Blackwater Contracted to Evict People in Foreclosed Homes
CHICAGO (AP) – Sources have just confirmed that mortgage loan companies are contracting with Blackwater Worldwide to assist in the eviction of people still living in foreclosed homes. Though Blackwater Worldwide has not yet confirmed this, we have several reports of Blackwater contractors stealthily lurking through Chicago in full military fatigues with camouflaged furniture dollies and armored moving vans.
An unnamed Blackwater source has shared with us that he and several other Blackwater employees have undergone intensive moving training. “Many people think our only job is to kill and torture. This isn’t so. We undergo weeks of training in the art of wrapping valuables and box labeling. Just last week, we blew up a townhouse, moved it to a ¾ acre lot with a view of the lake and pieced it back together. That's customer service.”

Thank you for straightening that out for me.
The financial collapse is bad enough but this actually put terror in my heart for a moment.
When people post something that serious and that wrong they should get docked a few points or a warning at least.
Thank you for letting my heart start to beat normally again and not having to worry about calling paramedics to defib my heart.
Star to you.

Blackwater can't fight as good as U.S. troops.
Do not fear Blackwater, fear the U.S. Military.
A dedicated militia of concerned citizens could best a unit of Blackwater if it was on the militia's turf, the militia had time to set up beforehand, and the militia was properly armed. Blackwater is the equivalent of a security company, this ranks well below a national army or special ops team. In fact, with all advantages and disadvantages added, if Blackwater is on the offensive in an unknown area of dense terrain, and the defending militia is well fortified and dug in, the Blackwater guys will not sit there and fight their way into town. It isn't worth risking their lives to them just to evict people to get a paycheck. No, they'll turn around and leave with their tails behind their legs while the militiamen cheer, only to realize that U.S. Army Apache helicopters have been deployed in the meantime and are right on top of them. *cut cut cut cut!* (shells start pouring out matrix-style) ... and our lovely militia is dead! (
I'm not suggesting that we form armed militias to combat Blackwater security as they try to evict us from our homes. That would be too drastic and make me look like a terrorist, and get my name placed on some watch list, red list, or blue list?
So don't actually form militias, form tea parties, and just bring the rifles to the tea party to dismantle and clean while chatting, just like old ladies do with knitting groups, they chat while knitting mittins.
We will chat while polishing firearms?
