NickTom & the rest of the people agreeing with him: I would just like to Welcome you to our little 'family' here at ATS(NickTom). But, I would like
to strongly disagree with you and your post. And I will outline how what you said has a bunch of holes in it.
1) the oil tycoons take power (the bush family)
For one the Bush family is not the only oil tycoons in the free world nor do they hold more than 50% shares in any of there business dealings. Thus
for them to take power would entail a full liqudation of there companies and there share holders and as we are both well aware off share holders will
not relinquish there shares.
4) the world oil supply is supposed to run out between 2011 and 2015. but thats ok for the U.S. becuz we already have control of the Iraq oil fields.
this is inpart very benfictual for the U.S. becuz we will have a least two years to get alteritive fuel sources up while the rest of the world is
stuck in the stone age.
The United States alone has enough oil to supply the people of America for the better part of 4 centuries or 400 years and we are talking about
current demand. So, your claim that the oil will run out is absolutly absurd. I don't know where your getting your facts from. Furthermore, have you
noticed many cars on the road are fuel efficent and we are moving more and more towards an oil alternative.
5) the bush family will also become the dictators of the U.S. they will do this by declaring marshall law. the only way that they can do that is if a
nother major terroist attack happens in the U.S. such as a nuke in one of our major cities. but once that happens bush than then declare marshall law
This in my eyes was one of the most ridiciouls posts I have ever read. The reason behind this my claim is this. The president can not declare marshall
law unless it is warranted such as a terrorist attack. Furthermore, marshall law has to be called for in a situation in which the president felt that
the people and the assests of the U.S. were in grave danger and congress always has a say in this. Furthermore, how can Bush possibly become a
dictator? What are you talking about?? People already don't like Bush how in gods green earth will he convince people to buy into him?? Remmember
Hitler? He was a dictator, what happened to him? What hapened to his ideas? And you keep saying the Bush family?
Bush is the president for a few more years and than he is out and you will forget all about Bush and start on a different president. A nation can not
transist from democracy to dictatorship over night, it would take decades if not centuries, and by that time Bush and his father will most likely be
dead(IF, this was to ever happen).
I not sure what will happen after this but bepreaped for a war on drinkable water. our clear water is dwindleing every day and more and more people
are being born every day! in the 1950s the population was about 3 billion and 50 years later its growing on 6 billion. by 2010 the estimates for our
world population will be 15 billion.
A person can buy a filtration machine now that will produce 25 drinkable gallons of water a day. And this is a small portable home machine. There is
ALOT of water on earth as the earth is over 50% water, and filtration systems are rampant. And NO, we are not running out of drinkable water!! What
are you talking about? Turn on your faucet and see how long it takes for it to run out.
I must agree with you on world population and this is a problem. But, yet again you come out with some off the wall estimate 15 billion!!! your
telling me that in 4 years the population will rise by 9 billion!! Are you smoking something? I want it. If you have not noticed all the super powers
are venturing back to the moon to see if there is water there and mars is a prime location for colonization. The world is evolving around you and soon
enough(30-100 years) man kind will take the next step in evolution, SPACE travel. If you have anything to add to this please do. I will explain
everything to you. And please, if you can, provide me links to your figures, I would love to see them.
In any case, welcome to ATS and I hope you enjoy your stay.
