Posted on 06/10/2011 2:22:35 AM PDT by GiovannaNicoletta
As the U.S. economy collapses, the thin veneer of civilization that we all take for granted is going to begin to disappear. In fact, there are already an increasing number of signs that the collapse of society is accelerating. In cities such as Chicago, roving packs of young people are "mob robbing" local businesses, randomly assaulting tourists and shoppers and are even pulling people out of vehicles. This isn't just happening in the "bad areas" anymore. Over the past couple of months this type of crime has been common in some of the wealthiest areas of Chicago. In fact, many Chicago residents are now referring to "the Magnificent Mile" as "the Mug Mile". But it isn't just in Chicago that this is happening. During this past Memorial Day weekend, cities all over the United States experienced a stunning wave of mass violence. We are supposed to be an "example" for the rest of the world, but as our economic wealth crumbles we are witnessing the collapse of society all around us. So what is going to happen when the economy gets even worse?

We Get what we Deserve,How is That Hopey Changey thing working for you?
The thing is 70% of the people Still LOVE OBAMA!
You want a Sign of decay Just try Driving the Speed Limit on the Highway and Experience the love of your fellow Human Beings!
Each one of us, individually, should make an effort to be gentle, kind and friendly to those people who inhabit our space; however fleeting.
As a retiree, with no time pressure, I step back from the check out lanes or yeild to merging cars on the highway. Makes me feel better - and I hope the gesture makes some stranger feel good.
At airports and bus stations - instead of a cell phone - I chat with other passengers. It only takes a genuine smile to begin a conversation and to learn how each human being has a life story and a life lesson.
Of course, my family claims I’m just a senile lunatic;)

This happens when people Like Holder choose not to up hold the rule of law!
” The thing is 70% of the people Still LOVE OBAMA! “
This is the Honest-to-Goodness truth —
My O-bot neighbor called me yesterday and informed me that some Right-Wing-Cabal is using the Secret Service to hold Mooshell and the kids (and the dog, for all I know) hostage to force Zero to do stupid things....
If I hadn’t long-since given up on trying to inject any facts or truth into these ‘conversations’, I might have pointed out that ‘conspiracy theories’ are the last-gasp of denial....
You sound Like a Decent Citizen to me,Im 61 and I try my best to do the same things you do,when you talk to people one to one you realize we all have similar feelings and desires,we love our families and want the Best for them and we really dont mean Hrm to anyone. I think there is a Wide spread feeling of Loss of Control that Frustrates people and causes them to act in bad ways and I think in Most cases they regret afterward their actions.
Keep the Faith,God Bless the USA
Only certain states and cities in the US allow people to be armed anymore.
Gun free zone = free crime zone.
I think I met you in our grocery store’s parking lot.
I went to retrieve a run-away sharping cart and you pulled up beside me, rolled down your window and told me, You’re a good girl!
I thought you were a senile lunatic. ;-)
Ouch! Your neighbor has slipped the surly bonds of earth, and touched the face of crazy.
” Ouch! Your neighbor has slipped the surly bonds of earth, and touched the face of crazy. “
Since my neighbor has never, to my knowledge, had an original thought in her life, I find that she is a fairly reliable barometer of things that are going around in the dank underworld of the O-bot community...
Talking with her is much easier on my stomach lining than monitoring DU and KOS.....
Everything is legal here.
However, once in a while a person shows up who was raised with values, principles, and a kind heart. I know. I was at the checkout in a supermarket recently and upon opening my purse saw that I had left my wallet at home. I started to ask the checkout girl to hold my things when the man behind me offered to pay! Imagine! It was only a few things amounting to about $19.00 and I said "no, but thanks" two times. He kept insisting and I ended up getting my items for free because of his kindness. There is some hope. Now, I am prepared to do the same if I have the chance, but have made it a point to help others in any way whenever possible. God bless people like that fellow. He showed me a true "Pass it Forward" example.
My wife and I were talking about this the other day.
Things are slipping, and it is getting worse. Children raised by the state don’t turn out that well.
“Of course, my family claims Im just a senile lunatic;)”
I think that you are a wise and humble Christian. Am I right?
I also know that you are correct. People are very hungry for common decency and kindness and want to feel a connection to others. The vast majority of the time, they respond very positively to genuine kindness and consideration.
Sure Holder does! Black mob, ignored. Hispanic gang ‘picking on’ black gang in LA? HUNT THEM DOWN!!! (no joke, Justice Dept hunted down hispanic gangs for threatening a black gang)
I always assumed my Granny was just being ‘racist’ when she said if blacks ever got in an overwhelming position of power that no amount of good will would change the revenge. It seems she was right in this bunch we got in office.
