Are American Robots Breaking Down

Are American Robots Breaking Down
Terrorism, chaos, fears of the future.  In the age of Obama’s new America, its robotically programmed citizens are undergoing a “fundamental transformation” a breakdown…this was a campaign promise Obama made in 2007 so don’t say you didn’t see this coming!

There is a lot in this article and it is rather lengthy, so I will give you the rest of the week to absorb it…

The sheer stress of living in a programmed Obama Muslim Communistically  transformed America is driving tens of millions to the point of illness, depression, and self-destruction. 

Consider the following trends:
Suicide has surpassed car crashes as the leading cause of injury and death for Americans.  Even more disturbing is, in the world’s greatest military, more U.S. soldiers died last year by suicide than in combat.

Fully one-third of the nation’s employees suffer chronic debilitating stress, and more than half of all “millennials” (18 to 33 year olds) experience a level of stress that keeps them awake at night, including large numbers diagnosed with depression or anxiety disorder.

Shocking new research from the federal CDC shows that one in five of all high-school-aged children in the United States has been diagnosed with ADHD, and likewise a large new study of New York City residents shows, sadly, that one in five children aged six to 12 – now have been medically diagnosed with either ADHD, anxiety, depression or bipolar disorder;

New research concludes that stress renders people susceptible to serious illness, and a growing number of studies now confirm that chronic stress plays a major role in the progression of cancer; the nation’s second-biggest killer.  The biggest killer of all, heart disease, which causes one in four deaths in the U.S., is also known to have a huge stress component.

Incredibly, 11 percent of all Americans aged 12 and older are currently taking SSRI antidepressants – those highly controversial, mood-altering psychiatric Zombie atizimdrugs with the FDA’s “suicidal” warning label have an alarming correlation with school shooters such as Sandy Hook and Columbine. 

Women are especially prone to depression, with a stunning 23 percent of all American women in their 40s and 50s – almost one in four – now taking antidepressants, according to a major study by the CDC.

Add to that the tens of millions of users of all other types of psychiatric drugs, including (just to pick one) the 6.4 million American children between 4 and 17 diagnosed with ADHD and prescribed Ritalin or similar psycho-stimulants making Zombies out of them.  Which may contribute to autism in their off-spring. Throw in the 28 percent of American adults with a drinking problem, that’s more than 60 million, plus the 22 million using illegal drugs like marijuana, cocaine, heroin, hallucinogens and inhalants, and pretty soon a picture emerges of a nation of drug-heads, with more than a hundred million dependent on one toxic substance or another – legal or illegal – to “help” them deal with the stresses and problems of life.

By the way, things are no better over the pond – and may actually be worse, according to one major study that concluded almost 40 percent of Europeans are plagued by something resembling mental illness.

What’s going on?  Why isn’t medical science – and for that matter all of our incredible scientific and technological innovations in every area of life –reducing our stress and lightening our load?  Why doesn’t the almost-magical availability of the world’s accumulated knowledge, thanks to the Internet, make us more enlightened and happy?  Why is it that, more and more of us are so stressed out as to be on a collision course with illness, misery, tragedy and death?

‘He wants people to snap’
Top radio talker Rush Limbaugh recently picked up on this normally unspoken aspect of Obama’s modus operandi“I think he wants people to snap,” opined Rush.  “I think Obama is challenging everybody’s sanity.  Obama [is] literally pushing people to snap, attacking the very sanity of the country.”

Commenting on Obama’s sudden obsession with employing every means possible to deny law-abiding Americans their constitutionally guaranteed right to keep and bear arms, Limbaugh exclaimed:  “All of this is so in our face.  Everything that people hold dear is under assault.  Deliberately making people upset!  This is not what presidents do.”

It’s not what presidents do – unless they happen to be despotic revolutionaries, in which case deliberately making people upset” is precisely what they do to accomplish their intended “fundamental transformation” that Obama promised.

Robots are designed to break down.
“Life is difficult,” wrote psychiatrist M. Scott Peck at the outset of his international best-seller, “The Road Less Traveled.”  Stress, difficulties, disappointments, accidents, disease, misfortune, cruelty, betrayal – they’re unavoidable in this life.

Yet, during eras when society and families are stable, unified and fundamentally decent and moral – as, say, America during the 1950s – the stress level for each person is minimized, or at least not compounded by a perverse society.  Conversely, when – as is the case since the 50’s until today – we have widespread family breakdown, a depraved culture that has thrown out and mocks traditional moral values, a chaotic economy and disintegrating monetary system and a power-mad government dominated by demagogues and sociopaths, the normal stresses of life are greatly multiplied.

