I love old games, but a camp dedication to this pile of crap?!?!?

What is this world coming too?

To this day I can't figure out what the hell was wrong with that nice middle-aged couple I used to talk to every day while they were out walking. They swore, SWORE, Clinton was going to use Y2K as an excuse to lock the christians all up in fema camps.

I'm still waiting, Bill. I'm still waiting....

I like how it's called camp.  Like there will be hiking, arts and crafts, campfire songs, fishing and archery.
I also like how it's called concentration.  If you think about it long enough, your work will set you free.

Some say he was born to a family in Washington and raised by a mother who committed suicide and he later struggled with drug and alcohol addiction which may have left lasting damage on his psyche, still others say he was sent from the bowels of the underdeep to feast on the sanity of his followers to see them driven to the frothy edge in preperation for the coming of his masters.

Why is it that the right wing in the US clings, fetishistically, to these theories that somehow overnight the US will turn into some post-apocalyptic nightmare with Islamic UN Fascist troops going door-to-door arresting Christians and seizing guns and sending everyone who isn't a Gay-Atheist-Muslim to FEMA camps while the US turns into just another part of a united world government under one global currency where guns are abolished and the ever-present face of Obama reminds us that Big Brother is watching. . .so Buy Gold?

I'm going to die of old age waiting for those promised goddamn FEMA concentration camps.
 
2014-06-24 07:39:07 PM  
to be honest, i've been having such a hard time focusing lately, what with all the B.S. coming from the political Right, the economy, the turmoil in the middle east, i could use a bit of a stay at a concentration camp.
 
2014-06-24 07:39:40 PM  
Don't you love how members of a white majority fears being put in a concentration camp?
 
2014-06-24 07:42:41 PM  
Is it possible to godwin a concentration camp story?  Because it seems as though totalitarian states (Nazis, soviets, north Koreans) are the most alarmist when it comes to warning their subjects against evil outsiders coming in, rounding up, persecuting, and exterminating them.

Because they need enemies ,

How can I show you how strong I am if I have no enemies.

how can I crush my enemies, drive them before me, and hear the lamentation of their women. If I am driving a minivan

I was really afraid of the FEMA camps for a while, but they've been handling situations pretty well recently.  I think so long as current leadership remains in place with an expanded budget I feel like they'll handle the forced re-locations pretty well.  The only issues I really see coming up, due to track records, are the websites they'll force us to register on.  I don't honestly know if they'll be ready or if the servers will be sufficiently capable of handling the initial loads and stress of handling that many prisoners.

I'd have thought that if Obama was going to send half the country off to concentration camps, he'd at least have made a start at it by now.

But I forgot--he's not only a ruthless, dangerous tyrant, he's also completely ineffectual.  Right?

FTFA: "5. Ron Paul Thinks the Whole U.S. Could Become an Internment Camp "

What is the difference between an internment camp and the USA where 99.9% have never been outside of the USA?

Maybe the US is already a de facto internment camp.

One trend I've noticed is that some conservatives feel that the real plan of liberals is power and control.  I think that's what they assume libs want because they want that.

fusillade762: We are looking at a major assault on the right to keep and bear arms, it is reminiscent of Nazi Germany

Ah, this horseshiat again.

"The 1938 revisions completely deregulated the acquisition and transfer of rifles and shotguns, as well as ammunition," Harcourt wrote. Meanwhile, many more categories of people, including Nazi party members, were exempted from gun ownership regulations altogether, while the legal age of purchase was lowered from 20 to 18, and permit lengths were extended from one year to three years.

That poster is hurting my brain. Is it implying liberals are Nazis? Or that liberals should be emulating Nazis? Or that liberals are stupid for NOT emulating Nazis? Or... wait... what?

"We would love to round up all kinds of groups.  We talked about rounding up gays into concentration camps to keep them from spreading AIDs.  So, we are clear that rounding up enemies and shoving them into camps is a good thing.  Obviously, therefore, our enemies--who are evil people, as opposed to Real Murcans--must be planning to do this."
