America – Awfully Like Israel Used To Be

I’ve got this One Year Bible (OYB) thing going all year round. I’m sure that you know about it, but for those of you who don’t, I’ll explain. Basically, it’s a version of the bible that is split up into 365 pieces. Each day you have about twenty to thirty minutes worth of reading. You get a 1/365th of the Old Testament, a 1/365th of the New Testament, a 1/365th of Psalms, and a a 1/365th of Proverbs. (Although, some versions of the OYB will take you through Psalms and Proverbs twice in a year.) I like it. It keeps … Click here to read the rest…

The Coming Storm

Being stuck in the hospital has given me a chance to catch up on my video backlog. Just before we left for Israel last year, we took our collection of DVDs and converted them to avi. And, now I have the chance to go through some of them. One of the videos that I saw last night was called ‘The Coming Storm’, hosted from Mt Megiddo, Israel, by David Cerullo of Inspiration Ministries. NOTE: I have no idea if there is any truth to the scandal surrounding the size of David Cerullo’s salary. I can only comment on the video … Click here to read the rest…

Why This, Why Now

Well, since I’m sitting here in my hospital room, disconnected from the rest of the world, it has given me the opportunity to reflect more on WHY things are happening, not just WHAT is happening. Why things are happening is a common thread that winds its way through all of my posts, but it is rarely the raison d’etre of the post itself. So, let’s reflect a bit on the WHY of it all. Why is it that all this is happening now? Why is it that we are seeing a spike in earthquakes? Why do we see Russia coming … Click here to read the rest…

Brink of Disaster

Yikes! That, was an incredible surprise. Greece actually threw the whole question of Greek bailout (and by default EU membership) to a referendum? And, the Prime Minister sacks the heads of the military? At the same time? You know, I was just settling down to the idea that our timetable for disaster was going to be delayed. I thought to myself “Maybe I’ll get a chance to work on some of those other writing projects. Maybe I’ll get a chance to kick back for a bit and coast.” Nope. Not gonna happen. People are determined to be idiots, and I’m … Click here to read the rest…

Europe Headed for Disaster

You know, when you have a hole in your gas tank, you must fix the hole before putting any more gasoline in the tank. Yes, it’s true that the engine stalls, and everything stops moving forward when you do that. But, you cannot keep dumping fuel into a leaky gas tank. Pretty soon, the price of gasoline will go up, and you’ll eventually run out of more of it to put in the tank. Here are the steps for fixing a leaking gas tank: Stop car. Fix tank. Fill tank. Start car. What Europe has done so far is fix … Click here to read the rest…

Days of Reckoning

We dodged the first (for now). Here comes the second. The day is November 23rd, and it’s an open question whether we will get past this one. That’s when the “Super Committee” must come up with an answer to rampant budget deficits. The problem is that I’m not sure that we’ll get a solution. Here’s an article from Money and Markets: Two Big Days of Reckoning — Oct. 26 and Nov. 23! Martin D. Weiss Ph.D. | Monday, October 24, 2011 Mark your calendar for two historic days that could shake Wall Street to its foundation and change the Western … Click here to read the rest…

Iran Has Nuclear Weapons

About four years ago, I speculated that Iran already had nuclear weapons, because it didn’t make sense that Iran would pass up the opportunity to procure such weapons from poorly guarded stockpiles in the Soviet Union. It just didn’t make sense to me that a paranoid, imperialistic country like Iran would not jump at the chance to get ‘the ultimate weapon’. Well, it seems that I was right. Iran did take the opportunity to get nuclear weapons on the cheap, and they now have the means to use those weapons. The question now remains, how long will they wait to … Click here to read the rest…

Europe Safe, Maybe For Now

If you remember, I was worried about October 17. Well, that came and went without so much as a flutter, basically because the EU stepped in and paid the shortfall on Greece’s payments due on that day. It was a relief, but it only put off the problem until January. Well, there’s a meeting of EU members to try and fix the problem, and the voice that everyone was listening for was Germany’s – specifically, Germany’s agreement to play it’s part in the Greek bailout. And, Germany DID agree, mostly. Basically, Germany agreed to pay its share of the €440bn … Click here to read the rest…

The People Behind Occupy Wall Street

I just saw this a couple hours ago, and I was impressed by how Glenn Beck packaged his information and made it understandable. You REALLY need to watch this, and if you like what you see, you need to sign up for GBTV. It’s not expensive, and it just might put you ahead of the curve when things turn bad. (If you think things are bad now, wait till you see what’s coming.) I bet that, when you are finished watching this video… I bet that you will ask yourself, what I asked myself… Why did we let things get … Click here to read the rest…

72 Hours

That’s the shortest amount of time it would take for help to arrive from outside your area. That’s the amount of time it would take for people to realize that help isn’t going to arrive. That’s the time you have to get to safety when everything falls apart. Another way of saying this is that we are all “nine meals from anarchy“. When the power goes off and doesn’t come back on (and won’t come back on) you have 72 hours to get to a place where you’ll be safe – and that may be an optimistic assessment. You might … Click here to read the rest…
