Excellent points, and a must read!
Sorry to hear of your IRA troubles.
You are correct. It's what we dont see that gets us!
Wow, you have been ready for a long time!
In 1979 I was just starting high school!
We have lived through the threat of mutual assured destruction.
Maybe the worst thing we face now after all is complacancy.
We should have been ready for this inevitable contraction
of consumerism and rampant unsustainable growth years ago.
Sooner or later we will run out of water, food, habitat, etc.
Instead we've been living on borrowed time and money,
with no apparent will to change any of it! We are still arguing
over if it's even happening! Wow, how handy! This allows the
very continuation of the things that will "get us", to proliferate!
Indeed the snowball has grown too large to stop rolling now.
All we can do is hang on as we go round and round, just trying
to not get dizzy and fall off.
I don't listen to dates that much either, they are usually decided
by man, therefore can be wrong at the least.
Our current calendar has been tweaked enough, we could be off
by a few years anyway, rendering 2012 as not neccessarily accurate.
That being said, the stars are aligning however.....
I just keep thinking of the biblical passage in Matthew:
But of that day and hour no one has knowledge, not even the angels in heaven, or the Son, but the Father only.
Nuff said. Peace B with U! Much respect also.
Thank you for your reply!
P.S. Today I bought more fuel for the campstoves. (was on sale)
