    Paul to Congress: “Someone Who Has Guns, Ammunition, 7 Days of Food” Can Be Considered a Potential Terrorist

    It’s not just the hundreds of thousands of members in the alternative media community that are pointing out the dangers to liberty posed by government’s anti-terror legislation. Senator Rand Paul (R-KY), like his father Dr. Ron Paul (R-TX), puts the platitudes and pointless bickering aside to tackle the real issues – the underlying fundamental issues that threaten our very way of life.

    In this speech calling for the removal of the detainee provisions in the National Defense Authorization Act, Senator Paul highlights, in surprising detail, activities that are now considered by Homeland security and law enforcement to be suspicious and potentially terroristic in nature:

    Sourced via StanDeyo.com; Video Excerpt Below

    Know good and well that some day there could be a government in power that is shipping its citizens off for disagreements. There are laws on the books now that characterize who might be a terrorist.

    Someone missing fingers on their hands is a suspect according to the Department of Justice. Someone who has guns, someone who has ammunition that is weatherproofed, someone who has more than seven days of food in their house can be considered a potential terrorist.

    If you are suspected by these activities do you want the government to have the ability to send you to Guantanamo Bay for indefinite detention?

    A suspect, we’re not talking about someone who has been tried or found guilty. We’re talking about someone suspected of activities.

    …Are you willing to sacrifice your freedom for liberty. I would argue that we should strike these detainee provisions from this bill, because we are giving up our liberty. We are giving up our Constitutional right to have due process before we’re sent to a prison.

    The bill about which Mr. Paul speaks, the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2012 (S 1867), passed the Senate floor on December 1 and is headed to the desk of the President. The Obama administration has thus far said it will veto the legislation.

    It’s obvious to anyone paying attention that the war on terror is being used as the premise to further restrict the individual liberties of American citizens. On Saturday, just days after passage of S1867, Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano said that the threat is no longer just overseas – it’s shifted to domestic “lone wolf” attackers.

    U.S. Homeland Security Director Janet Napolitano said Friday that the risk of “lone wolf” attackers, with no ties to known extremist networks or grand conspiracies, is on the rise as the global terrorist threat has shifted.

    “There’s been a lot of evolution over the past three years,” she said. “The thing that’s most noticeable to me is the growth of the lone wolf,” the single attacker who lives in the United States or elsewhere who is not part of a larger global conspiracy or network, she said.

    She named no examples, but it’s a phenomenon that is increasingly the focus of international anti-terror operations.

    Via: The Daily Sheeple

    In August we reported that the FBI had advised military surplus and other supply stores that individuals purchasing certain types of items should be reported to local law enforcement or federal fusion centers. On the list of suspicious activities you’ll find the general buying habits of most any preparedness or privacy minded person:

    What should I consider suspicious?

    People or groups who:

    • Provide identification that is inconsistent or suspect or demand identity “privacy”
    • Insist on paying with cash or uses credit card(s) in different names
    • Make suspicious comments regarding anti-US, radical theology, vague or cryptic warnings that suggests or appear to endorse the use of violence in support of a cause
    • Demonstrate interest in uses that do not seem consistent with the intended use of the item being purchased
    • Possess little knowledge of intended purchase items
    • Make bulk purchases of items to include:
      -Weatherproofed ammunition or match containers
      -Meals Ready to Eat
      -Night Vision Devices; night flashlights; gas masks
      -High capacity magazines
      -Bi-pods or tri-pods for rifles

    The definitions for terrorist behavior are being rapidly expanded to include Americans from all walks of life. While the above FBI bulletin is not the letter of the law, it stems from the same mentality and organizational structure that legislated the National Defense Authorization and Patriot Acts.

    Americans’ liberty and individual protections afforded by the Constitution are being systemically stripped by all levels of government. Few in Congress, the media and even the populace recognize it for what it is.

        • My Grandparents, probably most or all of our grandparents would be considered terrorists by this bill because they lived during the Great Depression and did have food set aside and they were raised to do that. That is how families survived especially farm families. So the founding fathers were ALL terrorists. Wow look at Jefferson and his huge garden and storrage buildings,terrorist! Wow what a revelation.
          Or our current “fathers” are nuts.

          • If we have a law that says you can’t buy any food you don’t use immediately and a world government that wants you to be microchipped or you don’t get to buy any more food, they pretty much have you over a barrel. Will you bow down to them or watch your family starve?

