    It doesn't matter if Ya believe in the Mayan prophesy or those in the Christian bible or not.

       Am I the only one that sees the multi-train wreck that is coming over the horizon?

       So many trains coming at the same time through the same place at the same time?   Ya might just shrug your shoulders if it were just a few!   But it looks to me like a herd o buffalo.
    The worlds problems?  How can Ya fix them?
       The world economy is shaky; What is one more hurricane Katrina & one more quake like Japan had, and how many more floods in one area and drought right next door goina do to an already failing down system?

       When too many people get hungry at the same time, fighting is going to break in everybodys neighborhood.

       I hope you are right!  I'm just  “A crazy Man”!

       I been seeing it coming for a long time!

       We are getting down to the short rows.
       What do you see?  A land of milk and honey right around the corner?
    Hope you are right!

    I'm a thinking ...   hold on cause we are all in or a rough ride that is getting ready to start.

      Jerami, history is replete with documented tragedy, famines, war and unrest. We'll get through this period and the result will be a more unified and peaceful world.

      Don't look for the bad. Look at the good. As a species, we've come a very long way, in a very short time. Think of how much we've learned in the last hundred years. We are not the same as we were even then.

      Change creates conflict as people adjust, but our survival instincts will help us find the path; as a global society.

      Cheer up. smile

        Yes Emile, I need to cheer up, I've been feeling down lately.

          Kinda like; When hurricane Katrina was still out in the Gulf of Mexico. The Day before looked like any other day, but somehow we knew tomorrow was going to change many peoples lives, but we didn't know just how much.
           Everybody got ready just like we've done dozens of times before.

          Yes, the world has seen storms before, and earthquakes, floods and droughts, revolutions and wars. But never so many of these in such a short period of time.
          All of these things have become common occurrences around the globe; So common that we pay little attention to them when we hear of them.
           And now, our monetary system, which operates invisibly in the darkest corners of our computers which turns fortunes into poverty over night, with a touch on some ones key pad? This can be the most disastrous event in mankind’s history.

           How hot does the water have to get before the frog understands what is happening?

          I do believe that biblical prophesy has been grossly misinterpreted,  ...  However,
          Whatever they were really saying? 
          We are seeing them come to their conclusion.
        All we can do is to prepare ourselves mentally.

          And YES  We should Cheer up every chance we get.

    Yes we are all in for a rough ride. London's riots this week are a case in point. Yes, there was a seed cause, but they would never have taken off so violently were it not for the alienation that is endemic in our societies. It's ironic that just as mass protests against tyranny are starting to bear fruit in the Middle East, the so called stable developed countries are falling apart at the seams.
