The Rice

And now in my religious fanaticism thoughts, I am starting to wondering if it is the beginning of the end of the world again as the other days cover of the Metro's headline read "Hoarding epidemic hits U.S., New York", as prices of rice, and other staples soar, stores resort to rationing. And this article had a photo and caption of 20 pound bags of rice being rationed. And then that verse in Revelations comes to mind, "And when he had opened the third seal, I heard the third beast say, Come and see. And I beheld, and lo a black horse; and he that sat on him had a pair of balances in his hand. And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts say, A measure of wheat for a penny, and three measures of barley for a penny; and see thou hurt not the oil and the wine". Behold, is the black horse of famine, the tribulation, the 3rd seal of revelations, the anti christ and doomsday near. What would Nostradamus have to say about this impending silent tsunami famine of global grain shortages. Is this written in prophecy somewhere? Is 2012 here? Is the apocalypse near? Is it judgement day yet? And what about that Albert Einstein quote "If the bee disappeared off the surface of the globe then man would only have four years of life left. No more bees, no more pollination, no more plants, no more animals, no more man," what would he have to say about all of this. And I saw this recent phenomenon of people hoarding rice with my very own eyes yesterday as if it were really real, walls and walls full of big bags of rice when I went to this store in Chinatown, Asia's bread basket bowl. And does any of this have to do with those bees that are dying from some sort of fungus and bats that are disappearing from some sort of fungus, and fish that are disappearing, and wheat that is disappearing from some sort of Ug99 fungus, and the price of barrels of oil going up and inflation going up even more from the Federal Reserve and Treasury printing up money to cover all of this national debt crisis and global warming and ecosystems that are collapsing thing? Is this all related. Is the beginning of the end near. Should I go and buy all of the rice I can find now before it is not there tomorrow or something. What does this all mean, Does Wikipedia have an entry for this?
