to get through hard times in the past.” There are still people who are trying their best as they struggle and they deserve our admiration. But the overall character of the nation as a whole is not what it used to be.

    25 signs is a long list and I’m sure you could have kept going if you wanted to. Back in the 60s and 70s I was one of the thousands of kids who routinely hitchhiked all over the place. Thousands of miles were travelled with no major problems and very few minor ones. I sure wouldn’t advise it now though and I think most would agree. Trusting strangers for a ride is pretty much a thing of the past. Who but the most desperate would try to thumb a ride today? And how many would feel safe offering one anyway?

    I will greatly appreciate an article on say 50-100 crimes by minors. Like the 13 year old sexually assaulting a 5 year old at a McDonald’s playground (I think it was in Ohio) or the three high schools stripping naked a 11 year old boy (this was last year in Florida). The reason this is important is because if kids do this stuff, then the parents may be a lot worse for not catching warning signs in the beginning. Although, Kudos to the parents for turning in their own 13 year old (wow!).

    Oh, c’mon, live and let live. Isn’t that what freedom means? “I’m free to do anything I want to anyone I want?” That is the message that the last several generations have been taught. They don’t have to work for food, or a dwelling, or a cell phone, or an education. We hand them money to buy Ding Dongs, X-boxes, drugs, smokes, liquor, we give them free rent, we give them free school lunches and breakfast, the local jails are nothing more than a place to get “3 hots and a cot” for a couple of days, and the cry from Washington is that we “must give more”. Both parties are nothing more than kept salves paid for by Wall Street, and the corruption is so endemic that no amount of treatment will cure the patient.

        Check your facts..the slave owners in the south were Democrats..the KKK was founded by democrats. Washington, Jefferson, Franklin–they were abolitionists. In less than 100 years from our formation as a sovereign nation the anti-slavery party ( now known as the Republican Party) was formed and Abe Lincoln was its first president-and slavery ended. A remarkable testament to our conservative founding fathers as the first broke away from England, finished the war in 1812 for good, and then within 50 years had overthrown British histories and atrocities like slave ownership.

        These are the facts. Your close minded hatred will never change this fact although it brings up another excellent example of what is wrong with America and dying.

        People like Gay Vet ignore our heritage. They paint our Founding Fathers in an untrue light and espouse and parrot the false teachings of the liberal school systerm and MSM/Pravda. Revisionist history and a lack of pride for our heritage as apeople is destructive and leaves us un-anchored and without any national pride.

    Buzzy, I don’t think the politicians (or the bankers) understand the level of anger in this country. And it transcends political parties. In other words, I’ve talked to all sorts of people and it does not matter if they are Repubs or Dems, they are furious, desperate, depressed, and feel as if they have no voice.

    Some TV news show said that almost half of Americans are so fed up that they’ve left both parties and call themselves independents. Yet it’s impossible to get a third party going because the Dems and Repubs have pretty much made it extremely difficult. So if you are middle or working class and think about running for office, there’s no way you can afford it without selling out. For example, in some states you need $30,000 to apply to run for the Senate. The only way a poor person can get that is if some company or some rich guy will foot the bill, and they’ll want something in return.

    P.S. I’ve been prepping for some time, although I don’t have much money. Still, you can find plenty of emergency equipment at yard sales. For example, I found a never-used propane camp stove for $5 and all I need is a $3 cannister to cook, should the electricity go out or if I can’t pay the bill anymore.

    P.P.S. Re the electric bill: don’t know about you, but my state removed the cap on the electric companies and now it’s so expensive I’m selling off my extra stuff at flea markets in order to pay the bill.

    Stories like this always amaze me that we haven’t started crashing yet. Just 10 years ago, many these stories would have led the news for days for being so outrageous; today ? nothing or maybe 1 minute of coverage.

    You are so right. Now is the time to really understand your health is your wealth. This is an election years and these politicians will say and do anything. I do not believe the economy is getting better at all.

