I looked and there before me was a pale horse

The epicenter of the Apocalypse appears to be in Arkansas with a massive outbreak of deadly tornadoes on New Years Eve. Mid-winter tornadoes aren’t unheard of but are usually of the “lose a few shingles” variety as opposed to the “scour the earth and leave nothing standing” kind that they had in this occurrence.

<cutline>Gustave Doré: <br />Death on the Pale Horse (1865)</cutline>Overnight they had an outbreak of “madness” among the huge flocks of Black Birds that winter there, they took wing in the dark of night and summarily dropped dead en masse. There are reports that this “bird madness” phenomenon also occurred in Louisiana.

The secular explanation for all this would be that the winter storms are more severe from the global warming caused by the pollution of huge corporations. The birds’ behavior can probably be traced back to the same sort of corporate malfeasance. It was an otherwise cool, calm night and no “natural” cause is apparent.

This would be the same corporations run by a cadre of men like Dick Cheney that want to make us all slaves and don’t care how many of us they kill to achieve world domination. Okay, so it is the Apocalypse.

I heard the voice of the fourth living creature say, “Come!” I looked and there before me was a pale horse! Its rider was named Death, and Hell was following close behind him. They were given power over a fourth of the earth to kill by sword, famine and plague, and by the wild beasts of the earth.

Have your canned Holy water ready.
