are we just pawns in an ugly chess game

Have you ever wondered if we are just pawns in a chess game where nobidy is really going to win? Oddly enough I am really thinking that we are. About months ago In the Wilmington Star news it was reported that our crime rate was at an all time low. Then about four months ago the same news source reported that this city had just purchased a robot with federal funds ( note that this robot is used to aid people that are buried in fallen buildings) that is used mostly in the military. Then as I repoted just a month ago this same city would be hiring more officers to patrol the city to make people feel safer. The newspaper reported this information and even questioned the need for more officer since the crime rate is so low. Then yesterday appearing in the Starnews a building collapsed after officers had to detonate a bomb from two suspicouse packages. Now please keep in mind this is a small city, not even one sky scraper but more of a university town, It is more like a large suberb with alot of shopping. a tourist town in the summer. This is not a town with bombs going off. I am seeing a picture. I am seeing a conditioning of the people. More cops needed, although stats show crime is low. Instill fear and the masses will cry for more officers to protect them. Keep people afraid with not just the normal crrime but get em good and afraid with bombs and they will welcome with open arms more boots on the ground, more cameras to watch them etc. I am glad I am outside a major city. But this artifiial crisis is being played out everywhere across this nation. I would like to share with you another example. In my town (county population is about 6,000 people) we recently had somebody try to kill themsleves. The police arrived on the scene along with EMS with rescue equipment. ( I am not sure what it was but resembles a crane of sorts) It was not even closely needed for such a horrific event but to know this small tiny town had such a piece of equipment was actually alarming. On a personal note I started to awaken from my sheeple slumber almost 2 years ago but was never prepared to see what part we little people may be placed in. I know pawns are the disposable pieces in the game, make yourself a king or queen in the prepper kingdom. know a skill and know it well. Be vigilant. Make your own kingdom and be a watchman over it. Take care all.

I have won many a chess game with the lowly pawn, it is the disposable hero in my book not the wasted piece.

With that being said, i do believe in a tin foil hat kind of way that there is a crisis machine turning somewhere. The thing that worries me is I do not believe this is a chess game of us vs them (and pardon the pun for accuracy) its more like a game of chinese checkers. There are multiple enemies at play, and they all at one point or another help and/or hinder the other entities on the board.

I hope, nah I dream that it will not be long before the federal bubble bursts and States are left to their own devices, and the states with the best markets, laws, lowest liabilities, best markets for growth and prosperity and values/ethics (note i purposely avoided using religion) and that openly supports ALL of its citizens rights and encourages success and severley punishes criminals.

I think I am going to request OK institute a bill not to deport illegal immigrants to Mexico, but to Washington DC or California-there is a better chance of them staying there until they bleed that area dry like locusts and move on. (also of note sicne that may seem non PC> I am pro legal immigration, I am pro dream act to a degree, I am even pro wiping the slate clean and granting money for amnesty to those allready here, but as long as it remains a crime to be here not by birth but by evasion we need to enforce our laws.

and yes the more I open my eyes, the less I want to see-The more I learn, the less I want to know, and the more I suspect, the less I want to fear.
I have two emotions left for our government-Hope and Fear.
I cannot hate them any longer for it takes to much out of me
I cannot love that which does not love me
I cannot praise that which is in a state of utter failure
I can only hope for improvement or dissolution and I constantly fear for myself my family and their future generations. It may always be darkest before the dawn, but i believe the devils will try to steal the sun.

Life has always been a chess game. All any of us can do is develop the best strategy to maximize our defensive and offensive position.

Unfortunately many of our politicians are thinking they are playing chinese checkers and none of them have any clue as to whose move it is

The dirty joke is, you're funding it (additional officers/equipment).

If people would open their eyes, they might be shocked @ what they see. Lots of 'unusual' activity going on w/ LE/DHS around the country.

Never before has there been such an organized internal effort to control the population. The media, the supposed 'parties', the banking industry, etc.. have all demonstrated a unified allegiance.

This time there is something different happening.

I think it's some kind of ugly game,but not sure what the prize is.At this point,I'm not even sure who the major players are.I'm quite sure the winner is not supposed to be the American people.

The game is complicated, but I think at it's core it is about getting the rich richer, and the powerful more power. I believe we are in a slow apocalypse, things will slowly decay around us and maybe somewhere around 50 years from now the loss of freedom we have today will be a drop in the bucket to how bad things will be then.

More like 4-5 years until we have a major economic event IMO. That will lead to accelerated degradation of freedom.