  • a lot more trouble…

    Another great article Michael, you really have done an excellent presentation!
    I enjoyed reading all the links and watching the videos because you really did take time to investigate the decline as it is really happening.

    One note, wouldn’t you compare the last part of your story about scientists unable to find work here in the USA, to the collapse of the Soviet Union? Where thousands of scientist came to America to find work and only to part time work or even worse as maids and nannies.
    example;

    Philadelphia Inquirer – September 21, 1992 – G01 NATIONAL

    ILL-PAID RUSSIAN SCIENTISTS FIND TEMPORARY JOBS IN THE WEST THEY LAND SHORT-TERM CONTRACTS AT TOP UNIVERSITIES. WHEN THEIR STINTS ARE OVER, THEY RETURN HOME.
    Sergei Burlatsky is a theoretical physicist at the prestigious Russian Academy of Sciences. But he doesn’t work there anymore. He can’t support his family on his monthly salary of about $35. So he has become a sort of test-tube-for-hire at Western universities, working a few months at one, a few months at another and then returning home for the summer with the money he’s able to save. Russia, which over the last decades has produced some of the…

    We are truly in the bowels of the collapse and the media is covering it up as best as they can.
    But you Michael are exposing the truth of just how severe the decline really is.
    God Bless you and keep you safe.

      Interesting point about the collapse of the Soviet Union.

    My 4 and a half year old son has “issues” and is beinging evaluated for autism spectrum disorder. He is actually a genius and a music savant but maturity-wise, he acts about two. One of the inappropriate things he like to do is touch strangers.

    Last weekend we went to the Diamondbacks game and he patted a 60ish guy on the head when I wasn’t looking. The grumpy old bastard became FURIOUS and I really thought he was going to attack me over being patted on the head by a small child even though I had apologized.

    One of the few realists CNBC has ever put on their show-is Nouriel Roubini (who most accurately predicted the 2008 Financial Crises). One has to wonder if he’ll ever be on the show again after this Bloomberg interview where he suggests that for the bankers engaged in fixing LIBOR rates and engaged in other illegal activities-the best way to stop that is to take some of them “out and hang them in the streets.” He says 2013 is shaping up to be worse than 2008:

    Our society is definitely rotting. I commute part of the way to work via public transportation. The level of racial hatred I’ve seen in the past year or so has really been an eye opener. Last year while riding the bus, a white man riding a bicycle was crossing the street in the path of the bus. A group of young black men and women began chanting, “Hit him! Hit him!” At first I thought it was some kind of joke but as it went on I realized they were serious. A few months ago while riding the train, I witnessed an older white man instigate a fight with an older black man and say some of the most racist and disgusting things to him that I’ve ever heard in my life. The black gentleman, to his credit, kept his distance and composure despite the vicious verbal attack. Just last week a black man boarded the train and immediately began speaking loudly about whites and how they torture and kill the black man and that hispanics are communists like Fidel Castro.

    The crazy and the dangerous among us really seem to be increasing in numbers and the hatred flows in all directions. And this, when most people still have enough to eat. God help us when that is no longer the case.

    WAIt wait wait a minute! I have lived long enough to tell you there were horrendous things happening in the 50 and 60’s! We did not have “access” through media and other outlets to inform us. As kids we were almost kinapped twice by strangers. Our mother was raped in the 50’s! Our father was almost murdered when he entered his car and a man was hidden in the back seat with a gun to rob him. Children didn’t have the access to much of the drugs that they do now, but I witnessed teens in the 70’s sniffing paint and glue on the corners! My brother was bullied and teased in junior high school, he ran away to join the circus but my father found him! ****** I can go on and on! How many teens joined the “moonies” and got brainwashed?? I remember mother using cardboard to sole our worn out shoes. Sometimes we would go to the city dump to scrape around for old toys!! STOP BEING SO Negative about TODAY! i AM HAPPY and always will look out over my shoulder! I believe in a higher power, and trust me I have felt the hand of God! Start counting your blessings!! Quit complaining and be the solution instead of a whiner! This comes from someone who has seen IT ALL! now have a nice day! Things could be worse! Rome isn’t burning! :)

      This brainwashed knee-jerk response to bad news, claiming that all perception of change is driven by nostalgia for the past, is a media-programmed meme inserted into the tiny American brain so as to numb it into paralysis.

