If you happened to be in downtown Tampa this weekend, you had myriad choices on what to do with yourself in a spectacular weekend of activity.
There were loads of young high school students going back and forth from the Tampa Convention Center to the Straz Center, as part of the Florida State Thespian Festival. You had 18,000 basketball crazed fans attending the double header Saturday afternoon at the St. Pete Times Forum. And there was something called The World's Greatest Hobby Tour at the Convention Center over the weekend as well (that event showcased the hobby of model railroading).
But on Saturday I opted for about an hour and a half to go inside the Mariott Marriott-Waterside hotel in downtown Tampa on Saturday to join approximately 300 very sober minded people to hear that the U.S. was essentially going to hell pretty quickly.
The doomsday scenarios were being laid out in day two of the three day Save American Convention, which featured a number of speakers who seriously want to eviscerate the Federal Reserve Board.
Although the itinerary featured only men, when I arrived a little before 2 p.m. a woman who I only heard was named Karen began discussing something called Agenda 21, which was drawn up in 1992 for the UN Commission on Sustainable Development. According to Karen, Agenda 21 was all about ultimately having a One World Government. She said the group's ultimate goal was to reduce the world's population down to 1 billion people (currently it's 6.8 billion). She said this would be accomplished through health care, and said that was one reason the Obama administration and Democrats were so insistent on getting such a bill passed in Congress a year ago.
