ZOMBIE ALERT issued by Homeland Security (Big Sis Gets One Right?)
NEW YORK DAILY NEWS ^ | Friday, September 7, 2012 | Rheana Murray

Zombies

The ‘alert’ was a humorous way to give advice to citizens on how to prepare for such real threats as hurricanes, earthquakes, pandemics and terrorist attacks.

If zombies take over, the government wants you to be prepared.

The Homeland Security Department warned citizens on Thursday that the “zombies are coming,” and urged them to be ready for a walking-dead apocalypse, The Associated Press reported.

The zombie “warning” is part of a public health campaign calling for citizens to be ready for disaster — to know to stock up on food, batteries and water, and to keep extra changes of clothes and medication on hand.

Of course, those same preparations will also come in handy in case of a hurricane, earthquake, pandemic or terrorist attack, and that’s the idea behind the campaign.

In an online seminar, emergency planners were told to use zombies to get their point across that emergency preparation — for anything — is important.

The Centers for Disease Control used the same tactic last year with its zombie apocalypse social media campaign. The agency posted a blog post with detailed recommendations of how to survive a zombie attack.

A CDC spokesperson explained at the time that the campaign was introduced to get Americans interested in its annual campaign for hurricane preparedness.

“I worry we try the same thing every year and I didn’t know how many people we were actually engaging,” Dave Daigle of the CDC told The Los Angeles Times. “Let’s face it — preparedness and public health are not exactly sexy topics.”

In a statement, the CDC later confirmed it does not know of any zombie-like virus or condition.

“to know to stock up on food, batteries and water, and to keep extra changes of clothes and medication on hand”

I’m corn-fused right now, isn’t stocking up exactly what Homeland Security notices as signs of extremism? Ya know...right wing extremism?

Just saying.....

This was talked about on another thread. The Homeland Security people say in that information to prepare for TWO DAYS to give you time to get to a FEMA refugee shelter.

I’m not going to their shelter, ever. You go ahead and prepare a two day emergency kit and head on to the FEMA shelter - good luck.

Meant to ping you to the post I just did.
See, they only want you to have two days of preps, then you have to depend on them to keep you alive after that.

How much ammo does the government recommend for a zombie apocalypse? If I promise to sneak it across the border to a Mexican drug lord, can I get a fast and furious gun from the ATF?

Buy with cash at various outlets.

Getting rid of cash is the next level of control.

There are Zombies, just not the kind from George A. Romero films. And they have been fed from the Government’s stash for years now. But they have been caught on film:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o2Ykj92c9v8

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fnpqBb_7PJ4

These and many more like events show (Flash Mobs, OWS, etc) that we have a large entitlement minded population that is violent prone. I think that during a collapse you will see many small businesses wiped out by flash mob looting, and once started it will quickly spread to rape, robbery and murder for murder sake. You will see what I call ‘pocket pogroms’ and if you ain’t ‘Amish’ you better not be around when they come.

I am very much in agreement of the author of this article about what we can look forward to:

When The Music Stops – How America’s Cities May Explode In Violence

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2926391/posts

Many of these ‘zombies’ will think no more about killing you to get ‘stuff’ than zombies in the last horror flick and do it just as gruesomely as any of the worse scenes in those same movies

Many of you who have read my post know I often refer to this quote from Star Trek Deep Space Nine:

“Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: The Siege of AR-558 (#7.8)” (1998)

Quark: “Let me tell you something about Hew-mons, Nephew. They’re a wonderful, friendly people, as long as their bellies are full and their holosuites are working. But take away their creature comforts, deprive them of food, sleep, sonic showers, put their lives in jeopardy over an extended period of time and those same friendly, intelligent, wonderful people... will become as nasty and as violent as the most bloodthirsty Klingon. You don’t believe me? Look at those faces. Look in their eyes.”

It has repeated throughout history been shown that this is what happens to people once placed under such stressful conditions and yet you would be surprised how many people don’t realize the transformations that can take place under such conditions. And because of their ignorance many won’t even live long learn.

If you want to learn what happens I suggest you read some of Selco’s firsthand experiences in Bosnia:

A Survival Q & A: Living Through SHTF In The Middle Of A War Zone

Clearly there’s a storm coming, as great as a hurricane and like you do when a hurricane comes your way you either prepare to weather it or you become a victim of it.

For those who are just starting or are old hands at prepping you may find my Preparedness Manual helpfull. You can download it at:

http://tomeaker.com/kart/Preparedness1j.pdf

NOTE! THIS IS A FREE DOWNLOAD. I DO NOT MAKE ONE CENT OFF MY PREPAREDNESS MANUAL!

For those of you who haven’t started already it’s time to prepare almost past time maybe. You needed to be stocking up on food guns, ammo, basic household supplies like soap, papergoods, cleaning supplies, good sturdy clothes including extra socks, underwear and extra shoes and boots, a extra couple changes of oil and filters for your car, tools, things you buy everyday start buying two and put one up.

As the LDS say “When the emergency is upon us the time for preparedness has past.”

Or as the bible says: A prudent man sees danger and takes refuge, but the simple keep going and suffer for it.
NIV Proverbs 22:3

“There is no greater disaster than to underestimate danger.
Underestimation can be fatal.”

Aren’t the four greatest needs in a zombie invasion, gasoline, shotguns, chainsaws, and dynamite?

One thing that cannot be over-emphasized is that your own health and physical conditioning is the most important element of your preparations.

Leviticus 25 is God’s plan for survival; can you handle it?

Its a tough program that is intended for an entire nation.

Glacial Ammonium Hydroxide (like for blueprint machines) in large plastic spray bottles will protect you in places where you can’t carry your gun.

Its more selective than teargas, but very effective if sprayed in their faces.

LOL!
And Occupy can breed without converting humans, making them more dangerous than zombies who can only convert.

Courteous of them to warn you of the Democratic voters that will soon be converging on the polls.

Liberals want humans to be an endangered species. They’d probably give zombies protection just to achieve “population control”.
