BE FOREWARNRD.....Just stay vigil today...

Recommended Posts

I plan on keeping an eye on whats happening as the result of the election. A LEO friend of mine has told me that every municipality in the state has a contingency plan for the possibility of civil unrest due to this election. Not to be caught off guard please make sure you are watching for anything that may happen. I hope we can all breath a sigh of relief when this is all said an done.

Godspeed my friends.

actually its tomorrow you need to watch out for and yes i have been hearing through the grapevine about all the "urbanites" rioting if obama loses so tomorrow stay frosty and if you work in an urban area like i do over in the Charlotte NC then have a plan to get home then have another plan to get home when that one fails. god i hope obama loses just to see if they attempt to make good on their threats. but im kooky like that ;)

It's so weird when you look for information on this. There's a ton of commentary from conservative sites about threats of riots if Obama loses, but virtual silence on the threats that have been made about assassinating him if he wins... and pretty close to nothing said about any of this in mainstream media. And local LEOs in large cities, including D.C., say they are doubtful that rioting will occur. At the same time, the Secret Service and DHS are actively investigating a lot of people who have tweeted/posted comments with threats of violence.

 

So it's this mix of focusing on what furthers your agenda and ignoring what doesn't by the media, and then simultaneously dismissing it and taking it seriously by the powers that be.

it goes back to hoping for the best but preparing for the worst. and honestly recent history has shown that a certain demographic rioting if obama loses has more truth in it then the fringe neo nazis threatening assassination if obama wins

I've seen the threats both directions. It's definitely a trying time. I've also gotten reports from LEOs that I know that say they are on alert and even reserve officers being called in tonight for the "what ifs". I hate the thought that our election has been degraded down to that of a sporting event with riots whether your team wins or loses.

it shows just how divisive we have gotten as a country. the worst part is the politicians on both sides are hoping something bad happens to further their agendas

 

I agree wardog. I honestly think it's the SAME agenda, they just use different rhetoric to make us think they are different. Anymore, it's about the same as the WWE and the "good guys and bad guys" in that entertainment industry.... these just have our lives in their hands and not having to worry about ratings.

You're not wrong. I think I may start to do drugs so that this stuff won't bother me as much. I'm pretty sure some of my less trustworthy cousins have connections... <sigh>

You know, we've had a lot of presidential elections in this country, even some where the party on top changed. Imagine that! What makes this so different that some are expecting rioting in the streets?

Nana, a bunch of malcontents (idiots looking for an excuse) have been making threats via twitter and all the other venues. Between the neo socialists threatening to assassinate obama if he wins to the dregs threatening to riot if he loses.

I wouldn't say 'expecting' riots... just ready for...riots. WHy would people riot? How often do we see riots throughout the world protesting the outcome of an election? HOw about Iran '09? But this is the US right so nothing like that will happen here. 'WHAT IF'... all those masses that got bused in to the Polls to vote in 2008 dont like the outcome this year? i dont know about your area, but there arent any BUSES taking loads of Obama supporters to the poll this year.

O/C, yours is the first time I have heard of someone wanting to assassinate the president. I don’t like the guy because of his past and leadership but that is NOT how America works. I pray that it was only some drunk, stupid morons taking advantage of their Internet bravado. That kind of BS had no place in the republic. I am glad that the media isn’t giving the morons more press than they deserve.

 

Reg, I heard some threats towards Mitt but I figured they were drunken morons trying to look big for their friends.

I completely agree. We sometimes seem to forget, but we are ALL Americans and ALL in this together. And even if we despise the person who is President, if we feel our country has any value, we need to remember to still have some respect for the OFFICE of the President.

 

My guess is that it's largely a bunch of blowhards on both sides who are saying stupid things because, well, there are lots of stupid people out there. And my HOPE is that this is the case. But vigilance and a certain amount of caution certainly makes more sense than just assuming everything is peachy keen and being dangerously, unpleasantly surprised.

I figure it was mostly just idiots looking to gather support to loot some other places than just where the storm hit. I figure they would go for the riot and looting regardless of the outcome.... they probably need a new big screen and ps3/xbox. I'll remain vigilant, but I am in a fairly safe area as far as civil unrest.

What we have is a culture that believes that the American dream is to taken care of by the government and to be free to do as they please. Do not get me wrong, i am not suggesting that this is a racial thing. This culture crosses many socio-economic lines. There appears to me that the values of self reliance, pride in individual achievement and being a contributing member of society are regulated to the days gone by. I grew up when folks asked what they could do for their country and not what your country can do for you. I took the time to study things that i consider basic (history, economics, math, the arts). Today's society seems hell bent on traveling the road to ruin for this country. The very fabric of this country is being torn apart.

And what do i have to look forward to with this administration in the next 4 years?

  • An America where my kids will never be able to do as well as i have.
  • Jobless rates to increase.
  • Those seeking employment to fall out of the job market
  • more on food stamp programs
  • more obama phones
  • limiting of my health care options
  • The military being kneecapped at every step
  • America's enemies being emboldened my our weakness
  • My rights being stripped away by foreign and domestic sources
  • A spineless leader that allows our people to be killed abroad.
  • a weaken stock market.
  • job makers that contract in order to protect their investments.
  • a standard of living that falls from the best in the world to European standards or even third world.
  • A worsening economy.
  • Hard work goes against you.
  • Zero work ethics.

Maybe i am just an old guy with outdated values but i believe this country is broke and see no way of repairing it. Thus i prep for the storm.
