...Are we now at the "one year earlier" time frame, anyone know? ...
The storyline centers on the residents of Jericho, a small, rural Kansas town, in the aftermath of nuclear attacks on 23 major cities in the contiguous United States. The show also features several mysteries involving the backgrounds of major characters, the perpetrators of the attack, and the extent of damage to the United States and its government.
The Cheyenne government's military forces have since restored order to Jericho and its surrounding region, putting an abrupt end to the conflict between Jericho and its rival New Bern. As a sense of normalcy returns to town, the plot shifts away from the day to day survivalist issues facing Jericho's inhabitants, to life and political intrigue under the new Cheyenne government.
Known only to Hawkins and a select few, the September attacks were neither a foreign nor domestic terrorist act, but a conspiracy of unknown perpetrators within the highest level of the former government.
Meanwhile, Jericho's residents deal with the reality of the Cheyenne-backed government. Initially welcomed as saviors, the government's military and mercenary agents transform life in Jericho into a repressive police-state. When a J&R contractor's criminal actions leave one of Jericho's residents dead, the town is put on the edge of open revolt.

Yeah, that's a possibility....look at the Illuminati card game, (developed in 1990, and out available to buy in 1995, won some kind of games award,) and then explain it, and WE'RE the crazy ones?
(But good luck getting through on this one)
When people see these types of things and act like everyone else is being fooled or crazy except themselves, it just makes me think their heads must be shrinking and squeezing their brains from all that hot sand their heads are hidden in.

Anyone else find the "story line" very similar to the TV show Jericho? Only instead of being limited to the US, the Blackjack story is international. Frankly, I just don't see the point in this effort if it's "fictional."
