Hi Steve -
I happen to be the moderator who added "End Times Rant" to the end of the thread, since I'm the one who also split this post off from the North American Unity thread. http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/rant
1. a loud bombastic declamation expressed with strong emotion [syn: harangue]
2. pompous or pretentious talk or writing [syn: bombast]
1598, from Du. randten "talk foolishly, rave," of unknown origin (cf. Ger. rantzen "to frolic, spring about"). The noun is first attested 1649, from the verb. Ranters "antinomian sect which arose in England c.1645" is attested from 1651; applied 1823 to early Methodists. A 1700 slang dictionary has rantipole "a rude wild Boy or Girl."
I think that your opening post fits either definition quite well, and so I decided to add the noun "rant" to the title, to make it more descriptive to those who may be confused about why this was in a new thread. The second half of your post has little to do with the first half, and only the first half was relevant to the North Am Unity thread, so I decided to split it off, in order to keep comments about your End Times Rant out of that other thread. I stand by my decision more resolutely after seeing how this thread has progressed (if one would really call it "progress"). If you have a problem with my decision, you should appeal it to FrChris, who oversees the work of the Global Moderators.
