The Democraps are blaming the Republicraps for the demonstrations at the various town hall meetings. What a crock of shit! Blame the resolve of people under the financial gun on politics! The Dems will not believe that their socialist agenda is not popular with the people. I guess the only way out of it is to dismiss all the bastards in the next election, if there is a next election. But here we sit, broke on our asses, and the Dems are wanting to put a big tax bill on us. If these people are that out of touch then they are nuts and uncomprehending. But I think they really do know the score. It's all a big game of politics. Smoke and mirrors. The House just appropriated itself two hundred million dollars for Gulfstream jets to fly them around the country. Remember when they bitched when the auto execs flew into Washington on private planes? Three new Gulfstreams. Pretty high class. They hold 19 people. A little over three million bucks a seat.
The economic blogs are predicting a major catastrophe toward the end of Summer. I am too! And I ain't even an economic blogger. I'm a back-in-the-hills survivalist with a wife and a brother-in-law and two cats. But the heavy hitters in finance and economics are predicting all sorts of hell to come upon us. Not too many reasonable folks are arguing with them. Obama might, but he is a little daffy you know.
Jim Haddix sent me an article on bomb shelters. Here is a snippet.If you actually do want to invite your extended family to stay with you for an extended period of time in your bomb shelter, there are plenty of options. Hardened Structures offers missile silos the government surplused in the 1990s. Meanwhile the CAT25 from Radius Engineering can hold 25 people for up to five months, and the company also offers the single-family Earthcom Dome, which Popular Mechanics calls the Four Seasons of bomb shelters. If a blast-hardened steel shelter is more your style, Utah Shelter Systems offers sizes ranging from 8 by 32 feet to 10 by 50 feet, starting at $40,000. Invite the neighbors, or don't; it's your choice since they're built to your standards.
You may think it's foolish for people to be dropping hundreds of thousands of dollars for something they may never use. But keep in mind this quote from Radius Engineering's Walton McCarthy about his CAT25: "The government is buying up all the shelters. We can't make enough." The government is buying all of them!