            As a matter of fact, all of the American Revolution founding fathers WERE labeled as terrorists and traitors to the British Crown. All tyrannical governments see any level of self reliance as a threat against them and their power. :-(

            My great grand mother was an amazing woman. Poorly educated but very wise in the ways of the real world. She raised a huge garden every year and had all of her kids helping her with it while the men folk did the heavy work with the wheat and the animals on the farm. She canned up enough food to feed the family for 3 years the 1st year they had the farm. After that it was eat the oldest food and can a new year’s worth for the pantry. When others were going hungry, they always had plenty. They shared with their neighbors as best they could and got repaid as best as the neighbors could manage. Sometimes it was with milk, eggs, butter, a string of fish, or a few days labor. The point was, there was no room in such an economy for slackers. Everybody worked. They had to if they were going to survive. Most people today have no clue what it takes to survive after the SHTF. If they do not learn REAL fast, they are done.

It is too bad our elected leaders aren’t spending their time passing legislation that is actually HELPFUL to our country – to name just a couple…protect our borders, and correct the UNFAIR trade laws that Americans currently have. Also, there are a bunch of laws on the books that should be abolished.

          Since its the Masters making the definitions, the criteria (and therefore the definitions) will be adjusted in real time to ensure the desired conclusion. This will enable those with the guns, badges and accompanying Power of Ultimate Force to do what they need to do with the Rule of Law to back them up.

          Actually, under the Rule of Fear Mongering, just having a non-leaking roof will confirm “intent”, which will of course, be defined in real time as reasonable cause for arrest.

          Great question MLG. Keep bringing it up. I look forward to the day when the politicians truly fear the wrath of the Liberty-loving Americans. No, I don’t look forward to violence, and I hope it never comes. But my wish is that a healthy fear of the people will deter violence from ever happening in the first place. Of course that will only happen when those who value Liberty no longer worry about being called extremist, radical, or racist.

        KY Mom, I agree with you, only wondering what kind of individual gave you a thumbs down?
        The more I hear and read, concerning elected officals and their comments, the more I think we have been missing the real definition of sheeple. These elected officals are the lackeys of a small handful of powerful people. They think they are protected from the masses (like Mussolini) when they’ll be offered up to protect the handful of the true power behind them. It seems the sheeple powers (elected ones) really have bought into the destruction of this country. There can only be one or at best a small handful that can be in power.
        Nap and her ilk are really sick people. May only be a small percentage that’ll stand up to her kind but it is enough to cause them fear, 129,000+ guns sold on Black Friday. Anymore questions Nap? Our answer is still no to you and your kind; the real terrorists: DC.

          Basically, the gov’t is telling those of us that don’t need their input (in our lives) are terrorists. If we love and believe in freedom we scare them to death, hence they are terrorized. Everything they do is about redefining words/terms. Remember the famous quote “it depends on your definition of what IS is”. Woe to them that call evil good and good evil.

        Clearly, these nitwits are not interested in being “helpful to our country”. They are only interested in looting it and remaining in power so that they can loot it and not have to face the justice that they so richly deserve. Insider trading is ONLY a crime if you are not one of them!

          Knocks on the door are fine but a kick on my door will result in a different kind of sound being heard… that of me racking a #4 buck round into the chamber of my Mossy 500. They definitely do NOT want to hear the sound that follows the above.

          BTW… thanks for your service. Would be glad to know you and have you as a neighbor. :-)

            So would the rest of us terrible potential traitors with ex military, ex police, god fearing, food storing, multiple skill possessors, small farming and animal experienced like to have him for our neighbor. I could then walk out my front door with a rifle and not have a neighbor immediately begin to scream, He’s got a gun, he’s going to kill someone. Obviously they are great mind readers or not since they continued their tirade and did not shut their mouths. Even called the cops and told them I had a houseful of guns (not true but I am adequately armed just in case). When they arrived and mentioned they had a report that I had a houseful of guns, I informed them that I had a Firearms Owners Identification Card (by the way, the Illinois Legislature said in their creation of the law that it would be ineffective once the Brady Law was signed in and that was years ago and I still have to have if even though it is on record as being dead) and indicated my willingness to show it to them but for the guns they needed a warrant with probable cause to see them or a warrant for my arrest for illegal posession. After viewing the card, they shut up and told the neighbor that I was totally legal and not to complain anymore or it would be a false police report. She responded by saying that my guns would kill someone and I told her that the 1863 Springfield 58 caliber Union INfantry rifle hanging over my bedroom doorway had hung over the doorway in various dwellings for the past fifty some years and had never once jumped up and ran down the street killing people in spite of it being an assault weapon since it had a bayonet lug. She then informed me I had no business keeping filthy guns like that and putting people in danger. I told her in front of the cops she would only be in danger if she was in front of the home invader crawling through my window in the middle of the night and then it probably would be the cavalry saber they would encounter since that could not be seized and held by the police indefinitely like my guns could. I had hoped by know that she would be speechless but the nitwit followed me up on my front porch and continued her tirade until I yelled at the cop as he was getting in his car and demanded she be arrested for trespassing since I had not invited her on my property and once she left the sidewalk in front of the house, she was trespassing. The cop was incredulous that I actually was going to file a complaint. What the hell did he think I was going to do, I had to shut her up. They moved a year later and I don’t have that problem anymore.

