Underwater Bitchezzz!!!

Underwater, indeed.  I remember the floods of 1993.  I was doing a lot of traveling in southern and western Minnesota.  It was just unbelievable to see mile after mile of farm fields that looked like lakes.  It persisted for weeks.  At one point we actually saw some farmer trying to dry his field using some burning technique.  I don't know if that worked.  The people were distraught but they kept their heads up.  It was no New Orleans scene.  They still helped each other the best they could.  Maybe there were some extra government subsidies.  I don't know.  But it sure was sad to see all the devastation.

I got out of the subway today at City Hall.  I think there was an assault taking place.  It had just taken place.  Something wrong had definitely happened.  Of course there were dozens of NYPD vehicles around and not a cop in sight.  I guess they were keeping the world safe by checking bags.  God love 'em.  I sure hope I don't have to count on them if / when TSHTF.

It was an extraordinary time, a lot of bridges were wiped out. And crops. I see  a lot of water in ditches these days. Those ditches should look dry, maybe a trickle in the bottom, barely. The rivers are higher than usual for mid-Summer, too.


Know who does best at grain futures? Weathermen. The trading is driven by weather and who knows the coming patterns better?

...not the way it goes down this time, you shall see. Laugh now Bitchez but, ''as in the Days of Noah'' is the image of this last generation. Everything in the Bible is coming to pass. Just wait for the prophetic false peace with Israel and all the nations, if you still have doubt about how much time this last generation has left. 

Just get yourself set in order and in agreement with the sustaining offer ...or perish as you will.

Every person that has predicted the end of the world has been wrong.  Most of the people I know that count themselves righteous would make the Wall Street guys seem like decent human beings. 

There has never been a generation of humans that didn't have a ton of stuff that they could have said signified the end was near.  So, have a few beers and lighten up, Francis.

dude, the end is very near. you are just using your human sense of time, by using a galactic scale. poof you are gone (humans that is). you mortals are so egocentric.

The Bible does not predict the end of the simply identifies the prevailing circumstances of that time.

Ah, the Bible.  Starts out with a talking snake, ends with a four-headed monster.  Non-fiction at its best.

I like the story about the guy living in the whale but had to move out because the whale was being converted to condos.

...risen from the dust or swallowed by a Whale, your shits still in the wind troop. Back to the black hole for you huh? ...and how did you rise from nothing again? Oh yeah, you don't know and revelation is still a choice for you, as you claim dominion based on ''nothing''. Pathetic. Wise up, learn the parable of the Fig Tree and enjoy theleaves bitchez.

Your reference is to Jonah, and there is no mention of a whale.  Just like there is no mention of an apple in the Garden of Eden, no mention of there being three wise men, no mention of Mary's mother, nor a bunch of other secular add-ons.

So, if you have been misled about something so supposedly universal as Jonah being in a whale, or that there were three wise men, what other truth might be revealed to you if you would pick up the Bible and READ IT?

Surely, you are praying to Allah.  Either that or you are going to hell.  Just ask any Muslim before they kill you for being an infidel, at God's insistence.

It really comes down to nothing more than the children of light or of darkness. It is that simple. Do strive for the light or seek darkness? Are your thoughts about helping things to live or seeking death? It is a simple choice. I choose the light. Many thoughful and kind people have been taught that only death brings paradise. Life is paradise.

...well, if you wish to know, just do a Bible search and you will find out. Type in something about ''gold'' and ''will not save them'' or something. 

MRE's and a nice view of the storm Bitchez. Just wait, you will see in the coming months a ''sudden'' ''change'' or Rahm Co. ''crisis'' that will not go to waste. You still need some short term gain, buy smart city Agenda 21 RFID related security stocks. Talk about a no brain'r.

I don't know about other parts of the country but around here, corn was late in the ground and it looks bad.

Late in the ground here (Illinois corn country) as well, but has recovered nicely (head high in most fields).

Just drove through mid Minnesota corn country over the weekend. Beautiful knee-high green tops as far as the eye can see. We've had generous rainfall, but the Mississip is not in danger from ruining any of it as far as I can tell. I can smell the E85 fumes and taste the HFCS and it's only the beginng of July.

This is the third consecutive year with the same prediction of moderate to major flooding in those areas.

My brother is plugged into the US ag community and was very surprised by the crop report last week.  Because the planting of corn was so late in the Midwest, it is not as mature as it needs to be this time of the year, i.e. knee high by the 4th of July.  The danger is that the corn crop will freeze this fall before it matures.  "Don't count your chickens before they hatch."

You ZH'ers already have this one figured out.  It is Clarence Beeks and those damn Duke Brothers that are behind that crop report.  I saw them at Delmonico's a little while ago sipping on martinis with a harem of hookers.  Life is good when the game is fixed and you're the guys doing the fixing.

Not only that, but here in Texas I drove by a ton of corn fields this weekend that were completely dead from the drought conditions.  Knee-high but brown and wilted.
