Actually, the NOAA guys have determined that it will pass well south. no need to spread false panic.

Meantime, this was, quite obviously, well over the heads of the Capitalist corporation technologies! Obama should be damning them and their pitiable technological incapabilites. Let's hope someone can get this one under control.

Else, every offshore oil rig out there, which have all been struck by lightning many times, would all explode!

Get sensible, folks!

We need calm rationale, not religious or political fervour, driven by bitter, old allegiances.

Default Please...read this article...

...........

"The fragile US economy, in the midst of a feeble attempt at a jobless recovery, overstretched by war and out of control spending is not equipped to handle a disaster of this magnitude. No country in the world could. Remember how well they handled the Katrina thing? This makes Katrina look like a grade school fire drill. Well I wonder how well they will do this time as they prepare to evacuate entire cities and states. See this and this. Once the evacuations begin the markets will tank. Once people are forced to grasp what is happening around them the global economy will come to a screeching halt as it's engine, the USA, sinks into the throes of the worst environmental disaster in the history of the world. This will cause a dollar confidence crisis. Enraged citizens will riot and loot with no hope of a decent life ahead of them. Martial law will be declared."

Go read message #1, god is mentioned, but it is not religious post, it is a justifiable rant about the environmental disaster happening in the OP back yard, and the obvious incompetence and blatant unwillingness of BP to react to the level they should.
Quoting myself yea yea ......

But I am doing so as I was wrong, the thread is in the correct forum, a conclusion I have come to after reviewing all the paranoia, hysteria, and outrageous conclusions.
  • It happened because Obama withdraws support for Israel and now god is mad..... Really
  • The entire region will be destroyed when lightening ignites the methane.....nonsense
  • It happened because America doesn't pray enough, well they certainly prey enough.
  • Links to sites about repenting to a deity or the country is toast ........

It is really too bad the facts are so obscured by the hysteria, as Verna brings a lot of information to light, stuff those of us not on the Gulf don't hear or see, as we just get the little snippets that MSM doles out on the evening news. And of course neither BP nor the government are telling the whole story.

The cause, corporate greed empowered by the Bush administration and their sweet heart legislation that virtually allow the oil industry to regulate itself with literally no oversight. Thanks to Bush/Cheney the fox was guarding the hen house.

Also, you should be more gentle in your choice of words: "disgusting, dangerous, irresponsible and reprehensible" describe many things one can read on the internet (including at this forum, sad to say ), but Verna's post is not one of them!

Blessings
What I believe is the the blessing was not on the physical seed of Abraham but on the Spiritual ---- In 70AD the physical was left desolate -- the physical was a type, a shadow..........

Of course the 'tracks' of a thread being moved disappear after some time, but I remember seeing the "moved" indicator, and even the OP has been confused by something that was changed, perhaps combined with another thread?

I agree.it's the old 'blame it on God' (or rather in in this case,'by proxy of the President' scenario).republicans are SOOO quick to jump the gun! yet recall all the times we have stood behind Israel!! God would have to not only be a pretty shallow God to do that (bc the Pres. said we would not AUTOMATICALLY support Israel)...he would also have to be quite forgetful as well!!

BUT CAN WE GET TO THE REAL ISSUE HERE???

If anything I think God is telling us that He made the layers of the earth that way for a reason....and they are not to be messed with!!!
