When I was competing I shot more than this in a training cycle. Just a little perspective. Though, it doesn’t really change the fact that the weather nerds are buying ammo. Merely an observation.
Anyone know why you can’t actually track a package sent via the US Postal Service and that you can through UPS, FedEx, etc?
Because the USPS is a government make-work program run by people who feel the state owes them employment, stellar benefits, and a six figure pension.
Your fellow neighbors in suburbia rant, rave, and bitch about waste such as this, though if you were to take that fixed cost stamp away from them, they would mourn their “right” to postal service.
You think about that and how it impacts your AO and subsequent battle space.
Codrea said a while back (paraphrased):
“There is no way the first black president will fire the first black attorney general.”
And hey listen, it’s not about the dude’s skin color. It never has been. That’s just ‘the other hand’ moving in another circle. I maintain that Holder is doing such a good job where he is that OPFOR would be outright insane to pull him out. He is too bloody effective.
Keep training. Keep up the PT. Stack it deep.
I didn’t know this either. Shame on me:
JP Morgan makes a profit by issuing food stamp cards. Did you know that? I didn’t. I assumed it was a government agency (which is bad enough). But, according to the article, JP Morgan made more than $5 Billion net last year by running the program for FedGov.
One in seven. I shared this with Mrs. Matson last night. Asked her contemplate when seven of her and her pals were in the same room.
This is your battlespace.
Guys, I’m here to tell you. I went from zero to 80% autonomous with about $600 and five working days. Figure out how to get that production cost down to even half of that and you have just out OODA’d dotgov by millions of dollars.
Guess what? Your ROI is way shorter.
The possibilities are endless.
I’ll be honest here. I reside in a place where LEO’s (for the most part) are scared excrementless of the population. The local constabulary knows not to mess with us regardless of what the feds say.
False information. Simply not true – so say the locals. Apologies for the bad intel.
Clearly, in light of the above, if you purchase food storage, along with any other preparedness items, you should be concerned about those purchases being tracked and your name winding up on some government list. But don’t let that stop you from storing food and other essential supplies, and don’t let this disturbing incident keep you from using your local Mormon cannery to do so. You need to get prepared. But do it while following the advice of James Wesley, Rawles over at www.survivalblog.com, who repeatedly urges his readers to “think OPSEC!” – if at all possible, buy with cash and pick it up in person, just like the customers of this particular cannery did, which left the “agitated” agents empty handed and frustrated. Good. That is as it should be. Don’t make it easy on them. And if you have not yet begun to store food, now is certainly a good time to start. You’re going to need it. Time is short, and you need to be prepared for what is coming. “Are You Ready?” indeed. – Stewart Rhodes
Found this via morning forum reading. It does seem as if there is a coordinated effort to track this stuff, or at the very least, appear to track this stuff.
On one hand you look at the DHS/FEMA sites and they ask, “Are you ready?”, while the other hand looks to investigate and prepare lists of eeevil people who store food and ammo. Typical dotgov. Idiocy on a level only reserved for them.
The saying still goes: Watch the other hand…
Your pension funds, your retirement accounts, and your savings will be raided and used to further the agenda of the state. It will be legal, and most of you will be cheering it on.
Not a political blog. Never will be, though I believe that the following will have drastic impact on FREFOR/OPFOR going forward.
A few predictions and opinions:
- Romney will emerge as the clear Republican lead and get the nomination. This is based on my suspicion that he already has it sown up and this debate cycle with the rest of the crowd is merely theater to show the populace that they do indeed have some kind of say in big party politics.
- Obama will win in 2012. Not by the same margin as before, but will eek out a victory and spin it as a crystal clear mandate that he is indeed the chosen one who will in the soon to be immortal words of Chris Rock, “Get his real gangster shit on…”.
- #gunwalker, while horrible and infecting dotgov across the board, will fizzle and be replaced by something just as bad that will also be ignored by 99% of the Fourth Branch of Government.
- To distract from the #depression, dotgov will launch some kind of offensive on Iran. This will happen in the next 12 months. Whether it will be initiated by the Israelis is of no consequence. The engagement will eventually become a US operation.
Merely opinions. YMMV.
