Are We Approaching A War

Lol, one writer has this idea and you believe it.  There are many more writers that have documented that the statue meant liberty as in the freedom of all people.  That story is bunk imo

Maybe so. Mystery Babylon exist somewhere. You asked. It gave a detailed description of that pagan deity and all the different names it had with different civilizations. Revelation mentions that all the worlds merchants were distraught at the collapse of Mystery Babylon. Can you name another country or land that was present during Johns time that is known for it’s consumption of good? I can’t. I mean America is known for our vast appetite for consumption of goods. I’m sure when God gave John his vision he was a little startled we had a gigantic statue in a port dedicated to the goddess of prostitution. That’s through his eyes. Hey. I’m 40 with 5 gives. Nobody hopes it’s not true more than me. To many coincidences for my taste. I’m a believer though so I’m swayed by the Bible.

She’s actually a statue of the goddess Ishtar. Goddess of prostitution. John received his vision and was probably pretty shocked we had an Idol dedicated to the goddess of prostitution in our harbor. 

I don't know where you got your information, but she is modeled after the Roman Goddess of Liberty :  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Libertas  .  Some have said he used his mother as model, and others have said Columbia and Liberty that was used on many American coins at that time.  I have many Liberty eagle coins that were used as far back as 1792 and is still used for silver  American Eagles today.  I prefer the Morgan Silver dollars, and while it has not been stated I would not doubt that they were based on the Liberty statue that was raised the year before in New York Harbor.  They begin being minted in 1877.

They are one in the same. Libertas is her Latin name. Egyptian name is Isis. 

Isis is not the goddess of Liberty, but being the mother of Egypt, healing, magic, wisdom, sky, wisdom, and protector of the kingdom.  Liberty looks nothing like her.

I believe we will have a cold war with China in the future if not now. 

They've already declared it, and made it official yesterday.  https://www.washingtonpost.com/world/asia_pacific/china-tells-us-to-stop-taking-them-to-the-brink-of-a-new-cold-war/2020/05/24/4eda6ffc-9da9-11ea-9d96-c3f7c755fd6e_story.html

If you bow down and worship the Statue of Liberty, then you need to start worrying

I see it as a work of art meant to symbolize freedom and liberty.  Only in recent years has she been depicted as being one that advocates illegal immigration by the left because of Emma Lazurus poem there.  Liberty Island is close to Ellis Island, but they are in no way connected.

The person that wrote that article didn’t even put his name to it.  I looked in it, couldn’t find it.  He was real proud.  He seemed to be anti-mason as well.  Lots of misinformation in that article.

There’s always someone trying to rewrite history.  Before long the liberals will want it torn down probably.  They’ll find something offensive about the statue

Didn’t say it wasn’t named after Libertas. Read the article. It was pretty detailed.

Who said anything about bowing down? I asked you to see it through John’s eyes. He’s sitting there on Patmos and gets a look at that, he’s going to describe it the best he can. The same with Ezekiel, Daniel, and many other of Gods prophets. Name one country today that the merchants of the world would cry over its destruction. I can’t. Mystery Babylon is out there. I’d say we are near the top of the potential candidates.

I don’t find the statue offensive at all. I’m simply pointing out what John may have seen in his vision.

Rather we like it or not many countries pander to China either directly or indirectly.  The bulk of the iron ore that is mined in Western Australia and Brazil is sent to China.  The bulk of the metallurgical coal that is mined in Canada goes to China to make coke for the steel mills.  Guess where a lot of the copper that is mined ends up?  The US and Europe manufacturers of mining equipment are feeding off of the supply chain to China.

If the Chinese market is growing that means they are buying iron to produce facilities.  If they are using iron ore then they are using coal.  If they are building then they need copper for the wiring.  If they are building then their economy is growing then they will need industrial grade diamonds for machining, etc. which primarily come from Africa.  If the economy is growing then they need platinum, gold, and other metals for cell phones and other technologies.  China needs to continue to "grow" because the US economy cannot sustain the growth required.  It is truly a global economy where everything is intertwined.

There is too much in-fighting in the US to get anything done.  Just look at mining in the US.  It is disappearing.  If Hilary would have been elected president if would be dead.

From my post on 5/18/2020 in another thread.

"IMO we're already in a civil war.  The question is "when does it become uncivil?"  I suspect we'll know the answer to that in about 6 months from now."

I guess since the chinavirus started fizzling out the timeline got bumped.

Voices can be heard where these people get their jacked up racist news... CNN, FOX News, ABC, NBC, CBS... go on TV, shout from the rooftops...  

I still have an issue with this particular incident becoming racist... but it is what it is.   These people act like he got arrested because he is black.  They act like he died because he is black.

He was arrested because of a crime he committed.  He died because this cop was a dumb ass and a hot headed moron.

Wasn't he being arrested on a forgery charge?  Seems very heavy handed if true.  Bottom line is there was no excuse for what the officer did and there's no excuse that we're on the verge of marshall law because a bunch of anarchists seeking to overthrow the USA have hikacked this tragedy for their own ends.

Are you blaming the racism in ETX because of the increased African American population?  

The racism in ETX is because blacks and whites are still stuck in the 1920s out there.  Outside of school sports, you don't see a lot of interracial socialization in Marshall, Longview, etc.  

Part of that above statement is basic Sociology "People like being around people like them."  But the people who run the well paying jobs in ETX run the good ole boy network and its hard for African Americans to breakthrough.  When you drive through the broken down homes in Marshall, it is 95% African Americans and Hispanics living there.  Why is that?  Even the hardest and best workers in East Texas have a hard time moving up the ladder if they are African American.  It also has to do with education.  There aren't enough educated jobs in ETX to supply educated African Americans with jobs to keep them in the area.  You often see them flee to Dallas or Houston for more opportunities.  The white educated population in ETX are typically your nurses, doctors, and teachers.  

I would personally like to see better push by the communities in ETX to educate and employ their African American population.  Poor black kids being taught by middle class white people isn't relatable to these students.  While they may still become educated, its still sociology... Poor black kids would perform better if they were taught by someone who looks like them and grew up like them.

Yep it was forgery... Which is a petty crime unless he was trying to hijack millions.  Like I said, this cop was a PoS who had issues, but none of them so far point to racism.

All very good points not too sure about that last one though.  Aren't inner city kids taught by those who look like them?  How's that been working out?  The problem,  IMO,  is the breakdown of the family.  This problem is colorblind.  It used to mainly effect the minority populations,  but white's aren't far behind now.  Daddy was replaced by uncle sam and it's been a disaster.
