A former Marine Corps Colonel who was stationed in Fallujah and trained Iraqi soldiers warns that the Department of Homeland Security is working with law enforcement to build a “domestic army,” because the federal government is afraid of its own citizens.

In the mid ‘90s the Marine Corps decided Doom II might make for an excellent training supplement. It did so for two reasons—a forward-thinking commandant and a budgetary shortfall.The Marines have always had to make due with little financial support compared to the other military branches.

A Jeffersonian Military Man

I want to talk  about something that’s been bothering me lately. The reader may think that I am trouncing on hallowed ground …. but first hear me out, and then beat me up.

I think the U.S. Government is behind a recent  subterfuge that really irritates me. It has been eagerly picked up by an unthinking public and widely spread. It is the “Thank you for your service to our country” platitude.  As a 25 year veteran, thrice combat tested, now retired, former USMC killing machine, I take exception to this patriotically veiled insincerity and urge thinking people not to use it. I shall try to explain why.

First, the statement implies ‘servitude’ and ‘sacrifice’ as does the name ‘service man’ itself. It reeks of self-abnegation, altruism, and renunciation of ones own interests in favor of those of society, nationalism and the greater good …. (mmmmmm, now it’s starting to make sense).

It connotes selfLESS sacrifice of one’s own life and values for the sake of others. I have found none of this to be true in my case, or in any of my military accomplices. . I’ll try to illustrate.

Gunny G: So, Was It “Lock and Load” OR “Cocked and Locked” ???

A rendition of the emblem on the flag of the U...

Back in’52 when I was a brand new Pfc just outta boot camp and having reported in to Marine Barracks, Camp Joseph H. Pendleton, Oceanside, California–yeh, you read it right, MB,O’Side, No Zip Code, etc.–I overheard some old salts arguing over the question as to which was correct…”cocked and locked” and/or “lock and load”.

One side claimed one, the other side claimed the other. Some said that “Lock and Load” became popular with John (Duke) Wayne‘s portrayal of Sgt Stryker in the 1949 “Sands of iwo Jima.”

Prison Planet.com » Why Are Preppers Hated So Much?

December 11, 2012 2 comments

Have you noticed that it has become trendy to bash preppers? For a long time the prepper movement was ignored, but now it has become so large that it is getting very difficult for the mainstream media to pretend that it is not there.

In fact, it has been estimated that there are now approximately 3 million preppers in the United States alone. So now the mainstream media has decided that mocking the movement is the best strategy, and lots of “critics” and “skeptics” out there have picked up on this trend. Instead of addressing the very real issues that have caused millions of Americans to prepare for the worst, those criticizing the prepper movement attempt to put the focus on individual personalities.

They try to find the strangest nutjobs they possibly can and then hold them up as “typical preppers”. The goal is to portray preppers as tinfoil hat wearing freaks that need to be locked up in the loony bin for their own personal safety and for the good of society. The criticism of preppers has really ramped up in recent months, and it will likely get even worse in 2013. The establishment does not like any movement that is outside of their control, and the prepper movement is definitely not under their control.
