What's Happening On October 1 In The Dc Area? Fema Preparing For Disaster?

Recommended Posts

Pick6   

My father is a retired USAF Colonel and now works pretty high up at FEMA. 100% there is no way anything is happening on October 1st.

 

If there was any threat my Dad would tell me to get out of town. I mean I am his favorite son.

Brandon Meriweather plays an entire game, intact.

 

Mmm... I could foresee that sparking a minor gathering.

3)  Viruses don't respond to antibiotics.

 

This is dumb.

That was my favorite part. I read the article and thought to myself "we're really screwed if the CDC and WHO think that antibiotics cure viruses."

The part about not allowing any military leave for 2-3 months clearly shows how much BS this is.  That would be front page news on every media outlet.

Girlfriend posted this on my Facebook page a few days ago.  I had to give a multiple-paragraph explanation about federal grants, federal grant budgetary deliverable requirements and federal fiscal year budgets in general.  Unfortunate how so many people can be duped into believing crappola like this...

See! The Navy wouldn't be flying a blimp around DC for NOTHING!

Conspiracy theories like this remind me about a Neil DeGrasse Tyson talk about UFO's and argument from ignorance. Paraphrasing but something like, "I can't explain it so it must be the worst possible thing I can think of."

Remember... the gubmint only allows the media to report what they want them to. Lies... All Lies.

Has the zombie apocalypse started yet out there?

Turn on CSPAN. Got several hundred (brain)dead men walking. And talking. And debating. And representing the country. Or something of the sort.

I'm watching Rev. Al.  I know it's difficult, but at least he's passionate about politics and leaves the "faith" part separate, as it should be.

 

**OK, I don't always stick w/Chris, but tonight is a little different, sadly.

October 1 eh? That sounds really sinister. it couldn't be that the Federal government routinely has a bunch of contracts which have delivery clauses by the end of their Fiscal Year?

 

In other news, flowers are cheaper on February 15 than in the week before and many retailers have sales after December 25. There's evidence of conspiracy and collusion everywhere.

 

Exactly. I think some people must assume the fiscal year starts on Jan. 1st or something. They're holding a large and decently funded training exercise during a time frame where all government agencies everywhere are spending the rest of what they were given. The horror!

It's been said about 10 times in this thread but I'll tack on:  This looks like typical end-of-fiscal-year spending that goes on in every major corporation and our federal government.  If agencies don't spend the money this year, they dont get it next year.

I LOL'ed at this... from the article in the OP:

 

"The retired Senator’s national preparedness research was sparked by a comment Donald Trump made during a recent appearance on Fox News' “On the Record with Greta Van Susteren.”

It's kinda like corporate restaurants in that regard:  they threaten your job as a manager if you blow your payroll budget.  But you've almost gotta do it by just a few hours, and be able to show that you've improved something to justify it, otherwise your payroll will be cut the next MONTH...by people who have never worked in a restaurant.

The similarity with Congress is stunning, huh?

I got it......

 

http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/wonkblog/wp/2013/10/01/the-nine-most-painful-consequences-of-a-government-shutdown/

 

3) The CDC will halt its flu program just as flu season gets underway.

(Rogelio V. Solis, File/Associated Press)

 

Every fall, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention monitors the spread of flu and figures out how best to direct vaccine programs around the country. During the shutdown, however, the agency will be "unable to support the annual seasonal influenza program," according to a memo from the Department of Health and Human Services.

 

 

And it's not just the flu. The CDC also has to stop providing "support to state and local partners for infectious disease surveillance." And the agency will have a "significantly reduced capacity to respond to outbreak investigations, processing of laboratory samples, and maintaining the agency’s 24/7 emergency operations center."

(The CDC will, however, continue its overseas malaria and AIDS programs, as those are funded independently.)

 

4) Some food-safety operations would cease.

 

Spotlight_Egg_Business_0144f.jpg

Ken Trevarthan/AP - Water can cause harm by entering the egg through its porous shell, increasing the risk of contamination.

 

During the shutdown, the Food and Drug Administration will have to cease most of its food-safety operations. That includes "routine establishment inspections, some compliance and enforcement activities, monitoring of imports, notification programs (e.g., food contact substances, infant formula), and the majority of the laboratory research necessary to inform public health decision-making."

This past December, the FDA shut down a nut processor in New Mexico after records showed that the facility was shipping products infected with salmonella. That sort of monitoring and enforcement could become much harder.

Now, that doesn't mean all food-safety oversight stops. The U.S. Department of Agriculture will still maintain thousands of inspectors to check out meat and poultry facilities, and the Food Safety and Inspection Service is still allowed to recall workers in the event of an emergency. So there's still a fair bit of oversight capacity in place. But many routine FDA activities on this front will come to a halt.

So, here it is: 

 

(1) No tracking of the flu.

 

(2) The most deadly strain of the flu comes from the avian sources.

 

(3) The strain has mutated, but no way to track it now. 

 

(4) It's in the eggs (see above pics), particularly the brown ones. 

 

(5) Hippies eat brown eggs because they are "farm fresh." 

 

(6) Hippies have no health care because they are poor and democrats. 

 

(7) Health care exchanges don't work. 

 

(8) Hippies get infected with Avian strain.  Infect other democrats with whom they share common ideologies. 

 

(9) Those democrats infect Joe Lieberman, who is a centrist and know for reaching across the aisle.  Bad idea this time.

 

(10) Lieberman reaches across the aisle to McCain.  He's infected, because vets benefits are suspended he cannot get proper care. 

 

(11) Flu quickly spreads to Sarah Palin, because she and McCain still talk about what a ****ty VP candidate she was.

 

(12) Sarah Palin infects Rand Paul, who then infects the progressives (who don't support the feds anyway, so who cares because they prepped for this one. Right???? Please tell me I'm right???).

 

(13) Palin also infects Anne Coulter. Surprisingly, she is immune because she is already dead.  Plus, no one cares, or will any Dr.'s office treat her.

 

(14) Coulter is a carrier, infects the pages of her most recent "novel," which is read by KKK.. They go down within a week, but not without blaming the jews and black for the spread first.

 

(15) The blacks blame George Zimmerman, and by extension the whites, because he is an Hispanic-white. He is infected by Jessie Jackson, who had been sleeping on Zimmerman's front lawn.

 

(16) Zimmerman believes it is time to arm himself, takes stand your ground way too far this time and heads to DC area.  Mows down congress with his (now banned) 17 illegal handguns. They were illegal but he still found a way to get them. 

 

(17) FEMA essential personnel use body bags on congress.
