By having no control over things, I meant more like Planet X flying by, or a comet getting to close, or the sun erupting with super mass ejections, or Earths crust shifting or our galaxy entering a new field of energy or the sun putting out new types of rays that change matter. Stuff like that that no one can control.
I agree with your farmland comments. Food prices will be going through the ceiling pretty soon. And they'll be able to blame it on Mother Nature. Over 1,000 tornado's this year.
Yeah you're right about them picking the wrong way to promote things. It always kills me when "presidents" say we're spreading democracy and freedom around the world. Those two words CANNOT go together, no more than Christians against Christ can. And we were never founded as a democracy, so they're just admitting they're a bunch of communists in my opinion, since democracy is the stepping stone to communism.
I don't see how they can dumb down people any more, but it appears they think it's possible. Once the stuff hits the fan, I think there will be a great awakening for eveyone though.
