Mankind will have whatever we need to survive as long as the earth is here in it's present form........That's been promised to us in the Bible..........Keeping that in mind, know that mankind will not be who destroys this earth...........That, too, is Biblical.........

What is getting worse is the number of people with immoral behavior...........And, technology is one of the temptations which is contributing.........Mankind without the one-and only real moral authority will not resist the temptations which are gaining in number.........People are being fooled into worshiping immorality..........And, that is gonna be the downfall of mankind on this earth............None of our necessities will be extinguished.........All Biblical...........

If "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof...", then the inverse is true: A religion shall not form a government. #SeperationOfChurchAndState #GoogleItKids
Islam is a system of laws that it seeks to impose upon non believers. It is a hostile military force. Islam shd in no way enjoy protection as a "religion" under the 1A.

In 350 years we've burned through a half a billion years of stored sunlight (coal, oil, natural gas) that was easy to extract.  Our planet's fossil fuel reserves won't come back on any time scale that matters to human beings.  Now we are working our way through the stuff that's more difficult to get, even with our latest energy-intensive extraction technologies. That will run its course shortly. Perhaps 50 years.

The world's first fossil-fueled human civilization is guaranteed to be its last.

I've been reading Ken Follett's latest book, A Column of Fire. In many ways, especially food, transportation, and energy, our civilization will be reverting to the way of life of the 1500's, with a mix of sustainable technologies from the 1800's and 1900's.  Nothing 'invented' or 'created' from the 2000's will be useful in the years to come.

Running an Empire like ours takes tremendous wealth. After depleting their own resources, Empires have always created offshore wealth pumps to continue the flow of resources, goods, and labor to the Empire to support it's relentless 'growth'. Of course, these wealth pumps always draw down the foreign resources until they no longer can supply the needed wealth. Then the Empire abandons that source and looks for new ones. Here's an interesting tidbit regarding our American Empire's global reach in search of wealth pumps.


"The United States military gets around. There are the countries with which it’s gone to war – Iraq, Germany, and Japan. There are countries it helps protect – Turkey, Poland, and Bahrain. And there are countries most people don’t even know that America sends troops to, like Thailand, Pakistan, and Antarctica.

There are so many countries.  Roughly 195.

There are only three countries in the world America hasn’t invaded or have never seen a U.S. military presence: Andorra, Bhutan, and Liechtenstein."

US population is 1988 was 244 million people. 30 years later, in 2018 the US population will be roughly 327 million people. Including stats on births, deaths, and immigrants, we have a net gain of a new person every 15 seconds.
We may be at 400 million people in the US when our kids are our age. The true costs of supporting a population of 400 million on our land base are totally unsustainable. 
The answer to this disaster isn't murdering babies. The answer is to stop irresponsible mating. Allowing people to breed like we do now is unsustainable. We need to promote adoption. 
The resident libs will be outraged by this proposal, and no doubt claim it's racist. As is usual with them, they will also have no realistic counter proposal, other than to keep murdering babies, and call it 'choice'. Libs are like precocious children; lots of emotional outbursts and tantrums, but not too grounded in the true costs and realities of their desires.

Agree.  Adoption was a way more responsible answer to the solution. 

In 1998 some friends adopted a black baby, raised her to be a great kid.  That was their first baby.  Then they had 2 of there own.  They always had at least one foster child. 

8 years after the first adoption, they had a foster child and wanted to adopt.  Was another black child.  Whelp low and behold.  libtard duhvernment decided that having white middle-lower class families adopt black babies was racial misappropriation or some sh1t.   That the black baby should be raised black.  That baby was actually whie mom and black dad, so only half black.  There were no black families wanting a baby at the time.  So the kicked that poor baby back into the foster system. 

That baby ended back at their house.  This cycle repeated about every 2 years.   Family Services would make noise in a review that the baby had been in their house for too long and was becoming attached.  They would make noise about moving the baby.  Family would try to adopt.  Loads of lawyers, loads of money spent.  Family Services would take the baby away, put it in a group home.   The family would reapply for foster care, get that same baby back.  16 years of that.  When the baby got to be 16 years old, the family finally was able to adopt the baby.  Family Services realized that baby was old enough to make it's own choice.  Little girl never knew anything but those people as her parents.  

Total agenda narrative wreck of a mess.  Very sad to watch it all.

This earth is 4-6000k years old. This earth has been in an ebb and flow of creation and destruction for eons under the design of our creator long before our happy asses were created. People act like they are something unique and somehow have some great value. Under only limited circumstances do they offer anything of value to God. Yes he loves us, yes he wishes the best from us, and wishes for our salvation, but more often than not we fail, and are just failed creatures breathing oxygen. We are future biomass. It is a very narrow path, and even with an earnest request in the name of the savior, most will fall short of the glory that God offers. We are weak pathetic creatures unable to turn away from our selfishness, and simply ask in all humility forgiveness of our sins in the name of Christ. I ask for forgiveness everyday, but fear that even though I really mean it, that it is just a hollow vessel I use to offer myself some semblance of reassurance that I might live after death. I fear we are all not going to fare well at the white throne judgement.

Whether you like his politics or not, Steve Bannon is a very smart dude. He sees an Empire in Decline.  He is exactly right to recognize the undeniable parallels.





"The Romans, Bannon gleans from Gibbon, “[Are] the people most like us. … They built this great empire and how it all slipped away over time.  

Bannon sees striking parallels in present-day America. Key to Gibbon’s depiction are the steady corrosion of the core virtues, and, while the term was still centuries from being coined, “social capital” of the Roman Empire by mass uncontrolled immigration, decadence among the elite, and the loss of cohesion around societal institutions with the rise of what Arnold Toynbee would describe – 140 years later – as the Empire’s “internal proletariat” of early Christianity.

The civic virtue of “melting pot”-era America, was enough to assimilate controlled immigration – the first waves of barbarians to the Roman citizenship 212 A.D.’s Edict of Caracalla granted them. But those barbarians came, in Gibbon’s view and Bannon’s, to overwhelm the capacity of the society to subsume them, like the unchecked mass of often-illegal third world immigration threatens to do to America today. And that “overrunning” of the Empire’s values at its frontiers was matched by the abandonment of them at its heart, among its elites.

The Roman Senate “was bought and paid for by the elites. … The exact thing we face today!” he exclaimed. “What the Roman Empire faced is exactly what we face, that you lose the citizenship — and the power of citizenship — of the Roman Republic, you become an Empire, and that empire becomes a massive concentration of power and wealth, which is detached from the people. And then eventually, you’re having people who don’t want to serve in the legions, you have to go for foreign soldiers. Everybody is a mercenary. And therefore, no one really stood up or was prepared to die, really, in service to the country. And then what happened? Wave, after wave, after wave of migrations from the Goths, the Visigoths, the Huns. Coming into the empire and changing the culture and destroying the civic society they had in Rome. The empire could not withstand it.”

One of the most dangerous results of techno-industrialization is that human consciousness is disengaging from our evolutionary biological roots.

Examples: We now 'process' information; when d1ckheads like fresh are babbling their nonsense, we say they are 'taking up too much bandwidth'; we go on vacation to get some 'down time'.

Not long ago, barnyard metaphors made sense to our human consciousness: foxes guarding the henhouse, chickens coming home to roost, grown children leaving the nest. 

I would posit that this shift is bad; it makes it easy to marginalize and dismiss concerns about the global environmental degradation, it disconnects us from our fellow humans, it is a symptom of the decline of Empire.
