Anyone watching the History Channel series 'Vikings?"
Really good, and seems historically accurate how the Vikings got around to invading the English Islands.
The good people of Sharpsburg, Maryland must've thought they were being invaded by Vikings...with helicopters.
Not that the good people of Sharpsburg, Maryland should be awestruck by Gubbmint troops in action. During the Civil War, the Battle of
Sharpsburg/Antietam went down in history as America's single bloodiest day of fighting.
Though no shots were fired when the FBI agents came a'storming prepper Terry Porter's house. Somebody anonymously turned in Mr. Porter as a
survivalist. I don't know if any reward is forthcoming to said anonymous tipster.
But Mr. Porter was busted for some kind of drug violation back in 1992, and it took a Viking like horde of 150 Federales to storm Mr. Porter's Casa.
The Vikings confiscated four shotguns and three rifles.
What caliber, I do not know. Will any of the long rifles be donated to the Tucson Police Department, I do not know.
Heather Hamilton, one of Porter’s neighbors, mentioned, “You had helicopters flying over, SWAT crews down here, excavation equipment was brought
in, and armored vehicles.” Hamilton went on to say, “It was ridiculous for [the man] who would not hurt another person for anything. Unless you
would attack him, he’s not going after anyone.” She concluded by saying the raid was a “big waste of taxpayer money.”
And some days citizens simply wonder why real crime is so rampant in America.......when the FBI is focusing on preppers.
150 Officials Including FBI Raid Nonviolent Prepper and Confiscate Firearms
Whether it be in preparation for defense against a totalitarian government takeover, or for a natural disaster, people are becoming more aware of the
importance of getting back in touch with those survival skills and being on top of any possible catastrophe. Especially after devastating storms like
Katrina and Sandy, not being prepared could result in big time losses.