      Anybody who believes for one instant that because “some bad things may have actually also happened in the 1950’s” that there is no difference between America now and then is a sick delusional madman who is part of the problem.

      If you are going to rip the shirt off an entire nation’s back and steal every single thing that is tied down and utterly loot it right down to bedrock before leaving it for dead, you’re going to promote these kinds of spectacular mythologies.

      The America of the 1950s was as close to a terrestial paradise as mankind has ever come in recorded history. As close as they have ever come. Compared to the modern nightmarish sewer that it has been replaced with, there is no comparison.

      People, recognize when thieves have broken into your house, stolen everything of value and replaced what was there before with cheap imitation trinkets before burning the entire place to the ground. They may try to tell you that your six senses are mistaken and that you really have not lost everything that your ancestors built up for you over the past 500+ years. If you’re dumb enough to believe it then maybe you deserve what is happening to you.

      Don’t listen to these useful idiots/apologists/historical revisionists … the horrific world we live in today is shoddy goods in contrast to what we have lost and had stolen away from us.

    • viviana

      Let’s pull some raw numbers from the FBI Uniform Crime Reports and display them by Worst Year, Best Year, 2010.

      Murder 1991 – 24,700 1962 – 8,530 2010 – 14,748

      Rape 1992 – 109,060 1960 – 17,190 2010 – 84,767

      Assault 1993 – 1,135,610 1960 – 154,320 2010 – 778,901

      Burglary 1980 – 3,795,200 1960 – 912,100 2010 – 2,159,878

      Vehicle Theft 1991 – 1,661,700 1960 – 328,200 2010 – 737,142

      For each of these crimes, 2010 was much improved compared to the worst years on record but still higher than the 1960s lows. You might be wondering what the crime index rates per 100,000 look like. For every crime except one the per 100,000 rates are still higher in 2010 compared to the 1960s lows. The one exception is murder.

      While the 50-year low for murder per 100,000 was in 1962 and 1963 with 4.6 per 100,000, those years were actually down a bit from the rest of the 1960s which ranged from 4.8 to 7.3. What was the 2010 number?– 4.8 per 100,000 – That’s a tie with 1961. Yes, you read that correctly. The murder rate, indexed to population was at a near 50-year low in 2010. Compare that to the worst year, 1980, when the rate was 10.2 per 100,000.

      So what are we to make of these stats? Does it make you feel any differently about the direction we are heading? Personally I blame the news media. The corporations that own the “news” have increasingly applied their entertainment business model to the news division. This has been the case with the national news but in many cases the local news is just as guilty. It means more emphasis on the sensational stories that include crime and violence.

      As I’ve shown, crime is not worse now compared to 20 and 30 years ago. In fact, it’s much improved. But these facts appear to contradict what we are fed by the news media. Ask yourself, how does your local news decide what to report on?

      Amen sister, we need to all get down on our knees and beg the great God and creator Jesus Christ to forgive us for killing millions of babies through abortion. Taking God out of not only our schools but our lives as well. Some of us attend church but most of the church services are entertainment centered not God centered. When we leave the church meeting we leave God there as well.
      Our only hope is to do what the ancient Israelites did on many occasions. Turn from our wicked ways and seek the Lord with our whole hearts.

      • Penny

        yes, Mike, you are so right. We Americans need to repent, and turn from our wicked ways, seek the Lord with our whole heart and ask Him to forgive us and turn this nation around. We must humble ourselves and admit we allowed America to get to this place through apathy. We can not vote for politicans who attend church and then come out supporting marriage between two men or abortion. Vote by what they DO; NOT BY WHAT THEY SAY. Their record cannot be denied.

