UPDATE Feb. 1: Check out a new infographic explaining what the Egypt protests are actually accomplishing.

Egypt's four days of raging protests are the result of many issues they have had with their government reaching a boiling point. This high level of violent protests are likely to end in the next couple of days, but this whole idea of replacing Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak could fester until he dies or starts promising fundamental changes. The first step could be either raising the minimum wage or declaring an end to 30 years of emergency law. Here's a look at Egypt's grievances against the incumbent government:

NEW WORLD ORDER IS ABOUT TO REACH THEIR ULTIMATE GOAL "GLOBAL DOMINATION" THAT IS WHY THE PRESIDENT OF EGYPT IS TRYING TO GIVE HIS SON POWER BECAUSE HE ALREADY KNOWS THE IN'S AND OUT'S OF THE "NEW WORLD ORDER." WE ALL NEED TO SPREAD THIS INFORMATION AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE SO WE CAN WAKE AMERICANS UP FROM THE TRANZ THEY ARE IN, THANKS TO THE GOVERNMENT CONTROLLED MEDIA.

This is getting way out of hand. People are throwing rocks at each other and about 62 people have already died through injuries.

what can we really do as regular citizens? not a damn thang.. the only way we have a chance is to whack everyone in power now and do it until not even there kids survive and start over.. there is way too many greedy individuals who have no empathy for human life or survival, and its only fair that if you have no empathy or respect for human life.. NOONE should respect your life. and therefore should'nt be allowed to live.. why? because oppression in any form through psycho manipulation, military force, verbal dehumanization, or deceptive power plays.. the only rule to sharing this world with EVREYONE is to love EVERYONE except those who want your complete submission to there government or belief system.. getting rid of those that want US DEAD and SLAVES is the only way we will be free.. if not its not long befor the whole whole is engulfed in totalitarianism.. including the USA

It's complicated because, Corporations run this country. Take them down and make it illegal for any government employee to accept any corporate job, stock options, or any other financial compensation ever(they are already wealthy). If I paid you a couple of million dollars what would you do?

Here are some interesting facts
• Obama and McCain received all most identical political contributions (millions) from the same corporations.
• There are 13 elite families that own over 80% of the world’s wealth.
• Boeing has been caught selling our F22 raptor and other military secrets 4 times in the last 5 years to China (You and I would be punished by death in time of war)
• Boeing signed a 45 billion dollar contract with china (Boeing’s income last year 65 billion)
• China has a new fighter jet that competes with our F22
• Media (News stations, online press, etc.) are owned by the corporations
• Most Corporations are evil just research them…

The American government can stretch us a little more I'm sure. We are too afraid of our government and don't even know it, thats what they want. We are more concerned as a country for other countries. Just tell the American people about Terror, and we shake! Okay people, lets go into this country now, borrow money from china, shut down a few schools, put everyone on food stamps. Where just surviving! I don't see love in the American work force either. Its bad! No one cares like they use to. Money and greed is what drives us. We only became great because we cared as workers, as a team, not anymore. It seems like everyone in the work force of America is trying to get over on one another and too much arse kissing. Were not acting like angels, more like slaves, now to a government that has isolated us from the truth. They are truely brillant! A women president maybe? A black guy, good! Whats next? Someone who can do a hand stand? Hey, America, I will end all problems if you vote for me right now, k?..............
