MRAP + Molotov cocktail = no more MRAPOctober 27, 2014 at 2:11 pm #27808
My wife and I have already decided that when the first case is reported in Florida she is quitting her job. She works at an elementary school and a lot of the kids she takes care of have parents who work in hospitals, LW enforcement and as EMTs. She has already informed her boss.October 27, 2014 at 2:04 pm #27806
And this sort of thing is precisely why I keep very little money in banks.October 21, 2014 at 9:04 pm #27509
I imagine that if it is a catastrophe of the magnitude that means I am having to organize body disposal then I will be digging very large holes to put the bodies in well in advance of filling them with something along the lines of a bulldozer or large front end loader.
I may just dig a very large pit or trench and push trees and other flammable debris into it then dump bodies scooped with a front end loader into it and burn them and repeat as necessary until the pit is full.
My goal would be to first clean up the remains out in the open where they are easily accessible first and then deal with the ones inside buildings after they have frozen or finished decomposing. This may mean burning or demolition of some buildings. Either way the remains end up in the ground whether they are burned or not.
After a mass grave is filled I would place some sort of markers around it or over it to let people in the future know just what kind of ick they may be digging up should they feel the need. perhaps a count of how many people and where they were found could be made and placed on a marker stone.October 21, 2014 at 1:27 pm #27496
I am thinking that for body disposal the safest bet would be to wait until the dry out or finish decomposition. This would take time, but unless you really have to move them to get them out of the way it would probably be the safest way.
Even then I would want to wear the highest level of protection I could get my hands on.
In colder climates it may be better to wait until they freeze then bury or burn them.October 16, 2014 at 3:22 am #27123
This all sounds great so far. My concern about pets is because I heard they killed and incinerated the dog belonging to the nurse there that contracted Ebola in Spain and took the pet (dog, cat, ??) of the second nurse in Dallas and quarantined it somewhere.
This leads me to believe these animals could have somehow transmitted the disease, maybe.
A little paranoia may be a good thing in this scenario.October 15, 2014 at 3:05 pm #27058

I would get the mail after two to three days so there is a lot of mail with gloves and still leave them in the sun for a day. Another way is to microwave them.
Be careful with the microwave. Paper can catch fire if heated in a microwave oven.October 15, 2014 at 2:51 pm #27057

What will that cost the hospital? And then when that hospital is in the news how many will want to go there to be treated for something else? Zero my friend! No one will go there.
On the up side the where be no wait times in the ER.October 15, 2014 at 2:49 pm #27056
Always treat guns as if they are loaded. Even if the slide it locked back or the bolt is removed. The reason for this is very simple.
Empty guns kill people. This was my Dad’s mantra for gun handling when I was a kid.
We have all seen the news report of an accidental shooting because someone thought the gun was empty. They all say the same thing. If I thought it was loaded I would not have pointed it at my friend, sibling, parent, etc.
If you follow this rule you will greatly reduce the likelihood of someone accidentally getting shot.
My Dad taught me this as a child. He would freak out and knock a gun out of your hands and slap you if you pointed a gun in his direction. It was a bit harsh, but my brother and I learned very quickly to always be aware or where the barrel is pointed.
You will notice that people will handle a gun very differently, to the point of complete indifference as to where it is pointed, when they believe it is unloaded. This is not a good practice.October 13, 2014 at 1:04 pm #26765
I think that all it will take is for one elementary school or shopping mall to be blown up by these nut jobs and then a group of Americans will take matters into their own hands and go all vigilante on them. There are two mosques not far from my home. Right now not many people know of them because they maintain a low profile and do not cause any trouble. That will not matter when the news and you tube shows pictures of dozens of dead children while some Muslim group is taking credit for their deaths denouncing the Satan that is America and telling people to convert to Islam or meet the same fate.
Someone will point out there is a place where the Muslims meet nearby and then someone will say that must be where the killers of the babies are and then someone will say lets square this deal and at the next prayer meeting they will be slaughtered. Once it starts it will spill over to include anyone who is not obviously Muslim, i.e. white, black or oriental.
Perception is reality. The truth will not matter. Only what people perceive to be the truth matters. I think people that have a skin tone or accent that even remotely resembles what most Americans perceive to be from the same part of the world as the people who are perpetrating these crimes will become targets. Once group think mentality sets in and people are thinking as a mob there will be little thought given to the true origins of anyone. Decisions will be made instantly and will only take into account the color of skin, clothing and accent of the victims. Anyone wearing a turban or a Burqa will automatically be a target.
Once it is over everyone will either feel justified or horrified by their actions. That will be on an individual level after the mob dies off and people begin to think for themselves again. The terrorists will use this as an excuse to perpetrate more attacks. A lot will depend on how our leaders handle the situation. I think they will demand people remain calm while they screw things up more, I mean handle the situation. Then they will do little or nothing to bring the terrorists to justice (or at least that will be the perception) and they will come down hard on the people in the areas where the counterattacks occur. All this will do is aggravate the situation and create even more problems. Just look at what happened in Ferguson, Missouri. Now imagine what will happen when all of the people in America are no longer divided by race and it becomes Us versus Them with the Us being everyone born in this country who does not worship the moon god Allah and Them being everyone who looks like they might not have been born here and might worship Allah.
Yeah, it is going to be ugly.October 12, 2014 at 10:39 pm #26710
You will never learn too much. Knowledge is power. You may not need it today, but it could save your life someday.October 11, 2014 at 4:00 am #26530

