    I don't believe the world or us as a people will end 2012 or any time after.
    How ever 2012 could be the time or the beginning of the Tribulation. Which time 7 years will be marked. If this is so are there those that will be able to survive?
    Let's face it for those of us that study the word of God and more so the end time prophecies, Mans way that we are in right now will not last forever. How scary of a time for those with out understand. What a exciting time for those with.

    Not saying or trying to imply I understand or know anything, I am how ever smart enough to get a grasp of who the 10 kingdoms are and they are well established. Well there are 12 for now.

    Silly GOP! They know not what they do. It's never a good idea to eliminate or streamline the checks and balances that are supposed to be built into place.

    IMO this is a bad idea.

    House Dems protest GOP’s plans for permanent war against terror

    Nearly three dozen House Democrats are calling on Republicans to withdraw a section of the 2012 defense authorization bill that they say would effectively declare a state of permanent war against unnamed Taliban and al Qaeda operatives.

    A Tuesday letter from House Judiciary Committee Chairman John Conyers Jr. (D-Mich.) and 32 other Democrats argues that affirming continued war against terrorist forces goes too far, giving too much authority to the president without debate in Congress.

    Their letter cites language in the authorization bill that incorporates the Detainee Security Act, which affirms continued armed conflict against terrorists overseas.

    “By declaring a global war against nameless individuals, organizations and nations ‘associated’ with the Taliban and al Qaeda, as well as those playing a supporting role in their efforts, the Detainee Security Act would appear to grant the president near unfettered authority to initiate military action around the world without further congressional approval,” Democrats wrote. “Such authority must not be ceded to the president without careful deliberation from Congress.”

    The specific language in the bill is found in section 1034 of H.R. 1540, which affirms that the U.S. is “engaged in an armed conflict with al Qaeda, the Taliban and associated forces.” It also affirms that the president has the authority to detain “certain belligerents” until the armed conflict is over.

    “Al Qaeda, the Taliban and associated forces still pose a grave threat to U.S. national security,” the bill says. “The Authorization for Use of Military Force necessarily includes the authority to address the continuing and evolving threat posed by these groups.”

    The title is slanted, but overall yeah. 2012 here we come! GOP president, unilateral power to declare war.

    Remember, WWII brought us out of the depression. So this is just really a fiscal policy update.
