“As long as they stay the hell out of Arizona and move to Washington or Oregon.”
No thanks–the last thing we need is more hipsters and ultra liberals from California!October 14, 2014 at 9:59 pm #26982
Just got back from the store(s). I started off by buying a 5 pack of Ramen noodles, along with anti diarrhea meds, Gatorade, and two cliff bars. Realize I bought all this at the dollar store, so I would rather not use that except in an emergency…..
Next I went to a sporting goods store, and picked up 50 water purification tablets for $10, and a compass-whistle-flint multi tool thing for around $4.
Finally, I stopped by a chain grocery store and picked up a can of peaches and a bag of beans.
So far, did I sound like I was shopping for the right stuff?October 14, 2014 at 6:05 pm #26955
For today on my shopping list, I have:
Water purification tablets ( 1 vial of 50)
Rice in small bags
a few power bars.
I already own a couple of knives, a weird multiscrewdriver thing,and a hand crank radio/flashlight.October 14, 2014 at 3:16 pm #26938
Thank you all for the advice. I should be going to the store later today to pick some stuff up.
As for what my “trigger” will be, I think I will finally leave when/if the first few cases of Ebola is reported in my city. If it appears in any of the neighboring states, I will also start to make the final preparations to leave.September 6, 2014 at 4:28 am #24267
At the very least, Tolik, we can see finally and fully that Ukraine and Putin really killed the “end of history” idea which was on the skids after 9/11 anyway.
This century promises to have massive changes in store for us.September 5, 2014 at 6:54 pm #24223
Problem is, a lot of US politicians are still stuck in the cold war, even though Islamic terrorism is something that both Russia and the US suffer from.
I wouldn’t be surprised if another attack went down on 9/11, though I can’t say I necessarily I expect one.
Even if something does happen–well, all the better I live in a rural area then.August 23, 2014 at 6:23 am #23051
I was thinking about buying a pellet gun–it seems like a possible alternative to an actual gun in areas with restrictive gun laws, and also for a person operating on a very low budget.August 18, 2014 at 8:40 am #22432
While I think police militarization is a series issue in post 9/11 America, I think the media is selectively using it right now to draw away attention from the real kicker–the race issue.
I mean, where was this media when all this “War on Terror” nonsense was being shoved down our throats? It only counts when black people are hurt then?August 10, 2014 at 1:53 am #21469
I think in that case, I would have said I had a gun, even if I didn’t really, so, it didn’t seem very smart on his part to say “no.”
Still, an awful attack none the less.August 1, 2014 at 5:13 am #20816
I am sorry to hear your father passed away. I wish you all the best in dealing with the funeral.July 29, 2014 at 1:10 am #20542
While I miss cold war dramas too, this does not seem a wise act. Just seems like more politicians trying to act tough, to compensate for the fact that most of them are really useless in defending this country in places where it actually matters (like trade or immigration).July 18, 2014 at 7:08 pm #19271

I have pointed out this before that you are wrong on the Latinos! Are you talking about Mexicans? I live in Miami and I can tell you for a fact that there is no group of Latinos that get along. Cubans do not get along with Mexicans and many of the South Americans do not get along with each other, for example Argentinians do not like Brazilians and the Brazilians do not like the Argentinians too! Colombians some get along with Cubans but they do not like some of the South Americans.
And almost all South Americans do not like the Mexicans so as you can see it is not that simple.
Also the Latins that have had Communism in there countries have a problem with the ones that are left wing voters, for example Cubans, Venezuelans, Colombians and Nicaraguans get along since they understand what it is like for there countries to have communism. Now the Brazilians, Argentinians and Bolivians are very left wing. We do not get along with the left wingers at all.
So there is a problem were there maybe a war between Latins. Tsar Alexander I think that you maybe wrong on the whites too! There are many left wing Dem white and then there are the white southern right wing groups. So it is about the same as the Latins with two groups that do not like each other.
I think that this is something that you need to tell others in your state or where you live, explain to them the two sides to the Latins. I know that my all American friends here see it very clearly since they live here. I personally only trust only my Red Neck brothers and my Cuban friends here with my life. When I was in high school my Red Neck friends would help me with everything like if they were my brothers. Many are all over the country now and still Facebook me. Many have moved to Texas and Arizona. They are always telling me to move there.
So what I am tell you and everyone here is that the Latin thing is complicated. Do not group us together because it is an insult.
Fair enough on the Latino part. I will keep that in mind for the future. Though I did state the “Big 3″ groups; I had no doubt in Areas where the Latino community is made up of multiple nations, there will be a whole sublayer of tension there as well.
As for the white people part, well, the governor of Maryland was all for immigration and amnesty until the moment the immigrants started hitting *his* state, and now all of a sudden he is opposed (at least to immigrants to his state). Granted I think there are a few hardcore liberals really dumb enough to run into the bayonets when the time comes, I think most people will get the message when the bullets start flying, and the federal system collapses.July 18, 2014 at 6:02 am #19157
I think this is another illustration of America slowly inching to a race war. You will have the “big 3″ in most areas:
Whites, coupled with extremist organizations, sheriffs, militiamen, ethnic organized crime (Russian mafia, Italian mob, etc) all melding together into a single new power structure.
Blacks, and their local politicians and organized crime.
Latinos, and their attending social structures.
This is not to mention even more complex local dynamics involving groups like Arabs, Asians, and Native Americans, to name a few.
Somewhere in this stew of upcoming violence will be the federal government. It will likely fail miserably in keeping order, as the “rainbow coalition” of the left is a house divided against itself.
Out goes the idea of “the state,” and in comes the idea of city states, confederations, mafia’s, militia’s, and communes.
This stuff is like a vortex, and initially “moderate” people of all persuasions will eventually be forced by circumstance to adopt extremist positions. It will be a sad day in America.July 10, 2014 at 6:27 pm #18429
I think people are too concerned with the people vs the government aspect of a civil war. It seems this incident is more a indicator of a coming war between different racial groups in an area.
The government is not some totally powerful monolith. If the KGB and Soviet Army could not keep the USSR together (and those guys were a lot more hardcore than anything we have in America), then the FBI, DHS and US Army stand no chance.July 10, 2014 at 5:51 am #18378

The first sign of major violence and feds will be deployed. Cali probably has the largest population of latino gangs and most of them are not far from where this is taking place. If they think for one second they can get away with it they will show up for “suport”. I agree they will start riots and retaliation killings in LA and San Diego. If this fire starts it will spread very quickly and may be hard to put out. It may also be the catalyst obama is looking for to declare Marshall law.
Nationwide martial law is not possible, even Obama knows it won’t work. Certainly it might inflame calls for more “gun control,” but in the end, I think race riots/war would serve to severely weaken, not strengthen the federal government. Realistically, the US Army might be able to control a single region of the country, but no more. Not to mention that many in the military have their…. own… ideas about who’s right in what way.
For instance, this conflict might inform us:
Notice how the early stages of the war were already starting even while the USSR was “going strong,” and had a full KGB and army presence. Also notice the role local and republic (USSR republic=US state) leaders played key roles, including defying Moscow (Washington).