Today class we are going to learn what a pogrom is. Then we will all take to the streets and execute one.
That is pretty much how I see it happening. It will be ugly and brutal and many innocent people will be hurt or killed just because they look or talk a certain way.October 10, 2014 at 3:31 pm #26505
Back when I was in the navy a friend and I had to get off of the trolley in San Diego at a less than desirable location to get back to the base. We were aware of our surroundings and were on our toes. We had heard stories of other sailors being beat up and robbed in the area and it was not long before we were being shadowed. It was two guys. We had to cross a bridge to get back to the base and I told my friend we make our stand on the bridge where we could control the direction they came at us better.
I am a lot bigger than my friend and one of the attackers. My friend looked at me like I was crazy when I told him to engage the big guy. I told him my plan was simple. My friend was a black belt in T’ai Chi so I figured he should be able to hold his own for a couple of minutes while I simply grabbed the little assailant by the scruff of the neck and chucked him off the bridge. Then there would be two of us to engage the other guy.
About halfway across the bridge we turned around and spread apart a few feet making it clear by our postures we were ready to fight back. They stepped out of the shadows and sized us up and turned and went back the way they had come.
My guess is they wanted targets that would be easier to intimidate and it was clear we were ready for a fight.October 7, 2014 at 6:01 pm #26297
Weather is weird right now. 20 degrees and snow flurries at night and 55 degrees during the day. I have purchased all of my extreme cold weather gear and am breaking in my boots. i am going to look around for a pair of snowshoes. One of the truckers told me he has a set in case he breaks down so he can walk out to get help. Sounds like good advice to me since the nearest civilization is miles away from where I work.
I listen to the radio and check the internet from time to time to stay up on current events. I have even looked up ideas for the use of the sweet crude oil we pump out of the ground and I have discovered that it can be run as fuel for diesel engines straight out of the ground in many cases. It is also very very flammable because it is full of natural gas so I could carry some to use as a fire starter or for Molotovs if need be.
I am learning more and more every day from those who were there in previous winters. It would certainly be difficult, if not impossible, to walk or drive out in the dead of winter if the roads are not being cleared so I am facing the real possibility that I would have to tough it out for at least part of the winter. I have quite a bit of canned food at all times and there is game to be taken as well as cattle in abundance. If it all goes to hell and I have to stick it out I will try and hire on to a local farm as a hand or for security or both until I can find a way out.
I believe the real key to surviving is to remain flexible and never give up. You have to adapt to your situation.September 26, 2014 at 5:27 am #25463
Your government works very hard to keep you amused. Pay no mind to the man behind the curtain.
