15 Examples That Show Many Americans Have Become So Desperate That They Will Do Just About Anything For Money

The Economic Collapse

More Americans than ever are desperate for money and many of them will do just about anything to get it. The crumbling U.S. economy has pushed millions of ordinary Americans to the brink of utter desperation. When it comes time to choose between being able to survive or breaking the law, many people are choosing to break the law. These days it seems like Americans will do just about anything for money. All over the country, there are areas where just about anything that is not bolted down is being stolen. A lot of people have resorted to making money however they can - selling drugs, selling their bodies, shoplifting, invading homes, taking bribes ........

A 59 year old man from North Carolina named Richard James Verone was so desperate for money that he actually robbed a bank and got caught on purpose so that he could be put in prison and be given free health care. One day Verone walked into an RBC Bank in North Carolina, handed a clerk a note demanding exactly one dollar and sat down and waited for the police to arrive and arrest him. Verone has a growth on his chest and two ruptured disks but he does not have any health insurance. He is hoping that in prison he will get the medical treatment that he needs. As society continues to unravel, prison is going to look like an appealing option for more and more people. At least in prison you get fed, you have a roof over your head and they will take care of your medical needs. For a whole lot of Americans, that would be a major step up.

America is changing. The safe, secure environment that we all used to take for granted is dying. The number of truly desperate people rises by the day, and many of those desperate people are willing to do just about anything for money. The United States used to have a thriving middle class, but our economic system has been so manipulated over the decades that now almost all of the economic rewards go to the very top of the food chain. 25 years ago, the wealthiest 12 percent of all Americans controlled 33 percent of all the wealth. Today, the wealthiest 1 percent of all Americans control 40 percent of all the wealth.

  2. Yeah, as if just the prez for the last 3 years is to blame for where we are as a nation? We've been digging this hole for 30 years.

    Whether an individual, a family, a company or a nation. If you spend more than you make. If you import more than you export . . . eventually the tab comes due. America simply cannot pay off our tab, we import WAY more than we export now. We outsourced everything.

    Its not the end of the world, its just a big economic/political change playing out. History is full of them, and the people in the former empires generally come out fine, things just change.

  3. Wishful thinking 5:19. Never in modern history has a people had such a radical change in lifetime as what is coming. Americans are going from the top of the food chain to sharing the bottom.

    Perhaps you are thinking about how the people of the USSR, circa 1989-1990 dealt with their collapse and eventually recovered? They were much more capable of doing that than are Americans.

    The banksters have kept us on life support because we are doing their bidding; ie protecting the world's fiat currencies and the reserve currency (ours) via wars and aggressions.

    Very few know that we are doing 'the usual' in Libya right now. They, like Saddam, wanted to try their hand at currencies not linked to the fiat dollar. They had to be crushed for that. It is all about what it is always about; money and social control.

  4. Don't forget the worst of the worst Goldman Sachs role in the illegal invasion. Gadhafi invested billions with them. Then, conveniently, when we decided to invade/bomb them, GS got to keep all the funds.

    You have to have it to the banksters. They really know how to turn a profit. Since all important politicians are bought, it really isn't too hard for them.

  5. It appears the worst is yet to come. We can either choose to prepare or do nothing. I choose to prepare. http://www.collapsenet.com/affiliate/idevaffiliate.php?id=416&url=328

  8. desperate people do desperate things. at present things aren't desperate enough for more radical solutions to be viewed as acceptable by the masses. give it time. what kind of conditions would exist to make a world currency, world oversight by a select panel, a mark to buy and sell, acceptable. foundation in place, public isn't yet ready but desperation changes many things. desperate times coming, and because of fear-of death, of poverty of many things, people will do evils that were formally uncommon to them, and accept radical solutions. what's that saying...give us a man who can solve the worlds problems, and be he god or devil we will follow him. not strange that fairly rich(and we are compared to most of the world) would need to be made as desperate as those most everywhere else, as the, doing wells, see and have no reason to climb onboard world order with it's solutions as what they have now works fine. and to boot, as the order finalizes, for appearances, for peace, can't have a block of fairly rich in comparison to the majority who aren't. they're brought up, we're lowered, level playing field. save your souls, one might rob a bank to live a few more years, stockpile food and survive riots, but the appointment with death remains still. why do wrong to live today, yet die anyway someday. what kind of life is that

  10. Anon Aug 23rd 5.32 You are wrong. try the Russian Revolution if you want to see massive
    change in a society within a lifetime. try China
    Plenty of societies undergo massive changes. Look at England which was bankrupt after WWII or any European country for that matter. If you want to blame someone for this mess. Try Reagan, Prime Minister Thatcher who were so quick to deregulate the banks etc so that the foxes now guarded the chickens. they sold off all government agencies to private industry which ran them all into the ground while providing lousy service and no competition so they could hike the prices and export jobs to the Third World.They stepped on unions leaving the middle class person with no protection from crooked/criminal employers and, along with moving jobs out of the countries they forced wages down. This caused stagnation of income for the last 30 years. Then the big boys decided it wasn't enough to make millions in profit they wanted billions so the USA real estate/insurance and banking industry got into junk mortgages which left them and the rest of the world holding the bag financially while they got no punishment and swanned away on their private jets/yachets laughing at the poor stupid taxpapers.

  11. Thank you for the sensible critique. Me & my neighbor were just preparing to do some research about
    this. We got a grab a book from our area library but
    I think I learned more clear from this post.
    I am very glad to see such magnificent info being shared freely out
    there.

  12. Once you are sure of the diet you are looking for,
    you are half way there; you can then narrow it down. That is all you need to start
    a new habit and to start burning off calories.
    These are a few questions that I recommend
    you ask yourself before even starting.
