Perhaps they're removing all the hidden cameras from the washrooms.

Possibly hiding illegals they don't want anyone to find out about?

Yep, pure union busting. Close store using phony claim, make current employees reapply for their old jobs. Only those jobs go to newer, younger, and much lower on the pay scale hires.


I was going to withhold my comments regarding unions but, hopefully you can help me understand something.

What exactly is the problem with a company going out of business? If the numbers are there, unions will get what they want, if it isn't the company folds. How is that union busting?

Now I understand that Walmart, Inc. itself isn't going out of business here and that changes things a bit but, this quandary has me confused.

I am totally against public sector unions but, I am for free association for private citizens so private unions are fine.


The only reason that the average working man/woman, isn't working in medieval conditions, is because of unionised labour. It means the rich haven't got fifty cars only twenty five, and six condos instead of twelve. But things are rapidly returning to the pre nineteen twenties condition before wealth was invented for the common man. All those head bashing rights, fought for tooth and nail , were for nothing. Poverty? you aint seen nothing yet.

I disagree completely.

My question is how do you force businesses to stay in business?

Makes you wonder if 'BlackJack' has something to do with what's covertly going on behind the backs of the 99%.
Black Jack is a series that appeared up in the London UK times showing several big cities around various countries being Nuked, People were furious and called into the paper by the droves only be told to bugger off. I forget which news paper it was. There was no Author for this series, no names just an anon creator.

It's shock testing the area and learning the alternate routes of supply that people will use, learning their patterns when basic items become scarce. I think it's connected to the Jade Helm exercise so far as an intelligence gathering operation. It makes it easier to pick out the preppers.

Maybe it is around this time that I should say something because I seem to already be getting harassed at this point..

Have you guys noticed buildings being run by someone else than they say it is.. Specifically large buildings with New Strong looking metal fences and concrete ramming barriers around them?

Ever notice them and try and do research on them.. Noticing that all the cars parking there seem to be ex or current military types?? Noticing the addresses don't come back as a building.. Noticing the phone numbers for the supposed purpose are a cover.. Noticing they all have a standard, Federal look.. Anyway.

I've been moving around a bit lately and seen this in a few different towns. There are people in and around these places that didn't like me giving them odd looks. People carrying around body armor, and wearing sunglasses, but not driving cop cars. And I do mean body armor, like I had in the Army, not bullet proof vests.. Body Armor.

I also noticed something VERY ODD... Where I had to work.. Under DHS.. There was an office building, the place I worked for had.. It was near a Mall. This Mall was CLOSED. Abandoned... Except I didn't drive at the time.. So I would have to wait for the bus at this "Mall." Make it clear I worked at an Airport, just the company office was here..

I would walk around it looking at it, and then I noticed Strangeness on a few occasions.. People in these trucks who would ask me if I knew if the mall was open or not.. And then ask me where I was from. I started noticing they all acted the same, and started noticing their cars would park at this abandoned mall. So I start checking all the doors, they're all locked all with Closed signs on them.. The inside was in need of repair.

But Then I saw people cooking food in the Mall for these same guys, who were acting all weird for me being there. Then I saw these same guys at the Airport, and they obviously had similar badges to mine. Cooking food in a closed mall, so I wanted some, but the door still said closed, and it was still locked. ODD these things I notice.

That place was crawling with scary looking people.. Lot's of cars with military patch logos, and what not..

I'm sure I'm on lists.. But like I always say.. I'm a nice peaceful guy.. No need to worry about little old me. Just want to be left alone.



It looks like we are getting close.

Well, one thing I know is that Walmart uses it's own contractors, not local. That's the big reason Walmart didn't get built here in my small town over a decade ago, because the local plumber's union got their lawyers, fought it, and used the EIR for their defense and won. It is quite possible these particular Walmarts used shoddy contract labor and materials and are experiencing for themselves the high cost of low prices.

Was writing a post and it magically disappeared

It always seemed odd to to me that the gov would announce where they were going to do jade helm. Who does this when they want to know they want to blend and not be noticed. Announce it to the world so no one will notice or be looking for unusual activity?

My thought was they are not doing it in the locations named and this is a first attempt at starting riots so they can have an excuse to go after real people.

And then there is the rumor mill. Who would actually think sudden plumbing problems would close down 5 distant stores with 5 hours notice for 6 months. Get the conspiracy going and rile up more people and maybe some militia. Perfect scenario for the gov.


Livingston is a town in Polk County, Texas, United States. The population was 5,335 at the 2010 census. It is the county seat of Polk County.[3] It is seventy-five miles north of Houston. This town was settled in 1835 as Springfield. Its name was changed to Livingston and became the county seat of Polk County in 1846.[4]


Small town with one Walmart and likely the only large store in town.

This may seem far out to some but I no longer trust anything said by my gov and trust no one.

You don't you just ,make it plain that they are in a human society, and must adhere to the most basic social rules to preserve that society. Like pay a living wage, and treat employees with a modicum of respect. We've been through all this before. The Quakers did that and had good businesses that stood the test of time . They didn't need Unions because they had that enshrined in their operating fabric, its not rocket science that if you screw enough people, in the end you will get screwed. Which is bad for everyone. The rich will always take the easy way out , rather than have to use their heads like privatise the Blue chips, which just screws people for basic commodities, and pushes the price up. Rather than pay a decent wage which allows people to spend more, in the businesses that the rich will own anyway.

Nah, a real prepper wouldn't reveal themselves in that way, would they? I'm thinking, if I were a prepper, I wouldn't go to the store and buy 50 candles and 50 bottles of aspirin and 50 cans of food at the same time. Maybe 5 candles and a bottle of aspirin and 10 extra cans each week. Way less suspicious looking. The way I figure it, most real preppers will be smart enough to already know that, right?

Obviously, I'm not talking about the idiots on reality shows waving their 100 gun collection around and shouting come and take it. Those aren't real preppers.

If its Walmart, you can bet your candy arse its something shifty.

The people in these cities should take advantage of the situation and toss a few molotov cocktails into sporting goods.


Have you seen the quality of the merchandize at Wall-of-farts? I think they call the department Sporting Bass.

That's what I thought.

"I have arrived at the conviction that the neglect by economists to discuss seriously what is really the crucial problem of our time is due to a certain timidity about soiling their hands by going from purely scientific questions into value questions. This is a belief deliberately maintained by the other side because if they admitted that the issue is not a scientific question, they would have to admit that their science is antiquated and that, in academic circles, it occupies the position of astrology and not one that has any justification for serious consideration in scientific discussion. It seems to me that socialists today can preserve their position in academic economics merely by the pretense that the differences are entirely moral questions about which science cannot decide."

The Walmart here in Midland is contracted out to a local plumber who serves a lot of big businesses in west Texas. He has a contract with them so they were supposed to call him first for their plumbing issues. Like I said in my last post he just recently did a check on the plumbing and his results showed no issues. He said it doesn't take 6 months to fix the plumbing. He also said he could replace the whole thing in 2 months. 4 weeks to take it apart and 5 weeks to replace and repair any damage to the flooring/walls

New Memory.... These places I spoke of in my previous post.. They are all near Large food storage areas... Specifically wallmart comes to mind as being right next to the scary body armor guys.. I never thought about that before.. Went down the road in my mind, and the Walmart is probably .10 of a mile away.

And that other place had a whole abandoned mall. With FOOD being cooked in it...

Hmm..

Easy enough to find and mark most, like off ATS.

So they load people in trucks and haul them off during jade helm and everyone thinks drill Lol!