    There are basics everyone needs to realize before intelligent minds can work together. Regardless of who is president, nothing will change. So stop ********* even debating politics. It is an endless cycle that has no meaning, the agenda is money and that is it. The FDA is purposely making Americans sick. I know first hand. I am a nationally certified pharmacy technician. Without sick unhealthy people they have no funds, hence the “craziness” of Americans. Also television contributes, these reality shows blow my mind. Americans like to watch people fight over trivial things, party, hurt each other, etc… and this entertains them? To me only a crazy person would enjoy half the things on television. My advice is to watch what you consume, the FDA wants to toxify your body. Keep yourself as healthy and alert as possible as to when things get worse. If I had it my way everyone would grow they’re own food, boycott banks, and get off of they’re fat lazy a**es. This world makes no sense anymore but I can only say/do so much to help people out before I have to start looking out for myself. People make it hard on me telling me what I say is absurd or conspiracy when I know facts and they are being used. I used to be an anarchist, an “every man for themselves” type woman but now I am HORRIFIED as to what is going to happen to these people. When you can’t even touch your toes, run a mile, or go two hours without eating McDonald’s how can you escape a dangerous situation?

    A simple solution…Close the borders and protect them with our military brought home from overseas. Abolish NAFTA and ban imports. Imports that are necessary will be highly tariffed.

It is no wonder that there is not much left, or to hope for, in the dumbed-down and abused AmeriKKKan population.

    My point being is if I could witness and live through a lot of pain and misery and still wake up and greet each new day as a new beginning ANYONE can. I have been so poor I ate popcorn for weeks. I would pray and wonder why I was being punished. One day the answer came, it was “I” who was punishing myself with my own thoughts. Yes! Dwelling on negative and woe is me, will get you nothing! I worked hard, stayed on the straight and narrow. Got away from negative influences the best I could. Read inspirational books, thought about how short life really is to dwell on the bad. Smiled at sad looking people. Volunteered to those even more unfortunate than myself. Saved my money, met a like minded soul started a life. My children went through college, and all volunteer their services to others! LIFE IS WHAT YOU MAKE IT! Wake up each day and try and find 2 positive things! remember “misery loves company” don’t pay company to misery and gossip mongers! If not for the Grace of God go I! Today is the beginning of the rest of your life. (corny I know, but if you use these as your mantra you will see and feel the difference in your mind) Feed your soul not just your stomach! and btw I was raised in LA suburb, not overly crime ridden. Sometimes you draw to yourself, what you dwell on. Think positive and you will attract the same. I am living proof. And yes, I too have felt the depths of despair :( I decided to change my stinkin thinkin! Best to you all! Life is short be happy! :)

    • Chestertonian

      Sister Goldenhair, what you say is good and positive and yes, we should be reading inspirational (that is to me, spiritual, Christian) books. The bad news presented on this site by Michael is not aimed at promoting despair or anger at God or some kind of fascination with evil. I believe Michael intends to follow our Lord’s injunction, “Be wise as serpents and as innocent as doves.” We have a hope in our Redeemer and in His Blood. The bad news told to us here is entirely factual, and is needed to jolt us out of our “American Exceptionalism”, the long-standing belief that America is above the troubles and limitations of the rest of the world, and that we are somehow more beloved by God. This philosophy also tends to make “Americanism” a substitute for obedience to and love for Jesus Christ.
      So, I find the fragments of your story told to us to be inspiring. And I don’t want to fall into, or make others fall into despair. Let’s hope in the Lord, but not in the false gods of American wealth, prosperity, or government. Blessings to you.

    This isn’t actually very new behavior. Money facilitates hiding corruption and eliminating opportunities to engage in it. Create the right elements and people follow the same laws lightning must adhere to — they will follow the path of least resistance, ethical or not.

    If you’ve been on the bottom rung well before 2008, like I have, you knew how to spot scum, unreliable people, and people who would rob and kill you blind if they had a chance, and you learned to isolate yourself. The reality is, economics have changed, but human nature hasn’t. We are the same beasts we were a thousand years ago when raping and pillaging was the order of the day . . . and now we’ve come full circle.

