Well it’s fair to say that the Amazing George Carlin who was an American, TOTALLY understood his fellow Americans and culture very well indeed. Very hard to argue with George on his thoughts on his people. The American people. So this is an American, defining the people and culture he lived in and with…. very well indeed. Sadly he died years ago. This message be from the grave
[Reblogging from April 2014] THIS IS THE STORY SOME OF US SEEN A DECADE+ AGO AND MORE LOOKING BACK -America is about to fall, and if you can’t see it now, look back at a lot of information below we tried to give our American friends. Many Empires, if not all have fallen, America is about to enter Civil War, then Martial law. We tried, we failed. One thing I am learning fast as a blogger (Not a columnist) is that there are a million people trying to be heard and noticed, now this isn’t a bad thing, it’s why we blog right?, well sadly there are too many voices in order to hear the correct voices. People said we were America haters, sadly these people are about to meet hell, and it’s very sad. America is using Trump to divide a nation, a story Scotland will be one day soon too. But we have a 2nd chance. America is out of all hope😦 America, is falling hard.Did this a few years back, well, WE did this. All we tried to do was inform and help. Fear was the 1st emotion, now look, racial division is about to cause a civil war, then martial law. WE can say ‘We tried.

Research has shown me this, words from Americans have shown me this. Now before I start, I have American friends, people I have known OVER 10/15 years, I would love to visit the USA, most American’s I know will laugh at this but turn around and say it’s true. I made none of the images, none of the video’s and didn’t do the poll below. THIS WAS ALL DONE BY/FOR AMERICAN PEOPLE! Above Top Secret is a site I have been going on for 11 years now. I watch the video’s as they come in. Now REMEMBER these are American video’s, about America, done by Americans. I always ask questions like this https://shaunynews.com/2015/03/21/usa-wake-up-to-your-2nd-world-racist-religiously-stupid-world/ I have said many times American’s as a people are very behind the news, I get abuse every other day but for every ONE American to give me abuse I have 10 who see it as I do. So to prove my point that AMERICAN’S SEE AMERICA AS I DO, here are some who agree! Now before the usual people start, this site is the biggest ON EARTH. Most users are American and it caters for American’s more or less. So here I am SHARING what I hear from inside the US of A, from it’s people. I didn’t make this up, I am sharing what switched on, clever American’s can see and feel. And I say well done to all you open minded people. EVERYTHING ASIDE. We must laugh at ourselves. My country had a chance to vote itself out of Britain and blew it 45/55 😀 So we all have idiots ok

