Time is ticking.. If the U.S. defaults on it's loans, it won't be a good thing. There were many prophets who predicted that a collapse could be coming to America this summer and if not this summer sometime in the near future. The Bible predicts such things...

Why more people are not talking about such things seems really silly to me..

Don't look at me...

"The year 2011 has already established itself in the record books as a historic year for weather-related disasters, and it is not over -- in fact, hurricane season is just getting under way,"

Here are the other eight..

Upper Midwest flooding, summer

The Missouri and Souris rivers flooded across the Upper Midwest. About 11,000 people were forced to evacuate Minot, North Dakota, and thousands of acres of farmland flooded along the Missouri. Five people were killed, and estimated losses exceed $2 billion and counting.

Mississippi River flooding, spring-summer

Heavy rain and melting snow in the Ohio Valley caused historic flooding along the Mississippi River and its tributaries. At least two people died, and the estimated economic loss ranges from $2 billion to $4 billion.

Southern Plains/Southwest drought, heat wave and wildfires, spring-summer

Drought, heat wave and wildfires have devastated parts of Texas, Oklahoma, New Mexico, Arizona, Kansas, Arkansas and Louisiana. The total direct losses are well over $5 billion, and the drought continues.

Southeast/Ohio Valley/Midwest tornadoes, April 25-30

An outbreak of 305 tornadoes over central and Southern states killed 327 people, including 240 in Alabama. Several of the storms struck heavily populated areas, including Tuscaloosa, Birmingham, and Huntsville in Alabama and Chattanooga, Tennessee, causing the damage costs to soar to more than $9 billion.

Midwest/Southeast tornadoes, April 14-16

Just a few days earlier, an outbreak of 160 tornadoes struck 10 central and Southern states, killing 38 people, 22 of them in North Carolina. Total property losses exceeded $2 billion.

Southeast/Midwest tornadoes, April 8-11

One week before that, an estimated 59 tornadoes in nine states didn't kill anyone but caused more than $2.2 billion in damage.

Midwest/Southeast tornadoes, April 4-5

In the first week of April, 46 tornadoes struck 10 central and Southern states, causing nine deaths and doing $2.3 billion damage.

Groundhog Day Blizzard, January 29-February 3

A large winter storm struck many states in the central, al, eastern and northeastern U.S., leaving 36 people dead. Total losses exceeded $2 billion.

Ok Gman, I'll bite:

Where does the bible predict a collapse of America?

When good things happen it's a sign from God, when bad things happen it's a sign from God.

If America is prospering it's a sign from God, if America is faltering it's a sign from God.

There are plenty of people taking the debt crisis seriously, one day we may realise again that debt and interest is not the most fruitful way to manage the needs of humanity. There does seem to be some disagreement as to wether taking the current finical climate seriously involves taking the Cristian idea of the coming of Christ seriously. The world has been through some pretty bleak times since Jesus died.

The notion that one is living through a pivotal moment in humanity seems pretty common throughout the ages.

I find it hard to digest that nearly 2000 years after the death of Jesus you are starting threads pretty much saying "any day now".

I predict there will be many catastrophic events in 2012 due to Loki being unhappy with the dominance of Christianity in human worship.

Just yesterday I was reading in the French magazine Science & Vie (Science & Life) that disasters have increased fourfold since the 1950s on a yearly basis. (Disasters included famines, earthquakes, floods, and very bad weather. The Science & Vie writer attributed these to global warming...)

''Interesting,'' I thought, ''we are still eating and drinking and being merry.''

Some are predicting another recession or possible collapse this year... The Bible doesn't specifically address America but the world economic systems globally which could effect America.

Interesting that all these calamities are occurring while Israel is about to be divided up. And now earthquakes in DC and Colorado..

Another interesting thing I have just found out. Apparently the U.S. state department has told Israel to apologize to Turkey and Egypt for it's recent retaliations against those countries..

Do we realize how stupid that is? Telling Israel to apologize for Egypt's and Turkey's aggressions against Israel? This kind of X@*$ really makes me upset.. Do these people call themselves educated?

www.israeltoday.co.il for breaking news (like the above) from a Messianic Jewish perspective.

Thanks for that tip FL.. From this website.

"Israel's largest daily newspaper, Yediot Ahronot, reported on Wednesday that the Obama Administration is threatening Israel to either apologize to Turkey over its bloody interception of a Gaza aid flotilla last year, or risk strained ties with Washington."

Obama to Israel: Apologize to Turkey, or else

It's interesting that hurricane Irene is growing in the Atlantic. Just after putting pressure on Israel.. I don't think this is a coincidence..

Does the Bahamas also have a bad track record while dealing with Israel? I ask, because if what your asserting is true, then Bahamas may have taken the full force of Irene. What has the Bahamas' administration done to Israel?
