Yeah, what on earth are these people thinking...crying out for help from the Feds? How ridiculous to expect that The President would do his job, there are more important things to be doing now like stroking Goldman Sachs back, and creating more "councils".

When I first came to ATS, the most common thread and discussion was about government take over, and martial law. That was the huge fear, and the biggest conspiracy.
