Some of us geezers on the board may recall the dire predictions back when JFK was around, and Bobby Kennedy was being talked up as a future Presidential candidate -- and later when Bobby actually ran for President and Teddy was being talked up as a future Presidential candidate. There was this whole big scare about how if 3 brothers were elected it was a sign of the end of the world...supposedly based on Nostradamus.

I wonder if we're going to start hearing that sort of stuff now that Jeb! is being floated as a possible successor to his brother and father.

I wonder if we could start it...I mean, heck, you can pretty much get Nostradamus to say anything. And if it was "three brothers" back in the 1960's, we can just claim that he'd been misread and it was really about "three branches from the same bush" or something...


Washington Post

The second -- and current -- President Bush suggested yesterday that his younger brother, Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, would make a "great president."

"I would like to see Jeb run at some point in time, but I have no idea if that's his intention or not," Bush said in an interview with Florida reporters, according to a story on the St. Petersburg Times Web site.

So is the end of the world a bad thing, now? I had just finally gotten comfy with the idea.

Nostradamus must be a pretty good prophet if he actually predicted there would one day be a country of any significance with an elected leader. Generally if leadership of a country only stayed in a family for 3 "branches" that would be kind of weird, don't you think? But yeah, sure brothers = dad and two sons. Why not.

Century 8, Quatrain 17

Les bien aisez subit seront desmis
Par les trois freres le monde mis en trouble,
Cité marine saisiront ennemis,
Faim, feu, sang, peste & de tous maux le double.

Those at ease will suddenly be cast down,
The world put into trouble by three brothers;
Their enemies will seize the marine city,
Hunger, fire, blood, plague, all evils doubled.

I was led to understand that the earth had already been destroyed... just the paperwork isn't finished yet.

Remember when the King of Terror descended from the sky in August of 1999, and the earth blew up? [Laugh]

I Jeb wants to run, it would seem advisable to wait until a time when he doesn't have so much baggage from the current president bush.

The apple that fell way the hell far away from the tree.

I am each time "dead by laughing" when we try to explain what Nostradamus wrote.
I think that the treebrotherspizzas project to make the appocaliptic pizza : the vesuve wake up. And the marine city is Naple, as a grilled fish on the pizza and cover by a hot piment-tomato sauce.
What's the hell !!!

I found the Supreme Being pizza quite disturbing. I must've burped for days.
