  • Quote of the Day

    Posted by Jonathan on February 28th, 2009 (All posts by )

    I don’t think people are thinking overthrow of the government. I think the prevailing sentiment is anarchy, which coincidentally fits right in with law enforcement buying and training sprees.
    Bubbling right below the surface, I think there’s an unspoken sense of alarm that there’s a great deal of social unrest, political outrage, economic turmoil, force-fed liberal social spending, a growing sense of cynicism about the effectiveness of our legal system, and the very likely prospect of a major terrorist attack. All managed by an out of control Congress and a dangerously ideological new president while the rest of the world’s economies circle the drain. All things considered, the future is not looking so bright.
    In that light, stocking up on guns and ammunition sounds like a common sense act of prudence. It’s not just for right-wing, knuckle-dragging, Bible-thumping hate-filled conservatives any more.

      That is indeed an excellent comment. It is clear that a system failure of some type is on the cards. On top of the massive expansion in debt being laid down poste haste by the new administration, in combination with the suppression of business by new regulations and taxes, there is also the matter of the massive unfunded public liabilities which are about to be called in by the Baby Boomers as they start to retire in earnest. Perfect storm coming up in, say, 5 years?