        One arm of the gov’t telling us to be prepared, ready dot gov or something, and another major arm saying if we’re prepared we’re terrorists.

        Someone somewhere recently noted that Ayn Rand had mentioned in one of her books that the government could not control free citizens but it can control criminals, so the gov’t solution was to declare most of the population to be criminals.

        If we all declare ourselves terrorists, there will indeed be too many of us. Terrorism, Zombie Squad style! That means, teaching, educating, holding blood and charity drives. radical do-gooderism! Teaching marksmanship and gun safety, how ’bout for free if we can? Now that’s radical! How about teaching gardening for free or as close to free as we can?

        And indeed, when they come for us, bullets first!

          So, in a sense, isn’t the govt aiding and abetting or at the least isn’t this ‘entrapment’??
          entrapment: luring an individual into committing a crime in order to prosecute for it.

        • The Moon is a Harsh Mistress says:

          “Molon Labe” was the reply from the Spartans to Xerxes at the battle of Thermopylae when the latter demanded the Spartans lay down there arms. “Come and get them”! I like to think that we would do the same when tyrants come for ours but I fear that we will not regardless of our online bravado. How many resisted the police during Katrina when door to door gun sweeps were used to “prevent violence”? How many here would go down in a blaze of glory when a couple of cops show up at your door and ask to look through the house for guns? Indeed, how many of us would run to grab our AK or AR when we are responding to a knock at our door by cops? Such a response would be stupid at best and suicidal at worst.

          The truth is, most of us here are not in a situation where armed resistance would be possible or practical. In recent history the two armed standoffs by defenders against police thugs, that of the Weaver family and the Branch Davidians, both were the result of botched arrest attempts and the defenders knew police thugs were coming and had both time to arm themselves and nothing to lose by armed resistance. Most of us do not live in structures suited for defense; the modern american house is constructed of plywood and sheetrock which bullets pass through without any resistance, doors are set in wood frames and are easily shattered by a strong kick from a jackbooted thug, and structures are generally flimsy enough to be plowed through by a bulldozer. One of the things which gave us so much trouble fighting in Afghabistan and Iraq is structures are made of mud brick or concrete and impervious to bullets and in some instances even bombs, many structures are surrounded by walled compounds and less vulnerable to direct fire, and doors are generally of stouter construction and set in stronger frames as the populations of those shitholes have little illusions about trusting in their fellow man.

          So what is my point? My point is this; talking about giving up your guns bullets first might sound cool but is far more difficult in actual practice and places where our government’s confiscation efforts are successfully resisted are usually quite defensible to begin with or the occupants have been forewarned. If I was to try and stay in a non-defensible american style house, one thing I would think about is digging down through the foundation, putting in an underground bugout room where my survival stash of food and weapons was stored. I would make sure the entrance was well disguised and proof against giving the location away by not sounding hollow when walked upon. Such a room could be built in secret, out of view of neighbors and busybodies, and would be a place of refuge when the cops show up at the door. Ideally, it could be bolted from inside and bullets passing through the walls would be no threat because the bugout room is underground and shielded by earth.

            Moon’s post made me think….how defensible is a century-old brick farmhouse, built by a German master brickmason, with foot-thick walls? We are in a good-sized (but conservative) midwestern city, and just feel that bugging in is more defensible than bugging out. We are also near a VA medical center….not sure if that would be a positive or a negative.

It’s amazing that they want all our kids medicated, immunized, etc., and the government yahoos are the actual “contagious” ones.

