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.
