Obama: In case of anthrax attack, your postman will deliver antidote
The Patriot Room ^ | January 3, 2010 | Clyde Middleton

Posted on 01/03/2010 7:00:14 AM PST by clyde_m

President Obama has authorized the United States Postal Service to deliver self-administered antidotes in the event of a large-scale biological attack. He has also asked for a plan that would use federal guns to protect postguys and postgals while on their delivery route.

Makes you wonder what is behind all these recent EO’s, doesn’t it? Is he paranoid? Is he planning? I think he’s PLANNING!

Great.

This admin CANNOT think outside of the federal government. They are completely convinced that ONLY the federal govt. has the ability to do anything.

The federal gubbermint sees the postal system as a distribution network for goods and information. Years ago, when I was a federal employee with the VA, there was a standard contingency plan for what to do in event of a nuclear attack--report to the nearest post office and await further instructions.

Really.

They are full-bore Communists! They think they and their friends they keep in the Government are the true saviors of society.

The problem is they will never admit any of their failures so when people like us even talk about Government being bad we will get arrested.

If the Dims are allowed to stay in power there will be Gulags in about 15 years.

History repeats itself, especially when people are not educated but told they are the smartest people on earth.

Not "wait" but let them know you were still around by filing a card.

That's still the policy.

Here's the fundamental problem with the Obamista idea ~ technically it's doable. On the other hand with 200,000+ delivery personnel it's not likely there are enough federal troops and gun-toting officials to protect that many letter carriers.

The government would probably need to turn to the NRA to find volunteers to protect the carriers.

Or, alternatively, issue firearms to postal employees!

USPS delivery of your life-saving antibiotics will be between 9 and 4PM Mon-Fri and 9-noon on Saturday, sorry no delivery on Sunday and no delivery to homes with snow or ice on the sidewalks or unrestrained dogs

In case of questions about side effects from the medication, please contact your local libary

Ludicrous. What geniuses they are in the BO administration. Last year, the Post Office was talking about ending Saturday delivery, and scaling back its weekday deliveries. Better hope if the anthrax attack comes, it occurs early in the week, or we’ll be waiting over the weekend for our government-supplied medicine.

If the objective is to use a so-called crisis as a mechanism to declare martial law and suspend further elections, then this makes perfect sense.

Remember, as a Marxist ideologue, zero sees the American public (specifically white Christians) as the real enemy. He is not concerned with protecting the targeted group. In fact, I'm sure he would like to bring a little Chicago-style tactics to bear and do away with them.

If this executive order is real, Obama isn’t simply a fascist. He’s also a nut.

Another brilliant “solution”.

So my anthrax antidote will be delivered to me via the USPS Express Mail One Day Service, whcih means I will receive it in 7-10 days.

Is this a joke? During our last anthrax scare our mailman was so jumpy I expected every day for him to show up in a hazmat suit.

Wasn't there a recent purchase of a large quantity of .40 ammo?

Why, yes, there was!

Winchester Ammunition was recently awarded a contract by the Immigration, Customs and Enforcement (ICE) division of the Department of Homeland Security to supply a maximum of 200 million, 40 cal. rounds over the next five years.

"Going Postal" has taken on a whole new meaning.

Will there be an “opt out” plan where my antidote can come via Fedex?

You really need to take this to the Postmaster. Otherwise, you're complicit by not reporting a crime!

How do all the “undomiciled” get their antidotes? Will USPS deliver to the cardboard box under the bridge?

I agree, but they probably only throw out the third class garbage that I throw out myself. It's postal spam.

The PO needs to raise the rates on that stuff and eliminate it, but they won't because they have a lousy business model.

No, they will be used to justify the raising of a huge 'volunteer' army with arrest power and a data base to enter all 'relevant' information.

I heard a pundit predicting last night that in 2010, the big story would be the rise in home grown terrorist groups. Which sounded dumb, then I remember that Obama has talked about a domestic army as well funded as our armed forces. This prediction may be a good cover story for the O to hire the ACORN crowd into his domestic force.

That’s right. Least we forget, his objective is to have as many unaccountable (to the constitution and American people) forces under his command as possible. He longs for total control. It’s the only way he can validate the ‘correctness’ of his vision. I don’t think that’s a conspiracy theory as much as it is the character profile of a Marxist.

You jest, but already one of my family members depends on the Post Office for delivery of life saving meds, buying thru the insurance mail order is the only way we can afford them. Thankfully the PO has come thru. However, the insurance payments for the drugs are something else again, increase after increase after increase for a drug that has been on the market for years...yes, this is private insurance for which we pay an arm and a leg.

So this is what he means by Nationalized Health Care Coverage? The Postman will by your Doctor AND your Pharmacist.

Hope you don’t need a doctor or meds on Sunday or any other National Holiday.

ROFLMAO!!!
