Prepping for Civil Unrest

Prepping for civil unrest is beginning to take on a new urgency, in my opinion. Over on Blog O'Stuff, I've posted here and here some pictures of the Occupy Oakland and Occupy Philadelphia crowds, respectively. When you have persons like the Mayor of Oakland and the President of the United States openly voicing support for communist revolutionaries within our borders, it isn't a big stretch to see this spreading and becoming more violent.

IMO, ff you live in an urban area you should be prepared with sufficient food and water to last out a week's worth of rioting at a minimum, along with fire extinguishers, first aid supplies, and the means to defend yourself and your home.

Don't get caught with your pants down.

I think they should just call it "occupy everywhere" because that's where we're headed.

You guys just don't get it, do you.
The vast majority of the Occupy groups are just normal people. They can see that the middle class is vanishing and the "1%" is getting more & more wealthy at the expense of all the rest of us. We get told the "rich invest & create jobs" BULL****, they buy up weaker companies (that could survive if left alone) & strip the workers of their hard earned pensions. When, I mean really think about it, when is the last time you heard of some rich S.O.B. starting a new Company with lots of new jobs?? And how often do you hear or this or that firm being taken over or merging & DOWNSIZING their work force?

I've been sitting on Anonymous Coward's comment for a few days while pondering whether to post it. I decided I may as well, for a few reasons.

First, it's a good example of the left's wild-eyed class warfare mentality, which is based ultimately on envy. It's the same utter B.S. that they've been spewing since Karl Marx was writing his blueprint for a failed economic model.

Second, it ties in with a post I've been working on for Blog O'Stuff, "Income Inequality, Job Creation, and OWS."