    If anything, many of my co-workers do not understand why I won’t talk more with them or why I am so aloof — I pay attention to them. Even small actions give me a clue as to how they would respond if they were in a situation where they had a chance to hurt someone for their own gain or do something morally upright and save another person. It doesn’t matter if they make $100k a year or if they dress in a three-piece suit and have a McMansion — if they spend all day at their job and do little or no work, offer no solutions, blame other people, pitch temper tantrums when things don’t go their way and do everything possible to evade responsibility of any sort — mark my words, the only difference between them and someone who would rape and kill you on the street is they don’t have a weapon in their hand yet. I hate to say it — it’s how I evaluate people. And most of the people I work with don’t stack up.

    Conversely, I’ve learned to make friends with people who work hard and never complain; who are grateful when they are given something and don’t look for defects in everything around them; who don’t say terrible things behind other people’s backs and care less about their appearances and more about what they do, and make the best of what they have. These are the same people who will pick you up when you fall down, or, let’s say, run outside their perimeter to pull you out of the ocean if you’re drowning — knowing they’ll be fired for it.

  • Johnny Shiloh

    In a nutshell, this is the root cause of America’s national decline and approaching ruin:

    During the Dark Ages the papacy ruled with an iron fist and millions of god fearinf men, women and children were slaughtered. God raised up the great protestant reformers in the 16th century and then He opened up the New World where protestants could find a deliverance from the Inquisition and centuries of persecution.

    Our Founding Fathers determined to build a new nation upon the broad foundation of civil and religious liberty. This new nation excited and the wonder and admiration of the world and the United States rose to a place among the most powerful nations of the earth.

    But prosperity and false charity blinded the eyes of protestants and they succumbed to Rome’s enchantments, and the ecumenical movement ensued. Protestantism was one of the greatest secrets of America’s prosperity. There is now no protestant on the Supreme Court, but there are five Catholics. The papacy is directing American domestic and foreign policy behind the scenes to an alarming extent.

    As one writer put it, “They are working in blindness. They do not see that if a Protestant government sacrifices the principles that have made them a free, independent nation, and through legislation brings into the Constitution, principles that will propagate papal falsehood and papal delusion, they are plunging into the Roman horrors of the Dark Ages.”

      The “great protestant reformers ” were just as vicious as many of the “Papists”. Study the history of massacres on both sides. You are a bigot and no doubt would like nothing better than to exterminate those “Romanist idolators”. The sorry part is that you no doubt think that Jesus Christ would not only agree but encourage you as well to do so. See a psychiatrist for anti psychotic meds and and pschotherapy as you need it badly..

    Therefore, thus says The Lord…

    I have trumpeted the call to awake,
    Yet who has heard My call?…

    Who has given heed, and walked according to My calling?…

    Wicked and slothful generation! DEAF CHILDREN!
    This world is forsaken! I shall blot out the kingdoms of men!
    I shall wipe them away, and cast them from My sight… FOREVER!

    Never again shall they arise!…

    Never again shall they walk proudly,
    Shaking their fists toward heaven in their self-proclaimed glory,
    Walking after all their perverse lusts, in the pursuit of evil gain…

    I AM THE LORD, AND I HAVE SEEN IT!

    Thus says The Lord: Therefore, I shall speak and this trumpet shall be finished!… And oh what a cry shall be heard, and oh what a bitter weeping shall break forth! Behold, the gnashing of teeth shall come forth from every corner, with a great noise, as the sound of a plague of devouring locusts drawing near!… I shall speak! Behold, whether they will hear or forbear, I shall be heard!
    Lo, this Trumpet before you is but a whisper… For the voice of YaHuWaH shall shake the heavens and the earth, in the Day of His hot displeasure! For none in the earth have known Me, as I truly am… BEHOLD! YOU SHALL ALL KNOW ME! Says The Holy One, The God of Israel, The God of POWER and fierce jealousy, The God who has come forth from His sanctuary, to punish!… For I am The God of judgment!
    Behold, The Mighty One of Jacob has spoken in His authority, yet few have given heed, few have bowed down to give Me glory! Therefore, I shall speak with a greater voice, and the days shall be turned into darkness.

