Happy “Rapture” Eve. There has been a lot in the news today regarding all things disturbing. Harold Camping and his prediction about tomorrow are as realistic as Obama’s idea to revert back to ’67 borders in Israel. Camping has no idea how many people he suckered into a bad night’s sleep and Barack Obama is completely out of touch with reality if he believes for a second that Israel would be safe, based on the vision he has.

This has been a very odd week. It’s been an odd year. I find it very difficult to wrap my mind around what is going on in America and to a greater effect the entire globe.

After posting on this blog for nine months and receiving comments and feedback, following news closely from both completely contradictory sides, and following my own heart and beliefs, I have found that this country is simply divided up the middle. I think Barack Obama is the wrong man for the job at this current time and circumstance, but there is exactly one other person who completely disagrees with me. Whatever your opinion is, exactly one other person in this country thinks you are as absurd as you think they are. We are a nation divided 1:1 and I don’t think anyone can argue otherwise. A ratio like that, marginalizing unity, is not what America was intended to be.

Harold Camping does not give me goose bumps; Barack Obama does.

1,306.0 miles to go.


  1. I think the nation began to be divided when the Iraq war began. And I think what furthered this divide was the 24 hour cable news and talk radio "opinion generators". Instead of putting people on to blast politicians for recent decisions, I think the time would be better spent telling history and better educating the public. What is the history of Israel and Palestine? Why is this conflict so complicated?


  2. That's a good point. The history digs deep to where we are today, and in a perfect world we should all be required to know it. But that is unfortunately not the case. At face value I think Israel is yet another middle eastern problem that many Americans don't want to deal with. But at the same time, I think the global consequences of being so naive as to push for '67 borders and to contribute to Israel's demise is immeasurably wrong.
