There are some serious issues going on, but it just seems so sketchy to talk about it on the internet.

But I will say, something is goin down. When I say that, I mean like right this instant.

I had some weird dreams last night, and I woke up feeling uneasy.
Any ideas on things going on in the world that might be causing this?

I really think people are coming to terms with the US and are spreading the word, they are finally trying to do something about it informing people anyway they can. I know i have started doing it the whole US cant be reached from ATS itself.

The people where I live have changed so much in the last five years, and this is the unchangeable south USA! People are tired, crabby, sad, worried, its like hope is gone. The person I voted for president seems nothing like the campaigner pretense. This is my personal impression. He needs to instill hope back into the American public, maybe he has none. We hired him on his energy level I am sure. All the news on TV and the internet has been dire predictions. I keep cutting up my credit cards because I don't want to be bothered with the inconveinece of them. The simpler I make my life free of major commitments the more happiness and freedom I feel. I volunteered for the schools for eigth years hoping to help out and make some great friends. Well fiends require money, and now that the money has dried up everywhere, so have the supportive friendships. Everyone is already in survival mode. Free time is spent deciding how to be more frugal.

Here are the ten things I think are worrying people these days...

1. for most people, compensation has been flat, not keeping up with inflation (for decades now) while top corporate executives are paid truly obscene amounts of money, so there has been this ever widening gap between the haves and the have nots, so we in the lower to middle class have been squeezed close to a breaking point...
people are beginning to loathe and become seriously angry at overpaid bankers and corporate execs

2. as the media are trying to say we're in a period of economic recovery, the average person knows we're not yet anywhere nearly out of an extremely severe recession that could easily transition into Great Depression number two (it already has in some regions of the USA)... laying off workers has become very commonly accepted in the corporate culture whereas back in the 1950's through the 1970's this was not the case

3. everyone knows that our government keeps the biggest threats top secret, so everyone also knows that if something really terrible happens, we would be the last to know because the government won't level with us about anything and now that Obama has been fully briefed on what's really going on, he won't level with us either (whatever it is, it must be shocking)... for example, chemtrails are obviously real and they've been doing it since the late 1990's but no one will come clean about what it is they're doing... if an asteroid large enough to kill most of the people on Earth was headed our way, the government would save themselves but not tell us and just let us die

4. could the USA win world war III or not? in the past, we had no doubt, but these days no one is too sure about the superpower status anymore considering our debt burden and lack of unity as a nation

5. seeing the instant blow nature dealt to Haiti shows people that you never know when a huge natural disaster can rock your world in a very bad way

6. there may be something to either or both of these possible threats that mainstream media have traditionally laughed off: extraterrestrials, the Illuminati

7. things seem to be speeding up in a high anxiety way... I can't explain it... draw your own conclusions... there is a "speed up" going on and everyone feels it... people are not getting enough quality leisure time while families are breaking up if they're not already broken

8. people are spending way too much time zoning out on electronics and the Internet... it may be negatively affecting our brains

9. there has been a very severe moral decline in the USA over the last forty years

10. another American civil war or race riots could still happen in the USA and everyone knows it

hi all.

I recall a phrase, "shout at a brick long enough and loud enough and it might hear you"!


"If a brick suddenly gets a lot of nuclear radiation in it and you are close to it, you will absorb the rays!"

2 possibilities.

1...our individual Mistreatment of the planet, from leveling the west Virgina mountains for strip mines, to cutting the trees wholesale, has by now been Noticed by the earth! This will not be Good, for our futures.

2....the other possibility, especially in light of 2012, is that something "radiation driven" is happening deep down under the mantle and
the "vibrations" of this activity stimulate everyone up here on the ground.
This will not be good, for our futures!

I am still trying to figure how the grey haired baby boomer's will do when they all get 70+ years old, ten times the number of senile elders, who need Total care, ten times the number of seniors who need their meds:
who oh who is going to pay for all of this, health plans are only tossing a mouse to a hungry tyrannosaur Rex!
And how many people Have I met who have had, as a child, Religious Abuse, where fundamentalist religion was rammed down their brains and now they are Vaccinated Real Good against any kind of Idealism hidden in religion.

I see that many of us have Tossed out the baby with the bathwater, overthrown religion, marriage, values, the Greek-roman western tradition, then just *what* will replace this?! In a sense, I see that the only thing left, thanks to "liberal left politics-thinkings, in academia, is to earn lots of money!!
[gasp! I am beginning to feel that the liberal left is actually reinforcing the excesses of capitalism, as that is the only common denominator left that has value!]
----basic educational law number ONE: the teacher has to be of a higher
"Quality" than her students! Otherwise it is the "blind leading the blind".
But today a "quality" higher than you, means, "another bastard to tell you want the F..k to do"!!
[we all have removed all "old outmoded ways of life", and now the Void
faces us, nakedly! Sarcasm and cynicism are only the tops of the icebergs, of what happens now with people.

I live in a senior Home for Independent living. I see the cynical and depressed elders all around me. their tombstone is now seen, on their roads of life, and NOTHING has prepared them for that Final Exam Question That Counts for all,"is that tombstone a door or a dead end?"!!

Thus in a sense, this Void is one of the Mothers of all of our problems.
Manager owners of a business mis-working employees for higher profits? why yes of course, $$$$ counts for all, what other meaning *IS* there?!
the sane right thinking manager would re-institute slavery if he could, a Sound Business Decision!

So soon, every child will come from a broken home.
Soon, no meanings at all will be valid.

we are sowing dragons teeth broadcasting these infernal seeds from a helicopter! our next generations will have ten times the trouble that we all have?!

