I was disturbed by a story of strange goings on in the desert. A little over a year ago, it seems, a new industrial facility sprang up on the edge of town. It was in a remote industrial zone and appeared to be a bus depot. The new enterprise was surrounded by an imposing security fence and bore no outward signs identifying its services. However, it soon became apparent that the compound was in the business of outfitting a fleet of prison buses. Thirty or so secondhand city buses were being reconfigured with prison bars in the windows .....The new Wackenhut operation is shrouded in mystery. It has been running its fleet of empty prison buses night and day, apparently logging miles on a Department of Homeland Security (DHS) contract. Multiple buses can be seen driving all over town and even on remote desert back roads. Oddly, except for the driver and one escort guard seated in front, these buses are always empty......
Recently, a passerby observed what appeared to be a training operation there. In what seemed to be strange activity for 10:30 PM on a Saturday night, the depot yard was fully illuminated, the entire fleet of buses was up and running, and drivers and guards were scrambling around the yard. The question is, what were they training for? .....
........Among the few who have noticed, one theory is that the prison bus depot is simply infrastructure for border security. But if so, where are the illegal aliens? Why are these buses always empty?.........
.........There is another interesting piece to this puzzle. On the desolate plain between Phoenix and Tucson is a tiny town called Florence, Arizona, which features a population consisting largely of prisoners. For decades, Florence has been the home of two of the largest county and federal prisons in the state; and in 2007, a vast new DHS prison was built there as well. Like the Wackenhut buses, this shiny new facility, which literally disappears into the horizon, has gone unannounced and unnoticed by the general public. A new facility for imprisoning illegal aliens?
Al Martin, a retired naval intelligence officer and former contributor to the Presidential Council of Economic Advisors, has linked the remilitarization of FEMA to the civil unrest anticipated along with economic collapse.

Of course Alex Jones believes it. He built his career on peoples mistrust of the government. Which is kind of funny because WE THE PEOPLE control the governments action.
When will you people learn.
The media is controlled by civilians.
The internet is controlled by civilians.
People like Alex Jones and David Icke (Civilians) are so ingrained in their own paranoia, they are unintentional distracting us from keeping things in line. We are allowing the government to go unchecked, our government isn't meant to be unchecked.
I'm not saying Jones and Icke are the bad guys. There are no bad guys in this situation, only misguided ones.
The government cant survive without us, and we cant survive without it (not in the way we want to).

Politics Unlocked : Swine Flu
I found this article interesting this morning.
Senate Set to Confirm Sebelius as Health Secretary
So, the question begs to be asked, is this hyping of the "Swine Flu" pandemic all a smoke screen to get Kathleen Sebelius placed with little to no questions?
President Barack Obama speaks on science and "Swine Flu" yesterday and there's a video. I got that directly from the White House website.
