I came across this article earlier and thought to myself,if Americans are saying that its getting worse then why are they not trying to do something about it. SO its not like everyone is blind and doesnt realize what is going on. If they notice that their financial health is getting worse then wouldnt you think that more people would wake up already and get with the program? Instead,most just continue to sit around watching everything gradually getting worse with no reason to believe that it will ever get any better and seem to be content with it. Instead they could find out what the problems are and collectively take a stand. If the percentage is accurate there would be plenty enough people to try and make a difference...

A recently released report of the General Social Survey, conducted by NORC at the University of Chicago, shows that for the first time since 1972, more Americans say that their financial situation has gotten worse in recent years rather than better. Understandably, also for the first time since 1972, the percentage of Americans saying that they are "not at all" satisfied with their financial situation (31.5%) notably exceeds those saying they are "pretty well" satisfied (23.4%).

The 2010 data also indicate that Americans are more insecure about employment. A record percentage (16.4%) thought that it was "very likely" or "fairly likely" that they would lose their job or be laid off. Likewise, only slightly more than half (52.2%) thought it "not at all likely" that they would lose their job or be laid off, the lowest percentage ever recorded by the GSS by a substantial margin. The percentage of those who thought their standard of living was "much better" or "somewhat better" than their parents declined.

In a second report released simultaneously, American "happiness" took a hit. Only 28.8%, the lowest percentage since 1972, said they were "very happy" while the "not too happy" group, at 14.2%, was the highest since 1973. Overall, however, 85.8% of Americans report to being "very happy" or "pretty happy".

I think it's beacuse Americans in general have been conditioned to believe that the Government will solve their problems.

Then when it can't they don't where the heck to start!

The sheeples' TVs haven't been shut down yet...
The sheeples' food prices haven't skyrocketed yet...
The sheeples' gas prices haven't skyrocketed yet... (though they're getting there)

Unfortunately, by the time the sheeples of the world realize they need to act, it will be too late, and they'll be too soft from all the TV, fa(s)tfood, and driving.

mind control.. it is this obvious.

why did 5,000 pow's allow 300 guards to imprison them. if all the prisoners would have stormed at once, sure like 600 would be shot, and sure the majority could over run the guards and free themselves becuase nobody wants to be the one shot, ESPECIALLY if they knew someone else would go free off of their death..

humans have had the sacrifice mindset lobotimized. insidiously, unnoticed, borderline stealth/subliminal through pavlovian techniques in PUBLIC SCHOOL!!