LETS EXAMINE IN MORE DETAIL! This is from http://www.dailydot.com/opinion/dumb-things-30-percent-america-believes/
1) That gay people can choose to become straight.
Although public opinion on matters of homosexuality has grown steadily more progressive, the pace remains a bit glacial. In 2012, a Pew poll found that 35 percent of respondents considered sexual orientation a lifestyle choice. Just last week, Texas Gov. Rick Perry likened homosexuality to alcholism, suggesting that while people may have “genetic coding,” it’s still boils down to personal desire. He later said he “stepped right in it” with the comparison. That’s putting it mildly.
2) That 9/11 didn’t happen in 2001.
In 2006, the Washington Post ran the results of a questionnaire that indicated 30 percent of Americans didn’t know what year 9/11 took place—though 95 percent could correctly identify the month and day. Not bad, considering the phrase “9/11” denotes exactly that information. Now remember the question “WHEN WAS 9/11”
3) That their jobs really matter.
4) That the Bible is the literal word of God.
Yes, some three in 10 Americans believe there’s a book so true that God himself could not write it, and instead relied on prophets to be his (infallible?) secretaries—according to Gallup, anyway. Almost half the country, meanwhile, thinks the Bible is merely “inspired” by the word of God, and not necessarily to be taken at face value.
5) That they aren’t the product of evolution.
“I didn’t come from no monkey!” —people with an inexplicable prejudice against monkeys, or about 33 percent of the U.S., according to Pew Research.
6) That medical care is too expensive to seek out.
The cost of getting well in the U.S. is certainly outrageous, but the 30 percent of citizens who prefer to “walk it off” are probably just forestalling even more punishing health-related debt.
7) That the time has come for armed revolution.
You know those people who seem to buy more guns than they could possibly need? Well, it seems they’re stockpiling: Fairleigh Dickinson University’s PublicMind last year had some 29 percent of poll respondents saying that a bloody fight against the U.S. government “isn’t just imminent but imperative.” That’ll be fun.
8) That global warming is mainly caused by “natural changes in the environment.”
In other words, it causes itself. Very convenient.
9) That you can get your news from Facebook.
Turns out people are letting their friends decide which (mis)informative sites and articles they access on a daily basis—despite the fact that 30 percent of Americans haven’t seen a single one of their Facebook friends in real life, in the past three months. How social.
10) That the Pacific Ocean does not appear on a world map.
Only 71 percent of Americans could find it, with the rest presumably complaining about that big patch of blue covering up most of the planet’s eastern hemisphere.
11) That another war in Iraq is a good idea.
Vox is already calling B.S. on a Rasmussen report that appears to show that a significant plurality of Americans want to get more aggressive about fighting al-Qaeda in Iraq.
And NONE of this was from the Onion!

If the name ‘Jeffrey Epstein’ sound familiar to anyone in the UK or USA just now then it should do, he has been all over UK TV and Print news for a few months. He is a self made Billionaire by all accounts and a king pin in the Global ‘Sex Abuse Ring’ being told. Lately images started to surface of Mr Epstein with Prince Andrew, yes, the Queen’s son. Jeff spent ONLY only 13 months in prison and is on the sex offenders list, if Mr Average Joe did this, I am guessing 10 years? Epstein did his time in Palm Beach County Jail and not many know he had 17 other out of court settlements paying out a LOT of money to keep people safe and himself out of prison, I will say again, when you have power and money and know the right people, one being the 3rd/4rd heir to the British throne, I say 3rd or 4th as there are strong rumours Prince Charles may abdicate his chance to be King, knowing Camilla can’t be his Queen. But back on track. This ‘Elite’ sex scandal is leading many people to different stories and conclusion. After Jeffrey Epstein done his 13 months in prison it didn’t take long for his good old pal Prince Andrew to pop in for a cup of tea
Allegedly Prince Andrew had under age sex with ‘Slave girl’ Virginia Roberts who filled court papers against Prince Andrew just over a month ago early into 2015. Allegedly Prince Andrew had an orgy with Miss Roberts and 8 others, she claims she was paid $400 for her ‘Services’
Now lets go back to the headline of the article here, I have had the name ‘William Colby’ uttered to me in conversation before and me being lazy I never got my shovel out to dig any further. The video below is real and Authentic. Many in the USA will see it was made by Russianvids and look away but please, the game can get complicated because we are programmed as Mr Colby himself suggested. I have said for some time now that America is Fascist Police State. This is not ‘Alleged’ because there is just way too much proof for it not to be true. I research as hard as one man on his own can and it is my belief and the belief of MILLIONS of American people that this is the case. People have left the USA out of fear, but these people are ‘Informed’ The sad truth is someone, on purpose will hit me with the ‘Conspiracist’ tag and more will look away further.

