Out for a bit...

I have an errand to run at Beech Grove Firearms, across the street from the Vast FEMA Extermination Camp (*snicker*). If I don't make it back, send the internet commandos.

"zomg teh barb wire points inwards!!!!1!1!!one!"


(PS: If you really believe that the Amtrak facility in Beech Grove is a "FEMA Extermination Camp", you are obviously barely multicelled and dumber than jello. Grownups are chatting here, so please don't drool in the comments section.)

EDIT: Bonus!

EDIT II: And can anyone guess why barbed wire points inward almost everywhere these days, including the Amtrak facility? Class? That's right. Lawyers. Because when Seth & Jared go to climb the fence so they can spray paint "Jared luvs Tifani 4evar" on the dining car, and the barbed wire is pointing out, if they try to climb over, they fall, break something, and then Mommy and Daddy sue the crap out of Amtrak, the fence maker, and whoever poured the concrete for the sidewalk. Whereas if it points inwards, they usually just give it up for a bad idea and climb back down, or get their Abercrombie & Fitch baggy drawers all snarled up in the barbed wire until the mall ninjas come out in the golf cart to help them down and call the police.

As anyone who's ever driven past a real jail or prison or maximum security site knows, nobody uses three strands of barbed wire if they're serious about keeping people out anyway. They use razor wire a la concertina.

After all, when they wanted to round people up in New Orleans they simply locked everyone in the football stadium.

FEMA Concentration Camp? My Aunt Fanny!

Clearly it's a zombie containment area.

Wow!! That video was fantastic! My brother works at a railcar production facility and I could shoot the same video there. I know he'd certainly like to know when they're getting concrete floors and heated buildings so he doesn't have to freeze his ass off all winter. I especially loved the "excellent watchtower" at the end which closely resembles the typical light towers installed at many large rail facilities...it would be excellent if it weren't really far too tall for the purpose and if you didn't mind being exposed to the elements constantly on a teensy platform completely ill-suited to the task (it would do in a pinch but not for the studiously planned out scheme they're suggesting.)

Geez...the Bloomsburg Fairgrounds fits just about all of their accusations (barbed wire, turnstiles, large heated buildings, large fenced areas, helipad)...they just fixed up the cattle arena last year and I though it was innocent!

I could not find your post on the pirates holding the tanks off the coast of Somalia. So I'm going to post my comment here.

The pirates have lowered the ransom to 8 million. I was doing a little math and that's only $266,000 per T-72 tank. Maybe we could all chip in and buy one from them. ;)

That was just too weird. I'll have to take a closer look next time I drive through B.G! :)

I wonder who they'll be voting for in November?

What does all this 1!1! stuff mean?

That looks like a nice little gun shop. It might be fun to stop and look around sometime when I am going through the area. Is there room to park an 18 wheeler? Maybe along the road that goes by the railyard?

I can think of at least three other rundown industrial facilities that would be better for turning into "Concentration Camps", just in the Indy area. I don't even pick up or deliver around there all that often.

Tam, will you marry me?

Kidding! If we were married, our combined snark would probably violate the Strategic Arms Limitation Treaty....

Sweet. Glad someone debunked this, so I can point back to that link now.
I have SEEN FEMA plans (and maps) on paper before, years ago... I remember my opinion then was akin to them not being able to Emergency Manage themselves (or anyone) out of a wet paper bag; I cannot imagine that with increases in experience, funding and technology that the situation has actually IMPROVED. I PRAY that if someone will be in charge of rounding up and re-edukating us some day, please Dear God, let it be FEMA. Then the USG can figure out how much fun cat-herding is (armed cats, to boot.)

Cool shop. Gave me some ideas for a storefront, someday.

Hah! See, the rail line goes right into the gas chamber! It's a drive-thru death camp. Now, that's even more efficient than using an indoor stadium.

I'm pretty sure I once saw drawings of the camp in one of DaVinci's notebooks that was based upon the prophecies of Nostradamus

NO SMOKING
NO LOADED GUNS

And you went inside anyway????

Hunter said...

Ahem, actually, concertina is barbed wire in connected spirals. Then there is stamped steel concertina, which is sorta like razor wire, then there is GPBTO (General Purpose Barbed Tape Obstacle). GPBTO is truly razor wire. We would not use leather gloves or stapled gauntlets to shake it out because it would cut you through the gloves and you wouldn't even know it. It is the GPBTO that you see on the secret holding facilities of the Imperial Overlords.
Thus endeth the combat engineer fact o'the day.

Tam said...

Farmist,

Like most gun stores, the "No Loaded Guns" sign doesn't refer to CCW weapons.

That's insurance boilerplate in case Cletus brings his deer rifle in to trade and negligently blows a hole in the something or someone because he forgot to clear it.

The bonus link was particularly - em - disturbing.
It's scary that they let these people walk the streets without leashes or muzzles, or even minders.
