Why is America is falling apart?

This is how it is done...finding common ground.
Tom interviews an Oathkeeper and manages to have a civil conversation to find common ground...and common ground is TPTB's worst nightmare.

Young people, take your country back.

I was watching this...

And it occurred to me that it is up to the young people now...we have failed and we must admit it and step out of the way and follow the young not try to lead them.
It will take a whole generation to change this and most of us hear I think will not be alive then...it is they young people's world to inherit, and we have left them an inherit of fear and conflict.

So I supported OWS and I will support these young people...even if just by saying it.

An explanation for the flood of Noah.

This is not my idea but one I read about a long time ago when I was into reading mysticism and stuff...and cannot remember where I got it from, but I will try it out here to see what you think.

It is based on a reading by Edgar Casey back in the 30s...and it had to do with Atlantis the lost contenent...and according to Casey the Atlantians were highly advanced and they caused their own destruction because they "ruptured the gas belt"...and I always wondered at that...a gas belt?

But then I learned about methane hydrate...methane gas in a solid form bound with water into an ice, and in the 30s they did not know that those do actually exist in the deep parts of the seAs of the world....large quantize of it locked up in solid under great pressure from the deep water.
And the two things that keep them solid is pressure and temperature...change any one of those too much and you get what you get when you pop a cork on a bottle of champain...a rapid expansion of water...
And according to this theory or creative speculation if you will...the flood was caused by the Atlantians who ruptured this methane hydrate layer under the sea and that explains the rain for 40 days and the water covering the mountains and then receding after a time...it would have also produced a gigantic tsunami wave that could have wrecked the whole world.

Any thoughts?

I had a strange thing happen

I was going to Youtube and I had to log in for some reason, and when I gave the information it said the password was wrong and would need to ask some more questions.
And they were never the right answers so I had to keep trying
All along there was a bar at the top supposedly to show how long it would take and so I kept trying to log in.

Have I been hacked? because I never completed the log in and closed the browser and opened a new one and went to YT as normal logged in.

What do you think?

Prison vs School: The Tour

'The War on Kids' shows how American public schools have failed in their mission to provide education, erode the country's democratic foundation by denying the most basic civil rights to youth, and often resemble prisons.