          “There’s no way to rule innocent men. The only power any government has is to crack down on criminals. Well, when there aren’t enough criminals, one makes them. One declares so many things to be a crime that it becomes impossible for men …to live without breaking laws. Who wants a nation of law-abiding citizens? What’s there in that for anyone? But just pass the kind of laws that can neither be observed nor enforced nor objectively interpreted–and you create a nation of law-breakers–and then you cash in on guilt. Now that’s the system, Mr. Rearden, that’s the game, and once you understand it, you’ll be much easier to deal with.” -Atlas Shrugged

          they won’t default, they will pay in fiat(frn’s), or just steal the money, like they just did! We are at #8 when corzine testifies on thursday! The price of silver has been manipulated since the 1920,s(feds had to pay .11 for a dimes worth of silver)! THEY control the price discover system, THEY just printed trillions more dollars with this swap bs. What will it do to the price of silver/gold??? WHO KNOWS!!! Dont underestimate the power of the dark side(THE BANKSTERS) I wouldn’t be suprised if the prices of gold/silver crash, and stays crashed for 30 more years(like it did 1980) and everyone who bought loses their a$$e$. In 1982 the feds stopped making pennies out of copper because it cost so much, but right now the “melt” value is only about $.0258(does a silver dime cost $.20 right now), and that was 30 years ago when they changed composition. What ever games they play to keep REAL INFLATION DOWN seems to WORK. But you never know, If hyperinflation hits. Try to find silver price charts that trace the price gold/silver for zimbabwa, or belurus(who is going threw hyperinflation last couple of months) YOU CANT! Atleast I can’t.

            @Kevin,

            You most likely would not see much change in the price of gold/silver in hyperinflation situations because the populations in the affected countries can convert their worthless fiat into not-yet worthless dollars and continue to purchase goods and services. What would be interesting speculation is what would people do when all fiat currencies are equally worthless? Some store of value will be used to enable trade to continue. My guess is that besides gold and silver, cigarettes, vodka, gasoline, diesel, canned food, etc., will remain as stores of valueand allow those without precious metals the means to continue to purchase goods and services.

He bought a couple kilo bars, when gold was $800 in the 80′s, after radio talk show hosts got him all wired up and concerned about the end of the dollar, and he bought ALL IN. HE GOT F$CKED, had to waite 20 odd years to sell. BUT it did pay for his awesome rig!

          My uneducated opinion on how a Comex default would affect gold or silver prices? My guess is that a default would make paper or electronic shares useful as butt-wiping feedstock, and anyone holding physical metal outside of a bank safe deposit box would see the value go to the moon when no one accepts fiat as payment. If there was still manufacturing going on, I would expect silver to go even higher than gold percentage wise because silver has far more industrial uses than gold. If you had your metal stored for you in some company vault in NYC then you would be SOL!

The blatant grab of their private property by the likes of Corzine, who then has the utter audacity to sit there and claim that he “doesn’t know where the money is” with a straight face is ludicrous. This is but a test case to see if they can get away with outright theft while pretending that it was some sort of market episode that was out of their control. It wasn’t.

        How long until these thieves get around to the mutual funds and banks? Now, that is where the REAL money is. “Sorry Mr. Average American.

        Well said, Manos. You have ably listed the characteristics that define the Amerikan regime’s concept of a “law abiding” citizen. If I may add a few more:

        1) He blindly believes in the pronouncements of “authority.”

        2) He blindly considers ALL authority legitimate.

        3) He mistrusts his own ability to reason deductively and even his own ability to evaluate the world around him.

        4) He is afraid of inwardly contradicting or questioning “authority” (legitimate or not) and morally judges those who do.

        5) He practices a studied sense of submissiveness to his “betters,” i.e., those in government.

        6) Short of retaining his childlike faith in government as a parental figure that will always rescue him because it “cares” for him, he will willingly remain helpless and he will die when and were his government chooses for him to die, so as to remain a “good citizen.”

        These are the characteristics of LIVESTOCK (and certainly not MALE livestock at that!) when you come to think of it.

      The passing of this act should make us tremble – it is the last stand before martial law encompasses not just the US, but North America. Recently, Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper signed on with the US military with a US-Canadian Civil defense plan. The purported purpose of this plan is so that one military group can “help” the other in times of crisis and unrest and to fight “terrorism”.