Again this is all part of a very complex game, the only thing I say is ‘alleged’ here is the Prince Andrew comment, Epstein was found guilty by a jury of his peers. I live in backwater Scotland I have absolutely no need whatsoever to go on-line and make things up. So the story of ‘Fascist Police State USA’ I could prove to you 100 times over, maybe more. I will leave you some headlines, you can go in and read or just pretend everything is A-OK and forget about it, we all have this choice. #DeathEaters is a cause I am no part off but I do my own research and I will write or stop through this. To be ignorant is one thing, to deny your ignorance is way worse. A friend once told me I was a ‘Lone Voice’ I asked my friend to Google Search and You Tube search a certain tag line. Only that person will know their own thinking now, the same goes for you the reader here, right now, I say again as I always do, DON’T BELIEVE ME! Go onto Google or You Tube, it’s all right there, well most of it is anyway, USA I am speaking to you, many will think or say “I CAN’T ACCEPT THIS” Welcome to my World!!! all links below can be clicked and I will leave you will 1 image NOT ONE AMERICA can explain to me, because they can’t, or don’t want to face the truth in that image or the images in the bottom link. I REALLY could not be clearer here, if you can’t comment on a 5 minute read you are ignorant or scared
Now this image, I will try again with you America. On September 11th 2001 one of the most dreadful things that could happen to any nation happened when 4 flights were Hijacked and the Word was told by the USA and it’s POTUS ‘W’ that “Al Qaeda did this” I ask you look at the last link above and ONCE MORE I will ask ANYONE with a brain over there in America, TRUST ME MORE OF YOU HAVE ONE THAT COMES ACROSS! to put some kind of slant on this image below. Before you ‘do me’ on one image, please click the link above before you do, many USA Serving members of military told us all a story, A HUGE STORY in images, from day one when I got these images till now, not one America has explained to me “WHY THE PEOPLE WHO DID 9/11 AND CAUSED ILLEGAL WARS LEAVING THE MIDDLE EAST ALMOST ENGULFED IN HATRED are saying this to their people” Can you? if so you will be the first, think about it, many, even the most average critical thinkers in the USA would have to look back to that terrible day and look back today 14 years later and ask the question “What went down there?” Because all I can see is more War, more Deaths, more hatred, more hatred toward Israel people DON’T GET! How about this for a reason above?
YOU DECIDE, I OFFER OPINIONS AND LINKS AND MORE, DENY, BE IGNORANT OR TAKE WHAT IS COMING AMERICA 😦 I TRULY TIRE OF TRYING
The last resort in all or any of this is to try and go back the way in time to see if there were clues left by our past, sadly we do not need to look too far America

I have said the USA is very Fascist before, I wrote about it. So lets explore ‘Fascism’ shall we America? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fascism
Fascism (/fæʃɪzəm/) is a form of radical authoritarian nationalism that came to prominence in early 20th-century Europe. Influenced by national syndicalism, fascism originated in Italy during World War I, combining more typically right-wing positions with elements of left-wing politics, in opposition to liberalism, Marxism, and traditional conservatism. Although fascism is often placed on the far-right within the traditional left–right spectrum, several academics have said that the description is inadequate.
Fascists sought to unify their nation through an authoritarian state that promoted the mass mobilization of the national community and were characterized by having leadership that initiated a revolutionary political movement aiming to reorganize the nation along principles according to fascist ideology. Fascist movements shared certain common features, including the veneration of the state, a devotion to a strong leader, and an emphasis on ultranationalism and militarism. Fascism views political violence, war, and imperialism as a means to achieve national rejuvenation, and it asserts that stronger nations have the right to expand their territory by displacing weaker nations.[
Fascist ideology consistently invokes the primacy of the state. Leaders such as Benito Mussolini in Fascist Italy and Adolf Hitler in Nazi Germany embodied the state and claimed immense power. Fascism borrowed theories and terminology from socialism but replaced socialism’s focus on class conflict with a focus on conflict between nations and races. Fascists advocate a mixed economy, with the principal goal of achieving autarky to secure national self-sufficiency and independence through protectionist and interventionist economic policies. Following World War II, few parties have openly described themselves as fascist, and the term is usually used pejoratively by political opponents. The terms neo-fascist or post-fascist are sometimes applied more formally to describe parties of the far right with ideological similarities to, or roots in, 20th century fascist movements.
The problems in America today are many, I could say all this below:

