Bullying in America: The byproduct of Fascism and the decline of the dollar

in 1950, the average person making 4$ an hour could support a family of 4, buy a house,car,send 2 kids to college and retire comfortably knowing they have a good pension plan.

Nowadays, both parents have to work full time jobs(usually 40 hrs and above) just to put enough food on the table and be lucky enough to be paying a mortgage on a house they don't really own(they don't care if something happens to you if you are unable to pay your real estate taxes)

Where are the parents that could have prevented this situation by teaching their kids to treat others better?

Many, if not all, were too busy trudging along trying to "reach" the American dream(you never really own your home. The real dream is to get rich and once you make it, let the unfortunate others serve you)

The death of innocence is what happens when you've gotten yourself a brutal execution of a Fascist system where everybody is trying to get themselves and their kids ahead of everybody else in a sad race to the bottom:

"Kevin Cullen
The untouchable Mean Girls

Like a lot of kids her age, Phoebe Prince was a swan, always beautiful and sometimes awkward.

Last fall, she moved from Ireland into western Massachusetts, a new town, a new high school, a new country, a new culture. She was 15, when all that matters is being liked and wearing the right clothes and just fitting in.

She was a freshman and she had a brief fling with a senior, a football player, and for this she became the target of the Mean Girls, who decided then and there that Phoebe didn’t know her place and that Phoebe would pay.

Kids can be mean, but the Mean Girls took it to another level, according to students and parents. They followed Phoebe around, calling her a slut. When they wanted to be more specific, they called her an Irish slut.

The name-calling, the stalking, the intimidation was relentless.

Ten days ago, Phoebe was walking home from school when one of the Mean Girls drove by in a car. An insult and an energy drink can came flying out the car window in Phoebe’s direction.

Phoebe kept walking, past the abuse, past the can, past the white picket fence, into her house. Then she walked into a closet and hanged herself. Her 12-year-old sister found her.

You would think this would give the bullies who hounded Phoebe some pause. Instead, they went on Facebook and mocked her in death.

They told State Police detectives they did nothing wrong, had nothing to do with Phoebe killing herself.

And then they went right back to school and started badmouthing Phoebe.

They had a dance, a cotillion, at the Log Cabin in Holyoke two days after Phoebe’s sister found her in the closet, and some who were there say one of the Mean Girls bragged about how she played dumb with the detectives who questioned her.

Last week, one of the Springfield TV stations sent a crew to South Hadley High to talk to the kids.

One girl was interviewed on camera, and she said what was common knowledge: that bullies were stalking the corridors of South Hadley High."

The "best" and the "brightest" High school students in the cultural melting pot of the United States, having been told or already knowledgeable of how expensive a basic College education has become( increasing over 30 fold since 1970) end up attempting to excel at everything in school from academics to athletics to student government to community service and other activities that could make them look like leaders so that Major Colleges can offer them free tuition or failing so their overworked parents can foot the bill of 40k per year undergraduate tuition.

Some of the kids find it natural to end up excelling at something else: Bullying those kids that are inferior to them in terms of accomplishments, come from different background or are immigrants or achieve something that they could not, like the affection of a peer.

There you have it. Welcome to the Land of Milk and Honey. Brought to you by the "We're going to make you work harder than ever for the continually depreciating dollar we're busy printing" FEDERAL RESERVE SYSTEM.

Don't forget, by the time you've entered High School we'll brain wash enough of you with the might of our subjugating military industrial complex.

If you want further proof of the fascism that goes on in America:

"Protesters were expected to call for the superintendent and the principals' resignations. Instead, the school district's supporters came en masse. They handed out "I Support Dan Smith" stickers and gave the principal a standing ovation. Some people sat stony-faced, but the majority clapped. When Smith rose to speak, he choked up. "What's been happening has to stop in our community," he said. "I look around and see a lot of soldiers tonight, which is good. We need you." He described how the anti-bullying taskforce would organize itself going forward, and asked for volunteers. He concluded, "I'm really hopeful for our kids—for their good, which so many of you are here about, and that it's time to move on."

We'll do the bidding of Foreign Merchant Bankers who like to hide behind socialist systems while we do their fascist bidding for them.

Don't mind them, their thin air printed wealth backed by our might has afforded them the idle time to do adversarial work. If a country looks like it might be going the way of prosperity and away from serfdom, we'll start a war there.

Back to the 1950's idyllic times. Were it not for the destroyed manufacturing base of Japan and Western Europe(Especially Germany's Dresden near the End of WWII) there would not have been the Post World War II baby boom and resultant prosperity.

