Ure, over at Urban Survival, once again analyzes where others fear to tread so merely link, and points out all the 40 caliber pistol ammo purchases from such head scratching entities as the folks that forecast weather ( and I think Social Security ) and THEN, their additional clumsy effort to delete that information from public record. The deletion is what has Ure’s radar pinging in triple alert mode. Now, I differ with the gentleman on many fronts. His economic wave theories are silly if you believe that the powers behind the curtain manipulate the markets ( or, increasingly seem to BE the market ) and how in the name of all that is good and holy can you predict deflation after quantitative easing has doubled the money supply in the last few years or in the face of Peak Oil and Massive Unprecedented Long Term Historical Global Drought? But you have to admit the man has far reaching curiosity and covers more ground than the next two or three survival sites put together. His concern is that the Powers That Be are expecting Huge And Immediate Earth Shaking Collapse and need lots of ammunition for it. Nothing helps put a smile on your face during the collapse of western civilization more than MRE’s, bottled water and 40 caliber ammo ( you do still recall the recent stockpiling for the supposed New Madrid earthquake, right? ) if you are a federal jack booted thug.
So, let’s assume that Ure is correct and the idiots in charge expect the whole ball of wax to start melting real quick. I have no idea if this is true, but at the very least it is a nice paranoia thought exercise. Two things lend credence to the theory. First, the end of the year deadline for delivery doesn’t correspond with government end of the year which is usually fiscal rather than calendar. I could see if the deadline was needed before funding for next year was figured, but this doesn’t seem to be the case. And two, as incompetent and ungainly as our federal masters are, the one skill most governments possess is self survival. They can’t predict when they’ll need to take a dump next, but they might be able to predict when all their “kicking the can down the road” will blow up on themselves. I know most of you ignore me, but you can’t actually really believe that all the growing drought, continuing oil declines, massively growing money supply and continuing growth globally of more and more countries trying to drop out from the dollar hegemony isn’t all going to come together in a perfect storm, and somehow we emerge business as usual? You really think so? Perhaps THEY know something and are making contingency stockpiling plans ( no, it won’t be the two prime suspects- Euro collapse or Israeli attack on Iranian nukes- these are most likely mind candy for the masses ).
So, the WHY of the matter is easy enough. Something wicked this way comes. The funny as hell part, to me at least, is the HOW. How are they planning on dealing with domestic unrest? By arming near about every federal department, and we are talking about those folks that have absolutely no business arming themselves ( you gasp at the audacity of Nation Forrest SWAT teams, but at least the War On Drugs was a half assed excuse ), the government has, in their eyes, really ramped up their manpower. But the problem is how these morons think on a tactical level. Besides the obvious idiocy of assuming the citizenry will quack in their boots at the sight of a fat, old, unqualified guy waving around a plastic pistol, there is the odd way of looking at the federal training process. To them, since the collective is all and the individual is nothing, they assume ANYONE can be trained to do as they command. It is a one size fits all process. Put any clown through your super duper accredited class and they all emerge as fearless ninja warriors. What they really churn out are college educated ( read, politically correct curricula taught ) nerds, dweebs and morons, arm them and expect miracles. Any redneck crackhead trailer trash honkey mo-fo with a bolt action can stand off a hundred yards and blast out the chest cavity of these parading idiots as they act out their juvenile fantasies of retribution against the unarmed, the elderly and infants and pregnant women.
Are you seriously worried about the martial capabilities of a weatherman armed with a plastic pistol? Bury a gun or two, with ammo and food, and sit back and relax, watching the fun. The FedGov knows it can’t suppress domestic unrest on a wide scale. They can’t depopulate all the overseas garrisons without strangling trade ( the bankers need their interest payments to continue! ) and they can’t afford to replace all the local police with federal agents. So they just arm the folks they have. Why, if we send them through the required courses on intimidation and safety, we’ll have instantly tripled our law enforcement personnel! Yet, if the situation gets bad enough, bad enough that we the people aren’t fed ( the ONLY detonator of rebellion ), there won’t be enough people, sidearms or ammo to stem the tide. Who cares if the feds are going to get a billion rounds of pistol ammo? They have to be able to use it effectively to matter. I wish we had more non-problems like this to worry about.
ENDNEW Bison Blog CD For Sale
I've got an actual professional to achieve and format all the old blog on a CD-ROM. It turned out really nice- much nicer to read than online.