      But what it actually means is that if the US declares martial law, they can also include Canada in that martial rule. Harper sold his soul, and the freedom of his country, in order to feel “protected” by the US.

      This was just enacted, very quietly and with little ado, on Dec. 1, interestingly the same day the Senate passed this unconstitutional detainment act.

      This really ticks me off.

        As a Canadian, my take on this is that healthy, young Canadian soldiers will be sent to yet another foreign country to intervene in a civil war, that is NONE OF OUR BUSINESS.

          Personally, I would rather my beautiful state of Washington simply secede from the USA and join Canada as a new province. Canada has its problems but it sure seems to be better managed in most respects than the US. It saddens me to say it but facts are facts.

          Well I agree with you completely, POA. The whole agreement reeks of Agenda 21 to me.

          I think soldiers going across the border either way to “keep peace” is a terrible idea. The Canadian military is minute compared to the US military, so it makes me think that the Canadian army would be of little assistance down south.

          As far as invasions go, this agreement would legitimize it as a pact between the two governing bodies. One could easily argue that they were just stepping in to “help.”

    21. Can anyone help point to the section of the bill that gives the feds this authority?

      Section 1031 (p. 632) contradicts this by stating,

      ” UNITED STATES CITIZENS — The requirement to detain a person in military custody under this section does not extend to citizens of the United States.”

      This only pertains to U.S. citizens in THIS section.

      There may be other sections that Rand and the Judge are referring to….I would like to have those specific sections (i.e. chapter and verse) pointed out so I can read them myself. Exactly WHAT part of this bill needs to be amended?

        • HMMMM….doing my OWN research.
          I’ve read sections 1031 and 1032 of S. 1867. The only thing I can find is that 1031 is vague and can be loosely interpreted…which is ALWAYS dangerous for our gov’t., law enforcement, and military.

          My concern, how difficult would it be for Rand Paul or Judge Napoletano (sp?) to site the specific section which concerns them? I want to believe these men, but as President Reagan said, “Trust but verify.”

          If I argue this issue with a liberal idiot, I want to be able to back up my concerns with facts.

        Apparently it means that the “person” ( a US citizen) does not need to be detained in military custody.

        In other words, the military can pick you up and drop you off at a FEMA camp rather than having an obligation to keep you in it’s own custody.

        There is no need trying to decode the corps “law”. Only one subject to it would need to do that or use it in any court proceeding as “law”. If you are subject to it, it really doesn’t matter what you think it says.

        Your time is far better spent in understanding the laws that apply to you. They come from God and can not be superseded by the corp.

      Why isn’t congress addressing the biggest real issues concerning America and has been for years even decades, that is JOBS? Instead they continue to waste time playing around with non issues or stupid little games. DHS even recommends having preps and even the most pacifist butterfly loving ghandi can see the use for food storage with all the extreme weather we’ve been having. And even innocent grandma noona wants her privacy and not be tracked by GPS or whatever. Prepping helps individuals prepare for a rainy day and even helps the economy. Congress should be promoting it rather than demonizing it. And how has terrorism shifted from over seas to lone wolfers? If anything the ‘over seas’ variety has finally settled down which after a decade and a trillion dollars of fighting it, it very well should be. Now are they looking for another boogie man to hype so they can keep their jobs, company cars, and promotions coming for the next decade. Hey I got an idea, maybe they can go after the financial ‘wall street’ terrorists that profit from raping the economy and the country.

      Entrenchment is a good word, a nice fineconservative word, maybe I’ll prctice that.

      I helped the wife do 5 1/2 quarts of pickled eggs yesterday. And I spent most of Saturday and Sunday welding, I’ve two columns finished, one boiler 99% complete, a main condensor and a reflux condensor done.

      Cardiacdemolisher, if your reading this, almost complete.

      Working on 4 units now. But I’ve one problem, except for the original prototype, I do not have a unit for our family! What? I guess I’ll have to start on a special Steam Punk “one of a kind” Unit for the Family….
      BTW, I do have an antique “Ali Baba” style Still, found it in a mom and pop store online, it was made into a lamp. A customer and I checked it for lead, yup positive, so I put it on the propane burner, which melted all the lead solder out of it, (collected about 3 lbs) and of course, the unit fell apart…but good news, I ordered some concentrated acetic acid, to remove any residual lead…

      Here is the point…IT will be about a (guestimate) 20+ gallon unit, it will be beautiful when reassembled and welded as much as possible, it is made of brass and heavy copper…IF anyone is interested in having a one of a kind multi-distillation reflux fractionating column based on this lovely antique, give me a call…I’ll have to do some cyphering and it most likely not be cheap, but I garantee it will be gorgeous, one of kind and fully functional with a lifetime garantee!

