BACK to the Titanic..which our cranky friends are ignoring to put forth their angry agendas....I am already planning on seeing it on the 14th which is the exact 100 year anniversary of its sinking.

About 30 years ago, my parents used to know a lady in Hermosa Beach who had been a young child on the Titanic, they met her at breakfast every day at IHOP. It was many years ago and we thought, oh, that's interesting, but not enough to ask many questions, the ship had not even been discovered yet. I regret so much that I never talked to her about her experiences!

Actually, Bill Clinton is soley responsible. He made it mandatory to give loans to deadbeats. Not a good business strategy. He was impeached you know.
Bush in 2003 changed everything that lead to the collapse. The American Dream Down-payment Act changed three things about home laws. 1. No down payment required. 2. No background checks required. 3. Loans could be made for greater than a home value.

Bush: "One of the biggest hurdles to homeownership is getting money for a down payment. This administration has recognized that, and so today I'm honored to be here to sign a law that will help many low-income buyers to overcome that hurdle, and to achieve an important part of the American Dream.
I, too, want to pay homage to a man I call "Little Woody" -- that would be Rob Woodson. He worked hard in the development of this policy. I think it is safe to say that he was the -- he developed the concept for this policy, a concept embraced by my administration. I'm appreciative that Michelle is here. I also want to thank Dad for coming -- Bob Woodson, who is a social entrepreneur, a person who cares deeply about every American having the right and a chance to own a home. Thank the Woodson family. God bless you all.(Applause.)

As for sniffing farts, I have never met your old incontinent whore mother. Does she live near you? If so, I would stock up on air fresheners. I guess all that anal sex with her tricks has finally caught up with her.
You are an expert on anal sex! How do you and your sons share the Vaseline or do you use one another's saliva? Have fun sicko.

The Titanic sank in less than 3 hours. America lasted 3 years under Obama. I like to explore the America wreck and look at the animal life which has thrived since Obama took office. Weasels, leeches, and dung beetles never had it so good. She was majestic in her time though. Pity.
Sad fact is here again we have been lied to. That wreckage is of the RMS Olympic which had been severely damaged by a British warship, the Hawke, which had an upper and underwater ram for sinking enemy vessels. Upon official investigation Capt Smith of later "Titanic" fame was found at fault for crossing a military manuever "lane" so neither the British gov't nor Lloyd's of London would cover the extensive damages. The Olympic was given a hasty patch on the starboard side about 85ft from the stern and limped back to Southhampton and placed in drydock right next to the newborn hull of sistership Titanic.
The Olympic still had many passenger trips, much cargo and mail deliveries scheduled. J.P. Morgan and White Star Lines were going bankrupt fast. So they decided to get the Titanic done quickly and switch nameplates. The two ships swapped places in drydock repeatedly and the Olympic was also painted black like the Titanic. The Olympic had also lost one of its three propellers from the accident and acquired one from the Titanic. That is the one "discovered" with the wreck.
J.P.Morgan was supposed to be on that so-called maiden voyage but he apparently bailed at the first stop in Cherbourg, France and a couple then signed on as "Mr&Mrs Morgan". Capt Smith knew this ship well as it was really the Olympic and he sped on toward the exact location of the deadly iceberg which had likely been towed in place. Not to worry though as the Californian, also owned by Morgan, was standing by quietly 6miles from the first iceberg that would ever sink a ship. The Californian had no passengers on this unscheduled trip. There was also a suspicious absence of cargo except for 1,500 woolen blankets and 1,500 jumpers. That night of the disaster both Capt Smith of the Titanic(Olympic) and Capt Lord of the Californian slept(?) in their uniforms. Somehow the Californians log fell overboard when plans went wrong. At least this ship was covered by insurance.
The real Titanic served over thirty years as the Olympic and as a troop-ship. The wreck on the ocean-floor bears evidence of the nameplate switch, the light-grey original paint on the hull and it broke in two right where the Hawke struck it on the starboard side damaging the keel.
Painting the wreck will only destroy evidence. The wreck should be brought to the surface so all can see the real and awful truth.

There is also a possibility the ship had a fourth boiler tha was removed or fell to the oceanfloor after the hit from the warship. This makes more sense than to believe the official story that the fourth funnel was designed and placed there for purely acstetic appeal.

Any passengers who actually sunk with the ship were probably eaten by sea creatures. I doubt more than several made it to the bottom. I say raise the Titanic! Which is really the RMS Olympic.

Unlikely. It is rusted junk and literally falling to pieces by now.

Yeah if they can leave it down there a few more years no physical evidence of the insurance-fraud switch will remain and the world will never know what kind of evil-cabal Freemason J.P. Morgan Sr was a part of. Last year they did the Boston bombing, this year the ferry accident and multiple stabbings & shootings. Blood sacrifices feed their power.

You seem to believe there is an evil-cabal controlling everything we see and hear in the mainstream media and that it has been this way for a very long time. I am sure you are correct on most of this stuff but the ONLY thing that really matters is your personal relationship with Jesus. Please ask him into your heart today and repent of your sinfulness. He will forgive and give you the strength to face the "barackolypse" you mentioned. Likely you will first be Raptured and avoid the whole mess. You are in my prayers even now.

I wonder what her thoughts were concerning J.P. Morgan, Bruce Ismay, Capt Smith, the Californian and the ship breaking in two?
