Only if they know you have accumulated such. Some things can happen at a slow pace.
I would think that providing my Preparedness Manual to the General Public has fairly much marked me as an enemy of the state.
As long as you have followed your manual, and hidden your supplies ... no worries.
I read the article through twice.
There were several things in it that were not quite accurate as I understand it however I would need to research more. It is always possible for me to be wrong. :)
However I do not see anything in the article that supports the title. Could someone please be so kind as to highlight the sentences in question?
We've all been watching you for sometime now...
Don't worry, nobody in gov't sits around monitoring FR........... and if they did, what are the odds they saw some of your survival threads?
Even more ironic, FEMA itself writes manuals on preparing for catastrophic events. So you could be considered a terrorist by the govt by following advice given...by the govt.
What is so moronic about this is that everyone 100 years ago would be a ‘terrorist’ because almost everyone had pantries and plenty of stores of food for weeks.
Since this is obviously designed to turn normal innocent people into ‘terrorists’ because there is no evidence they are, the govt still has to have a way to get rid of them.
Last time I check it had only been down load around 15,000 times. Think someone might notice that?
I was beginning to think I was going blind as I have never found you to post things that were tinfoil hat news.
I don’t consider Judge Napolitano and his Freedom Watch show ‘tin foil news’.
I am sure the Judge would not allow that type of argument to be made in his court and I am disappointed that he is doing it here.
“...we could see American citizens being sent to Guantanamo Bay.”
Not to appear flippant, but many abiding in OBAMAVILLES(tent cities and car interiors)because of this Marxist’s policies, might welcome the warm retreat that is Guantanamo, until this bastard is kicked out the back door in 2012 and the White House fumigated.
“...to thwart embryonic international terrorism.”
All this, and yet, NO ONE seems to give a good damn about the Islamist terrorists cells across the country.
I was looking for it in the article text posted above too.
It’s in the YouTube video link at the top of this thread. At 0:27, Senator Rand Paul says “Someone who has more than seven days of food in their house can be considered a potential terrorist”.
During the Civil War the right of habeas corpus was suspended. Newspapers were closed down. Fortunately, these rights were restored after the war.
***Having More Than 7 Days Of Food Makes You A Suspected Terrorist***
As a child, my Brother-in-law saw this in action during WWII. His family operated a ranch in West Texas and put up their own food for themselves and the hired hands.
One day the LAW swept down and confiscated every bit of food because someone had dropped a dime on them, claiming they were “food hoarding”.
How did they survive? They had another stocked cellar hidden way out in the hills that only the family knew about.
It's a backdoor Obama campaign plot to spirit away Mittens & Huntsman...Mormons are supposed to have a year's supply of food stored.
I have a fully stocked pantry & freezers that can be raided like that.
I also have food stored all over the ranch: deer, turkeys, fruit trees, squirrels, cottontails, berries, perennial veggies...and the means to harvest it.
BTW, I did end up making your mother's fruitcake as per directions (no adulterating embellishments) last winter and it was GREAT! I'll be making more this winter.
Firstly, there are lots of ways to lose fingers, including the use of explosives with no intent to hurt anyone, and, secondly, if they come to lock me up for having too much food or too many guns I will do more than intend them harm.
Possibly a nit, but this doesn’t sound like Abe, “America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter, and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves.”
The thought is exactly his, but I doubt the words are.
We cannot allow the rules to change to fit the whims of those in power - Remember, Chertoff and the SR 511 committee, including Hussein and Hillary, all agreed on the definition of NBC as TWO US CITIZEN PARENTS. Seems to me rules are changed every day in D.C. The usurper has thrown out the Constitution and acts on whims without the need for Congress.
What worked then isn't so easily accomplished these days. Most preppers don't have access to land as far as the eye can see. Many are stuck (yes, choice) on a tiny city lot or even if they're in the country have neighbors too close for comfort in such times. Rural today isn't the rural of just a few years ago. We used to hardly see a dozen cars on the drive to town but now it's constant traffic. Far too many people are moving in and crowding this neck of the woods.
They have the ability to view your spending in real time. Anything purchased with a check or credit card. Many companies collect your phone number as well, which allows them to track your purchases even if you pay cash.
I hope this does not pass. It is not Constitutional.
As far as the 7 days of supplies: this is beginning to sound like the start of the Ukrainian Famine. Not a good sign.
And quite frankly, the numbers of seditious families would be in the 10 of millions.
I wouldn’t be surprised in the least that homeschoolers would qualify under new federal guidelines, since we don’t fall in lock step with the system.
Ping as it is of general interest to homeschoolers.
I wondered how long this would take,
when the “prepping” movement has gained so much steam these days.
They, the elitists, DON’T WANT YOU TO BE SELF-SUFFICIENT.
They want you dependent and controllable.
To paraphrase Ernest Hollings,
“Dere’s too much preppin’ goin’ on out dere...”
Just as with your guns or other preps,
you should have your food hidden in multiple locations.
If they come beating on your door, give them the two buckets of wheat berries you have in your back closet,
THEN GET THE WORD OUT.
Just make sure your personal stash is hidden somewhere really good.
All of our survival food got lost in a boating accident last year.
Is it really choice to live in cities when economic policies have forced so many of us to live there. There simply are no jobs or ability to create wealth outside of the cities.
This week's "House" tv show featured a patient who had a secret stash of weapons for SHTF. The writers had the patient give up his guns and made a point that the one House has is bad, bad, bad. IOW, preppers are insane.
Could you add me to your preppers list? Thanks.
“patient who had a secret stash of weapons”
After we moved and were filling out initial paperwork at our new doctor’s office, one of the questions was, “Do you have a gun in your home?” Sheesh. This type of info, combined with the Obama/GE commitment to a national medical database, is truly frightening.
Standard communist belief - any opposition to communism is a mental illness or defect.
It can be “treatable” with hard labor, and if not, elimination of the person is a mercy.
Guess now I know why the only two network shows played all day in communist China were “Leverage” and “House.”
And people here call Ron Paul a nut. Pathetic.
One day the LAW swept down and confiscated every bit of food because someone had dropped a dime on them, claiming they were food hoarding.
"Local calls placed from public phone booths in the United States cost a nickel in most places until the early 1950s ..." - Wikipedia :)
Whoa, I thought that only happened to us. The new doctor started asking the kids about the guns and how dangerous they were, blah, blah. I almost came unglued but noticed the kids were handling her quite well. Needless to say we filed a complaint and I'm guessing we weren't the only ones because she was gone shortly after that. Hey, we have junk food in the house, too.
The wrong Paul is running for president.
***We used to hardly see a dozen cars on the drive to town but now it’s constant traffic.***
Same here. I moved to the country because I could not stand city living. Last week the sheriff came by and told me I could not let my dogs run free as they were bothering the joggers. Only had joggers since the county paved the road, now, constant traffic and joggers, bicyclists, and others.
**8If they come beating on your door, give them the two buckets of wheat berries you have in your back closet,***
Wonder if they will accept a bucket of chicken scratch?
I guess that makes shopping at Costo a terrorist act.
