The Approaching Storm…

The time is drawing near.  When everything collapses around us who will be there? Who will be left?  Not the elite, the rich, or even the political hacks that put us here.  We will be all alone and we will survive.  Unless “We The People” stand up and get off of our lazy dairy-airs nobody in Washington will really do anything to try and stop what is inevitable.    2012 will be a year unlike any year in our past.  It will be a year that will make some of us stronger.  It will also be the year that will undo many of those that we thought were strong and literally destroy them.  I believe that it will be a year where faith takes a front row seat in many of the life and death decitions that we will be forced to make.  Not only faith and belief in a Superior being or God, but it will renew a faith in our fellow man.

Bill Whittle is great talker and also a great thinker.  This clip of him sends a message.  Those who take the time to watch it will find that it is well worth a few minutes out of your life.  Enjoy…

Bobcat Perches Atop Saguaro Cactus

Published : Wednesday, 06 Apr 2011, 6:38 PM MDT

GOLD CANYON, Ariz. – The images are incredible. A bobcat that has scampered to the top of a saguaro cactus — and it was quite a climb!

The photos were captured in Gold Canyon, on the foot of the Superstition Mountains.

The bobcat was trying to get away from a mountain lion that was stalking it, explains the photographer Curt Fonger. He darted up a 40-foot saguaro, and there he stayed for the remainder of the day.

Curt Fonger and his wife Marta are living out their golden years on wilderness’ edge in Gold Canyon. With over 40 years of photography experience, Curt recently had a career-defining moment.

“I’ve never had the luxury of seeing a bobcat on top of a saguaro,” he says. “Just a beautiful creature, he was displaying himself proudly, kind of looking around, probably trying to see if mister mountain lion was still around… it was almost if he was posing!”

Curt says the golden cat with amber eyes stared back at him, perched on top of the cactus for hours.
“He was pretty relaxed, he kind of laid on top of the saguaro, shut his eyes, almost as if he was sleeping.”
The bobcat eventually came down, but Curt and Marta are still riding high.
 “It was that Kodak moment I think every photographer lives for.”
