Decline of the USA

Recommended Posts

In a refrain or leitmotif of my Thailand decline thread - Is the USA in a state of irreversible decline?  What's the reason?  What can be done about it?  And if there is a solution, who on earth is going to put it into action?

OR

Is everything just great?

We're tracking quite well on the mass shooting index.  To qualify you need to shoot at least four people excluding yourself of course; and for 2019 we're looking at 1.24 mass shootings per day.  So if you like guns, keep a good supply of popcorn.

There were more than 300 million prescriptions for opioids, which is more than enough to share around for every man, woman and child.

But is America in 2019 really basking in rude health?  Or sick to the guts? 

One in two gauge the moral thermometer as 'poor' and in serious decline.  https://news.gallup.com/poll/257954/americans-say-moral-values-not-good-getting-worse.aspx Some would call it value hemorrhaging, that if it isn't staunched could lead to - well no one knows where it could lead to, but when you've got a patient on the table bleeding to death, I can tell you it's not looking good if you don't get the surgical instruments out. Is the US in ICU run by madmen?

Traditionally America turned to the bible for help, but even that's been devalued by the people who used to espouse it.

Pastor Robert Jeffress , a senior minister for the Dallas Baptist Ministry was paid $5 million dollars to write a new gospel to replace all previous ones - the work was begun in a a Fort worth taco joint.  An immense task, but I managed to find a preview copy and here's a snippet: "When Jesus was asked, are you really the king of jews, he replied, I'm the king of Texas".

Is America now utterly without guidance?  How else do you explain the popularity of events like this?

NEWS from the news pipe

Man threatens to shoot up Utah children's hospital is detained.  https://fox13now.com/2019/10/23/man-arrested-for-threatening-mass-shooting-at-childrens-hospital/

The response from law enforcement was 'active shooters are becoming far too common' by Lt. Jason Hinojosa in a remarkably stupid statement.  In an off the record statement he said we can tolerate some active shooters some of the time, just not all of the time.  We're keeping an eye on when the next mass shooting occurs - shouldn't be long.

We were told things were improving regarding the segregation of black communities and schools.

There was a hopeful period where civil rights were promulgated. It was exciting, it looked like the discrimination of an entire community of people might finally be treated as the human beings they are.

However, right now, things are going backward.  For what?  No one really knows.  But these demonstrations are being defended by the POTUS, in what I can only describe as an attempt to walk back any human rights an entire community people of managed to gain in the last century.

What possible good can come from this?

About 40% of all adults in the US are obese, a very sharp increase over the last few decades.  Tax payer funded corn subsidies have bestowed a plethora of processed foods on ordinary Americans.

A guy sues an all you can eat buffet for kicking him out after eating 70 lbs of food.

And this fat fuck believes he's entitled to damages after he refused a settlement out of court.  Somehow he believes he is owed $2 million.  https://worldnewsdailyreport.com/man-kicked-out-of-all-you-can-eat-buffet-after-eating-more-than-50-lbs-of-food-sues-for-2-millions/comment-page-1/  And you know what? - he'll most likely get it. 

Welcome to the United States of America.

But the US has the the best hospitals in the world right?  It's just getting access to one is getting harder.

United States in 2013 had the highest or near-highest prevalence of obesity, car accidents, infant mortality, heart and lung disease, sexually transmitted infections, adolescent pregnancies, injuries, and homicides.[11] A 2017 survey of the healthcare systems of 11 developed countries found that the US healthcare system to be the most expensive and worst-performing in terms of health access, efficiency, and equity (from Wikipedia). 

How can America arrest this decline?  Despite the rest of the worlds developed countries who provide good examples, well it's just an impossible task apparently in the good ole USA.

But don't fuss - there is a solution to all this decline - you can see a doctor and they'll prescribe you a good dose of opioids - enough to tranquilize your elephant, and your extended family as well.  300 million prescriptions per year.

One of the main culprits Purdue Pharma - behind the drug Oxycontin, and the sociopath Sacklers have file for bankruptcy to avoid having to pay a fine $12 billion.  And after destroying the lives of countless people - does this sound familiar? - it appears they'll get away with it.

Can America's decline be blamed on God? I had the bible analyzed and it made all the sense of a drugged horse.  And what do we make of this?

Has God really abandoned America like some slumlord evading his taxes, or has he demonstrated his power in grilled cheese?  I guess we'll never know...

Of course the chance of seeing Jesus in a piece of toast can be explained by chaos theory, but try explaining that to these no-brained cacao shunters - you'd have more chance of getting a blow job from the pope.

Me thinks that God was never involved with the USA but people had moral and ethical character influenced by God and the religions.

Today, the USA is severely lacking moral and ethical character and the results are plain to see.