    I shall turn My face against this generation!…

    And all the mountains shall crumble before My presence!…

    All giants shall fall down, and be crushed beneath the weight of their fallen riches!

    The God of recompense is risen up! The God of glory is come out!… Behold, I am risen up in My vengeance! AND I SHALL SURELY REPAY THE NATIONS! I have seen! I have beheld it!… I HAVE SEEN IT!… NOTHING is hidden before My eyes! Neither are My ears at all dull in hearing! Tears of great sorrow fill My eyes… Flames of fire are shown up behind them!… My face is red in My indignation!
    My heart’s inferno rages over that which is before My eyes!… Persecution! Murder! Death fills every corner! Sin overtakes the land, bursting forth as a flood FROM THE HEARTS OF MEN! My people are slain and disemboweled, and paraded down the streets, hung upon the walls as a trophy and spoils of war, IN THE NAME OF THE GOD OF ABRAHAM!… The name, by which I am called among them… Allah, is NOT My name!…
    Despicable peoples!… YOU are the walking dead in My eyes!… Shall I not repay?! Shall I not come down and tear My enemies to pieces?! Shall I not destroy their lands, and persecute their people with the sound of My voice, day and night?! Shall I not move swiftly, and grind them to powder beneath the feet of The Holy One of Israel?! Shall I not come down and consume?!… And destroy?!

    THUS SAYS THE LORD GOD OF ISRAEL!…

    NO MORE shall any god stand before Me!

    NO MORE shall any creation, made by the hands of man,
    Stand proudly before My face!…””

    The only thing I have found to be True 24-7 in this life is Gods Word. We as mortals have a difficult time relating to the concept of a Creator. Yet we also have the ability to research Truths and evidence. Therefore I would ask those who would feel what I am saying is honest and from the heart to check it out for themselves. 1. How many generations read, yet did not comprehend the scriptures that stated (Over 2000 years ago) that”There will be a one day war that will kill 1/3rd of mankind” (Is that even possible in a 24 hour period today in a Nuclear World)?
    2. There will be in the latter days a “One World Government and Everyone will be required to have a “Mark” approved by this Government, to “Buy Sell Or Trade” / Is that out of the question in this age and time.
    3. There will be a great increase in Earth Quakes and Starvation though out the World.
    4. It will be as in the days of Noah, “Men will lust after men & Women after Women” and “That which is called bad and that which is bad will be called good”.
    4. “Israel will be restored in the last days and surely this generation will not pass before the return of the Lord” Who would have thought any nation could be restored after 2000 years exile. 1948 it happened.
    5. “The Whole World will turn against Israel before the Lord returns to establish His Kingdom”. Why is the whole world consumed with a Nation as smaller than one of the 50 U.S. States?
    6. “In the Last Days “Christians & Jews will be sought out and killed for not denouncing their Faith”! Are not Christians & Jews (Even The Whole Jewish Nation” not today being Threatened with Elimination?
    7. Has Hebrew Scripture really been changed over the century’s and did not the “Dead Sea Scrolls” found in 1940’s prove “No written Scripture passed down by Jews as ever changed from the Original Text”.

    Jesus said “Seek and You Shall Find, Ask and the Door will be Opened”! God Bless Americas Youth!

    Things are getting worse because of globalization of money, the lack of condemnation of exorbitant salaries and bonuses, and people dropping out and not holding the government officials accountable for the damage they are doing. Wring your hands and blow your mind and things will get worse. You’re responsible, along with the rest of the citizens, for what the country becomes. Make a difference. Read The Price of Inequality, by Joseph Stiglitz to get a clue of what needs to be done. I’ve traveled this country for the past 2 years. Saw a lot of beauty, and met good people, without a negative incident. Well, there was one snob. I’m sure one can find trouble, but you have a good chance of steering clear of it, as well.

