Ye Shall Hear of Wars and Rumours of Wars

I have been hearing grumblings for sometime now and I am growing concerned. Am I the only one hearing this and seeing this? To begin with there has been an absolute run on guns and ammunition. I have called every gun store within 100 miles. There is absolutely NO 7.62x39 ammunition to be had. For those who are a little less informed on such things, those are the rounds fired from an AK 47 or an SKS. They are probably the most produced rifle rounds on the face of the planet with the exception of the ubiquitous but anemic .22 Long Rifle. Trips to near by stores that carry ammunition reveal them to be bare of anything but the weird stuff and the weak stuff. Gun sales are booming, one of the few segments of the economy flying in the face of the recession. Friends that work for gun shops report sales volumes ranging from 300% to 1000% over March last year. Most have attributed this rush on guns to Obama's abysmal record on gun control. But I'm wondering if there isn't more afoot.

A Russian professor, Igor Panarin has prognosticated the dissolution of the United States by 2010. He foresees the country ending up divided into 6 separate parts.

Then, for the first time in my life I hear commentators on syndicated news channels seriously entertaining the thought of revolution occurring in the near future. (See here, here and then here).

As if that isn't good enough, politicians are getting into the act. Congresswoman Michele Bachman (R) of Minnesota had this to say:
"I want people in Minnesota armed and dangerous on this issue of the energy tax because we need to fight back. Thomas Jefferson told us ‘having a revolution every now and then is a good thing,’ and the people – we the people – are going to have to fight back hard if we’re not going to lose our country. And I think this has the potential of changing the dynamic of freedom forever in the United States."
- AND -

"I’m a foreign correspondent on enemy lines and I try to let everyone back here in Minnesota know exactly the nefarious activities that are taking place in Washington."
Even the libs are saying it (even though their reasons for it are nuts). Representative Jay Inslee of Washington, speaking about the permanent removal of the moratorium on offshore oil drilling, had this to say:
"We are off the Pacific coast, and there would be a civil war. There would be something like a secessionist movement if there was a serious attempt to remove the moratorium."
So in other words, if any attempt was made to "drill baby drill" the libs would get really upset and hold a little "secessionist movement"... No doubt there would be lots of tofu, patchouli, Birkenstocks, Che pictures and kaffiyehs.

Now that's a truly frightening prospect LOL!
