Oh man is that a breath of fresh air! Sense has been spoken!
As a survivalist sorta guy i've read plenty about the many, many SitX that could hit at any time so i'm glad the government is prepared for this.
Look at the history of the world many random events have caused population displacement, we have refugee camps all over the world at the moment,
mostly due to war and famine but also illness and poverty are big causes. When an event happens the most terrible damage almost always occurs in the
aftermath, scared and crazy people often driven insane by the horrific things they've seen all over the place -often wildly overreacting or
Back in WW2 both sides had loads of camps, the main cause of death was illness -interestingly the germans had lower death rates than many axis camps
because of the use of ZyklonB to disinfect everything and the policy of removing hair to get rid of lice. The death toll was still massive, both
outside and inside the camps. -sometimes it is necessary to do seemingly dodgy things for the benift of everyone. hehe That's not to say that these
things -ZyklonB for example- can't be used for evil too.
Picture your town being hit with a bioweapon, you and your family are trapped in your house while infected gangs of looters roam the area driven crazy
by the 'rage' virus then a US army jeep pulls up and drives off the deranged people banging at your door and it's followed by a FEMA jeep - they
offer you a lift to the camp, it's well protected, they have foods and are shipping poeple out to unaffected areas of the country -would you still
refuse to go to the camp?
How about a SGE (Sudden Geological Event) suddenly ripping everything three miles east of you into a giant pit of magma and sulfa, the thick poisonous
cloud has started to billow towards you and the air is getting hard to breath. You grandma has already choked to death, you budgie's long gone then
all of a sudden a bus pulls up outside with FEMA in huge white letters on the side, they have a gas mask for you and are delivering people to a camp
for evacuation -you still gonna fight for your right to stay?
one more, how about the economic collapse causes California to break down and armed gangs of looters head for your Nevada home? Your daughter was at
the mall when the looters stormed it and you don't know what's happened to her, that was a few hours ago and now you're in your basement and your
two little sons are crying while your wife paces the room in a panic -you're clutching you shotgun waiting for someone to break down the door looking
for food, ammunition or womenfolk - would you still oppose the idea of locking these people in a fema camp for processing?
One last thing, I am an avid fence climber - before i worked there i always used to clime the security fences to get into the local rock festival, the
short cut from my old job to my house involved a 12foot security fence -in short i can clime a fence, barbed wire on top is no problem for me -not
i'm not saying this to show off, i want to tell you how to clime a security fence with barbed wire on top...
Ok, your standard non-fema security fence you talk about is chainlink design and if you have strong hands you should be able to hold tight and push
out with your knees so you can slowly crawl up it - take small steps and keep pushing into the fence with your knees. Soon you'll be at the top,
here the overhang has three lines of barbed wire supported by a pole -grasp the pole and again brace your feet against the fence. work your hands up
the pole till you hold it near the end and careful to not barb your feet crawl up the wire and over the lip supporting your knee with the non barbed
section of wire. You are now above the lip and able to clime down the other side,
Now with an inverted lip you have to crawl over the top of the fence into an overhanging area of wire which you must then work your way over and under
to get back from the fence to clime down -this is in fact much harder than a 'normal' out facing lip. It's by no means impossible, i tell you this
as someone who has done both directions with a heavy rucksack on, i know my fences
Really i'm a little disapointed that fema didn't use the more secure Y design fence, a lip going either way. Oh and they should have used razor
wire, it's much harder with razor wire -hehe even i avoid it because if you slip or missaim a foot throw it's easy to slice through your wrist,
achilles tendon or something awful like that. The stuff they have stored inside could become the most valuable thing in the area if it's time ever
comes, i don't want some stupid kids breaking in and smashing up the waterfilters which are supposed to keep my friends alive (if too many people
want to use mine it could cause problems)
You shouldn't be trying to stop them preparing to protect you in the event of a emergency, you should be trying to stop secrets in government - force
them to tell you how everything works, what everything is, what all the plans are -nothing good can come of secret plans for disaster management, what
you plan to do if invaded can be secret, what you plan to do if a sitX happens should be widely known by everyone and all meetings about it, reports,
etc should be available on line, no one should be excluded from having their say.
Take away the places bogeymen can hide and we won't need to worry about them.
