We trust you have not planned anything extensive for December 21, 2012 because there is a strong chance there will not be a December 22, 2012. Next month a new Hollywood film, “2012″ opens which describes horrible events on that day which marks the end of the Mayan calendar. The Mayan civilization which thrived from 300 A.D. to 900 A.D. had its own calendar. The Mayan calendar begins in 3114 B.C. and marks periods of time in 394 year chunks known as Baktuns. The number 13 was sacred to Mayans and their calendar, in effect, culminates in the 13th Baktun which occurs on December 21, 2012. Hollywood predicts on that day there will be tornadoes and hurricanes and turmoil and disaster with the entire planet coming close to its ultimate climax.
Once every 25,800 years the sun lines up with the center of the Milky Way and is the lowest spot in the horizon. Guess what, that will happen on December 22, 2012.
I assume Rush Limbaugh and Glenn Beck and company will blame Barack Obama for the coming calamity. See what happens when you elect a Kenya born black man as president. Now, if we had a nice white conservative woman like Sarah Palin the apocalypse will not occur. So, head to the voting booth in November, 2012 and cast your ballot for Sarah if you want to save civilization from liberal disaster!
