  • Riots,what riots?

    I'm concerned that there will be riots following this election cycle no matter who wins or looses.
    Having witnessed the Watts riots, seen the TV coverage of the riots in other cities, the police shoot-outs with the Black Panthers and the SLA when these groups actions were fragmented and disorganized I am concerned what may happen this time when there are national orgs. in place as well as foreign terrorist cells who would incite mass riots and attacks on our country.
    Locally there is no mention of even the possibility of riots.
    What is the situation where you live and have you made any preps?

    Living in Dallas/Fort Worth metroplex I can ASSURE you it is on my mind. Luckily our home is high on a hill on the far west side of town (suburbs.) Anything that happens will be visible for hours on end before it reaches our side of town.

    In this area the prevailing wind is southerly and between me and downtown there is a huge Joint Reserve base and a large blue collar (defense and avionics) neighborhood that wouldn't put up with much in the way of riots.

    Even then I am prepared to bug out by car. Preps are to long to list but I have a Mad Minute and a Golden Hour evacuation plan with my family. Likewise I have six mutual protection agreements in four cardinal directions (two out of state) for relocating to friends and family. Certainly traveling East (Dallas) would be a disaster but my best bet is the family ranch that is to far away but could be reached by bypassing the metroplex South for an hour or so then cutting over.

    Communications bag (radios, laptop, power and chargers), valuables Pelican box, secondary weapons, prescription medicines (outside the 3-day supply each BOV and BOB has) and fill the collapsible water containers are all that would be between us and the road. I would bring the crated camping and NATO fuel containers but I don't need them. The BOV and BOBs contain everything we need. If we had the time I would bring the 30 day supplies and the medium ice chest with comfort food/drink. Everything else (long term food, four season clothing, defense and gear) is pre-positioned if we can just reach the ranch. I wish I could afford to maintain a storage unit half way to the ranch but we cannot have everything.

    Texas has a low tolerance for such antics as riots. That doesn't mean I want my family in the way of one though.

    PS: If any of my fellow Texas Xcolony members would like to exchange contact information for evacuation agreements let me know via forum mail.

        Also, to a lot of lefty's chigrin, race relations are better in Texas then in any state I have ever been. Foks here just tend to get along, especially rural folks.

        I have been to places where they claim to be so multicultural, and ooze tolerance, but it is not safe on the streets. Denver is a prime example, Baltimore and DC, and Chicago is the worst place I have been in regards to race relations. But they talk a bunch of crap about their multi-cultural love everyone society.

        You need to leave DFW, let me know. Odessa is nice this time of year.

          Extra preparedness levels are being taken here among LE. Feeling is similar to an impending hurricane. We will be shopped up before the election to avoid any extra trips into town. Covering at least 2 weeks is the goal.
          I am ready in case.

            I believe that if Big O wins riots will be brief and scattered, but what if we get a repeat of "the hanging chad" election that drags on for months? I believe things can really get rough in that situation. Houston now has a population that was transplanted from New Orleans with a mixed record for civil mindedness or a live and let live mentality. I can see Big O giving a speech to his followers saying something to the effect: "Now is not the time to riot." something Mandela once said. I really don't want to see the USA follow SA.

              I'm a big movie buff and found it on a movie sight discussing the movie. Can't recall where though but I saved it because it is a good WTSHTF image.

              It is a great book, though for the life of me I can't see how it will make a popular movie. I also liked Blindness but when I saw it in the theatre there were four people total, lol.

              There are good actors though so it will be worth watching.

                      Fellow Forum Members,

                      In the past 2 days following the coming of the Obamanation, the only fires I saw were the bright fire-like orange and red shades of Autumn as I viewed the trees going up 321 North. Truly beautiful and a must for anyone with a camera!

                      :cool:

                      I park in a distant, obscure parking lot away from the store where I work, but I did this even before the Election because I've had my windshield smashed and my tires punctured twice and the management was and is unwilling to do anything about the thugs that roam the area, even though the management will spend thousands of Dollars in charitable donations to worthless government schools and to shakedown artists like the modern-day NAACP.

                      Fortunately, parking outside of the store where I work gives me the opportunity to fit a total of 20 extra minutes of walking into my daily schedule, so it is both a security measure and a means of providing exercise, which can only do any Survivalist good.

                      So far, no riots and no scuffles or much ill-will has manifested itself in my area, although Gastonia, NC is no stranger to labor riots and international incidents.

                      (Parenthetically, Gastonia, NC was the site for the Communist-instigated Loray Mill Strike in 1929 and a successful attempt to hijack an airplane to Cuba in 1970. Perhaps for these symbolic reasons and for its strategic and once-great textile mills, Gastonia, NC was actually in the nuclear sights of the former Soviet Union.

                      As for riots in my area post-Obama, I will just have to wait and see and be ready to bug-out when the time arises. I have all the bug-out gear I can possibly use for now in my truck and have routes planned, but I am still aiming for a rural homestead sometime in the near future.

                        As you can probably surmise from the first line of my last post, I am not letting Obama or any of the others in the cavalcade of powermongers and hypocrites from the last Election destroy my capacity to find enjoyment in life. If we all take that approach to life, the Obamanation has sand in its gears already.

                        :D
