Well it seems another week has come and gone (and pretty quickly too) and if you believe what some folks are saying this could be the last one we are going to have to worry about. Yep, there is a group of people out there who are predicting tomorrow is TEOTWAWKI. Heck, I think TEOTWAWKI has already begun. Most folks just haven't figured it out yet. The times they are a'changin' to be sure.
BUT, back to the May 21,2011. Unless you have been living under a rock or something you have probably already heard that these folks believe that tomorrow at 6:00PM that the "Rapture" will occur. Now I'm not really sure if that is Central, Pacific or Eastern time... but my guess is that it's not really going to be an issue. Hmmm.... Maybe I should finish up that ice cream in the freezer? Oh and while I'm at it I have a few Snickerdoodles left....I'd really hate for all that to go to waste.
It looks like this will be the Summer of the Cicada's. After a 13 year sleep, they are back. Cicada's are some scary looking bugs. Creepy! I remember the last time they all came out of hiding. That was one LOUD summer. The sound was almost deafening at times. I could still hear them in the house with the air conditioner on and the TV cranked up as high as I could stand it and could still hear them "singing". They were THAT loud. When I was a kid I remember finding their shells on the trees and using them for decorations on my shirt! LOL It used to freak my mom out! Oh, wait... that was when I would sneak up behind her and put them in her hair!!
Are you ready for the Zombie Apocalypse? The Center for Disease Control put out a Zombie Warning this week. And you thought my tin foil hat was on a bit too tight? I TOLD you there were Zombies!
A second town in Vermont passed a Food Sovereignty Bill this month. "Food sovereignty is expressed as the “right to save seed, grow, process, consume and exchange food and farm products.” I think we should all follow their lead all across America. Our right to choose what we eat and how it is processed (or unprocessed) should be our decision. If I want to drink raw milk who am I harming? And who is the government to dictate what I can and cannot feed myself and my family? Apparently the FDA doesn't agree. Just ask the Amish folks at the Rainbow Acres Farm.
Do you remember Government class? You know..... Back when they taught Government as a core class. You know, one of those classes you had to take to graduate? We studied this...
"The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized."
Sound familiar? If not, let me remind you that is our 4th Amendment. Remember the Constitution? Apparently the Supreme Court doesn't. In Indiana this week the Supreme Court ruled that if a police officer wants to come into your house for ANY reason you now have NO RIGHT to resist or refuse entry into your home. It doesn't matter if there is a warrant or not. They don't even need probable cause.
Our POTUS has apparently turned his back on Israel this week. Say what you will, nothing good can or will come of this. It just might even be the thing that leads us into WWIII. Who knows.....
I think I'm going to take the next couple of days off. If tomorrow does happen to be the last day I think I'm going to go on and finish up that bit of chocolate cake. I wouldn't want to leave it for the Zombie's.
