Likewise in the Netherlands my friend. the pamflets are dropping in the mail and the commercials and interviews are preparing us for disaster. It is so friggin'obvious. Oh well, just weather the storm.

Haven't received any pamphlets here in sunny Kally-phone-ya, yet.

However, a "Pandemic Preparedness" seminar was held recently in one of the public conference rooms at my office (I work for the State government).

There was no publicity, either before or after the event.

I know about it only because I happened to see the poster directing attendees to the conference room on my way out of the building.


Our agency's phone center, I'm told, is to be placed at the disposal of the State's Office of Emergency Services in the event of any state-wide disaster/emergency. To that end, our section of the building (and Only our section) is connected to a natural gas-fired emergency generator.

That generator came in handy during the last major storm: All of the toilets in the building are sensor operated, so no power, no flush. When the lights went out in a major wind storm, we had the only working restrooms in the building; two restrooms for 3000 people!

I think that sounds very scary Bhadhidar, from what nation could your country have reason to worry about, or do you think it is food shortage related?

Well, since it was a "Pandemic Preparedness" conference, I don't think the worry was a in the nature of a threat from any "Country".

Their concern would be more likely the effect of having a significant portion of the work-force, including government officials and emergency personnel unable to work due to illness.

Food shortages would only be a problem insofar as there might not be enough healthy individuals available to insure that stores are re-supplied by transporting the food to where it's needed.

Good thread.

In Canada, we've been bombarded with these ads recently. It is a bit disconcerting. The ads include an ominous church bells sountrack




ANNOUNCER: Are you prepared? In a major emergency – like a flood or blackout - you need to be ready to take care of yourself and your loved ones for at least 72 hours, while emergency workers help those in urgent need. Start today. Prepare your emergency kit. Visit GetPrepared.ca or call 1-800-O-CANADA to find out where to get a kit, or how to put one together. Because we all have a role to play in preparing for emergencies. A message from the Government of Canada.

Could have to do with any number of weapons that will be unleashed against the citizens of the world. I expect a massive depopulation effort very soon.

With genmod bugs (Anthrax Leprosy Pi, anyone?) in the pipeline, HAARP capable of manipulating "heaven (weather) and earth (earthquakes)," false flag "terrorist attacks," and other nefarious manipulation of our species...

I think it's coming at us fast. But some who know this have a soul and compassion, so they're giving us our best shot at survival.

I was going to post saying that up here I haven't sen anything like those flyers, and was wondering if we were set to "go down with the ship". Then I saw your post and remembered those ads. The first time I saw them the only thought I had was "We are so screwed". I am wondering what I would have to prepare for that would take 72 hours. This is the only scenario I could come up with:
1. Power, water, gas shutdown, people go into panic mode
2. This gives whoever the opportunity to "weed" the communities, and commit any other crimes that need to be taken care of.
3. Everything comes back on in a few days and any missing people are chalked up to the panic.
4. All of a sudden we are in need of more "protection"

Of course that is "tinfoil hat" in me coming out.

I found this website a couple months back...
www.ki4u.com...
... and printed out this write-up/list for some good guidelines...
WHAT TO DO IF A NUCLEAR DISASTER IS IMMINENT!


And I don't watch much TV... but I believe the following requested action includes your computer and video games for this coming week...
National TV-Turnoff Week

Purpose: To re-think the role of television, why we use it and how and what for. Assess its impact on students, teachers, parents, children,individuals, etc.

How: Simply switch off or unplug your TV set for seven days and engage in a wide range off substitute activities.

Who: Individuals, children, families, students, groups, etc.

Where: In your homes, schools, libraries, businesses, congregations, etc.

And the official website...
TV Turnoff

Sounds like a very opportune time for the PTB -- that is if people would actually do it
