"There are some terrible people in this world."

And many of them work on Wall Street.

Gave me the malaise.

Yes, some blow-dried Wall Street douche is who I'd turn to for advice on surviving a Road Warrior-style global apocalypse.

But will it help me in the struggle against  Marduk, Ruler of the NWO, New Caesar for the Ages and his alien/human hybrids?

Bwuhahah!  A firm of 9 people with less than $250 million under management.  This guy is a joke.

There are some terrible people in this world. And you are safer when your trusted neighbors have firearms."

I don't have to buy guns; I just have to convince my neighbors to buy them? Sweet!

/own a gun, but I doubt a Ruger 10/22 with a lock and the ammo and magazines in a separate location is going to help me a whole lot when Obama or some tea-bagger kicks down my door.

Maybe for your purse granny.

I personally don't feel safe unless I'm packing one of these:

I hope he tips his security staff well for Christmas. Else the electronic gates surrounding his estate just might suffer an unfortunate outage.

I'm more concerned about the false economic recovery coupled with the deceiving unemployment figures and the long term unemployed not being able to find a job. I keep reading this 7% unemployment rate we've had over this stretch hasn't lasted so long since the Great Depression.

Only a paranoid idiot would pack a "bug-out bag" in anticipation of some sort of widespread upheaval. I don't even know where I would put it. My bunker is already full of food, water and ammo.

This is stupid.  Everyone knows the right play is to stock up on as much firepower as possible and take others food.

you should see some of the stuff my brother in law posts on my wifes facebook feed. I understand he is in rural southern IL but the guy and the whole family from that area eat up this derp news brigade like it is true and established fact. I do have to hand it to the one lone liberal progressive friend of theirs who comes in and tries to drop some kind of knowledge and try to get them to understand. So far the one brother in law went around bought up almost 800 incandescent light bulbs because he didn't want to follow the new government rules or what other countries are doing to try and reduce energy consumption. The derp brigade has done a big con job on way to many people and it's hurting us overall as a country.

He doesn't want to reduce his electric bill? Is he stupid? I mean, I understand the whole "fark the environment and let my grandkids live in polluted filth because I'm a rebel!!!" mentality, but not wanting to save money? WTF?

I had to click the link; this should be fun.


So the link searches for the keyword survival; on page 2 this book shows up and it's only 99 cents.  I suppose in an emergency it could provide kindling to start a fire or a good laugh when morale gets low.

If you met the guy you would understand just how insano he is. The sad part is that he is a pharmacist though. He has been fired from all the big  chain places in the area because of his shady attitude and poor performance so now he has to drive 40-50 miles a day to some mom and pop places that is barely staying open. Funny how when he ditched his truck for the long drive to buy an older VW bug he was all about conservation and saving money yet now when a law that George Bush pushed into office, whom he thinks Obama, the "black satan"(his words not mine), is also shoving down his throat he goes out and does some crazy shiat and buys all the light bulbs. I tried explaining how his math is wrong and that LED light bulbs actually will put money into his pocket but he shoots me down and goes into some right wing rant and my mind shuts down and I end up on the floor in convulsions from the stupidity.

"Firearms are the last item on the list, but they are on the list. There are some terrible people in this world. And you are safer when your trusted neighbors have firearms."

Because a group whose lives are dedicated to taking as much as they can from other people aren't going to have to worry about their "trusted" neighbors turning their backs on them as soon as things get tough.

Also, I totally trust these people who, most likely, live in New York, New Jersey, or Connecticut with firearms. Yeah, small unit tactics are easy to learn. You don't need any practice. You can pick it up, just like in the movies. After all, he runs a $250 million fund. How hard can it be to suppress and flank under fire, or not stumble through the door like the three stooges during a MOUT scenario. Those idiots in the Army can do it and they didn't even go to Yale!

Any books on how to keep my wife in the kitchen making me sandwiches? Cause I could use a good manual on how to get my wife to be subservient to my will.

So... A site whose revenews are based on keeping its readers in a constant froth of fear and anger, and then selling them "solutions", says a Wall Street type is selling a dubious, over-priced product to those who don't really have the money to buy it, and who will never use it. Sounds totally believable, actually.

Right wing media made a huge deal about how inferior CFL bulbs are to incandescent bulbs. Among their criticism:

1) There is a delay in how quickly they turn on and off and might have a flickering effect when first turned on or remain slightly aglow when turned off. Yes, it's a fraction of a second, but it's a delay! These "advanced" bulbs are slower than the ones being replaced!
2) The standard color of light from early CFLs were cooler than the shades we're used to from incandescents. Sure you can buy them in more familiar tones now, but their natural color is different from the natural color of the old bulbs, and since we're accustomed to the warmer tones they must be better.
3) CFLs contain trace amounts of mercury. Does that mean that if you break a bulb you're endangering your family's life due to them being poisoned? Well no; you would need a more concentrated dose over a significant period to be dangerous, but just asking the question is scary enough to make CFLs a no-go.
4) CFLs do not give off much heat at all. You can't warm up by just sitting close to a group of exposed bulbs if you want to warm up like you can with incandescents. That's right: Fox News et al were listing heat loss as a benefit of incandescents over CFLs. That's how irrational this all is.

I assume this question is rhetorical.

Oh, and about the heat loss issue, they also made sure to make the wonderful appeal "Obama is trying to ban Easy Bake Ovens with his new law" (which Hasbro has already converted to using an actual heating element instead of a lightbulb and the law was signed into effect by Bush.)

Have fun. It even has a photo of some mother and young children in stress. Those heartstring-pulling images that tug at every moran's reptilian brain.

And the "Obama phone" law was passed by Reagan, but that never stopped the Teanderthals from screaming about it.

Also, is "imment" a word?

i40.tinypic.com Yes, I'd say it's a full-scale panic; are you having a run on the banks there, yet? Well it's rather brutal here; we're advising our clients to put everything they've got in canned food and shotguns...
