I think I will continue to plant and harvest and watch my grandchildren grow up
and encourage them go to college,go on missions, marry and have children, and do
as much good as they can, and try to live peaceably with each other and their

of worrying about something you 1) Cannot stop and 2) Will affect EVERYONE,
is....? Moot. 'We cannot control the time we are given.

There are probably as many ideas of an apocalypse as there are people but one
thing I do believe is the world nations are going to implode in to total and

Manifest Destiny to rule the world just as it was used to push progress across
the US in the 1850's. Manifest destiny and eminent domain are popular US take
over clauses in most foreign countries but the nations have been pushed beyond
their means to remain organized. So it will all implode and US debts and IOU's
will be demanded by our debt holders. The US has planted our debts and promises
of payment in the hands of foreign countries hoping it will stave off demands
for payment but I don't think it will work anymore. Nations working on a
balanced budget will not withstand issuing promissory notes to its citizens and
armies. If we think the real-estate implosion and collapse was bad,
just wait for the US to meet its climatic national implosion maybe next mid
