Well said Mel! And we do appreciate the thread you've started here, we can all add to it as we find more info and such. It's a very odd feeling to
look on those maps and see bases that I grew up around, being used for these camps! I think I've been over every inch of McClellan AFB and Mather
AFB in Sacramento, California while growing up, my dad was military and retired, and worked at McClellan as a civilian. Summers I used to go in there
with my friends and while waiting for the movie on base to start we'd run around and act like the fools we were. We did all our shopping (food
and everything else) on base. Took our pets to the vet on base. Bowled, swam in the pool, went to movies, ball games, dances, the gas station, car
repair, everything we needed was on one base or the other. When my sons were growing up, we lived nearer to Mather AFB than McClellan, and I was in
the military during the vietnam era, so my sons got to run all over Mather the way I did McClellan while growing up. My sons learned to drive inside
Mather AFB. (Those were the days, eeeek!) lol.. When I was in the military, I was stationed at Camp Pendleton and Barstow as well. Both of those
bases are in So. California, and are also being used now for these camps. When we went back to Sacramento not too long ago to visit
family/friends, I checked out Mather AFB (which is now "closed" to the public). Fortunately, having scoured every inch of that place when growing
up, I knew the 'back roads' in, and OMG that's where they have been building several bldgs for these camps! Out in the back-40, where hardly
anyone goes. sigh... So I know it's true, I've seen these bldgs out in the middle of nowhere, where there has been only fields for as long as I can
remember. (And ermmmm that's longer than I care to mention! hehe) It's so sad to see places where I have fond memories being readied to be used
by FEMA and the gov't in these ways.
You are right Mel, my family/friends think I've gone off my rocker when I explain these things to them. My oldest son even got angry with me, mostly
because he doesn't want to think I might be 'losing it' or something. I keep trying to get them to open their eyes and look around them, at what
is hidden in plain sight right under their noses. Unfortunately, they and so many people (sheeple) like them are just blind! They think America has
always been and always will be the greatest country in the world, and how possibly could anything like this happen in a country like ours. sigh.. Am
thinking the majority of Americans feel this way, and just continue on their blind way, not paying attention to things around them, not knowing or
believing there is a need to. We have been SOOOOOOO spoiled in America for soooooo long, who would think we'd be in danger now from anyone, let
alone our own gov't??
It's very hard to know the truth, and try to warn others, try to help them see it, but watch as they go hippity-hop on their merry way. Of
course it's going to take a huge percentage of Americans to stand up and say to our gov't NO WAY!!!!! as one collective group. That's gonna be
very hard to do, as the majority don't or won't believe anything dangerous is going on. Look at how the media is treating Rosie O'Donnell, who has
been using her position on the View to get some of these truths out. Commentators on the media are treating her as though she's losing her mind,
saying she should be fired etc. sigh.. It's not like she's the first one to say any of the things she is saying, it's all over the net, by tons
and tons of people. Yet the media treats her and what she's saying like they've never ever heard those things before. And so many Americans
believe what they hear from the media as 'the honest to gosh truth'.. While the media just continues to lie and pull the wool back over their eyes.
It's hard to know how to fight against that! Just hope that more and more folks find their way in here.
