Weatherproofed ammunition or match containers

Meals Ready to Eat

Night Vision Devices; night flashlights; gas masks

High capacity magazines

Bi-pods or tri-pods for rifles”

The FBI handout, entitled “Communities Against Terrorism: Potential Indicators of Terrorist Activities Related to Military Surplus Stores” also instructs surplus store owners to:

Who wouldn't be considered a terrorist with this list?

It's beyond absurd!

This is a police state which realizes it is very unpopular, and does not have very effective teeth . . . yet.

MREs as terrorist weapons? Well, why not. How about add baked beans to the list to be safe.

Next Obama will put spies in Walmart, Dunkin Donuts and Family Dollar because he knows they are republican establishments but don’t expect to see them in Starbucks or Targets.

They can kiss my *ss.

As roving gangs of black youth destroy parts of downtown Philadelphia, the FBI wants to know who is buying MREs?

I am ashamed my tax dollars are going towards this.

I have a list that helps me identify domestic terrorists,,

1)visiting camping stores and “instructing” the owners to turn over customer lists
2)Ignoring muslims and focusing on regular Americans doing normal things,
3)universal monitoring and surveillance of citizens,
4)Impeding and supressing free speech,,
5)considering ALL food production as a “homeland security” issue,,
6)Homeland security conducting searches at a high school prom,
7)deliberately destroying our economy,,
etc etc etc..

We are becoming a police state.

great find. thank you for posting this !

none of those items, have been used in any terrorist attack.
if they are laying the groundwork by tracking people buying MRE’s, it makes me worry very much,
WHY?

i do not underestimate them.

Turn it over in your mind: the outfit that sold guns to drug-dealers is suspicious of you wanting to survive.

Yeah, because it's obvious preppers and outdoors types are committing all these acts of terrorism.

This is what you get when you have a racist, lefty douchebag with a chip on his shoulder and a low IQ for an Attorney General.

Well, I figured we already were on some sort of lists anyway. Cross tabs and double crossed checked, what with our WTSHTF preparedness for buying some of the stuff.

This new ‘threat’ won’t have any effect on what we plan to do next.

According to the article, the FBI is instructing shop owners to demand ID for people who buy MREs.

Under what legal authority?

And WHY?

Let’s take a look at the demographics:

Weatherproof match containers: All boy scout and girl scout parents, Everyone on the Gulf Coast (Hurricanes), Everyone in the mountain states who likes to camp.

Tripods and bipods: Every man, woman and child below the Mason-Dixon line. Ten year old girls in Texas get these for their Birthdays. Along with the new Barbies.

Mres: The entire Gulf coast, Florida, Georgia and the Carolinas.

These people have lost their minds.

Savage noted a few weeks ago that the US is, and has been in a state of quiet seige for some time, but most don’t notice it due to the incremental nature of the heat being turned up. The terrorists won. Everyone is now constantly looking over their shoulder, and we are all just one slip-up away from prison for any of a myriad of trumped up charges.

Nest they will want to know who has been buying large quantities of dried beans, flour, rice and ramen noodles. Lets not forget canning jars and lids.

A lot of the stuff mentioned in the handout is stuff I get from my disaster kit.

It is a legal intimidation psy-ops, basicaly. Because when the average joe goes there, he now is going to fear to be labeled a Nazi. THey do the same thing with gun ownership and the Tparty whereby average people are intimidated from listening or getting a gun, lest they feel the curse that it will turn them into some kind of Nazi.

The result is the only ones with guns will be the Nazis, the communists/unions, the government and criminals.

The sheep, the center independent, have got to wake the heck up. A wide mainstreaming organized sale/marketing of such items has to be undertaken.

You have nothing to be ashamed of.

You’re an American.

These assclowns who dreamed this up are the ones who should be ashamed. Not only should be ashamed, they should be publically stripped of any authority and shamed into obscurity.