Thus it has come to pass that America, long the hope of the world, has grown increasingly dispirited and angry, which in turn breeds anxiety, fear, confusion, hopelessness and depression.

After all, let’s face the hard facts: We just re-elected perhaps one of the worst presidents in history, someone manifestly obsessed with dismantling traditional, free-market capitalist America and transforming it into socialist despotism.  That in itself is highly stressful – at least for the maybe half the population that still understands socialism always leads to a profound loss of freedom and prosperity.  I may have over estimated that figure, it may be less than half…a lot less.

Then there are today’s relentless economic pressures…  A high unemployment rate (the actual rate is at least double that of the “official” government rate).  Foreclosures and bankruptcies, a stagnant growth rate, 11,000 new people signing up for food stamps every single day, raising the taxes for the entire middle class whose net worth is simultaneously shrinking -- ever-higher prices for food, gas and other essentials – and ‘overshadowing it all’, a galactic national debt burden, courtesy of a wildly out-of-control Socialistic Regime unrestrained by either the Constitution, Congress or common sense.

That, too, is very stressful.  Top it all off with an administration continually abusing the public for the sake of enlarging and consolidating its political power – for instance, by purposely making the so-called “sequester” cuts purposely hurt Americans, especially our active-duty soldiers, as much as possible.

Make no mistake: This sort of stress on Americans is not only intentional on the part of the Obama Regime– it is strategic. 

Remember, these people are revolutionaries (that is, engaged in “bringing about a major or fundamental change,” as Merriam-Webster puts it) and utterly committed to replacing one societal structure – America’s Constitutional Republic, limited-government, free-enterprise system – with another – a socialist, wealth-redistributionist system run by an all-powerful Communist government.  And don’t tell me that you didn’t know this was coming…you did…because Obama promised it in 2007 and you wanted more in 2012.  This is the confusion that comes about through indoctrination and robotic programming, but are the robots beginning to break down under the stress.

Such a radical change cannot be accomplished while Americans are calm, happy, content, and grateful for their blessings.  Citizens must be unhappy and stressed out.  Indeed, widespread popular discontent has always been the required fuel for Marxist and/or Nazi transformation.

Just reading a few pages into Saul Alinsky’s notorious “Rules for Radicals,” one encounters repeated confirmation that the very key to radical “change” is keeping the populace angry, encouraging their grievances, stoking their resentments and making sure they are continually upset.  That is the primary psychological dynamic of “community organizing” – and America today is led by community-organizer-in-chief Barack Obama, a long-time master practitioner and instructor in Alinsky’s neo-Marxist agitation methods.

We need to realize that Americans could not have twice elected a leader as transcendentally unworthy of the presidency as Barack Obama without first having had their minds and hearts captured by robotic programming and brainwashing through the Communist media like PMSNBC as well as our indoctrinational institutions called Schools.  Emotional manipulation, ruthless intimidation – and then being rewarded once they have “converted” – perhaps half of the American electorate has been programmed over the course of decades by a subversive school system and equally perverse “news” establishment.  Truth be told, both institutions have become full-blown abominations, occupying as they do near-sacred stations of public trust in American civilization.

Of course, at the nuclear core of the myriad assaults on traditional America is the rejection (at least by society’s elites) of God and repudiation of the Judeo-Christian values that underpin Western civilization.  This in turn has led to pervasive societal disintegration and a Pandora’s Box of almost unimaginable problems.

Unfortunately, despite our nation’s growing number of seriously troubled people, psychiatry provides little help.  The “Psycho Babel” that has evolved in our secular, mechanistic culture to see virtually all mental, emotional and spiritual problems as genetic or physiological in origin.  No longer is there any such thing as morals or sin, everything is a gray area.  Nothing is black or white nothing is moral or spiritual.  Good character, introspection, responsibility, understanding, repentance, and forgiveness, so vital to genuine healing, are now irrelevant.  Just write a prescription, and take another drug!

Since the current research fad is to conclude (as the National Institute of Mental Health puts it) that “depressive illnesses are nothing but disorders of the brain,” psychiatry has come to rely heavily on altering our brain chemistry (as if God didn’t create it correctly), as (in the case of depression) by tricking it into producing higher levels of neurotransmitters like serotonin and nor epinephrine. Oh! But I almost forgot, we are all just an accident, an evolution of chance and we have no real value. 

