'Bea's Timepiece'

Concerning the "end of days", I do not believe that this world will end its existence in December, 2012.  Nor do I believe that it will mark the end of mankind's existence on this earth.  But I do believe that we will see and experience changes unlike any we have experienced before.  What does that mean exactly?  I'm not sure, but I do believe we are going to experience natural catastrophies and astrological phenomenon in the coming year or two that will be new experiences for humans in this modern time.  Many might die, many might wish they were dead.  Many will survive.  Life will go on after these occurances.

I'm not a doomsdayist, nor do I really consider myself a psychic.  However, I have a deep instinct that this earth will undergo some drastic changes, probably directly related to "global climate change" and mankind will be affected by these changes.  These changes will result in mankind doing things differently than in the past.  I'm not hoping for bad things to happen to humans, but we should have started doing things differently a long time ago, and maybe we could have avoided the catastrophies that are coming our way.  But since we didn't bring about the changes ourselves, we need to be shaken enough to make the changes happen now, if not by choice, than by necessity for survival of our species and the rest of the species that will be left living on this planet.  Man has proven himself to be ignorant and short-sighted in the past, but I believe that way of living will change in the not-so-distant future.

'N.R.I.:  New Republican Icon' 

The Supreme Court ruled that the Affordable Care Act, or "Obamacare" was constitutional, and yet, the Republicans in the House of Representatives have taken more time to have a vote on repealing it.  I have to ask, "Why not use the time to pass job-creating legislation?"  Why do the Republicans in Congress waste more of our time with these ridiculous shenanigans of political obstructionism.  The Republicans are now represented by their acts of wastefulness.  Not only wasting time, but look at the money that is being wasted by the Republicans in both chambers on this nonsense.

As an analogy, Republicans in Congress are like rats in the attic.  The rats in the attic make noise, so you know they are there, but you also know they will only bring destruction by way of their chewing and defacating, not to mention the fleas and parasites and disease that they carry.  But unlike rats in the attic who can be trapped or poisoned, Republicans in Congress can only be gotten rid of by voting them out of office.

The hypocrisy of these Republicans is beyond reproach.  While the Republicans want to do away with "healthcare for all", they have some of the best healthcare in the world, provided and paid for by the very citizens that they want to deny coverage to.  And the association of linking "Obamacare" with socialism just piles on more ignorance on top of the outrageous hypocrisy and wastefulness.  The use of the word "socialism" to describe the Affordable Care Act only proves that many in Congress and on the right-wing have absolutely no understanding of Socialism.  NONE!  I've said it before and I'll say it again, there is nothing socialistic about the Affordable Care Act.  It is a healthcare plan for a corporate capitalistic society, and it is not "universal"  because it does not provide coverage to 100% of the population of citizenry.  If Barack Obama was a Socialist, he would have taken over control of all health insurance companies, and all major hospitals, made them an entity of our government and started providing ALL citizens with free healthcare.  THAT would be Socialism!!!

We the people have to deal with the "rats in the attic" this November and that means only one thing--vote every Republican in Congress OUT OF OFFICE!  Then, we could see a Congress that was not only willing to focus on creating jobs for the citizens of our Country, but also able to address many of the issues that we as a "superpower" should focus on.  Issues like fortifying our infrastructure, creating a truly universal healthcare system, ending earth-fracturing("fracking"), promoting cleaner modes of transportation that do not rely on fossil fuels, and so much more that needs to be addressed for the sake of making progress for the citizens of our society.  We should be a role model for the rest of the world.  But that cannot happen until we get rid of the rats in the attic.

'Looks Like Twister Weather'

I have never experienced so many severe thunderstorms than I have this summer.  I do believe they are a result of the affects of global warming.  And I believe that global warming is directly caused by the actions of mankind.  Actions of oil drilling, coal mining, clear-cutting of forests, and fracturing of this earth for the sake of capturing more natural gas (marketed by the natural gas industry as "fracking").  All of these actions bring with them their own pollution that is helping to kill this earth.  All of these industries have so much influence within the realm of politics that it would take a miracle to halt these devastating practices, much less just bring tighter regulations.  I see no hope within sight, no light at the end of the tunnel, no savior for change, and certainly no self-imposed responsibility by these earth-raping industries.

I have posted about global warming many times in the past, so today is just more venting for me as I know my words will not have any influence on anyone, just people who will agree or disagree with me.  All the while, the raping and ravaging of this earth will continue and will only end when man has completely destroyed this planet to a point where it can no longer be inhabited.  I do believe the worst is yet to come.  The humans that are able to survive to the end are truly going to be living in hell on this earth.
