Liar Liar pants on fire!

It seems some people are looking at the recent spate of mass die-offs among various forms of wildlife as signals that the world is about to come to an end.

Which begs a question.


What are you gonna do about it?  Nothing, that's what.  If the world ends it ends,  You're not gonna get saved in the rapture, nor burned in that myth called hell.  Nor are you going to be able to take your material goods with you, and likely not those you love here either.  There are things you can do something about and there are those you can't.  This would be the latter.

Some say the government is lying to us about these deaths and there is some sinister plot afoot.

My response:  (Gasp!) You mean the government doesn't tell me the absolute truth about everything? 

Exactly how naive are you? Governments have been lying with impunity to their citizenry since time began.  If you don't know this perhaps you should spend a little more time reading.  Start with the Vietnam war.

The story we're getting is that these kinds of things "...happen all the time..." and they're gonna stick to it.

And so it goes:
