16 Examples That Show The United States Has Become A Seriously Messed Up Country

Inside My Head By Andrew MasonIn recent years, it has been quite common to hear our politicians and top media personalities talk about the need for America to use military force to impose “our values” on the rest of the world.  But what “values” could they possibly be talking about?  The truth is that we don’t have any “values” worth sharing with anyone at this point.  America has become a festering cesspool of garbage and filth, and it is getting worse with each passing day.  As a nation, we need to humble ourselves and turn away from our wicked deeds and rediscover the values that once made this country great.  But instead, we seem to have developed a thirst for evil that can never be satisfied.  The entire nation seems to be slowly going insane, and not that many people are even alarmed by this.  I hope that you will share this article with others, because the American people desperately need a giant wake up call.  The following are 16 examples that show that the United States has become a seriously messed up country…

#1 The American flag is starting to be banned in schools all over the nation, and federal courts are backing them up on this

Last week in Dariano v. Morgan Hill Unified School Dist., the 9th Circuit ruled that a public school can actually ban the American flag. Making matters worse, the decision allows the school to ban the American flag and still allow students to display flags of other countries.

#2 Speaking of our courts, many of them appear to have literally gone insane.  Just check out what the highest court in Massachusetts recently ruled

Massachusetts’ highest court has ruled that a man accused of secretly snapping photos up a woman’s skirt on an MBTA train did not break the law.

The State Supreme Judicial Court on Wednesday dismissed charges against Michael Robertson of Andover, who was arrested in August 2010 by transit police.

Officers had set up a sting on the Green Line after getting reports that Robertson was using his cellphone to take photos and video up female rider’s skirts and dresses.

#3 Parents are starting to lose the natural affection that they should have for their children.  For example, a pregnant mother that already had three children recently tried to kill them all by driving her minivan into the ocean

“The two in the back seat was crying, with their arms out saying ‘Our mommy’s trying to kill us, please help,’” said Tesseneer.

A bystander’s video of the rescue shows a rescuer carrying two children away from the sinking van when the children tell them there was another child inside.

“The kids are like, ‘No there’s a baby. There’s a baby,’” Tesseneer said. “She (the mother) wouldn’t say a word. She didn’t tell us nothing about a baby.”

The men are seen on video frantically trying to get to the small child through the hatchback and the driver’s side door.

#4 In the old days, some people would cruelly abandon their pets in the woods, but now this is actually happening to children

A Florida couple was arrested for allegedly abandoning their three young children in the woods, authorities said.

Michael and Sarah Butcher, both 30, were first arrested Friday after illegally parking their red truck in a private RV park in Punta Gorda.

Cops later found crystal meth in their car’s glove compartment, along with a syringe and a burnt spoon, according to the arrest report.

After the pair was taken to jail –- where they repeatedly claimed to be brother and sister –- the police received a call that three children were found walking in the woods, “very dirty, hungry, and cold,” according to a police report.

#5 Teenagers in America just continue to become even more cruel.  Perhaps we should rethink the way that we are raising our children…

Four teenagers are accused of carving a swastika into the forehead of a 16-year-old boy.

The Oregonian reports that Jenna Montgomery, 15, Jess Taylor, 17, Blue Kalmbach, 15, and a 14-year-old boy attacked the boy in a shed, shooting him with a BB gun and hitting him with a crow bar, on top of carving a swastika into his forehead.

#6 The FDA is actually considering making it legal for doctors and scientists to create “three parent babies” in the United States.

#7 Our financial system appears to be more corrupt than it ever has been before.  And yet nobody ever seems to go to prison

In a nearly $13 billion settlement with the U.S. Justice Department in November 2013, JPMorganChase admitted that it, along with every other large U.S. bank, had engaged in mortgage fraud as a routine business practice, sowing the seeds of the mortgage meltdown. JPMorgan and other megabanks have now been caught in over a dozen major frauds, including LIBOR-rigging and bid-rigging; yet no prominent banker has gone to jail.

#8 Sexual perversion of all types is running rampant in America.  Just consider what one Florida man recently did with a dog

Police have arrested a Tampa man after his neighbors reported that he was having sex with a dog.

According to Tampa Police, officers were flagged down by the man’s neighbors on N. Marks Street Tuesday afternoon.

“When officers arrived on scene, they were greeted by a small crowd of residents who were disturbed by their neighbor’s activity with the dog,” a police spokeswoman explained. “Several of the witnesses stated that they yelled at the suspect to stop, but he ignored their commands.”

#9 An all-time high 59 percent of all Americans believe that the traditional definition of marriage needs to be changed.

#10 The popularity of “throuples” has surged so much that a new dating website has been launched that will cater to them specifically.

#11 Authorities around the nation are alarmed at the rise in occult-inspired crimes that appears to be happening.  Most of you have probably heard about “the Craigslist Killer” by now…

A woman in Pennsylvania who has been charged with murder for killing  a man she met on Craigslist has told reporters that she has committed over 20 murders as part of a satanic cult.

“When I hit 22 [murders], I stopped counting,” 19-year-old Miranda Barbour told the Daily Item on Saturday.

#12 The United States already has the highest rate of divorce in the entire world, and now the divorce rate is on the rise again.  Some pundits are blaming the “improving economy” for this.

#13 In America today, there are 60 million people that abuse alcohol and there are 22 million people that use illegal drugs.

#14 As I wrote about recently, there are 747,408 registered sex offendersin the U.S. according to the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children.  That number only includes the ones that have been caught and convicted.

