The Eiffel Tower (1889)
Sorry to tell you this, but you're on somebody's list.
Are you a Jew, Christian, Muslim (Sunni, Shia, or other sect), or Hindu? How about a Catholic or Protestant? Think Ireland, the Middle East, India or Europe for what happens to families on that list.
Are you educated? Have a college degree? Teacher, religious, secular, or public? For your family's potential 'end' see Cambodia, Turkey, Iraq, Iran, or Afghanistan.
Government employee, police officer, fire fighter, or soldier? You're a supporter of the 'current' regime, during a revolution; you know what happens to them?
Doctor, Nurse, or other public health worker? Think forced labor i.e. socialized medicine.
Have I forgotten anyone, yet?
Ah, receiving government 'assistant' such as Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security Insurance payments, food stamps (EBT card), Section 8, or veteran's benefits. You're on a list, just waiting to be used by someone or some group.
Do you get advertisements for the Humane Society, the National Rifle Association, Code Pink, or other political group? You guessed it; you're on a list. Depending on who is looking, you're a potential ally or an Enemy of the State.
Oh, don't think you're free from suspicion because you family is considered an 'ally.' The Nazis and soviets, two of many examples, are famous for exterminating their friends when it was convenient.
Let's take another look in your mail box.
Do you receive catalogs from Lands' End, L.L. Bean, or other preppie retailer? How about the upscale retailers, Nordstrom's, Sak's, or Barney's? Sportsman's Guide, Major Surplus & Survival, or Emergency Essentials? Brownell's, Cabela's, Gander Mountain, or R.E.I.?
You don't get catalogs; you say?
You're on a list, just like the familyies that have a mailbox. Heck, the scum-sucking, dirt bag named the Unibomber was on a list, in the wilds of Montana. Somebody just didn't have it in their hands, yet.
Oh, I almost forgot!
Registered to vote? Does you state categorize by parties, on the voter register? Then you're on a list, with a political leaning, too.
Written a letter to your elected representative at the House of Representatives or Senate?
Parking ticket? Arrest record? Civil proceedings? Pet license? Driver's license? Business' license? Pay taxes? Don't pay taxes? Water bill? Gas bill? Tax bill? Trash bill? Green card? Visa to visit this country? Passport? State identification card? Student I.D. card? Savings account? Checking? I.R.A. account? Credit card?
The lists go on.
Doom and Gloom
Things You Might Want to Think About
Lebensraum or 'Living Space'
One of the lesson, I learned while growing up, was to tell the truth.
It seems, Hitler told the truth by showing a map to the German people. A map ... that illustrated the actually size of Germany to other countries.
Living in Fear
You and your family have a choice, in the coming tough times, you can passively wait for what will happen, or you can obtain the tools, knowledge, and supplies that will be needed to survive, now.
Truth, Law and Decency
I believe, we have a choice in the coming years (if not now) about the character of our country. We can decide to continue on with appeasement of Iran, acceptance of Islamic refugees, and other current policies of our so-called leaders.
We can decide to say 'Enough is enough,' 'Our laws, based on Christian ideals, are correct and just,' and 'Our country is (basically) good, with good intentions.'
"When push comes to shove (and it will), nothing will have any value except food and the resources needed to grow it: water and energy"
"If we’re going to come out on top as a movement, we have to be intolerant of their intolerance."
"Unrest breeds surprises."
