You can get even more muffins with some ICBM's and a small guerrilla army outfitted with prototype AEK-971's and a couple of technicals. I would like to see someone try to attack me..pfft my highly trained rebels would dispatch them within seconds. And if needed an ICBM or two can win the fight.

Yeah. And with a tuned scalar interferometer, you can wipe out entire cities from over the horizon. Some serious muffins.

What is this "tuned scalar interferometer" that you are talking about? Sounds very interesting...

It might have something to do with the riots that will happen after Obama loses this election. It most definately will affect major cities, and may spill over into smaller communities. You won't hear people yelling this out, but just like their voting intentions going unnoticed by the MSM and the polls, these people are silently getting ready for outrage of the masses, they will be prepared.

I am.


Well there are two scenarios that could cause race riots.

1) Obama loses for whatever reason.

2) The 3 groups that have been stopped from killing him
are made footnotes by the group that manages to do it.

#1 will be bad enough, #2 and you might see every major
city in the US turn into something that makes the Watts riots
look like a walk in the park.

My plan is to bugout from the city, and several friends are joining me.

If and when it happens to obama I am not sticking around to
defend my pile of 2" x 4"s with my life, insurance can rebuild
it better and modern.

If you have irreplaceable valuables you might consider storing
them for a few months away from any major city.

Good Luck to you all !

I don't think buying firearms is on the "upswing" because of the election and possible large scale violence. I think it is our dying economy and it's circumstances. When almost everyone is out of a job, no where to live, and can't feed their families, violence will be the "rule of the day" to survive. It is coming I fear. What needs to happen is if this does come to pass, people should take their anger out on the government and not each other. I believe we should be able to own guns. I think that is our right as an American. People are preparing for the worst and I hope for the best.

the worst thing that can happen to anyone is to watch your children suffer, and its truely amazing just how far any parent will go to keep from seeing there child or children from starving. In other cases certain individuals care so much about themselves they will even go further,

So buy Food and GUns to protect it

simple enough...

I, personally am slightly peevish to even reply here, but I'm going to anyway.

The past 2 weeks at the shooting range I go to it has been SO VERY BUSY. I go at odd hours and days because of my job and have had to wait to shoot, wait to buy stuff, etc. The range has been full 1/2 the time I've gone.

Yesterday while I was waiting 30 minutes to get checked out from shooting, I saw 2 rifles, 3 handguns (don't know what kind), 2 concealed carry holsters, and at least 20 boxes of ammo sold, probably more. The reason I had to wait is that all of the people there were asking questions, lots of questions. These were not experienced gun owners at all.

Everyone there is kinda spooked acting. Maybe it's contagious.

I have a gut "uneasy" feeling and don't exactly know why so I'm making sure I'm good with my weapon. It is feeling instinctual, if that makes sense.

i posted this before. check out what the guy says on here between 2:00 and 2:14. pretty weird i.m.o. anyway its still a good video and you should definitely pick up an ak-47. there cheap,plenty of cheap ammo, tough as nails and reliable as hell. so you give up a little long range accuracy, who cares at least you know the gun will fire.

We have been stocking up on extra food and ammunition since last summer...Rice and beans get old quickly but they will keep you alive. Keep this in mind if the SHTF you will not be able to rely on Uncle Sam to save you ..."Remember Katrina ". You will have to save yourself and your loved ones. Money ,Ammo, food ,and water, you will need this to survive. And if you have a firearm know how to use it , if you do not have one get one now! We are living in very dangerous times, and most likely it is going to get worse...Prepare now!

Another thing to think about if people were thinking in the back of there mind about getting a gun the economics of today made there mind up for them and gave the the motivation to get it taken care of immediately and not mull it around any longer or delay it. Kind of a catalyst that made them get motivated..

The real dangers in a situation is the ones that didnt think about it and got one last minute and or stole or killed for a gun.. but by that point .. the poo has already hit the fan.

Tell your friend three things:

- A .22 Rifle is no self-defense firearm.


I beg to differ. If you know how to use it, and where to hit with it, it can be a most lethal tool. I've shot .22's since I was 13. I am now 31. I can knock the head off of a nail at 100 yards with it. My .22 of choice is my Mosin Nagant Polish trainer rifle. Single shot, bolt action. One shot means you tend to make them count the first try. It's dead accurate, and has almost no recoil. One shot to the temple is all it takes to bring any man down. There are many other points to drop someone with a .22 in one shot. You just have to know where. And they make .22 LR Hollowpoints as well, and they are nasty little boogers.

I currently live with my parents, because i lost my job. My mother absolutely refuses to allow any real firearms in the house. Told me if i bring a gun into her house, i'd be thrown out. I had to stash my weapons at a friend's house...but he lives a half hour away, so i don't have ready access to my weapons. I'm stuck with friggin airsoft and paintball for defensive measures (aluminum-jacketed airsoft rounds, and a limited quantity of pepperballs for the paintball rifle) people like me and my family are going to end up in a world of sh*t, because "guns are bad"....can't want to start my new job and get some money, so i can move out of here, and rearm.

Not only are gun sales up but so is alcohol sales/consumption.

What a great combo huh? I think both sides of the aisle will be super pissed if their party loses.... throw more guns and booze into the mix and maybe we can really bring in the new year with a bang!

In a way, if you play it smart, there is some money to be made in the Stock Market during these trying times. Like investing in Beer, porn, whiskey, cigarettes, etc..

Well at least while people still have money they can blow.. But think about it.. Alcoholics are probably drinking more (especially if they've lost money), people are probably using more tobacco products to ease their nerves, and people just like porn because if you have the other 2, why not the pron?

The American Dream

So let's see: we've got a bunch of people running around chain-smoking, drinking booze, buying guns and reading porn.

God I love this country.

I imagine most people would have to merge one of those activities with Church in order to make time
