On a good note Obama's lead on McCain is growing! But will there be elections? Now America and the worlds growing violence due to conditions beyond our control!
Barack Obama is continuing to extend his lead over John McCain in a head-to-head matchup nationwide, a new CNN poll of polls indicates. check out the latest polls Just wait until they have face to face debates!
Now let's talk about reality as I don't even believe there will be elections in this Democratic facade as worsening conditions continue to increase life's difficulties and the growing unrest and violence is beyond our control, just beginning ,and will get much worse!
First historically America may be the most violent country in the world when compared to other industrialized nations. violence is deeply rooted in American society, and has become woven into the fabric of American lifestyle. violence invades our intimate relationships, our schools, and our work environments.
Too many people consider violence an acceptable strategy for conflict resolution, exerting power and control, obtaining possessions, and satisfying emotional desires. Violence is even entertainment, glamorized in the behavior of both real and fantasy hero's. Crime and violence have been a part of American society since America was founded. The publics awareness of crime, violence, domestic abuse, child abuse, and gangs has increased dramatically. The media plays an important role in public awareness of violence. We are bombarded daily with reports on television, radio, newspapers, and the Internet with the fact that we are all vulnerable to acts of violence.
Crime increased dramatically between 1960 and 1975, showing an increase of 232 percent. During these years the murder rate increased 50 percent.. During the 1980's and 1990s public awareness of domestic violence and child abuse increased. During the 1990's there were school shooting sprees in Colorado, Mississippi, Georgia, Arkansas, Kentucky and Oregon that brought violence in schools to the forefront of public awareness. In late 1999 a Texas church rally was the scene of another tragic shooting. Not only did our schools start feeling unsafe, but even our most sacred place, the church became unsafe.
The increase of violence, and our awareness of violence, changes the way we live. Fear of violence, crime, and gangs can make us feel like prisoners in our own homes. Unsafe feeling neighborhoods can make us feel unsafe about going out at night. In some neighborhoods, children are killed in drive by shootings at schools, on the streets, in neighborhoods, in playgrounds and even in their own homes. There are many people, both adults and children, that carry guns, knives and chemical sprays for protection. violence in America
Despite the FBI being happy saying violent crime is falling after rising for two years. most people know this is ridiculous
It is growing daily as life for Americans gets more difficult daily and the conditions that lead to increased violence and insurrection are just beginning and worsening daily. Just a few interesting links if you are curious! I was going to show you a link to musicians worrying about getting killed in the big easy but you know how violent New Orleans has become along with Boston, New York City, Chicago, Washington DC, and it seems every hub in America has become both because of citizens and increasing stress and an overzealous Public Police force using whatever force they want necessary or not! Just a few reasons and examples why this violence is just beginning and will get much worse necessitating us being controlled even further.
Bernanke is equally as asinine! Despite a recent spike in the nation's unemployment rate, the danger that the economy has fallen into a "substantial downturn" appears to have waned, Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke said Monday. Risk of major downturn 'diminished, look at this hogwash
* Fuel to heat your home and drive your car is going up every single day adding further to the daily stress of not just trying to heat your home and drive to work but just being able to afford the food you want!
* While this entire mess in our society is just beginning and authorities are declaring victory Americans are changing how they shop to combat high food prices. iReporters say they're planning trips to the grocery store with military precision -- arming themselves with coupons and making sure they're in the right shoppers' clubs to get the best deals. Others are looking even closer to home: buying in bulk from the local dairy on behalf of co-workers or just growing food in their yard. Eric Hubbard of Knoxville, Tennessee, says he pays about twice as much for food as he did in 2007. "Add to this the difference in the cost of gas," Hubbard says, "and it becomes apparent the problem that American families are facing." eating and surviving are just begging to become a way of life
The elderly are taking a big hit as High prices for gas and food have hit the Meals on Wheels program from two directions as it runs a financial deficit and loses the volunteers who deliver food to vulnerable seniors. In Albuquerque the program is tightening its own belt even as recipients tighten theirs. Meals on Wheels gets low-cost and sometimes even free warm food to housebound seniors. Often it's the seniors' only contact with the outside world. But now, that link is in danger. economic double whammy hits Elderly and meals on wheels
Meanwhile The number of laid-off workers filing for first-time unemployment benefits jumped last week, the government said Thursday, as lawmakers prepare to vote on a bill to extend unemployment assistance. lawmakers debate jobless extension yeah
This is happening around the world and it is just beginning and will get much worse! Auto plants in Spain were paralyzed and Portugal's main airport banned planes from refueling Wednesday as a third day of strikes by thousands of truckers caused heightened chaos and shortages. Truckers in Thailand also threatened to strike next week while their counterparts in South Korea plan to stop work on Friday, as the outrage over soaring fuel prices intensified around the world. Tens of thousands of truck drivers launched stoppages in France, Portugal and Spain on Monday to demand government help to cope with the rising price of fuel caused by rocketing oil prices, which last week reached almost 140 dollars a barrel.
The protests have paralyzed roads, causing huge tailbacks, notably on the French-Spanish border and around major Spanish cities, and left supermarkets short of fresh produce and some petrol stations without supplies. Two strikers were run over by vehicles and killed at picket lines on Tuesday. The Spanish auto plants of Seat, Nissan, Renault, PSA Peugeot Citroen and Mercedes Benz said they had cut or halted production as the strike left them short of parts. In Belgium, the Volvo and Audi auto plants said they would be forced to close from Thursday due to the strike in Spain. In Portugal, the strike hit air transport as fuel shortages forced authorities at Lisbon airport to ban planes from refueling, except those on high priority flights. "We cannot refuel any planes, except those on urgent, military or state flights," a spokesman for the airport authority, Rui Oliveira, told Lusa news agency. The European Commission on Wednesday called on EU nations to take targeted action to help those most vulnerable deal with high oil prices. Global protests escalate
* This is just getting started and like the rest of the situations in the world will not be quelled by anyone despite the rhetoric. Conditions will worsen around the world not just here. Chaos will be the order of the day! Conditions associated with a declining situation creating violence and unrest will worse despite what the Feds or Bernanke or anyone else thinks or regardless of what happens this fall. Again I say don't sweat it just hunker down and be prepared!
