Before - During And After Newtown There Is Overwhelming Sadness

America becoming the sacrifice zone for world population overload
(2 comments) "Upwards of two hundred species, mostly of the large, slow-breeding variety, are becoming extinct here every day because more and more of the earth's carrying capacity is systematically being converted into human carrying capacity.
