havent posted in months. not much new concerning the american dream.
but did have a new development pop up. an odd contact with someone who said they read my blog. how they knew i even had a blog is beyond me. this person approached me at a local gas station and i was a little weirded out. i told him he must be mistaken and he replied, ‘nope, you are the madbuilder. someone i know said that you were the contractor on the house that the picture on your blog was taken’.
i replied,’ but i just found that picture and stuck it up there’
‘doubtful’ he said. ‘we want you to be our mouthpiece, we are preparing.’
i got quite nervous and it must have been pretty obvious because he continued and i will paraphrase his remarks because i cant say i have the ability to remember his remarks verbatim, and i dont doubt the dude will find me and let me know if i misrepresented his comments. i can honestly say i dont know why i am even writing this except for the fact that it was an interesting conversation that i admit i got sucked into.
the guy told me in an intelligent, even tone that shed my fears of his potential paranoia that he and many others believed (like so many others, sometimes myself) that the American republic is falling. i live in a small mountain town where i hear this a lot, usually from the obama-fearing-right-wing-tea-partiers that think we will be fine as long as a republican is elected president, which i agree is a joke. he then went on to describe the bipartisan corporatism, military industrial complex, and finacial industry as the culprits. he was basically throwing out the meme of a combined OWS and Tea Party nexus that many feel to be the backbone of a Ron Paul movement ideology. the difference according to him was that therse movements are most likely useless and that america is done. the ‘movement’ he is involved in is preparing for this, but according to him, ‘IN NO WAY INTERESTED IN REVOLUTION’ (exclamations reflecting adamancy).
what they want is to be prepared to ‘unite the northwest when the inevitable (according to him) fall of the empire occurs’. ‘establishing a new, smaller, feasible republic. formed by combining the current statehoods of Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Montana and Wyoming.
this creeped me out alittle since i knew at this moment that this guy or someone he knows in fact did see my blogname pop up somewhere. i made a post on zerohedge some time back saying (innocently) that maybe we in these five states should secceed form the union. i was just being dramatic. i told him about this post and he said that the plans were already being made, but it was not going to a seccesstion, it was going to be a wait and prepare for the inevitable situation.
i figure they linked to my blog after they read my posts on ZH (where i have linked my blog in the past- i know shameless PR) and there was a point where i mistakenly used my name on my blog and changed it a day later when i realized it. so they didnt have to be Columbo to figure it out i guess. trust me i know this sounds fucking dumb. regular secret service wanna-be shit, but i said for the time being i would throw out a tidbit here and there because in all honesty it isnt that far fetched- being prepared is smarter than being ignorant.
i hope nothing comes of it and that things get straightened out though i do doubt it. from this point on if i get some weird bastard comes up to me talking straight, i will post it but do not want to get my sorry ass thrown into gitmo, and if you start talking less preparaton and more revoltion i’m not your mouthpiece anymore. got it?
