Pray for the Future to Vindicate Your Actions

On Valentine's Day, I'd like to give a little reminder to everyone that there is a product of the romance and togetherness that many of you are feeling right now. The UN just completed a study of how that product is being taken care of, and guess what?

"The United States and Britain ranked at the bottom of a U.N. survey released Wednesday evaluating the well-being of children in wealthy countries."

This should be a clue and a half to anyone proposing that we go to War with Iran. Yes, the two countries committed to sharing their moral and behavioral superiority with the world, no matter what the cost, are failing their most important responsibility. Security begins with the protection and well being of our children. Anything other than that is buttressing the fortress walls while leaving the gates open and the bridge down.

Is this the effect of squandering billions, if not trillions, on fruitless war? I doubt it. From what I've read here, this study took into account facts all the way back to 2000. That means we were failing miserably in our duties before we even began the new crusade. I am sure that the current statistics would paint an even worse picture.

So, to beat a dead horse, much like Bush and his necromancers are doing with our military, I will make the point again...

There is no security in their policies, no pot of gold at the end of their delusional rainbow and no honor in this continued and blood soaked crusade of bravado. Yes, attacking Iran will look like a success in the beginning. Our military is awesome in its ability to smash walls and storm the enemy. Unfortunately it will be nothing more than a catastrophic success, destined for failure. It will not improve our children's security or make us any safer. It will only achieve a temporary stasis of pride. You know, that thing which comes before the fall.

Iran's leader is a nut. But, as silly as he is, he is correct in asserting that America is the main problem in the world. America's arrogance, self-rightness, greed, ridiculous ways, sinister means, and habit of raping and pillaging the Earth's natural beauty for the sake of vanity, convenience, and profit are nudging mankind toward destruction. The worst part is that she is corrupting most other nations beyond any hope of redemption.If God failed to destroy her, there would be no hope for anyone. But He will demolish America. She shall suffer a fatal blow before July 4, 2014 and be dead before the end of 2017. By the way, thanks to the silliness of GW Bush, Congress, most of the American people, and too many other folks on this world, a depression is coming that will make the previous Great Depression seem like a minor recession by comparison. It might begin as early as late 2008 or sooner and will certainly begin before the end of 2010. Meanwhile, a pall of ominous portents will hang over the next presidential election. Whomever is unfortunate enough to prevail during such will regret their victory even before the celebrations end. More bad news will reach them soon after the inauguration. Their administration will be cursed before it assumes power.

Ever meet him, speak with him, see him in person?


"If God failed to destroy her, there would be no hope for anyone. "

If God exists there is hope, regardless of anything else. If that God has grace, sweet.

"a pall of ominous portents will hang over the next presidential election."

Beware the spooky words. There are always ominous portents when u get that many ppl lying to themselves and others, but a pall? My God not a pall of them.

"Whomever is unfortunate enough to prevail during such will regret their victory even before the celebrations end. More bad news will reach them soon after the inauguration. Their administration will be cursed before it assumes power."

Oh come on, that's like saying

'The Cubs will Start the season strong. Then in June they will Swoon and find a way to be on vacation by October, no matter what.'

It's too damn easy to guess..