To define any given subject we first need to research it. What I am finding with readers and friends from the USA is they deny any/all/some/most of the above claims I am making but fail to understand why. I urged a friend a few nights ago to prove me wrong America isn’t a ‘Police State’ They couldn’t. My friend got upset. I don’t want to be writing this news about a country I actually love. But once you open a door it is often hard to close online. America is NOT the most powerful country on Earth, I reported it just the other day, that duty now falls on China and they WON’T police the World or force their will on the World! https://acenewsdesk.wordpress.com/2014/12/06/its-official-america-is-now-no-2-the-puzzle-is-taking-shape/ As I said before, I truly think the people of the USA are waking up, about time! https://acenewsdesk.wordpress.com/2014/12/04/nyc-demonstration-for-eric-garner-is-america-finally-waking-up/
The hacktivist collective Anonymous has called for a nationwide ‘march of millions’ next Saturday to demand justice for Michael Brown, Eric Garner, and other African Americans who have died as a result of police violence. The ‘Day of Anger’ event, carried under the burgeoning #Blacklivesmatter social movement, is set to take place on December 13. Although tentatively scheduled to kick off in New York City, the hacktivists call for protests all across the nation. “We must not only show our power, but show that there is still hope for humanity, we must show the world these deaths are not in vain,” the group said in a Facebook post.

Protests have broken out across the country after a grand jury decision that acquitted a white New York City police officer of any wrongdoing in the death of Eric Garner, a 43-year-old black Staten Island resident, on July 17.
The incident, ruled a homicide by the medical examiner, was videotaped by a passer-by and put online. In it, the officer can be seen placing Garner in an illegal chokehold while a group of other officers force Garner to the ground. Garner, who reportedly suffered from asthma, died after repeatedly saying, “I can’t breathe” – a phrase that has become a rallying cry for the protesters. The Garner decision came shortly after a Missouri grand jury decided not to indict a white police officer in the death of Michael Brown, 18, who was shot multiple times following a confrontation with police in Ferguson, Missouri despite being unarmed. On Saturday, protests against police brutality turned violent in Berkley, California. Police deployed tear gas and smoke canisters to disperse the protesters after being pelted with bricks, rocks and pipes.

The United States was listed in 27th place when it comes to wealth inequality around the world, according to a report made by Credit Suisse, with 74.6 percent of its wealth held by the top 10 percent. I think it is safe to assume the dynamics of our World are changing. The American Dream is in a coma, people in the USA are generally poor. The USA is a 2 class nation, Rich and poor. Through all the people I speak with, some good friends, I don’t just hear it, I see it also. Russia threatened the USA that ‘Stomping around the Globe creating War must stop’ and I agree, even decent men (Forget left, right, liberal, conservative, democrat and republican and just look at as a caring human) like Ron Paul have said ‘The Wars must end’ Sadly the gap between people with money who don’t help people IN THE USA and people in the USA who wake up in some cases just to eat has got wider. The lucky are a tiny minority, I know amazing friends who help people in other countries, I say (like a friend I speak to) help your own people.
Sadly Racism is HUGE issue in the USA where people blame the African American’s, they won’t say it out loud, but many think it, I have heard it. Americans still think “EVERYTHING WILL BE OK” I am sorry, it is already broke, the suffering has begun. When people are killed in my country, we say ‘That kid that was shot’, the USA say ‘The black kid that was shot’ America has Single ‘A’ financial credit line the World over. UK is ‘AAA’ as do others. Is it then fair to presume the USA is now a 2nd World country? MOST of the people in the USA I speak to say it is. The people with money don’t see it, they laugh at the mere notion. America, you are asleep at the wheel going downhill heading for a cliff, you all must act like the people in the UK are. STAND UP! When Russia and China stopped trading in the PetroDollar, things got a whole lot worse.

