  1. I MUST BE AN ISOLATIONIST BUT IT APPEARS THAT CURRENT DAY AMERICA IS HEADING IN THIS DIRECTION.. I REMEMBER THE REAL COLD WAR IN 1960 WHEN THOSE COMMY BASTARDS TOOK OVER CUBA… OR WAS IT 59? HELP ME OUT HERE… THE ORIGINAL PREPPING WAS DONE THEN WITH BACK YARD BOMB SHELTERS… THESE CRAPBALLS ARE NOT SANE… THEY CAN FLIP AT ANY SECOND… WHICH IS WHY I WILL ALWAYS LIVE IN THE STICKS TO BEGIN WITH… ONCE YOU ENVELOP A LIFE OF FREEDOM THERE IS NO GOING BACK… “IT TAKES A SNIPER” TO RAISE A KID…. NOT A FREAKING VILLAGE….