But this forces us to ask an obvious question: What are you talking about?  Do you really believe that the 23 percent of American women ages 40 through 59 currently on antidepressants ALL’ have defective or diseased brains?  Or, is it just possible that, rather than tens of millions of inexplicably damaged brains, much of today’s epidemic of “depression” and other “disorders” has a lot more to do with the prevalence of stress, pressure, confusion, cruelty, anger, injustice, temptation and corruption all around us – and our inability to deal with it without being infected and hurt by it?  And if that’s not enough, just maybe the brain altering drugs are adding to the brain disorder rather than curing the problem.

That being said, how does one find a way out?
There are of course, proven commonsense steps each individual can take to minimize the effects of stress.  Chuck Norris’ personal list of “12 ways to avoid depression” is as good as any available online, and encompasses everything from diet and exercise to meditation and gratitude to God.

Personal quiet time for prayer and reflection, allowing us the opportunity to seek the Creator’s will while letting go of accumulated anger, frustration, and resentment toward others.  (In other words, renewing our love for God and our neighbor.)  Uncontrolled anger in many forms has long been shown to be at the very root of many serious problems and illnesses, both physical and mental.

Pause button.  One all-important point needs to be made here: It is not the anger or the stress itself that harms us, but rather, the way we overreact emotionally to it.  And primarily, that reaction is one of resentment, either overt or subtle.

THE BOTTOM LINE: Grasping this often-overlooked fact leads directly to the bottom-line principle for successfully coping with stress, whether it’s related to money, work, health, relationships or trauma.  Learn to calmly endure the stress (or as the Bible expresses it, “trials and tribulations”) with genuine patience and faith instead of anger and frustration, and an amazing thing happens: The stress, rather than making us sick and debilitated, actually serves to make us stronger, more at peace and more whole.  And as I said anger itself isn’t necessarily the problem, the power of anger can be used as a motivator to drive one down the right path just as well as the wrong path.

‘You just be cool and calm’
“Stress” – our modern name for all the trials and tribulations the Good Lord in His infinite wisdom deems necessary for us to grow in character and faith – is not the enemy.  It is, however, the difficult but necessary part of life that tests us, proves us, and ultimately makes us better – or’ it can kill us.

Fortunately, in the loving sacrifice of his Son, not only did God make provision for the forgiveness of mankind’s sins, but He also gave us another priceless gift – the perfect example of how to deal with stress.  Even while hanging on the cross in agony, Jesus did not resent his tormentors and even asked God to forgive them.  That’s the essence of what we need to find.

In one sense, our task is simple: Since our past sins have been forgiven, and since the future is in God’s care alone, we just need to focus on discovering how to live right now, in this present moment, with faith, patient endurance, and perfect integrity.

Remember, Winston Churchill called socialism “the gospel of envy.”

After Rush Limbaugh warned his listeners that Obama wants good Americans “to snap,” he added, good-naturedly: “You just be cool and calm.  Everything’s going to be fine.  I’ll tell you when it’s not.”

Indeed, to prevent Obama and his Communist Cronies from completing their “fundamental transformation” of America, we are going to have to learn to stay cool, calm and collected – and not just on the surface, but deep down in our very souls.

Know this: If you are as upset at Obama and the maniacal left as I am– if you’re angry, full of rage, feeling hopeless, frustrated, wanting to drop out, or wanting to lash out and act violently – believe me, that’s precisely what your adversary wants.  Not only that, that’s how he wins, because when you’re upset and angry and overreacting – you become stupid.  That’s what’s wrong with the Republican Party.  Its principles are magnificent (read the 2012 platform), but most of its leaders are intimidated by the ruthless Obama regime and the blatantly biased and abusive “Sodastream media.”  Thus, in their reactive, intimidated state of mind, they become ineffective, cowardly, and contemptible (with a few notable exceptions, for which I am very grateful).

This is true not just of politicians, but all of us: No matter how smart, moral and right-thinking we might otherwise be, when we’re just angry and upset we do not possess God’s grace, wisdom, courage and creative genius guiding our steps, and thus we are no match for the satanic evil rising in America.

But if Americans would discover grace under pressure, if enough of us found strength and resolve that were rooted, not in rage, but in righteousness and love of God and our neighbor, then nothing, and I do mean nothing, could stop us.  Having regained our lost innocence, we would likewise see our beloved country restored to the noble land it once was.

“My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations; Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience.  But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing,” James 1: 2-4 KJV.

Now don’t confuse the absence of rage and uncontrolled anger with passivism.  Just because we shouldn’t strike out in abusive anger doesn’t mean that we shouldn’t stand firm in truth and righteousness.  Jesus Christ told his disciples to get themselves a sword even if they had to sell their clothes.  If push comes to shove, one must defend oneself and the truth of God and country.  

Researching and writing this article has been a learning experience for me, I hope it has been of some help to you as well…
