Katrina was not a test run for FEMA, it was an epic fail for them. Before Katrina, it was just another useless, inept government bureaucracy. FEMA grew in a different direction after Katrina and has taken on some very suspicious characteristics, but before the flood it was an innocent yet very inept organism. However, they learned much from Katrina and added many strategies to their playbook. Some of their strategies are very scary indeed.The Katrina situation was a test run for these guys.
We are closer to something like that , than you think !A more real scenario would be that the Govt decides to start rounding folks up under some martial law FEMA deal. This really could happen if things don't improve in this country. The Katrina situation was a test run for these guys. I see Ft Polk in the vicinity with lots of tents, empty barracks, helicoptors, C rats and the ability to handle large numbers of people and they did absolutely nothing. Do you think they would have left Bush's mom sitting on some roof for three or four days to die? These folks were abandoned to crap and sleep in it in a sports stadium. Try that on a nationwide basis. There aren't enough cops and I doubt that when push comes to shove the Army is going to turn on their own families. Shut off the fuel to this country and see what happens, kill the power, let the dollar dissolve into worthlessness.
The difference would be: lots of people have guns but are they willing to use them? I recall the LA riots when the gun shop owner was standing out front with an AR15 and the looters just walked up, took it away and looted his store. If he was smart he would have been INSIDE and when they came in, they are free game. A few blocks away the Koreans were on the roof blasting shotguns at anyone who came close, they were very willing to shoot, they were not looted. We have a lot more to fear from FEMA or the Department of Homeland Security than any disaster.
As soon as the deadbeats in Europe default on the money they owe, the financial house of cards will come tumbling down, taking the U.S. and China with it! What will people do when the money they thought was safe, is suddenly gone, with no explanation of where it went! I think a LOT of rifle scopes will be being dialed in for a lot longer range, with Wall street and the 535 in D.C. being considered fair game! Things could get REAL interesting.:bandit:We are closer to something like that , than you think !
Kinda like that guy the other night that made the catapult or whatever out of metal studs to throw those large 4 point throwing stars..I just laughed, those things were going about 30 feet in the background. You could throw them by hand farther. Their overall protection plan was pretty bad.It's a cool show, and I have learned some neat stuff, but for the most part 80% of the people are ridiculous.