The United States has lost the manufacturing race( the main source of Middle Class wealth for countries) and now it stands on the precipice of World War III in a deluded final attempt to get it back.

The Usurious banksters know that they can't let that happen. Their ultimately worthless mountains of paper wealth cannot buy them another planet.

The main enemy of the Thin air printers is a people that consumes 30% of the World resources while only consisting of 5% of the World's population.

Aside from record flooding southeast of the New England area where this heinous crime of bullying occurred, that is why we are experiencing the liquidation of a nation:

The byproduct of such a liquidation manifests itself in seemingly unconnected ways.


" iReport —
I have something to say about this Phoebe Prince situation especially in regards to a lot of the comments made on the most recent story. For whatever reason, no matter how many times I log in, I cannot comment on any stories outside of the iReports...

As a person who lives in the area and has more knowledge than the average person weighing in on this story let me make something more clarified since CNN hasn't made efforts to include certain things.

This story is way more than any of you can comprehend as we, in Western Mass reside in the fishbowl as you all look in at the distorted version you see through the glass.

This wasn't your average bullying where they're stealing her lunch money and kicking dirt on her shoes. They followed her home, the got their hands on her cell phone number NUMEROUS times though the number was changed over and over. Called and texted her over and over leaving heinous messages. Some of those messages included "You're a disgusting slut, no one loves/cares about you. Kill yourself". For someone like Phoebe with already demolished self esteem, these were things that pushed her closer to the edge.

These kids are NOT your average snarky teen that will bug the nerd at school.

In spite of one commenter saying the boys didn't commit rape if she consented (1moment) Yes there is rape involved and it doesn't matter if Phoebe said "yes". In the state of MA you have to be 16 or older to say "yes". She was 15. Secondly, she was intimidated into saying yes. She felt that if she said yes and went through with having sex with these boys that the bullying would end. Instead it got worse and that is what set her on the track to suicide. She let these people violate her time and again and she couldn't live with it.

Let me go on to make it clear that people attacking her for not being a stronger person at the ripe old age of 15. I'm sorry but, REALLY??? The only thing that hasn't surfaced from this is these kids actually beating her physically. They did EVERYTHING else imaginable. Attacking her parents for not taking her out of school. Gee, they live in a little town called South Hadley MA and until this story broke no one who had never lived in MA had ever heard of it. Do you think these people could AFFORD to take her out of school, or maybe they should have kept her home and faced DCF charges for not sending her to school?

The school officials were called, they ALL knew this was going on and they stood idly by and let it happen. Yes I said LET it happen. We call that depraived indifference, in MA. Don't any of you find it a little odd that the superintendant of schools is out of town and unable to answer questions on this and in addition to that doesn't make his way home with haste as this continues to unravel? I do.

If my school district is in trouble as an elected official I am THERE to be at the forefront answering questions and seeing to it ANYONE involved/with knowledge is hauled in for questions and any necessary prosecution. Actually, as an elected official and presiding over school in a relatively small town I'd be a little more in the know about the goings-on in the only flipping High School in town. I certainly don't allow anyone bullying eachother. They're supposed to be learning how to be good, productive, prosperous people. Last I checked, no job/life style in the world rewards the person who bullies the crap out of everyone in sight.

This all goes FAR beyond what any of you think. The school tried to sweep it under the rug because they all knew that she may be alive right now if they'd done something to protect this girl. Now its national news, (Yes THIS is news, who Tiger Woods' was screwing is NOT) and they're all running for cover.

These kids who caused this are actually STILL not getting what they deserve. Likely, they'll be put on probation, made to do community service and some day this will just be a forgotten issue in their lives that mommy and daddy probably gets sealed as soon as no one is looking. And a judge will agree to it because hey, no sense in ruining another young persons life, right?

WRONG, leave it there for all to see and make them go through some extensive counseling because there is something SERIOUSLY wrong with them if they honestly think that what they were doing wasn't that big of a deal. Phoebe paid with her life, they should at the very least remember this with the remorse it is due. And trust me when I say these girls, and these boys GENUINELY believe that they weren't doing anything "that bad". She was just some stupid girl they messed with and she couldn't take it. I promise you they feel no remorse which I find disgusting.

They aren't going to ever really pay for their crimes. Lets all just hope that one day your children aren't being bullied like this girl was or like the young boy in Springfield who also killed himself because he was being bullied. Like I said at least twice now, this is NOT your average picking and poking and pigtail tugging you think is was. It was some mutated heinous stuff going on. Teens these days are doing/involing themselves in things that make the most "experienced" adults skin crawl. It has to stop."
