Global unrest is spreading everywhere, but America.
People are taking to the streets to demonstrate their outrage over the economy except in America.
Here is a list of countries who are experiencing riots and public displays of outrage over the economy and their "leaders":
Great Britain - General Discontent & Police Aggression
Israel - Rise in the Cost of Living
Spain - Gov't. Austerity Programs, Unemployment, & Bad Economic Conditions
Greece - Gov't. Austerity Programs, Accepting Bail Out Money, & Bad Economic Conditions
Portugal - Gov't. Austerity Programs, Gov't. Spending Cuts, & Bad Economic Conditions
The Philippines - Demands for Higher Wages & Rising Fuel Costs
China - Inflation & Rising Fuel Costs
Syria - Protesting the Rule of President Bashar al-Assad
All America seems to do is watch T.V. and go about their monotonous lives. Yawn.
I guess that Fluoride is working! Just keep them entertained....
America is experiencing all the woes that these countries are protesting over. We have high fuel costs, a bad economy, low wages, gov't. spending
cuts, inflation, gov't. austerity programs, rise in cost of living, police brutality, and would like to see most of our "leaders" and
representatives thrown out, so why are we remaining complacent?
I just don't get it. What are we afraid of? Are we that lazy? Do we really believe that things will correct themselves?
What is your definition of a "TSHF" scenario? Everyone talks about this happening and what they'll do when it does, but isn't it happening now?
Why aren't we becoming more active in the streets? I'm more than willing to partake in some protesting, but I'd look pretty silly out there all by
my lonesome. Everyone I know is going about their daily lives as if nothing is wrong. All they seem to want to do is voice their worries and complain
to their friends, neighbors, and relatives as if this is going to solve anything.
Folks, the fan is turning brown right now and we aren't doing anything except watching and commenting on it as though it's the latest blockbuster to
hit the theaters. We're missing our chance to make some real change. We've written to our politicians and voiced our concerns on ATS, but that's
all I'm seeing. Is this really as good as it's going to get? What happened to the people who weren't afraid to protest in the 1960s? Are they all
just a bunch of yuppies now who have raised a bunch of push-overs?
Is anyone else wondering why American citizens are doing nothing?
What's your opinion of a SHTF scenario?
Are we really "all talk and no action"?
