I'm sitting at my computer screen, doing as all of you are, watching the news - wondering which country will blow up which other country in the Middle-East first. A huge part of me (the part that can forget that real innocent people live there) says "Let them blow the crap out of each other and get it over with already, thousands of years the same crap hitting the same fan - Middle East (if you are reading) come to New Jersey and see how every imaginable religion, sect., and culture can function without the need to annihilate each other - it can work, I just don't think YOU have it in you to agree to disagree and merge into a separate but equal society.
Meanwhile the more humane side of me wishes (but deep down knows) that there is no solution to this problem - it is Biblical in scale, if not in Biblical in nature. I think MOST of this is not prophecy, but rather SELF-FULFILLED PROPHOSY. In other-words, these cultures have decided that THEY are what the END TIMES are talking about and with enough effort on their part, I'm afraid they will get their way. Or to metaphor it a bit "Whether you think you CAN or think you CAN'T, you are RIGHT!"
I reflect on the Mayan Calendar and wonder what the end date of December 21, 2012 means - did they just RUN OUT OF ROCK when chiseling out a calendar or does it prophesies the next REBIRTH of humanity, the final cleansing of this wonderful planet which we have been killing since we stepped foot on it. Only creatures capable of unimaginable wonder can be so adversely destructive. I believe in a God and wonder how he could make something as FLAWED as us and then IN FAITH we read "Created in His image." I'm so confused about that.
I know, Beemaster is rambling on again and we know that usually leads to UFOs - lol. But this one will stay Interplanetary, I promise to try, after all this isn't the Dark-side Forum :)
It hurts to know that our time on this planet is always just a "boom or two" away. We can't pollute it to death fast enough, so we choose to Nuke it instead. I can only think of it as having a choice of Convection Oven or Microwaving the planet - and I don't think either term is far from reality.
Isn't the UN good for anything? I know we have trouble staying out of other people's business and I think "this" would be a GREAT place to stay out of, but WE ARE ALL READY THERE or haven't you seen the news for the LAST THREE YEARS! We have only accomplished ONE THING in the Bush Administration - we have a STRONG HOLD PRESENCE in the MIDDLE EAST, nicely tucked away right there next to Iran. You cannot possibly make me believe that the adjenda was not to setup a force, battle standing in the heat of things.
That makes me wonder too how much our leadership has to do with self-fulfilling prophosy too. Scary to think about stuff and a huge disappointment from the people who brought you Ronald Reagan.
Our troops are at escalated risk yet again, if such a term is possible to use. Cause, what the heck, while we are in the neighborhood, we might as well take on the WHOLE Middle East, and SINCE WE ARE ALREADY THERE (again in the neighborhood) How about doing something POSITIVE for a change in AFRICA - what... no oil??? Well, I guess will NEVER go there - sorry Dafur.
I'm sure that tomorrow I'll return to work at the Navy Base and we'll be under heightened alert again. Which means that RANDOM CAR CHECKS are greatly increased (they basically do it like this) the car that is currently pulled over will be allowed to merge into in-bound base traffic and the SECOND CAR in line will be pulled over. This is done quite randomly, I don't see targeting EVEN THOUGH I hold the RECORD at my workplace with a whopping 16 times fully searched with drug and bomb dogs. Jerry, I'm sure that curls your toes like a long winded vasectomy story, but it comes with the job and I do not feel my privacy is violated - I'm very honest about that.
Heightened Security doesn't mean much, unless it is a BEHIND THE SCENES thing that is NOT obvious to us employees. I assume it means a few more military police cars on the roads and an extra chair manning the HUNDREDS of 360 degree cameras around the base. Not too many people have seen what security sees, I'm sure we would all be shocked. But it is understandable (and commonly found knowledge) what we do and how important our mission is - I'm guaranteeing you this, when crap hits the fan, feathers will fly and a mighty Army will do all it can to prevent the end of mankind. I really think that is our solemn duty to this planet and which ever God we believe in.
There goes an AMERICAN speaking again (you don't have to tell me) thinking like we do is pampas and FORCING FREEDOM on people seems to be the only thing we cram down the throats of other people on our planet. Most people (Dems and Reps, Libs and Cons alike) think we are just finishing GHWB's unfinished business of 1991. I totally believe that Georgie is totally believing he is doing GOD's work, just as Pat Robertson and other fanatics are. Look at this administration and you see the same old faces behind the leadership that you saw 15 years ago - with few exceptions.
I mentioned this, I voted for a President MY FIRST TIME when I was 21 (I was too you the previous election) and on that ballot was Ronnie and GHWB and SINCE THEN there has ALWAYS BEEN either a CLINTON or a BUSH on the Ballot - I'm not joking, do the numbers. Now we will se Billary, opppps Hillary on the ballot in 2008, so we wont see a possible NEW NAME other than Clinton AND Bush until 2012 THE YEAR OF THE MYAN CALANDAR (just a thought!!!)
I wish us (this planet) the best in the days and years ahead. I don't have much long-term faith in this species we call Human. Maybe we'll get lucky and some OTHER PLANET will SEED us after the radiation levels drop. Much like Mars did it over nearly 600,000 years ago before they were forced out of their underground cities as the last drop of sub-surface atmosphere faded away. Then, once seeding the Earth, they left for deep space and now are just 6 years away from communicating with what is left of MANKIND.
Told you I could get through that without UFOs :roll:
