RALEIGH, N.C. (World News) — Forget the speculation that the end of the world will occur on December 12, 2012 as the end of the Mayan calendar. An independent Christian groups in the U.S. even predicted the end will come more quickly: 21 May 2011.
Is Marie Exley, a U.S. Army veteran who campaigned heavily this doomsday warning. Exley is a member of the U.S. independent churches that preach through radio broadcasts and the Internet. This church group claim to base her prediction on the Bible.
They are aggressively spreading the message of doom through billboards, benches at bus stops, the caravan, and mobilize volunteers distribute pamphlets in various corners of the city, from Bridgeport to Little Rock, Arkansas. To spread the message outside the U.S., they even have a group of volunteers who would go around Africa and Latin America.
“Many people might think: the end will come, let’s celebrate. But our Lord commanded to give a warning,” said Exley. “I could be like everyone else, but it is better to know when the apocalypse comes, you know, you will be safe.”
In August, Exley left her home in Colorado Springs, to work at a community radio in Oakland, California. Radio is radio Christian ministry headed by Harold Camping – the person most responsible for this version of end times prophecy.
“If you still want to say we’re crazy, please. But it never hurts to see this message,” Exley said.
The variant to the old shell game is still around. These cranks who switch shells play with our credulity and tell us “If you still want to say we’re crazy, please. But it never hurts to see this message,” Any one who think he can predict the end times must be God or a crank. Since I know whom I believed I would say Pastor Exley ought to have her head examined.In all probability she is still suffering post trauma of her army career. Why should loonies take to play shell game, I cannot say.
We are shell shocked as she is.
Jo’s Requiem-by Ernest Rhys(1859-1946)
He had the plowman’s strength
in the grasp of his hand:
He could see a crow
three miles away,
and the trout beneath the stone.
He could hear the green oats growing,
And the south-west wind making rain.
He could hear the wheel upon the hill
when it left the level road.
He could make a gate, and dig a pit,
And plow as straight as stone can fill
And he is dead.
Corruption in india hit a high note with a family trying to grab everything it could while the going was good. But how long?
DMK with its symbol of the Rising Sun was once a force to reckon with in Tamil Nadu politics. The recent election in Tamil Nadu gave its verdict. The cartoon reflects the popular feeling of outrage of citizens at the out and out criminality of the Party. Thiru Karunanidhi and his ministers took oath to set an example of Indian democratic traditions under their watch. But then it was an occasion for them to make corruption a state policy. If the party has been now utterly routed in the polls only they were to blame.
Leda and the Swan-W.B Yeats
A sudden blow: the great wings beating still
Above the staggering girl, her thighs caressed
By the dark webs, her nape caught in his bill,
He holds her helpless breast upon his breast.
How can those terrified vague fingers push
The feathered glory from her loosening thighs?
And how can body, laid in that white rush,
But feel the strange heart beating where it lies?
A shudder in the loins engenders there
The broken wall, the burning roof and tower
And Agamemnon dead.
Being so caught up,
So mastered by the brute blood of the air
Did she put on his knowledge with his power
Before the indifferent beak could let her drop?
Beloved, may your sleep be sound
That have found it where you fed.
What were all the world’s alarums
To mighty Paris when he found
Sleep upon a golden bed
That first dawn in Helen’s arms?
Sleep, beloved such a sleep
As did that wild Tristram know
When,the potion’s work being done,
Roe could run or doe could leap
Under oak and beechen bow,
Roe could leap or doe could run;
Such a sleep and sound as fell
Upon Eurotas’ grassy bank
When the holy bird, and there
Accomplished his predestined will,
From the limbs of Leda sank
But not from her protective care.
