Martial Law- Coming to a mall near you : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread

Gary North's Y2K Links and Forums

You don't think that they are building prison camps for martial law? Some are already built. In some cases, a long time ago.

Marshall Field's is a large department store chain located primarily in Chicago and the Midwest. I was having lunch with a friend of mine, who happens to be an ex-marine/actor/singer/dancer/proctologist who just happens to work for the city of Chicago. He provided me with some sobering information about Marshall Fields, as well as other department stores around the country.

Marshall Fields was originally called "Martial Fields" back in the 1940's, when these prison camp/department stores were originall built during World War II. Cities are planning on them using them for Y2K. Parent company Dayton-Hudson confirms this. You've probably been in some of these stores. You're going to be in one again.

Exclusive to WorldNetDaily

Department stores are hardly threatening. Come Y2K, that could all change. WorldNetDaily has learned that many of the department stores in the U.S. actually will serve as prison camps when martial law is declared. "Many of these stores were built to maintain a dual role," said Martial Fields COO and staff sergeant Werner Klemperer, "Some call them prison camps, but we just prefer to say that we are versatile. When Y2K comes, we don't have to convert anything, and will keep clothes on the racks, just like business as usual. Even in times of devastating social unrest, Martial Fields is dedicated to providing maximal value to our customers, even if they are getting gang-raped and trading duct tape for smokes at the cosmetics counter."

Dayton-Hudson parent company CEO and colonel Doug McArthur explained how people will be rounded into the camps. "Our marketing department believes in a gentle, yet straightforward, approach. People love sales. We're going to run both our "Field Days" and our "13-Hour" sales simultaneously." In doing this, the company feels that it can fill the camp to its capacity while providing staggering savings for its customers while turning over stagnant inventory.

Additionally, all 10 Starbucks in the mall will be commandeered by authorities (in order to use their water) and food will be taken from Orange Julius and Chick-Fil-A. When asked to confirm this CFO and General Homer Simpson would only say "Mmmmmm, chicken."

We approached 7-11 as well as other convenience stores, but they declined comment. Kodak, however, did say that they were not ordered to re-open old Fotomats fo Y2K. We will continue to follow this story as we make up more information.

This is not on either Gary North or WorldNetDaily.

So CJS, are you a Fed, or a Socialist (oops, I'm being redundant)...

-- Anonymous99 (, April 23, 1999.

It's called humor, parody at that. It was hardly intended to be disinformation or a lie. Anyone with a quarter-ounce of gray matter in their skull can see that this is absolutely untrue.

Lighten up.

CJS is one of the y2k kiddies - you see they write this sort of thing, post it, and then tell all their friends how they've fooled's the old 'dare you to...' thing that adolescents get into...doesn't matter that no one actually takes them seriously...


-- Arlin H. Adams (, April 23, 1999.

It took a few paragraphs for the humor to become evident, but even in this age of disinformation and spin, this was obviously not serious.

You're dead nuts wrong about my post. It wasn't intended to fool anyone. Read my response to anonymous 99. Re-read the post. It uses names such as Doug(las) McArthur, Homer Simpson, and Werner Klemperer (Colonel Klink on Hogan's Heroes). It's clearly intended to not be serious.

I can't believe I'm explaining this. The response to this is funny, as well as frightening.

-- CJS (, April 23, 1999.

Yea CJS, it's about as funny as most of your other posts here.

"...who happens to be an ex-marine/actor/singer/dancer/proctologist who just happens to work for the city of Chicago...."

My favorite line. If you believed anything beyond that point you're an idiot and/or have no sense of humor.

BTW: There are no ex-marines, only lives ones & dead ones.

Besides which, Fotomat went to David Ritz and the Ritz chain's subsidiary Photronic. Ya gonna do satire, at least get da companies right!

OK. I win the "fool-of-the-day" award.

-- Anonymous99 (, April 23, 1999.

CJS - fault...not enough sleep...

Anon - I think we're neck and neck for that award today...
