An hour on the road in Texas and no sane talk show to listen to. So I listened for a while to an insane, and therefore somewhat riveting, right -wing one. Two people were talking and claiming that one of them, A (I didn’t know who, though I suspected) had the following interesting features:
b. He has 4 tapes with the truth on them, one of which will bring down the administration.
c. He is only frightened of being unfaithful to his core values and losing his soul.
d. He’s urging us to get prepared for a really hard time, one when you can’t count on institutions that support you now.
Now this was scary. A asked B for an example of a really hard time, and B mentioned the exvacuation of Houston, which sort of was tried when hurricane Rita threatened to come on land at Galveston. About 3 million people tried to get out of Houston, which was pretty catastrophic, given there are pnly two main roads going north, away from the Gulf. The stores were pretty much bare, there was no money in the ATM’s and no gasoline in the city.
So that’s what the meltdown will look like, and we need to get prepared for it. We need to gird our loins or whatever you do when an unspecified meltdown is coming. Certainly, we need to be very wary.
We are talking very serious and prolonged scare tactics.
Then one of the said that, as I suspected, the other is Glen Beck, who has best sellers on Amazon.com. I couldn’t bear any more, but I had heard a commercial for the Survival Seed Bank. In the coming meltdown, these seeds may be worth more than gold. These seeds will provide a lifetime of food for you and your family.
And that’s the truth.
Can’t think why he’s dressed like a Hollywood fascist dictator, but the book is about tactics for winning arguments, so I suppose there’s some connection.