How to stop this and install values?
if this goes on long enough, i predict that we all, collective unconsciously, will elect a powerful DICTATOR who will make things right, and kill off or encamp any dissidents! for our own survival, as the Pendulum soon swings the other way!!

I ended up being so tired today, I decided to let myself doze off with no alarm clock, just because I felt like I needed to enter the dream world for a short amount of time. In my dream, My parents were there and we were all in a very special place, and they told me to prepare. I was told it was time for me to learn all about my ancestors and guardian spirits and relics and all kinds of really cool stuff like that. My giant sun dream catcher was in my dream with me, and it was super awesome. I felt like I was being prepared for something.

When i woke up 2 hours later, which was about 5 minutes ago, I had the strangest sense of urgency when I woke up. I really really feel like something huge is going to go down here very soon and we all must start preparing for it. You know, just be ready. Have a couple pairs of clothes, protection, and water and some food ready to go.

Does something feel kind of "off" to you?

I'm in southern california right now, and we've been having heavy rain for days. In fact...there was a tornado here in Orange County. Yes...a tornado touched down here in sunny socal.

Yeah...I swear I slept 3 straight days and I'm hoping it was because of
the rain and cold here!!

There are few outlets for those experiencing economic pain.

The mainstream media continues to sing its song of "everything is OK," or else focuses on inane celebrity issues or other non-issues. People feeling economic pain are made to think it's their own fault somehow for not working hard enough or what have you. There is also a yawning gap of perception between the generations...older people who are retired and getting their fat pensions and/or social security live in a little self-contained bubble, and after a lifetime of secure jobs and upward mobility they are simply unable to grasp the insecurity threatening younger people. This gap creates a profound lack of compassion, understaning, and communication. The general breakdown of societies and traditional family ties adds to the problem. Those who suffer are thus turning inward, blaming themselves, and becoming profoundly depressed and lost.

There is no "legitimate" forum for discussing these very real problems. You are either branded a "right-wing teabagging kook" or a "leftie commie socialist who wants something for nothing" if you complain. The dichotomies of partisan politics (dem versus rep) are played up in the media, but to those crushed under hard times, they seem two sides of the same worthless coin. All this is creating isolation and depression. Very bad psychologically, and it prevents the kind of mass coalescence that would be the first step to solving some of these serious problems.

Good Lord, that was some excellent insight! To bad forums are about as effective for positive change as a discussion in front of the dollar store...not that I haven't had good discussion in front of places of business.

Strong, well organized local communities will influence the outcome of these times, not actions in Washington.

Maybe you guys should start by remembering, that US is not the whole world. There are areas on this planet considerably more sane..... sofar.

Though US government and corporate interests are presently on a somewhat hysterical crusade to change all of us globally into becoming moronic consumers (and whatever). A project which can be compared to medieval christianity's and nazi-germany's efforts of world domination.

While this is unlikely to succeed (american alpha-males are totally incapable of understanding anything except p****** out territories), the process can cause untold damage for a long time.

A study of the psychological mechanisms of fanatism per se can be quite instructive. Some people have so little existential harmony, that they need a soapbox oration platform and corresponding manifestations of invasive missionary activity to hide their inner insanity.

It's apparently impossible to hide my insanity so I don't even try...

Hi Smokey,

without actually suggesting, that your state of, at least personally observed, insanity is a PROOF of your sanity would be going to far, if any kind of logic is to be used.

But it definitely leaves the option open.

All cultures and individuals have their own specific fundamental characteristics, which saturates them beyond normal awareness-level. Some introspection is needed, and if successful will lead to conflicts between the socially learned and 'truth', creating a feeling of extreme weirdness.

Hang on to that, without turning it into a party-trick.

One day, I'm going to die. I can die living my life happy, sad, satisfied, worried, scared or angry.

What ever you decide to pick out of those options will be the essence of your entire life. The reason why everyone seems DEAD is because they have been fighting enemies their whole lives hoping for a better tomorrow while ignoring today. Look at the result.....

If you continue to create enemies to fight, you will never live your life. If nobody lives their lives, the world becomes full of people fighting enemies, that's not the life I want to live.

MOST of you should have died a LONG time ago, so the bottom line is that you are living on borrowed time as it is.

If you spend your time blaming others for your lack of joy in life, you will find that in the end, you are only fighting yourself.

You're GOING to get exactly the type of Life you think you currently have. So work on your attitude and stop grasping at tomorrows.

Because Xahrl Marks said "ATS and the world is dead."

My jade-colored goggles are starting to make BTS seem more appealing. Hasn't everything been said already? Quit giving reality the attention and respect it has utterly failed to earn. Reality is a narcissistic whore. Stop flattering it and it will kindly go away.

ATS = talks to you until you suddenly become aware from reduced inhibitions and inform her she got shot in the face with a whore gun

BTS = backup plan because you didn't intend to leave alone and is now looking good because your jade level is above the legal limit

Reality = Cosmic FAIL

The world = something that allows you to stand on your shoes without falling into the sun

YES! I think that many are finally beginning to feel the electricity in the air. Many are beginning to "wake up" and others on the threshold are beginning to listen more seriously to the warnings of those who have already had their eyes opened.

Here (in USA) I, and many like me have been pointing out the corporate fascist state that has been developing for years and now. Now it seems more people are seeing undeniable events that points to that very truth. We ARE witnessing the rise of the Fourth Reich.

Furthermore, it's not just politics. Spiritually people are becoming more sensitive. More are becoming aware of the increased intensity of polarity in our society. I believe that the polarities will increase as we come closer to 2012 fomenting increased war on the grander scale as well as even family and relationship breakdown on the smaller scale. The negative reaching more negatively and the positive more positively.
