I was talking to my fellow coworkers about the report yesterday out of Russia about Obama stacking 1 million plus troops in the US to quell a possible civil war due to the economy tanking next year, and my coworker immediately states the following:



"The only reason why America would have a civil war is because Fox news is full of idiots - because they aren't fair and balanced like they say. Everything they report is pro-republican."




  I was speechless.
So top that Arfcom.

Ah mother Russia should be proud..

I really really don't understand people.  I bet they don't even read the news from Fox.  They watch MSNBC, hear about Fox, and form an opinion.

I was fighting it...now I'm giving up. Partially. My 40 acres will be defended, but nothing else.

Co-worker (white chick) at our Christmas party last weeK:

"Obama is doing such a wonderful job.  I really think he deserves a second term".

My wifey-poo (health care worker) went ballistic.  Needless to say, it was a short party.

And somewhere, on another board, there's a thread reading "My wingnut co-worker was telling me  yesterday how Obama is building up 1 million troops in the U.S. to quell a civil war - can you believe that whackjob?"

Does the US even HAVE a million spare troops it could deploy in the US?  I'm talking actual trigger pullers.  Not cooks and lawyers.

I think you topped it when you said Obama and Russia were "stacking" 1 million troops in the US to stop a civil war.


Literate much? It was a Russian article from a Russian news source, posted here on Arfcom multiple times yesterday. I was speaking to them in context of the article, concerning how Russia would know about economic failure and civil war.

I had a former co worker ( former because I am now unemployed) tell me he could not wait for health care to get passed because it was going to be free for every American.

soooo......your just gonna leave your mule unprotected?



––––––––––––––

in all seriousness your co-worker is an idiot but that report about obama and a million troops is bogus as well

coworker probably sent flag@whitehouse.gov an email about a domestic terrorist who believes in the constutition

Of course you're quoting a Russian source about foreign troops being used in America……..

This "report" has been around for months; I haven't seen much troop movement - have you?

I watch both and then form my own opinion.  Joe Scarborough has been bashing Obama for a few weeks now.  My favorite was that Obama doesn't care if the health care bill works he just wants to say he passed it, get re-elected and let the next pres. deal with it in 2016.



Can't bring myself to watch CNN though.

You people in urban areas are surrounded by HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS (if not MILLIONS of people just like this).





It was the cold, sobering reality of that thought which caused me to bug out.  Obama was a virtual unknown then and his bullshit years away.  I was afraid of being in earthquake and fire country surrounded by functionally illiterate masses.





Plan, prep, do everything right and end up dying because of some mouth-breathing American Idol fan (or a few hundred of his buddies) turn into mindless sheep... well.. MORE mindless than usual when TSHTF.





Besides, given the population density and terrain here, I can defend myself with a LOT less ammo than I could in San Diego.

No.

As of February 28, 2009 1,454,515 people are on active duty[12] in the military with an additional 848,000 people in the seven reserve components.

So maybe 10-15% are actually combat arms-infantry, etc.?
