Heinlein said u can't really own more

than what you can carry at a dead run. All else is subject to being taken from you. If you'd like that amount of stuff to be really capable of aiding you after the disaster, it better be the right stuff, you'd better know a lot, and you'd better be FIT enough to carry enough of it to do you some good. For most gun guys on forums, that's 10 lbs. :-) Tops. and guys like garand and terry would need an 18 wheeler.

He also said that (paraphrasing) one of the greatest joys of life comes from being glad for the good fortune of others.

Yet you pretty much never bother to say "well done", "congratulations", or anything similar. It's okay to recognize that not all of the human race are your enemies or persecutors.

plenty here are, or have been or would like to be, including you, spreading that bs about how i surrendered from a halfway house, with a phone call warning me. believe me, if i had any warning of an arrest, I'd be LONG gone. I've jumped bond, and I've escaped from a camp, and i sor sort of like being on the run. It's far easier to do today and I know a lot more about how to do it, too. you just go flat ass ape **** and get the money to get your face changed, that's all. Once they can't find you by your picture, you've got 100x less to worry about.

Phone call from U.S. Marshall ordering John back to his half way house. He went. No Federal record of escape of any kind from custody. He may have jumped bail on State or Local charges, but not Federal. Hence no camp escape.

If the "balloon ever goes up", at least some of us will hopefully prosper in some semblance of comfort. What does "wifey" think about your spider hole idea? Have you even told her?

sure you will, you effing retard. My wife trusts me implicitly with stuff like this. She's been on the forums, we've been to enough gun stores, ranges, etc, for her to know who''s what.

Robert Heinlein, one of my favorite all time Authors, was just that. A Science Fiction writer. Actually quite ill most of his life, he never participated in anything physical after being Medically discharged from the Navy.

So what do you do for your government supplied meds while you are spending your 12 months in a "hidey hole"?

Since you and I were the only ones to have posted in this thread at the time, I have to assume you were talking to me and I just missed it.

What BS have I spread about anything you've done or not done?
