“See Something, SAY Something!”

Remember the phrase above, with regard to what appeared to be terrorist activity?

A number of folks have been caught – or at least their damage minimized – by taking such an action.

I, personally, found a credit card account (obviously being used to launder money) in the name of a now-infamous convicted terror suspect – when I worked @ TMCCC.  (Providing more identifiers may be a violation of government secrecy laws!)

And, of course, the whole ‘guy rats out the intelligence community for numerous privacy violations against legitimate citizens’ thing!

We should all be proud of ourselves.

But, sometimes, finking goes too far!

Welcome to the New World Order.

New York DHS will pay you $500 to rat out ‘prepper’ neighbors buying legal goods

So…what is the difference between being vigilant with regard to ‘suspicious’ behavior, and being nosy with regard to those folks who simply want to prepare for a downfall in civilization?  A zombie apocalypse?  An earthquake or hurricane – which the same government has been advising us to prep for such events for years?

Inquiring minds want to know.   NO, I really don’t care.  I’m tired of the government sticking it’s collective nose into MY business.

Emphasis on the word collective.

  2. Yep.
    Buy water, food and emergency supplies so you can survive a few days and be labeled a nut case by the very people who say you should buy water, food and emergency supplies so you can survive a few days.

    Like being prepared equals terrorist. Is it just because not crying for the govt teat is un-American?

  3. KM is correct. They fear anyone who isn’t dependent upon them. “Hoarding is baaaad, m’kay?”

  4. OK, here’s a conspiracy theory for you….
    People who are preppers or ‘hoarders’ or whatever the buzz phrase will be, are now on a list.
    That list is called the ‘People to visit at dead of night when it all goes south to steal their shit’ list.
    Think the government wouldn’t rat you out to all the low life scum whose EBT cards just stopped working?
