This gets crazier everyday
Think we’ve all found out that Feudalism didn’t end, we’re the subjects who are the chattel property of the self appointed Overlords.
God Forbid the tax producers should walk away from the catastrophe the tax consumers created.
You want crazy. Dig whats going on with oil futures.
We are on the verge of world wide riots and panic. Here in California, all the masses in the cities need to do is miss 2 days of meals, and those of us living in the rural areas will be overrun. They will strip the land, and kill to take what ever they want.
Somewhere out there, Mister Soros is chuckling in an evil manner.
Nancy Pelosi, Chuckie Schumer and their Democrat Party
are itching to let you into the USA. Just put
a mark where they show you on the ballot they give you.
Well, that’s a new one, even for the deep state. Spray people with tear gas . . . for their health.
“We had to starve the people to death to save them from catching a cold.”
Isolation macht freiheit.
The threads that hold society together are ripping apart right before our eyes.
Probably a few people on here that wished they had used live ammunition instead of tear gas.
The Peruvian killing fields are all urban.
I’d say we are about two weeks away from SHTF in certain areas. It doesn’t take much. Just remember,the left is CELEBRATING the revolution.
Yep, the Left is celebrating it.Here in SLO county, we are in a position to be attacked by the Bay Area or Los Angeles. Both areas are already showing signs of strain. I think it will break within two weeks. And the Left will all blame Trump. The Left has been carefully crafting this to destroy the US in order to win an election
