i was watchin the tube tonight and the show had "scientists" talkin bout how the sun-living barrier (perfect relationship/orientation of earth to the sun in our solar system) was slowly shifting towards earth.........soon it would surpass earth and all life would end up having to "get off the planet," "humans weren't made to settle down in one spot." so i got to thinkin, and did a little research via the good ol' internet. it seems that startin in 1930 the central plains region held a drought for 7 or so years, crops burnt up, temps were hoverin in the 100s, and massive storms picked up the topsoil and took it hundreds of miles away. it was the beginning of the Great Depression, and the early, EARLY beginning to WWII. jobs were lost, or given up, rather. people were starvin, and there was no end in sight. then the "New Deal" came along and STILL didn't make too much of a dent. the news of today makes the current situations out to be worse than they really are, but AMERICA has been through it before and didn't give up. let's all keep our chins up and prepare for the worst, cuz **** HITTIN THE FAN IS MOST LIKELY UPON US @ THIS POINT.............IF THIS KEEPS UP. UNITED WE STAND, DIVIDED WE FALL!!!