    Seems that if you lower the standards for schooling, morals, ethics & other behaviors you will reap what you sow. These examples are proof that its only going to get worse.

    Forget about God and dissapearring off to heaven in a puff of smaoke, the problem is that emotionless psychopaths have found their way into the top levels of the financial institutions of the world. The problem, therefore, is money, or to be more precise our valuing of and striving for it. The money that they print is valueless, it only has value by our conditioned acceptance of it as valuable. It also is the kingpin of oppression. Who is going to be a policeman or military man if there is no pay? How quickly would the whole thing change if the 99% who are being bent over, refused to play along. We are responsible as it is by our acceptance of their money and therefore rules and fasctic dictates that they exercise their wealth and power. If everyone refused to value money, who would be paid to take your house, who could be bribed to pass ridiculous corporate laws like CISPA and NDAA etc. It is no good looking around for someone else to blame, we hand them the stick with which they beat us every time we spend their slavery tokens. Barter trade skills, do anything you can to avoid using money and paying taxes. Screw the psychopaths.

    This article is shocking! The reports of robbing, even of some killing has gone on since time began. The remaining reports of shocking evil, debased, and satanic sadistic acts are mind blowing.

    I grew up and spent my high school years in the 50’s. Those of you who say it wasn’t any better are WRONG. I could list dozens of examples but wont. People who lived it know it.

    My father was a policeman in Pittsburgh, PA for 25 years from the late 40’s on. He never talked about “zombie” type killings, beatings of the homeless, rapes of children, teen prostitution and debauchery on the streets everyday. Was there crime? Of course, but not of the type listed i this article.

    There is bad; this described here is sadistic evil of untold misery.

    The gate has been left open and we as a nation shall not survive the evil that has been let loose.

    For those of you who would like to put the blame for this all on those with money, etc…..there was no money during the great depression and people did not resort to the types of evil acts presented here.

    This collapse comes from the moral decay from within!

    You know what scares me more. Not the list of the 25 signs. In capitalism what is happening is normal on where we are at today and it will continue and nothing we can do about it. Capitalism and corporations today have a life of their own. What scares the do-do out of me are the people who made all the comments. They all have the answers, they all know the problems, they all claim they are out of the mass. So my question, what are they doing about it. If the ship sinks we are all going down even them. All I would love to know what kind of life style they are living. They all don’t like what is happening and condemn what is happening but I bet they would not give up some of the things they have work so hard to get. Am sorry folks but what you see is it. The only thing that is going to happen is it will get worse. And not till its over because it will never be over for capitalism.

    Look at what is happening in South Africa:

    AmeriKans are concerned about being environmentally friendly while waging war.

    Obama was awarded the Nobel Peace prize, and yet he makes kill lists and is worried about the military being “green” and saving the environment. But people are dying, innocent men, women, and children, because of the destruction Amerika is bringing, but we should be environmentally friendly. How’s that for irony?

    Amerikans are worried about helping the environment and alternative energy for the military, but no one seems to care about the global government killing and the police state. Strange. Furthermore, when you have scientists, scholars, architects and engineers, all saying that Building 7 and the whole official story of 9/11, the reason for the global war, could not be possible, well, that says something right there then, doesn’t it?

    “What can we do as a society to bring about more self respect, more personal responsibility, more understanding of moral and ethical behavior?

    · Instead of our hyper-war activities where we carry on 10 year combat and spend trillions of dollars, we might spend money on our schools, libraries and jobs for the poor that give self-respect along with a decent home and community.

    · We might engage in rearing our children with sports, community responsibilities and healthy personal behaviors fostered by fathers and mothers.”–By Frosty Wooldridge

    It has boiled down to Dems vs GOP and Tea party; rich vs poor, black vs white, darkness vs light, wealth vs poverty. The govt. is corrupt and greedy. Were a disgrace on the world stage; our kids have forgotten manners and have been indulged- there is no consequence for poor behavior. We are a nation of whiners and yet we have it better than most.
    And yet we are ONE nation under God who has forgotten this. Time to pray folks because nothing else is working.