      Terry W. Reed
      832-425-2932

      I will start work on this unit as I can, but if someone wants it and the price is right, I’ll kick it into the production line.

      Anyone else if you have needs in distillation, check me out…if you are not so well off, I’ll work with you on affordabilty, but will likely steer you away from stainless steel, can do thinner copper, if needed.

      I can also give you a design if you are the mind to build your own, free of charge.

      And if you are looking for extreme economics can give you a very simple design, that works very well but cannot get you to fuel grade level unless you are very very patient.

      While those of us who are awake are gagging on this unconstitutional piece of trash, the MSM is chatting up the payroll tax cuts (of about $1000 a year).

      The stupid thing is, when someone has money taken out of a paycheck in advance of having the check cut, they “don’t miss” the money -the same is true in the opposite direction. This seems like a non-topic to me.

      I’d like to hear what TPOTUS has to say about the trampling of our rights…oh wait, he made that clear when he approved keeping the Patriot Act active. Grrrrrr. This sh!t just gets under my skin sometimes. Sorry all, rant off.

      • Companies (or corporations) are considered “persons”. Under S.1867, theoretically, they could detain Wal-Mart as a covered person if they determined they were involved in giving aid to Al Qaeda. Personally, I think Al Bundy is more dangerous but at least he had a cute daughter.

        But, seriously, in S.1867 it defines covered persons to possibly be corporations, groups of people or individuals. Which means they could detain your bridge club if they thought they were involed in suppor of Al Keida (Keyda, Kaida, Quaeda, Chuyduh, whatever…)

      Thank you for that! When I thought about what was being said, things that could flag you as a terrorists…my first thought was…they better keep building those camps. Over half the population must have guns, ammo and 7 days of food. I don’t know a single person who couldn’t manage not going to the grocery store for seven days (including my elderly and mostly shut in parents). I only shop twice a month (paydays) so I must have at least 14 days of food on hand at any given time. I live in a rural location… so it is prudent to save on fuel. Additionally, this sounds like any farmer or rancher I know. I must protect my herd from prey, hence the weapons and ammo. Coyotes, weasels, cats, and raccoon’s…good reason to own a flashlight and a gun. My uncle-n-law is a filbert farmer and goes through thousands of rounds a year on pests (squirrels and jays). Does anyone realize the kind of things you would find on a farmers property…I couldn’t even begin to list all items I have had (at one time or another) that could raise an eyebrow. I am surprised they didn’t include dogs in their list of suspected things to watch out for…Don’t mess with my dogs, if they don’t hurt you, I sure as hell will!

    51. Former deputy national intelligence officer for transnational threats, writes today in the Washington Post that the neocons have whipped us into an irrational fear of the terrorism. In reality, “Osama bin Laden and his disciples are small men and secondary threats whose shadows are made large by our fears” and our leaders.

      The BBC produced a documentary called The Power of Nightmares in 2005 that showed that politicians were greatly exaggerating the terrorist threat for political ends.

      How many people are employed to watch how many people? Somewhere they must be hiring people to fulfill all of these duties. Even if all E mails are scanned someone, somewhere must decide what is threatening and what is not. One in every 200 people or so is presently locked up. This stuff could make it one in a 100. I know of two groups, One “Worshippers of the sphere” who don’t know or care to know and everyone else who knows something is wrong and is learning the reasons why. That is one heck of a lot of people.

      I have always had a healthy mistrust of authority having seen it used and abused. I however cannot imagine a mass round up of people critical of the government in the US. I can see huge numbers of people complaining to no avail regardless how they vote and who they write to. But locking people up in numbers (and it would have to be in significant number) for political speech? I just can’t see it.

      Night and day, the heavily-loaded trains are hauling away all of our natural resources, i.e., oil, gasoline, some chemicals, grains, and coal. This raping of our resources is probably why our gas prices are still so high, even though we are using 2/3 less than one year ago. There seem to be nothing that we, as individuals, can do to stop the fire-sale of the resources, that will be needed desperately in the future. All that we sensible folks can do is to stock up, hold some cash, hold some wealth in PMs, and some lead for the eventual stand.
