Double-speak name for "Shelters"? : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread

Since we will only have to plan for 3-5 days of supplies, long enough for Big Brother to take us to "shelters" (prison camps?), in the spirit of 1984-style "Double-speak", we really need a good name for "shelters". I'm terrible with words - perhaps some of you more verbal folks could help.

How about "re-education centers"? That was a favorite of Clinton's admired colleagues.

Does anybody other than Old Git understand what I'm alluding to?

Critt--the logistics of imprisoning millions of people do seem formidable. Remember, though, the German experience in the years 1938-1945. Despite gearing up for war, then fighting a two front war, and finally having their cities bombed to rubble, they devoted considerable time, money, personnel, and trains to maintaining the concentration camp system. Ten million people died in the camps, while outside another ten million died from the war itself. Would our government commit similar resources to quelching a defiant populace? Remember Waco. Remember Ruby Ridge. Our only hope may rest with principled military units that would oppose them. Global governance organizations are not representative democracies--they are oligarchic and totalist. Americans constitute the last great armed populace that would resist the move to global financial totalitarianism. (ClubFed: I love it!)

Hey, I heard about Club Fed,

They say you can drop out of the club at any time, but once you check in, it's hard to check out. When they sign you up, they'll really push the lifetime membership option, so be careful.

Also, I've been told that room service isn't that great. They'll brag about their cuizine, but from what I've heard, you have to show up real early to get a good place in line for the buffet.

I honestly do not understand why on earth the US govt would forcibly evacuate US citizens and put us into concentration camps. We are not "the enemy". If you have credible evidence that this is actually planned, please give it to me. I would be happy to read it. Until then,

I would call the camps "fantacy camps"

Gotta go with Club Fed, too. Great name. I'm reminded of "Hotel California." You can check out, but you can never leave.

Back in 1949 (could've been 1950, could've been 1948) the Hudson Review published a story with an obscure title-- N.R.A.C.P.. I picked up a copy and read the story. Never have forgotten it, but I'm not sorry I read it. It couldn't possibly be published in this country today.

I haven't got the courage to review it here. Brave souls may be able to find it in a library.

"we are not the enemy." Read Andy's thread above about the US government's biological and radiation experiments on us 'allies.' Keep in mind that the good old US of A has the highest number of incarcerated in the world. In 1997 the WSJ reported that prisons were the second biggest US growth industry--and they want to build MORE! Gov. Pataki just announced plans to build two more new state prisons here in NY. But I'll keep saying it as a mantra when I read about gov. abuse of power--"wearenottheenemy wearenottheenemy wearenot..."

I've got to vote for Club Fed as well, although I think the offical name would be somthing like Safety Shelters, Temporary Living Quarters, Emergency Alternative Housing etc..

But, we already have re-education centers, they're called 'Public Schools'. ;-)

Tom Carey: now THAT'S a cryptic post. You don't have the courage to even review it? The mind boggles. Is it along the lines of Sinclair Lewis' "It Can't Happen Here," about a fascist takeover of the U.S., where the heroes (in Vermont!) are rounded up and put in concentration camps? Lewis wrote his book in, I think, 1936. Far cry from 'Babbit' or 'Elmer Gantry.'

-- Spidey (, March 05, 1999.

I am still looking for that evidence that says the govt. is planning to put US citizens in concentration camps.

-- still looking for (still@lookingfor.theevidence), March 05, 1999.

still looking,

You will not find evidence like you seek.

What is rather obvious form the extant documents is that the Goc has plans to "relocate" some of the citizenry to "shelters" for their "safety". And apparently wheither they want to go or no.

It was intended to be cryptic. You're getting warm -- but only that. Hope you can find the piece in the library -- maybe on inter-library loan. In case anyone does read it, I hasten to note that the basic premise of the story is utterly appalling. I thought so then, and I think so now.

BTW, it turns out there's a keystroke combination for [SUBMIT]. Whatever it is, I hit is by accident a few minutes ago. Sorry!