Putin Warns The Western ‘Elite’ – Play Time Is Over – USA BEST LISTEN!
It was almost 30 years ago that the American economy was said to have been operating in a manner that was beneficial for everybody -as even those who were identified as the middle class were perceivably getting richer. But now, there’s a new actuality: 90% of US households are poorer than they were in 1987, according to both a new study and the head of the Federal Reserve.
In fact, this reality is much more dramatic than it sounds. Today, many consider that Reaganomics is becoming a disproved and discredited lie, and that the American economy is ravaged by the crippling consequences it inherently features.
Matt O’Brien reported about a new study in the Washington Post, making reference to a new National Bureau of Economic Research (NBER) paper on US wealth inequality. The paper was made by Emmanuel Saez and Gabriel Zucman.
The paper is built on tax information. Matt O’Brien wrote:
“The new, harsh reality is that the bottoms 90 percent of households are poorer today than they were in 1987. It’s been a lost 25 years for the bottom 90 percent, but a lost 15 for the next 9 percent, too. That’s right: altogether, the bottom 99 percent are worth less today than they were in 1998.”
The chart below, shows that since 1980, the top 0.01%’s piece of the wealth pie has increased by 8.6 percentage points, while the next 0.09%’s has done so by 5.4.
Janet Yellen, the Federal Reserve Board Chairwoman was able to get more through the reviewing of the statistics at the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston Economic Conference on Inequality of Economic Opportunity. She remarked:
“The wealthiest five percent of American households held 54 percent of all wealth reported in the 1989 survey. Their share rose to 61 percent in 2010 and reached 63 percent in 2013,” she said. “By contrast, the rest of those in the top half of the wealth distribution ‒ families that in 2013 had a net worth between $81,000 and $1.9 million ‒ held 43 percent of wealth in 1989 and only 36 percent in 2013.
The extent and continuing increase in inequality in the United States greatly concern me. I think it is appropriate to ask whether this trend is compatible with values rooted in our nation’s history, among them the high value Americans have traditionally placed on equality of opportunity.”
According to Matt O’Brien’s report, the “recovery” from the Great Recession of 2008 hasn’t fully benefited the majority of Americans, at least not the way it has for the wealthiest 10 percent. During the crisis, stocks collapsed. Those who are in the middle class were in debt from buying houses, not stocks, when the markets for both crashed.
“The middle class, in other words, missed out on the big bull market in stocks, but not on the even bigger bear one in housing. That’s why the recovery has restored so little of the wealth that the recession destroyed.
In fact, the bottom 90 percent have actually kept losing net worth the past few years, in large part, due to rising student loan debt.”
Education debt was also a part of the problem as Janet Yellen wrote. She said:
“Rising college costs, the greater numbers of students pursuing higher education, and the recent trends in income and wealth have led to a dramatic increase in student loan debt. Outstanding student loan debt quadrupled from $260 billion in 2004 to $1.1 trillion this year,” she noted. “The relative burden of education debt has long been higher for families with lower net worth and that this disparity has grown much wider in the past couple decades.”
In the US, the top one percent now own over 41 percent of all the wealth in the country, O’Brien also mentioned that that percentage is the most since 1939. He wrote:
“It’s still well below the all-time high of 51 percent set in 1928… In other words, this new Gilded Age might get even more Gilded.”
In an article titled “We’re Being Mislead About Wealth Inequality; No One Knows If It Is Rising Or Falling,” Tim Worstall argued many ideas about “wealth inequality.” He said:
“What we do know about is what is happening to the inequality of marketable, financial wealth: That is rising. But, that is a subset of all wealth and depending upon how you want to think about it that’s not an important part of that total wealth either.”
The United States was listed in seventh place when it comes to wealth inequality around the world, according to a report made by Credit Suisse, with 74.6 percent of its wealth held by the top 10 percent. Russia was the most unequal country, with the 84.8 percent of its national wealth held by its top 10 percent.
