that was the largest nonsensical pile of BS since obama's last state of the union address.

in the US shtf isnt going to be about college kids getting upset.

its going to be all the work-nots when the politicians cant borrow anymore. that article with socialists blaming corporate america because the socialists tax the workers to death to give money to the worknots is ridiculous at best

What exactly do you think the danger in the SHTF is? It's certainly not the downfall of our society. It's what others will do when that happens. And what do you think the most dangerous demographic would be?

I don't know about what firearms the have nots have stockpiled but I do know the youth (college age) kids don't have a substantial stockpile. If running around in the streets burning businesses is what you are worried about, don't. It is meaningless. When they start kicking in doors and perpetrating home invasion robberies to gain the weapons and food they need, this is the zombie attack I am preparing for.

We're talking about a very small minority here and they are not well trained, educated, nor are they prepared for the kind of conflict I will bring with me.

The youth definitely aren't a minority. And the mobs that you see in London and the like are probably a little more than one person could easily handle.

Ploof.....You're talking about a few hundred in London who believe the police won't do anything to injure them. They aren't having to advance over their friends dead bodies or duck bullets....It's a freaking street party.

Come SHTF, there will be no police and after the supermarkets and department, liquor and sporting goods stores have been looted, they will turn to the neighborhoods...I'll be waiting for them.

I read it, they haven't a clue! "As long as Mom and Dad or the Government provide a roof and food" should have been the last line in that piece.

When someone is starving, if they have the energy left, they will kill to eat part of a rat. Left wing guesswork and philosophy doesn't mean very much to me.

q. How many liberal arts majors does it take to change a tire?

a. Two. One to stay with the car, one to go call Daddy.


What you are seeing in Europe is typical mob mentality. It takes on a life of its own, when it believes that it will overwhelm whatever is sent to resist it, eiher by greater force or speed of action. However, please note that, like mold or mildew, when the mob attempts to grow outside of urban areas, it appears that the fresh air and sunshine of rural areas is inimical to growth.

Mobs have been described as the only organism with mutiple hands and feet, but no brain. But have been thru urban areas destroyed in riots- zones of total devastation, punctuated by undamaged property- usually owned by a Korean merchant with a shotgun. Maybe the mob is not completely brainless.
