Doomsday Dashboard

Published

The Doomsday Preppers are ready for a variety of cataclysmic disasters that could mean the end of the world as we know it. But which end-of-the-world scenario are we all really worried about? Using Twitter, we are mining the chatter to see what is at the forefront of the public’s collective consciousness. Will it be a megaquake, economic collapse, global pandemic, a 2012 cataclysm, nuclear war, solar-flare-induced power failures, or an extreme oil crisis that leads to the unraveling of society? Check back to see what the masses are saying, and see which catastrophe is on top of the Doomsday Dashboard.

Those of you who are afraid of the Flu, as well you should be, H1N1, H1N9, and all of tomorrow's strains to come . . .  KNOW THIS.   The worse thing that happens to our bodies when we are infected with the Spanish, Bird, or Swine Flu strains is inflammation (our cells desperately trying to fight the invader), and then bleeding - internal bleeding.  Our blood vessels are greatly compromised with this disease, and when there's irritation, there's inflammation.  You've probably seen pictures of poor victims coughing up blood from bleeding lungs, and even bleeding out through their skin and eyes.  

Happily, there is a simple solution, one that Big Pharma doesn't want us to know about - (actually, they might not even know about it, yet, and let's hope they don't find out).  There is an easy to acquire and  inexpensive organic compound, when taken regularly, builds and strengthens our blood vessels.  So, if you are unfortunate enough to catch the Flu, you will most surely not die from it.  And, your symptoms will be milder and shorter.  This compound is Vitamin C, which strengthens blood vessels to the point where  they can defend against the natural inflammation brought on by disease, and not leak, during a flu invasion, for example.  There are other benefits from Vitamin C that provide daily advantages.  You can "read all about it" (until crony government-controlled "healthcare" censors it) by accessing Dr. Rima Laibow's report posted here:  http://drrimatruthreports.com/resources/newsletter/pandemicflu/

You also need to know about the unprecedented benefits, only recently discovered, regarding what they are calling Vitamin D3.  D3 is actually a hormone, not a vitamin; a hormone in which most people in the world suffer a deficiency.  Ask yourself this . . why are Fall and Winter "Flu seasons"?  

We've all heard about the sun on our skin producing "Vitamin D".  Well, logic tells us that we get less sunshine during the Winter months, right?  

Vitamin D slowly accumulates in our bodies.  So, if we don't get enough of it during the Summer, we're more likely to "catch" the Flu during the Winter.  Statistics tell us that most of the world's population is greatly deficient in "Vitamin D".  Let me again take this opportunity to point a finger at Big Pharma (the pharmaceutical industry . . . the third largest industry in the world; third only to #1 Food, and #2 Energy). Their continued insistence that we use "sunscreen" all of the time . . at the beach, in our moisturizers, make-up, and even in hair products, greatly decreases our production of Vitamin D.  An aside here . . creams do not moisturize our skin nearly as well as drinking water does.  

People, we are not stupid.  We are only "ill"-informed.  If we get sick, who do we turn to first . . Big Pharma.  "PLEASE, let my insurance provide a pill to cure me."  What we are being deprived of, by powerful commercial brainwashing, is our ability to AVOID disease and discomfort.  Perhaps that is the intention.  Nuf said, be informed, act and judge for yourself.

THE most probable secenario is a Nuclear or biological attack on America.. Their are now numerous countries with Nuclear capability who are hostile to America..The threat of the Islamic Fundamentalist is very real,, dont forger 911, the first world trade center bombing and the Boston Marathon..America has been under attack for years...Nature is also a very real threat..I live in NY and was in the Middle of Hurricane Sandy..I had friends whos homes were destroyed and looting was happpening daily.. The NYC Police Dept did a great job, but their was only so much they could do...I brought food and water to peoples homes who werent prepared,, being a survivalist I WAS PREPARED.. The people that called me crazy before Hurricane Sandy were very thankful for the preparations I had made..Their will not be a doomsday,, what their will be is hard times,, thats part of life,, so be smart and be prepared.

I think it may start with a retraction of the existing commodities market. Sometimes marketing influences are more complex than just the law of supply and demand. Kenisian economic theories are outdated and don't include modern influences on existing markets.