#15 Planned Parenthood has produced a video “that promotes bondage and sadomasochism” to teens…

Planned Parenthood of Northern New England (PPNNE)–which received more than $2.75 million in government funding in 2012–has produced and posted online a video specifically aimed at teenagers that promotes bondage and sadomasochism (BDSM) and proposes “rules” to follow when engaging in these activities.

“People sometimes think that those who practice BDSM are emotionally scarred or were once abused—not true, it’s a total myth,” the host of the video, Laci Green, informs its intended audience of teens.

“BDSM relies upon and creates trust,” she says.

By the way, the U.S. government gives hundreds of millions of dollars to Planned Parenthood each year.

#16 Speaking of Planned Parenthood, more than 56 million American babies have been slaughtered in this country since Roe v. Wade was decided in 1973.

What should be done to a nation that does such a thing?

Ya right! I have never heard ANYONE say that. I would like to see one quote from a politician saying that.

    All the rest is either not new, or not unique to the USA. It's like the OP has been hidden undr a rock for the last 100 years.

  #1  Clearly the courts were correct  on this.  It was a school sanction event .  The students were creating a violent atmosphere. 

#2 again the court was correct in the reading of the law.  According to state law no such presumption of privacy exists on public conveyance.

#3.   That has been going on for thousands of years nothing new.

#4.  See # 3

#5.   Not even a good example what about the murders teen on teen?

#6.  The designer baby argument= Fail Plus what is wrong with human cloning?

#7.  Finally a real issue. 

#8  ROFL! 

#9  That goes with out saying as the "traditional" is selling the daughters for profit.

#10  Makes financial and baby sitting sense.

#11   Always been with us except now we catch them

#12  Improving economy mean lawyers are affordable.

#13    So?  That is no point.

#14  Sex offender really and 1% of those are of any danger.  A system gone mad.  A wizz in the woods while hiking is a crime?  (it is in some states)

#15  If you don't like it don't do it.  Not to my taste but to others it's fun.

#16   Of course it's abortion.   That is billions of dollarsd not going to welfare payments.  Abortion needs to be free and on dmand we have millions unemployed we don't need overpopulation.

Watch the actual video:

Then try repeating after me, with a straight face:

"Oh woe is me.  This video is a sign that the whole of the USA has become messed up."

Turn Off That Camera! Idaho Gov Signs Tough 'Ag-Gag' Into Law

Ag Gag Bills Target Hidden Cameras

Idaho Governor C.L. "Butch" Otter has signed the latest so-called "Ag Gag" bill, making the state the seventh in the nation to criminalize hidden camera recording inside farm facilities – a tactic used by animal rights groups to expose alleged animal abuse and cruelty.

"We're tickled," Senator Jim Patrick, one of the bills' sponsors, told ABC News Friday afternoon, calling the law "enforceable and constitutional." "It's a relief to have it done and settled," he said.

The law will put anyone convicted of recording hidden camera video inside an agriculture operation in jail for a year. There is also a $5000 fine.

In debating the bill, legislators cited undercover footage taken at Bettencourt Dairies that aired last year on ABC News "Nightline" – showing horrific abuse of cows. An activist working for the group Mercy for Animals recorded brutal abuse of cows in 2012, including the beating and shocking of the animals. The video was turned over to local law enforcement and criminal charges were brought against three employees at the facility. One pleaded guilty to misdemeanor animal cruelty.

Patrick said when things turned "personal" against owner Luis Bettencourt, including death threats against him and his family, it created fear in all Idaho farmers, which ultimately led to the controversial bill.

"There wouldn't have been much pressure to do anything if it wasn't for the fact that they were going after him personally," Patrick said.

The animal rights group Mercy for Animals, which has produced several undercover videos, has been extremely critical of the "Ag Gag" bill in Idaho as well as similar legislation in other states. Today, the group said they believed Gov. Otter bowed to pressure from "corporate factory farming interests."

"Mercy For Animals is exploring all legal avenues to overturn this dangerous, unconstitutional, and un-American law," said Nathan Runkle, the group's executive director. "This is a sad day for animals, consumers, the constitution, and the media… Idaho's flawed and misdirected new law will now throw shut the doors to industrial factory farms and allow animal abuse, environmental violations, and food contamination to flourish undetected, unchallenged, and unaddressed."

Pleas to the governor to veto the bill poured in from activist groups and notable public figures alike, including former Price Is Right host Bob Barker and the CEO of Chobani, Hamdi Ulukya. Uluka tweeted his opposition to the bill: "As someone who grew up on a farm, I believe how we treat animals is a moral imperative."

The nationwide battle over "Ag Gag" legislation has reached a fever pitch in recent months.

In addition to Idaho, three states have already considered some form of "ag-gag" legislation in 2014; lawmakers in Arizona, New Hampshire and Indiana introduced bills this year. Eleven other states introduced bills in 2013, but not a single bill passed that year.

There are laws on the books in six states, including Iowa, where it is a crime to get hired at a farm under false pretenses. That law passed in 2012, just a few months after an ABC News report that featured undercover video showing inhumane and unsanitary conditions at a large egg factory.

Undercover activists have vowed to continue reporting on conditions inside American farms, despite the push to keep them out. The activist who documented the abuse of cows at Bettencourt Dairies told ABC News last year the public needs these videos more than ever.

"Most members of the public don't understand what we're doing. They think we're just running around filming things and throwing it up on YouTube," he said. "These are criminal investigations."

Idaho Senator Jim Patrick says the new law brings relief to farmers around the state.

"There are so many things that these groups don't like. We feel like any one of us could be a target," he said.
