that's scary Surly, but like I said, there are scary people everywhere you go.  Why is Wyoming so bad?  I mean people wise?  Not many people there actually.  And the Chaney's damn sure ain't gonna fuck with ur permaculture haven?  We'll be hiding in plain site.  Foxstead style.

I live in SE Virginia, AKA Pat Robertson country, where "rural idiocy" has morphed into "suburban idiocy driving giant armored vehicles." Ken Cuccinnelli is the putative R nominee for Governor, ferchrissakes. His scales glisten on a night lit by moonlight. You live in Carolina. Similar, perhaps.

For all that, it's not the Stormfront/Christian Identity/Militant Mormon crowd. Armed to the teeth with bad weapons and worse ideas.

My thinking is thus: After TSHTF, after The Usual Suspects are rounded up, and the Big Ass Military has shot its wad, the usual strictures of social order will fail. Large pathes of the FSA become, in effect, Somalia-- government by warlord. Under those circumstances, you will either pay protection, contribute soldiers, or more likely get added to the clan. Perhaps peacefully, perhaps not. Rest assured your women and children will be added to the clan --you are not necessary. And for that matter, neither are the elders...

Am thinking the warlords are more likely to spring up among the armed-to-the-teeth-Obama's-Black-Helicopter crowd than among a group of hardy, peaceful souls practicing permaculture techniques. They will spring up everywher, sure. I'd just like them to be more along the lines of what you might find in a Kunstler novel than , say homegrown Nazis.

What most of us want, more than anything, is to find a place to Be LEFT THE FUCK ALONE. Not possible under the Total Surveillance State; probably not possible under Government by Warlord either.

Just one surly old man's opinion.

Reminds of past discussion had on this forum about what is REALLY underwriting the fiat, and by extension the Happy Motoring lifestyle.

I don't get it?  "Deep down you just know she's liberal?"  Hilliary?  She's democrat, of course she's liberal.  I don't get it.

Really?

Democrat means liberal? Perhaps you've missed the fact that, the "HMO Full employment and Welfare Act" (Obamacare) notwithstanding, BHO has continued the most odious and unconstitutional of W's excesses. Plus cracked down on whistleblowers in a manner unseen in past times. And Hillary's husband, perhaps the most popular democrat extant, was a spectacular class traitor who gave us NAFTA, GATT, and welfare reform, all extreme right wing/globalist desiderata.

So don't tell me dems are liberals. They are, for the most part, craven lickspittle apparatchiks of the global banking order, as eager to fellate the next campaign donor as any republican congressman in an airport bathroom stall.

So the comment is ironic, and reflects the denial and belief system of most Democrats, who continue to believe that their party is "librul," when the opposition makes it so easy to not be batshit crazy. Easy to look reasonable when your opposition wages continuous class war against women, children, teachers, first responders, and anyone who makes a salary.

No TRULY liberal ideas get a hearing in this country anymore. There is an entire wing of political thought that can NEVER get a booking on a talk or interview show in the MSM.
